Housed in two former spice warehouses, built in 1804, 71 Nyhavn is located on the corner of the harbour and the Nyhavn Canal, and the views across the port are fantastic.
There are 150 rooms and suites at 71 Nyhavn, all with complimentary Wi-Fi and many with great views over the water.
There is a restaurant and bar, yet 71 Nyhavn's central position means guests are always close to one of Copenhagen's top restaurants such as Noma and plenty of others that serve equally delicious food (and don't need to be booked a year in advance).
Amalienborg Palace is practically next door, and Rosenborg Castle is just a short walk away. There are many other sights nearby, and the hotel's concierge will be happy to help guests arrange tours.
Why We Love It
71 Nyhavn's concierge are extremely helpful and will be happy to book tours or just point guests in the right direction.
Occupying an impressive mansion dating from 1755, this five-star hotel is a Copenhagen landmark. Now reopened after an extensive refurbishment, the hotel is set to regain its title as Copenhagen's most prestigious hotel.
With a superb location right in the heart of the city overlooking Kongens Nytorv (King's Square), the hotel's interiors are stylish and elegant, with the rooms and suites all decorated and furnished to a very high standard.
Facilities include the luxurious Arndal spa & fitness centre, which has an indoor swimming pool, sauna, Turkish bath, gym and a range of beauty treatments on offer. There is also a bar and 24-hour room service and the restaurant has an al fresco terrace for summer dining.
Most of Copenhagen's main attractions are within easy walking distance, including the Charlottenborg Art Gallery just across the square, and the pedestrianised shopping street, Strøget, just to the south. In winter the square in front of the hotel is converted into a skating rink.
Why We Love It
Despite its name, and to the relief of many, the elegant Restaurant d'Angleterre serves excellent Franco-Danish rather than English cuisine.
