Recent guest reviews

Stayed with our 9 year old daughter for 3 nights. Couldn't have asked for more. A clean, modern, comfortable and spacious room with incredibly friendly service. Ideally situated for the beautiful harbour and sightseeing buses stop on the street outside. A great hotel.

Day1:Our toilet did not work. We spoke with the staff and they promise to have a look. They couldn´t fix the problem but the promised to take care of this the day after. So we had to use the toilet downstairs, by the sauna. One of us is pregnant and had to go 3-4 times every night. Day 2: when we came back that afternoon the toilet was not fixed. Now I asked for a new room. When we arrived to this room we found shoes och clothes there and the smell was not nice. We felt that the staff was not interested in giving service.

I spent a week at the Scandic Front in August 2017. I am a frequent visitor to Copenhagen, and I've stayed in many hotels in and around Nyhavn. This was my first stay at the Front. I booked last minute and they were the only hotel showing availability. Because of my experience, I had a good idea of what to expect from a hotel in DK, and this one offered no surprises. The beds were small in our twin room and the furnishings photograph well, but were functionally useless and in bad need of an upgrade. The bathroom was small - so small that the door couldn't open without hitting the toilet. I had to shimmy in sideways. As is typical in Scandinavian bathrooms, there was no water containment, no ventilation, and a strong mold smell. The AC was weak but acceptable. The wifi was great. Breakfast was mob scene - very poorly played out. And why is there a 6-foot portrait of Steve Buscemi in the lobby? There are better hotels right around the corner.

The hotel is very close to downtown, and close to a dynamic area on the sea with bars, concerts ... The service in the hotel was excellent and we rent a duplex room at the last floor that is perfect with a child (with an extra bed). The breakfast are one of the best we ever eat..

Modern, large and comfortable rooms Brilliant location walking distance to Nyhavn, waterfront and restaurants Breakfast was included and was a standout. Huge array of choices (including gluten free section) and food was delicious.

The staff was unfriendly and questioned me when i should have my breakfast if i was staying at the hotel probably based on my disabilities. Trusting the reception for booking my taxi was a bad choice as they placed me at wrong location and i had a tough time as of my disabilities and 20 minutes late to meeting. Whould be better to travel over the day and not stay there even if it was a nice hotel in my favorite area

The hotel is close to Nyhavn, which is a cozy area. However it takes 10-15 minutes to walk to the closest metro station. The staff was not friendly when we checked in, and the breakfast was really stressful and they didn't refill it often enough. I would stay at another hotel if I went to Copenhagen again.

Very disappointed in the quality of the Superior room booked at the Scandic Front hotel Broken sofa which was looked at by maintenance on the Friday we checked in and then maintenance never came back. When we asked at reception whether or not sofa would be repaired we were told unlikely as maintenance guy not working that weekend. Window left open on mezzanine floor which could not be closed without calling on the guy at reception to bring a ladder (on the Friday evening) 3 x lights not working- no bulbs in them so lights obviously broken. Bathroom in disrepair with toilet with a loose toilet seat and poorly maintained. Coffee making facilities in the room, milk not replenished after first use. On Sunday room not cleaned until after 2pm in the afternoon Breakfast OK but not enough tables for everyone who wanted breakfast. Staff however were very friendly and hotel is in a good location. Have given hotel an average score because of friendly staff and good location

This is the second time we stay at this hotel and not the last! Friendly staff not only to us but at breakfast a staff member helped a gentleman that really needed a extra hand and she did so with a smile! Talking about breakfast, it's good and the coffee brilliant thank you, we look forward to come back 🙏

Great rooms and pleasant, helpful staff. The location is good and even though I didn't stay in the section facing the water the view from the room was great. The room itself was spacious and nicely furnished. The bathroom could be better and because of other guests brought their children the breakfast was very noisy, these are the only cons.
