“Best breakfast buffet ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2012

My wife and I spent five nights in this converted 18th century warehouse. We were attracted by its unusual architecture and its historic associations - for what it's worth, the 1801 Battle of Copenhagen, when Admiral Nelson pummelled the city as punishment for Danish support for Napoleon, was fought just outside. (In fact the hotel blurb says that some of the damage can still be seen, but we did not spot any.) Our room was imaginatively appointed with some of the massive wooden beams that support the structure very prominent. The room overlooked the waterfront, with the modern opera house centre-stage on the far bank. It was also very quiet, with no internal noise. The staff were exceedingly polite and helpful. We ate in the in-house restaurant, called 'Salt', on our first evening; the quality of the meal, and the service, were of the highest standard.

But in our opinion, it was in the mornings that the restaurant really excelled. The breakfast buffet was the most comprehensive I have encountered. Despite being busy - it is a very large hotel when all is said and done - tables were cleared very quickly, and a fresh insulated pot of coffee placed there in readiness for the next guests. Thus it stayed hot until I was ready for it, which is towards the end of my meal. Normally with breakfast buffets you get the coffee as soon as you sit down and it is only luke-warm by the time I get to it. As for the choice of food on offer, I would defy anyone to hanker after something not on offer. No need to spell it all out, but I would highlight the pastries - Danish of course!

One word of caution. The hotel is slightly out of the city centre. It was not a problem for us because we like to walk. The nearest sight is the famous and exceedingly pretty Nyhavn with its countless bars and restaurants overlooking a watery inlet. It is about 3 minutes away. But the main shopping district is 10-20 minutes away, the Central Station and the Tivoli Gardens about 30, as is the Little Mermaid (in the opposite direction). Public transport is efficient and frequent, once you have figured out how to pay for it. Best to get a card with 10 trips on it, or 5 trips for two people. But even then the nearest metro station or bus stops are 10 minutes away from the hotel.
Be warned if you are arriving by metro from the airport with lots of luggage!

Room Tip: View of the waterfront is the most interesting

We always read the comments at tripadvisor when choosing the hotel. The comments about Admiral differed a lot. We stayed at Admiral 2 nights at April and haven't found anything negative to say. The staff was very friendly, location great, room spacious and clean and breakfast was wonderful. The breakfast and bar were pricey, but the prices were high allover at Copenhagen.

Room Tip: You don't need to have a sea view. It was little bit ugly, to be honest. I recommend a room at u...

We spent two nights in Admiral Hotel with our baby. The room was very nice and we were fond of the interior decoration. We had a nice large room with well enough space for the crib. This was not the smallest room they offer though.

The breakfast was fabulous, one of the best we've had anywhere. In the restaurant there were high chairs for small children available.

Only bad thing considering families with small children was that in the rooms there was no way to heat water to warm up food or to make an evening porridge for the baby. How ever, this was no problem as the service at the hotel was good and we were able to heat the meals at the bar and restaurant.

Very nice room (standard room), and we had a babybed at no extra cost. The babybed was not to great, so check the bed out if you are in need of one as well..

Great brekfast, (the fee is not included) - But it's worth it!

Very good service from the staff!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Next door to royal residence Amalienborg Palace and just a short walk from Nyhavn, this imposing 200-year-old former granary warehouse is one of the largest hotels in the city, with 366 rooms - but don't let that put you off. It may not be boutique but big can definitely be beautiful. Beyond the two cast iron canons at the entrance is a neon-pink bar (great for a pre-dinner tipple), while guests retire to rooms showing off classic Danish touches such as teak furniture, low ceilings and original wooden beams. Best of all are the panoramas across the water towards the city's shiny Opera House and Christiania: a view fit for royalty. ... more   less
