"Comfy but small rooms...inconvenient location" Wakeup Copenhagen Tip by travelmad478
Wakeup Copenhagen, Copenhagen: 2,006 reviews and 10 photos
The Wakeup is about a 10-minute walk from the central train station, but it is in a neighborhood with absolutely no shops/restaurants/services, nothing around at all. If you stay here, it is more or less imperative to get the hotel breakfast (60 kroner/person/day) or you will end up having to walk back to the train station to eat every morning.
The rooms are very small, a tight fit for two people, but reasonably comfortable with a good TV and free wi-fi. No closet, just a couple of hangers and a drawer under the bed, so pack light! There are no coffee/tea facilities in the room. The bathroom is also tiny but clean and well-designed. Towels, soap, and a packet of shower/hair gel are provided, nothing else. The rooms are very modern and quite clean, which is nice.
The big downside of this hotel is the price. For what you get, it is shockingly expensive. In June 2011, I paid USD 250/night for an 8-square meter room with breakfast for two people. Given the remoteness of the location, this seemed really excessive. Two years ago, we stayed at a very similar but much better located hotel in Berlin, Motel One Alexanderplatz, for far less. I'm not sure why Copenhagen is such an expensive place to stay, but be prepared!
