This place was nice an central. The staff was very helpful gave me nice suggestions about resturants and shopping. The room clean and nice but quite small. I Love Copenhagen and will probably live somewhere else next time but i do recomend it.

Made the reservation through Booking.com - a "pay-at-hotel" rate. They immediately charged my CC. Had to have them reverse - took too long. Then after I contacted them to confirm reservation, they charged my CC again - before stay! So, the reservation was changed to the "sister" Hotel - MAYFAIR - around the block (Adjoining Courtyards). Spent two nights in... More

The First Hotels chain offers quite a lot for the cost. The breakfasts were amazing, the rooms are comfortable and the Staff were all very friendly and helpful. I hope to get back to Copenhagen and will definitely stay at one of their hotels again.

I stayed there for 3 days with 4 of my friends for a weekend of fun in Copenhagen. The location is excellent, close to the central station and downtown Copenhagen. I had a single room. The size was as expected (small, but fair enough), cleaning was excellent, and I think it must have been refurbished recently. The price was also... More

Nice stuff, clean rooms, easy access and fast from Central Station, close to many places for eat or fun. Easy and fast access to Tivoli or to Stroget (famous walking street). Good signal of wi-fi, without noise all the day/night.

My friend and I stood here for 3 nights and it was okay, nothing too great and nothing horrible. The room was very small but we didn't mind since we were out a lot. We did find that it was a little on the pricier side, perhaps because it was during the weekend or it might be because it was... More

Great location for travelling around Copenhagen. Refurbishment in progress but disruption to guests kept to a minimum. Twin room small but adequate for a short stay. Room clean and fresh. Staff friendly.

Very good location and service, fine breakfast (but it wasn't 7:00-11:00, we couldn't get coffee after 10:30 and everything was already cleaned). Reasonable price. We were not satisfy with bed and tv-chanels.

Had originally booked another hotel and was transferred here due to overbooking - stayed in a so-called "superior" double-room; Despite being alone, I found to fairly small with no floor space for luggage and only a very tiny work area with a chair that did not allow for a decent working position. The mattresses were of the super soft kind,... More

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.
