The Copenhagen hotel scene has come on in leaps and bounds since the Copenhagen Admiral first opened in 1978, but this is still one of the city's most popular places to stay. No wonder - it offers a winning combination of characterful interiors, restful rooms and an excellent waterfront location.

The great location is one of the Admiral's biggest selling points. It sits right on the waterfront, with the Royal Palaces around the corner and views across the harbour to the Opera House on the other side. There's a harbour ferry stop close to hand, and Kongens Nytorv metro station is a ten-minute walk away. On one side of the hotel are the many bars and restaurants of Nyhavn; on the other, a waterfront park with a photogenic fountain.

By plane: direct flights to Copenhagen from London, Manchester and Edinburgh (1 hour 45 minutes). It's a 20-minute drive to the hotel. Parking costs DKK 300 per day. Book flights to Copenhagen.

The first sight that greets you as you walk into the Admiral is an impressive replica of an 18th-century warship - one of several nods to the area's maritime heritage. The open plan reception/bar area sets the design tone, with giant timber trusses supporting the beamed ceilings and arched windows set into bare brick walls.


The reception staff can arrange bike or electric car hire, book massages in the small sixth-floor sauna and sell admission cards for a local fitness centre. There's onsite parking (first come, first served) and a couple of vending machines filled with potentially useful items, from toothpaste and deodorants to guidebooks and hand gel.
