Friendly staff clean rooms

Very close to the metro and Nyhaven so it's really easy to find your way around even if you're bad with directions. Staff is super friendly and helpful with any questions you have and they were able to check me in early (this will only happen though if the room is ready). Rooms are clean and I loved having a storage box (bring your own lock and you won't have to pay for lockers).
