Buzzy Copenhagen hideaway known for its in-house jazz concerts, rum tastings, and rooftop terrace views
There’s no way around it—stylish though they might be with their leather headboards and herringbone knit throws, the bedrooms at this centrally situated sleep are definitely petite (even superior doubles clock in at a compact 130 square feet). Nevertheless, what Hotel Danmark lacks in room real estate it makes up for with thoughtful amenities like a fitness kit; an impressive organic breakfast buffet spread featuring freshly baked bread, smoothies, and mueslis; and an ultra photogenic rooftop that looks out onto the city’s half-timbered homes, the Tivoli, and Christianborg Palace. (A DJ spins here during the summer months.) If you’re still hung up on scoring spacious digs, spring for a one-, two-, or even three-bedroom suite, which come swathed in soothing sage greens and cobalt blues. The property’s single independently-run restaurant, Tivolihallen, serves an array of smørrebrøds (or open-faced sandwiches; get the dried cod) for lunch, while the dinner menu offers Scandinavian comfort foods like curry spiced herring and smoked salmon with dill.
In the Area
Surrounded by cobblestoned streets, Hotel Danmark sits on a charming stretch of the Danish capital. Bold-faced neighbors include Denmark’s National Museum, the Thorvaldsens (a single-artist institution devoted to the neoclassicist sculptures of an early 19th-century artist), and Stroget, a half-mile pedestrian-friendly expanse (and one of Europe’s longest streets) where your shopping spree comes with a side of Copenhagen’s best views. The city’s central station, with bus stops for access to more far-flung sights like Kronborg Castle (made famous by Shakespeare’s Hamlet), is just a ten-minute walk away.
How to Get There
I loved to stay in this well located and cozy hotel with a warm and homey feel to it. The rooms were clean and spacious with a classic and calming decór. We were staying in a charming corner room with large windows and a comfy big bed.The staff was friendly and professional and i enjoyed especially the breakfast. The breakfast room is nicely decorated and there is a full breakfast with a separate menu for warm dishes available. The wine hour is a nice concept and creates a lovely atmosphere in the hotel lobby when guest gathers in the lobby for a glas before dinner. Would love to stay here again for a shopping weekend in beautiful Copenhagen and also enjoy the roof top terrace of the hotel.
Danmark is in a very good location, central to a number of major sites. Staff where very friendly and efficient, breakfast was great and plentiful. Down side is the room was a dog box, could not swing a cat in it. Also no air conditioning, just a fan constantly left on. So you had a choice of cooking in the room or leaving the windows open all night and trying to sleep with all the street noise. Sorry folks, cannot see myself staying here again.
We are a family of six (four kids). We planned our vacation about five months ahead and made a reservation for a three room suite for all of us. The reservation was made directly with the hotel. Five days prior to our arrival we made a phone call to the hotel to make sure that our reservation is ok and that there are no changes. We've been told that our suite will be ready for us. Unexpectedly, on the day of arrival five hours before checking in we got a mail from the hotel stating that we won't be able to have our suite and we are been transferred to their sister hotel at the other part of the city and in two separate rooms!
No explanation was given to us!
When I called the hotel and explained that this is unacceptable to make such a notice on the day of our flight and checking in, I've been told that there are no other alternatives for us. Only after insisting to talk to the manager, and two more phone calls (done from the airport!), stating that we can not separate our kids and staying in different rooms, they gave us another alternative in another sister hotel but in a small two room suite. It was very tiny for all of us and far from what we expected!
I don't know how they run their business but they should be shame for that!
So if you don't mind to be played by the management and moved even on the day of arrival to one of their other hotels- go ahead and make a reservation to Danmark. Otherwise find your self a better place!
