3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a great hotel, located close to the central train station, and walking distance to most sites in Copenhagen. The hotel is designed beautifully with the classic furniture Denmark is know for.

Amazing staff and overall a friendly environment where you feel like home. hoistory all over the floors from furnish designers and artist.room is more the cute ,small space ,but very comfortable and filled with functional purpose. Bathroom is clean and has a good layout.did i mention the good drinking water .

Amazing friendly staff and extra royal treatment.really amazing layout and building.i like it that they are on top of environmental issues as well.love love it.can only rerecomend to experience part of culture and furniture design and art.

Love Hotel Alexandra! great location - walking distance to everything! great service/staff. The only minor inconvenience - lack of closet space - we stayed in a-la 60-ties room and there was no closet/wardrobe available to store clothes. However, regardless, will definitely stay in this hotel next time in Copenhagen

My stay was welcoming, cozy and comfortable. I enjoyed the Retro theme, and found the room clean and thoughtfully appointed in everyway. For every question that came to mind, there was an answer right before me. However brief my stay was, I would not hesitate to return again and I highly recommend this hotel to others that travel to Copenhagen.

If you are young and like hostels, this is the place for you! Choosing not to get your room cleaned will get you about 20 dollars off your restaurant bill next door per day but nothing matters if below your sink the pipe drips onto your floor and it smells of sewage and the complaint is not addressed immediately. Loving Danish mid-century modern is also key if you want to like this perfectly located hotel. My kids thought it was hip and eco-whatever. I thought it was uncomfortable and because I bought it on a package they would not give me another room when requested.

This is an historic hotel that has been renovated using vintage Danish furniture. It is very attractive. The bathroom in our room was tiny, but no different from several others we had in other cities. The hotel is classified "green" and offered us a $20 voucher to their attached restaurant if we would forego maid service for one day out of the three days and nights we were there. The restaurant is Asian cuisine and quite good. The staff members were all very friendly and helpful, from telling us where to get buses to different parts of the city to getting a cab at 4 a.m. for me to get to the airport. It is on a very, very busy street in Copenhagen, which means traffic noise at night and restaurant/bar noise on Friday night. But it is only a block from Tivoli Gardens and three blocks from the main train station.

We had a pleasant stay at Alexandra Hotel. After hopping on three separate flights, we took the metro to Nørreport and walked down Nørre Voldgade to the hotel. It wasn't ready for occupancy since we arrived so early, so we placed our luggage in the pile in the small downstairs room. Not ideal, but at least it was something. After wandering around for an hour (there are some cool shops nearby) we returned and the room still wasn't ready so we just hung out in the lobby for a while. Eventually a room did open up (not our original one apparently) and we got situated. Overall it was average size, fun decorations. There is no air conditioning in this hotel, as previously noted. We had a taxi reserved so we could hop on our cruise the next day, which was on time and reasonably priced for Copenhagen.

Conveniently located (short walk to the rail station and Tivoli Garden), yet far enough outside the dust of Copenhagen's ubiquitous construction. Small, but reasonably comfortable room. Excellent staff. Double windows, when both shut, effectively keep out the noise from the busy boulevard below. I'd worry about a stay in the summer, though, since the hotel has no A/C and the windows would need to be open. Otherwise, I'd recommend this hotel and stay there again myself.

Friendly, helpful front desk staff, and a great location a block up the street from Tivoli, but the room was really tiny, with a thin and saggy mattress. I had to use the chair for my suitcase, as there was no place else to put it. This was the last two nights of a 10-night trip, so we didn't want to fully unpack. The bathroom was compact but functional, and free wi-fi was great. But NO air conditioning. The street is noisy, so it is a choice between a little air and the street noise. There was a fan. . . .

we arrived to hear that there was a problem and they needed to move us to another "comparable" hotel. It was farther away but they paid for a cab. It was not a comparable hotel. However, the Savoy staff were fabulous, the breakfast wonderful and we told the Savoy we were happy to have been booted out of the Alexandra Hotel.

The room was very small, but adequate--much smaller than the hotel I stayed in Stockholm (comparable value). The hotel is in a great location and walking distance to lots of places. My only beef was that the hot water in the shower kept changing temps. The staff were nice and helpful.

After hours of researching accommodation in CPH, I was pretty sure I found the best one- and I was right! I am a frequent traveler, in my 20s, and sometimes I find the 5-star reviews here on TA a bit misleading; we once stayed at a hotel in New Orleans that was among the top 5 places to stay there, and we were more than a bit disappointed. I'd like to assure you that this 5-star rating is deserved. I noticed a lot of complaints in hotel reviews in Copenhagen that the: rooms were super small, hotel was extremely overpriced, locations were in a noisy part of town, staff was rude, etc. Since I knew I was going to be spending more money than usual on accommodation (this is Scandinavia!), I decided that if I was going to spend money, I wouldn't waste it on a cramped, noisy hotel. That isn't to say I didn't have a budget in mind-I paid around $500 for 4 nights for a single room (I was meeting up with friends), and it was worth every penny. Hotel Alexandra is a convenient 5-minute walk from Central Train Station, which was ideal for me since I was traveling by rail. When I got there, they gave me a city map, and when I asked them, they were more than happy to point out where the nearest grocery store was (Rema 1000), and where I could find non-touristy shopping. I walked into my room and instantly loved it. It wasn't overly luxurious, but the furnishings were new and clean, the bathroom wasn't minuscule, and the bed was just so cozy! I am very picky about hotels in general, and I just loved it here. My umbrella broke the first day I was there, and they happily let me use one of the many FREE and awesome umbrellas they had near the elevator. (Weather note: I went in late July, and it was cold: bring sweaters, jackets, pants, and closed toed shoes.) in the room, I could easily make coffee or tea anytime. The breakfast isn't free (and at 95Kr per person, almost $20, I highly recommend skipping it and picking up the awesome cinnamon buns at REMA 1000 for 6Kr each). The way I didn't go broke in Denmark (and Sweden) was that I bought all my food at grocery stores. I realize this isn't always possible or ideal, but that's the way you will save. Also, for families: many cultural activities are free for kids under 5, and make sure teenagers bring an ISIC card! My departing train was at 8:30am, and I left my room at 7:30am, and was checked out at 7:35. So easy! The front desk staff and housekeeping staff were all incredibly nice. LOCATION: Ideal. You don't need to take public transportation within the center, everything is walkable. 10 minutes walking from city center, 15 minutes from trendy southwest neighborhoods, and 5 minutes from train station and Tourist Office (which is truly incredible). There's a movie theater around the corner, for when it's too cold outside (movies are in English with Danish subtitles). On any kind of budget, I would return to this hotel. I absolutely adored CPH, and this hotel has a lot to do with that!

The hotel was absolutely beautiful. The room design and furniture was exquisite. The retro feel made it worth the while. Staff was very helpful in providing recommendations. Great location for sightseeing - close to Copenhagen H station, Tivoli, City Hall, and Stroget. Definitely return again.

Great location, clean. Very small room. Bed takes up most of the space, hard to even get out a suitcase. Staff were terrific. Wonderful location.

We were very pleased with the design, location, cleanliness and, especially, the helpful staff at the Alexandria Hotel. Our room was tastefully designed and we found a comfortable Danish chair in the room that we will try to buy back home. The location is near everything and bicycles are on offer, for a fee, to travel around town. The breakfast is well worth the cost. Highly recommended.

The hotel was easy to get to using the train into the city and walking. The staff for very helpful, the breakfast was great. They were genersous in allowing us to leave bags and sight see befor or departure. For a short vist in Copenhagen I would recommend this hotel.
