Have no doubt that this is a small hotel – and i do mean really compact. But it delivers despite its compactness. Firstly, the staff are First rate - really friendly and helpful. From the front desk to the breakfast staff and housekeeping, they make, in my opinion, the real heart of the hotel. Always ready with smiles and greetings,... More

This hotel presents well on various websites but be aware that it is located opposite a strip club on a road described by my taxi driver as "dirty"! The hotel itself is clean but the rooms are very small and were cold in December.

The change of brand has done wonders for this hotel! Rooms are nicer. Staff had always been very helpful. Hotel is only about 10 minutes walk from the central station. Lot of restaurants, shopping within a short walk from the hotel. Wish the hotel could have an in house restaurant.

Stayed there for one night in November 2014. Very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms as well as the rest of the hotel was spotlessly clean and the place has a cosy old charm feeling to it.

This is an excellent three star hotel in a fairly good but not fancy location, two blocks from Tivoli and the train station. It didn't make a great first impression, being across the street from a strip club, and our room was miniscule.

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
