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
I just don't know where you would find a better hotel location in Copenhagen; clearly the center of action. That being said this is a nice, but pricey, boutique hotel with many positives. However, there is very little bathroom counter space and little actual in room storage space, and we had a bigger than average room. While many reviewers rave about the breakfast, I found it was about on par with most high end hotels, although very crowded at times. If you can afford it and want to be where the action is, this is for you. I must say our room was quiet when the windows were closed.
In spite of very wet weather we enjoyed our trip to Copenhagen, and this hotel certainly helped. It’s a great place to return to at the end of a day spent exploring the beautiful city: a converted warehouse with exposed beams and complementary decor, very clean, and the staff were pleasant and efficient. The breakfasts were great; a huge choice of hot dishes, cold dishes, fruit, smoked fish, Danish pastries, yogurts, good coffee - everything to set you up for the day. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with a sofa, very clean en suite, and coffee maker.The hotel is on the prettiest street in the city and very well situated for exploring by foot, boat or public transport. Don’t miss the Design Museum and the Butterfly and Palm Houses at the Botanic Gardens, and a canal trip is a must.
The restaurant for dinner and breakfast is a little bit strange, Small tables and uncomfortable. The menue for dinner is a bit too exotic. The stairs betwewen the two buildings makes is a bit difficulkty to find your way.
