Historical Traveler Reviews Axel Guldsmeden - Guldsmeden Hotels Copenhagen
The Best Hotel in Copenhagen
Let me first say that I am qualified to write this review as I have traveled around the globe and have stayed at hundreds of five star hotel properties. I found this hotel a true delight. The staff was extremely polite and courteous and very helpful. The facility is brand new and the room was delightful and packed with numerous special touches. I cannot begin to describe the numerous little touches that one never sees during their hotel experience. The breakfast was extensive and seating was abundant and the before dinner complimentary cocktail was just one more special touch. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and I truly enjoyed making many new friends with the wonderful hotel staff. I plan to return to Copenhagen this spring and can assure you I will be booking my entire stay at this facility.
Dieses wunderschöne Hotel hält alles, was es auf seiner Website verspricht. Es ist brandneu, im Ökostil gehalten, Atmosphäre ist entspannend, und nach einem langen Tag voller Besichtigungen in Kopenhagen kann man hier so richtig abschalten. Betten sind sehr bequem, Bettdecken daunenweich... Frühstück ist einfach superlecker - und alles biologisch! Personal ist nett, freundlich, hilfsbereit... Auch die Lage ist sehr praktisch - das Hotel ist in einer ruhigen Straße, und trotzdem scheint alles nur um die Ecke zu sein - Bahnhof, Tivoli, Geldautomat, Lebensmittelladen mit langen Öffnungszeiten... Dieses Hotel hat wirklich zu unserem wunderschönen Urlaub beigetragen.
Cet hôtel charmant offre vraiment tout ce qu'il promet, si vous allez voir leur site internet. Il est flambant neuf, la décoration est "bio", l'ambiance est très reposante, on peut vraiment souffler après une journée complète d'excursions autour de Copenhague. Les lits sont très confortables, les couettes sont très douces... Le petit déjeuner est succulent (et bio!). Le personnel est gentil, aimable, serviable... L'hôtel est bien situé, dans une rue calme, et pourtant, tout a l'air d'être à portée de main - la gare, Tivoli, les distributeurs d'argent, le 7-Eleven... Cet hôtel a vraiment contribué au succès de nos merveilleuses vacances.
This lovely hotel is everything it promises if you look at their website. It's brand new, made in organic style, atmosphere is relaxing, you can realy unwind after the whole day of sightseeing around Copenhagen. Beds are so comfy, duvee so fluffy... Breakfast is just yummy - and also organic! Personnel is nice, friendly, helpful... Location is also very convenient - it's in a quiet street, but at the same time everything seems to be just around the corner - train station, tivoli, atm, 7/11... This hotel really contirbuted to our lovely holiday.
Questo bell'hotel è davvero come lo si vede dal sito internet. E' nuovissimo, creato in stile organico, l'atmosfera è rilassante, ci si rilassa davvero dopo una giornata intera a visitare Copenhagen. I letti sono molto comodi, e il piumino così morbido...la colazione è squisita - e molto varia! Il personale è cordiale, gentile, efficiente... La posizione è anche molto comoda - si trova in una strada tranquilla, ma allo stesso tempo sembra che ci sia tutto dietro l'angolo - la stazione del treno, tivoli, atm, 7/11...Questo ha davvero contribuito a rendere la nostra vacanza molto piacevole.
A Jewel in Copenhagen's Crown
This hotel is a short walk from the station in Copenhagen. No need for a taxi unless the uneven cobblestone footpaths pose a problem for the pedestrian. It is situated in a quiet side street and access to the hotel is by way of card which guarantees the guest a certain amount of privacy and security. The premises has been newly refurbished. The bedrooms are small containing four poster beds, wooden floorboards and persian rugs (decorated along a japanise/sea shore theme) There is a large open closet for hanging clothes. Linens are spotless on double beds which are slightly ajar from one another, each side containing its own downy duvet. The dining room is light and airy and a delicious organic breakfast is included in the price of the room. A complimentary drink of wine is offered on arrival, but no meals are served on the premises, except for breakfast which is served until 11 am. Tivolii Gardens is a very short distance away and it contains lots of wonderful restaurants. The Hard Rock Cafe is also walking distance. Overall, a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone contemplating a break in Copenhagen.
Sophisticated & very good value
This was the third hotel on our week-long stay in Denmark. This was far and away the best, the Hotel is currently incomplete as they are still working on the spar/pool etc. The receptionists are always helpful, the bar downstairs feels more like a lounge, we invited some friends over and managed to drink there all night (this was also the cheapest place to drink I saw in Denmark). the breakfast was organic and particularly nice. The rooms, although not very big were well equiped (LCD on the wall and a DVD player and a nice faux suede couch), we had a four-poster bed which was very comfortable. The bathroom had a walk-in shower & granite sink.
The only negatives were that there was no air conditioning which you will find very hard to find anywhere else, the corridors are very narrow so if you are over 150 kilos (which I'm not) you may need prising out, our room was too small for a cot so we just didn't bother with one, the bed was massive so it didn't matter.
I paid DKK1,255 which to me seemed very good value in a country as expensive as Denmark is, and that's coming from someone living in London.
This hotel company had a sophisticated, upscale website which did not appear snooty. The Axel property just underwent a renovation, & we thought it would be fresh & inviting. It exceeded our expectations in every category! Fabulous design & sensual appeal throughout hotel, including unique Tahitian themed furnishings. Staff very friendly, helpful & enthusiastic about the property. Rooms immaculate, beds very comfortable, but bathroom with carved stone sink & open shower was the best! Even the hotel-branded soaps were outstanding! Organic breakfast was incredible, especially home baked breads & vanilla yogurt with almonds & honey! One aspect of the location was a bit negative- lack of good restaurants in immediate area, but convenient to train station & Tivoli. I would recommend highly, & would return.
Great Small Hotel Pick in Copenhagen
The former Triton has been remodeled and opened, probably a bit prematurely, as the Axel in May. When we were there in late June the hammers and saws were apparent everywhere and provided early AM wake up calls. The elevator was only working intermittently. The rooms are small even by European standards, but very comfortable and modern.
The staff is exceptionally engaging and helpful. The breakfast was over the top outstanding with really exceptional home baked breads and pastries.
The neighboorhood is an up and coming location with some funky exotica places nearby, but certainly very safe. The proximity to most of the important Copenhagen sites and restaurants is very good, and Tivoli garden is a short walk away. We felt the hotel represented a good value in an expensive city, especially after the construction work is completed.

... taken care of. Saturday I said goodbye in Randers with a family breakfast, lots of cake and farewell on the train station. Sunday consisted of visits in Copenhagen, more cake, a big steak for dinner, mental preparations and minimal amounts of sleep before it was time to go to the airport at 5 am. Now awaits a 4 hour wait in London, a very long flight to Hong Kong and finally arrival at Kota Kinabalu airport tomorrow at 11 am local time. Borneo, here we ...
... watching. A wonderful lively atmosphere.
We took the bus home, and had some dinner that we picked up from the food market we visited in the morning.
When I look back at everything we did today, I'm pretty impressed! We have certainly taken on Copenhagen and won. Anne and Ida asked me if my dad would be proud of the type of fast, walking, efficient day we had, and I think he most definitely would. Definitely a Fisher type sight-seeing day :)
... way and couldn't remember how to get there. After taking a detour, we found them! The national bird of Denmark is the swan, and I see them everywhere. There are always several at the lakes, which is why I wanted to take Lindsey there.
Lindsey's flight left at 8:30, so I walked her to the train station at 6. There was a minor dilemma getting her ticket, with the machine not accepting her card and then only taking coins not bills… We went to McDonalds ...
