    Very good

    We only stayed 1 night so it is hard to make a good reference about the hotel. The hotel is located close to the central station which was ideal for us.

    Good

    Staying in the hotel was definitely pleasant as the staff was pretty fiendly and the location was comforatble.

    as we have ordered and bought the City Cards for the family it was absolutely unclear from the bill the cost of the cards. I am still struggling with the price amount...

    Very good

    The hotel is near Central station so trevell around is easy. Also you ca walk to the city centre and Tivoli park. Not so large room but clear. Good breakfast. Many pubs around. Good service.

    The streat near the hotel Istedgade - is very intersting place (many different people including drug dillers and prostitutes), so if you are too sensitive to surroundigs it's probably not the best place to stay, if you do not care about it - then probably that would be the best choise.

    Exclusive

    The hotel staff were superb. They were pleasant, professional and always greeted clients with a smile. (At least the person who checked us in and out) The breakfast could have fed an army with enormous range of choices and all included in the price of the room. We were staying for a long time so we were upgraded to a 5th floor room which is their luxury floor. The room was spacious, included everything that one might need and even had free on demand movies although the selection was limited. It is a very central hotel apparently in hotel row because there was hotel after hotel on the surrounding streets. A great hotel for short or long stay.

    The only thing I can think of to criticize would be that the bed was just a tad soft. Many people might like that though but I like very firm beds. I'm sure if I asked, they could have put something under the mattress to make it firmer but I didn't ask. It didn't spoil my enjoyment of the room at all. I would definitely return to the Absalon City Hotel when next in Copenhagen.

    The receptionist was very helpfull and friendly. Location is good

    Breakfast was a bit lame, and the hotel is in the "red light"area of Kopenhagen, not that this mean much but it came as a supprise to look out of the window to see a few lonely "ladies of the night"standing around and a few people doing god knows what drugs. I fairness there are a few hotels around and even the down and outs seem very well behaved. I would stay again but not as my first choice.

    Central location, 4 minute walk to the train station, decent value for the money.

    Beware of various types of individuals on the streets

    Friendly, knowledgable staff. Cleaniliness of room/bathroom. Good selection at breakfast. Good quality food. Was good location for the city centre.

    Decor really needs updating, threadbare carpets, furniture in rooms etc. Rooms compact. Was stingy with in -room beverages, teabags, coffee etc. No milk! Was surprised to find the hotel in the middle of the red light district!
