Central location that’s comfortable and convenient
If you like staying close to the action then you’ll want to stay here. The hotel is located right near Stroget (the main shopping street in Copenhagen), Town Hall and Tivoli. You’ll never have trouble finding somewhere to eat and you’ll find it impossible to get lost on your way to an attraction.
The staff are very friendly and are willing to help you find your way around the city. We stayed at the hotel over Christmas and they left us a Christmas card and chocolates which was a nice surprise.
We stayed in the standard double room which was very spacious and comfortable for two people. There is a lift to get up and down floors but it’s a bit squishy. It still beats walking your luggage up to your room. There are about three security doors to get through before you can actually get into your room which can be a bit of a hassle when you’re carrying a lot of shopping.
The best part about the room was the free mini-bar drinks (all alcohol-free) but still better than any other hotel I’ve ever stayed at. The worst part about the room was the shower. It was pretty bad.
Plenty of famous people have stayed at the hotel from Ozzy Osbourne to Meatloaf. It’s a five-star hotel at the price of a three star hotel in Copenhagen (which is the price of a five-star hotel anywhere else in the world).
I give First Hotel Kong Frederik four stars.
