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.

    Location 5.18 /10

    The hotel is located close to the canal opposite Islands Brygge harbour and a 10 minute walk from Central Station. It is part of a conference complex that includes one of the city's largest conference centres, the WAKEUP Copenhagen hotel and the Tivoli. A third hotel may be in the works later on this year. There isn't much to do in the immediate surroundings which are actually quite dull, especially in the winter.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    There are 400 rooms and about seven different room categories. The rooms vary in size and colour; there are eight categories altogether: theme, family, standard, superior, executive, suite, rooms with access for disabled people and hypoallergenic. There are three themes: guard, columbine and Tivoli time. The Executive rooms, with their star pillowcases and striped duvets covers were our favourite. The family rooms all come with a comfortable sofa bed and a children's televsision channel. All have large windows letting in plenty of light. Most have lovely canal views. Superior and executive rooms have complimentary tea and coffee making facilities. All rooms have safe and flat-screen televisions. The Tivoli Garden harlequin theme is continued throughout the rooms, which have different themes (pictured). For little boys, and little girls, the columbine-themed rooms are the highlight for their Scandinavian spin on the Disney look. We particularly liked the girls' columbine rooms with the fun red tulip details around the bed's headboard and the bright green mirror frame, again, in-keeping with the Tivoli Garden theme. All the artwork that you will find at the hotel has been especially commissioned for the hotel. The double beds are all composed of two single beds put together with two single duvets as per the Scandinavian tradition. On the whole the bathrooms are well-appointed and spacious and stocked with Arp-Hansen own-brand toiletries. All bathrooms have bathtubs.

    Overview 9.70 /10

    The hotel opened in 2011 and was designed by Kim Utzen, son of Jorn Utzen, the designer of Sydney's Opera House and by Fritz Hansen, who continued Verner Panton's designs after his death. From the exterior, the Tivoli Hotel looks like somewhat of a monster-resort, which upon entering it, it truly is. If the kind of place that has absolutely everything your heart desires onsite, then this is the place for you. But don't forget to get out to explore the wonderful that is Copenhagen! This monster-hotel has everything from professionally-trained harlequin dancers from Tivoli Gardens that prance around the hotel reception, to a full-size bouncy castle, to a Swan Lake complete with Danish designer extraordinaire Arne Jacobsen Swan chairs, a closed swimming pool with LED lights embedded in the ceiling and games room in the basement, along with a gym, a bar and two restaurants. There is even a roof-top playground that was still being landscaped to look like a Japanese garden. The hotel is extremely animated and quite hectic, especially in the lobby, so it's not the best option if you want to get away from it all and spend some quality time alone with your family. The hotel could have fallen into the tacky Disneyland mould, but it has been tastefully done and therefore isn't too hard on the eye. The main restaurant is one of the highlights of the hotel for us - designed according to Verner Panton colours and style, the dining hall is an extremely pleasant area to sit down for a meal and it links to the outdoor playground area.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    The hotel has two restaurants and a bar, all of which are highlights of the hotel. The main restaurant, 'Brasserie Tivoli', adjoining the outdoor Japanese-style outdoor terrace, with outdoor seating, has been designed according to Verner Panton's style. Bright and extremely tasteful, entering the dining hall is an uplifting experience. With booths, banquettes and free seating, the room is very well appointed so that it doesn't feel too cramped at meal times. Children are also well taken care of, with their own meal choices. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served here and all meals are served as a buffet. A range of international and Danish cuisine is on offer here. The room seats about 400 people, meaning that guests shouldn't have to wait too long for a table. If you are not staying at the hotel but you want to experience the restaurant, make sure you book plenty of time in advance. For a quick snack or a drink, there is the stunning Tivoli bar with its arabesque of mirrors and low-lighting. A must if you are staying at the hotel. For something a little more exclusive, the Sky Lounge, Sticks'n'Sushi on the 12th floor is a good option. The staff is casual, yet upbeat and very efficient. The sushi platters are extremely well-presented and very tasty. Here you will find a range of sushi for all tastes, from the more bland to the more adventurous and authentic. Guests have a choice between seating outside on the terrace and inside, you'll find typical floor seating. For a table here, we recommend you book well in advance, especially in the evenings as it is a popular hangout with hotel guests but also with the locals.

    To know

    As the hotel is a little out of the way - about 10 minutes' walk away - there is a free shuttle bus that takes guests to and from Tivoli Gardens in the centre of town every 9 minutes. Otherwise there is complimentary Wi-Fi internet access throughout the hotel. The hotel has its own parking facilities, which is cheaper than parking in town - 15 Kroner per hour or 120 Kroner for the day (over 8 hours) but remember that parking in the city is free at the weekends. Worth remembering if you are coming by car, is that the hotel does not guarantee parking spaces and does not take bookings for the car park.

      Wakeup Copenhagen is a good budget option for Copenhagen (the second cheapest hotel in the city at the time of writing, July 2011). This two star establishment isn't much to look at with its simple clean lines and functional rooms, but we liked the minimalist look as an effort has been made to make this budget hotel look attractive - the design also reflects Danish design quite well. It is a good base to explore the rest of the city from, and with a few more facilities, it wouldn't be a hard to pull it up into the 3 star category. The hotel is located 10 minutes' walk from Central Station and is a large non-descript structure, where there isn't anything else but a breakfast room and rooms. The hotel is ideal for groups of friends and families. If you are looking to have a romantic getaway, then we wouldn't recommend the Wakeup as it isn't the cosiest or most intimate of places to stay.

      • Location 5.7

      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!

      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.

      • 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.

      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.

      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.

      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 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.

      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 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.

It is immediately recognisable due to its original brick tower and its grand facade.

      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.
