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.

    • To know

    • The Nimb is situated right in the heart of the city in a prime spot inside Tivoli Gardens. It is located in one of the busiest areas of town, but once inside, the noise and movement ceases and falls away to the hotel's soothing colours and atmosphere. In terms of things to do, most attractions are within walking distance. The hotel is right opposite Central Station, which is directly linked to Copenhagen's main airport, Kastrup.

    • In order to maintain the standards of the hotel's bespoke service the hotel only has fourteen rooms, nine of which are suites, which allows the personnel to give the best possible tailored service to a clientele they are able to get to know more intimately than at some of the larger hotels in the city. Every room has a unique style with a cosy atmosphere that will tempt you to stay curled up on your sofa instead of exploring the wonders of Copenhagen! All the rooms are individually decorated with antique furniture, Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 10 TV, BeoSound 8 iPod docking station and BeoCom 5 telephone. The rooms (except one) also feature a fireplace with birch wood, a four poster bed with Geismar's linen and mattress, and free wireless internet. The bathrooms are spacious with double sinks and feature luxury amenities. All bathrooms are fitted with bath tubs except for room 14.The art on the walls has been hand-picked to give the room a personal touch. All of our rooms (except one) overlooks the the charming Tivoli Gardens, which is great during the Christmas season when there are concerts going on in the gardens; the rooms are ideally placed to watch the concert from the comfort of your room at no extra cost.

      There are four categories of rooms here: double, deluxe, junior suite and suite. The rooms are all absolutely dashing. With a careful eye for detail, the rooms hyave been wonderfully put together. They are also spacious, which is rare in an old-build hotel in the city centre. To see a full range of room choices, have a look on the hotel website before making your decision. Expect meticulously sanded and waxed raw wooden floor boards, satin finish aubergine or powder blue rooms dressed in the most luxurious fabrics and adorned with unique pieces of original furniture to give a very successful countryhome feel.

    • 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.

    • There are four restaurants altogether, the highlight being Herman's, the hotel's Michelin starred restaurant on the ground floor. An exclusive dining experience, guests shouldn't expect the restaurant to be brimming with the same style as the rest of the hotel - plain yet elegant, the crisp white tablecloths and shined cutlery are enough to set the scene for an exclusive dining experience. The restaurant also has exterior seating on the terrace that lines Tivoli Gardens. In the summer, eating out on the terrace at lunch is a must. With a view of the gardens, you really feel part of Copenhagen, despite the Moorish facade of the hotel building! For more casual fare, there is also the Nimb Brasserie just next door, which also has a terrace. This is where breakfast is served. Next door to the bakery the Nimb Steakhouse is a must-try. With its very masculine hunting lodge style decor, the restaurant is open until late at night (kitchen closes around 1:00am), which is great if you've partying and are feeling a tad peckish before heading back to your room. The hotel also has a well-rounded wine cellar. Drinks are served trhoughout most of the day in the hotel bar if you are after somethinga little more casual than sitting down to eat. In the evenings, the bar turns down the light really low and the atmosphere goes from bright funky bar to soft, sultry and sophisticated. The hotel also has room service that operates at the same time as the Brasserie kitchen timings.
    • The hotel has complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. When you stay here, you also have free access to Tivoli Gardens (rides are not included).

      • 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.

      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 6.5
      • 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 9.41

      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.

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 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 three star Danmark Hotel is one of the oldest hotels in the city and it shows. The entire hotel is in bad need of a refurbishment as the decor is extremely old fashioned. So if you are after a bit of old-school Denmark before Arne Jacobsen played his hand at design (so before the 1960s), then this is the place for you. Like most hotels in the Danish capital, there is no restaurant serving lunch and dinner although it does have a partnership with the establishment next door. The hotel is centrally located two minutes from Radhuspladsen from where you can walk to most places.

    • First Hotel Kong Frederik First Hotel Kong Frederik First Hotel Kong Frederik

      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 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.

      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.

      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.

      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.
