Copenhagen makes a breeze of city breaks, squeezing an impressive range of opportunities into its relatively compact cityscape. World-class museums and captivating, cobbled streets provide the foundations for a chic creative scene that spans design, fashion and food. Its culinary scope is impressive, with 15 Michelin-starred restaurants all sitting amidst super-stylish cafes and industrial-hip bars.
71 Nyhavn encapsulates it all, starting with its situation; the hotel’s set within two, striking, 200-year-old warehouses that sit right by the waterfront. Sitting side by side, the lofty yellow and red buildings are linked by an inviting lobby area and offer access to some of the city’s best dining, which can be found at the new SEA by Kiin Kiin restaurant. The considered refurbishment of these historic buildings extends all the way to the attractive guest rooms, which feature atmospheric exposed beams.
How to Get There
Magical setting and location, and a wonderful re-purposing of the property. Ceilings a bit low for this tall guest, but that's to be expected in a converted warehouse. Staff was friendly and very helpful, the room was spacious and well-appointed, and we appreciated the free breakfast buffet and in-room treats!
We were in Copenhagen to visit family, again and decided as we love the Nyhaven area 71 Nyhaven would be worth a visit. I' have to say it was. Everything about our stay was perfect. The location was great, beautiful building, steps away from all the Nyhaven happening but not affected by any noise, steps from the boardwalk and about 10 minutes walk from the Metro. Our room was in the more traditional part of the hotel but had the high end Danish sleek furnishing with an incredibly comfortable bed and roomy sofa. Plenty of space to spread out and fast wifi. The bathroom was well designed and plenty of space, lots of fluffy towels and high end amenities. We were on the 5th floor and in our 3 day stay we never had an issue with a slow or full lift. Check in was fast and easy, we had family coming to meet us and we'd popped out for a quick reckie of the area so weren't there when they arrived and the reception staff were fantastic, as soon as they mentioned our name they welcomed them and gave our 3 year old nephew a children's activity pack whilst they waited, just on that, the following morning as we passed reception they asked about the child by name. We had a drink and a snacks in the bar and again, the staff could not have been more pleasant and accommodating. Breakfast was included in our rate, but we think the cost is 225dkk and would have been worth every krone, several types of cereals, yogurts, breads, beautiful cooked meats, cheeses, pastries etc etc and even a more traditional Danish selection of curried herrings, picked herrings, pate and lots more, plus a chefs station with hot food and made to order eggs. What really made 71 Nyhaven so special and a hotel we will certainly return to was the attitude of the staff, nothing was a problem, the felling was that anything was possible and they were glad to have us there and sad to see us go. We had a great time and look forward to our next stay in 2020.
Really loved the location of the hotel, fabulous views from our room. Super breakfast options, recommend the oats/pancakes/smoothies and everything else too! Excellent staff in the breakfast area, they send you off ready for your day of sightseeing! Absolutely the best choice we could have made for our trip here and would certainly return and recommend to our friends!
