A Small Leading Hotel of the World, the Nimb Hotel is without doubt the best hotel in the city. A hard assertion to make about any hotel as it is rare to find a hotel that satisfies all the necessary requirements to make it a top hotel, but at the Nimb every detail has been studied closely to make it the perfect haven of peace and tranquillity whilst right at the heart of the city. Adjoined to Tivoli Gardens, the Nimb has a Michelin starred restaurant and an award-wining bar. The country home style rooms are luxurious whilst being extremely contemporary and comfortable. The hotel is perfect for a romantic break, and although it is rare to see children at the hotel, as it is in Tivoli Gardens itself, it could also be a good option for families. If you have the budget, there is no hotel that would come as highly recommended hotel as the Nimb.
The Nimb is situated right in the heart of the city in a prime spot inside Tivoli Gardens. It is located in one of the busiest areas of town, but once inside, the noise and movement ceases and falls away to the hotel's soothing colours and atmosphere. In terms of things to do, most attractions are within walking distance. The hotel is right opposite Central Station, which is directly linked to Copenhagen's main airport, Kastrup.
The hotel has complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. When you stay here, you also have free access to Tivoli Gardens (rides are not included).
From the exterior, the hotel goes pretty much unnoticed unless you know what you are looking for. With its white arabesque wall, it looks like it is part of the bakery next door. This adds to its exclusive atmosphere however. Inside the cool lobby, the traffic and the crowds fall away to the soothing atmosphere. A veritable bubble of elegant luxury, the Nimb is without doubt our top hotel in Copenhagen, which we have scoured from top to bottom to find out what the best place to stay is. Nimb has it all: history, location, authentictity, style, flair, atmosphere, good food, a spa and a smashing bar - what more could you wish for when staying in the capital of cool? Upstairs from the reception area is the bar, situated in what used to be the hotel ballroom when it first opened by the Nimb family in 1909, which is also when the building dates back to. The Nimb family were actually renowned for some of the best restaurants of Tivoli Gardens from 1887. The family took over the hotel in 1909 until it was sold to Tivoli in 2008 when it underwent a complete renovation. It used to be the high society's usual hangout, especially during the First World War. The new owners decided to keep the upscale standard of the hotel and also to retain its original style in the renovation; for example the Moorish facade has stayed the same since it was built. Although not tangible, it is this kind of detail linked to history that gives the hotel the edge that has been maintained extremely well throughout the work to bring it into the 21st Century. The jewel in the crown however, is the Nimb bar. A spectacular space that used to be the hotel's ballroomhas been transformed in a way that is contemporary, but that brings out its authentic features recalling its long history. The bar is a cosy space complete with chandelier and designer furniture, but its understated style keeps it from falling in the arrogant category.
On the ground floor, you will find the main restaurant, the French style brasserie-come-bistrot, and the hotel's signature Michelin starred restaurant, Herman's. The hotel also has a third restaurant just next door to the bakery which can only be accessed from the street; the Nimb steakhouse, which is also worth checking out if you have the budget.
In order to maintain the standards of the hotel's bespoke service the hotel only has fourteen rooms, nine of which are suites, which allows the personnel to give the best possible tailored service to a clientele they are able to get to know more intimately than at some of the larger hotels in the city. Every room has a unique style with a cosy atmosphere that will tempt you to stay curled up on your sofa instead of exploring the wonders of Copenhagen! All the rooms are individually decorated with antique furniture, Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 10 TV, BeoSound 8 iPod docking station and BeoCom 5 telephone. The rooms (except one) also feature a fireplace with birch wood, a four poster bed with Geismar's linen and mattress, and free wireless internet. The bathrooms are spacious with double sinks and feature luxury amenities. All bathrooms are fitted with bath tubs except for room 14.The art on the walls has been hand-picked to give the room a personal touch. All of our rooms (except one) overlooks the the charming Tivoli Gardens, which is great during the Christmas season when there are concerts going on in the gardens; the rooms are ideally placed to watch the concert from the comfort of your room at no extra cost.
There are four categories of rooms here: double, deluxe, junior suite and suite. The rooms are all absolutely dashing. With a careful eye for detail, the rooms hyave been wonderfully put together. They are also spacious, which is rare in an old-build hotel in the city centre. To see a full range of room choices, have a look on the hotel website before making your decision. Expect meticulously sanded and waxed raw wooden floor boards, satin finish aubergine or powder blue rooms dressed in the most luxurious fabrics and adorned with unique pieces of original furniture to give a very successful countryhome feel.
There are four restaurants altogether, the highlight being Herman's, the hotel's Michelin starred restaurant on the ground floor. An exclusive dining experience, guests shouldn't expect the restaurant to be brimming with the same style as the rest of the hotel - plain yet elegant, the crisp white tablecloths and shined cutlery are enough to set the scene for an exclusive dining experience. The restaurant also has exterior seating on the terrace that lines Tivoli Gardens. In the summer, eating out on the terrace at lunch is a must. With a view of the gardens, you really feel part of Copenhagen, despite the Moorish facade of the hotel building! For more casual fare, there is also the Nimb Brasserie just next door, which also has a terrace. This is where breakfast is served. Next door to the bakery the Nimb Steakhouse is a must-try. With its very masculine hunting lodge style decor, the restaurant is open until late at night (kitchen closes around 1:00am), which is great if you've partying and are feeling a tad peckish before heading back to your room. The hotel also has a well-rounded wine cellar. Drinks are served trhoughout most of the day in the hotel bar if you are after somethinga little more casual than sitting down to eat. In the evenings, the bar turns down the light really low and the atmosphere goes from bright funky bar to soft, sultry and sophisticated. The hotel also has room service that operates at the same time as the Brasserie kitchen timings.
