    Historical Traveler Reviews Absalon Hotel Copenhagen

    A stroll from the central train station


    Price & location were the 2 factors that led me to staying at the Absalon and i was not disappointed.

    Location is very convenient, room clean & comfy except for a bit of street noise late at night (solution - close the window) & the breakfast very tasty and a huge variety buffet style.

    A impersonal tourist hotel but would stay there again.

    For train travellers


    We chose the Absalom because it was close to the station. Comng off the platform, turn left, go through the exit and you are a block away. There is a cluster of hotels including two Ibis in this area, which still has a few exotic cabaret venues for those who are so inclined. The Tivoli gardens are on the other side of the station, a very short walk and the central area is behind that. The rooms were comfortable, the breakfast was very good, no problems recommending it.

    Arriving by air, there is a very frequent train service to the main station.

    Ein schöner Ort zum Übernachten


    Uns hat der Aufenthalt hier sehr gefallen. Das Zimmer war sauber und komfortabel. Die Dusche war in einem anderen Raum als das WC. Das war ganz schön, vor allem, da beide Räume auch mit Waschbecken ausgestattet waren. Das Zimmer und die Nachbarn waren ruhig, das Personal angenehm und das Frühstücksbüfett sehr nett. Exzellente Lage, nur zwei Straßen vom Bahnhof entfernt.

    A fine place to stay


    We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was clean and comfortable. The shower was in a separate room from the WC which was nice, both rooms had wash basins. Room and neighbors were quiet, staff was pleasant and helpful, and the breakfast buffet was quite nice. Excellent location just 2 blocks from the train station.

    Wonderful staff


    I stayed at the Absalon for nearly a week and had a great time. The room was spacious and well kept. The location was very quiet. It is a much bigger hotel than I would normally stay in and it was so wonderfully peaceful. The location couldn't be better! I wanted to visit a few places outside Copenhagen by train so being just so close to the train station couldn't be better. The breakfast was fresh and filling, the danish pastries were the best I've ever tasted! The staff were helpful and friendly, always with a smile on their face. My room overlooked a courtyard, which seemed little used, but was neat and tidy. The only night of disturbance I had was from the Tivoli fireworks as Tivoli is just the other side of the station, but Tivoli do not do their fireworks every night, so peace reigned! It is everso easy to get from the hotel to any tourist attraction, as Copenhagen is not a huge city so walking isn't too bad. I'd certainly stay again!

    Stay here and you shouldn't be disappointed.


    Good value hotel. Stay here and you shouldn't be disappointed.

    I stayed here for 2 nights in July and found the Absalon to be a good choice with regards to its price and location. It's just around the corner from the central train station and it's less than 5 minutes to Tivoli. Bedroom and bathroom were basic but were clean and tidy. Breakfast was plentiful with lots of bread, rolls, hams, cheeses, fruit and pastries and the staff were very polite and helpful. If I ever go back to Copenhagen, I would look to stay here first.

    Good enough but a little pricey for what you get


    We came to Absalon after staying in a TINY room in Stockholm so it seemed like a palace to us. However, we would never have stayed in a place like that in the U.S., not for the price we paid (nearly $200/night). The size was fine and the room appeared clean but the hotel just seemed worn out. The carpet in the hallways was worn thin and the whole place smelled like stale smoke. We had a non-smoking room but we could tell that it had been smoked in many times in the past. It's also worth noting, for non-smokers, that the lobby and part of the dining room (for the free breakfast) were smoking areas. Some good things I should mention: there was a computer with free internet access off of the lobby and the breakfast was decent.

    Good 3 days


    Best to go Thursday to Saturday night. Hotel was perfectly situated by the station and short walk to Town Centre/Hall. Easy to walk around and take in the sites. Avoid the " British Pubs" and find a local Danish Bar, much cheaper ! Be careful of the cycle lanes as the cyclists do not stop even if they see you. Hotel staff friendly and helpful, breakfast enjoyable. I would use this Hotel as a base again.

    Impressive city


    Arrived in Copenhagen, to cold weather about 3degrees, with a chill in the air. Transportation very good, buses and trains great if you hold a copenhagen card ,which can be bought most places, then you travel free around the city. we chose to walk and found most sights of interest quite easily, and was really enjoyable walking throught the many cobbled streets , seeing the lovely statues, and buildings around the city. lots of places to visit, from madame tussauds wax museum, ripleys museum of wierd phenomenon, carlsberg brewery, the little mermaid, tivoli gardens, and much more. i felt 2 nights inthe city was nice but not long enough to see everything at leisure. Very busy with bustling people, over the weekend, lots of nationalities, great city atmosphere , buzzing at night time. brilliant nightlife opportunities, but quite expensive to eat and drink out. Great variety of bars and restaurants offering many kinds of menu to suit every taste, but not all budgets.

    Tivoli Gardens, was pretty. we went at night time, all lit up and christmasy, great rides for kids, wonderful cheery atmosphere, ice rink, shops, and little stalls to spend your money.

    Hotel Absalon, was great. highly recommend this hotel, we had an upper floor room which was lovely. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly, spoke great english, and full of advice to get the most out of our trip. Close to Central station, and close to Tivoli.

    Would definatly stay there again. Wonderful breakfast here,every morning, attentive staff, and friendly atmosphere.

    Thoroughly enjoyed walking around the city and window shopping, but the only draw back, i think, is its quite expensive. other than that, brilliant escape away, with a cultural city buzz.

    Very nice hotel.


    Spent four nights in this Hotel in October, Not the annex , the Main Hotel. Paid extra for the (private) top floor, and well worth it,a very comfortable room. Extra's as in Free Movie channel, fridge in room,(2 water,2beer-free everyday)Ice machine on landing. Only quibble..top floor rooms seem to be extremely warm, underfloor heating in bathroom, hard to walk on! Very central location, 5 mins from train station, about 10 mins from main centre. Excellent Breakfast. Tip ; Off peak times..check with driver of sightseeing bus..the EXACT times of last trip, etc. We bought two day ticket, only to find on day two the other trips werent running.! Day trip to Malmo worth it also, very pretty city. Both places a little expensive though. Didnt find much shopping in either.

    ... took one breath and complained so I did so as well and moved to a cabin that was clean and slept well.*

    My first interaction in Copenhagen was with an information person who watched me be interrupted by two people; she told me off for being too patient and was extra helpful as a result. She suggested I take the train however when I asked two guards which platform they said I had to walk as it was only half an hour. They proceeded ...

    ... on. I think in Oslo it was $9 to take a tram one way. It was $12 for a beer!! They're also not on the euro so I have coins from Denmark, Sweden, and Norway that are hard to tell apart. I will really miss the scenic sea side views in Scandinavia but I have to say it'll be kinda nice to save a couple bucks.

    Arrived in Copenhagen mid-afternoon and made ...

    ... when he asked me what I wanted to do. Of course, I
    wanted to go see Copenhagen, particularly certain "touristy" icons,
    such as "The Little Mermaid" statue and Amelienborg Palace, but that
    first day, the only important thing to do was to get to know this branch of my
    family while ingesting as much of the new environment as possible in a relaxed
    setting with no particular itinerary. I felt that this would be the best way to
    gain a ...
