Located in the very prominent town-hall square, The Palace Hotel is a four-star hotel just down the street from the famous Tivoli Gardens and Strøget, the pedestrianised shopping area. You couldn't ask for a more central location. The hotel compliments the square as it is in keeping with the style of the town hall building.
We paid $100 for the room on Priceline.com. We were less than thrilled about the amenities that were supposed to make it a four-star. I think we got the Priceline.com room. I can tell you that the room on the website looked nothing like the room we got!! Everything was clean and comfortable, but it just wasn't what we expected for a four-star. We asked for a view of the square, which they didn't have so we ended up with a view of the slummy looking buildings in the back of the hotel. Also, there was a sewer vent in the bathroom that was spewing out an unpleasant odour which was solved by pouring some water down the drains.
There was a wing of executive rooms with names of movie stars on the doors. These rooms are the suites that face the Town Square. They looked very nice!
Breakfast was enjoyable. There was the usual breakfast buffet with meats, breads, juices, cereal, etc. We filled ourselves up and set off to pack our luggage.
The front desk staff were courteous and friendly. We were able to leave our luggage at the hotel until it was time for our train to leave that afternoon.
The lobby was very elegant-looking. It had couches and chairs set up for guests to sit and relax. It was classy-looking decor, very old-style. The restrooms were down in the basement and were fancy. Poor guy in the mens room across the hall couldn't get the door open, I thought I was going to have to go get someone!!
Overall, I would still recommend this hotel if only for the location. It is such a beautiful old hotel in such a perfect location--too bad all of the rooms weren't renovated to look like the rooms on the website!!
