Last weekend I spent an amazing weekend in Copenhagen, staying at the incredible Admiral Hotel on the waterfront.
The hotel is impressive from the first view, with huge canons and piles of canon balls to greet you.
The interior of the hotel is unbelievable, with the biggest wooden beams on ceilings, walls, uprights...in fact everywhere. Some of these beams were more than two foot thick, anchored with massive steel plates.
My room, on the fourth floor had a magnificnt water view of the impressive Opera House, and a warship newly in port, as well as tall masted ships.
Everything I needed, and much that I didn't, was in my room...a very soft, clean bed, with ample pillows and quilts. There was a note telling me that I could ring or more pillows or blankets if I needed them.
The bathroom was spotless and spacious, with huge fluffy white towels, and, surprisingly, in this day and age, they provided shampoo, conditioner, show gel, hand cream, and soaps.
My room also had a fridge (which I did not open) a lovely leather couch and matching easy chair, a desk with writing paper, envelopes, a pen, a menu for room service, and so much more.
There were two wardrobes, and plenty of coathangers.
I made a mistake of going down to Nyhavn, to the waterfront restaurant and bars, for dinner, and I chose badly. I should have stayed at my hotel for dinner. I did go back there for a divine dessert....Lime and lemon Creme Brulee.
Breakfast was a huge spread of every imagineable breakfast food you would ever want, and it included a huge array of the lightest Danish pastries.
There are seval computers for guests to use free of charge. If you prefer, you can pay a small amount for WiFi on your own computer.
The staff were very friendly and helpful in so many ways, from posting letters, to showing how to use their computers, and advising about tours etc.
I had a wonderful weekend, and would love to return to the Admiral Hotel in Copenhagen ay time. Of course, the city itself is out of this world.
