Reasons for trip


“I’m sorry but you’re reservation was for one room on 18th June”. It was now July18th and four of us were trying to check into two rooms for two nights at the boutique Andersen Hotel, Copenhagen..

Fortunately, my printed e-mail trail confirmed my booking and two rooms were found although we were slightly put out that there wasn’t an acknowledgement of their mistake or apology. This was put right later with champagne and a discount.

As it was too early to check-in, bags were deposited in the locked luggage room and reception were asked to recommend a bar for a cooling Carlsberg. When we eventually found their suggestion, it was closed but we stumbled across a tiny organic café with rather nice bottled fruit beers and what was described on the label as a ‘lady beer’. We later discovered, that if we’d turned the opposite way of the hotel onto Halmtorvet, we’d have found an enticing range of bar-cafes with lots of outdoor seating..

The hotel’s location is ideal for Tivoli, the railway station and many other attractions. If you want to venture further afield, taxis can be rustled up within minutes.

Our brilliant deluxe room (98 on the fifth floor) was spacious with double bed, desk area and two individual chairs. As well as ample hanging space, two large, useful hooks were ideal for coats. The pink headboard and wall were in stark contrast to the simple white linen duvet, topped with a foot cover in a black and white geometric print. This was a boutique hotel and as well as metal bedside lights that twisted to suit, more traditional shaded lights hung from the ceiling. One wall, as well as other areas of the hotel, had a striking six foot black stencilled list of seemingly random capital cities e.g. Minsk and Paris. We never did learn the logic to the choice. Rooms have LED TVs, but if you’re like us, you’ll be too busy to watch TV. On our visit, the weather was exceptionally hot and as there was no AC, fans had been provided. We suspect it isn’t usually a problem.

The good-sized, white tiled bathroom with bath and over-shower had Molten Brown toiletries and a decent hairdryer. Two sky-lights provided plenty of light.

Although there’s a lift, the hotel encourages use of the stairs with treats on the landings between floors e.g. bottled water and Danish cookies.

The continental breakfast was excellent with a good choice of the usual fare: fruits, yoghurts, meats, cheese, breads and of course, Danish pastries. Coffee was served in trendy, brightly coloured flasks, but specialist coffees were available for an additional cost.

During wine hour (5pm – 6pm) you can enjoy a complimentary glass of red or white in the trendy, but comfortable reception with its predominantly vibrant pink and purple décor including Perspex regal armchairs. This is a nice way to finish your day and swap sightseeing tips with fellow guests. There’s also a small seating area for smokers in the car park at the rear. Whilst there’s not a formal bar, the helpful guys behind reception, can provide drinks on request.

Our room (including breakfast and Wi-Fi) was 1895 kroner (£120) per night.
