The city centre location on a quiet road facing one of the harbour canals is the best thing this decent little hotel has going for it. It's a short walk to Copenhagen's most important historical sites, it's very handy for the canal tours and close to the city centre's bars, shops and restaurants.
The jazz theme will eventually start to look a bit dated but overall I like the light, modern touches the rooms have been given here. The muted tones work well and the quality of fabrics and materials used is solid. The standard rooms are undeniably on the small side - the bathrooms especially so - and it certainly has the feel of an older hotel, for instance in the scarcity of plug sockets. The superior rooms are generally lighter and more spacious.
Overall though these a pleasant rooms with space to work. There are flatscreen TVs and tea and coffee making kits.
The small bar and breakfast area aren't especially good places to linger in. Given the proximity of the city sights, bars and cafes I wouldn't let this put you off though.
Eating and drinking
Although the buffet breakfast is reasonably good with some fresh options including fruit and yoghurt, and there's also a small bar, on balance I'd advise heading out for refreshment.
There's bike hire on offer here and that's about it.
Don't expect service above and beyond expectations but I found the front desk friendly and efficient.
