Historical Traveler Reviews Savoy Hotel Copenhagen
3*** - not by European standards!
The hotel is an historic well-maintained city house centrally located close to all sites.
The first impression when entering the dapper lobby, however, should not belie the fact that Savoy is not a 3*** Hotel when comparing it to equivalent accommodations throughout various European metropolis.
Room: comfortable bed and clean linen. Stained carpet and plenty of mildew in the bathroom. All in all, a place where you want to wear your flip-flops when leaving the bed.
Building: long corridors lined with identical cabin doors reminding the beholder of a ship's body.
Restaurant: simple and pragmatic continental breakfast in a basement vault which could be turned into a neat romantic restaurant simply by covering tables with white tablecloths and a candle.
Staff: good experience with day staff. The night concierge will not get up from his chair to hand you your key card.
Conclusion: unmotivated managment, not capable of running a potential 3*** Hotel by European standards.
Not bad but would try another location before returning here.
We spent some days there and would like to point out that it is a quite good hotel comparing to some same class hotels in other big cities we were in.
We can say that the Savoy hotel is :
* A well situated hotel, about 500m from the main station and 10min from the town center.
* The staff was very friendly and helpfull
* Room was small,a little noisy sometimes depending on the other side rooms'neighbours, but confortable and well heated.
* Breakfast was ok (normal buffet)
* There is a locked luggage room where you can leave your bags.
Conclusion : people that wrote bad reviews about this hotel had certainly bad luck because we thought it was above average with a good price comparing to hotels in London for exemple.
We would definitly recommand it.
Small, but cosy
Well, I stayed in Copenhagen one week, one week in Savoy Hotel, and I have to say that the hotel is okay for staying there. When I'm visiting a town I'm out all day, and not in room. The room was small. But for a ingle room the size was okay. The hotel is situated very close to the city centre and the main station. And even the musical theatre is just next to the hotel. The only thing that wasn't so nice was the bathroom, because the shower was kind of small and after having a shower the whole bathroom was full of water. The breakfast was good aswell, and so the staff and the lobby. If you want to visit Copenhagen, and you want a hotel close to the city and you don't mind about smaller rooms, because you're outside through the day, the Savoy Hotel can be recommended!
I booked to stay here 2 months in advance, paying up front through Expedia. When I arrived to check in at 9.30pm I was told that the hotel was fully booked and that they had booked me into an alternative hotel. After having travelled all day from Iceland this really was not a welcome complication to my trip. However, I think I was certainly better off at the new hotel, which was basic but at least cleaner than the Savoy sounds. Having booked so far in advance, as well as paying in advance, I would have expected to have been given the choice to book myself into an alternative hotel. Really bad service.
Not the greatest
My husband and I stayed here as an anniversary present from my parents but were downgraded by the agent who had double booked us! I would say from the 4* we were supposed to be staying in to be downgraded to what is supposed to be a 3* was very disappointing as I have stayed in better 3* accommodation. The hotel lobby is clean but with very minimal seating, the restaurant is very basic offering only continental breakfasts, however the food was very fresh. Our room was of a fair size and in need of a refurbishment and a good scrub. The working surfaces were clean but the skirting boards, picture rails and around the bath area were either covered in thick black dust or mould! The rooms overlook a courtyard and we were rudely awoken at 6am every morning to the bar staff (although we never found a bar!) wheeling trolleys containing glasses across the yard!! The luggage room is down a steep flight of stairs (there is no lift, only for bedroom access) so don't travel with too much stuff!! The staff were very friendly though and if you're on a budget it is a fairly good hotel location wise for no more than 2 nights!
3 star? not by comparison
We stayed at the Savoy Hotel, Copenhagen this Easter weekend (2005) and i have to say, we knew we were getting a 3-star hotel and read reviews and descriptions on here and it didn't live up to them at all. Our room was small, shabby, bathroom was outdated and grubby, it had a smell of stale cigarettes in the room and corridors and looked underinvested and uncared for in the decor. I had two bites on me by morning - either mites or fleas - so we checked out straight away and went to The Square Hotel, Copenhagen - a much better location and even though it was also a 3-star, we both felt it was a 5-star in comparison. Lovely modern rooms and good pricing, much more for your money. My advice, don't sty at the Savoy until they clean up their act, literally.
Good value if you are on a budget
Small room, clean, good location, excellent value for Copenhagen. Typical small, single bed (especially if you are over 6 feet tall!). Breakfast was just fine, and staff very good and helpful. Easy to get to all the sights if you like to walk (I do). My rating is "above average" for reasonably priced / good value in a hotel. Would be below average if you want luxury.
We recently stayed at the Savoy following our Baltic Cruise. The room was quite a bit smaller than the room we had on the ship and the bathroom was even smaller yet. The shower was so small that I could not even turn around without becoming entangled in the shower curtain.
Still it was clean, most of the staff was friendly and helpful and the included breakfast pretty good. The major problem was the court yard. All rooms open on the courtyard and if you look at published pictures of the Savoy, people appear to be partying in the courtyard, perhaps having a cocktail. While we stayed there the only people partying in the courtyard was a group of drunk, apparently homeless people and that was at 4:30 in the morning. The 24 hour staff at the front desk did nothing and approximately 30 minutes later the people left.
Would I stay there again. Yes, but only for the location and given an alternative I would try somewhere else first.
My partner & I visited Copenhagen for 2 nights, on a budget, at the beginning of March '04. We easily found the hotel from the train station & were impressed by the clean & modern lobby. However, we weren't that impressed by the room! We stayed on the top floor in what appeared to be the attic. The room was pretty small & had a sloping roof so my 6ft partner could only stand up straight at one side. In a nutshell the room & bathroom were basic but clean - you get what you pay for. The breakfast though was excellent... the buffet of meats, cheeses, eggs, cereal, bread etc was more than sufficient to meet our needs & the catering staff were really friendly & helpful. The location was fine... about a 10min walk into town.

Taking advantage of living in Europe, we took a Baltic cruise to eliminate the cost of a trans-Atlantic flight while we could. The trip from Vienna to Copenhagen was just an hour and a half, with no time zone changes. And while a cruise, with its "smash and grab" itinerary is not the best for fully absorbing the culture of countries and cities, it …
... expanded to its current size in 1624. It hasn’t been used as a royal residence since 1710. The rooms are nice, but the best was the great hall on the top floor.
In the basement, the Danish Crown Jewels and Regalia were on display. This was probably why the alarm sounded. There were signs everywhere about not touching the glass. Most of the tourists were putting their cameras up to and on the glass.

On display in the various castle rooms are original paintings, tapestries and furniture from his reign.

... good news--she's reserved us some bikes and we are good to go! So we take off and walk about 5 minutes to get them.
We got a lesson in riding because come to find out, the bikes are electric meaning that once you start pedaling, a motor kicks in and helps you go faster. Oy Vay!! Not sure at first if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but we hop on and away we go.
Our tour guide, Ava, was very knowledgeable and took us all over the city. ...

On Tuesday afternoon, we all boarded the Regal Princess cruise ship for our Baltic cruise. Leslie and I booked a suite with a balcony. We were very pleased with our accommodations. ...
