Historical Traveler Reviews Ascot Hotel Copenhagen
Insgesamt ein großartiges Erlebnis
Für zwei Studenten auf Urlaub in Kopenhagen war dieser Ort perfekt. Das Personal war sehr hilfsbereit, das Frühstück lecker und die Lage großartig! Es gab kostenloses Wireless Internet im Hotel, aber Vorsicht, nicht in allen Zimmer konnte man das Signal empfangen und man musste dann in die Lobby gehen. Das Zimmer war sauber und das Bett komfortabel. Wir hatten dort ein sehr schöne Zeit.
Overall great experience
For two college students on vacation in Copenhagen, this place was perfect. The staff was extremely helpful, the breakfast was delicious, and the location was great! Free wireless internet is available in the hotel, but be aware many rooms do not receive a signal, so you often have to go down to the lobby areas for a strong wireless signal. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable -- we had a great time overall.
The location is really good, short walk everywhere. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the reception and breakfast rooms lovely. However the room was very stuffy (no air conditioning) and the bed was uncomfortably soft. The pillows were non existent and the decoration in the room was 80's stlye. I didn't mind the decoration but there is a nightclub nearby which is very noisy all through Saturday night. The bathroom was clean though and it was an adequate size room. I would imagine that this hotel is suitable if you only want location.
Decent value for Typical European Hotel
I was scared off from this hotel by other reviews, but booked it because everything under $500USD was full. I was pleasantly suprised. We were in the Ascot Apartments part of the hotel. The room was quite large. There was a small kitchenette. There was a room with toilet and sink, then a separate room for shower plus sink. There were three of us, so we had one large room with two beds and a small room with one bed. It was clean and staff was nice.
The only drawbacks were: no airconditioning; had to carry luggage up 4 steps to reach the elevator; and from the lobby, had to go back on the street and walk about 20 meters to the entrance to the apartments. This entrance was only opend by a key card, so it was secure.
It was a good value for the money and VERY close to the train station and Tivoli. I would stay there again.
Nice breakfast but bad quality of rooms
The hotel is centrally located and easy accessed by public transport, for example from the airoport. The room however (at least the single room I have stayed in) was very small and dusty. I had to keep window open in rather cold whether, just to keep away the smell of dust. The benefits are nice breakfast and wireless internet included into the price of the room. Otherwise rather poor quality and disappointment regardless of rather friendly presonal.
After reading the other reviews I thought I had an idea of what I was coming to. Yes, and no. There's no doubt that this place is a bit of a weird mix of styles, and in need of some renovations.
On check-in I was put into a very musty, dark, smoking room, after requesting non-smoking. Not only that, but it seriously needed some attention. Mis-matched furniture, wardrobes with doors hanging off....not good.
The staff here are very nice and extremely helpful, so there was no problem in changing. The room I was moved to was much better, with a large living area, sofa, desk, and 2 single beds, kitchenette, and large bathroom. Only downside? It was near a main road, which required the purchase of earplugs from the local chemist.
I found it a pleasant change to have a small kitchen with an electric hob and crockery, that was a nice surprise.
There was no restaurant for lunch, or evening meals but the breakfast was very nice, fresh and had a wide selection of fresh breads, pastries, fruit, and other usual breakfast fare.
It is a very central hotel, right near the train station, and the Tivoli, if that's your type of thing.
If you are used to Hilton/Marriott/Novotel, this isn't the place for you.
Brilliant breakfasts,and centrally sited, but somewhat weird setup. The hotel management has taken over apartments as well as a large ex-bathhouse in central Copenhagen and has trouble managing it all. Everything freshly painted and refurbed, but poorly maintained. Rooms did not have additional pillows, blankets. Hotel instructions were absent in one room, duplicated in another. We asked for but did not get a nonsmoking room (though nonsmoking rooms are available in one wing). Our booking was not taken for all the period, so we were shifted halfway through our stay, from an 'interesting' penthouse apartment, with nice views and semi-public walkway/balconies, and no functioning lights in the living area or lift lobby, to a large double room with an interconnecting door to another suite - which was opened by a surprised other hotel guest! For a truly unique experience, you could enjoy this. For a peaceful stopover - you are taking a chance.
Decent value option
Common areas, breakfast room, breakfast and location are great. Guest rooms could stand a rehab. Also, our room was supposedly nonsmoking but was a bit musty. Currently a decent value option. If they did rehab the rooms it would be a very good hotel.
Well located hotel, but badly furnished, without air conditioned, my room had a view to inside patio, with old carpet on the floor, didn't like the bed, which had no sheet under the edredon. To get the picture: the bathroom door didn't close.
Too much money for so little quality.
Stayed there begining of August 2004.

... It's kind of intuition. Oslo just didn't sit as well as what Copenhagen did. We saw a lovely looking homeless guy with his doggy on the streets and I off loaded a lot of expensive coin to him (the dog in the wet rain under this guys coat totally pulled on my heartstrings). No apologies are required to the budget. Sogndal, Norway It's a new day, and we pick up our wheels for the next week from Oslo. We are back on the road again. Driving in other ...
... modes, which I know from experience that the U.S. is sorely lacking. I have heard from fellow travelers that the Swedish facilities pale in comparison to Copenhagen’s, so I suppose the city has a reputation to live up to.
Either way, I still have much to learn about this infrastructure functions, how the culture grew in the first place and what elements of the bigger picture could be adaptable ...
... pulling our suitcases (or Peter pulling them!) and realised that there were a lot of steps up to the second floor! Tine was so welcoming - she is a half Danish and half Brazilian who teaches Portuguese language and her place reflects her interests. Books, music and art everywhere and she apparently entrusts it all to the strangers who stay there! It had a lovely homely feeling and even had a piano and guitar.
No travel day ...
... for lunch for the week. Years ago, one of these meetings resulted in the students deciding that they wanted to paint the school, so while there are some slight limitations, the students have free reign over how the walls look. They're not all graffiti - I guess the individual homerooms (for lack of a better word) get to choose what they want their class to be, so the classes tend to be very different. Gabby said that her class found all ...

Once we did this we has lunch. I had a stake, Maggie had a burger. Although we were full we then got a slice of cheese cake. This was decedent. really really rich.
We then made out way back to the hostel via some shops. Caught the bus to the airport line. Almost missing the bus we made it and got our flight ...
