This hotel is a little away from the busy centre of Copenhagen but this does not detract from it. It is easy to get to. Most will be arriving, probably, from the airport. Take the M2 metro to Norreport and it is just ten minutes' walk from there. Copenhagen is a very walkable city and nowhere is too far: Nyhavn and the Amalienborg Palace are just 30-35 minutes away. The hotel has been undergoing some refurbishment, it would seem, but this is by no means complete. Friends who were joining us stayed in a different part of the hotel and had modernised bathrooms with walk-in showers whereas ours was akin to that found in a Travelodge or Premier Inn: hand-held shower over a small bath with an unfortunately smelly shower curtain in a compact bathroom. Some describe this as a 'boutique hotel': I disagree. It is too large to be that. It is deceptively large in fact. However it does have a sense and feel of a boutique hotel. All the staff without exception were friendly and cheerful and nothing was any bother. The bed was supremely comfortable. The duvets supplied were not always necessary. The hotel has no air-conditioning so be warned in the summer months. A small desktop fan was provided but, whilst welcome and better than nothing, it did little to alleviate what was a difficult, sultry first night of our stay. As with most city centre hotels, storage is at a premium and we had to disarm the ironing board of its iron to create more wardrobe space. The bathroom to our room was also spatially challenged in that regard. There are USB ports for charging one's phone/laptop etc with one on each side of the bed. Sadly mine did not work which meant I had to use a plug and adaptor for charging my phone next to the bed. We did not take breakfast in the hotel (preferring to find a cafe/coffeeshop nearby) so cannot comment on its quality or other issues raised in other reviews. The area where the hotel is located is quiet but there are restaurants/bars/wine bars/cafes around. A food hall market is just five minutes away with a wide selection of food and drinks outlets where one can get something on-the-go or for a more sedentary experience. The hotel staff will make good recommendations.…
I have booked a room for my elderly parents (my father is 82 and handi caped) for a week's stay. The staff did all in their power to give us a great service. the rooms are very nice and are being cleaned every day. the bar is rich (and they have happy hour every day from 17:00-18:00 when they give a beer or wine for free. Everybody speaks fluent English and they are more than happy to assist. The morning breakfast is good, but it is better to come early because they are fully booked.
The goods: -beautiful foyer and bar area -all my staff interactions were positive, really friendly group -excellent location, walking and cycling distance to anywhere The could-be-betters: -as beautiful as the old building is, crowds are an issue when it came to check in, and the mayhem that was breakfast. Also be prepared for a wait to get the elevators, they are tiny. -speaking of breakfast, not at all worth the price, scrambled eggs were grim, give this a miss -room was fine, but little things like the lacklustre shower strength and the pillow quality took something away.
The staff were extremely helpful and the hotel overall very good for facilities including bikes to hire for cycling around the city. The room was a little small although clean and the shower very good. The breakfasts were typical Scandinavian with lots of meats and cheeses as well as vegetables rather than fruits.
I was there for a short break with my son. The hotel looks very nice and is clean and tidy. The staff is very friendly. The breakfastroom has a handy layout and enough choice for everyone. The location is good, nice near water but a bit away from the center. It was too bad there was not enough parking space near the hotel. The room was small and the bed too ( but you can book better options🙂). I still recommend this place, because of the good vibe!
All good, staff excellent, rooms excellent, food excellent. very good location for access to city amenities, shops, restaurants, train stations, tourist centers, museums, theaters,Rosenberg and other castles.
We stayed at the Hotel Kong Arthur 3 separate times over a two-week period., We were on a multi town bike tour so we started and ended our trip there. The staff is excellent and accommodating. The location was perfect for us. We walked everywhere, when not biking. Their suggestions and the little brown booklet in the room with local recommendations were very helpful. We added a two-day trip to Stockholm and they safely held our luggage so we could travel with carry-ons. The lobby and lounge area is a great place to relax and have a drink. We have three different types of rooms while. All were well furnished. Unless you are tall (I'm not), I would avoid the 5th floor suite because it is hard to see out of the windows. The 2nd-floor suite we had was large and had plenty of room for the three of us. There is no air conditioning, but the nights cool down quickly so that wasn't an issue. My husband used the spa and had an excellent massage. We would definitely stay there again. …
We had a very enjoyable time at Kong Arthur. The rooms had everything I could have asked for in a 5 star hotel and more! The breakfast was absolutely out of this world and the staff were nice and helpful. Everything was easy. We rent bikes 3 of our 7 days from Kong Arthur, and those were simple and very helpful to get around Copenhagen. In summary, it was a very fun trip.
We stayed for one night at Kong Arthur after our flight was cancelled at very short notice by the airline. We had previously been at the sister hotel (Ibsens) and had used the breakfast facilities here so knew that it was a beautiful hotel and that the staff were very welcoming. Erik, who was working at reception on the night we arrived was incredibly helpful and made sure that our stay was as comfortable as possible given our 1am arrival time. We stayed in room 118 which is a large suite at courtyard level and found it to be spacious for our party of 4 - 2 adults and 2 kids (with enough room for a large dining table and couch area as well as a huge bathroom which is a rare thing in Copenhagen). We were sad to have to check out so soon after our arrival given the travel situation but will definitely return to Copenhagen and stay again at the Kong Arthur in future. Also to add - the 'cosy hour' is a great idea - a perfect time to head back to the hotel and unwind to plan for an evening out in the city. the complimentary drink during this time was great - especially given the Danish prices.…
It was perfect the service was great, everyone was nice, and the drinks where delicious, the breakfast was one of the best I’ve ever had , there was something wrong with the safe( i forgot the code) and they immediately got to my room and fixed it. It was just pe-r-fect! I would want to stay here a 100 times more often.
