Although near city center, rooms are small, bathrooms are small, no walk in showers, soap is from push bags, too hard to deal with, no washcloths, or foot towels. would not stay again in such a small room, no air conditioning, noisy room with windows open into late at night or early morning. Not restful as all.

Centrally located to Central Railway and we arrived by rail from Hamburg. Only 2 short blocks walk out the back exit from the rail station with a smooth surface pavement for wheeled luggage. Walking distance to a main shopping area. Helpful staff at front desk. Room very comfy, elevator entry quirky, breakfast fabulous with plenty to chose from. Husband is...

The location is walking distance to the central train station and Tivoli Gardens. The staff is helpful when asked. The room decor is rather cheap and gaudy, but the room was spacious and had a refrigerator. Breakfast is not included but is available.

My daughter and I stayed here in march. Great location, close to the train station and meat packing district. Nice walk to the rest of Copenhagen attractions. The hotel was up to date, clean rooms and friendly staff. I would recommend while booking, to make sure breakfast is included in your room rate. It is very good but fairly expensive...

My mom and I stayed at the Absalon Hotel for two nights after a cruise. It was a perfect stay! The hotel is beautifully decorated, from the lobby to the rooms. We arrived early and were able to store our luggage in the luggage room until our room was ready. The front desk ladies were super helpful. The breakfast spread...

Just a couple of blocks from the Central train station and Tivoli Gardens, the Absalon Hotel is a delight with good sized rooms for European standards and updated bathrooms. Yes there is a church with some homeless people and some sex oriented shops across the street and you might get approached for drugs or prostitutes in the late evening, but...

We really enjoyed our stay at Absalon Hotel. The rooms were very modern and spacious and the location of the hotel is great (5-10 min walk to Tivoli Gardens and the meat packing district). We were able to walk the whole city from the hotel. The service was also wonderful and they had a large storage rooms for guests to...

We stayed at the Absalon after a long cruise before our early flight home. We walked from the train station to the hotel - close enough to maneuver with all of our luggage. It was too early to check in so we were given an electronic key to the luggage storage. We went into the bar area to have coffee...

Clean! Modern hotel. Our room wasn't large but it was sufficient size for two. The bathroom was very up to date and very large space. The breakfast buffet was hamazing! So many choices meats, cheeses, boiled eggs, cereals, all types of breads and fruits to name just a few. We felt like it was a true Copenhagen experience. Very close...

Booked here for a couples of nights visiting CPH. At first I was put off as it's in the 'red light district's but I shouldn't have been. The location is amazing, literally 30 seconds from central station. Great room and excellent hotel bar. Will book again when visiting CPH.

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
