First Hotel Kong Frederik

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Staff was very friendly and helpful at all times. The restaurant at the lobby was excellent and I recommend the breakfast buffet. It was great!

Perfect location to walk to all the major sites and areas. Room was well appointed, larger than expected, open with high ceilings and three big windows all facing the courtyard - 3rd floor. Room was hot since one of the radiators was stuck on high, so opened the windows but the noise from the courtyard was unbearable - conversations, load music all echoed tremendously within the sealed courtyard area. One bathroom sink was clogged, shower glass had no seal (water all over the floor), and no outlet in the bathroom for a straightener or curling iron. Staff said they'd fix the radiator, unclog the sink, but it never happened. Would stay somewhere else next time in Copenhagen.

We arrived in the morning on an early flight from Bergen, Norway. The hotel was quite full, so there wasn't a room, but we were able to store our luggage. (and get in an hour early). It's an old building, but the public areas and rooms are cozy and spacious. It's the first hotel in two weeks that had washcloths in the bathrooms! Also extra pillows in the cabinet and nice bath products. Not sure about breakfast, or even if it's included, as we left at 530 AM just when all the local drunk party people were heading home after the bars closed.

The room was small. No AC and it just felt poor for the price. But this is europe. Nordic areas are always like this.

While the hotel was nice, convenient, clean, etc., our experience was disastrous. When we went for dinner (5:30 to 9 pm), our room was robbed of all electronic equipment, camera, jewelry, souvenirs - everything of value except the dirty clothes. In the future I would recommend that you put out the "Do Not Disturb" sign and leave the television on. The staff was very helpful after the incident but there was little security to prevent the occurrence, which the staff admitted was obsolete.

Very comfortable room, pleasant helpful staff, noisy wedding party early hours, breakfast buffet very expensive, quoted price from front desk, $20, turned into $31 when taxes were added. I definately recommend this hotel.

Great location just steps from Tivoli and the Ratusha. Shopping area around! Very friendly staff!

This hotel was ideal for our weekend in Copenhagen. Very clean and nearby everything we wanted to see. They were able to accommodate our early arrival after an all night flight, something many hotels would not do. The only "glitch" was at checkout when we were charged for the stay even though we had pre-paid for the room. This eventually got partially resolved although we are still disputing part of the charges. I will make sure I understand all the charges and arrangements for pre-payment in the future, ideally at check-in, but definitely before checking out, to avoid recurrence of this type of problem.

The hotel is right across from a after hours bar that opens after the bars close, we thought it started getting noisy at about 11 pm. But we heard the bass from the music and the drunks all night and morning long. The first night we had the window open as we didn't know about what was to happen later. But we had flown in from the us and were exhausted but the only way to get air in the room is to open the window, then you hear the bar and the workers the next morning. The next day we went to the desk and a nice woman offered to move us, but then her collegue checked and apparently the only other room available was outside a generator. Which would be worse. We stayed in the same room, and closed the windows at 11:00 could hear it through the closed windows. We paid a lot of money and did not sleep. Would not recommend to anyone.

Hotel was right across the street from Tivoli and within two blocks of the main shopping street. Walking distance to the train and all major sights.

The hotel was very centrally located. It provided a very decent breakfast. The biggest drawback was the street noise. Unfortunately part of my stay was during a weekend(with a street facing room)and the noise from the partying crowds of young people, the is a club across the street, kept me awake all night. A travelling companion who had a room facing the courtyard did not fare much better. They also experienced alot of noise from other hotel customers loudly partying in the courtyard.
