The Admiral is well-located for the waterfront and for the principal sights. Although used by both Businesspeople and tourists, the latter tend to dominate in season. The effects can be off-putting: congestion at check-in time with rooms unavailable and waiting required for room access; tourists uncertain where lunch will come from dominating the breakfast buffet and cleaning it out; and taxis competing with tour buses at the front of the hotel. The first night of my stay, a group of guests partied with loud music on a rented boat docked alongside the hotel until 1:30am (calls to the front desk proved futile).
These reservations aside, the staff make every effort to help. Service throughout my stay, especially at the front desk, was very good. The Salt restaurant also delivers above expectations for this grade of hotel.
Bedrooms are modest relative to the cost. Problems included the water view which looked out on a wharf under construction; the lack of good sound insulation between rooms; and the wooden beams, charming but dangerous if you get up in the night without remembering they're there.
Despite all my reservations, I enjoyed my three nights at the Admiral. There is a certain uniqueness about the place that's sufficient to compensate for the problems.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Next door to royal residence Amalienborg Palace and just a short walk from Nyhavn, this imposing 200-year-old former granary warehouse is one of the largest hotels in the city, with 366 rooms - but don't let that put you off. It may not be boutique but big can definitely be beautiful. Beyond the two cast iron canons at the entrance is a neon-pink bar (great for a pre-dinner tipple), while guests retire to rooms showing off classic Danish touches such as teak furniture, low ceilings and original wooden beams. Best of all are the panoramas across the water towards the city's shiny Opera House and Christiania: a view fit for royalty. ... more less
