Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 4.76 /10

    The hotel is located five minutes' walk from one of the city's main train stations, Norrebro. It is also conveniently five minutes away from one of the capital's trendiest bohemian areas, Norrebro, which is just across the lake. Here you will find a number of original cafés, bars and restaurants. In the warmer months there is also a lovely scene along the canal banks, including a handful of low-key floating cafes. The centre of town is 15 minutes away on foot. Central station however is a little walk away so you may want to take a bus or taxi, but do not be alarmed if the taxi picks you up with 30 Danish Kr. already on the meter - this is the norm. The Kong Arthur is close to one of its sister hotels, the Ibsen.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    The hotel has 155 rooms, 1& of which are suites. All rooms are non-smoking. The hotel can be quite strict about smoking in rooms and guests who smoke in rooms risk being charged a fine equivalent to the cost of an extra night. The rooms are fairly spacious and some of the suites are duplexes, with the bedroom upstairs. Some of the rooms have a subtle medieval theme which is most obvious in the choice of paintings hanging on the walls and subtle aspects of the furniture, while others have a more contemporary design in soft blue tones. On the whole the rooms are well-appointed and pleasant with wooden floors and plush fabrics giving the rooms a cosy atmosphere. Suites have a sofa bed on the ground floor that sleeps two. They also come with a Jacuzzi tub in the bathrooms and a separate shower. There is also a complimentary tea and coffee set. Lower-category rooms do not have tea and coffee and the bathrooms have either a traditional bath or shower. If you want to use your laptop or charge your phone whilst in bed, then make sure you charge them at the desk as there are no sockets around the bed.

    Do not be surprised to find that the double beds are often two singles put together with single duvets; this is a typical Scandinavian tradition. As the hotel is in a listed building, like most hotels in the city, there is no air-conditioning as permits to install systems are hard to come by, so the rooms can get a little hot in the summer - make sure you draw the curtains when you leave in the mornings to keep the room as cool as possible for when you get back. Every room has a safe and mini-bar, as well as a hairdryer and flat screen televisions.

    There are several categories including singles, standards, superior singles, superiors, suites and junior suites.

    Overview 9.70 /10

    The hotel is one of the best all-round hotels you will find in the city centre. Despite its decor being loosely based around a medieval theme and not being up to the über-design expectations you may have of hotels in the Danish capital, the hotel is of very good quality. Set back from the street that lines the lake, the hotel's location makes it easy to get around the city as well as exploring one of the city's trendiest areas: Norrebro, just across the bridge.

    The hotel is fresh and its grey tones are soothing. The lobby is full of sofas, giving the otherwise cold interior a cosy atmosphere. At reception the staff is extremely friendly and efficient. The reception desk runs onto a bar area for pre or post dinner drinks. The hotel is structured around a pretty courtyard with smart black rattan furniture and parasols when the sun is out. The lobby area wraps around the courtyard into a light and bright conservatory, where breakfast is served. You will also find the Hella Thorup Spa (also found in the snazzy Copenhagen Wallpaper Guide 2011), which comes complete with sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and a range of treatments where the staff use products from the renowned Ole Henriksen brand. There is also a small gym that is free for guests to use and open 24 hours.

    The hotel itself doesn't actually have its own restaurants serving lunch and dinner, but it is situated close to La Rocca (Italian), Pintxos (Basque) and Sticks and Sushi (a chain serving good quality sushi). You can access the restaurants via the hotel's backyard, which is practical on the odd occasion if you don't feel like venturing out into the rest of the city.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    Breakfast is the only meal that is actually served at the hotel, although adjoined to the courtyard, you will find three independently-run restaurants: Sticks and Sushi, La Rocca (Italian) and Pintxos (Basque). Breakfast is served in the conservatory, which although it can get very busy, is an overall pleasant experience. The breakfast is varied and the items served are of good quality. There are bacon and eggs as well as American pancakes on offer and the healthier options such as a range of muesli, yoghurts, fresh fruit and smoothies. Something to cater for just about any kind of day! Weather-allowing, guests can also have breakfast out in the courtyard to escape the din of the breakfast room. The other three restaurants are open for lunch and dinner. The hotel does not do packages that include meals here, so it can be a little on the expensive side, although for those of you who feel like taking a break from the city, the restaurants are conveniently located just next door. La Rocca has a wide (yet predictable) selection of Italian fare - everyone here is Italian, including all the waiting staff, meaning that you will be given a very warm welcome. We recommend that you book in advance if you plan on dining at La Rocca as it is very popular (it is also adjoined to the Ibsen Hotel, another Brochner Hotel). Sticks and Sushi is well-liked in the city - as it is a chain, you will find them scattered all over the city. We did not have the chance to sample Pintxos, but it looks fairly upscale and is usually fairly busy, especially in the evenings. Here you can expect mainly high-end tapas typical of the Basque region. As the hotel doesn't really have a kitchen, there is no room service.

    La Rocca is open from 12:00pm-11:00pm everyday and Pinxtos is open from 12:00pm-11:00pm and from 5:00pm on Sundays.

    To know

    Like most hotels in the city, check-in isn't until 2:00pm, but if you arrive early and your room isn't ready, you can store your luggage in the hotel's luggage room. You can leave valuables at reception behind the desk. The Kong Arthur Hotel is part of Brochner Hotels, which also includes the Ibsen, the Fox and the Danmark.

    The hotel has Wi-Fi throughout the public areas of the hotel and it is free of charge. However, in the rooms internet can only be accessed via Ethernet cable or else there is a fee for a wireless connection.

    As a four star, the hotel sometimes has personnel to help with luggage as there a couple of staircases before accessing the lift. However sometimes they are not available, so don't be too surprised if you have to carry your own luggage to your room.

      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.

      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.

      • 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.

      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.

      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 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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.
