Historical Traveler Reviews Copenhagen Plaza
This is a four-star hotel adjacent to the train station and across the street from Tivoli. The single room I was given was relatively small, yet contained all the amenities I needed including a nice view of Tivoli. It's a much smaller hotel than I expected, essentially a boutique hotel, and the folks at the desk couldn't have been nicer. The breakfast was a top-notch buffet. To be candid, the location is both an advantage (I thought it was great) and a potential problem, given the noise factor, but if you close the window and turn on the a/c I found no significant street noise interfering with sleep. This hotel is probably not as deluxe as the Radisson SAS across the street, but it offers better deals pricewise--go through Sofitel's website and check out the internet specials. Overall I'd rate this hotel as excellent and good value if you can swing a special with breakfast.
Great hotel in a great location. Stayed here for 5 nights while in Copenhagen on business.
Decor in the rooms lovely and everything perfectly clean. Room service from the in-house restaurant Flora Danica was to die for, and breakfast room service each day was also great.
Staff were always very courteous and helpful.
My only two (tiny) gripes are that the rooms were way too hot and you couldn't control the temperature in your own room (the airconditionseemed to be turned off) and my room was on the railway station side so was noisy with the windows open.
In saying that, I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Not so great
Location is fine, staff cordial, rooms average. I asked if the room they had for me had a view and king sized bed. I was told yes to both....was stuck in a room with 2 double beds on the first floor with a view of the train station. These people are not so bright, this place blows.
Convenient and Brilliant
Me and my girlfriend recently stayed in the Sofitel for 4 nights as we were offered some great rates and found dome dirt cheap flights to go with it. The hotels location is fantastic, it is directly opposite the Tivoli Gardens which have to be visited and a minutes walk from attractions like Stroget. There are some fantastic cosmopolitain restaurants and bars nearby including sports bars that play English footy, brilliant! The hotel is opposite the train station and near the main road but despite this, there is no outside noise due to the well glazed windows. The hotel is very comtemporary and has an elizabethian feel about it, we did not sample the restaurant as there are cheaper eateries in town but the Library Bar is very nice, although be prepared for the London prices! Copenhagen is definately worth a visit, it has a bit of New York and London about it, the hotel staff and the people in general are friendly and helpful and you instantly feel welcome. The Sofitel cannot be beaten on convenience.
Great service, wonderful hotel in wonderful Copenhagen!
My boyfriend and I had just stayed at this hotel mid-July 2004 for 3 nights. The hotel is in a great location, across the street is Tivoli and the main rail station is also across the street, which was very convenient for us(especially since we used the trains a lot when travelling from once city to the next in Europe). The hotel has a nice lobby and beautiful library bar. The most important thing, the staff was very helpful and nice. When our airline lost my boyfriend's luggage, the hotel was very helpful in trying to contact the airline and was persistant in trying to locate my boyfriend's luggage. The airline was no help to us, but the hotel concierge and staff was always willing to help. He finally got the luggage, 2 days later. The only thing I can say negative about the hotel is the shower. It's a very strange design and the water isn't strong enough. But overall, I would still give this a 5 star hotel. Copenhagen is a great, clean, fun city and a must visit, and Sofitel Plaza is a nice place to stay!
Review of Sofitel Copenhagen Hotel
Very convenient from airport to Central station, walk out the front of the station and the Sofitel was right there. No taxi or dragging your bags!.. People extremely caring and gracious. Rooms very large, twin beds, clean, minibar, hair-dryer. Buffet breakfast in AM very good. Bathroom was quite large, beautiful tile and granite etc. and had a huge shower area, but no tub. ALso, the room had a safe for valuables which was a plus. One thing I would have enjoyed in the room was a coffee/teamaker. Overall, hotel was great and we would certainly stay there again. THis hotels location can not be beat.
What a great place.... funky and old with lots of history. If you are looking for the traditional scandanavian design, this is not it, but comfortable and cosy. Rooms are smallish, but bed is comfortable and lots of closet space. High speed works great! The halls could use a coat of paint and carpets are a bit worn, but sort of adds to the charm of the place. The breakfast is delicious, bacon lovers, this is for you, Danish bacon is one of the best things about Denmark. MOST important, the staff is wonderful, service oriented, know a great deal about the area and are not afraid to help out with the smallest of details or questions. Right across the street from Tivoli Gardens and a 5 minute walk from "the Stretch", main shopping and eating area as well as next to the main train station. I would stay again and highly recommend.
My boyfirend and I had a great stay at this hotel for three nights.
Extremely convenient location. Across form Tivoli and the train station. Very comfortable ammenities. Delicious breakfast. Helpful and pleasant staff. Nice price from tourist bureau across the street.
Pretty disappointing and a cheap makeover
Staff were quite friendly but a number of problems 1) Despite the fact that I booked a double room, because they thought I was only one person they tried to stick me in a single room when I arrived. As there were two of us the porter put us in one of the suites for the night. It was quite a pleasant room with a seperate living area but the glass shower curtain leaked water all over the floor and the towels looked liked they were about three years old. the bathroom in general was quite cheaply finished and not worth the c.6500kr rack rate per night.
2) the next morning they called to say we had to move. I was first put into a twin room and when I complained that my girlfriend and I asked for a double they then moved us again to the room next door which was a double. The airconditioning did not work, the door was falling off the mini bar and the bathroom had the same dodgy shower and cheap towels.
3) The breakfast buffet was taken away literally at 10.30 on the dot leaving very little food for anyone who arrived just before then.
4) they also charged us 250kr for a cappucino on top of the breakfast charge. Very mean I have to say but this was removed when I complained about its mean spiritedness 5) When the bill arrived I had been overcharged on my room rate by 400kr despite the fact that I had been given a fixed rate when I booked on the internet.
6) The library Bar is overrated in my view and lacked any real atmosphere with very uncomfortable seating.
7) there is no pool or leisure facilities to speak of.
Conclusion- This is not a luxury hotel in my view and while the staff were friendly enough it looks quite rough around the edges despite a facelift in 2000. Location is handy beside the train station but this can be very noisy if you have to keep the windows open. Copenhagen has some far better hotels to offer than this.

7.30/17*C Before I start can I just say: I am so glad I am nowhere near that tube strike for once. It looks worse than the last. And my thoughts were with all you guys in London today. Ok, now to the main event: I got back to the hotel room at about 23.00 last night and three of the girls who I was sharing with were there as well. I was so tired that I went straight to sleep. I was only woken up briefly when the other two girls got in and when I moved and the metal of the ...
We are home again, and the head has cleared slightly in order to think about our northern European journey. And about what a fantastic trip it was.
In 82 days we travelled over 12,000 road kilometres in 7 countries.
There were 7 languages, 5 currencies, 4 different cars and 46 accommodation places, so the it was not only the landscape that was constantly changing.
... on my way there and arriving parched and very sweaty (not the greatest first impression), all ended better than well. The meal itself was spectacular and used ingredients from the garden that they keep out front. This easily made it into my top 5 meals of all time. The 7 course tasting menu began at 7:30PM and lasted until 12:30AM. As good as the food was, it really was the people that I met that made the meal and experience memorable. In Copenhagen, ...
... a slower rider was intuitive, and I see how the paths are wide enough to allow for all levels to ride simultaneously. In addition, there are lights specifically for bicycles at all major intersections. This makes me laugh when I think about the one bike light Denver has to offer, along the one protected bike lane we have managed to construct. I look forward to learning more about the bicycle infrastructure here in the coming weeks. ...
