“Nice location, nice stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Stopped here one night, would have liked to stop longer. We paid the extra 200 KR (about £3) for a bigger room with a harbour view and it was well worth it. You can look at the old wooden beams for ages - and in the restaurant they have marks from where they were shelled by the British fleet in the early 1800s. Room was nice and quiet, not especially large but in keeping with the building. Staff were very good. I thought the breakfast buffet was outstanding - very Danish, lots of fresh fruit, cheeses, eggs, herring, smoked salmon etc (as I don't eat meat I am not looking for bacon and sausages, so this was a very pleasant change for me). We also enjoyed a meal in the restaurant, SALT, which was good if pricey by UK standards. Then we went and sat in the outside bar where all the chairs had blankets to cosy up with if necessary. And I think "modern cosy" is a good description of this hotel.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a larger room with a harbour view

If location mean everything to you, as it does me, this hotel is perfect! EVERYTHING we wanted to do was basically within walking distance. The Royal Palaces were across the street and less than a half block away, the little mermaid statue was about a 20 minute direct walk along the water, the best restaurants were only a block away and the cruise ships were close and a cheap cab ride.

If room size matters - after all this is Europe, then go with a major brand. The rooms were VERY clean, yet average in size by European standards. We stayed here for several nights before we boarded a cruise ship for a 10 day cruise in the Baltic. Needless to say - we had some large bags with us and they took up some space in the room. The bar in the hotel was wonderful and the staff was very helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay there again.

We enjoyed several days at this hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was good, especially the breakfast buffet. The lounges were small but outdoors was by the water. The hotel was within walking distance to many shops, and restaurants, and the canal. Lots going on in the area. We arrived early, with a group of 24. Some rooms were ready some not, but they upgraded us. Rooms are small but the Danish do not waste space and are very ecologically aware and skilled. It was cooler there so did not need air conditioning. We heard from several Danes, "we like fresh air. Americans like their AC" When in "Denmark....." Would recommend you try this one!!

My wife and I stayed here for one night in July 2013, and had a lovely experience. The location of the hotel is great, right on the water and quite central, so you are in the middle of everything. It is about a 10 minute walk from the Little Mermaid, and about 20 minutes from the Castle and various shopping/commercial areas in the city. The hotel offers its guests free wifi, and has a great historic feel about it, with nautical decorations featured everywhere.

Rooms come equipped with most standard features (hairdryer, soap, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion), and a television that offers payTV movies, as well as standard local channels and a few English-speaking news channels (not that we spent any time in the hotel watching TV).

The breakfast buffet is great, with lots of variety and fresh fruit, if a bit pricey at around $25. The rates for rooms at the hotel aren't outrageous, but be sure to book well ahead of time in order to secure the best rates. Also, be sure to fully examine the final bill when you check out, as I had around $250 added to mine for a dinner that we did not consume (instead someone had put our room number down and attempted to charge their dinner to us).

Also, parking is available outside the hotel on-site, yet is also rather expensive (around $30 for 24 hours), and something one would assume to be included in the room rate.

Room Tip: Definitely try and get an ocean-view room with a balcony, as these are stunning!

These former granary buildings of the nearby harbour have been turned into a stylish and remarkable hotel. The typical scandinavian touch in the desing of the interior perfectly fits with the old structures. The restaurant is excellent, only the rooms are quite small due to the former purpose of the building. Nevertheless, an extremely pleasant experience. The Royal Palace is just two walking minutes from the hotel!

Room Tip: The rooms either face the old City centre or the harbour. With harbour view you get a terrific panor...

You'd think from the hype about Danish design that this hotel would be pretty cutting edge. On the surface, it's a lovely old converted warehouse on the quay side, in central Copenhagen, with huge pine beams and lots of stylish fittings. But wait a moment - there's no air conditioning, so the room was so stiflingly hot in summer, you had to have the window open to survive. The room was dark, because the window is small, and it looked out onto a deceptively noisy road, so you got woken up at 4.00 am because the city council think that's a great time to empty the bins, or because some louts are going home from a party. It's quite expensive. There are no safe deposit boxes for larger items of value. There was not welcome complimentary bottle of mineral water. There were no bath robes. No chocolates. No nothing, except a terribly expensive mini-bar. The beds were comfortable, but the designer sofa and chair were not. The shower was a plastic curtain over the small bath. A requested wake-up call never came. The restaurant, Salt, on the other hand, was tip top. The staff don't seem to understand the concept of two people SHARING a twin room. My name was not on the reservation, so I didn't exist, and therefore couldn't charge anything to the bill. Maddening!!Oh dear! I would love to be able to recommend this place, but I just can't. The management need to wake up to the fact that this is the 21st century, not the 1960s. Sorry, but it just is not up to the game. Everything was just too difficult for the staff to deal with, so "no" is the standard answer. Grrrrr!!

Room Tip: Ask for the quay side, rather than the entrance side, but beware, that's where the restaurant an...

Recently my wife and I took a Baltic Sea cruise for 10 days leaving out of Copenhagen. We like to arrive early to any city we are taking a tour from in case we have problems on the flights over from the U.S. We asked our travel agent for recommendations and had her book us into a hotel. She uses a group called Travel Bound (sorry, but they only work with travel agents.) The Admiral Hotel was recommended and booked after I checked TripAdvisor reviews. I suggested the Admiral Hotel to several people also taking the cruise. But they tried for reservations at that time but it seemed the hotel was full unless your agent was able to go through one of these consolidation groups. I think that the consolidation groups may be excessively active during the cruise season and book up many of the available rooms at this highly sought hotel.
After a day and half of flights we arrived at the hotel and were very pleasantly pleased. Note: Several people have mentioned taking public transportation to town from the airport. But my wife and I don’t care to drag a couple of 45-50 lb suitcases plus carry-on along cobblestone streets. We opted to take a taxi which wasn’t that expensive and we got some good advice from a very friendly and helpful taxis driver. The driver suggested several good places to eat, things to do and taking a cab from the hotel to the ship. He said that while you can walk it; save your energy and take a cab. Glad we followed his advice as it was a little longer walk then it appears on the map. Anyway, back to the hotel. The desk staff was very efficient and friendly. We got a front road facing room (369). The room while not as large so some we have been in but was adequate for a 3 day stay. The room was very clean with a comfortable bed and seating. The bathroom was clean and large enough for two of us to get ready at one time. Everything worked as it should. The bedroom area had large wooden beams on the ceiling which really gave it a nice homey feeling. It was hot, by Baltic Sea standards, when we arrived but there was no need for air conditioning. An open window provided enough fresh air to make it comfortable. We did get some road noise (minor) which slacked off as the night closed in. Having arrived after a long day and a half, we were interested in a light snack. We wondered down to the Salt Bar in the hotel. The bar staff were very friendly and after taking drink orders gave us menus. Our waiter stayed and talked a while and gave us the history of the hotel. It was once a warehouse which stored produce and other goods coming into Copenhagen off sea going ships. Salt was one of the items stored, thus the name of the hotel bar and restaurant. We settled on an order each of Fish and Chips which were excellent. My wife is from the Boston area and we have eaten lots of fish and chips in the past. We had booked breakfast with our room and got to try out the restaurant the next morning. It was a normal European buffet breakfast with just about anything you could ask for. Everything we tried was fresh and well presented.
Later that night, there was some noise in the parking lot as hotel party goers’ left the hotel but it quickly subsided. We didn’t notice much in the way of street noise the rest of our stay. Friends arrived the next morning (having left their 4-star hotel nearby) and got a room one floor below and on the harbor side. They mentioned some noise from the patio area until it closed for the night. They were blessed with a fireworks display during their first night which we heard but couldn’t see. In summary, I highly recommend the Admiral Hotel if you are planning on visiting Copenhagen. It is nicely located for access to the Nyhavn area, pedestrian walk, other Copenhagen highlights and only a stone’s throw from the cruise ship docks.

Room Tip: I think that based on our room (front road side) and the room our friends had (rear harbor side) tha...
