Rooms are VERY small

The first double room I was shown was actually a single room, one single bed, one pillow, bed up against the wall. Tiny tiny tiny. Considering my friend and I were staying there together we had to pay more for an ACTUAL double room. This was better but the mattresses were thin as paper and the shower essentially dribbled on you; absolutely no water pressure. Location was good for the Christmas markets but it's essentially the red light district, surrounded by strip clubs. Value for money? I'd probably say no.

Great location, but the rooms were pretty dingy.

The redeeming factors were the location and friendly staff. However, the hotel itself had minimal amenities and the rooms were quite small with dirty bathrooms. For the price of it, it was well worth the stay but I don't think I would visit this hotel again.

Comfortable

Excellent hotel for short stays in Copenhagen. Only a couple of minutes walk from Central station and the fast train to Kastrup airport. Breakfast with all essentials. Room very quiet and comfortable but the heating was not adjusted to cold aututumn nights. At outchecking I got my boarding card outprinted. Nice.

Good location...NO PARKING

The staff was very helpful and pleasant. Rooms are very small but had everything we needed (except a hairdryer). Expect to pay for everything including coffee. Parking is a big issue. When booking it said parking was available, well it is not. You park on the street and you pay dearly for it. Everywhere in Denmark you pay to park your car. It cost about $50 dollars a day/night to park your car. Don't rent a car unless you are exploring the country side, it will cost you a fortune. Transit is great and easy to figure out.

Excellent conference location

The economy room was too small so I upgraded to a standard room which met our needs and standards. It was excellently located, had good breakfast and the price was very suitable for our plan. The staff was very cooperative and service minded.

In the heart of Copenhagen

This hotel is only two blocks from the train station which meant it only cost $7.50 to go to the airport fir two people. Walking distance to the Town Square where you catch the hop on/hop off bus and Tivoli Gardens. Coffee is complimentary. Breakfast is expensive but worth it because of the coffee. I would definitely stay here again!!

Train station neighborhood

We went to museums each of the days we were there. The city was hosting the Tae Kwon Do Worlds, so we got to see the participants in the hotel throughout the day. I was using the internet in the lobby when someone sat their first-place trophy beside me. It was nice to see how their trip had turned out.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The front desk staff were great with restaurant ideas. Walk to the end of the block, opposite direction of the Europa hotel, then left or right to find many possibilities.
