“Great location, nice folks, adequate room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

The consensus of the other reviews is accurate: the location is great, the rooms are OK. (I was staying by myself, and a good thing, too, as the bed was a twin. Room couldn't really have fit a larger bed comfortably.) Danish decor in full display in the lobby, although you have to pay extra for one of the "design rooms" to get the full effect. (My room seemed pretty much designed by Ikea.) Yes, things are a little dinged up in places, but the courteous and helpful staff more than make up for this. I'd recommend this hotel to somebody who wants convenience, and isn't going to be spending too much time in his or her room.

Room Tip: some reviewers complained about noise; I could see how that might be a problem if your room overlook...

We stayed at the Hotel Alexandra in October 2011 for 4 nights arriving late on a Friday evening and departing on Tuesday morning to travel to Stockholm.

Both being fans of design we chose this hotel above others in Copenhagen due to the design element featured. Upon entering the hotel you immediately see some classic pieces of furniture in the lobby/reception area together with a good collection of design books.

We chose a Classic Danish Design Room which features furniture from a single Danish designer. The room was reasonable size, good comfy bed, small sofa and table and a compact shower room.

The hotel does not make out to be 5 stars and it's not. In my opinion it is a 3 star hotel. The rooms would benefit from a fresh coat of paint and a little modernisation, the bathrooms in particular would benefit from an upgrade.

But that's not the point of staying at Hotel Alexandra. You stay here for your love of Danish design that is not only in each room but is scattered throughout the hotel in the lobby, corridors, etc.

Location is great, it's only a short walk into the main areas of Copenhagen and getting around a city so flat is painfree. Breakfast, whilst not included in our rate, was ok but the restaurant was being refurbished which may had added to the service. We ate out most mornings.

Would I re-visit? It would certainly be a hotel we would consider but there are no doubt other 'design' hotels in Copenhagen that we would possibly go for somewhere else.

My room was nice but small, the breakfast and restaurant were really nice, good Vietnamese food and fantastic freshly squeezed OJ in the mornings at extra cost but so worth it.

Staff could have been a little more helpful and I am not a demanding person.

Close to the center of things and nice to not be in a big hotel chain for a change. bathroom was not great and the place was a little on the noisy side.

What does "average" mean? If you think it means that it meets the bare threshold to offer a nice place to stay, but without going the extra mile, then the Alexandra meets that definition.

The Alexandra isn't a bad place, not at all. And it's location is superb, being right in the heart of downtown Copenhagen.

But everything else about the place speaks "average" to me. Service was good, but not great. Amenities were good, but not great. The rooms were your of your typical European 2 to 3 star variety (small rooms, and even small bathrooms).

Don't get me wrong. There's not a bad thing about this place. It's adequate for those of us simply looking for a place to lay our heads at night in a very convenient location. But if your looking for pampering, preening, and other similar bells and whistles, then you may want to look elsewhere.

Location: Very close to the city center, very convenient
Check in & welcome: Warm, friendly and fast
Room: Very small room, not enough space for suitcase, noisy, because room was towards the street and the walls are very thin, mattress could be better, free Wifi, bathroom was very small and terribly old fashioned (like 100 years ago)
Hotel furniture: Great Danish design chairs and furniture all over the place!
Breakfast: Nice, served in the Asian restaurant
Check out: fast and professional

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Probably the only spot on Earth where you can sit in, rest in, sleep in and admire so many pieces of Danish mid-century vintage furniture. Hotel Alexandra is a small, authentic, boutique hotel in Copenhagen - just around the corner of the City Hall Square, the Latin Quarter, the main shopping area and Tivoli Garden. Hotel Alexandra has over the past years collected a large collection of the world famous Danish mid-century vintage furniture and decorated the rooms with them. The rooms also have textiles, wallpapers and other gems that take you back in time to experience living like the design loving Danes did it in the 50’s and 60’s. As soon as you step into the Hotel Alexandra, you step into a time bubble – you can relax in the lobby, where during evening hours you can put on your favourite vinyl record from our selection, enjoy a free glass of wine and take a moment to take a closer look at one of our many designer books from our lobby library, all the while being surrounded by the finest Danish designer furniture. ... more   less
