Hotel Phoenix – stay in the centre of Copenhagen
Recently I had the opportunity (and pleasure) to be a tourist in my own city – complete with a night at a hotel (in fact it was on my wedding night, but that’s enough about me. Let’s make it about the hotel instead!). My boyfriend – sorry, husband now! – and I stayed at Hotel Phoenix in Bredgade; Situated in the centre of Copenhagen, near historic buildings in Frederiksstaden and beer drinking tourists in Nyhavn, you have everything within reach.
We arrived late in the afternoon and after a browse in the quite grand marble-y lobby sporting a small fountain in the middle just below a skylight and plump, soft furniture oozing quality, we checked in and took our bags to our room on the third floor. The room wasn’t spacious, but it was light, seeing as it was overlooking a small and charming rooftop terrace. The furniture consisted of a desk, a comfy chair and a king size bed as soft as butter, clouds and cotton wool. The en-suite bathroom had a tub and a rain shower – and enough space to not feel cramped. You don’t hear me complaining!
Up close and personal
As the day of our arrival was one of the first warm days of spring, we didn’t hesitate to go on a walk in our beloved capital, and even though I’m quite content with where we live every day, there’s just something about gliding majestically out of one of the buildings in the innermost Copenhagen. I could get used to that.
As we had other arrangements, we didn’t get to try the hotel’s breakfast. In fact, we just stayed the night and didn’t get to try much else than the shower (good!), the bed (soft) and the TV (fine. Except for the fact that it was airing “Poseidon”. Which I don’t think we’ll be able to blame on the hotel, even though the bad acting now has burned itself onto my corneas). Another time I’d love to come back and spend a bit more time there. Try out the restaurant – and luxuriate on the rooftop terrace, perhaps. Next time I get married perhaps?! (Just kidding!!!)
