Nice Hotel in a very nice area. Close to the shipping area.
We had a conference in the Hotel... everything was organized. Staff very friendly and supportive, clerks behind the reception excellent.
The lunch on the other day is the reason for deducting some points.

Over all: breakfast: GREAT, Rooms: NICE, Staff: PERFECT

Room Tip: Try to book a room at the 'water' side instead of the street....

This hotel is located near Nyhavn, Amalienborg, Marmorkirken and other sights. Shopping (Strøget) is also nearby.The rooms are nice and clean and the beds are excellent. The breakfast buffet is very good.
The food in the restaurant is good but not great and the wines and drinks are quite expensive.
But if you want to explore Copenhagen and eat out, this is the hotel to stay at.

This was my 5th visit to the Admiral Hotel since I started working with a Danish company last year. Everytime has been a different experience. The Admiral has an excellent location within walking distance of many of the landmarks in Copenhagen. It is about a 20 taxi ride to the airport. This time I got a room facing the water and opera house - that is the best side of the hotel because it is the most scenic. However, in the summer, it can get noisy from all the people walking by and the bar from the hotel below. The other side of the hotel faces the street and the problem there is that in summer, it is very warm in the rooms on that side.

This is a historical building that has been converted to a hotel so it does have character and very large beams in the rooms. Be careful not to run into one in the night - you will not win...

My room was a good size and the bed was firm to soft and very comfortable. The room was very hot but you can turn down the heat. There is no a/c in the rooms and when I was there in the summer, it was uncomfortable on the street side. The room was clean but could be updated. There isn't a lot to watch on tv - I know that isn't important to some but when you are a business traveler, a night just to chill in the room and watch a little tv no matter where you are is a treat. The armoire was right next to the door and I kept bumping into it when I came in the room.

The walls are thin and you can hear the people in the hall and in the rooms next door if they raise the volume up above normal conversation. The wireless is intermittant which can be really frustrating. My hair dryer stopped working and then I realized the vent was full of lent. My iPhone alarm didn't go off and my driver tried to get the front desk to call me. They refused to do it because it was 4:30 am. He insisted because I had a flight and they finally called me which was very lucky for me. Anyway, this just shows that this hotel is rather inconsistent for a hotel of this class.

The breakfast is good - there is something for everyone who eats breakfast. There is cereal, breads, cheeses, cold meats, yougart, veggies, fruits, bacon, eggs, teas, coffee, hot chocolate... I had room service from the Salt restaurant and there really isn't a lot on the menu. I had the pumpkin soup and the salad with figs and goat cheese. The pumpkin soup had shredded duck in it. It was all good.

Since this is my company's go to hotel, I will be back in the future...

Room Tip: Get a room facing the opera house - on a higher floor in the summer. In the winter it doesn't r...

Only stayed for a couple of nights on a first visit to Copenhagen. The hotel has a fantastic location, well within walking distance of most of the central part of town. Fantastic breakfast and quite a good bar. Make sure you get a room facing the harbour to get a great view of the Danish Opera House - a fantastic building the Danes are very proud of. Reception staff are all super friendly and fairly hot in an effortlessly Danish way.

Overall my only niggle is the layout of the rooms. A big plus point for this place is the history of the building, unfortunately the old warehouse has been badly converted so the bathrooms are tiny and everything just feels a little on top of each other. I woke up both mornings with a slightly fuzzy head but this may have been the Danish beer rather than the air quality.

When you are in town you should make sure you get a hot dog from one of the street vans. Brits will by now be thinking yuk BUT they are fantastic! If anyone wants to go into business with me setting them up in London let me know.

Room Tip: Go for the harbour side, a couple of floors up. Rooms with a lower number eg 101 or 403 will have a...

Checked in and were greeted by lovely helpful friendly staff who gave us two couples both an upgrade to junior suites next door to each other.

Great location. Plenty of places to eat and drink within 10 mins walk. Right near Nyhaven where all the boat tours stop.

Quite cold but all the bars provide you with blankets (much needed).

The only niggles we could say are the rooms are warm (even though its November), stair case even though quirky is very very steep, and the bathrooms are small. Beds amazingly comfy; lovely to have separate duvets.

All in all if we returned to copenhagen we'd stay here again.

First time in Copenhagen.
We absolutely loved the place and the people were very welcoming, including the staff at The Admiral Hotel.
The rooms could most definitely do with a refurb as they seemed to be stuck in 1977, for some reason.
The hotel's inhouse "Salt Restaurant" seemed to be taking it's lead from the 1970's theme set by the bedrooms. Being in beautiful Scandinavia, you would certainly expect fish and lots of it. You might not expect a starter of scallops (undercooked- I actually prefer most seafood to be slightly undercooked but these were a little bit too close to sashimi) to be served on a bed of burned pearl barley, topped with foam dressing or a main course of baked cod with parsley to be served on dry haricot & butter beans.
We didn't bother with dessert.
Having said all of that, the place does have a certain charm all of it's own and everyone who worked there was very helpful & cheerful.
Would we stay there again? Most probably not, but that's honestly just due to the other hotels in the area which we haven't tried yet.

We had a lovely stay in this beautifully renovated old building. The reception is modern and the staff were very friendly and efficient. We were able to check in quite early (12:30am). The room was cosy and had everything we needed, including conditioner (so many hotels only provide shampoo/conditioner...not the same!). The bed was especially comfortable and the fleecy blankets were a nice touch, although the room never got cold despite winter closing in outside. I loved the beams and design of the room. I would stay again.

We had not realised Copenhagen was so compact, so the hotel turned out to be more central than we had expected, which was a bonus. Also very close to the canal bars and restaurants which we thought were charming and a good place to while away the end of the afternoon.

We had drinks in the hotel bar. Somehow it is both modern and cosy. There were plenty of people but also seats and the vibe was relaxed and friendly.

My only gripe with the hotel would be the wifi. We were told the rate included wifi, but it turned out this was for 24 hours of wifi which you had to register for online. This was no problem on this occassion but if we'd be staying longer we would have needed more wifi and that would have been annoying. More importantly the connection was very weak and slow - pretty unusable. For a modern hotel these days I think this is something you need to get right and hope the Admiral brings this up to scratch.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Next door to royal residence Amalienborg Palace and just a short walk from Nyhavn, this imposing 200-year-old former granary warehouse is one of the largest hotels in the city, with 366 rooms - but don't let that put you off. It may not be boutique but big can definitely be beautiful. Beyond the two cast iron canons at the entrance is a neon-pink bar (great for a pre-dinner tipple), while guests retire to rooms showing off classic Danish touches such as teak furniture, low ceilings and original wooden beams. Best of all are the panoramas across the water towards the city's shiny Opera House and Christiania: a view fit for royalty. ... more   less
