Good location, reasonable price
We stayed at the Ibsens Hotel for a five night stay in May 2010. We paid about 930DKK for a double which seemed reasonable for Copenhagen prices for a double room. The room was small but not tiny. It had enough room for us and carry on baggage though there would be room for a full size suitcase as well. There's a double bed and wardrobe, a desk and chair, a small television and another little table. The room is decorated in red and gold shades and was clean and pleasant.
Our room faced the inner courtyard so we didn't get any traffic noise. However, I think the restaurant kitchen or staff area was in the courtyard because you could hear people out there talking later in the night and the sound did travel or echo up the courtyard walls. We did have the windows open which would make it more noticeable but it didn't go on for a long time or late which is why i think it was from people working in the Italian restaurant in the hotel.
The bathroom was small with the basics, but the shower was all part of the room, with a drain in the middle of the bathroom floor. There was a curtain to draw around you so the rest of the room and walls wouldn't get wet. There's a small shelf in the corner over the toilet to put your shampoo or you can put it on/in the sink. There was a bit of mold around one spot by the sink, I have to say but other than that it was spotless.
There is no air conditioning in the rooms that i could tell but the windows open. We were there in May and it was cool out so heat wasn't a problem but it might be in summer. The bed was a bit hard for our tastes but not too uncomfortable overall. It was covered with a white duvet and coloured "spread" and we found the duvet warm so we just used the spread.
Breakfast wasn't included and was a bit pricey (150 DKK per person). There's a bakery on the corner and there are a couple of restaurants in the area that serve breakfast and brunch though they don't open until about 9:30 or 10. (See Cafe Klimt and Bankerat for reviews. We ate a meal and some breakfasts at both).
The hotel hallways seem a bit worn and the carpets do need replacing. There is a small lift.
The restaurant is an Italian place. We ate there one night but were not impressed (see review for La Rocca). It was expensive and the staff were less than courteous. The hotel prefers that you leave the key at the desk when you leave but it's staffed 24 hours. The staff were all very nice and helpful.
The location is quite good, just a couple of blocks from a major train/metro station, Norreport and across the road from there is the old Latin Quarter and just a few steps from pedestrian shopping streets and the Stroget. There are busses at Norreport Stn and also a few that go along a street one over from the hotel.
Unique Quality: The hotel has an environmental carbon neutral policy so that's nice in this day and age. There is free wifi in the hotel and bedrooms though there is also a desktop computer that they will charge for. There's a lounge in the hotel with free coffee/tea and there's a small bar as well.
Norreport Station is on the metro line that goes to the airport so it's handy for that. Regional trains also go through here so chances are you might not have to go to Central Station if you need a train somewhere. We did have problems with the ticket machine however and there didn't seem to be a ticket office or booth.
Directions: From Norreport Metro station. head towards the lakes going down a couple of blocks on Frederiksborrgade. Turn left on Nansengade and walk in 2 blocks and it's on the corner.
Reasonable prices, great location!
Stayed here for a couple of nights while visiting Copenhagen. I'm not very demanding of my hotels....I grade on cleanliness, quiet, staff helpfulness, and upkeep (but not style). These folks met the mark on all counts, even booking a taxi for me to the airport for early Sunday morning. TV programming was multi-cultural, including some US programs...even thought I recognized a Danish movie I'd previously seen in Canada many years ago on CBC (with subtitles). Only knock: no room service.
It's a 3 star hotel, and priced accordingly. There may be cheaper hotels in Copenhagen...to each their own tastes.
Unique Quality: Close to the Norreport metro and train stations...though it's a good central location to walk most places.
Directions: Close to the Norreport metro and train stations
Fine 3* hotel...
Pleasant atmosphere, not too big and on a perfect location to explore the city.
The hotel is on the corner, with parking facilities in the streets around. On walking distance from the Strogad in a quiet part of the town.
Unique Quality: - the location close to the shopping center
- old-style house
- rather small with appr. 50 rooms
- good breakfast
Directions: West of the center, near the Norre Sogade
