Amy Adejokun Section editor

The 71 Nyhavn Hotel is small, cosy and charming despite it not being at the height of contemporary Danish design. Set at the very end of the touristy Nyhavn harbour, the hotel is in a prime location between the crowds and the canal, with most of its rooms offering splendid harbour views. The hotel is a small boutique affair with a restaurant and lovely canal views. The decor is a little old fashioned, although well-maintained, and may be better-suited to the older generations, although you will find a good mix of ages and nationalities here. The main advantage of the hotel is the staff friendliness and the location as everything is more-or-less within walking distance.

    Location 5.29 /10

    71 Nyhavn is predictably located at number 71 of Nyhavn (meaning 'new harbour' in Danish), which is the old harbour of Copenhagen. The hotel also opened on the 71st day of the year. The area itself is one of the most picturesque of the city, but the hordes of tourists are off-putting. The area is worth the visit though as you'll find myriad photo opportunities, but the restaurants here tend to be a little more expensive without much to distinguish one from the other as they all serve pretty much the same food: a mix between Mediterranean (pasta and pizza) and herring, a Danish speciality. Otherwise the hotel is about 15 minutes' walk from Copenhagen's landmark, Little Mermaid statue and the Amaliensborg complex (the ruins and new buildings forming the royal palace). The 'Black Diamond', as the contemporary theatre is known, is also a few minutes away. Bredgade, the street where you will find the bulk of Danish furniture shops and the Design Museum, is a couple minutes away. The list of things to do in this area is endless as it is so conveniently located.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The 150 rooms are divided up into several categories: single, standard, superior, executive suite and junior suite. The executive rooms all have harbour views, which are worth the extra spend. Junior suites are roomier but have no particular view. The suites are duplexes, with the living area upstairs. The rooms in the original building are all beamed, adding to the charm of the hotel. However, the rooms are on the small side, which is the main issue when it comes to guest complaints. Also, as the building is listed, installing air-conditioning hasn't been possible. The rooms in the original building can get quite stuffy, especially in the summer months (June-September), but every room does have a fan hiding in the wardrobe. The rooms all have the same navy colour scheme teamed with the dark wooden beams; this makes the rooms look a little dark and old-fashioned, but it does contribute to the cosy atmosphere. The general feel in the beamed suites that you'll find in the old part of the hotel is that you are on a boat, which some guests may find off-putting. The furniture, dark varnished mahogany, is out-dated and should be swapped for something a little more contemporary, but this is in-keeping with the rest of the hotel. Otherwise you can expect to find the general mod-cons such as flat-screen televisions, stocked mini-bar and hair-dryer. The bathrooms, although well-appointed, are on the small side and are stocked with the hotel's own-brand toiletries. Some rooms have small bath-tubs, but they are so small that unless you have children to bathe, we would opt for a shower. Otherwise rooms in the old building do not have a safe, but guests can leave their valuables at reception, free of charge. Rooms in the newer part of the hotel have individual safes. We particularly liked rooms 206 and 216 with beautiful canal views and French windows - what a way to wake up in the Danish capital!

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The 71 Nyhavn is a small boutique hotel located right at the end of the busy harbour in a pocket of peace and tranquillity on the canal side. A lovely little 3 star retreat with a well-maintained classic style that would be better-suited to an older clientele, the hotel is quaint and its staff is extremely welcoming. The hotel building is instantly recognisable due to the big 'Number 71' hanging outside it. A charming 1800s red-brick building with original features dating back to its days as a small storage unit for loads coming in from all over the globe via the harbour, the hotel, like most hotels in the city, is part of the city's cultural heritage. The hotel comprises of two buildings, the second of which was built in the year 2000. With its 150 rooms and six floors, the 71 Nyhavn is a little bit bigger than a boutique hotel, but still has the aspect and atmosphere of one. The two buildings are linked via the ground floor, where the rustic décor looks spic and span, the varnished earthen tiles sparkling clean. The hotel has an extremely warm and cosy feel. At reception there is plenty of seating, where guests like to relax with a book and on the other side of the entrance is the breakfast room-cum-bar area behind which is the small quaint cave-like restaurant. Otherwise there is also a small outdoor patio with a couple of tables looking out onto the canal to the back of reception, where guests like to enjoy a coffee on summer mornings. In terms of facilities there isn't much else at the hotel, but then again, who wants to stay at a hotel when you have the rest of Copenhagen to play with?

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    Unlike many small hotels in the city, the 71 Nyhavn actually has facilities to eat all three meals onsite, whereas others make-do with a breakfast bar. The hotel restaurant is the restaurant manager's pride and joy, which came across quite evidently as he was showing us around. The staff here is exceptionally friendly and helpful. The restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner and serves fusion food - a cross between Mediterranean, French and Danish fare. The menu changes sporadically and looks fantastic. For breakfast a buffet of healthy alternatives to stodgy English breakfasts and American pancakes is served from 7:00am to 10:00am daily. The restaurant itself is in the basement of the hotel, but the room is bright and pleasant. Small and intimate, it can get quite busy, especially in the evenings, so remember to book a table ahead. The owner is a big fan of local art, and you'll find pieces of his private collection hanging in the restaurant, which adds a personal touch and colour to the otherwise neutral tones and natural textures. Otherwise lunch is served next door in the bar and the menu consists mainly of snack food and light Danish fare like Smorrebrod (open sandwiches).

    To know

    The hotel is inside a listed building, therefore the hotel cannot be at the height of technology like some of its rivals as permission to alter the structure is hard to come by - you will therefore notice the lack of air-conditioning in the summer. Every room does have a fan though. The hotel has parking but it is on a first-come, first-served basis and even if you pay for a spot for a 24-hour duration, the spot is not exclusively yours. However, it is cheaper than parking in the city (250 Kroner). Remember: parking is free at weekends all over Copenhagen.There is complimentary Wi-Fi access throughout the hotel. There is a safe at reception for guests staying in the old part of the hotel and in the new building all rooms have an individual safe.

    The hotel is part of the Arp-Hansen group, one of the largest Copenhagen chains; some more contemporary than others. See our reviews of the Phoenix and Imperial hotels.

      The rustic maritime Copenhagen Admiral Hotel is a converted warehouse with a well-known restaurant that is also popular with the locals in the evenings. Set in prime location right on the canal in Nyhavn, the hotel boasts some lovely canal views from its rooms. It has a wide-ranging clientele mainly comprised of cruise liner tourists on a stopover, which can cause a bit of hubbub during check-in and check-out times. The converted warehouse concept looks great, but the atmosphere feels a lot more impersonal and more sales-oriented than at other smaller Copenhagen hotels.

      The four-star art-deco and slightly outdated Radisson Blu Scandinavia is one of two hotels under the same brand in the city. The other is the Arne Jacobsen-designed hotel in the city centre. The Radisson Blu Scandinavia is more of a business hotel, but with it being a little out of the city centre, it also welcomes a range of leisure guests. The hotel wouldn't be our first choice as it fairly bland, but the rooms are spacious and suitable for families. There are also some great views over the city and a good range of restaurants onsite.

      Walking into the 4-star Phoenix hotel is like walking into a time-warp of Louis XVI kitsch. It isn't to everyone's taste, so have a look at the photos before booking your stay. Not a designer Danish item in sight, this hotel is probably better-suited to an older generation that prefers good old fashioned wardrobes to a handful of hangers hanging off a few pegs on the wall. Location is the hotel's strong point - two minutes away from the Design Museum, it is surrounded by high-end Danish furniture design boutiques. If frills and flowers are your thing, then you'll find them in abundance here! The hotel's main clientele is made up of cruise customers on a stopover.

      The Marriott Copenhagen isn't the best hotel in the city with its bland interiors and average location , but for fans of the brand, the Marriott is suitable. Clean and conventional to its image, the advantage of the hotel is its large rooms and its lovely views over the nearby canal. Otherwise, the hotel is similar to others under the same umbrella - an impersonal atmosphere and a hectic lobby buzzing with elderly Italian and Spanish cruise tourists isn't the most appealing of atmospheres if you're looking for a bit of that sleek Copenhagen chic!

      A small charming and cosy floating hotel that doesn't have much to offer in terms of facilities, but that is ideal for a different experience of the city. This 'boat-el' is one of a kind in the city and sits immobile on the bank close to the Islands Brygge harbour. Down on the water, the hotel is ideally placed for romantic sunset views over the water and if you like the idea of sleeping over the water, then this is the place to stay. It has two floors and a beautiful sundeck, which is the highlight of the hotel. CPH Living is close to the city centre and to the quieter Islands Brygge, which makes it a great base to explore the rest of the city from.

      The colourful funky Scandic Frontis a small young contemporary hotel that is part of the largest Scandinavian hotel chain, Scandic. It is the most urban of the group, with street art works hanging in various places. The hotel is in a prime location right on the canal in Nyhaven, from where pretty much everything is accessible on foot. The area is extremely busy but if you need a quiet retreat the hotel is calm. The hotel has an urban edge to it, from the reception to the rooms. The hotel often hosts street art exhibitions in its lobby, near the washrooms downstairs and in the bar area. The water-front restaurant is a bit more neutral and welcomes a varied clientele. The Scandic Front is ideal for young couples and groups of friends.

      Hotel Twenty-Seven is one of the trendiest hotels in the Danish capital, and although it looks good, the experience was extremely disappointing, especially the crowded and low-quality breakfast. The hotel's location is one of its advantages as it is situated right in the city centre close to small winding backstreets known as the 'Marais of Copenhagen' and it is here that you will find a plethora of trendy bars and restaurants. The contemporary Twenty-Seven is ideal for those of you looking for a stylish hang-out to explore the rest of the city from. The hotel otherwise welcomes a range of guests, from families to groups and couples.

Located between Copenhagen city centre and trendy upper-end Friedriksberg, just off one of the city's main shopping streets, Vesterbrogade, the hotel is surrounded by lots of bars and restaurants to try out. The boutique hotel was set up by Thurgut and his partner and their spirit shines through the personal service. Casual and friendly, guests feel at ease right away here. The hotel is an ideal place to stay for a range of guests, from couples to groups and families. A good budget option to explore the rest of the city from.

      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.

      Not only is the Bella Sky the biggest hotel of the city, but it is also the largest hotel in Scandinavia. Although not located within the city centre, it is a hotel that is worth staying at if you are a huge fan of large spaces and vertical gardens. Guests staying here must have access to a car as there is nothing at all in the surroundings. The hotel has proved to be popular with ladies for its 17th floor strictly reserved for females. Fun with lots of space for children, the monumental shopping-centre -like hotel looks great as far as its interiors are concerned, but feels empty and lacks atmosphere. The Bella Sky would have been a huge hit if it were in the city centre.

      The newly-opened Tivoli Hotel is the product of a fusion of the hotelier Arp-Hansen and Tivoli Gardens. The result is a large scale themed city resort that caters for families with young children. Brimming full with colours, you will find the various themes of Tivoli Gardens used here too such as the lampposts, the harlequin pattern and so on. The hotel has been extremely well designed and despite its colours and theme-park look, it doesn't look tacky; it hasn't fallen into the Disneyworld category, so rest assured. It is a great place to take young children, if you're into that kind of thing. The highlight of the hotel for adults? The Sticks'n'Sushi Sky Lounge on the 12th floor, which gives a whole other dimension to the hotel.

The hotel is in a small courtyard just off a main road that lines the lake (that looks akin to a canal). The service is flawless as are the hotel facilities. The rooms are spacious and despite a more or less subtle Medieval theme running through the decor, they are pleasant to spend time in. The hotel isn't much of a family hotel as it is fairly quiet, but it doesn't discourage them. The clientele is mainly made up of businesspeople and couples of foreign tourists. The hotel is ideal if you need some time out a little way from the busiest areas of the city.

      The Radisson Blu Royal Hotel is one of the city's main landmarks and few five star hotels. If you know what you are looking out for, then you will be able to appreciate its unusual structure that was especially avant-garde back in sixties' Copenhagen, when the architecture was still extremely traditional. It was an extremely popular hotel that marked the beginning of the era of designer-extraordinaire, Arne Jacobsen, whose name you will probably hear time and time again as you visit the Danish capital. The hotel has recently been renovated but its 60s spark has somewhat died away. The hotel is still a good place to stay, with lots of Jacobsen furniture - his original suite has even been left just as it was and is now open for visits. The hotel is a good option for all kinds of guests, from couples to groups of families.

The hotel's only major disadvantage is that it is located a few minutes' walk further out of the city than the other hotels we stayed at, but it is close to a metro station, Forum, making it easy to get to from the airport. The highlights of this quaint boutique hotel are its stylish yet low-key interiors and its terrace. Its cosy living room-cum-bar stocked with hand-picked isn't bad either. The Avenue is marked by Danish design, but it's a lot lower key than one might expect of Copenhagen, which gives the hotel a homely feel.
