The Copenhagen Admiral looks a lot bigger than it actually is from the outset. An old converted warehouse, its brick exterior is full of authentic character and with the wooden sail boats docked just outside, it reminds of times past, which adds to the hotel's charm. Inside the contemporary lobby, the original features like the exposed brick, arches and beams are sure to impress and give the hotel bags of character. The long lobby is divided up into a lobby bar, reception and an area where functions are held, which is often used as a luggage room for large groups when not in use. On the canal side, the entire hotel is lined by the hotel's Salt Restaurant veranda and an attractive outdoor beach-bar style deck.
The warehouse was originally used to store grain offloaded from incoming ships in the 1780s. It was converted later in 1978, when it first opened as a hotel. There are five floors and the sixth is where you'll find the suites. In terms of facilities, there are a couple of vending machines on the way to the outdoor bar selling snacks and various toiletries. The hotel has a small wellness area (sauna and steam room, which guests can use for 50 Kroner/50 minutes). Although the converted warehouse concept looks great, the hotel atmosphere feels a lot more impersonal and more sales-oriented, as there is a fee for practically everything including the internet, than other hotels in the city.
