Very central in the hip, slightly edgy Vestrbro neighbourhood, the only thing that lets the Mayfair down location-wise is the strip club very visibly advertising its services across the way.
The rooms are crisp, clean and modern. They strike a decent compromise between classic and contemporary and money has clearly been spent on fitting it out. Having said that, there is still a sllightly corporate feel to these plush surroundings and looking around I couldn't help feeling I liked the Bali/French colonial look inside the neighbouring Guldsmeden hotels that cluster nearby. The rooms are very well equipped (including desks and free WiFi), but the glaring omission (as with so many Copenhagen hotels) is the lack of air con. It's only really a problem in summer but if you have to open windows street noise can irritate.
The lobby and lounge area are plush and appealing.
Eating and drinking
The Mayfair does very well by endearing itself to guests through their stomachs. There's usually some kind of gratis snack on offer - from afternoon coffee and cake to a light evening meal included in the price. The breakfast is good, although the breakfast room itself is a bit small and can get very full.
This is a small hotel, so apart from free newspapers, there aren't many other facilities on offer.
The Clarion scores very well on its warm, welcoming service.
