Staff was extremely nice. Location is close to all needed transportation. Great cafes within walking distance

Extremely noisy! Don't stay here if you want to sleep.

The hotel is centrally located in Copenhagen, but that also means that the noise level is greater than normal. There was an Australian bar ear by which was opened most of the night - all nights, and the clients were very noisy as they were standing on the street to smoke and discuss. The rooms are very small, but functional. The beds were way to soft for my liking - almost like hammocks.

Small but comfortable room. Polite and helpful staff, good quality breakfast buffet

I wonder if European hotels are like this. Room is very small and limited parking place. No street parking place is available at night. It took me an hour to find a parking place somewhere in a quite distance.

We had a wonderful experience at this hotel. The staff was really great with giving advice and showing us how to get around town. We had a great time. It was a small room but very clean.

We don't expect a lot from European hotels - generally they are small and we are only in the room just to sleep. But the room was extremely small. There was barely any room to move and the bathroom had no privacy. The one good thing was the staff. In fact one of them suggested a great restaurant that was close by. As for the location, it was in a great location - we were pretty much in the center (near everything). And the good thing with Copenhagen is that everything is in walking distance.

Tiny, tiny room. Good location. Copenhagen has had unusually warm summer days (global warming?) lately which means the room is unbearably hot without A/C. Our room had a courtyard view, but when we opened the windows to let in fresh air, all the smoke from the european smokers sitting in the courtyard was drawn into our room. So it was hot and smelly. I wouldn't go back.

Great location, good food, breakfast was exquisite. Over all great experience I sure will recommend.

outstanding service, room was well-lit, with fresh smell and impeccably clean. bathroom was inviting, with good water pressure and plenty of hot water. reliable free Wi-Fi, very comfortable bed.

The hotel is located within walking distance to some of the major attractions like Tivoli, Central Train Station, and the shopping streets, which is the one major positive. Otherwise, the hotel tries to present an image of something far more hip than it really is. The "double" room barely fit 2 people. The furnishings were Ikea basic, so not very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was expensive and the food not very good. The same place also served dinner and it cost me $40 for a bowl of pasta and a diet coke. The towels and linens were worse for the wear and the room and bathroom floors felt like they had 20 years of crud on them. There is a pub right next door that gets quite rowdy and loud until late in the night, and you can hear it through the windows that face that side of the street. The hotel is okay, but it needs some serious TLC and updates.

there are some issues with this hotel. The location is excellent as it is within walking distance of many major attractions. Some reviewers commented on how small the rooms are. They're not Tokyo or New York small; they're average for European cities. The bathroom is nicely appointed with Hansgrohe fixtures; the bedding is fine. The breakfast buffet is nice but pricey at roughly $28 per person (although there are not many reasonable options nearby). The hotel could use some sprucing up; it's showing some signs of wear and tear, and the fact that we had rats in the walls and ceiling made for an interesting (more amusing than anything) stay (although none ever came into the room and there were no signs of them.) I think for the price better places are available.

This hotel in any other city would be considered average. Very small rooms. Overpriced breakfast. No service. Welcome to expensive Copenhagen. I would stay here again!

Club music thumping away constantly in lobby bar and outside patio area made this hotel not desirable. You can hear the pounding on the 4th floor of the hotel. At least it stops around midnight. then the town hall chimes wake you at 8 a.m. Beds are very uncomfortable and rooms are tiny.

ROOM IS VERY SMALL ACCORDING TO AMERICAN STANDARDS ,about 100 square feet. JUST BARELY ABLE TO WALK AROUND THE ROOM AFTER PUTTING DOWN A 25 INCH BAG. However, very good location just behind the City Hall and walking distance to all the sightseeing location in the city center. Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful and great included buffet breakfast.

My biggest concern in any hotel is the smell of the room and the bathroom. This hotel won hands-down. It was clean, fresh-smelling, and the shower had very hot water to invigorate my body after 20 hours of traveling. Not a great fan of black-tiled bathrooms, but everything else was first-rate!

This was a great hotel. I was in town for the Copenhagen marathon with three friends (30-40 years old). It was in a great location near the center of the city. The rooms were perfect for what we needed, clean, comfortable. They are not huge (by US standards), but they are good sized and you aren't supposed to be spending that much time in your room in Copenhagen on vacation. There is a great cocktail bar in the lobby (Honeyryder Lounge), though the Icebar next door is now shuttered. The staff were professional and direct, helping out with any issues that we had (there weren't many). I didn't partake in the breakfasts in the hotel, but there are great bakeries/coffee places nearby if you want something quick and light. There was a bit of noise (there is a clock town in the city center that rings until midnight, and if you are facing the street, there can be a little bit of noise from the bars on the street), but it was nothing that detracted from the hotel overall. If you are early to bed, you may want to keep that in mind. I'd definitely stay at First Hotel Twentyseven in the future.

simple, sufficient, friendly, convenient, modern decoration

The rooms were postage stamp sized and had absolutely no amenities, not even a box of Kleenex. The location was good, within walking distance to most things. The biggest disappointment was the size of the rooms for what we paid. The elevators left a lot to be desired. I did not ride and walked the stairs instead, but some of our party got stuck going up and down and not letting them out several times.

Rooms to small, and that the door to shower WC is a swing door so you actually can see thriugh... bad idea! Breakfeast not includet sucked. only the location in the city was the best part!
