AXEL Hotel Guldsmeden
Travel Blogs from Copenhagen
Ben: We woke up this morning and caught the early train from Berlin into Denmark. After having some drama's not being able to book our seats properly on the train it was great to finally arrive in the beautiful and friendly city of Copenhagen. My first impressions of Copenhagen were great! Everyone here seems so friendly, and helpful. A lot more so …
Admittedly, Copenhagen was never on my extensive list of places I want to travel to before I die. When I saw the seat sale I thought why not, I've never been to Scandinavia! So I had no real expectations when I got here, and when I first looked through my Lonely Planet Encounters guide, my heart was far from racing with excitement. But then as we …
It takes less than two hours to fly from Basel to Copenhagen but somehow the journey seemed to take the entire afternoon. I left work at midday and finished packing before we left the apartment. We bought some cold lunch at the grocery store on our way to the airport. Once we were through security I received a text message from Swiss. Once again, …
... practicum which was a pretty typical day. In the fifth grade we helped teach a lesson in Danish where they learned about England had had to draw maps of their own city. The maps featured such shops as a “bacon shop”, “bacon street”, and one even had a truck stop (no detail was left out). In our seventh grade we read with the students. In the 9th grade we saw the final presentations of an advertisement they were to produce on ...
I went to breakfast at a café today with my circus girl.
Danish cinnamon pastry! Finally!
Then it was off to discover Copenhagen!
I went to a place called Christiania first, somewhere the guy at the hostel recommended.
He told me it was a city within a city, that lived differently from the rest of Copenhagen.
He wasn't wrong!
(I stopped at a café on the way, because I was lost...and I got told I was in Copenhagen...gee thanks!)

Historical Traveler Reviews AXEL Hotel Guldsmeden Copenhagen
Let me first say that I am qualified to write this review as I have traveled around the globe and have stayed at hundreds of five star hotel properties. I found this hotel a true delight. The staff was extremely polite and courteous and very helpful. The facility is brand new and the room was delightful and packed with numerous special touches. I cannot begin to describe the numerous little touches that one never sees during their hotel experience. The breakfast was extensive and seating was abundant and the before dinner complimentary cocktail was just one more special touch. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and I truly enjoyed making many new friends with the wonderful hotel staff. I plan to return to Copenhagen this spring and can assure you I will be booking my entire stay at this facility.
Dieses wunderschöne Hotel hält alles, was es auf seiner Website verspricht. Es ist brandneu, im Ökostil gehalten, Atmosphäre ist entspannend, und nach einem langen Tag voller Besichtigungen in Kopenhagen kann man hier so richtig abschalten. Betten sind sehr bequem, Bettdecken daunenweich... Frühstück ist einfach superlecker - und alles biologisch! Personal ist nett, freundlich, hilfsbereit... Auch die Lage ist sehr praktisch - das Hotel ist in einer ruhigen Straße, und trotzdem scheint alles nur um die Ecke zu sein - Bahnhof, Tivoli, Geldautomat, Lebensmittelladen mit langen Öffnungszeiten... Dieses Hotel hat wirklich zu unserem wunderschönen Urlaub beigetragen.
Cet hôtel charmant offre vraiment tout ce qu'il promet, si vous allez voir leur site internet. Il est flambant neuf, la décoration est "bio", l'ambiance est très reposante, on peut vraiment souffler après une journée complète d'excursions autour de Copenhague. Les lits sont très confortables, les couettes sont très douces... Le petit déjeuner est succulent (et bio!). Le personnel est gentil, aimable, serviable... L'hôtel est bien situé, dans une rue calme, et pourtant, tout a l'air d'être à portée de main - la gare, Tivoli, les distributeurs d'argent, le 7-Eleven... Cet hôtel a vraiment contribué au succès de nos merveilleuses vacances.
This lovely hotel is everything it promises if you look at their website. It's brand new, made in organic style, atmosphere is relaxing, you can realy unwind after the whole day of sightseeing around Copenhagen. Beds are so comfy, duvee so fluffy... Breakfast is just yummy - and also organic! Personnel is nice, friendly, helpful... Location is also very convenient - it's in a quiet street, but at the same time everything seems to be just around the corner - train station, tivoli, atm, 7/11... This hotel really contirbuted to our lovely holiday.
Questo bell'hotel è davvero come lo si vede dal sito internet. E' nuovissimo, creato in stile organico, l'atmosfera è rilassante, ci si rilassa davvero dopo una giornata intera a visitare Copenhagen. I letti sono molto comodi, e il piumino così morbido...la colazione è squisita - e molto varia! Il personale è cordiale, gentile, efficiente... La posizione è anche molto comoda - si trova in una strada tranquilla, ma allo stesso tempo sembra che ci sia tutto dietro l'angolo - la stazione del treno, tivoli, atm, 7/11...Questo ha davvero contribuito a rendere la nostra vacanza molto piacevole.
This hotel is a short walk from the station in Copenhagen. No need for a taxi unless the uneven cobblestone footpaths pose a problem for the pedestrian. It is situated in a quiet side street and access to the hotel is by way of card which guarantees the guest a certain amount of privacy and security. The premises has been newly refurbished. The bedrooms are small containing four poster beds, wooden floorboards and persian rugs (decorated along a japanise/sea shore theme) There is a large open closet for hanging clothes. Linens are spotless on double beds which are slightly ajar from one another, each side containing its own downy duvet. The dining room is light and airy and a delicious organic breakfast is included in the price of the room. A complimentary drink of wine is offered on arrival, but no meals are served on the premises, except for breakfast which is served until 11 am. Tivolii Gardens is a very short distance away and it contains lots of wonderful restaurants. The Hard Rock Cafe is also walking distance. Overall, a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone contemplating a break in Copenhagen.
This was the third hotel on our week-long stay in Denmark. This was far and away the best, the Hotel is currently incomplete as they are still working on the spar/pool etc. The receptionists are always helpful, the bar downstairs feels more like a lounge, we invited some friends over and managed to drink there all night (this was also the cheapest place to drink I saw in Denmark). the breakfast was organic and particularly nice. The rooms, although not very big were well equiped (LCD on the wall and a DVD player and a nice faux suede couch), we had a four-poster bed which was very comfortable. The bathroom had a walk-in shower & granite sink.
This hotel company had a sophisticated, upscale website which did not appear snooty. The Axel property just underwent a renovation, & we thought it would be fresh & inviting. It exceeded our expectations in every category! Fabulous design & sensual appeal throughout hotel, including unique Tahitian themed furnishings. Staff very friendly, helpful & enthusiastic about the property. Rooms immaculate, beds very comfortable, but bathroom with carved stone sink & open shower was the best! Even the hotel-branded soaps were outstanding! Organic breakfast was incredible, especially home baked breads & vanilla yogurt with almonds & honey! One aspect of the location was a bit negative- lack of good restaurants in immediate area, but convenient to train station & Tivoli. I would recommend highly, & would return.
The former Triton has been remodeled and opened, probably a bit prematurely, as the Axel in May. When we were there in late June the hammers and saws were apparent everywhere and provided early AM wake up calls. The elevator was only working intermittently. The rooms are small even by European standards, but very comfortable and modern.
