Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Skt. Petri Copenhagen
We booked a city break in Copenhagen before consulting TripAdvisor - and having read the less-than-favourable reviews of the 5* Hotel Skt. Petri, we were a little nervous.
However, upon arrival at the Skt. Petri (which is located about 5 minutes walk from the central shopping area, and about 2 minutes from the spectacular Round Tower), I was pleasantly surprised.
Check-in was a fast, efficient process and our room was superb. Cleanliness was second to none, the room was a little on the small side, but the spectacular view, wall to ceiling windows (complete with electrically operated blinds and balcony), and stylish design made up for it. The king-size bed was superbly comfortable, with feather pillows and a wonderfully snug mohair throw. Bathrobes and slippers were provided, and the room had a desk area with internet access (public areas have wireless internet access). The television had a wide range of channels, from BBC World to MTV, CNN and local channels. There was a mini-bar, snacks and a CD (which I purchased, it's excellent).
The bathroom was large, with a large walk-in shower (with room for a party!!!) and Molton Brown toiletries.
We ate in the hotel on the first evening - I had steak, my partner had lamb and we both agreed the meal was excellent. Portions were ample and prices were in line with other resturants in Copenhagen (which is generally expensive for eating and drinking). A pleasant surprise was that, whilst choosing from the menu, our waiter served us two glasses of Champagne 'on the house'. This was a really nice touch and made the evening a little more special.
The hotel's breakfast buffet is varied enough for all tastes, from raw fish through to Danish Bacon. It was delicious, and although breakfast is not included, we didn't mind paying a little more. We also had breakfast 'in bed' and our "light" breakfast was delivered on a table with linen napkins and huge portions.
Our experience of the staff in the hotel was very positive. They were helpful, polite, efficient and very friendly.
This hotel is very cool. I wouldn't recommend it for families, but if you're heading off on a city break and you appreciate stylish, trendy living, this hotel is for you.
Definitely a nice hotel: very modern , scandinavianly minimalistic but it has a charachter. The Hotel is very centrally located which makes all sites within a walkable distance. The brkf was great: huge glass windows which makes the whole place look very light, airy and excellent buffet food. I loved their tea selection. The rooms are speacy, beds are wonderful and decor is minimalistic but very cool. bathroom is on a modest side, but they use fantastic Molton Brown of London products and that by itself is a big plus. The service was not rushed but no major complains.
Overall if you get 1050DDK price, do not hink twice - go for it, it is the best deal for your money in Copenhagen.
An excellent hotel, great location in a old part of Copenhagen with shops restaurants and cafes within easy walking distance.
Some reviewers have questioned the 5* rating. This hotel does not have a swimming pool, gym, golf course, bath butler, chocolates on your pillow a beauty salon, shops or any of the other clutter of the bland upmarket hotel chains. However, it does have style. I guess you take your pick.
Loved the place - Elevator music!!!
Stayed 3 nights 17 - 19th Sept 04, thought v stylish. Our room was upgraded without asking, we have never slept in such a stunningly comfy bed, had a large balcony overlooking the round tower, interior was very funky and stylish. Def a place for young couples who like cool things. Bar expensive 1 x wine 1 x beer £14, DJ on Fri & Sat eves, plays lounge music, loved the bar for people watching. Great location 5/10 min walk to tivoli, 2 mins from the main shopping area. Staff look like from a fashion magazine. Some guests very cool others weird bunch of middle aged business men.
Email direct for good rates, we did got great rate
Don't be fooled by the 5* rating.
Before flying out, I rang a few days before arriving to ask for a room well away from any "busy" part of the hotel to ensure we'd get some piece and quiet. I was assured that they'd made a note of this. Well, guess what? On our first evening, the hotel was hosting a function. We could see the flashing disco lights from our bedroom window. The volume of the music played ensured getting a good night sleep was not going to be an option.
We asked to be moved and were told this was not possible. Of course it would not be possible to turn down the racket coming from the reception as that would spoil the fun of the party revellers. We ended up checking out the same night to the Marriott which I must say is a 5* hotel that I would recommend instead. I'd rate this hotel as a 3* one at most. For a start the beds are pull down which means there's a good foot between the head of the bed and wall, so if you're tall you get to choose between having your feet hang off the bed or your head. The choice is yours.
Assuming they'd try to make up for what happened, I thought I'd get a refund for the nights I'd already paid for as promised by the staff. It took the hotel staff the best part of a month to fax my travel agent the correct details to get a refund. I'm still waiting on my refund.
If you choose to stay at this hotel (it really should be called a conference centre),make sure there aren't any functions taking place during your stay or you'll end up the same way we did. If you consider yourself a discerning traveller, this hotel should not be on your list of choices.
A Little Mermaid? A Little Dusty More Like It..
While we did not find the hotel lobby and corridors to be dirty, our room was extremely dusty and on the small side. I would be interested to know exactly who gave this hotel a five star classification - it was extremely disappointing to arrive and find that it was not up to the standard of other five star hotel.
Please please please can someone let me know how on earth the lifts work?
And not to mention that in the hotel bar a large glass of wine and a beer came to the equivalant of £13.00!!!
Probably the best but very dirty
I waited at the check in desk for 5 minutes before any of the three check in staff decided to notice I was there. I actually had to tell them I was standing there with my luggage to check in. It did not get better. I walked down filthy corridors to get to the room. They had not been vacuumed apparently for days. Checking into the room I found that the bathroom floor was covered in hair. The housekeeping in this place has a problem. I was upgraded and moved room immediately. the corridors were still filthy with hair & crumbs on the carpet on another floor. I would not say that these small rooms are worth the price. All in all a dissatisfactory experience, although the staff were to their credit reasonably friendly and apologetic.
Style and chic at Skt Petri
An amazing hotel, that is swish and stylish. The rooms are large, airy and furnished with superb modern decor. Everything worked and appeared brand new! The meals in the restaurant may seem pricey, but you get huge helpings and are cooked to perfection. I would definitely stay here again.
Stylish central hotel in Cph at great rates
Very nice hotel in a quite and nice area in the centre of Copenhagen. Rooms with style, friendly staff and grat rates. We were a family of four travelling, and got a separate connected room for the kids for the half the discount price. This is a top pick!
New, clean, but not 5 stars
In looking for a place to stay in the center, Hotel Skt Petri popped up as a 5 star but only 1050 DKK/night. Room with very comfortable king bed, sofa and chair. Bath had twin sinks. TV, Internet connection (150 DKK), safe. Lobby is ultra modern. Breakfast was 130 DKK. Dinner was absurdly expensive, well presented, but not as tasty as it looked. Bar menu was acceptably priced. I cannot understand the Danish 5 star rating -- no fitness center, no swimming pool, not much of a business center, only one restaurant and bar. Good location, near train and metro and near shopping/sites. November 2003

... a painter (oils), another poet and short story writer (Niels Hav) and his concert pianist wife (Christina Bjorkoe). If you Google them you can see their work. In conversation, I asked them whether Danes pronounce Copenhagen with a long or short 'A'. The answer is neither. It is Copen - "and now let's swallow a golfball" sound! The happy memories I take from Copenhagen are all due to the generous hygge of Lynette and René! Thank you lovely people! And now it's off to ...
... everyone rich or poor should be able to have a garden. The city is full of bikes. Not too many cars as when you buy a car they pay %180 tax on them.. They are trying to reduce the pollution etc and it seems to be working. The roads are very bike friendly..they have a footpath, then a bike path, then parked cars then the road. Very well done really and the bikes don't seem to have any locks on them and they don't have those wickedly expensive mountain ...
... recepting people. We saw the ruins under the palace, and learned the stories of all the buildings that had stood there since the 1100s, and how they seemed to always burn down. We then went for a beer and an ice-cream the Stork Fountain Square near the palace and waited for the queen to be finished.
We went back to the Royal Reception Rooms, and went on a little tour with a guide ...

... the day time. I appreciate the theory of the neighborhood, but I felt a little oppressed by the atmosphere there.
On the other hand... we had a freaking blast eating up all the wild strawberries and Ninja Warrioring the playground equipment.
