Copenhagen Crown Hotel
Travel Blogs from Copenhagen
4th Checked out at midday and took the train over to Copenhagen. Awful weather when we got there - raining and bitterly cold (for summer) and such wind! Took forever in getting help to find our hotel, which was 10 min walk down the street from the station. Checked in and found it very substandard for the price we were paying. Tim was pretty angry …
... the road and exited the zoo and court to the train to Copenhagen and mum and I bought lunch we met the boys at our hotel. Jack fell asleep, mum went shopping down Stroget and dad relaxed doing whatever. OMG - the man who laughed like a hyenna, made animal noises and told us stories in Danish - he did not seem to care we could not understand - we heard and saw him everywhere. Steps 20,336. LOL polar bears .
... is that they're willing to smile at you and engage. Relearning to relax how you look at people is always tricky, but you get use to it. It was worse going from Russia to TUSA.
So I ate my flinched dinner from Wurzburg with a bag of chips (yes salami, cheese and chips on a sangga is good) and settled in for a quiet night. That ended when I met a tattooist couple in my room, noisy american & his Chez wife, but I've now got ...
... Our cabin reminded me of the cabin I had on the Alaska cruise- 4 bunk beds (the top ones able to close up), a window, and a tiny bathroom. It was clean and simple. This room also had a small luggage storage place and a little desk.
We took the advice of the tour guide who recommended that we check out the restaurants and get reservations first thing so that we were able to get a good time. In general, the menus are very limited. The steakhouse ...
... starting to come out and the beds of spring flowers are in full bloom. We found the statue of Hans Christian Andersen and really enjoyed our walk through these Royal Gardens.
The Danish Royal Jewels are housed in the castle but we decided to get back there early tomorrow to view them. At 11.30 every day, the Palace Guards march from their barracks attached to the castle, through the streets to the Amalienborg Palace to change ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Copenhagen Crown Hotel
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.
I travel Europe on city breaks extensively and all I want for a hotel is something:
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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.
