The Guldsmeden chain has, in recent years, earned a reputation for eco-friendly, sustainable hotels infused with a distinct aesthetic gleaned from ventures into South Asia. Bertrams Hotel Guldsmeden in Copenhagen’s hip residential district perfectly reflects these values, with a cozy modern design sprinkled with traditional Balinese elements and offering delicious organic food and eco-friendly accommodation.
At this inviting hotel – a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner – you’ll find a ground floor comprised of warm, welcoming lounges, decorated with original artwork, plus a furnished garden courtyard overlooked by the upper-floor bedrooms. You’ll also find the breakfast room here, where delicious organic breakfasts of freshly baked breads and croissants, hams, salamis and cheeses as well as fresh yogurts, smoothies and cereals are served daily.
Bedrooms are cozy and well-appointed in signature Guldsmeden style, with Persian rugs and Balinese design flourishes. All have wooden floors and en-suite bathrooms with showers. Your room will come with a street view.
Though the hotel doesn’t have a restaurant, the lovely Pony KBH Restaurant is nearby, where simple dishes of high quality ingredients are served alongside wines from a cellar stocked with bottles from across the continent.
Vesterbrogade has in recent years undergone a number of changes and is now a trendy residential district peppered with nice cafes and vibrant jazz bars. Here, you’re well connected by bus and metro to the central canal district of Christianshavn and the medieval center of Indre By, where you’ll find Copenhagen’s top sights like the royal residence of Amalienborg, Rosenborg Castle and the political center of Stoltsholm. Within easy walking distance of the hotel are the fascinating Museum of Copenhagen and the urban oasis of Tivoli Gardens. Copenhagen is a city for cyclists and you can rent bicycles at the Bertrams Hotel and explore at your own pace.
How to Get There
We had a nice 2-night stay here. The location is slightly off the beaten path yet close enough to walk over to major attractions. We like to exercise and walking allowed us to experience the neighborhood. There are several restaurants and cafes nearby and we opted to get out among the locals for breakfast although it is offered by the hotel. The front desk staff is extremely helpful and friendly. We actually enjoyed their company when we came in from sightseeing each night. They'll make sure you get your "apple-a-day". Our room had an odd shape but was not much of a hindrance as the room was comfortable and well-appointed with robes, slippers, and toiletries, There is even a balcony with a small table and chairs. And the bathroom easily accommodated 2 persons getting ready. If we ever visit the area again we would consider this hotel.
Hotel is very central, walking distance to train station. Very helpful slightly eccentric receptionist - suits this rather quirky hotel. Lift to upper floors miniscule - attractive décor in hotel Rooms very comfortable and clean. Breakfast mainly vegetarian - but lovely quality homemade food. reasonable wine by the bottle at night
Tastefully furnished, nice staff, good breakfast in a smartly designed room. Overall well worth recommending. Parking is a problem though. There is a P-facility not far away but, strictly speaking, there is no way to even unload luggage at the hotel entrance, since you're not allowed to stop your car in the street. You simply have to risk a ticket, and in our case it costed us despite efforts to cause as little hindrance as possible. The hotel is not to blame of course, rather a stubborn and seemingly stupid parking warden. We've all met them, havent we. It's their job, I suppose.
