In the room:
Most of our rooms have cabinets that can be secured with a padlock. Padlocks can either be rented for DKK 20 or bought for DKK 50 in the reception. You are also welcome to bring your own padlock.
If you arrive early, it is possible to place your luggage in a locked room on the ground floor at your own risk. If you are travelling as a part of a larger group arriving before 2 p.m, then please contact us a couple of days in advance via firstname.lastname@example.org so that we have time enough to arrange storage for your luggage.
Individual travellers and smaller groups are able to store luggage for DKK 20 per person upon departure. Larger groups can either choose to store their luggage in one of their rooms by buying a late check-out until 1 p.m for DKK 200, or rent a room for an extra night if the luggage is to be stored for an entire day. Unfortunately, it is not possible for groups to use the luggage room upon departure.
On very busy days it may occur that our own storage room is fully occupied at check-out time. On such days, we recommend LuggageHero, who offers luggage storage in several locations in Copenhagen. It is easy and quick to use and costs €1 per hour plus a €2 start-up fee. Find a suitable location for your luggage at LuggageHero.com
