    Like living in a Lego house


    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.

    Design, design, design !!!


    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


    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.

    Copenhagen island hotel


    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.

    Copenhagen's Hip Hotel


    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

Copenhagen Island impressive experience

by TripAdvisor Member vpmcs

Very pleased overall.

I got a good deal through expedia which more than made up for the fact that the hotel is not right in the middle (and I'm glad it wasn't actually). 20 minute stroll or 7 minute cycle (800 metres) from Tivoli Gardens along the river so it's not miles out and you don't get city centre noise. Request a river view and make use of the hotel hire bikes, but get up at 7.00 am to make sure you get one as they don't reserve them. Rooms are compact but clean and Danish design style. Not the broom cupboard that some have portrayed. AC in rooms but not required as temp was a pleasant 25 degrees for the 4 day stay.

My wife was disconcerted by the thin clear glass strip in the bathroom wall which allowed a toilet view! Solved with a strategic strip of toilet paper! Bath and shower excellent. Wireless internet signal weak, but reception provided free cable, so no problem.

Staff very friendly and informative. We used the water taxi to do the sights which leaves from the wharf outside. The service stops at 6.00pm or so, so don't plan on coming back late by boat.

Good and plentiful breakfast spread.

No room service after 11.00pm, but the large shopping centre next door had shops to buy soft drinks and snacks which we kept in the room.

Overall, a nice new clean hotel and none of the reservations I had before arrival proved a problem.

Beautiful, Modern Hotel

by TripAdvisor Member Linda_22003

We stayed here when the Copenhagen Strand lost our reservation and had nothing for us. They took responsibility, and paid for our cab over to the Copenhagen Island.

The hotel had just opened, and they gave us a room right away at nine a.m. The facility is lovely and modern, and has probably the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever encountered.

It is, as people have said, a bit of a hike to the city center, but it's a pleasant walk. You can also get the tour boat of the city from the Marriott, which is about a (long) block away. The Copenhagen Island is right next door to the Fisketorvet Shopping Center.

100% for a no show

by TripAdvisor Member Busy-TravelerGermany

Do not cancel this hotel or you pay 100% for no-show.
The hotel is new, rooms are nice, the rooms towards the street you find car noise from the busy street leading towards the downtown but have sound proof windows. The location is only good if you have a car or take cabs . They claim you can work within 10min to the downtown but I doubt that. The waterfront rooms and the view from the restaurant ( pricy but good) are really nice. I have stayed in several hotels over the years in Copenhagen and wanted to come back to this one for the second time esp. that it is new. I needed to cancel the room and I missed the cancellation policy by 2 hours and got charged 100% for the no-show even though I know that they were not overbooked or anything. The way they handled the phone call ref. this subject also makes me, a frequent business traveler , not going back.

ok hotel, not so good location

by TripAdvisor Member mrebnor

We stayed there when the hotel just opened and got a good deal. There was a lot of construction work going on while we were there, both inside and outside. The rooms were small, but with nice decor and comfortable enough. What we didn`t like was the location. It is a 20- 25 minutes walk to the central shopping and restaurant district and it is not a nice and quiet walk, so we ended up taking taxi both in the day and evening.

Not too impressed by the staff, when we were leaving they had difficulties dividing our payment. We had 3 rooms, so it shouln`t be so difficult to charge it to 3 different cards.. Staff was not so eager to help us getting taxi`s either. Hopefully this was just "beginners difficulties." Anyways, we will not be staying here again, but that is mostly due to the location.

I am booked into this hotel for mid July - is it likely to be completed in time or should I book another hotel for back-up?

Also is the location of this hotel good for the main attractions?

you shouldn´t worry in my opinion.

it looks to me like it will be finished on time.

RE: RE: Copenhagen Island Hotel


Thanks for that. It's hard to gauge progress from the other side of the world!
