OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The hotel sits on Copenhagen's busiest road but new windows provide effective soundproofing when closed. It's conveniently central: the train station is a few minutes' walk away and the town hall square (with the metro station) is just across the road, leading to the main pedestrianised shopping street on the far side. The rides and restaurants of Tivoli are a short walk away, and nearby Trio serves up quality cocktails in its ninth-floor bar.

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 295 per day. Book flights to Copenhagen.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The retro styling is immediately obvious the moment you step into the lobby and find a lounge area filled with assorted vintage sofas and chairs. There are posters of classic furniture on the walls, shelves of design books to browse and an old turntable complete with suitably retro LPs that you're welcome to play.

THE FACILITIES

Reception can arrange bike hire or sell entrance tickets to Louisiana and the Danish Design Centre, and there's a free hotel app with guides on where to go in Copenhagen. Glass cabinets in the lounge display an interesting selection of items for sale, including miniature chairs and classic wooden toys.

FOOD AND DRINK

The hotel doesn't have its own restaurant but it's linked, via a door in reception, to next-door Ø12, where a buffet breakfast is served, featuring all the usual suspects (cold cuts, fruits, yoghurts, granola, pastries, etc). If you've booked a room-only stay, there are plenty of other places to breakfast nearby, too.
