The hotel is no longer called the Sophie Amalie. It is now called the Front. It has been completely redone in a minimalist modern style, in keeping with its new name.
The hotel was still suffering some "shake down" problems that resulted from the remodel why we were there. When these minor problems are corrected, this will be a completly modern hotel with great ammenities.
We booked the hotel under the former name at existing prices. I would guess that the price will increase when work is complete.
Unique Quality: The location, just far enough Nyhavn to escape the noise, is great. The water taxi to the Opera and beyond is just down the street around the corner.
The new Playhouse, currently under construction, is almost adjacent.
The streets between the hotel and Nyhavn have restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, etc. that are not frequented by those enjoying the atmosphere of Nyhavn. The nearby Magasin department store has a great grocery.
It is an area that can serve as a great base while in Copenhagen. The metro at Kongyns Nytorv gets you to most places and is being extended to the airport. A little planning connects with the S trains that get you everywhere including the central station.
Directions: In the Nyhavn area, near the end and a block to the north.
Unique Quality: Great Hotel in the heart of Copenhagen. Perfect central point. Near Nyhavn, Kongens Nytorv, Shopping District, Litte Mermaid, Christiansborg, Radhaus, Rundetarn, Kobenhavns Domkirke, Amalienborg (less than a block away), Frederikskirken, the Kastallet, and the Roseborg Have. We absolutely loved this hotel, parking here is very limited (4 spots altogther). Travel by bicycle and train (or taxi) while in Copenhagen.
Comfortable and clean rooms with a great location. In the city center and right on the harbor front. Do not however bring a car to park there. They have four parking spots.
Otherwise, great place. The picture shows the hotel from the front.
