Comfort Hotel Vesterbro Copenhagen is one of two Nordic Choice Hotels in central Copenhagen and within about 5 minutes walk of Central Station and the airport train. The more upscale Skt. Petri, Ascend Collection is the hotel I have stayed at several times and is even easier to reach from the airport by Metro to Norreport.
There are also two hotels at CPH airport with Clarion Hotel Copenhagen Airport, formerly a Hilton until a brand change in 2018 and Quality Hotel Airport Dan, Copenhagen Airport. Clarion is at the airport, while Quality Dan is one Metro stop from airport near Kastrup Station.
Comfort Hotel Vesterbro 20,000 Choice Privileges points per reward night (or 10,000 Nordic Choice Club points)
My stay at Comfort Hotel Vesterbro was due to a free night using 10,000 Nordic Choice Club points, which were set to expire later this summer. Choice Privileges charges 20,000 points for Comfort Hotel Vesterbro or Skt. Petri, so that makes for an easy choice where to stay using points when in Copenhagen.
There is a large lobby in the hotel with a restaurant to the right of the main entrance. The place was calm when we arrived around noon to check-in, but the following morning the lobby was packed with tour group guests and we saw a couple of tourist buses outside when we left the hotel around 9am for the airport.
Our room was ready at noon. WiFi and breakfast included. I noticed 23DKK bottles of beer in the refrigerator beside the front desk, which is a decent price in Copenhagen. There are two good-size grocery stores on the streets near the hotel.
The lobby had a couple of Walk & Work treadmills set up for work space while you exercise.
Key card is needed for the elevator. Our room 249 on second floor was easy enough to walk downstairs once you navigated the interior hallway maze to the room. Straight, left, right, left, right, right were the series of hallways to reach room 249. Mentally, I pictured a hotel fire and trying to navigate out of the building. Simply going out the room window into the interior courtyard seemed to be a reasonable course of action. Our room was only about 12 feet above the courtyard patio.
The big zipper on the wall is eye-catching.
There was no refrigerator in the room.
We were at breakfast around 8am and it was crowded with people. The usual fare with the same set-up of food selections on both sides of the counter.
Comfort Hotel Vesterbro Plectrum Restaurant and Bar
Plectrum Restaurant is immediately to the right inside the hotel entrance.
The breakfast buffet was in a separate space on the right side beside the lobby area.
One other design feature of note is the lobby spiral staircase leading to the second floor conference area space.
All in all, I would stay here again using 20,000 Choice Privileges points if Skt. Petri were not available. Copenhagen is an expensive hotel city. Comfort Inn Vesterbro priced at $300 per night for our date, while Skt. Petri priced at $600+.
Choice Privileges points are a cheap way to stay in Copenhagen. Comfort Inn Vesterbro is only 10,000 points through Nordic Choice Club.
I covered the differences in reward rates between Choice Privileges and Nordic Choice Club in this article.
I may briefly cover Skt. Petri, Ascend Collection where we also stayed on this trip. I don’t have much to add since the room was almost identical to the room we stayed in last summer.
