Historical Traveler Reviews Somandshjemmet Bethel Copenhagen
Hôtel confortable, chaleureux et très bien situé
Nous avons passé 5 nuits dans cet hôtel en octobre 2006. Cet hôtel bénéficie d'une excellente situation à l'extrémité de Nyhavn. Les chambres qui font face à la rue offrent de magnifiques vues panoramiques sur le port. Le personnel est chaleureux et serviable. De plus, le petit déjeuner est assez bon et très varié. Les chambres sont moyennement grandes mais propres. Demandez donc une chambre qui fait face au port ! Fortement recommandé, je reviendrai dans cet hôtel à coup sûr lors de ma prochaine visite.
Posto accogliente e confortevole, posizione eccellente
Abbiamo soggiornato in questo hotel per 5 notti nell'ottobre 2006. L'hotel ha una posizione eccellente all'estremità di Nyhavn. Le camere che danno sulla strada hanno viste panoramiche magnifiche del porto. Il personale era cordiale e disponibile. La colazione era abbastanza buona, con tante cose tra cui scegliere. Le camere non erano enormi ma sono pulite. Chiedete una camera che dà sul porto! Consiglio vivamente questo hotel e ci tornerò senza dubbio la prossima volta che andrò a Copenhagen.
Siamo andati a Copenhagen ad agosto per un weekend in occasione del compleanno di un nostro amico. Abbiamo soggiornato all'Hotel Bethel in quanto era sul Nyhavn, il vecchio porto della città, proprio dove volevamo stare noi, e inoltre era a portata delle nostre magre tasche! L'hotel si trova in pieno centro tra bar e ristoranti; è ubicato ad angolo quindi, se ti capita la camera giusta, hai una magnifica vista del fiume. Io e il mio compagno abbiamo pagato un supplemento per una camera d'angolo e la vista era stupenda e la camera più grande. Aveva due letti singoli uniti insieme a formare un letto matrimoniale, ma soltanto un piumino singolo invece che doppio. Il bagno era grande. La camera era essenziale ma pulita, e aveva anche la TV, sfortunatamente questa era vicino al soffitto e lontanissima dal letto quindi era difficile guardarla. La colazione era inclusa nel costo della camera e consisteva in cereali, frutta, toast, affettati vari, yogurt, bevande calde e succo di frutta.
Bequem, freundlich und in einer guten Lage
Waren für 5 Nächte im Oktober 2005 in diesem Hotel. Es hat eine erstklassige Lage, am Ende von Nyhavn. Die Zimmer zur Straße hinaus haben einen tollen Panoramablick auf den Hafen. Die Angestellten sind freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Frühstück ist ziemlich gut und man hat jede Menge Auswahl. Die Zimmer sind etwas klein, aber sauber. Und das für ein Zimmer zum Hafen heraus. Sehr empfehlenswert und ich komme auch auf jeden Fall wieder.
Nur die Lage ist bemerkenswert
Tolle Lage, fasst alles ist per pedes zu erreichen und in der Nähe sind einige gute Restaurants. Die Betten sind sehr weich und manchmal kann es durch Zimmernachbarn sehr laut werden. Es herrscht praktisch kein Wasserdruck in der Dusche und es gibt nur wenig heißes Wasser. Die Dusche besteht aus einer durch einen Duschvorgang abgetrennte Ecke. Hätte ruhig etwas sauberer sein können. Wenn man allerdings die teuren Hotelpreise hier beachtet, ist dies immer noch ein gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Wenn Sie aber ein komfortableres Hotel wünschen, müssen Sie schon mehr ausgeben. Würde nicht wiederkommen.
We went to Copenhagen in August for a friends birthday weekend. We stayed at the Hotel Bethel as it was on Nyhavn, where we wanted to stay and was within our budget of not a lot!
It was located right in the middle amongst the bars and restaurants. The hotel is on a corner so you get a brilliant view of the river if you get the right room. My partner and I paid extra for a corner room so the view was brilliant and the room was bigger.
It had 2 single beds pushed together to make a double, but only had 2 single quilts instead of one double. There was a large en suite. The room was basic, but clean, and also had a TV, unfortunatley it was near the ceiling and miles from the bed so difficult to watch.
The breakfast was included in the room rate and consisted of cereals, fruit and toast, a selection of cold meats, fruit, yogurt and hot drinks and fruit juice.
Cosy, friendly place, excellent location
We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in October 2006. The hotel has an excellent location at the far end of Nyhavn. The street-front rooms have wonderful panoramic views of the harbour. Staff are frendly and helpful. Breakfast is quite good, as well, plenty to choose from. Rooms are moderately sized but clean. Ask for a room facing the harbour! Highly recommanded, I would definitely return here on my next stay.
Location is only positive note
Location is terrific, within walking distance of everything, near good restaurants.
Beds are extremely soft, hotel can be noisy especially with upstairs neighbors. Virtually no water pressure, and very little hot water in showers. The shower is simply a curtained off corner of the bathroom. Could be cleaner as well.
Good value considering how expensive Copenhagen hotels are, but I would spend more for a hotel that is more comfortable if that is important to you. Would not stay here again.
Great Find in an overpriced city
I can't believe more people haven't written about this hotel!! I guess maybe I was a little leery myself of booking a hotel with only one critique, but this hotel needs to get some recognition -- or maybe they are keeping the secret to themselves!
I chose this hotel partly out of desperation -- it was one of the few reasonably priced hotels in Copenhagen. Then I saw that (with the right room), it looked right across Nyhavn Harbor at those multicolored buildings you always see in Copenhagen travel advertisements.
Well, after my stay I wasn't disappointed at all. I had a larger corner room with a great view. The location is pretty good too, with only a 7-10 minute walk to the Stroget and an important mass transit hub (Kingens Nytov). The rooms was clean, internet was available, and the breakfast was good.
If these was a very slight negative, it was that the desk staff was not as helpful and attentive (professional) as those at the first three hotels I stayed at on our trip. Sometimes the desk attendant was on the phone talking to a friend when we had a question, and information regarding various sites was not as forthcoming as it was from the truly excellent staffs I encountered earlier in our trip. Nevertheless, they were friendly and competent. I had gotten used to "excellent," and this staff was just "good."
Copenhagen is a tough place to find reasonably priced lodging, and this small hotel is a welcome oasis in a desert of overpriced everything!!
Nice hotel, excellent location
I stayed here with my wife to be in September 2004; It was our first time in Copenhagen and we were very pleased with our choice of hotel. It was typically Scandinavian, very clean and simple; it was also an old Sailors haunt and a few touches show this.
I am surprised that this hotel has not had a review before; it was highly recommend in one of the favoured guide books.
It has an excellent location in the very popular Nyhavn area; probably one of the best areas to stay in, with many bars and restaurents. It is also across the street from all of the bars, so there was no issues with noise etc. I would definately opt for a corner room, as you have lovely views over the harbour - it's worth the small extra cost. I don't recall eating or drinking at this hotel, so unfortunately cannot offer and advice there. One tip, Copenhagen is not cheap to eat or drink;if you are happy with just a snack, there is a little take-away just off one of the corners on the opposite side of the harbour; you can buy a really nice take-away (chinese I think or similar) and they sell beers etc from the fridge; after your purchase, go and mingle with everyone else outside one of the bars and sit on the harbour wall. At £1.50 a bottle compared to £6 a pint (no kidding) it's a bargain and as everyone stands or sits outside, you lose none of the atmosphere.

If we do this again it seems likely that another train trip through Europe will be the best option. With trains you go to the station and get on the train. With flying you go to the airport and then sit around for 2 or 3 hours. Also when we last did the train thing, if you missed one train there was usually another an hour later. Miss the plane and you are ...
... we noted that the last hop-on, hop-off bus trip to the area of Copenhagen called Christianhvan was leaving in 30 minutes. We managed to make it to the starting point in time to hop on. It lasted only 35 minutes and took us through a residential area that contains a self proclaimed enclave with its own governance in the middle of the city called Christiania or Freetown Christiania. Basically it is a commune with about 850 inhabitants ...
... would work ANYWHERE. The only choice the restaurant really had was to let us come back the next day and pay, and spoiler alert to my hundreds of blog readers for tomorrow's post, our honesty was rewarded with free pizza slices.
We got stuck in the rain on the way home, but luckily finally found a cab. Wet and tired, we all were happy to be back at the hotel and quickly went to bed.
... midst of other cyclists and cars and both were very intimidating! However, we managed to keep up and everyone walked away without any injuries. I'd call that a successful adventure!
We ate dinner at a "take-away" place just down the street from the apartment that had the best Thai food...we actually ate in so we saw how busy they were. OMG...so many people came and went, it was amazing. But after tasting the food, I could understand why--it was ...
... stop was the Tivoli gardens which had the tallest carousel in the world as well as a roller coaster that was over 100 years old. The amusement park is located in the center of town so everyone has access to it. Christopher and I rode on the giant swings which took you up high enough to get a panoramic view of the city. After that we visited the Christiansborg palace which was built by one of Denmark's greatest leaders Christian the 2nd. ...
