We stayed at Adina Apartment Hotel before and after our cruise for a total of 4 nights in June 2013.
Copenhagen is an expensive city to visit. We got a deal on Adina’s website at DKK1,450/night for a 1-bedroom apartment for our family of 3. The package included daily breakfast buffet for 3 people, and 3 admission tickets to Tivoli Gardens. That’s much cheaper than hotels in the city centre. The Tivoli or Zoo package is a good deal that’s even better than the pre-paid, non-refundable rates.
Our 1-bedroom apartment is quite spacious, even by North American standards. It includes:
- King Bed in the bedroom, and Queen Sofa Bed in Living Room (the sofa in some of the apartments can’t be turned into a bed, in that case, they can put a rollaway in the Living Room)
- Small round dining table with 4 chairs, and a desk
- The kitchen has a full size fridge, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, water kettle, stove & oven and cooking utensils
- A wall of closet space in the bedroom, and another small closet by the entrance
- Stacked up washer/dryer inside the bathroom
- The safe was way up in the bedroom closet: not a very convenient place
- Ironing board and iron
- Flat screen TV’s in Living Room and Bedroom
- Our balcony overlooks residential buildings across the parking lot
There’s no dishwashing detergent provided. A small bag of laundry powder (for one load) was available at DKK25. We bought a big box of laundry detergent at Netto Supermarket around the corner for only DKK16. Bottled water (500 ml) in the apartment costs DKK25 each. Netto sells them for DKK4.50.
We found the on-site restaurant, Otto’s, very expensive, like most other restaurants in Copenhagen. You can check out the menu on Adina’s website. Breakfast buffet is roughly CAN$30. It includes breads, pastries, cereals, fruits, yogurts, cheeses, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, pancakes, tea, coffee, juices. They can also prepare the eggs to your order at no additional charge. A cheaper breakfast option is the Lagkagehuset Bakery behind the hotel. There’s also a small Italian restaurant, Tio Mario’s, across the hotel that serves great food at a reasonable price. I have a separate review on that restaurant.
Adina is located in a quiet residential area (with also some offices around). It’s a clean and modern building. Nice courtyard with sitting area. There’s a coffee machine in the lobby (you have to pay). Wi-Fi is free in the lobby area and available in the rooms at a cost. There’s a computer in the lobby for guests’ use.
Front Desk was staffed with 1-2 employees. We found all of them to be very helpful and friendly. Housekeeping was also very prompt in responding to our requests.
Little Mermaid is 10 minutes’ walk from Adina, passing by some marinas and nice parks. From the Little Mermaid, you can continue along the waterfront to Nyhavn. It’s a scenic and leisurely walk. We took the train to Central Station one day, and walked all the way back to Adina through the Stroget, Nyhavn and some other attractions. It’s a walkable distance, but it may be tiring to do that every day.
The closest train station is Osterport. It’s 10-15 minutes’ walk along a main street with paved pedestrian sidewalks. You will see a foot bridge before you arrive at the train station. If you have tickets already, you can use the bridge as short cut to the tracks without going through the station. Otherwise, you need to go inside the station to purchase tickets. There are trains going to the Airport (transfers required) from Osterport. That’s an option if you travel light.
We had too much luggage so we took a taxi from Copenhagen Airport for DKK400 (more than usual due to rush hour traffic). For the return to the airport, it was DKK300. From Tivoli Gardens to Adina, it cost DKK140. Although Adina is the closest hotel to the cruise ship terminal (we sailed with Princess Cruise), I won’t recommend you walk there. Part of the walk is along unpaved roads, without sidewalk, and through the industrial area of the cruise terminal. It will probably take 30-45 minutes with no shades along the way. Having said that, we saw some passengers doing that, but they had fewer luggages than we did. A taxi ride cost us DKK100.
We very much enjoyed staying in this quiet neighbourhood. It’s more relaxing than the city centre yet still convenient to all the major attractions either on foot or by public transport. For us, having the luxury of a spacious apartment with kitchen and laundry facilities, and at a better room rate, is more important. If we ever go back to Copenhagen, we will definitely stay at Adina again.
