Amager Boulevard 70 Copenhagen, Denmark -

Amy Adejokun Section editor

The four-star art-deco and slightly outdated Radisson Blu Scandinavia is one of two hotels under the same brand in the city. The other is the Arne Jacobsen-designed hotel in the city centre. The Radisson Blu Scandinavia is more of a business hotel, but with it being a little out of the city centre, it also welcomes a range of leisure guests. The hotel wouldn't be our first choice as it fairly bland, but the rooms are spacious and suitable for families. There are also some great views over the city and a good range of restaurants onsite.

    Location 7.5 /10

    The hotel is located just across the canal near Islands Brygge, where there is a small lido on the water in summer. The area is mainly residential and very quiet, especially in the evenings. During the first ten days of July there are usually lots of free concerts in this area for the Copenhagen Jazz Festival. Otherwise you will find a handful of trendy bars and cafs, but the bulk of the action happens in the city centre on the other side of the canal. The city centre is about 15 minutes' walk. The hotel adjoins a casino; practical if you like a bit of a gamble after a long day's work or sightseeing.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    In total there are 542 rooms split into five categories: standard, business class, family, junior suite and suite. The rooms vary in style - there are six different styles: Italian, Chinese, Hi-Tech, Urban, Oriental and Maritime. We liked the fact that the hotel has tried to modernise its room styles by having the different designs, some of which are pictured. In the 'High-Tech' rooms, the decor reflects a more modern style with glass walls, graffiti and contemporary colour photography. In the urban style rooms for example, the desk chairs have a 1920s glamour girl's face printed on them and the arm chair's buttons are multicoloured. The rooms start at 13m-17m for the standard and business class rooms, and can accommodate a couple and child. Junior Suites come in next at 35-42m and accommodate four people. Family rooms are simply two interconnecting standard rooms. In terms of decor business class rooms are red and a lot more conventional. You may want to keep in mind that in Copenhagen it is common that double beds are made up of two single beds pushed together along with two single duvets, which is true to Scandinavian tradition. Something else that we liked was the views offered on the higher floors - it is possible to see over the city and its greener outskirts, which provides a nice break from the conventional city view. Otherwise all rooms have the expected mod-cons, like a flat-screen television, hairdryer, mini-bar and room service. Business class rooms have extra facilities such as access to the business lounge (included in the room rate). The bathrooms are all otherwise quite bland, but they are stocked with toiletries by Anne Semonin, as in all Radisson hotels over the world.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The hotel originally opened in 1973 and was owned by Scandinavian Airlines, as was the entire Radisson brand back then. This hotel acted mainly as an airport hotel along with the more designer Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in the city centre. The hotel has 26 floors, with all the shared areas on the ground floor and rooms in the rest. The hotel has a strong Art-Deco influence that is most obvious in the lobby. Complete with traditional marble floors, columns and abstract shapes and paintings, the hotel is far from the contemporary Danish design you may be looking for. The lobby bar, built on a varnished wooden dais is open throughout the day and serves snacks and beverages. A major advantage here at the hotel, is its range of restaurants. Whereas most hotels in the city tend to have one main restaurant, here you will find a branch of the renowned Thai, Blue Elephant, a Japanese restaurant, Kyoto, the Dining Room, as well as Mamas and Papas the hotel's main restaurant.

    The hotel adjoins a casino, which can be accessed independently as well as through the hotel. Otherwise in terms of other facilities, there is a business centre, where computers and internet can be accessed free of charge for guests. There is also a good-sized wellness centre, where guests can book a range of treatments with advance notice of at least 24 hours. The gym is free for guests and is found on the 4th floor.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The hotel has seven food and beverage outlets in total, including the Busstop Bar in the lobby; open all day for snacks and beverages, the Dining Room bar on the 25th floor and the casino bar, which you'll find just next door. There are four restaurants: the casual hotel restaurant, Mamas and papas, a branch of the upscale Thai restaurant, Blue Elephant, a Japanese restaurant, Kyoto and the evening dining option up on the last floor, the Dining Room. Mamas and Papas, managed by the hotel, looks a little drab but is lined by a bay window, making it bright and light. The Dining Room is a good option if you want to eat whilst looking over the rest of the city in the evenings.

    Breakfast is served in Mamas and Papas every morning 6:30am-10:30amand it is also open for lunch and dinner. The other three restaurants are open for dinner only.

    To know

    There are two Radisson Blu hotels in Copenhagen; apart from this one, there is the Arne Jacobsen-designed Radisson Blu Royal Hotel just across from Tivoli Gardens in the city centre. There is complimentary Wi-Fi access throughout the hotel. The hotel has designated parking, which comes at a fee. Although it may be more convenient and cheaper to park here in the week, don't forget that parking is free all over the city at weekends. The hotel has a smoking floor, so enquire about this at the time of booking.

      • Value for money 6.91
      • Location 5.29

      The 71 Nyhavn Hotel is small, cosy and charming despite it not being at the height of contemporary Danish design. Set at the very end of the touristy Nyhavn harbour, the hotel is in a prime location between the crowds and the canal, with most of its rooms offering splendid harbour views. The hotel is a small boutique affair with a restaurant and lovely canal views. The decor is a little old fashioned, although well-maintained, and may be better-suited to the older generations, although you will find a good mix of ages and nationalities here. The main advantage of the hotel is the staff friendliness and the location as everything is more-or-less within walking distance.

      The rustic maritime Copenhagen Admiral Hotel is a converted warehouse with a well-known restaurant that is also popular with the locals in the evenings. Set in prime location right on the canal in Nyhavn, the hotel boasts some lovely canal views from its rooms. It has a wide-ranging clientele mainly comprised of cruise liner tourists on a stopover, which can cause a bit of hubbub during check-in and check-out times. The converted warehouse concept looks great, but the atmosphere feels a lot more impersonal and more sales-oriented than at other smaller Copenhagen hotels.

      Walking into the 4-star Phoenix hotel is like walking into a time-warp of Louis XVI kitsch. It isn't to everyone's taste, so have a look at the photos before booking your stay. Not a designer Danish item in sight, this hotel is probably better-suited to an older generation that prefers good old fashioned wardrobes to a handful of hangers hanging off a few pegs on the wall. Location is the hotel's strong point - two minutes away from the Design Museum, it is surrounded by high-end Danish furniture design boutiques. If frills and flowers are your thing, then you'll find them in abundance here! The hotel's main clientele is made up of cruise customers on a stopover.

      The Marriott Copenhagen isn't the best hotel in the city with its bland interiors and average location , but for fans of the brand, the Marriott is suitable. Clean and conventional to its image, the advantage of the hotel is its large rooms and its lovely views over the nearby canal. Otherwise, the hotel is similar to others under the same umbrella - an impersonal atmosphere and a hectic lobby buzzing with elderly Italian and Spanish cruise tourists isn't the most appealing of atmospheres if you're looking for a bit of that sleek Copenhagen chic!

      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.

      A small charming and cosy floating hotel that doesn't have much to offer in terms of facilities, but that is ideal for a different experience of the city. This 'boat-el' is one of a kind in the city and sits immobile on the bank close to the Islands Brygge harbour. Down on the water, the hotel is ideally placed for romantic sunset views over the water and if you like the idea of sleeping over the water, then this is the place to stay. It has two floors and a beautiful sundeck, which is the highlight of the hotel. CPH Living is close to the city centre and to the quieter Islands Brygge, which makes it a great base to explore the rest of the city from.

      The colourful funky Scandic Frontis a small young contemporary hotel that is part of the largest Scandinavian hotel chain, Scandic. It is the most urban of the group, with street art works hanging in various places. The hotel is in a prime location right on the canal in Nyhaven, from where pretty much everything is accessible on foot. The area is extremely busy but if you need a quiet retreat the hotel is calm. The hotel has an urban edge to it, from the reception to the rooms. The hotel often hosts street art exhibitions in its lobby, near the washrooms downstairs and in the bar area. The water-front restaurant is a bit more neutral and welcomes a varied clientele. The Scandic Front is ideal for young couples and groups of friends.

      Hotel Twenty-Seven is one of the trendiest hotels in the Danish capital, and although it looks good, the experience was extremely disappointing, especially the crowded and low-quality breakfast. The hotel's location is one of its advantages as it is situated right in the city centre close to small winding backstreets known as the 'Marais of Copenhagen' and it is here that you will find a plethora of trendy bars and restaurants. The contemporary Twenty-Seven is ideal for those of you looking for a stylish hang-out to explore the rest of the city from. The hotel otherwise welcomes a range of guests, from families to groups and couples.

      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.

      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 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.

      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 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.

      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.

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.
