Lovely older hotel with spacious suites and a very courteous helpful staff who were very knowledgeable of the area. the Park is within walking distance of the Strøget, Tivoli, Nyhavn and the palace. A very nice continental breakfast with good danish breads and the obligatory soft boiled eggs served in egg cups. We have recommended it to friends and will stay there again next time we are in Copenhagen.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Fox Copenhagen

Less Than Expected

from pilotohielo
I agree with most of the reviews so far. Some will love it; others will hate it. The rooms are certainly interesting in terms of design. The hotel patio is very nice when the weather is pleasant. Breakfast is unique. It is certainly not something you can complain about if you go to Hotel Fox with an open mind (as well you should). For example, not many hotels offer crepes in the morning. Those at hotel Fox are very good. The staff wouldn't go out of their way to be helpful, but they were helpful. In short, Service is not the strength. The dispositive fact of my critique rests on cleaningness. Despite feeling comfortable, a horid stench protruded from my bed. It was a terrible smell that can't be described except for what you might expect a bad smelling mattress to smell like. I told the front desk about it. They said they would do something and the next night, the bed smelled somwhat less putrid, but still putrid. Hotel Fox is not worth the cost if you value cleanliness. In my opinion it is the most important facet of a hotel's business.

Very hip but...

from angellic72
We were very excited about going to Hotel Fox. Each room is different, designed by a range of graphic designers, artists and so on. Copenhagen is THE hip city of the moment so we were expecting great things. Our room was certainly different but it wasn't absolutely clean and when you are paying good rates you expect it to be at least spotless? The entrave/reception is all white and looking very tired.
It was definately an experience. The deck area on the first floor is great - definately recommend taking your cocktail and enjoying some Danish summer up there.

An Artistic Feast

from Y
We stayed three nights at the Hotel Fox in June 2006. Each room at the Hotel Fox was created by a different artist, so each is unique. One of the treats for us was to look at all of the diffently painted doors, and to look into the rooms while they were being cleaned. The rooms are interesting as well as comfortable, with modern amenities. The breakfast is served in the lobby, and includes a wide variety of foods. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. Overall, it was a great experience.


Great idea , sadly done on a miniscule buget... requested room not available, even after requesting it 2 months prior!! was given a "similiar" room which was so tired & worn I asked to be moved...
mmmm mistake the new rooms bathroom obviously had a MAJOR problemm with drains.. the smell was awful. When I complained was told "its an OLD building".
Then obviously the front desk had checked someone else into my room luckily I was still in the room.. Once again I complained was told it was housekeeping(?????) with luggage????
so obviously I immediately checked out ...
felt quite unsafe ...!!!

Interesting concept - for a night or two!

from jmlparis
We spent three nights at the Hotel Fox and this is a really mixed review. I loved the concept of having every room styled by someone different, but from I saw it was very much style (loose concept) over substance. The designers had a limited budget for each room and they were allowed to do whatever they wanted. Unfortunately, that results in very different rooms with different levels of amenities - some work, while many others don't. We had an extra large room on the first floor. It was quite large, but the bathroom was tiny. The bed was (I think) 1.5 metres off the ground and 3 metres wide, stuck in its own space, so no room for side tables (except a ledge that stuck out over the bed) and only one place to step down. The decoration was like being in a park - including a park bench for a chair and a beanbag. There was an armoire for your clothes, but not many clothes hangers and no drawers. So, the room was "wow" but it didn't really work, especially for more than a few nights. Couldn't really sit anywhere comfortably. And would not really recommend it as a hotel for business people - unless you don't need to do any work (no desk in our rooms and none in most of the rooms - would need to ask for a room with a desk). This hotel could be fabulous - it just needs more basic amenities in the rooms. A word of warning - the hotel is on a busy street so road noise was really bad in our first floor room. And, as we were there when it was hot (about 30 degrees) we had to choose between a stuffy room (no airconditioning) or road noise to sleep at night.

Now the positives, great location - easy to catch the bus everywhere or walk to Tivoli, main historic part of town, etc. There is a nice open air deck outside on the first floor. The reception bar doubles as the breakfast bar in the mornings and the cocktail bar at night. The breakfasts are superb - lots of little things served in glasses so you can choose what you want and how much. Yoghurt, berries, muesli. Plus Danishes (of course), fantastic crepes and sandwiches. You can really set yourself up nicely here at breakfast. They have dinky little trays that fit the glasses and thermos for tea/coffee so you can take the tray back to your room, out on the deck or stay in the lounge area.

Another plus, is free wireless internet in the lounge or they give you a cable for free broadband internet in your room. All in all, an interesting experience, but I would probably stay somewhere else when I go back to CPH. By the way, loved the city! Did an escorted bike ride, a canal tour, ate at The Paul (one star restaurant in the Tivoli - cost almost as much as our three nights at the Fox Hotel! but loved it) and took advantage of the free bikes on offer all over city.

Interior Design??? Glorified Graffiti

from rightofcenter
We arrived and they did not have a record of our first night, but we were in luck as they found a room for us. This room had the most hideous cartoon like drawings on the walls, had no closet, no place to hang clothes, the darndest bed we had to climb into (my husband hit his head on it in the middle of the night), no place for suitcases, and a tiny bathroom. I was dismayed to say the least. We complained and the next 4 nights were given the "more traditional honeymoon suite" which was a small attic room with less objectionable, but still very bad juvenile "art" on the walls, a closet of sorts and a slightly bigger bathroom. After I got over my substantial disappointment over the decor, we had an OK time. The breakfast was trendy and good. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The location of the hotel is terrific. The main problem is the decor and the fact the the rooms were designed with absolutely no thought to guest comfort. It's a mystery to me. This could be a great hotel with a few decor and design changes.

I give the Hotel Fox an above average grade for two things - location, and a great breakfast. It's close (5 mins walk) to Tivoli, Stroget, Rathaus, and the brekky was totally to my taste, great yoghurts, fruit, danishes, smoothies, and sandwiches. Yum. We stayed two nights, and that's really long enough for the room, very small, typical European size. The interesting artist-designed paint schemes on the walls do not make the rooms any more comfortable or add amenities. Comfy bed and duvets, and the bathroom was perfectly adequate, great hairdryer and water pressure, the ubiquitous and horrid hair-and-body-gel-in-one. The only major downside was the noise from the rooms above, but that seems to be a problem with lots of hotels. I would stay here again, but maybe not if I could book into the Admiral Hotel near Nyhvn for the same price! And I'd have to overcome my low-level-oh-my-god-this-city-is-so-expensive-anxiety to go to Copenhagen again (USD60 to park the car each day, and USD8 for a beer!!!!)

WOW, what a place

from Sailor1977
I stayed in the FOX and I LOVED it.
As a business traveler I spend more days in hotels than in my appartment. The FOX was a very welcome different hotel experience.
To describe the rooms, they are all different, have a look at the website as I cannot write so much [--]. I like best Number 514 and 407 where I stayed so far. Next time of course I will try another one, it s just so much fun.
The young team is really friendly and makes you feel home, somthing you often miss in an average hotel of a big chain. The Receotion turns to be a bar in the evening and a breakfast buffet place in the morning.
TIP: I tried the three course menue in their restaurant. It can be ordered with coktails that are made of the ingredients of each dish - WOW - I never had a cucumber, dill cocktail with sake and whiskey before but it was perfectly combining the experience of the fishcourse. It is excellent and on a very high culinaric level that you might not expect in such an easy going athmosphere.
I talked to many other guest during my stay and the all appreciate the athmosphere. Of course... if you are a conservative, traditional oriented, folk music-listening person you might rather stay in another place.... Nevertheless you would be welcome to the Fox-Community.

Hip with a twist

from A TripAdvisor Member
I must admit, when I booked this hotel it was more for the novelty more than anything else. The website to the hotel is very good and being able to see the designs for each room helps. When I booked the room, I made a couple of requests that were to my taste and the hotel happily accomodated.

We stayed for 2 nights and upon arrival, I was impressed with the room, however after the 2nd night the novelty wore off and I realised that we were really paying for the design factor rather than anything else. The furnishings are simple and the amenities in the bathroom basic (they could have done better). The bed is very comfortable though.

If you stay at this hotel, make sure you eat at the Restaurant. The food was fantastic, with associated cocktails with each dish. It topped off the stay. The breakfast is also interesting as everything comes out in little glass cups. Once again a nice novelty, though a little impractical because I felt like I ate a lot because I had to go through all these little cups whereas the reality was that I was still hungry.

Design over comfort!

from Brighton69
We stayed 24 & 25 march 2006.
This Hotel is 'over-designed' and is not worth the money.
We had a number of issues. My room 412, described at check-in as 'our newest room' lacked several essentials. The window had only a net curtain, and therefore as soon as the sun came up, the light poured onto the bed directly in line with the window. There was nothing to hang clothes on at all! The bathroom was so small that in order to sit on the toilet you had to close the bathroom door.
There were no instructions on how to use the phone, so a call to reception took forever to work out.
Breakfast is just appalling. Again over designed! Muesli in thimble sized glasses, or fruit or yoghurt in the same. Not a Danish pastry, but a slice of Danish pastry - and though a wide selction of fancy teas, no straightforward tea. To eat breakfast you have to lounge back in chill-out seating, balancing a fancy plastic tray!
When will Hotels learn that great design is only part of a successful package - not the only part. Comfort in the room and a good breakfast are far more important. In my view, avoid this uncomfrtable Hotel at all costs.

Top Local Tips for Copenhagen

Electronic music VEGA is absolutely the best place to go. Cheap and fast served bar. cool atmosphere with great music.

Tivoli Tickets and a Great Hotel Check out the Square Hotel... we used the Tivoli Weekend plan... saved some money on our room and got free tickets to Copenhagen's wonderful amusement park, Tivoli, located just around the corner!

Opera House The most magnificent chandeliers I've ever seen! (In addition to all-around fabulous architecture)
