From the exterior, the hotel goes pretty much unnoticed unless you know what you are looking for. With its white arabesque wall, it looks like it is part of the bakery next door. This adds to its exclusive atmosphere however. Inside the cool lobby, the traffic and the crowds fall away to the soothing atmosphere. A veritable bubble of elegant luxury, the Nimb is without doubt our top hotel in Copenhagen, which we have scoured from top to bottom to find out what the best place to stay is. Nimb has it all: history, location, authentictity, style, flair, atmosphere, good food, a spa and a smashing bar - what more could you wish for when staying in the capital of cool? Upstairs from the reception area is the bar, situated in what used to be the hotel ballroom when it first opened by the Nimb family in 1909, which is also when the building dates back to. The Nimb family were actually renowned for some of the best restaurants of Tivoli Gardens from 1887. The family took over the hotel in 1909 until it was sold to Tivoli in 2008 when it underwent a complete renovation. It used to be the high society's usual hangout, especially during the First World War. The new owners decided to keep the upscale standard of the hotel and also to retain its original style in the renovation; for example the Moorish facade has stayed the same since it was built. Although not tangible, it is this kind of detail linked to history that gives the hotel the edge that has been maintained extremely well throughout the work to bring it into the 21st Century. The jewel in the crown however, is the Nimb bar. A spectacular space that used to be the hotel's ballroomhas been transformed in a way that is contemporary, but that brings out its authentic features recalling its long history. The bar is a cosy space complete with chandelier and designer furniture, but its understated style keeps it from falling in the arrogant category.
On the ground floor, you will find the main restaurant, the French style brasserie-come-bistrot, and the hotel's signature Michelin starred restaurant, Herman's. The hotel also has a third restaurant just next door to the bakery which can only be accessed from the street; the Nimb steakhouse, which is also worth checking out if you have the budget.
