Staying at the Hotel Kong Arthur & Spa, Copenhagen

February 28, 2017

Sitting along Copenhagen’s inner lakes is the Hotel Kong Arthur which was my temporary home whilst in the city. The boutique hotel is around a 20-minute walk from the centre of Copenhagen and only a short walk from Nørreport Metro Station which has connections across the city and to the airport. Also nearby to the hotel is Torvehallerne Food Market, The Botanical Gardens and Rosenborg Castle. This meant we could get up and out early and head to these sights before they got too busy.

We arrived into Copenhagen mid-afternoon and headed straight to the hotel to check-in. The lobby was so cosy, with fireplaces, snuggly sofas and their “cosy hour” was in full swing – more on that later. Our room was on the fourth floor, directly above the entrance giving us a great view of the cobbled street and the lakes. On the second day, we awoke to a blanket of snow and it just looked so magical outside.

Our room was superior double and it was very spacious, complete with a desk and sofa. The room had a TV which actually had British channels; mostly showing The Graham Norton Show and Top Gear on repeat! Everything was clean and tidy. I loved that there was a little sign underneath the bed saying they had cleaned under there for monsters!

The breakfast was like nothing I have seen before, a traditional nordic organic buffet. All made from fresh local ingredient there was a range of cheeses, meats, breads, juices and much more. As I’m quite a fussy eater, I did struggle with taking full advantage of the buffet but luckily there was waffle maker!

I previously mentioned “Cosy Hour” which is between 5pm and 6pm where you can gather with other guests in the bar by the fire and enjoy a complimentary glass of wine. I thought that was such a lovely touch! Hotel Kong Arthur’s sister hotel Ibsens is just next door and also hosts this cosy hour.

On arrival to the hotel, we were told about the Ni’mat Spa which was downstairs and also the biggest spa in Copenhagen. Access to the spa is complimentary if you have booked via the hotel’s website or booked a Spa room. On our second night at the hotel, we decided to check out the spa for an hour and it was so unbelievably relaxing after a long day of sightseeing on our feet all day. I’ve had bad back recently too so chilling out at their water temple worked wonders.

You can book yourself in for a range of treatments ranging from massages, manicures and pedicures. The Water Temple is pretty incredible with a sauna, jacuzzi, steam room and even a cold water bucket. Visiting the spa was certainly a highlight of my stay, it was such a luxurious sanctuary. I felt like I had been transported to an exotic island, not in the middle of Copenhagen!

My stay at the Hotel Kong Arthur was absolutely lovely and I would certainly stay here again. It seems the whole world has been intrigued by the Danish way of life and this new found trend of “Hygge” and I did wonder if I would experience this cosy and warm feeling. The Hotel Kong Arthur encompassed all of this and felt like a cosy home away from home.

Prices start from 1016DK per night and you can find out more information on the hotel here. Also, check out what I got up to in Copenhagen here.

Have you been to Copenhagen before?

    This looks so nice! I went to Copenhagen last year, but we opted for an Air BnB since there were a few of us and we thought it’d be a bit more fun and sociable. If we’d known about “cosy hour,” we definitely would have opted for a hotel!
