There is a reason why I have never taken the elevator at Andersen Hotel Copenhagen. Not because our room was only on the second floor and therefore the elevator wasn't worth it, no. It was because there was a big jar of delicious sweets waiting for me in the stairwell.
T he food tasted simply delicious! And because that was the case, I even went up one floor to find out if there was such a sweet surprise here, too. Indeed: on the way to the third floor, a colorful tin box with Danish butter cookies was waiting for me. Thus motivated and invigorated, I made my way to the fourth floor. Here I could look forward again. Not over anything edible, but over a charming, cheeky idea: "Congratulations," it said on a poster, "You have now reached the 4th floor". Smiling I made my way back. Not without taking in some snacks again.
Andersen Hotel Copenhagen: individual service
Andersen Hotel Copenhagen has something that you look for in vain in many hotels around the world: fresh ideas. This is great. It makes me feel like I am taken seriously as a hotel guest. I am not seen as a number, but as an individual. In this case: as an individual who likes to eat cookies and likes cheeky ideas. There are a manageable 73 rooms and suites in the hotel. It's easy to respond to the guests individually. The service is personal, dedicated and attentive. You can feel that the staff is genuinely concerned that every hotel guest feels at home.
Fresh design, high-quality furnishings
Fresh ideas have also been incorporated into the design: The 73 rooms have been completely renovated and furnished by the award-winning English Designers Guild. With bold, fresh colors and a tasteful, modern style. The design runs completely through the whole house. Starting from the outside facade with the flags over the stylish lobby and the breakfast room up to the rooms. Here, the focus is on high-quality, chic furnishings.
Our junior suite features Philipp Starck elements and Molton Brown products. There is a flat screen TV with German and international channels, a safe, refrigerator, kettle for tea and coffee and a kind of minibar. The WiFi is free and automatically connects to my phone and iPad. I don't have to press a single button. The fact that data flows very quickly also helps to relax here.
Excellent concept with a long tradition
With all this effort, it is no wonder that the Andersen Hotel Copenhagen has been honored with numerous awards. For example, with the national award in 2014 and 2015 in the category of "Luxury Boutique Hotel". Erna Andersen would surely be pleased with these awards. The general manager's grandmother, Karen Nedergaard, founded the Absalon Hotel Group 75 years ago. Today, the management still holds on to their values from back then: commitment, honesty and excellent service.
Advantageous location in Vesterbro
The Andersen Hotel Copenhagen fits well into the hip neighborhood of Vesterbro. The location offers many advantages: The hotel is in the heart of the city. The main train station is at the end of the street, the Meatpacking District with its wild, innovative restaurants is only a few minutes walk away (tip: the hotel staff will gladly reserve a table). There's an ATM and kiosk right outside the front door. The supermarket at the end of the street is open around the clock. Also just a stone's throw away: a bakery.
This area is home to many hotels and so it is not surprising that in the evening light girls are out to keep lonely hotel guests company – this is also Vesterbro. The central location also has the advantage that you can explore Copenhagen on foot from the hotel. It takes only a few minutes to get to City Hall Square, and about 20 to 25 minutes to Nyhavn. If you like to go a little faster, you can rent a bike from the hotel.
