We spent one night during this visit. This was the first time at this hotel, and, despite its great location, I am not sure we would pick it again. Warning: the "free" wifi system is difficult to navigate and is not truly "available" in the room, at least I could never get it in our room. I had to get a staff member to set up the wifi for the lobby network, which required confirmation by email, just all-around awkward. The concierge and staff are friendly and helpful.
Part of the hotel's problem is the huge, loud construction project on the waterfront upon which the hotel fronts, which is distracting and loud. Also, Copenhagen is also finally constructing a long-needed metro system, which is impacting the entire city with a lot of upheaval. It will be great when it is completed in a few years.
The lack of air conditioning became an issue for us due to the lovely, warm weather. As other reviews noted, one can leave the drape open in the evening, but the extended daylight and loud noise (construction, traffic and garbage collection) makes it a toss-up between heat and noise.
Also, the hallways are dark, narrow and a little unattractive. A trade-off is that the original beams add character and charm to the room. The bed was comfortable with a nice down duvet. The bathroom and amenities were more than adequate. We did not have an included breakfast: the buffet (your only choice is $27 per person).
- 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
