The striking neoclassical façade of this central Copenhagen hotel hides a chic interior. Here, bold colour splashes and vibrant floral prints are offset by elegant furnishings. It’s all perfectly poised to explore the Danish capital, after you’ve made the most of the fantastic breakfast buffet, of course.
You’ll begin each day with a superb breakfast buffet. And, with a promise of at least ten different kinds of bread, you know you’re in for a treat. There’s also everything from fruits and juices to just-baked pastries, marmalades and a varied selection of cheeses. It’s all washed down with freshly brewed coffee and a curated selection of teas. Then, for lunch and dinner, you’ll have all of Copenhagen’s superb dining scene on your doorstep.
While the Absalon’s exterior is decidedly classical, its interiors mix in plenty of the contemporary. Expect stucco ceilings, wide-striped curtains and floral-print fabrics. Even the wallpapers are from the Designers Guild. In terms of views, upper-floor options gaze out across the Copenhagen skyline, while those on the lower floors look out to a peaceful interior courtyard or the street’s capital-city buzz. There’s also a choice of layouts, with suite upgrades adding in the likes of marble bathrooms and generous living spaces.
Given the hotel’s excellent location, you’ll want to head out and explore. The historic amusements of Tivoli Gardens and grand heritage of the City Hall Square are both only minutes away – less if you make like a Dane and borrow a bike from reception. Then, on returning, the hotel’s lively bar draws guests and locals alike to its colourful signature cocktails, fine wines and craft beers. Lastly, you’ll have the use of a loaned smartphone, enjoying complimentary internet access and international calling.
