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 have stayed at the Guldsmeden chain once many years ago and had very good memories. Little did we show that this was the Guldsmeden Charlton, and not Bertram as we had ended up this time.
The lady in the reception spent five minutes explaining that we MUST NOT let people from the street outside in the reception with our key card waiting for the bus, and especially when it was raining – not to let any from the street inside – Why does she share such information with us upon arrival. Very unprofessional and unsolicited in the message. In what world would we let anyone from the street inside our hotel? (...)
We arrive at the room which is very small and cramped. The garbage bin from previous guests is not emptied. There is a carpet on the floor that looks like it has been there since the last century. #allergy. The bed is good so far, but the noise from the street - which lasts all night and increases throughout the morning. Breakfast costs $ 45 for the two of us, and bikes hundreds of Danish kroner. Where did this hospitality come from? I had a very good impression of Guldsmeden, but this experience totally destroys the impression. Sorry.
It is worth noting that the nice man on departure in the reception represents the impression I had before the experience at Bertram this time. Too bad, but true.
Very nice small hotel about 15-20mins walk from central station and city centre. The room i booked was classed as cozy on Expedia which it was along with the bathroom. I was alone so not an issue but could be a bit small for a couple with plenty of luggage. The reception staff were all excellent, very chatty and helpful. There was free fruit available in reception to help yourself to. Plenty of places to eat nearby and quite close to the Meatpacking district. Well worth a visit and i would return if in Copenhagen again.
Nice boutique hotel. Location is slightly away from centre of town but very walkable. Travelled as a solo female and felt very safe and comfortable. Rooms are “cozy” with very comfortable bed and well appointed washroom. Nice amenities. I didn’t have their breakfast but thought it looked quite good. Rooms were a bit warm and as my room opened onto the street I didn’t keep my window open. Close by are low cost grocers so it was easy to pick up food for the room. Cost reasonable. I’d go back again.
