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.

... for our food. The cook was really rude for no reason towards us and so he made us wait an hour for our food. Beth and I were still hungry so before coming back to our room we went to Aldi (which was right next to our hostel!) and brought some goodies.
So now we're going to go and have a shower before getting into bed. We're both absolutely knackered and want to be able to enjoy tomorrow so we better get some sleep. Night guys!
... 47s patrolling the main tower in the middle. We decided to walk around the outside, through the gardens and along the tree alleyways. We came across a statue of Hans Christian Anderson in the gardens before stumbling across a long pathway surrounded by trees either side, which resembled one of our wedding photos from Mt Tamborine. Naturally, we had to get a pic of it and we set the camera up and did some re-enacting. It was 18 months to the day we got married, so it ...
... make the climb further up in the spiral staircase in the open air until there is no where further to go, and appreciate the grand view.
After navigating my way back down the tower, explore Christanshavn a bit more before heading along the canal to the very modern Royal Library located right on the water. Grab a nice lounge chair, along with everyone else, and sit back and relax in the sun for a bit, taking in the view. Read for a while before ...
... do with the actual city. As we walked further afield we found a huge park with some kind of royal building in it, with canals and islands and swans and other such picturesque elements. Soon after that we stumbled across the Carlsberg Brewery, which we had completely forgotten was in Copenhagen. Actually saying we stumbled across it makes it sound like it's a little out-of-the-way-type place - it's more accurately a complex the size of a small suburb, made ...
Day 2 started with a tour by Bike Mike- a stout man with a whisper-sing-song voice dressed in neon green accents and a black felt pork pie hat. Playfully guiding the class through the city on his pastel pink bicycle, he showed us Copenhagen's many eclectic forms: historic squares, the gentrified meatpacking district, alternative living in Christiania... It was a really fun and adventurous way ...
