71 Nyhavn Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel (although undergoing a major renovation through 2016) is situated in a prime location in Copenhagen. We booked a room for one night before departing on a Baltic cruise. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and the room was unique and reminisant of the area's history. I would recommend this hotel to anyone interested in experiencing Nyhaven and being a stones throw away from the city center and Christianshavn. **note that our room, a two level junior suite with beautiful exposed beams and floor to ceiling windows did not have a view due to the construction. We didn't mind, but I understand that others might take issue with it.

Area is absolutely perfect! However, rooms are very tiny and the housekeeping crew didn't clean our room for 3 days. We left our Do Not Disturb on the door to sleep in the morning, which was obviously a message to the housekeeping staff to not clean the room. They would leave a plastic bag of toilet paper and towels in the hall in front of the room for us...how nice. When we complained at the front desk, we were told that housekeeping leaves for the day at noon. WOW!

The area that the hotel is in is called "Newhown" although it looks in English as it should be pronounced very differently. I came here with my daughter who is actually studying in Copenhagen for the semester and wanted to stay near her apt/dorm in Nyhavn. We easily took the metro from the airport and then walked about 10-15 minutes from the metro to the hotel at the end of the street, after passing restaurants all the way down the block. The hotel was lovely. The room was Europe-smallish but adequate for our suitcases and for two of us. The queen sized bed (I was told we had a double) was fine as we had separate duvets. My daughter had mentioned that outlets in Denmark are not common so it was hard to charge up our phones, pc, etc. at the same time but we figured out it anyway. The walls are somewhat thin as I could hear talking at night (the next door neighbor had a sneezing spell) so it was a little hard to sleep, but besides that, the bed was comfy, the room was nice and the experience was fine. The hotel restaurant was hopping! We only had coffee/hot chocolate one night in the bar as there were too many restaurants in the area to stay at the hotel, but the service was good. It was a nice stay in Copenhagen.

I loved this place!!! Of all the places I've traveled, the 71 Nyhavn (pronounced "NEW-houn") Hotel is one of my all-time favorites. However, if you're a fan of luxury name brand hotels, this ain't the place for you. I stay in WAY too many of the same old, same old hotel chains in the US -- every Marriot, Hyatt. etc. in every city across the country is guaranteed to provide the exact same room layout, decor, carpeting, breakfast bar, pillows whether you're in California or Florida. The Nyhavn Hotel has its own special character. To begin with, the hotel is actually two adjacent old industrial buildings which have been renovated to retain a rustic feel, located at the very end of the Nyhavn canal -- a lively and colorful street filled with lots of wonderful restaurants, cafes, bars, and ice cream shops. Even in October, despite the cold and grey skies, the sidewalk along the canal was crowded with outdoor diners from morning to evening. You can catch a canal boat tour just a short stroll from the hotel entrance. I was in Copenhagen for a week and a half visiting my daughter, who was completing a study abroad program there, and I originally booked a single room. But when my daughter realized my hotel was within walking distance of her classes, she moved in with me. So I upgraded to a double room with a view of the channel, providing live action entertainment out our fourth floor windows 24 hours a day. The hotel staff were all delightful young professionals who spoke both Danish and English (and probably others) fluently. They managed their duties with a wonderful blend of friendly helpfulness and professional competence – even down to sending me back to the airport at the end of my stay via the metro with detailed instructions for how many zones I would need, how much it would cost, and how long it would take. (Alternatively, I was offered the opportunity to book a taxi.) During my 10-day stay, I took an overnight mini-cruise to Oslo, Norway with my daughter, and the hotel stored our luggage until our return, booking us back into a room comparable to our original when we returned. Housekeeping was immaculate. Each room had a small refrigerator, a flat screen TV, and a ground line phone. Wifi internet access was free and worked well throughout the premises, even on the upper floors. The hotel has its own restaurant, though we did not eat there. At 180 kroner (about $36), breakfast was quite expensive, but be warned – dining out in Copenhagen is very pricey everywhere. One final note—71 Nyhavn is the only hotel along the Nyhavn strip. It’s a real gem.

Room was clean, but small. Mold in shower was not pleasing.

The canal front rooms too small and it was very hot day at Copenhague, no air conditioning, moved to the new building with a/c and rooms more spacious and a/c with fixed temperature. Good beds European standard. Excellent location, great breakfast, free internet.

Nice location in centre of tourist area. Small, stuffy, unclean and poorly maintained rooms. Very expensive for what you get. Would not return again to 71 Nyhavn, would prefer a better standard but not right on the canal. One night a disco boat circled the hotel at 2:30 am for 15 mins, blasting dance music. Not good... Filthy bathroom.

tiny rooms, uncomfortably hot in the summer - no a/c, every attempt was made to up-sell, but the overall quality was terrible....

The location was great. It was right on the canal. The staff was very friendly and did what they could make the stay wonderful. Their restaurant was very good.

This was a super bed & breakfast with a great location on the canal. It was close to bus stops, canal tours, the Stroget shopping street, and many sidewalk eateries. Breakfast was scrumptuous, with both American and Danish fare. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would certainly stay there again!

We arrived late due to missed flight connection, so were tired. The hotel lobby was so inviting, so quaint yet clean. The desk clerk surprised us by upgrading us to the top floor suite at no extra cost. It was just adorable with great views in two directions. There was a loft sitting room. Plenty of room for all of our luggage we were taking on a cruise the next day. The bathroom was good size too. We relaxed in the evening with a walk along the canal, a light dinner with wine then a stop for a waffle cone less than a block from the hotel. The breakfast buffet at the hotel was expensive but looked nice. We opted for complimentary tea & coffee. The staff was very friendly & helpful. The desk clerk gave us a free local call to contact our friends at another hotel about our late arrival. Stayed there again after the cruise. It was just as nice then too.

we found the hotel charming. the location was absolutely fantastic for someone who likes good dining and people activity. Found the assigned room extremely small for what we had ordered. Upon talking to front desk we were assigned a very nice corner room. The hotel staff was extremely friendly at front desk. Maid service leaves something to be desired. oVERALL STAY WAS PLEASANT, WILL DO IT AGAIN WITH THE SAME ROOM 522 IN THE NEW BUILDING

This hotel is perfectly located for enjoying the delights of Copenhagen. We had a harbour view room and it was wonderful to look across the boats right outside the window across to the main harbour. We enjoyed dining at the many restaurants just a few metres up the road and the main attractions of Copenhagen are all within walking distance. The staff are exceptionally helpful and we would recommend this hotel to any visitors to Copenhagen

I highly recommend 71 Nyhaven Hotel. We had the most wonderful stay! The staff is so wonderful, the hotel has so much charm and character and it is in the best possible location. Nyhavn can't be beat. The hotel is right on the harbor and within walking distance of darling restaurants and a very scenic canal lined with boats. On a sunny afternoon everyone came out to have lunch and drink beer and watch the boats. It was so fun! We rented bicycles from the hotel and spent a whole day biking around Copenhagen, which is super biker friendly. You also must take the boat tour and it begins in the canal in front of the hotel. Reading some of the reviews of this hotel I noticed people were disappointed in the bathroom situation. But let me say that part of the charm of Europe is the simple bathrooms and small spaces. The shower has no pan so it drains out on the tile floor. But you quickly get used to it and it's not a big deal. Ask for a room that faces the harbor because the view is amazing! The outside of the hotel is also so cool. It is an old warehouse that use to store spices. So cool!! We could go for runs along the river right out our door. I can't say enough about our wonderful time in Copenhagen! Thank you 71 Nyhavn Hotel for a great vacation!!

When we checked in we found our room "very" small. Looking out the windows we saw only pipes. We had purchased an upgraded room with harbor view, 1-double bed and 1-single bed. (was charged and extra $30/night for this upgrade. Told front desk that this was not the type room we had confirmation for and they changed our room to a little larger with 1-double bed and harbor view. [...]

Great location right on the harbor. We have a partial view of the water, it was lovely, and right at the end of Nyhaven, which is a lively area full of restaurants, and walking distance from parks, etc. Rooms are small but cozy - we loved our room. Beams on the ceilings, comfortable bed. The bathroom also acts as shower, with drain in floor - somewhat common in Europe, didn't mind at all, was kind of fun. Highly recommend this hotel. Staff was very nice.

We very much enjoyed the hotel, particularly its location near the canal and near many local restaurants.

Great style in a great location. Nyhavn is a part of Copenhagen bustling with cafes, restaurants and street vendors. And the hotel has a boutique feel that suits the area quite well -- it's a converted warehouse that preserves the bricks on the outside but has a thoroughly modern interior including a spcacious lobby. Of course, I realize that Nyhavn is largely geared for tourists, so while the area definitely has the look of "authentic" Copenhagen, you'll be surrounded largely by foreigners. Free WiFi access which was easy to use. The rooms aren't particularly spacious, but I think that's normal for Scandinavia and the bathroom was unusually roomy.

Loved staying so close to the Nyhavn restaurants and harbor. Great location for walks and runs along the harbor and close to the walking street.

71 Nyhavn is in a great spot right on the edge of the most beautiful little canal in Copenhagen. Ask for a corner room and your views will be great. The rooms are very small and cozy. The bathroom was sort of strange in that the shower was right in the room (no separate stall or anything) and drained out below the sink at the other end. The room was slightly shabby, and the sheets weren't changed every day, but I found this to be pretty typical of all cheap to mid-range hotels in Europe. I live in an old building with crusty radiators and old paint, etc, and I don't change my sheets at home every night, so none of that bothered me at all. If you're fussy/prissy/looking for luxury and fanciness, this is not the place for you, but if you're adventurous and want to be in a great spot for walking everywhere, and can put up with something that's not a sterilized white box, you'll be quite happy. Also, the staff was incerdibly friendly and helpful (as were the Danish in general - they were SO NICE!) All in all, a good experience, and would stay again for the good price and location.

great location but not much else

BusinessTravelers

Nice location in centre of tourist area. Small, stuffy, unclean and poorly maintained rooms. Very expensive for what you get. Would not return again to 71 Nyhavn, would prefer a better standard but not right on the canal. One night a disco boat circled the hotel at 2:30 am for 15 mins, blasting dance music. Not good... Filthy bathroom.
