Unexciting, but clean and quiet (I had a room facing the backyard). The breakfast was not worth paying extra for, so I'd skip that next time. Front desk was friendly and positive, and all in all it was good. Nothing spectacular, but nothing bad either.

We spend three nights here, perfect location less than five minutes walk from central station right in the heart of Copenhagen. Rooms were clean and of a good size, cleaned daily to a high standard. Reception staff were very helpful and pleasant and all spoke excellent English. We did not have breakfast so cannot comment on that but the whole...

I booked this hotel through Booking.com. I chose it on the basis it was cheap, and fairly central. One thing that the Hotel’s site or Booking.com doesn’t tell you, however, is that there is a strip club next door and another across the road. Fortunately, our room was at the back, so we weren’t bothered by any noise from the...

I'd read some very mixed reviews for this hotel but decided to go ahead and book it due to the great location and price, and was very pleasantly surprised! The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was a good size and clean, and the bed was very comfy. The location of the hotel is a couple minutes walk from...

Affordable, clean and well located, these are at least three good reasons to stay at First Hotel Excelsior. Located within walking distance of the Central Train Station, Tivoli Park, many restaurants and a very good Information Center, this hotel provides small comfortable, clean and well furnished rooms. The reception people are very friendly and cooperative. The breakfast buffet offers a...

The hotel is located near the main train station in downtown Copenhagen. Its close to Tivoli and many other attractions.Its on a street with two strip clubs that blast loud music into the street till 2 AM. If you stay there, ask for a room on the rear court yard. The staff are friendly and helpful. Its a very basic...

Easy to find the hotel from the central station. I appreciated having individual shampoo, hair conditioner, and body wash instead of a "one-size fits all" hair and body wash. This hotel doesn't have a gym--my mistake in looking at a few options--but I was still disappointed that the hotel doesn't have an arrangement with a nearby gym.

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
