“Ibsens is a good value option for a long weekend or simply an overnight stay. It is situated 5 minutes' walk from Nørreport train, bus and metro station, and easily accessible to and from the rest of the city. It is near the university and several large churches. Of particular note is the charming Torvehallerne market situated between the station and the hotel, with amazing flowers, fruit and veg, and a bustling indoor covered area with delicatessen stalls and coffee outlets. There is a good selection of restaurants and cafes in the neighbourhood, and the area itself has a younger age profile, which makes for a different vibe from other more central parts of the city.
The rooms are minimalist in a danish way, but clean, with comfortable beds and decent linen. A good buffet continental breakfast, is offered with local breads and pastries, and nice touches such as "cosy hour" with a complimentary drink. The staff are smiley and genuinely helpful. There are a couple of restaurants in the hotel with a Spanish and Italian focus (not Danish!).”

“Why do people love staying in your hotel?
Our guests say: “Incredibly friendly staff always smiling and helpful. We thought that the lounge area was very welcoming and comfortable.”
We also think the local feel at Ibsens Hotel and the location right by the food market and Noerrebro Station is attractive to our guests.
What is there to do in the area?
There are restaurants and cafés all over the neighborhood. The Ørstedspark is situated next corner right beside Copenhagen’s new food market, where you can taste a wide range of foodstuff and delicacies as well as local produce,
What kind of breakfast do you offer?
The breakfast buffet at Ibsens Hotel is characterised by seasonal and local produce, and is almost entirely organic. Our guests get the opportunity to experience the Nordic kitchen with its wholesome foods and fresh flavours from the harsh Scandinavian climate. We believe in quality over quantity and follow three rules that we consider dogma: local, organic, and sustainable.
Do you offer other meals? And can you recommend good places to eat out locally?
Yes, we have 2 restaurants at Ibens Hotel, an Italian, La Rocca, and a tapas restaurant, Pintxos. We also often recommed our guest to dine at Höst: “Restaurant Höst has brought a taste of rustic Scandinavia into the midst of the urban Copenhagen ... And thus a true sense of what it means to be Danish '.
Which are your most popular room types, and why?
All our room types are popular. If you are travelling on a low budget, the Tiny, Small and Medium (for 2 people) are a good match. If you want more comfort and more space our Large, X-large and Junior Suites are good choices. Expecially the junior suites are great. They are situated in the corner tower and have a nice view - over 4 streets. They also have large - and a little bit vintage - bathrooms, with an old fashioned bath tub.
What facilities do you have for children and can you fit extra beds in your rooms
We are not really a childrens hotel. Ibsens Hotel is situated in the center of Copenhagen, where space is scarse. However, we do make extra beds in the large rooms, and we have a courtyard behind the hotel leading to a green garden. Beside the nearby food market is a large square, where children are playing.
