Situated on one of the most iconic tourist destinations in Copenhagen, Nyhavn Port. 71 Nyhavn Hotel was once a warehouse built in 1805 and wasn’t transformed into a hotel until 1971. This Hotel combines modern renovations with its historical heritage, creating a unique ambience.
How to get to the hotel
The hotel is located in the city centre along the popular Nyhavn street. You can either drive from the airport, take a taxi or for a cheaper option you can take the metro 5 or 6 stops to Kongens Nytorv, København and then it’s only a 5 minute walk to the hotel.
Arrival and check in
The entrance of the hotel is very welcoming and given the time of year (Christmas), it’s been decorated beautifully. As soon as we walk in your are welcomed with a rush from the heater which was lovely as it was freezing cold outside!
Check in was super quick, the friendly gentleman who checked us in, spoke fondly of the area and offered to give us some restaurant recommendations and tourist must sees.
We went with the Executive Double Deluxe with a view of the Nyhavn canal. This room really features the history and heritage of the building with beams from the old warehouse incorporated into the walls and ceiling. The luxury double bed from Carpe Diem measures 180 cm so it just fits my very tall 6’4 husband and the bedding was made of some magical material that seems to warm up and stay warm throughout the night and was incredibly comfortable to sleep on.
Our little mini bar with stocked with all of our favorites such salt and vinegar chips and beer! They also offer 4 complimentary bottles of water, 2 are recommended to be used for the coffee machine to avoid lime build up in the coffee machine.
Also on offer in the room is a nespresso coffee machine with a few different types of coffee as well as a few different teas for those who prefer tea.
The entrance of the bathroom is a modern take on a traditional Japanese sliding door. The shower had a large shower head as well as a small detachable shower head, personally I prefer the large waterfall shower. The flooring in the bathroom was heated which was lovely on your feet straight after a shower.
The Karmameju toiletries left my skin feeling clean and my hair smelling incredible! It’s one of my favourite hotel toiletries brand!
Food and Drink options
Breakfast is served on the ground floor just past the bar as a buffet style. There is a large selection of hot food such as bacon, eggs sausage, tomato and mushrooms as well cold selection and pastries.
Sea By Kiin Kiin Restaurant:
This restaurant is located in the same room as the breakfast and is a the Michelin Star restaurant serving around 30 different dishes. The room service menu is also based off the same foods from the restaurant.
Around the hotel
An mentioned the hotel is located on the popular Nyhavn canal which offers a lot of little cafes and restaurants. If you want to head to the gym, just walk 800m straight down the road and turn right down Adelgade road, here you will find “Sats Fitness”. Down there road from the gym is also Netto, a local supermarket if you need to pick up any toiletries or goodies.
I love that the check out at the hotel is 12 noon! It gives you plenty of time to have a nice long sleep in and get down in time for breakfast!
I also found a few that the hotel is associated with AirLuggage, a company that will take care of your luggage either from the airport to the hotel or from the hotel to the airport at around 15 euros per bag (it gets a little cheaper the more luggage you have). You are able to wander around the city without having to drag your luggage around – this might be helpful getting to and from this hotel as the cobblestone sidewalks in Copenhagen are a bit of a killer on your luggage! I wish other hotels had this service as well as lugging your bags to and from the airport can be a pain especially if you have a late flight and have to wait at the airport for hours before the check in opens.
