Historical Traveler Reviews Copenhagen Crown Hotel
Just ok hotel.. fantastic price for copenhagen
Seeing as Denmark is a very expensive country I would stay at this hotel again just based on the pirce. It is relativly inexpensive compared to other hotels in the central area of Copenhagen.
This hotel is a decent place and there is nothing to fancy or over the top. We stayed there for 4 nights. The staff was helpful. Our room faced the main street so it could be noisy at night.
It just seems with this hotel that they cheaped out on things. In the limited amount and mismatched decor, the limited number of staff around, the internet is ridiculously expensive and is very slow.. and their printer they have for you to use dosent work, on a queen size bed there are 2 twin duvets instead of 1 queen duvet and no top sheet (which I happen to prefer but not everyone will), the lights in the hotel hallways are motion sensored, it just seems to have the feeling of penny pinching around there. Although that being said.. as I mentioned earlier, it is one of the cheapest hotels in the area and that goes hand in hand with the atmosphere.
It is a great location and has a cute little courtyard. There are some great cafes as you exit the building to the left. Tivoli and the train station as you exit the building are to the right by about 10 min walk.
Ideal moderate hotel centrally located
I travel Europe on city breaks extensively and all I want for a hotel is something:
- modern enough
- clean and organised
- averagely priced
- don't care about breakfast as not awake for it
- and the clincher of being centrally located.
This hotel is plain, simple and met all of the above for me visiting Copenhagen. It is a 7min walk from the Central Station so I'd recommend getting the train (very nice) from the airport instead of a taxi (15mins €30). But if you are coming in late you might want to get a taxi for convenience.
Unlike some European cities, the Central Station area is not a dodgy, questionable area.
This hotel is in walking distance of everything you would need in Copenhagen including Tivoli, all the night life, shopping and restaurants.
You never want to stay anywhere else? Oh yeah? You bet I do!
Well, what can I say? It's Ibis... Cleaning could have been better. Shower was dirty. Beds were more comfortable than in some hotels I have stayed. Staff all friendly, except for one. Check your invoice before you leave. The courtyard makes for noisy nights and avoid rooms near elevator and/or just under the breakfast room on the 5th floor.
We stayed twice in this hotel while we travelled to Stockholm.
We had a good stay. The hotel is well-located and parking is free in the evening/night (on the streets)
The breakfast is a good + to this hotel (you need to pay extra for this)
Excellent location and good standard hotel
Read previous comments and have to say I found the hotel to be clean, warm and very pleasant. If you are looking for somewhere to simply sleep whilst exploring the city then it is perfect. It is a 3 star hotel so obviously you have to have realistic expectations about what to expect. You get what you pay for! Have used the ibis chain for trips across europe and the hotels and rooms are always perfect. Have not been disappointed yet.
Hotel was close enough to walk to most attractions and the city centre. Staff were all very helpful and the room was warm, clean and had everything i needed for a weekend break.
The entrance to this hotel is through an alley way off Vestograde. The photos they show you on their website just shows the entrance hall which looks ok.. it does not show the rest of the building which in my opinion is very shabby. On our arrival there were workmen doing some repairs in reception and my first impression was that this "hotel" was not all I had read about it. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. We were staying on the third floor and we used the lift. The corridors are very narrow and dismal. When we got to our room I was very disappointed. The room was very plain and not what I was expecting ... the walls were all dirty and the floor covering was not very clean. It definitely needs to be replaced. The bathroom was ok... We stayed for three nights and the bedlinen wasn't changed once while we were there. This is our third city break in a matter of months and this is the first time that this has happened. The so called wardrobe really annoyed me as the rail was too close to the ground. There was no mirror in the room which was very annoying and you trying to dry your hair. The breakfast was very basic... bread, rolls, meat and no hot food. We paid €306 for the three nights which I felt was too expensive for what we got. I will return to Copenhagen but I will definitely not be staying at this hotel. How this got classed as a three star hotel is beyond me... It reminded me of a youth hostel... even the dining area which they tell you on their website "overlooks the city" looks out over some rooftops and thats all.
The only good thing about this hotel was its location .. it is near Tivoli Gardens (which is a must see) and the train station....
Average all over
My boyfriend and I stayed two nights here in May 2005. On first glance, the hotel appeared fine, the lobby clean and airy. On walking up to the second floor to our room, there seemed to be a funny smell in the hall - which we found worsened in our room. We worked out that the smell seemed to be a combination of smoke (non-smoking room) and damp from the shower with no exhaust fan. Other than that it was pretty average. The sheets and towels were clean, the bed was quite comfy - the floors need cleaning/replacing. As we only spent sleeping time in the hotel we didn't care - it wasn't noisy and it was mainly clean. The breakfast was average also, no hot foods, just danishes, cereals and ham/cheeses. Not worth the 65DKK. There is a restaurant up near the main train station called Hotel Astoria and they do a buffet breakfast for 60DKK which is much better. I loved Copenhagen, and as a base for exploring the city this hotel was fine. For those of you that like to be a bit adventurous, try catching the train up to Helsingor and a ferry across to Sweden!!
A good hotel
We spent three nights here. It's quite similiar to other Ibis hotels we've stayed at, and we thought it was very good. Comfortable room, good breakfast, quiet, and a good price - at least by our British standards. £150 or so for three of us for three nights B and B in a city centre is better than you can get almost anywhere in the Uk.
It's an easy walk to all the city centre sights, especially Tivoli.
Local restaurants are very local. A Chinese right next door, - ok but expensive and with slow service. A sort of Turkish canteen next to that is very good value in a city where all restaurant food is expensive - large portions of good quality food.
Copenhagen seems to be full of McDonalds and Burger King, perhaps because a Big Mac is 14Dkk (£1.40), and all other food starts at 60Dkk.
Good Value - clean and comfortable
The Crown is a relatively inexpensive hotel, and the decor in the corridors and rooms reflects this. If you can look beyond that, you will find a clean, comfortable hotel in a great location, with good beds, superb shower, and a more than adequate choice at breakfast, (usual breads, cheeses, meats and cereals) with all the food being very fresh and of good quality. Staff were friendly and helpful, and, although I wouldn't choose this hotel if you plan on staying in your room all day, as a great base for exploring Copenhagen, it's unbeatable. My wife and I would return without hesitation.
Good Location and Price; Hard chairs
This hotel is good as an economy hotel. The room is fairly sized and clean. We had a room overlooking a busy street but it was quiet with the windows closed. The people at the front desk treated us as well as many more expensive hotels. For the price, this is a good value. Even the breakfast buffet compared favorably with higher priced rooms. There were only two things I did not like about the room. The only place to sit, other than the bed, were too hard chairs. Very uncomfortable if you want to spend any time watching TV or reading a book. Secondly, the carpet in our room needed to be cleaned or replaced. I was uncomfortable walking on it barefooted.
The neighborhood is fine. While local restaurants did not appeal to us, there is a large choice, particularly asian. Only a short walk to Train Station, Tivoli, and main walking street. Also, only a short walk to less expensive neighborhood shopping.

Another beautiful day greeted us as we woke up in Denmark. We had planned to meet up with a Sandeman's free tour starting at 11 so planned to debark as early as possible- 10. We originally intended to catch the ship's shuttle ($18 each!) but meet the he Quebec couple on shore from dinner the other night and they convinced us we could walk it in 20 minutes. So off we went guided by a pirated ...
... see sculpture and paintings by Degas and the works of Gaugin, Picasso, Van Gogh, Manet, Monet and more sculpture by Rodin. The best gallery we've seen on our Euro jaunts.
Somewhere in amongst all that we got lunch out of a basement bakery - bread roll and a Danish of course and a cappachino.
We could have done more castles and museums over the last 2 days, but that was enough. Now we are planning tomorrow's drive out ...
... very innovatively-cooked veggies, while the last dish was lamb. The lamb used in this dish was organic and had lived on a Denmark beach, eating sea kelp which supposedly made the meat naturally salty. The highlight of my trip was my dinner at Amass Restaurant. I was able to score a cancellation and gain a seat at Table 153, a community table where I sat with 7 other random diners. Luckily, we were all extroverted foodies, and we enjoyed ...
... running parallel to the beach, were a number of wind turbines. A clever way of utilising space to generate power. The pursuit of a carbon free environment is very important to the Danes. As we neared Copenhagen the traffic began to build and the freeway became more congested, which was not helped by extensive road works being undertaken. We did a city orientation when we arrived around 6pm to get our bearings. Had a walk up the ...
... quite flat, the only hills occurring around bridges, and the infrastructure is phenomenal. There is a wide sidewalk for pedestrians, a step down to another wide area for bikes, a step down to street level for parked cars (on some streets) and then traffic. Most bike lanes are one way, so there is either another bike path on the other side of the streets or if the street is one way street, just the one way bike lane. Bikes ...
