Profile: Copenhagen City Centre

Profile: Copenhagen City Centre

Copenhagen City Centre is home to Copenhagen’s most historic neighborhoods, a place of narrow streets, cosmopolitan boutiques, boats drifting down picturesque canals, and 1st-class restaurants dishing up decadent smørrebrød sandwiches. SMK—The National Gallery of Denmark is Denmark’s largest art museum, with an impressive Matisse collection. Stop by bustling Torvehallerne market, a local favorite, to pick up rare teas and Danish delicacies.

See the city by hopping on one of the blue Netto-Boats, which offer multi-lingual tours and cruises down the Børsgraven. The tours take in many of Copenhagen’s most noteworthy sites, including the Little Mermaid statue and Amalienborg Palace.

    I was bitten by something and had rashes. Didn t notice anything during the night there. The bed was not very clean. This place is not for me. But; the location is perfect.

    Room (private) was clean and bed comfortable. Nice bar, coffee, ambience and staff. However, tip for if you choose a private room, ask for one at the back of the hotel if they have. Almost impossible to sleep if youre planning on an early night since rhe bar downstairs closes at midnight but the party moves across the road (daily) and people make a lot of noise until early hours. Then trucks (rybbish collection i guess) drive past early in the morning. Also avoid anywhere near the front door. Hence the 3 star rating, just couldnt get much sleep!

    Perfect For Short Stay

    The hostel in located in central Copenhagen just a short walk from the Main Square and numerous metro stops. The staff were friendly and the bar attached to it is reasonably priced and open late. The twin room itself was small and the top bunk wasn't the easiest to get up to but for the price of accommodation in Copenhagen it's hard to fault this place at value for money, would be happy to stay here again.

    The shared showers were not very clean. There was no toilet paper in the room, so I had to ask for it at the reception.

  • 4.0.Fair

    the property itself was fine, and the location was too. what I did not like was the hotel staff not being fully aware of their duties, and them telling me I had to check out early when in fact I had already paid my entire stay in advance. then they just switched my rooms without informing me

    I'm not a hostel kind of person but i got positively surprised by this place. Tiny room with a private bathroom. Everything around was so close that makes it the perfect choice to visit the city with no needs of public transportation at all.

    this might be the best hostel in cph

    good hostel as they have a desk that’s open 24 hours, and a bar in the lobby that’s open later than most places. rooms are clean. bathrooms and showers are tiny, but water is very hot. good value, amazing location.

    Very fun hostel, in a great location. Not a place to stay if you need a quiet night's sleep though. Also laundry facilities were a bit lacking, and a bit pricey.
