Set on a cul-de-sac overlooking the Copenhagen Lakes, this 18th century building has four wings, including a large spa with rooms above it dedicated to wellness-oriented travelers. While most of the city’s attractions are within easy traveling distance, there’s plenty to keep you occupied, including taking your tastebuds on a trip around the world by sampling authentic Spanish tapas at Pintxos, rustic Italian pasta dishes in the tranquil courtyard at La Rocca, or freshly-made sushi and Japanese grilled skewers at Sticks’n’Sushi. Mingle with fellow guests at the nightly Wine Hour, or just bliss out at the spa with a lava stone massage and a session in the “Water Temple,” with its aroma steam room, sauna and hot tub.
In the Area
Immerse yourself in Danish life by exploring the surrounding neighborhoods. Right behind the hotel are the charming paved streets of Nansensgade, home to a host of avant garde fashion boutiques, like Kendt, gelato joints like Mamma Che Gelato, and sidewalk cafes with bicycles propped outside. Cross Queen Louise’s Bridge into fashion-forward Nørrebro, sometimes referred to as Denmark’s answer to London’s Soho, where you can visit Hans Christian Anderson’s grave at Assistens Cemetery, shop for Danish mid-century modern antiques, rock out to Danish dancehall and carbo-load on heavenly pastries at famous Meyer’s Bageri.
How to Get There
A lovely hotel with very friendly staff. Local shops, cafes and restaurants are close at hand. Rooms are a good size and comfortable. It has a nice "feel" about it. Amusing sign under the bed saying that there are no monsters because they clean there as well.The only small issue is the noise from the nearby main road. The botanic gardens and the Rosenborg Palace are only a short walk away.
Healthy breakfasts, no air conditionned but we can open Windows in all rooms, fresh Natural air du ring the night is better for health. You can find fans in all rooms if you have too hot. The hotel is located in a quiet zone, but you can reach a lot of museums and parks by foot. The hotel is entirely no smoking. The WiFi is Free.
Great hotel to stay, very friendly and welcoming staff; nice, calm and clean room. Good location, particularly if you wanted to jog every morning. Beautiful yard to relax, for drinks and to meet with friends.
Fantastic location a stones throw away from the lake. Great breakfast and really friendly helpful reception staff. The room had everything you needed except a stocked mini bar (only water!) which ultimately was a blessing in disguise given how much of the lovely Tuborg we drank in surrounding places!
Friendly service from the moment we walked in the door. We had a two level suite that was perfect for the four of us. They have a "comfort hour" from 5-6 and serve their guests complementary wine and beer! The breakfast was constantly being replenished and seating was available in and outdoors. La Fiorita Pizza is close by and is a gem of a place to eat. We were there in the hottest summer in 10 years, no A/C but still a comfortable room temperature.
