Historical Traveller Reviews of Copenhagen Admiral Hotel
Mostly good news, but some not so goodfrom Kingpin26
Well satisifiedfrom Wombat1972
check the room size....we were baffledfrom GCDOM
Nice Experience!from CassieC
No air con and very noisy!from A TripAdvisor Member
Beautiful stone building in great location on waterfront opposite new Opera House, round the corner from historic Nyhavn area and along the road from Amalienborg Palace.
Although our twin room was quite small, with twin beds end to end, rather than side by side, it was very nice. The beds were extremely comfortable. Bathroom excellent and well stocked with shampoo, etc. The double rooms I sneaked a look at through open doors looked bigger.
We were given a room on the waterside with an excellent view of the Opera House at no extra cost.
Superb breakfast was included in price: hot and cold buffet with just about every breakfast item you could imagine.
Would definitely stay there again.
Great Hotelfrom BayswaterBabe
Location is great - beautiful Nyhavn is around 200-250 metres away where there are plenty of good bars and restaurants. It's also only a short walk away from the little mermaid, the Royal Courts and the main shopping area. Central Station and the Tivoli are about 30 minutes walk away.
We stayed in a standard room which was very comfortable and a decent size with a sofa and coffee table, tv with a good range of channels and the usual amenities (although there was no safe in the room) and a good sized bathroom. Our room was on the second floor facing the street but we didn't hear any traffic noise.
It's a big modern hotel with character. The building is around 200 years old and the big beams and old marine-esque items really give the hotel a charm of its own. I really liked the atmosphere of the hotel being professional and smart but relaxed and not pretentious.
Staff were all friendly and checking in and out was very quick and efficient. There is a small bar with decent priced well made cocktails starting at £5.60 (most in the surrounding area start at £8+).
Would definitely stay here again.
A great choice for a visit to Copenhagenfrom essjay2
The room itself was quite spacious with a sofa and armchair and a small desk. The double bed was actually two singles but comfortable none the less. Lovely wooden furniture and huge old beams everywhere. The bathroom was clean and modern with a bath (with shower) and huge marble basin area. Take care not to touch items in the mini bar unless you want to pay for them - you will be charged automatically if you lift something out of the shelves!
Our room faced the road and had a small "balcony" where you could look out of the window (room to stand only).
breakfast is served in the SALT restaurant and offers a brilliant buffet style selection with the usual cooked english style choices as well as bread, pastries, juices, yoghurt, fruit, cereal, meats and cheeses - very good.
I would recommend this hotel but agree with other reviews that the hotel is very warm, especially in the rooms.
Great atmosphere, let down by hardwarefrom Bondosan006
A closer inspection revealed this was only skin deep. The hangers in the wardrobes were of the bog standard cheap plastic type without even curved shoulders! There was no bathrobe (which one might expect for the price), nor iron and ironing board and the room service menu was very limited.
Breakfast however was good, with an excellent selection of cold meats, cheeses, fruit, rollmops and the usual bacon and eggs. I have to say that the hotel's restaurant (called Salt) also serves an excellent dinner.
Reception staff were polite but there was a noticeable lack of warmth.
It was my first time staying in a hotel in Copenhagen, but my previous night had been spent in the Stockholm Sheraton, also in a junior suite and I am afraid that I think they are a better hotel in spite of the fact that they are part of a large chain.
Business stay at the Admiralfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel is located near the waterfront between Nyhavn and the castle of Amalienborg. We took a taxi from the airport to the hotel and I think we paid about 200-250 kroner for that. But I guess you can also take the train into the main train station and walk to the hotel but it is about 2 km to walk.
When we arrived at the hotel we were impressed by the building itself. The main building dates back to 1787 and it was originally used as a storage and drying facility for wheat. Once inside it is impossible to not notice the huge wooden structures that carries the weight of the building (I assume that that is the purpose at least) and that also creates a nice atmosphere in the hotel. In the lobby there are also models of sail ships, old canons etc and I guess that is a reminder of the hotels maritime history.
The check in was fast and I was assigned to room 347 which face Toldbodgaden. The room itself was average size with a blue carpet and neutral white walls. I got a king size bed which was quite comfortable, a small table with two leather chairs, a small desk, a TV with Norwegian, Danish, Swedish channels in addition to BBC, CNN, some Italian channels and pay TV options. There was also a mini bar with different drinks but as usual it is cheaper to buy that elsewhere. A can of Coke was 3 € (24 Danish kroner), a Heineken 4 € (32 Danish Kroner) etc. I also had two closets and quite a lot of hangers available. The bathroom was pretty small but nice with neutral tiling. The bath tub had a shower option but I don’t really like the shower curtain arrangement…but I guess it works. There were not that many amenities…shampoo, shower gel and body lotion if I’m not mistaken. As usual there was a hair dryer available on the wall.
The hotel had pretty good food. As I mention earlier we hosted a conference in the hotel and the lunch and dinner that we got was good. You get your breakfast at the restaurant called SALT. It seemed to have more or less all the stuff that you would expect from a buffet breakfast. I didn’t look that much at the options as I’m used to just having some muesli in the mornings. We also tried the SALT bar of course but when we where there they had a problem getting enough staff for the bar so we had to wait a while to get drinks. The hotel seems to be very busy as they host conferences, dinners, weddings etc.
The location of the hotel is good. It is only about 200 meters to Nyhavn so instead of dining at the hotel you can walk to Nyhavn where the restaurants and bars are located side by side. If you continue through Nyhavn you will reach Strøget which is a nice pedestrian street which offers lots of shopping.
There are a couple of drawbacks when it comes to the hotel. My room faced the street and there was a bit of traffic noise in the mornings. On the other side of the hotel I’m sure you get a very nice view of the waterfront and the new opera but you also might get some noise from the building of a new theater (Skuespilhuset) which is supposed to be finished in 2008. I didn’t have to worry about the price of the room as it was paid by the company but I think that you have to pay about 1500 Danish Kroner (200 €). Visit the homepage of the hotel for further info.
Top Local Tips for Copenhagen
Great Train Servie The central train station in Copenhagen grants you access to the fantastic train service throughout the country. Try a first class car and sit back and relax. From one end of the country to the other takes just over 5 hours and takes you through the very rural countryside of Denmark.
Wierd City Don't go for the Little Mermaid or expect wonderful sights a la Paris or even London. Walking around the city is very unremarkable to the eye with many modern buildings crushed up against the old ones, so you don't get a good view of historical buildings. There's lots of museums though if you like that sort of thing.
Trains are Tricky I had a difficult time in Copenhagen train station - the staff spoke good English and very helpful but they seem a bit too laid back about everything. The train to which I was directed did not go to to my destination and trying to understand their electronic display system is not that easy. If it helps anyone - to take the train to Hellerup you should board the one marked Helsingor! Hellerup will not be mentioned anywhere on the station concourse (although once you finally do locate your right platform the screen there might show intermediate stops if you're lucky.)
