    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Danmark Copenhagen

    You get what you pay for!

    from

    Have read lots of complaints about the Hotel Danmark, but I have to say that in the times I have stayed there it has always been "acceptable". The location is fantastic (although the clock at the Radhus does get on your nerves), breakfast good and the rooms whilst typically small are always clean. You can pay a lot more in Europe and get a lot less.

    Great Location but not up to scratch

    from

    My husband & I stayed at the Danmark Hotel this July. We were very happy with the location of the hotel as it is very central to everything but were very disappointed with the hotel fitout. There weather was hot & as the hotel did not have air conditioning so we had to have the window open. The noise at night was terrible & we consdiered ourselves lucky because we had been put in one of the "quieter" back rooms. The nearby cathedral bells chimed every 15 minutes until midnight & the traffic noise was considerable.

    The mattresses on the beds were very old & most of the springs were gone. The bathroom was miniscule in size - you could almost have a shower whilst sitting on the toilet! We had just got off a cruise & the bathroom in our ship cabin was easily twice the size of the bathroom at the Danmark. Sound insulation between rooms was poor & we could here our neighbours coming & going even though they were not particularly noisy. The service at reception was pleasant & helpful and the room was generally clean.

    I would not recommend staying at this hotel as I'm sure there are quieter options.

    Noise, No air, Unprofessional

    from

    I realize that hotels in Europe don't generally operate at the same levels that most american ones do - that's part of the charm. I can usually adjust and make the best of any situation but not this time.

    Evidently most hotels in Copenhagen don't have air conditioning. Okay -open the window right. Wrong! We had a choice - either suffocate in our hot room or crack open a window which lets in the most god awful street NOISE and FUMES. And the traffic doesn't slow down until very late - Where is everyone going?? In addition to this, we had this wonderful heat source in our room 24 hours a day. The bathroom tile floor was heated and stayed on all the time. You just couldn't get confortable here.

    Thats not all....We were to stay here for 3 nights. Each night we had strangers who evidently checked in and were issued our room. So off an on we'd have people with our room key walking right in -ooops!

    Then on each evening after midnight the front desk would call our room and say strange things like- "you weren't supposed to be in this room - do you have your key?" When I would bring these things to their attention in the morning they looked at me like I was crazy.

    From the minute we checked in, we began searching for a better hotel. We were able to book the last night in the Marriott Hotel which was wonderful. At least we were able to get at least one decent nights sleep while in Copenhagen. Anyway this is our story. I've never written or complained about anything before in my life but I felt compelled to do what I could to save the next unsuspecting traveller.

    Regards,

    Way overpriced for what you get, a complete disappointment

    from

    After reading the revies for this hotel I expected much much more. The hotel was a complete let down. Hotel positives: One free internet machine in the lobby, OK breakfast, great customer service, good location for site seeing. Hotel Negatives: NO AIRCONDITIONING, hotel located on extremly busy street so you can't even open the window for air! The beds are lumpy-they look like civil war beds at a museum except that the wood furniture looked like furniture from an outdated Motel 6. There was no hot water since all the guests apparently showered at the same time. My college dorm room had nicer decor. I heard all my neighbors coming and going from their rooms. The shower head is directly in the center of the bathroom and the drain is on the bathroom floor which means you stand in cold water while using the toilet or sink. The elevator is slow and will only hold one person with luggage. I heard many guests demanding to be moved from a room facing the street (superior rooms!) to one's facing the back courtyard (regular rooms), they could not take the noise from the street. Avoid this hotel. I've stayed at the Square hotel and it far exceeds this hotel even though the rooms are much smaller. (It also has A/C). Later I heard many people on my cruise praise the Marriot hotel.

    Great location

    from

    We were here in August 2004 for a weekend after having booked a last-minute offer on the internet. We were very pleasantly surprised at the extremely friendly reception. The room was small but nice and very clean. The bathroom had recently been renovated and was very clean. Breakfast was excellent, varied and could be eaten outside in the small courtyard. An additional bonus is the proximity to all "important" places in Copenhagen such as the Tivoli and the Stroget (main shopping district). You can leave your car in their underground parking place (against a fee) which is a real bonus and spend all your time walking or taking a bus - everything is so near by. Highly recommended!

    Simply Super

    from

    This hotel probably doesn't need another good review, but here it is anyway.

    Charming staff- extremely helpful-- we came down at 4:30 a.m. to catch an early flight and found our taxi had already been ordered for us-- all kinds of neat things like that happened.

    Our room was huge, and lovely-- we could see part of Tivoli from our window.

    Great breakfasts, perfect location-- Tivoli gardens was 5 minutes away and as wonderful as ever.

    Cannot wait to go back !

    First Rate Hotel

    from

    Spent two nights at the Hotel Danmark in late November 2004. The location of the hotel was excellent, within walking distance of the Central Station and just along the street from the Radhusplatz.

    Our room was small but clean and comfortable. The room was on the back of the hotel and was quiet.

    Food for the self service breakfast was plentiful, with a seemingly unlimited supply of cereals, meats, cheese, eggs and a variety of breads. The tea, coffee and beer prices, served in the bright reception area must be among the best value in Copenhagen.

    Finally the staff were helpful, effecient and spoke excellent English.

    Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!!!

    from

    What can I say, this hotel was brilliant, a real find. A brilliantly placed hotel for seeing all the sights, a few minutes walk from the main shopping area, across the road from Tivoli gardens, a few minutes walk to the harbour areas and easy to get to from Central station. It is on quite a busy road but the traffic didn't offer any problems. Opposite the National Museum. Great service, nice clean smallish rooms with tiles bathrooms, everything you could want for a city break. Lovely appetising breakfasts on an eat as much as you like buffet breakfast with cereal, continental meats, selection of breads, olives, fresh fruit, yogurts, juices tea and coffee.

    Staff friendly and helpful, good selection of local attraction leaflets available in lobby. All rooms have internet access and there is a computer for use for a small charge in reception.

    Couldn't recommend more.

    Brilliant hotel.

    PS Be prepared for Copenhagen - prices similar to London (3.20 for a coffee in most cafes).

    Hotel is OK, but overpriced for what you get

    from

    Stayed in this hotel for two nights in mid-June 2004. The location is great. The hotel OK, but you pay too much (1200DK per night in my case) for what you get. The rooms and bathrooms are small but workable. The staff was friendly and helpful. On teh down side, the hotel was quite noisy. Every day either housekeeping and/or in-hotel construction activities would wake us up too early. Moved to Hotel Maritime a mile or two away and got a similarly small room with bathroom for half the price. The Tourist Office located near the central train station booked the room for us at the Maritime Hotel and seems to hold the keys to some good room deals.

    Hotel Danmark-Great Location and Value

    from

    We stayed at the Hotel Danmark for 6 nights in May 2003. The Hotel is rated ***, but because of the great central location and the wonderful buffet breakfast, I would rate it higher. The rooms are clean and comfortable--not flashy, but nice. The bathroom and shower was small but also adequate. The staff was helpful with tourist info. and quite friendly. I would definately recommend this hotel.

    Today is our last day in Prague we fly out this afternoon to Copenhagen. So up early to pack, store our bags & head up Petrin Hill. What a walk, but worth the sights once up, just needed a breather 1/2 way up in the form of a great Cappuccino, best I have had in Prague. Good coffee, great views, gentle breeze & singing birds what more could …

    ... no problem? What a waste of $20.

    We had several things we wanted to see in Copenhagen, all free of charge; the opera house, The Royal Library and Nyhaven, a street by the harbor.

    The opera house reportedly looks like the grille of a 1955 Buick and it actually does resemble the grille of a car.

    The Royal Library consists of the library and a newer building called The Black Diamond. It is in the Black ...

    ... sometimes because it was arranged by topic (like art or music or people) rather than by country. After lunch (we had knockwurst & sauerkraut & fries), I worked on this blog for a while. We went to dinner in the dining room and then to the production show, “What a Swell Party”. It was really a pretty good show – we enjoyed both the music and the dancing. It was still early, so after the show we decided to go to the Explorer’s ...

    ... city, the third largest of Sweden, however you get bored very quickly. We walked around the gardens of the ugliest castle I have ever seen (we joked that the moat was unnecessary, because no one would be trying to get in). Then we walked to the northern part of the island to see the Twisting Torso, a residential building famous for its architecture. It is very close to the sea, so from there we sat by the water and then continued to walk along the coast. The sand ...

    ... Danish paintings and some of the finest (French) impressionists (Gauguin, Monet, Manet, Pissaro and more - just saying...). Plus, a great palm house to sit in after a long walk. It's almost 3.30 by the time I'm done, so I opt for the RADHUSPLADSEN and the RADHUS. Only on the place in front of the city hall there is a familiar Inka band - and the city hall closes at 4 instead of 5. So that has to wait. Since I have almost an ...
