Copenhagen Island Hotel

Denmark is one of my favourite countries in the world, and the nation’s capital has a lot to offer. It’s a walkable city, and you can spend days exploring a lot of exciting attractions enjoying great food and staying comfortably. I have stayed in many hotels in Copenhagen in the past, and there is a great selection of high-quality hotels, as well as low-cost options for both budget hotels and hostels. A good option for a mid-range budget is the Copenhagen Island Hotel, where I spent a night back in August.

Copenhagen Island Hotel is a stylish 326-room hotel located on an artificial island in the city harbour of Copenhagen. Copenhagen Island Hotel is part of the Arp-Hansen hotel group, of which I have stayed in several hotels in the past. They also have two luxurious hostels, Next House and Steel House, of which Steel House is the best hostel I have stayed in in the world, although I have always chosen to stay in a private room. Copenhagen Island Hotel has a booking.com guest satisfaction rate of 8.2 and a TripAdvisor score of 4 at the time of writing this article.

My experience with Copenhagen Island Hotel started at check-in before arriving in a beautiful contemporary room. The room had a comfortable bed with a nice harbour view and a bathtub in the bathroom. Being a chain hotel with Arp-Hansen’s standards and the location are two of the main selling points of the hotel. What I like about staying in a chain hotel like Arp-Hansen is, for example, the housekeeping standards. Many independent hotels don’t get it right, and you might arrive at a hotel room where the bed and towels smell of cleaning products, which can be very unpleasant, but chain hotels like Arp-Hansen get it right. A nice ultra-comfortable bed and feeling when going to bed, as well as when getting out of the shower.

The hotel offers on-site parking at a fee or at the nearby Fisketovet parking lot. In direct comparison with other Arp-Hansen properties I have stayed in, I found the service to be better here. Copenhagen Island Hotel is categorized as a four-star hotel, is completely non-smoking, has a fitness centre with a sauna, and focuses on design and details. During my second visit, I visited the fitness centre and really enjoyed the sauna. I have been to a lot of saunas, and this is a high-quality dry sauna that was very relaxing. Copenhagen Island Hotel also offers meeting and conference rooms, all in a beautiful modern design like the rest of the hotel. Overall, I am very satisfied with Copenhagen Island Hotel and can definitely recommend it as a great place to stay in Copenhagen.
