Phoenix Review

The hotel was originally built in the 1680s but was torn down and rebuilt—rising from its rubble, just like the mythical Phoenix rose from its ashes—in 1847 as a plush, Victorian-style hotel. Suites are large and adorned with 18-karat-gold-plated bathroom fixtures and reproductions of antiques; standard rooms are very small, measuring barely 9 by 15 feet. The hotel is close enough to city-center attractions that it gets a fair amount of street noise; light sleepers should ask for rooms above the second floor. Downstairs is Murdoch's Books & Ale, a snug pub done up in mahogany and brass that serves smørrebrød and light meals.

    Nice hotel

    We stayed at the Phoenix twice in June 2012. The room was a tidge austere, but that's probably just the "Danish" way. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was large, marble and lovely. The fountain/pool thing in the middle of the lobby is a strange sight. The room was pricey, but what isn't right now in Europe. The location is ideal. Walking distance to shopping, sightseeing, anything you could want. Location is this hotel's biggest asset. It's a great "walking" hotel to see the sights if you are so inclined. TIP: The Metro is just a very very short walk from the hotel and it goes right to the airport for about 1/4 what a cab ride costs. Ask me how we found that out!
    The desk clerk gave us the name of what turned out to be an AMAZING restaurant just right around the corner serving authentic local fare which we couldn't get enough of. Of course, the name escapes me right now...*sigh* We loved Copenhagen and would stay at the Phoenix again if we returned.

    Pleasant Accommodations at a Fair Price

    Recently stayed at this centrally located hotel. We had a junior suite which was well appointed, albeit a little small, but tastefully furnished with a nice sized bath with tub and separate shower. The location was very good for touring the city and the rates which we got on the internet were very reasonable. Also included in the rate was breakfast and internet - the latter a very expensive extra in most of Europe if you have to pay for it separately, which we did at the D'Angleterre upon our return to Cophenhagen. The rooms on the lower floor, which our friends had have nice high ceilings and are open and airy and therefore preferable to the rooms on the top floor, which is what we had and which have low ceilings and feel a bit cavelike. A very good deal for the price we paid.

    worst service - skip it

    This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Despite telling the night concierge three times my bag, which was lost by the airline, was being delivered tomorrow, the woman on the desk during the day sent it back to the airport. They also mysteriously checked me out for no reason. I came back to be handed my stuff in a plastic bag in front of a bunch of business travelers like a hobo. They were rude and unprofessional and unapologetic. There are plenty of great hotels in Copenhagen. This is not one of them.
