Nobis Hotel Copenhagen
What We Love
- The gorgeous conservation of the historic building, which was built in 1903
- Relaxing in the Instagram-worthy lounge, with its designer lamps and metal shelves stocked with objets d'art
- The hotel's unbeatable proximity to some of Copenhagen's biggest sites, including the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek art museum and Tivoli Gardens
What To Know
- The hotel occupies a landmark building that once housed the Royal Danish Conservatory of Music
- Rooms are handsome, but on the small side
Set inside the former Royal Danish Conservatory of Music, this stylish Copenhagen stay fuses classical turn-of-the-century architecture with the best of Scandinavian design – clean lines, simple accents, and lots of natural light. The results are breathtaking: high ceilings, oversized Bardiglio marble bathrooms with egg-shaped bathtubs, chevron-patterned wooden parquet floors, and Danish furniture from Carl Hansen & Son, including the iconic CH25 chair. Once you’re finished taking design notes, tuck into local dishes at the Niels Restaurant, where French and Nordic dishes are the speciality, or hit the streets in the direction of Tivoli Gardens or the Radhuspladsen town hall square, just steps away.
In the Area
The hotel’s great location in downtown Copenhagen puts you within comfortable walking distance to the central train station, the university, most major tourist attractions and restaurants. This city is the perfect place for cycling, so why not rent a bike and cruise around the sights?
How to Get There
Definitely returning to this classical design hotel. Stayed a week over beautiful spring but unfortunately timed right before Tivoli opened. Gives us another excuse to return. Conveniently across from Glyptoteket museum (free entry Tuesdays). Able to borrow hotel bicycles as needed (though true child size bike nor helmets available).
Downstairs restaurant with buffet breakfast included with room was excellent. Everything fresh and high quality. Dinner downstairs was delicious and worthy of reservations alone.
I found my room to be plush, clean and quiet (3rd floor, window facing museum). I agree light switches were a little tricky (at least they were for me) but my 11 year old daughter figured the logic of button location corresponding to specific light fixtures and using either a single press or prolonged press for gradual dimming vs on/off.
Room service was timely and attentive. Heated marble bathroom floors and towel racks a nice touch. Front desk staff were attentive when I needed to arrange for bikes, dinner, room service, taxis, etc.
Would stay here again upon return.
I was visiting with my sister(she was on business) and we stayed here. Close to everything! Staff was amazing, helpful, and knowledgeable about the area. Booked me on a day trip to Sweden. It was awesome! Definitely a fabulous place to stay.
The Nobis Hotel is very well located in Copenhagen. It is near Tivoli Gardens and walking distance to many city attractions. The standard superior room with en suite bath was a sufficient size but had few drawers and one small closet for storage. In May, no way to cool the room except to open the windows. Apparently, it is not customary to provide new towels, washcloths and to refresh amenities (like soap) each day; this was provided upon request. As is often the case with European hotels, no in room coffee pot but there was a mini frig mini bar. The breakfast buffet had scant offerings of fruit and pastries but had deli items, cereal, bread, soft boiled eggs, etc. Service for coffee was very slow — I finally fetched a coffee pot to refill coffee at our table myself. The elevators were also slow and were used by cleaning staff which made it even more difficult to get an elevator in a timely fashion. Very small fitness room (free weights, a bench, and one or two aerobic machines (bike, treadmill)). We have stayed at a less expensive hotel in Copenhagen with better amenities and service.
Nobis Hotel Copenhagen for December is magical. Tivoli Gardens opposite have fireworks displays. It is very central to the Parliament, canals, shope, cafes. Our room was on the ground floor on the corner, and was not noisy. It had a massive marble bathroom with free standing bath, walk in shower, with lots of hot water. The toilet is seperate, which is great. The room or suite was very clean. Air conditioning very quiet. Double glazing was good at blocking out street noise. Big windows gave views onto the goings on of Copenhagen. The only down side of the room was the stained leather topped table. As stated in other reviews. It is unfortunate. The natural leather tones in the room are beautiful except for this unfortunate detail. The breakfast at the hotel was delicious with lots of healthy breads, fruits, smoked salmon. The restaurant bar service was delicious too. Very healthy fresh food. The staff are very attentive and polite. The breakfast room is light and airy. A nice room to be in. The hamam plunge pool was a lot of fun. The sauna was good and hot. All was very clean and well presented.
The front desk service was awful. They were rude and not helpful in any way. The room they gave us, while a decent size, was horribly located and sparsely decorated. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. On the bright side, the bartender was very good and we needed it after all the hassle we got from the front desk.
