As the name indicates, 71 Nyhavn Hotel is a hotel in Nyhavn, Copenhagen, with an attractive design and surprisingly quiet location. 71 Nyhavn Hotel is located in two recently renovated warehouse buildings from the early 1800s, at the end of the street with a view of the Nyhavn Canal and Nyhavn itself.
The unique design, the ultra-comfortable bed, the ultra-fast Wi-Fi, a modern bathroom, the view (photo above) and Karmameju products are some of the reasons my room made a great impression on me. I found the service at the reception to be great, service-minded and friendly. A late check-out was no problem, as well as getting new items in the complimentary mini-bar on the second day of my stay. One of the things I don’t think many people think about when selecting a hotel in Europe is air quality, and I am sure it’s a lot better in a quiet location than on a heavily trafficked road. Finally, the last impression of a stay, the breakfast is worth mentioning. It has a nice selection of high-quality food including some certified organic products.

For the reasons listed in this article, I would say 71 Nyhavn Hotel would be one of my personal favourite hotels to stay in the Danish capital. It is highly recommended for discerning travellers and made me think of world-class hotels like the Greenwich Hotel in New York and Ett Hem in Stockholm. It’s that good!
