Clean, new and modern hotel in a great location. (2 blocks from the main train station & 4 blocks from Tivoli Gardens) Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. They served a huge incredible breakfast.
We plan to return in July 07.

Historical Traveller Reviews of First Hotel Vesterbro Copenhagen

Nice Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
New building and facility. Nice rooms, helpful staff and a good breakfast buffet in a nice airy setting. The entire facility is clean and nicely decorated. Easy walking distance to the Central Station. Basic TV with pay stations. It is quite expensive for outside calls and connecting to their high speed internet. We stayed on the fifth floor on the street side and it was noisy with the window open. When the window was closed it was quiet. The hotel itself was quiet and well laid out.

Overall A Good Hotel

from Michael/Steven
We stayed at the First Hotel Vesterbro on April 29-May 1, 2005 as the
last stop on our Scandinavian trip. The staff was very helpful and even
let us check in at 10:00 a.m., which really was wonderful. The breakfast
was excellent, though very busy later in the morning. They had trouble
keeping items filled on the buffet. The rooms are small but fine and the
location of the hotel is great: a few blocks from Central Station and Tivoli
and the Stoget pedestrian street. The only gripe I have is a very personal
one: I didn't like the bar at all. It was far too small, not separated from the
lobby in any way, and (though this is un-p.c. to say) there was no smoking
allowed there. Still, it was a small dislike in the overall scheme of the hotel.
It was a good value and a great location in Copenhagen and the Danish
people everywhere were very nice. We would stay there again.

t ask for more....

from A TripAdvisor Member
I took my girlfriend to Copenhagen for her birthday on the 16th December for 3 nights and we stayed at this hotel. I'm quite thorough when it comes to research and read all of the reviews for most of the hotels before booking this one on expedia (£67 per room per night).

I was looking for something well-kept and modern. I wasn't disappointed with this place. The hotel itself is about 7-8 minutes walk from the main square on a main road and about 5 minutes to the Tivoli. I asked for a quiet room on booking and was given one on the top floor (5th). The room itself was fairly compact but very clean and nicely furnished. There was a mini bar, largish TV, double bed and the usual stuff such as ironing board / trouser press. The windowas are double glazed which was good news as it was a bit cold outside! The breakfast was extra at 95 DKR (£9.50) each but we didn't bother - we had a Rough Guide which directed us to the cafe inside the Tivoli shopping centre (called Cafe Conditoi Hans Christian Anderson), on your right hand side as you walk towards the main square, which was cheap and cheerful (about £4 each) and another just off the main square (there are plently to choose from).

Tips -

the draught beer is more expensive than the bottled stuff. One place we went to was charging £7 for draught. The supermarkets sell bottled Tuborg or Carlsberg (both available in a large number of varieties, not just 'beer' or 'lager') for about 70 pence each.

the Tivoli is deceptively large and is good for children. It was very Christmas in there when we went but without being tacky. I think nightime is probably the best time to go.

the Little Mermaid is a good walk from the centre and a bit disappointing being then it looks out to a wind farm and factory.

food is reasonably priced and drinks seem cheaper if ordered with food.

the 'Illum' department store on the main shopping street is good.

Observations -

the people - I was knocked-out by how very friendly and obliging they were. They speak English which is good for me because Danish isn't my strong suit.

lots of people cycle around - there are bicycles everywhere. As a result, the air seemed very clean. I've been told that cars are highly taxed.

I liked it so much, I will be back, probably in the summer for a bit of contrast. Highly recommended place to visit.

Great Stay at the First, but Try Turning left...

from LilBeethoven
Just returned from 3 nights at the First Hotel Vesterbro, and I can highly recommend it. Modern clean and simple would sum up this hotel. It may not have swimming pools and nightclubs but it does have everything you need from a city hotel and more than most. As a base its perfectly located being just a short walk from Tivoli and the main shopping areas. The rooms are a little cramped but unless your planning to spend all your time there its not really a problem. Unlike many who have written here. we had the breakfast included in the deal and it was excellent with a huge choice , though on a busy morning make sure you lay your claim to a table and keep it. The staff were always very helpful and provided maps and guidance when asked.

Copenhagen can be expensive for food and Alcohol, though cheaper than Sweden. Get away from the tourist routes if you want to save money. I was recommended the Moose bar for the best value in Copenhagen where on a Thursday and Saturday drinks are 2 for 1 till 6AM, though unfortunately we didnt get to try it.

One huge tip is try turning left instead of right as you come out of the hotel. Most people head off to Stroget or Nyhavn for shopping and dining but the First hotel is ideally placed for cheaper shops and more varied and considerably cheaper dining options. Do try the Ankara turkish Restaurant about 300 yards from the Hotel (pass the Ankara buffet , the restaurant is opposite the Savoy hotel).

The restaurant has a 3 course offering for 89DKK (around 8 pounds) which you choose from the main menu. The food is excellent and the place is very popular with locals. Dont worry that the menu outside is Danish, the friendly staff will provide you with an English menu and any help you need. The food is more European than Turkish so you can get steaks, chicken and pork in sauces or more traditional turkish food if you wish. Try to arrive so that you will be mid main course around 9pm as the belly dancers turn up... A good meal , wine and entertainment for under 40 pounds...you won't get a main course and glass of wine for that around the tourist areas.

Another Bargain must do is the Carlsberg factory. Its a little out of town and an 'interesting' walk but well worth it. The tour is free and easy to follow , though not easily accessible to wheelchair users. Not only do you find out the history of the brewery and its ales but you get to see (and smell) the beautiful dray horses. To top it all you receive 2 FREE beer vouchers each, to use in the brewery bar. I'd advise trying the Carls Dark or Hvede rather than the light lager. Try to get here early in the day as the tour coaches seem to arrive around 12:30.

Great Hotel in Copenhagen

from hovis
Stayed at this hotel on a long weekend break in September 2004 on a good internet deal on the net .Very handy for the train station and within easy walking distance of the city centre & Tivoli Gardens. Rooms are very clean and tidy and the hotel is very security concious with a room swipe card required to operate the lifts and to gain access to the room corridors. breakfast was excellent to sayit was described on the website as asimple buffet breakfast- ample to eat and a good choice

Good Experience

from gaweca
Hotel is in a very good location, 2 or 3 blocks from the Train Station, and within walking distance to the majority of key sights in Copenhagen.

Seems to be a newer hotel, but is a bit worn around the edges. Rooms are good size. Housekeeping could be better. Ice machines are a nice surprise. Lots of tour groups in and out.

We really liked the First Vesterbro

from d956
We spent four nights at Copenhagen's First Hotel Vesterbro in late-August 2004. We really liked the place. Danish modern/minimalist type decor, friendly and helpful front desk staff, talkative and informative bar staff and outstanding breakfast buffet included in the room price. The location is outstanding for touring and the rooms are well equipped, with beds that I would rate as among the top five, in terms of comfort, I've stayed in at any hotel, anywhere in the world.

If you are considering this hotel, be certain to undertake some extensive internet research before booking. Prices between different sites vary widely. We were able to find a prepaid nightly rate (in U.S.$) of $167.00, including breakfast and all taxes, through an internet site based in either Sweden or Denmark. This price was considerably less than that available through the hotel's website or through the traditional travel sites generally accessed from the United States. Also, with the recent less than stellar performance of the U.S.$ vis a vis most European currencies, it was nice to have the hotel's rate guaranteed in U.S.$ and the bill paid for before our arrival.

All-in-all, a very high recommendation for this hotel. Outstanding comfort and value in an otherwise very expensive city.

Modern, clean and a very helpful staff

from CRichie
We stayed at the First Hotel Vesterbro in late June of 2004, and found it to be modern, clean, maybe a bit overpriced on the breakfast, but in an great location. We booked early and as a result the price was very competitive. One of our party needed some medical assistance while there, and the hotel staff put us in telephone contact with a Doctor, who prescribed medication for us over the phone, and all for a very nominal fee for the physician that the hotel added to our bill. I don't believe the hotel received anything for their efforts. Nice to find that kind of service while away from home. We'll stay there again next trip.

Great Location, Very Clean and Freindly

from jakub808
We stayed at the First Hotel in Vesterbro in March of 2004. The hotel itself is modern and new, the rooms are very clean (small for american standard but have everything that you need). The service was great, they had a free buissness center (although the inet connection was very slow). The food was pricey but there is so much around by the hotel, there is no sense in eatting inside. There is also a great grociery store next door with fresh pastries in the morning and best bread, we always bought food there for breakfest.

As far as where this hotel is, you can't really beat this location. The name is Vesterbro but its actually on the edge of Vesterbro next to the City. Its about 2 blocks from the grand rail station, and about 4 blocks from Tivoli Gardens. and 6 blocks from the center square and all the shopping, sightseeing. Basically everything is in walking distance.

The only thing far away was the major dance clubs, but it was really a short cab ride. We walked to Vega one night, it was pretty far. Rust is really too far to walk..

Overpriced but acceptable

from A TripAdvisor Member
This is clearly not a 4-star hotel by American standards. The room was small-ish and functional, rather than comfortable. It is very conveniently located, though. Just do not expect luxury. This is just a place to sleep.

Top Local Tips for Copenhagen

Get the train Don't bother wasting money getting a taxi from the airport, just hop on the train in the airport terminal and within minutes you will be in central Copenhagen. This was the most hassle free trip I have erver had... Also as a total asside, the Little Mermaid is totally overrated, and is in the middle of no-where, not sure it was worth the trek just for a photo....

Changing of the guard Make sure you catch the changing of the guard at the royal palace. It is something out a story book.

Marriott Our experience at the Marriott in Copenhagen has made use loyal guests of the Marriott. They were right on the canal so it was easy to get around to see all the historical sites. Review of other hotels in Copenhagen were misleading. I'm sticking to name I know. We first picked a hotel near the train station. That was a mistake. Buses and canal travel is far superior.
