Unique B&B in Great Location

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jun 7, 2010
Excellent location in Copenhagen. Best value for your money. Best Danish bakery across street. People, listen to me.... if you want to experience a unique Danish home that dates from around the mid-15th century, this is the place for you. And, the price is right! However, if you want a squeaky clean hotel with pool access, cable television, room service, you might want to go ahead and consider spending $1,500 a night somewhere else. Trust me, the rooms were clean and nice and extremely unique AND you will not be able to find another place like this with half of its character. And, the price is the best you will find. Thank you to Morten Frederiksen [proprietor] for a wonderful Danish experience!

Reviewed March 31, 2010

I had a much better experience at Chicken's than the other TA reviewer. Our room was a comfortable double with a separate, shared bathroom. The 3 storey terrace is very old, but lovingly maintained by the old guy who lives on the top floor (Chicken, I presume). You are provided with a funny little printed guide to the local attractions and restaurant options, reviewed by Chicken, who has the dimensions of a man who would know good food! Particularly good is the bakery opposite, with incredible pastries, danish (obviously), and coffee.

Do you like to hear, with crystal clarity, people straining to use the restroom directly above your head? How about sharing a toilet with the shop next door so you are essentially peeing in a grocery store bathroom? Do you like pipe noise constantly and loudly emanating from the walls? Do you like being greeted with a huge list of things the proprietor doesn’t allow “in my house”? How about being told that there is kitchen access only to find that said access doesn’t include the privilege of heating anything up? How about your nice double being arranged such that the beds can never be closer than 5 feet from each other? How about the beds being too short for someone of average 5’10” height to actually lie down in comfortably? If all these things sound too good to be true, you’ll love Chicken’s Private Pension: the hotel that is basically like staying in a run down hostel, except you can’t use the kitchen.

More fun facts: Our double was a narrow L-shaped room with two very short beds next to the alley. Two of the lights were burnt out. Our trash was not taken out during our five day stay. The alley is very loud as it is full of garbage cans that are picked up in the early morning. Another shared toilet was just outside our room, it was dirty and had a large crack so you could see people inside it. This toilet was shared with the store next door. This toilet was frequently occupied by a lady who worked in the shop next door who came to sit in the bathroom with the door open and talk on her cell phone (because there was an outlet). Folks are allowed to smoke in all the rooms. Two children were washing their hair in the kitchen sink every morning. One of the showers has no door, just a curtain, making it awkward to share with other folks. The other shower leaks onto the floor.
