Historical Traveler Reviews 71 Nyhavn Hotel Copenhagen
Good News, Bad News
This place gets 2 stars for it's GREAT location gets 0 stars for the rooms. The good news is that this hotel is located on a pedestrian street lined with cafes and bars and also central to absolutely everything. There are times when the area goes crazy, especially when the footballers are in from other countries. I used to live on the same street as this place so I'll tell you that it is VERY noisy during the tourist season and oddly quiet off season. Don't expect the noise level to drop until very, very late. The bad news about this place is that it has the tiniest rooms I have ever seen, even by European standards. The inside cabin of a cruise ship seems spacious compared to the 71. Don't expect the Suites to be large either. You will literally walk into the room and the entire space is composed of the bed. There is very little foot room. The bathroom isn't much larger than an airplane bathroom with a small shower attached. The building isn't airconditioned except for the "suites" which have a tiny weak unit that cannot even cool this cell of a room. The beds aren't comfortable either and there was quite a bit of dust. All in all, you can definitely do better. By American standards this would be a poor 2 star.
This hotel is really worth the visit. Excellent service. Fantastic location. And a restaurant that offers you a gourmets menu. Agreeable prices. Highly recommendable.
Not worth the price
Just stayed at this hotel and was not at all impressed. The room was tiny and had no view whatsoever. This definitely should not be rated a 4 star hotel. There were no bathrobes and the minibar was not restocked each day. Also, the cleaning staff talked so loudly outside our room in the mornings that we couldn't sleep. Definitely not worth the price !
Hated it...not worth the money at all
Stayed here two nights, we wanted some place a bit different and quaint - however, there was no A/C, (I understand some of the rooms now have A/C) - paid for a "suite" - it was just a larger room. Not only was there no A/C, but no screens on the windows - the smells from the alley below were awful, as was the noise. We stayed on the top floor and there was no ventilation whatsoever. The mini-"fridge" stunk and was not even remotely cold. The elevator is horrible, can only fit 2 persons with 1 suitcase - it took us 4 trips to get the luggage to our room - no bellman. The breakfast buffet was nice - pricey, late to open and haughty staff, but adequate food. Our 2nd day, the hallway to our room was full of dirty linens, cleaning supplies, cleaning carts, etc., making it difficult to navigate the narrow hallway while leaving with our luggage. Save your money and go elsewhere - this is not worth it, and it is not quaint!
Fantastic Location - choose rooms with care
Have stayed here many times and in many ways this hotel is unbeatable. THe location is great - right on the old harbour with so many great restaurants around and a fantastic atmosphere year round. The hotel's own restaurant is also very good both for breakfast (fantastic) and dinner. The hotel is in a converted warehouse and is themed accordingly.
Now, you have to be clear what you want with the rooms.
The ones in the front which overlook the harbour are very small. In particular the bathrooms are the smallest I have ever encountered - more like those on a sailing yacht. I defy you to take a shower! THey are very very comfortable though - just small.
The rooms in the back are an entirely different kettle of fish. Large, with huge bathrooms and furnished very very stylishly. Great beds and linens.
So, you have to decide if you want view and small room or no view and huge room.
But, for my money its the best in Copenhagen.
Nice location but. . .
My husband and I stayed at the 71 in August 2003. The room we got when we first arrived had the following problems: No airconditioning; opening the windows meant listening to the drunken revellers right outside our window; the room was so tiny that I didn't know where to put the luggage. The 2nd day I got us moved to a room that had air-conditioning and adequate space but no view. This hotel is in a lovely location and is great if you like walking around the canals. Just be sure to request one of the newer rooms, rather than focusing on the view.
Charming, but tiny rooms
A charming little hotel on Copenhagen's harbor. The staff kindly let us check in about 8:30am (we arrived on an overnight flight), and were always extremely gracious. The room was clean and well-appointed, but extremely small--I think the photos posted must have been taken with a fisheye lens. The location is excellent, however--all the major sites are within easy walking distance.
A gem of a Small Hotel
We stayed here a few years ago, but I would hope we will get back. It was one of my favorite smaller European hotels, in a renovated spice warehouse. The location is perfect -- our window opened on the waterways for beautiful views and sights. It was a safe neighborhood with people in the evenings just up the street in the bar/restaurant row on the canal -- nice to be around other people walking. Our room was small, but spotless and charming -- the bathroom was tiny with beautiful Blue Danish tiles lining the walls. Everyone was helpful and the buffet breakfast was delicious. I would recommend this hotel highly.
I stayed at 71 Nyhavn Hotel for three nights during May 2003 and loved it. The location was excellent - near to the beautiful harbour and the famous Stroget. The room was warm, spacious and comfy and contained the best bed I think I have ever slept in apart from my one at home!! The breakfast was fantastic, and the staff were friendly I would recommend this to anyone as I would definitely go stay there again
Great location, but rooms are so-so
This hotel is lovely on the outside and in a perfect location right at the end of Nyhavn. However, we booked online through their own website and were told upon arrival that they had no record of our reservation.
The confirmation number I got from the website was not even the same as the system in the hotel. They still had space available, so we were able to get a room. The double we had was fairly small and the beds were uncomfortable. The breakfast buffet is great.

Copenhagen was just like any other big, capital city....choked with traffic. I think maybe our walking tours have spoiled us for bus tours. We spent most of the time today getting on or off the coach, or sitting in a traffic jam in the city center. But the sun was out and our relatively small group of nineteen was compatible, so it was a pleasant afternoon.

The fans would scream back and forth, and yell different cheers that everyone knew. And these cheers were constant. In fact, when København scored, the other team lit flares and threw the flares and cups of beer onto the field, really close to the goalie. In fact, there was a lot of smoke ...
