Amy Adejokun Section editor

The First Hotel Vesterbro is one of three properties that are part of the stylish chain, First Hotels. One of the largest hotels in the city centre, you will find some of that sought-after Danish design, but the shared areas like the reception tend to be fairly ill-adapted to receiving a full-house, meaning you may have a long wait if you need to enquire about something at reception. Otherwise the hotel is located just a 5 minute walk away from Central Station and from Tivoli Gardens. Ideal for a range of clientele, from couples to groups of friends.

    Location 9.41 /10

    The hotel is located 5 minutes' walk away from the main train station, Central Station. You will also find Tivoli Gardens in the same square as the station. There isn't much in the immediate surroundings, but you will find a couple of average bars and restaurants. Best to explore the city a bit more instead of settling for something on this street. The best area to explore is Vesterbro, which is a left down the street after the hotel - it takes about 10 minutes to reach Istedgade and 15 minutes to reach the old meatpacking district, which is where you will find some of Copenhagen's coolest bars and restaurants.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    As some of the rooms are located along the atrium, make sure you specify that you want a street-view room if you don't like the idea of having a closed-in view or the echoes from the terrace downstairs. There are 400 rooms divided up into three categories: standard, superior and deluxe. The rooms all look the same in the way of interior decor, but the sizes vary. The rooms here are on the small side, with the largest at 23m. But as they are well-appointed, they don't feel cramped. However, it's difficult to get an extra bed in, so if you are travelling as a family, this is something you may want to consider. The rooms all have large windows letting in plenty of light and the interior is tasteful. The major disadvantage of the rooms here is that some of the rooms face the atrium, which can get quite noisy at meal times and in the evening if you want to leave the window open. Otherwise the windows are sound proof. Also, the view is closed-in and you can see into the room on the opposite side of the atrium and vice-versa, which is something you may want to think about when you book a room here. The rooms have all the mod-cons you would expect from a four-star hotel, including a flat-screen television in the higher categories and old-generation televisions in the standard rooms, Wi-Fi internet, mini-bar and air-conditioning, which isn't a given in a lot of places in the centre of town due to most of the buildings being listed and therefore hotels not acquiring permits to install air-conditioning. Bathrooms have either showers or baths and are stocked with the hotel's own-brand of toiletries.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    From the exterior the hotel looks like a small discreet hotel, but actually it is one of the largest in Copenhagen city centre with five floors and 400 rooms. At night the glass facade is lit up and the hotel's shopping centre structure glows. The hotel lobby is disappointingly small for a hotel of this size as it gets cramped very quickly, especially as there isn't enough staff to man the desk at peak times (check-in and check-out times), so guests do end up having to wait in line for a while before being seen to. The lobby bar floats in the reception area and there is free tea and coffee available. Behind the lobby you'll find the large dining hall and atrium courtyard around which the rooms are situated. The interiors are stylish although very simple. All the facilities are on the ground floor and the rest of the hotel is composed of rooms. The hotel was built in 1999 and has been well-maintained since its inauguration. There is no gym or spa here, but the hotel does have a partnership with a couple of nearby establishments. Enquire about this directly with the hotel.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The hotel has an attractive lobby bar; open from 10:00am until midnight on week nights and 1:00am on Saturdays. The bar has a happy hour between 5:00pm and 7:00pm every day. There is a decent cocktail menu, and the colourful furniture and soft furnishings makes the area extremely cosy but it lacks atmosphere. The restaurant is found to the back of reception and adjoins the atrium courtyard. Large enough, the two spaces combine cater well for the size of the hotel in high-season, so guests shouldn't have too much trouble finding a spare table at meal times. Breakfast is usually served as a buffet and lunch and dinner are la carte. Breakfast and lunch are served in the hotel bar, whereas the restaurant is only open for dinner from 6:00pm to 10:00pm Monday-Saturday. The food on offer is a mix of Italian and Danish specialities at fairly reasonable prices, but with over 600 restaurants dotted all around the city, guests tend to venture out for lunch and dinner.

      • Value for money 6.71
      • Location 9.74

      Despite its cold art-deco atmosphere, the three star Astoria Hotel is a Copenhagen landmark. Open in the 1930s, it was the city's first five-star hotel. Today the large grim concrete block of a hotel situated in the seedy surroundings of Central Station wouldn't be our first choice, but if location and budget are your two main criteria, then the Astoria is a suitable choice. The hotel is pretty basic, despite its size; it feels more like a block of rooms for rent rather than a hotel as staff presence is seldom felt apart from at reception. Slightly eerie, we quite liked the Astoria anyway for the history it represents.

      • Value for money 7.11
      • Location 9.1

      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.

      • 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.

      • Location 8.81

      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 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.

    • First Hotel Kong Frederik First Hotel Kong Frederik First Hotel Kong Frederik
      • Easyopinions 6.88
      • 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.

      • 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.

      The 4-star Palace is Hotel located right on Radhuspladsen opposite the town hall and it is a Scandic Hotels property. The hotel is an Art Nouveau landmark in the city and is a listed building. It is immediately recognisable due to its original brick tower and its grand facade. The building dates back to 1908; its history is what gives it its charm, despite the newly refurbished contemporary rooms. The Palace is the most upmarket Scandic property and is a good all-rounder. It is ideal for a range of clientele, from couples looking to have a romantic weekend away to groups of families.

      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.

      • 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.

      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 ber-contemporary and chic alternative to an average hotel room, where we felt right at home despite the size of each flat.

      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--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.
