    I show up in a wheelchair, the room is booked as accessible, I get to the room and it has a bath. I go back and complain, They give me a room with a wheel in shower. How hard is it to get this stuff right the first time. Otherwise our stay was pleasant. The place has the feel of student accommodation, but everything is there and the internet is free. The little fat statues are very interesting

    Historical Traveler Reviews DGI-byens Hotel Copenhagen

    Filthy and Basic

    from

    I have stayed in DGI Byens over 2006 Easter holidays and was appalled by the low levels of hygiene of the room. The room's laminate wooden floor hasn't been washed in months; you could see other people's footprints and boot prints all over the place. The furniture around the room has not been dusted at all and you could see a thick layer of black dust everywhere as the hotel is opposite the train station. When I complained about the state of the room I was assured it would be sorted, but nothing happened so I'll be writing a complaint but in the meanwhile I want to warn other people.

    The hotel advertises itself as "boutique", in fact there is nothing boutique about it except for the price - we paid around 110 per night, the same rate as in Marriott. The hotel is located next to a massive building site, so you have a choice of a room facing a train station or a building site. Plus hotel is only one block away from the red light district and if you overshoot even by one street when coming back after having a drink at night, you get surrounded by prostitutes and rough looking pimps. Not nice.

    Basic but functional

    from

    Typical scandanavian style - basic but has excelllent facilities along with a great location. Not only is the hotel sited next to Central station but is also behind the main stop for long distance coaches (e.g to malmo, berlin, oslo). A five minute walk takes you in to the heart of copenhagen and to the Storget (pedestrianised street).

    The hotel room exceeds three star standard with Free internet access in each room along with a great, clean and large bathroom. Rooms were kept tidy and were cleaned every day.

    The hotel complex itself was brilliant with several large pools and spa (all included in the price of the stay) along with a al-carte resteraunt and a cafe serving foods up until midnight.

    Staff and locals are very friendly and are more than willing to help (speaking very good english). There is never a long wait at the reception either.

    All in all the DGI Byens is an excellent choice

    Don't expect too much

    from

    Very basic hotel for the price, reasonable location, but not a lot of facilities and a bit uncomfy if you have to spend a long time in your room. Breakfast excellent, but again nowhere to get snacks or drinks if you haven't already picked them up before you go back to the hotel.

    YMCA????

    from

    I am normally good for selecting a hotel, but this time I got it wrong. When I entered the hotel lobby, which was very poorly decorated by Ikea look like a furnitures, I saw maniy kids in PJs!! Some were even holding a pillow...... I was confused. It was around 9:00PM but there was no one in the reception so I needed to wait until some one shows up, with those kids who sneaked out from their room. A women showed up about 10 min later but she was very moody and not nice.

    Room was large but very minimal which reminded me a room in private hospital, certainly not a 'designer hotel'.

    The hotel was very close to the sataion but it was behind the station, so it was little bit noisy. Able to walk to Tiboli park was plus but it was good 15min.

    I doubt their security policy. Anyone could go inside the hotel without being noticed because there was no door man, no concierge, and very often even no one at the reception. I also noticed many long distance night buses leaves front of the hotel i.e stockholm.

    Overall it was a good value in this expensive scandinavian world, but this hotel was more like a hostel than a hotel. Maybe good for family.

    Not bad, but not great, either

    from

    Good location, withon walking distance of Tivoli and everything else in the area. Spare, clean rooms. Bathrooms are clean, but very generic and the shower in my room tended to flood the rest of the room unless I was in and out of there very quickly. The buffet breakfast was just OK, and tended to be better on the mornings I got there earlier. Free internet access near the front desk.

    Warning: if you are taking the train from the airport, this is a bit of a hike with luggage in tow, even if relatively close to the station, which is across from Tivoli. Make sure you have luggage with wheels!

    Great for the kids

    from

    Modern hotel, very good location near to railway station and right next to the bus stop for the Bus connection to/from Malmo Stirup Airport . Hotel guests have free use to the public swimming pool which is on site and is an unusual shape.Great for the kids who will also enjoy the modern type diving boards and climbing wall, My daughter throughly enjoyed it Rooms are confortable with modern furniture, good sized bathroom (Also a hair dryer for guests) Buffet breakfast included which is of high standard. Hotel little bit expensive but worth it just for the sake of having the pool and ideal for the bus stop and station. Very short distance to the shops and sights.

    Little more than a Travel Lodge

    from

    The hotel dresses itself up as "Scandinavian Minimalist" which is just an excuse to disguise the fact that it is little more than a Travel Inn /Lodge. The bathrooms are very basic and the water in the shower was luke warm at best. The mirrors (at least in the room I stayed in) were poorly located - one being in the back of the wardrobe and the other in the bathroom was too high. On the plus side it is very centrally located and convenient and the buffet breakfast is good.

    Great hotel

    from

    Very close to the train station and walkable to other areas. The hotel is very clean and "Scandanavian" The rooms are some of the largest I have come across in Europe for a moderate price. The rooms are modern and comfortable. I would recommend it to all.

    Great value

    from

    This is a very central hotel at reasonable prices (compared to other hotels in the neighborhood). I stayed there on July 16th. Rooms are small, decorated in a very modern way (think Ikea). You are within 5 minutes by foot from the railway station, which in turn is right accross Tivoli (if you go there and like meat, make sure you check out the Valhal Restaurant in the park).

    The hotel is really an extension to a giant water sports center, to which all guests get free passes (closes at 6pm, so plan a morning visit if you arrive late). Breakfast was very adequate. A nice touch was complimentary high-speed internet in every room; if your laptop does not connect, try hotel's ethernet cables (they have them at the reception), it fixed my problem. This is Denmark, and 3 out of 4 movie-on-demand channels are hard-core porn; be aware of it if you travel with kids and they are in their own room (you won't fit more than two people into a single room).

    Great Hotel, very central

    from

    I stayed in The DGI-Byens hotel for valentines weekend with my boyfriend and the hotel was really clean, modern and soooo many facilities including swimming pools, restaurant, bar, gym, sauna, spa facilties. it was just great. when you walk outside the hotel it is only 5mins walk to everything in copenhagen city. id advise to get train straight from airport as the train is beside the hotel but there is not noise from railway.

    ... hotel but we decided we had lugged the bags far enough and took a cab. The hotel is a block from the waterfront and about half a mile from Nyhavn - one of the main tourist areas. Copenhagen is very expensive. A burger and fries in Nyhavn costs about $25.00 A donut at 7-11 costs about $3. We were able to find some good pasta in a nearby restaurant for about $15.00 apiece . Fortunately we get a buffet breakfast at the hotel.
