REVIEWED ON 18 OCTOBER 2005
This was about as average as average could be. Staff, particularly the old lady behind the desk, were excellent. Also, if you need money changing they do a good rate with no commission. Breakfast was more than adequate with meats, cheeses, jams, yoghurts etc.
The hotel was so so, stained carpets and our room was in the attic and rather cramped. The bathroom, or wet room, was tricky, careful you don't fall over. As you expect in capital cities the area near the railway station can be a bit mixed. But there are many, many hotels in this part of town and all are about five minutes from the station. This means a 25/30 minute walk to Nyhaven, but there are plenty of places to eat nearby, we tried Rosie McGee's and the Hard Rock cafe, which were both excellent.
The bus service is top class and the 1a tends to cover most tourist attractions. Take the 26 for the Carlsberg brewery. There were some working girls in the area and some drop outs, but it is being regenerated and several nice bars were close by. It is easy to avoid the undesirables by taking a different route. I would not return to the Ansgar, but then Copenhagen hotels are so expensive you may not have a choice. Beware, this is a very costly, but excellent place to visit.
