Rating Copenhagen Admiral Hotel

Copenhagen Admiral Hotel
Copenhagen Admiral Hotel is a modern first class hotel in a 220 year old storage house, and has the Danish Royal Palace as its closest neighbour. Staying at this historic landmark hotel was an interesting experience, and you saw such a room as we stayed in. The dimension of the constructions were enormous and tuned with modern Danish design it provided a unique experience.

Nyhavn, Copenhagen - by winter time
Copenhagen Admiral Hotel enjoys a prime location. It is located by Nyhavn in the middle of the Danish capital, with a wide range of restaurants and cafes in beautiful old 17th and 18th century townhouses just around the corner. 
Massive wooden 18th century constructions

The Square Kongens Nytorv and the pedestrian shopping street, StrøgetCity Hall, Tivoli Gardens and the Royal Theatre is within reach by foot. Just on the other side of the harbour you can see the impressive new opera house opened in 2005.

We were met by a very professional staff at the reception desk, and were given room number 312, a executive double room priced at DKK 1100 (€148 / $195) per night. Price did neither include breakfast nor free Internet access.

Room 312 had two comfortable twin beds

We enjoyed two very good twin beds, and there was a small working space, and generous storage. There were two pieces of contemporary Danish leather chairs, and smart flat screen TV.  The hotel safe was so well tucked away that we located it the day we left.  

There were minor maintenance issues. The tap was dripping, and the chair by the desk was so worn that that I did not dare to sit on it fearing that I would end on the floor, but except for these two issues, there were nothing to put a finger on. Else it was very well maintained.

There was carpet on the floor, and this is a main hygienic issue as they are very hard to clean. There were negligible amounts of dust on surfaces and picture-, and mirror frames.

  • Inhouse bar and restaurant 
  • Rest area 
  • Private Wellness area, with sauna, the walk-in-shower or the steam bath rented for 50 minutes at prices ranging from DKK 50-200, depending on the number of persons. 
  • In-house masseuse
  • Air conditioning
  • Wireless connection - not free of charge (DKK 150 per night) 
  • Free PC for guests  
Breakfast was not included in the price, and we found the price to high to choose the breakfast at the hotel, choosing a croissant and coffee at a much lower price nearby.

Copenhagen Admiral Hotel was a good choice at a decent price in the Danish capital. This as Copenhagen is a expensive city to stay in, and that the price we paid were lower than you could expect elsewhere.

Beware that we did not pay regular rate this time, and we strongly recommend hotel booking sites if you were to choose Copenhagen Admiral Hotel or another hotel in the Danish capital.
