My husband and I just returned from a Denmark/France trip on occasion of a friend's wedding in Denmark. For comparative purposes, we stayed 2 nights at the Nimb; 2 nights at Bromoelle Kro in Denmark, site of the wedding; 4 nights at Hostellerie de Plaisance in St. Emilion, France; and 2 nights at the Hotel de Vendome in Paris.
We absolutely loved the Nimb. I had reservations since there's no A/C and I'm always hot, but the cooler September temps and open windows late at night let me peacefully sleep. The hotel is an unusual design on the exterior, but the interior is quintessentially Danish design with a nice mixture of clean modern lines and comfort. Our Room 12 was very nice, a junior suite with a wonderfully comfortable bed and lovely sitting area, as well as a sizable bath. The shower did tend to leak water out a bit onto the smooth bath floor, but otherwise we found the room amenities to be excellent. We had a fantastic view looking right out into Tivoli.
Some have complained about noise from Tivoli. Except for our Friday night stay, we didn't have any problems as we didn't retire until 11 pm or so after the park had closed down. On Friday night, though, there was a HUGE concert right outside our room--even with the windows closed, it was noticeable. For us, however, it was quite impressive and very entertaining--something of a classic Copenhagen experience, getting very nice seats to a Danish pop musical performance (even though we had no idea who was performing!). By midnight, the show was over and the noise wasn't an issue. And then we went to bed!
We also had dinner at Restaurant Herman in the hotel with another friend. We had tried unsuccessfully to secure a reservation months before at the famous Noma, so we settled on Herman based on Danish friends' recommendations. Wow, what a pleasant surprise. Herman was fantastic. We had a VERY good meal, one that certainly surpassed our expectations even with its Michelin star. We HIGHLY recommend it...and would gladly dine there again were we back in Copenhagen. The pre-fixe menu (we chose 4 courses) (with the finest wine pairings) was extraordinary, and the presentation was about as unique and impressive as any meal we've ever had. I normally don't even eat some of the items on the menu (such as oysters), but they were prepare/incorporated in such a way that I found them delicious. My licorice dessert of some sort looked quite unusual, but paired with the matched Sauternes was one of the most amazing desserts I've ever had. I will never forget it.
We would absolutely stay at the Nimb should our travels ever bring us back to Copenhagen. Service was first-rate, and the hotel matched expectations as if we were staying at any top drawer 5 star boutique property in any major city worldwide. (I don't use spas, it should be noted, so that could be an issue for others!) Bravo, Nimb!
