Copenhagen Admiral Hotel

Reviewed 2 August 2014

A tricky one to review ... The room was somewhat tired and dated with a very small bathroom. Our son's sofa bed was broken at the end and didn't have appropriately fitting bedding. There were no pillow protectors which is basic hygiene. We were plagued by noise from a club til late and then woken at 6.30 each morning by construction work. It was very hot in the room but the housekeeping staff made the beds and removed the electric key to power the fan (no aircon). Cups and glasses were left unwashed or removed and constantly had to be asked for. Having said all the above the hotel is in a great location and we cycled everywhere and the breakfast was lovely with something for everyone - lovely boiled eggs and rye bread!

Room Tip: junior suites very noisy.Seems the higher the floor the noisier it became.

Beautiful character building in the smart bit of Copenhagen - sandwiched between the Playhouse and the royal palace and facing the new opera house across the water. The restoration of the building has kept a lot of the maritime character, including beams in the rooms and naval theming with model ships in the reception area.

The rooms are comfortably furnished and have an understated cool look, with good solid wooden furniture, comfy beds and windows that open. There is wifi throughout, although it's a little flaky in the rooms. Good amount of hanging and shelf space, a laptop safe and a minibar (the auto type,so no usable fridge space alas). Bathrooms are a little dated decor-wise compared to the styling of the bedroom, but perfectly fine.

The only real problem with the rooms are that they are extremely hot and we had difficulty sleeping as a result, which is why it's only 4/5 from me.

Didn't try the restaurant for dinner as no veggie options, but it looked popular including with non-guests, and breakfast was excellent. Huge choice of cooked and cold options, cereals, fruit,cheeses and pastries, all very fresh and kept well stocked throughout service and - by Copenhagen standards - an absolute bargain at about £17 a head (seriously, a coffee and pastry at a local cafe would be about £10). No wonder both breakfast rooms are absolutely packed every morning, this means a little bit of queuing but no shortage of food, as staff are out restocking regularly.

The cafe bar on the quayside was an absolute godsend during the heat wave in July. We spent a lot of time taking advantage of the shade and breeze there, service is attentive but not fawning (this is he same throughout the hotel) and it's not rushed, you can sit and nurse a drink. Prices are reasonable by local standards.

The other service we used in the hotel was bike hire, despite not being cyclists at home - if at all possible for you, cycling is a must-do experience in Copenhagen. And with the super cycle lanes, bike traffic lights and friendly drivers, we absolutely loved cycling around town and found it a very practical way to get about. The bike hire is about £15 a day and the bikes are quite heavy and a bit tricky to get used to, but well worth it.

Overall, if I go back to Copenhagen, I would stay here again, but I'd be happier if there was aircon in the rooms.

Lovely place. Really nice hotel. Book a room overlooking the canal. We had a suite and it was lovely. Very clean and comfortable. The bar and restaurant are fabulous. People talk about prices in Copenhagen but we didn't find it too bad. A nice bottle of wine in the hotel is about £22 so not too bad compared to London. You will get a warm welcome. The staff are lovely.

This is without doubt a lovely hotel and is in an excellent location. The exterior and interior public areas of the building are truly impressive and effort has clearly been made during its initial renovation to maintain the character and history of the building. However, there are some drawbacks with this hotel which may or may not make some difference to you if you are considering a stay. I will outline the good and bad below for clarity.

The Good Bits
1. Hotel Appearance - stunning
2. Location - excellent
3. Staff - friendly and accommodating
4. Service - good, especially appreciated the fact that we could leave our luggage all day after we had checked out as our flight was late in the evening

The Bad Bits
1. The rooms are quite dated as are the corridor areas on the accommodation floors - they are however well appointed.
2. There is no air conditioning in the rooms - this was a particular problem for us because it was 24 degrees + during our stay and the room was like a sauna day and night. This was also the case in the reception area. However it should be borne in mind that Denmark weather is normally on the chilly side most of the year and I guess that had we visited at a time when the weather was not so good this complaint would not have arisen!

So in summary I would recommend staying at this hotel as there are more pros than cons.

The window of our room was so small that very little air circulated in the room. It was incredibly noisy too - in the early hours with late night revellers, followed by street cleaning and construction in the early morning. We stayed only one night and moved to a hotel with air conditioning therafter.

It's impregnable. If the Russians attack with cannon during the night, this place could repel their explosives for some time. Windows are small, walls are thick, supporting beams are massive and exposed. No shortage of atmosphere in the architecture.

It's got a nice breakfast included, and the services of a better than 3-star, almost 4-star. Reasonably nice bar overlooking the water--which closes at 11 pm??? like seriously.

Room Tip: There's a street side and a water side. Obviously you want the water side. The fact that they...

Although the hotel has a convenient location, it has problems. The reception staff was not friendly nor helpful. Our corridor on the 5th floor was used to store many containers of linens - hardly a way to pay respect to the building's long history! Even when the large construction project is finished on the water side of the building, the view will be diminished. Although the hotel's restaurant, Salt was very good, I will not return as an overnight guest..

Room Tip: Don't choose the water side

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
