Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 7.25 /10

    The Twenty Seven is located on Longangstraede, which runs right next to the main square, Radhusplasden, in the city centre. The advantage is that it is right in the quaint area of trendy bars and restaurants nicknamed the 'Marais of Copenhagen' due to its small winding streets that have a similar atmosphere to the Marais in Paris. Nearby you'll find the Blues bar, Mojo, and the Huset Jazz Club. The hotel is also affiliated to the neighbouring Ice Bar by the Ice Hotel, which, if you don't have money and time to waste, should be optional on your list of things to do whilst in the city.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    There are 200 rooms kitted out in simple Scandinavian furniture that is true to contemporary yet very basic Danish design. The rooms tend to vary in shape and size but the style remains more or less the same; white walls and linen, red lacquered wardrobe, white tiled floors and a couple of brightly coloured bits of furniture like coffee tables or sofas to add a bit more interest to the space. The rooms are comfortable although we were left disappointed by a few points. The beds usually have reading lamps but one of our rooms was stripped bare of this, meaning that there was only the option of the harsh ceiling light. The windows in the room open fully, but as the courtyard is often noisy downstairs, you may be deterred from letting in some fresh air - alternatively there is air-conditioning for warmer days. The rooms do however come with complimentary earplugs, which is a bit of a giveaway about the hotel atmosphere. If you want to ensure that your nights aren't disturbed by the noise make sure you ask for a room situated on the higher floors. The beds are otherwise comfortable but are made up of the usual two single mattresses and single duvets that is a Scandinavian trend. In terms of categories there are three: standard, superior and executive. The room categories vary greatly from one another. The standard rooms are comfortable but are pretty basic, whereas the rooms of superior categories are more spacious and have a bit more quirk when it comes to the decor. All bathrooms have a slate floor, which is hard to keep black, so don't be surprised to see a chalk-like residue. All bathrooms have powerful showers - but as there is a gap between the doors, no matter how careful you are, expect to transform your bathroom into a paddling pool every time you have a shower. In terms of toiletries there is soap for hands/hair/body in a dispenser on the wall but you will find copious amounts of small bottles of body scrub and moisturiser. The bathrooms can be tiny in the standard rooms, meaning that you have to be good at doing a balancing act between toiletries, wash bags, clean clothes etc.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The Twenty Seven doesn't really have a traditional lobby, but there is a reception desk with friendly and efficient staff. Through to the left is the hotel lounge, where a dj plays most evenings (you get complimentary earplugs with the room) and where you will find furniture by Arne Jacobsen, Danish designer extraordinaire, like the Egg and Swing chairs. A dj often entertains in the evenings, attracting a young crowd of wannabes mainly comprising of hotel guests. For warmer days there is also a smart-looking terrace, complete with a small red plastic statue of a cow, black rattan furniture and white parasols. The terrace is heated on colder evenings. The terrace is also the access to the Ice Bar by the Ice Hotel. This bar is expensive to get in and so small that we were left with a bitter taste in our mouths, especially after downing an expensive sour 'cocktail' of what tasted like low-budget multivitamin fruit juice. Back through the lounge to reception, and to the right of the main hotel entrance, is the restaurant. Open for breakfast and throughout the day as a coffee bar, the restaurant is pleasant enough but gets extremely busy in the mornings, so if you like to have breakfast in peace, then this isn't the place for you. There isn't really anything else in the way of facilities.

    Food and drink 5.70 /10

    The hotel has one restaurant, which is located on the ground floor to the right of the entrance? It has a large bay window lining the entire room, meaning that the space is bright and light. The interiors are contemporary and attractive, however the experience of having breakfast here is fairly unpleasant, especially at the weekends because there isn't enough to go around; space-wise, cutlery wise and food wise. If you plan on staying here, make sure you are armed with bags of patience as you may be kept waiting a while for clean cups, food, drinks...also worth noting is that the standard of the food on offer is lower than at most hotels we stayed at. Furthermore, all hot drinks are served out of a vending machine. For the price of the rooms, which include breakfast, this was a disappointment. Otherwise, throughout the day the restaurant is open and guests can help themselves to cake and hot drinks. The cakes aren't much to write home about and don't try asking for milk to go with your coffee, tea or hot chocolate from the kitchen staff as they will probably tell you that they don't have any. Stick to water, is our advice.

    To know

    The hotel is now part of the First Hotel Group, which includes other properties like Kong Frederik, Sct Petri and First Vesterbro, which are some of the city's most stylish hotels.

      • Value for money 6.84
      • Location 7.95

      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 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 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.

      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.

      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.

      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 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.

      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.

      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.
