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

... to open up about their life and cycling opinions is challenging. Most people seemed confused by our cycling questions, the overall feeling we got was it was hard for them to reflect on cycling culture, as it was completely normal to them and had been this way their entire lives. Unfortunately my computer has crashed, so until I can find the time and an apple store, there will be no pictures... hopefully they will be coming ...

There are also so many great surprises that are really fun to find, like the polished rocks along the water strewn half hidden amongst the normal rough cut ones.
Along this same vein... I love how the municipality handled the unexpected popularity and use of the waterfront walkway. Instead of putting ...
... stand to benefit the most from them, and to build political and social structures that reinforce the status quo. I love the idea that the hullaballoo on gentrification (though yes, there is reason to have concerns and be careful to be mindful of existing populations in gentrifying neighborhoods) is a distraction from the much bigger issue of getting more resources into the growing pile of cities that are growing more stratified and more disenfranchised. Like Baltimore.
... highlight of the presentation was learning about "bike butlers" which are people job training that go around and straighten up bike racks and maintenance your bike if it needs it!
From there, we got lunch and went on a bridge focused tour with Henrik. The highlight of this was seeing a part of Copenhagen that was completely different from the rest. It didn't even feel like the same city. We saw what I believe is considered to be the "ghetto" which consisted of the red square ...
... All we wanted was a baguette with some salad and meat on it - they dun good !! It turned out one of the ladies had a first cousin married to an Australian and living in Brisbane. she even showed us a picture of the cousin getting her Australian citizenship - guess where - City Hall and Roz was able to recount her working years there. Small world !!
Back to the city and we went through to Copenhagen Central Station. Johnno, you would have loved it. From there ...
