The boutique Avenue Hotel was one of our favourite hotels in Copenhagen as it is the perfect all-rounder whether you're looking for a quiet getaway for a romantic weekend, or whether you want a pied-à-terre for exploring the city from with your family. 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.

    Location 4.09 /10

    The hotel is located on Aboulevard, which is a five minute walk from the metro station, Forum. The airport is about 20 minutes away on the metro. The city centre is approximately 15 minutes from the hotel. The trendy area of Norrebro is a short walk away just along the lakes, where you will find various funky bars, cafés, restaurants and shops. Apart from an average Chinese restaurant and a bike hire shop; there isn't much to do in the immediate surroundings.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The 68 rooms are all slightly different in shape and size, what with the hotel being in an old Danish house. The light and bright rooms are well appointed and spacious. Rooms are either on the roadside or the courtyard side, but as the road isn't one of the busiest, noise isn't an issue. The rooms have a double bed made up of two singles with two separate duvets - don't be put off though; this is a Scandinavian tradition and is quite common at hotels all over the city. The rooms are nothing too fancy but they are clean and comfortable, despite the stained carpets that need to be changed in some rooms. We liked the specially-designed shelf for your phone and key, which saves you having to constantly look for them all over the room! There is a television with a good range of English channels, mini-bar, safe, a desk and lots of wardrobe space. The bathrooms all have showers and toiletries. There are also shower gel dispensers. The hotel is big on the environment; guests are encouraged to reuse towels as much as possible for example. The only disadvantage here is the view of other guest rooms across the patio area, so make sure you shut the blinds before jumping in the shower unless you want to give your neighbour food for thought! Otherwise we liked the fun touches that you'll find all over the hotel like the engraved 'I like water' tiles on the floor of some of the bathrooms, which adds a tinge of humour and a personal touch.

    In terms of room categories there are specially designed family rooms with four beds, which come in very handy as well as single, double and A+ rooms, which tend to be a little spacious and with the added bonus of a DVD player. All the rooms come in at fairly good value (prices start at 1,000 DK for a single room in low season up to 1,900 DK for a family room in high season).

    Overview 8.70 /10

    This little boutique hotel may not be slap bang in the centre of town, but it is well worth considering for its all-round good value. The Avenue is stylish and cosy with lovely outdoor decking furnished with comfortable outdoor sofas and coffee tables. The area is adorned with potted plants and flowers, which gives it the look of a country house - great for the Danish summer (not so great in the winter, mind!). There are also lots of toys and a sandpit for children. You can order breakfast or drinks from the bar out here. Otherwise the hotel has the aspect of a large house with creaking floor boards and large floor to ceiling windows in the staircases. On the ground floor you will find lots of seating including a cosy living room area to the back of reception. You'll find a handpicked collection of arty books that range from photography to contemporary art. The bar serves a range of drinks from the early evening, which is ideal for pre or post dinner drinks. There are also a couple of computers that are free for guests to use to the left of reception. If you continue down the corridor, you will stumble into the hotel's 24-hour shop where you can buy necessary items like a toothbrush, but there are also some rather snazzy souvenirs by Design-by-Us for example, to decorate your living room with back home. You won't find anything chintzy here. Still on the ground floor, there is also the breakfast room which takes up the other half of the floor. This room is basic but functional and fairly pleasant. Large photos of food have been blown up and hung up on the walls, which may put you off your food, or enhance the desire to try some of Copenhagen's 600 restaurants! The rooms are located on the upper floors.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The Avenue does not serve lunch and dinner, but it does have a breakfast bar, where an array of healthy options is on offer. You won't find bacon and eggs here, but don't let that put you off. Breakfast is served until 10:00am during the week, and 10:30am at the weekends. The breakfast comprises of brown seeded breads, cheeses, cold cuts, fresh fruit, smoothie, teas and fresh coffee, as well as pancakes and other nibbles. The area has been well thought out, so that no one is left waiting in line to have breakfast. Lined by a bay window, the room itself is pleasant and light. We found the blown up photos of food hanging on the walls are a little off-putting when you're having breakfast, but others may find them attractive.

    Otherwise the bar, which you'll find to the back of reception, is open from 12:00pm to 12:00am. Cosy and warm, staff is laid back and friendly while staying efficient. Curl up on a sofa with a gin and tonic while having a glance at the handpicked collection of photography books and novels. If spirits aren't your thing, the hotel also has a small wine cellar in an alcove just opposite reception. The wine supplier of the house Barrique vin, delivers CO2 neutral products, which contributes to the hotel's philosophy on caring for the environment.

    To know

    The hotel has designated parking, but there is a fee and parking spaces aren't guaranteed even if you book a space for 24 hours. Hotel parking may not be the most convenient if you don't find a free spot, but it is a lot cheaper than parking in town which costs about 200 Kr. for the day. That said, parking is free over the weekend. There is wireless internet throughout the hotel and as in most hotels in Copenhagen; the connection is free of charge. There are also two computers for guest use; however there is a charge of 150 Kroner for 50mins. The hotel is big on the environment, but apart from a note to reuse towels in bathrooms it cannot be felt at guest level.

    The house itself was actually built in the late 1800s by Emil Blitchfelt, who also designed the main entrance gate to Tivoli Gardens. The house became a hotel in 1939 and became The Avenue in 2004. The building has a long history, but the road it is on has an even more interesting story: the boulevard is built on top of a stream, hence the name Åboulevard (å = stream). This stream was part of a manmade watercourse-system that dates back to the late middle ages. There is not much on record about its history until Christian IV commissioned the building of a fortified farm in 1620. This was a huge, many storied building with 500 cattle on the ground floor. The buildings were destroyed the first of many times under the Swedish siege in 1658-59 and were handed over to the Municipality of Copenhagen in 1768, who used the buildings as a poorhouse, lunatic asylum, and forced labour camp for drunks, beggars and vagabonds until it was demolished in 1908. During this period more and more houses were built on the surrounding farming land and by 1857, when it became a part of Frederiksberg, it had the character of a town. In the 1880s these houses gave way to tenements, many of which still stand today, on both sides of the stream. In 1887 work was started to cover the stream and build the broad boulevard of today.

      • Location 4.76

      This four star hotel is one of the best hotels in the city. Spotless and extremely pleasant, the Kong Arthur is also well-located between Norrebro train station and the trendy area of Norrebro. 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.

      • Value for money 6.84
      • Location 4.78

      The Ibsens is a typical three star Danish design hotel with lots of rooms and few facilities. People tend to stay here to sleep and for its location 10 minutes' walk away from the city centre. The rooms look great with their minimalist lines and the breakfast bar looks likes something out of a Scandinavian home design catalogue. The neon 'Hotel' sign that hangs outside matches its contemporary look. In the surroundings you will find a handful of bars and restaurants, bars and second hand shops. The Peblinge So, one of the city's rectangular lakes forming one of its canals is also close by, making for a pleasant stroll on a sunny day. The hotel's rooms vary greatly in size, so it is ideal for business people looking for a clean and trendy place to kip for the night as well as families. The hotel has been awarded the Green Key certificate for its environmental initiatives.

      • Value for money 6.64
      • Location 7.33

      This boutique hotel set up with artistic endeavour in mind has seen its hey-day and is disappointingly in dire need of a complete refurbishment. You'll find it on most hotel-booking sites under the 'charming boutique hotel' tab but don't be tempted as you may well be disappointed upon arrival. Now more of a backpackers' hangout, it isn't hard to see why. The hotel's 61 rooms are all different and have been decorated by an ensemble of 21 artists, but the creative decor hasn't been well maintained and now looks particularly shabby and unclean, which is a great shame. We'd like to thank the very skilled photographer who had the hard job of making this tacky rooms look like they are at the very height of design because they sure don't look the part in reality. Hotel Fox is ideal for those on a budget and for those who don't plan on spending very long in the city.

      • Value for money 6.84
      • Location 8.6

      The 4-star impersonal Imperial is a busy mainstream Arp-Hansen hotel situated in the city centre just next to Vesterport train station. The non-descript hotel looks tatty from the outside and is easily missed among the neighbouring office buildings. An old-fashioned hotel with newly-refurbished rooms, the hotel is suitable for families and groups. A little dull and too hectic for a relaxing stay, the Imperial is a base for exploring the city from, but not ideal if you want to spend time unwinding at the hotel. All rooms can accommodate an extra bed, which is useful if there are more than two of you per room.

      The Alexandra Hotel doesn't give away much from its non-descript exterior and is easily missed when walking past. However, it's a real boutique design gem that only the most clued-up of design-fiends would know. Completely kitted out in original 30s and 50s pieces of furniture by some of the most renowned Danish designers like the well-known Arne Jacobsen, Finn Juhl, Hans J. Wegner and Borge Mogensen, makes for an impressive impact! And we haven't even started on the Verner Panton suite! The hotel is well-suited to guests looking for an authentic stay in the Danish capital, but isn't recommended for young children.

      • Value for money 6.84
      • Location 7.95

      The First Hotel Kong Frederik is a sleek and stylish hotel with a townhouse atmosphere, situated right by Radhuspladsen in the city centre. The service is friendly and efficient and the hotel design is based on an old British library. The hotel is painted black inside and is built around a small atrium. The rooms are spacious enough for a city centre hotel and the hotel also has a gastro pub worth trying out, however try not to get an atrium-facing room as it can feel a little 'closed in' and the hotel gets very stuffy in the summer. The hotel makes for a perfect base to explore the rest of the city. This hotel is better-suited to couples than large groups due to its intimate atmosphere.

      The First Hotel Skt Petri is one of the most contemporary design hotels in the city buy doesn't it know it. Staff here is aware of the hotel's reputation and for some reason aren't as friendly or warm as staff we have come across at other hotels in the city. Otherwise the hotel looks great, despite feeling a little bit like a shopping centre complete with escalators at the front door. Its location just behind the university library is however a lovely area to explore with lots of trendy bars, restaurants and shops. The hotel is well-suited to guests who are looking for a design hotel without an intimate atmosphere.

      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.

      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 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.

      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.

      Located in Islands Brygge, this is an impressive and different concept that provides a great escape from the madding crowds. STAY Copenhagen is a residential concept and the large stylish monochrome loft apartments on offer are one of the best bets in the city accommodation-wise if you don't want to be surrounded by tourist traps and you're looking for some of that minimalist Danish design. The hotel often welcomes celebrity guests looking for a low-key hideout in the city. Guests are given all the intimacy they wish but friendly and efficient staff is at hand to provide them with anything they wish. The views through the floor to ceiling, wall to wall, windows, of the lakes and the city on the opposite bank are the highlight. STAY Copenhagen is an über-contemporary and chic alternative to an average hotel room, where we felt right at home despite the size of each flat.
