Historical Traveler Reviews Avenue Hotel Copenhagen Frederiksberg
My friend & I stayed at the Avenue Hotel in March. The hotel is about 15 min walk from the centre of Copenhagen, but there is a good bus link just outside (which goes all the way to the Airport) and there is also a metro station close by. Because you are not in the centre, the prices for this hotel are excellent for the quality of accommodation etc. The breakfast selection was plentiful and varied and the room, although not exactly large was certainly adequate for a weekend stay.
Although the reception staff were very friendly and helpful, the service was somewhat slow and we had some confusion over our booking - they had allocated a double room, despite being told more than once that we required a twin; however, they did sort this out (but it took 45 mins to prepare a room!)
I should also like to recommend the Azori - a Moldavan restaurant close to Christiansborg. Great food, friendly service and very reasonable prices.
Rock down to Hotel Avenue!!
This Hotel was lovely. Nice clean rooms with lovely furniture and a nice plasma TV with cable. Friendly helpful staff. More than adequate buffet breakfast. Metro station around the corner and a bus stop right outside that will take you into town (5mins ride if that). Shops and restraunts close by if you fancy staying local. Only complaint would be the out of order elavator which didn't go down well when we left as we were on the top floor! I would definatley go back.
Rumours of high prices are true but don't let this deter you as you do get what you pay for. You will need to take out a small mortage if you want a slap up meal (or a few drinks for that matter). Would recommend the Calsberg museum, about £5 to get in and two free beers which is the best deal in town (street value of £12 here). However, a decent hotel for a beautiful city in lovely clean Scandanavia! A must during a trip to Europe.
I have just returned from a weekend break at this hotel in copenhagen and cannot fault the hotel which has just been refurbished to a high standard. The only thing missing was the use of a lift which was being updated so had to walk up 4flights of stairs each time. If going to this city I would advise taking tea bags if you need an english cuppa as we were only able to get flavoured or earl grey. The staff were all very helpful as regards eating venues and bus times etc. The bus to the airport stops outside and costs 28k. The city square is about a ten to fifteen min. walk and by bus costs 18k. Only thing lacking when i went was good weather so hope you have better luck!
Loved the Decor
The hotel has a very modern, minimalistic decor which is very chic. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the hotel lounge is very relaxing. The complimentary wireless internet access is brilliant. The room decor match the rest of the theme but the plumbing was playing up a bit producing an unpleasant smell. Lift was out of action during our stay and breakfast is perhaps lacking in choice. They don't have a toaster to make toasts. However, it is a clean, modern hotel and well located for a stroll into the city centre and is also very quiet.
Great hotel ,great staff
Well located hotel, easy to get to centre (walk or bus). Very friendly staff, all of them.Very professionally run, relaxing decor. Great value. Will recommend to all our friends.
We chose this hotel after seeing it on the internet and reading other reviews. It is newly refurbished, very clean with lovely comfortable bedrooms and underfloor heating in the bathrooms. The special offer price made it very good value. The hotel is about a 15 - 20 minute walk from the centre of the city but there is a bus stop right outside the hotel where you can get a bus which runs every 20 minutes to central station and the airport. The staff are very friendly and helpful and all speak English. The breakfast was ok, a typical cold buffet. We would certainly use it on our next trip to Copenhagen.
Beautiful hotel but a little far from the city
Dates of stay: 2-4 December 2005
Accommodation: Double room
This hotel has a beautiful modern design with spacious, nicely decorated rooms. Ours had a flat screen TV mounted to the wall and a warm, thick comforter for the bed. Rooms were cleaned daily and the hotel itself well maintained. The lounge is also very cosy and drinks are reasonably priced. Breakfast included with the room was just okay - not a big selection and mostly breads and cheeses.
The hotel is a fair walk from the city centre (about 30 mins to Tivoli Gardens) and taxis in Denmark are expensive. We were only there for a weekend and as such, did not take the opportunity to try public transport.
Overall, the hotel itself is great and I'd recommend it to anyone who is not concerned with proximity to the sights. Otherwise, you may want to stay somewhere more central.
Good Value Hotel
Stayed at the Avenue for 3 nights in a family room for 4. The room was hugh with pleanty of room for us all. Room and bathroom were very clean and well maintained.
The only downside to the room was it was normally a triple and they used a foldout bed for the fourth bed which wasn't very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent with a hugh range to choose from and the would also cook extra items to order.
The location is about 10 to 15 minutes walk from the center of town and the railway station but in an interesting area with plenty of shops and restauants. Certainly would rather this area than the seedy area along side the main station.
We booked on line directly with the Hotel and the service was great both when booking and when we were at the hotel. They have special deals and we were able to save 350 kroner per night compared to the normal price.
Would definitely stay there again.
Hotel for Two Great!
This hotel was perfect. It was about a ten minute walk from the train line and right on the bus route to the airport (45 minute ride). The hotel is being renovated and the rooms we stayed in were already finished. There were new fixtures and nice furniture. Lots of good television channels. A free breakfast was offered and there was a variety of items to choose from. I would definitely recommend staying here. The rooms were not the largest, but for college kids traveling or non-picky people, it would be great.
We nearly stayed here.
We got to this hotel having booked a package through out travel agent, only to be told that we had no booking.
But I thought I would write a review anyway.
At the time this hotel was undergoing an external facelift so was coverred in scaffold etc. On getting inside it was very cosy. Our booking had been messed up by our agent, but the staff at this hotel looked after us very well while they contacted our agent to sort
things out, and from what we saw, If we went back to Copenhagen again we would consider this hotel.

If I were to imagine the 9-to-5 commute, I'd taste Starbucks, hear NPR, and see my Facebook news feed. However, when I grab my bag and head out the door, my reality does not reflect my imagination:

There was a modern art exhibition. Consisting of one room. Very small. Again small, not my style of modern art but yeah it was also okay. Above this exhibition was the Lesbian's live in Malmo Exhibition. It was okay again. I didn't mind some of it. Some aspects did not work and that was a shame. They played a documentary/art film ...
... stroll or bike through. Death had a different meaning here and I like it. The cemetery in Norrebro was beautiful and contrary to American cemeteries there are so many more plants. Mourning is seen as a private thing so around the stones and graves there are a lot of plants or trees, so you can mourn privately. It was so nice to see all the different flowers and it was just beautiful. I even found a grave site from the late 1700s. I biked the rest of the way home. ...
Another full day and boarded the ship with 5 mins to spare. Lynn was getting a bit worried that we would miss the ship! Lynn and I watched the ship approaching Copenhagen while Kieran and Lucy got their showers. We were nearly knocked down by the joggers and power walkers. It was quite warm but there were some showers in the morning, not bad and cleared up,quickly. We decided to take one of the hop on hop off buses that were parked right ...
When I smelled hotdogs in the baggage claim area, my senses finally caught up with my body, registering that I was - in fact - in Copenhagen and exercising my answer to "So, what are you doing after Colby?". After getting our luggage (2 suitcases for the immigrant and 2 for the shopper), Mark and I tore off the baggage tags saying "BOS" in an attempt to dissuade customs from checking Mark's unclaimed and untaxed goods. We smuggled without problem and ...
