Its borderline-bleak black exterior, which seems more appropriate to an insurance office building than a comfortable hotel, is misleading. Inside, in a wing that doesn't front the same busy street as that facade, is a pefectly comfortable if predictable hotel whose bones have just a touch of '60s Danish design. Nothing too challenging or overly minimalist here, just big windows, a good-sized writing desk and couch, ample space, an interesting layout that places the bathroom elements in separate closets off the foyer, and all the usual amenities you'd expect of a respectable hotel that, it must be said, is popular with group tours. The breakfast feels a bit like a tourist-feeding machine in a conference room and the lifts are sometimes inadequate for the job of carrying all its guests, but you can walk within five minutes to Tivoli, Rådhuspladsen (Town Hall Square) or Tycho Brahe Planetarium, although a wide choice of restaurants is a little farther away. Overall, it's not a bad place to stay if you don't expect personalized service.
