Like living in a Lego house

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 11, 2007

The Copenhagen Island hotel is located one stop from the central station in the up-and-coming area of the docklands. It's only a couple of minutes into town on the S-Bahn, which makes up for the modern environment it sits in.

I am quite convinced that the architect had his collection of Lego bricks taken away from him as a child. As a consequence he yearned to create chunky buildings in adult life. Although assembled from more traditional materials and not a profusion of uncordinated colours (as most children's Lego buildings are) the feeling still seemed to linger.

The entrance lobby is a bright clean atrium with poncey leather chairs and glass lifts leading to the bedrooms. The rooms are well funished and stylish, but the beds are narrow and the rooms themselves lack living space. Try to get a room at the rear as the front rooms have a beautiful view of a motorway and main line railway.

Unique Quality: On the plus side, the Gym on the top floor (room key entry) looks out over the docklands area, and the breakfast in front of the wide glass frontage was superb.

Great new hotel

Copenhagen Island is a 4 star hotel which is located near the harbour of Copenhagen. The place is brand new (opened in the summer of 2006) and is a great place to stay during your visit to Copenhagen. It is not cheap but quality has a price but it is well worth your money. It is clean, well designed rooms, great view at the harbour, very good facilities, nice staff, good breakfast buffet and if you like modern architecture this is the place to stay. It is located near a S-bahn station which bring you in a few minutes to the inner city or you can walk for 15 minutes max to any place in the city centre. There is a big mall located on the right of the hotel where you can shop 'till you drop and you can park your car just in front of the hotel.

Unique Quality: Rooms are a unique Danish design. Very functional and they look awesome. Bathroom also very good and the fitness room is one to die for. Nautilus equipment, great view at the harbour, large LCD's including a remote to watch TV while you work out. Even a sauna and a place to take some steam are available and it is all for free if you are a guest of the hotel.

Directions: Harbour on the edge of the inner city centre.

Brand new at time of our visit, design a go-go, very very nice, abundant white tones inside, rooms not that much too large, no smoking.
Just to make it short :-)
Service can be improved, but we decided to forgive them cause it was just opened :-); do not count too much on bar outmeal if you wanna skip your dinner, they do serve some kind of but I still ask myself when ... give it a try !
Close to a railway station, one stop to downtown.

Unique Quality: The bar, the superb view form the restaurant and the lift (!).

A huge shopping center is just beside, when you need water you don't need to spend millions euro :-))

Modern Design, Small Beds

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

Island Hotel is a 4-star hotel about 25 minutes walk from Central Station and Tivoli. The use of the word 'Island' is rather loose as, although it is on an island in the literal sense of the word, the channel of water at the front of the hotel is somewhat narrow. The hotel has a modern design both inside and out. Our twin room was small. The beds would have been better suited for children and they had to be separated, leaving only part of each bed against the headboard. There was no safe.

Breakfast was served in a large, glass-fronted room looking out onto the river. There was a good choice.

Directions: From Central Station, head Southeast along Bernstorffsgade until you get to the river. Cross over the main road and turn right. The hotel in on the left past some office buildings.

Built April 2006.

Situated 20 minutes by walking from Tivoli.

The rooms that are looking to the sea are good, the size is good also. But the rooms looking from the other side have only windows and a view of the whole area's construction of buildings.

Unique Quality: Ultra modern, minimalistic danish design. It's 10 minutes walk to the city's number one tourist attraction for children "TIVOLI" and the city center. 5 min. walk to "The Black Diamond" Royal Library. Very quite location.

Directions: 200 meters from FISKETORVET, the city's newest shopping senter
