The Copenhagen Admiral Hotel is housed in a converted 18th century warehouse and because of this, no two rooms are alike – each have been individually developed to reflect its own characteristic ambience. However, one feature common to all of the rooms is that they capture the building’s history thanks to their characteristic 200-year old beams.
How to get to the hotel
The hotel is located in the city centre. You can either drive from the airport, take a taxi or for a cheaper option you can take the metro 5-6 stops to Kongens Nytorv, København and then it’s only a 8-9 minute walk to the hotel. It can take a little longer if you have a large bag with you as your luggage wheels may not fair well on the beautiful cobblestone sidewalks.
Arrival and check in
Once through the Main Entrance sliding doors, we were in the Ground Floor Lobby which boasted a warm, cozy and welcoming atmosphere. After marvelling in the modern, yet heritage looking lobby, we headed over to the clearly labelled reception desk and were greeted by an approachable/professional looking member of staff. Check-in took no longer than 5 minutes and it was informative, professional and very friendly.
We stayed in the Double Deluxe room with a waterview, which has recently been renovated and features 200-year-old wooden beams from the original warehouse.
The view looks over the inner harbor and the Opera House, which you can enjoy from your French balcony. The newly renovated rooms feature a queen/king size bed, seating area and table for meals, minibar and bathroom.
Trying to find a hotel room which provides a bed and bathroom amenities suitable for my 6ft4 110kg husband is nearly impossible. However, the bed and shower were the perfect size which made our stay there a lot more comfortable.
The large TV in the room was perfect for watching a movie and cuddling in bed, it also had the ability to connect your phone to the TV to watch netflix or streaming apps from your phone.
The newly renovated bathroom has a wonderful waterfall shower that neither of us wanted to get out of!
There is 1 sink for him and her, which is fine with us as we are used to this at home as well as a light up makeup mirror, hair dryer and toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner and body wash.
The only annoying thing about the bathroom was that there was no place but the floor to put our body wash or shampoo and conditioner.
Food and Drink options
Breakfast buffet is served in the Salt Restaurant between 6:30am and 10:00am on weekdays or 7am to 10:30am on weekends. There is a large range on offer from hot foods such as bacon and eggs, to salad, fruit, pastries and and yoghurts. Fresh juice and coffee and tea are also available.
Room service is available from 12am until 10:45pm with menu options from the Salt restaurant. We ordered a few burgers and while they were really delicious, I found them to be fairly expensive at around $29aud per burger.
Sadly we didn’t get an opportunity to try the Salt Restaurant however we were able to grab a quick cocktail at the bar. When we arrived at the bar, it was packed with people but we were surprisingly served fairly quickly and our cocktails were served promptly.
Around the hotel
The Admiral Hotel is located in Copenhagen city center. From the hotel you can see the Opera House, the Royal Playhouse and the inner harbour.
The Royal Palace, Amalienborg Palace, and the Amaliehaven gardens are less than a minute away while the Little Mermaid and the Gefion Fountain are both just a short walk along the waterfront.
I loved the Admiral Hotel, it was in a great location, close to the train station we arrived and departed in and close to a lot of popular tourist attractions. But what i loved most of all was how well the old warehouse was integrated into the modern rooms, lobby and bar areas with the large wooden paneling.
