Historical Traveller Reviews of Copenhagen Admiral Hotel

Mostly good news, but some not so good

from Kingpin26
The good news? Really nice, creative architecture that saved a historic building. Medium sized rooms, but cramped because of the large old beams remaining from the original building (worth it because it compliments the design). Superb location, two blocks from Nyhaven (social hub of the city). Very nice restaurant and outside terrace. Good breakfast, well serviced. The bad news? This large hotel is very busy, sort of a tourist "factory", kids running around, noisy. The water-view rooms overlook an unattractive stack of temporary buildings and shipping containers, not very charming. Be careful in summer because the rooms have no air conditioning (essential for spoiled Americans) and poor air flow . . . uncomfortable at temps above 23C. Would I stay there again? Yes, in mild weather.

Well satisified

from Wombat1972
Stayed at the Hotel Admiral for 4 nights in August 06. There is a building site across the hotel as other readers have noted, but we found that it stopped early Friday afternoon and didn't start again until Monday, so had no complaints. We were given a room overlooking the harbour which was large, well furnished and had a comfortable bed. Bathroom was small but adequate and everything worked. We thought it was an excellent location - quiet enough to be a little out of town but within walking distance of nearly everything, from the Museums to Christiania, the Little Mermaid, Amalienborg etc The amaliehaven gardens next to the hotel are a great spot to watch the world go by and if, like us, you have a breakfast exclusive deal, try the nearby Cafe Oscar on the corner of Fredericagard for morning coffee and croissants. Only one down side - the room could have done with more airconditioning. Even with a window that opened it was very warm in summer. Otherwise, we were very happy with it.

check the room size....we were baffled

from GCDOM
Stayed here twice - once for a single night, then three days later for two nights. Hotel is in an excellent central location - right next to Nyhavn, which really buzzes with life (this can make the hotel rather noisy if you don't ask for a quiet room) - be aware you don't get the best deals on food in the Nyhavn restaurants, although they're perfectly OK; go further into town for that. And it's right on the shore for a good walk up to the parkland near Langelinie. Opposite is the new Opera House, which is very striking architecture. Both times we had a harbour view, but be aware that this isn't quite as romantic as it sounds - our view was largely of temporary portakabins and oil slicks, which isn't the hotel's fault of course. The building itself has character - the lobby is vast and has exposed beams, very striking. Check in and out friendly and efficient - excellent English spoken by staff. The breakfast was excellent and unlimited as it ought to be for an extra 115DK - hot (bacon, sausage,eggs) and cold (including some very, ummm, aromatic blue cheese which might put you off your muesli if you stand too close). The usual array of ham and cheeses, fresh citrus fruits, pineapple and watermelon, excellent range of breads and pastries, fruit compotes etc. We didn't use the bar or restaurant. The rooms were spotless - large comfortable beds, clean bathrooms with good toiletries. Well stocked minibar (as eye wateringly priced as everything else in the city, alas) and satellite TV - also wireless internet connection. The weather was very hot during our stay and aircon might have been nice, although the design of the rooms means it was never unbearable. What baffled us was that while we paid the same room rate for both short stays, the first room was half the size of the second, with fewer amenities (in the second, no 152 - leather armchairs and sofa, 2 extra tables, more wardrobe space and some very nice exposed beams as in reception; in the first, no 244 - a bed, table and chair, plus one small wardrobe in a rather functional and, for the price, pretty tiny but still very pleasant room). Both were described as deluxe rooms, but the first wasn't really. If that sort of thing bothers you a lot, check when booking. Copenhagen itself is very safe even late at night, although the area at the end of Stroget nearest Radhusplasen gets a bit lairy after 10pm. On the same street as the hotel is an excellent smorrebrod restaraunt - Bibliotek - where the food is very good and the staff charming.

Nice Experience!

from CassieC
We stayed at the Hotel Admiral for 3 nights and found the location convenient and the decor of the rooms charming. Due to the extreme heat this Summer however, and the absence of AC I would have preferred a room facing the back of the Hotel toward the water. Leaving the window open at night to get air would have been quieter.

No air con and very noisy!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at the Admiral for one night on 25th June. The Hotel itself was very nice, I liked the wooden beams. Unfortunately my opinion of the hotel changed some what when I tried to get to sleep that night. My room was by the lifts and at the front of the hotel (facing a busy road) so I was kept awake most of the night by noise from either one or the other. The noise of the road and passers by was so loud that I had to shut my window and with no air con available this left me hot and bothered. I would avoid a room near the lifts and perhaps a room away from the road would be quieter


from Gadriye
My mother and I stayed here in November 2005. We really enjoyed the hotel and Copenhagen.

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 Hotel

from BayswaterBabe
We stayed here over Easter and got a really good deal in comparison to what the other hotels were offering (£260 for four nights).

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 Copenhagen

from essjay2
The Admiral is an impressive hotel on the inside and the outside! A brilliant location, just a few minutes walk from the popular Nyhavn with its brightly coloured bars and restaurants on the waterside. The Admiral also fronts onto the water where they are currently doing some building work (this prevents you from walking along the water's edge along to Nyhavn but did not disturb us with any noise during our weekend visit). I guess during the summer months you would be able to sit outside the hotel at tables and enjoy views of boats, etc.
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 hardware

from Bondosan006
I stayed for 3 nights in early November this year in a small suite on the top floor. On entry, the room was impressive. The bed was on a mezzanine floor within the room, there were old beams and pillars which blended well with the modern Scandinavian decor. The view out of the windows was wonderful as well.

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 Admiral

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at Copenhagen Admiral Hotel for 2 nights during my visit to Copenhagen in late November 2005. I only stayed for 2 nights and my company used the hotel to host a conference.

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.)
