In september, I went for a short holiday in Copenhagen with my bestie, as we badly wanted a getaway from the daily routines. I had just finished my lectures at SDE in Odense, and hereafter we went to Copenhagen by train. I was pretty much excited, who doesn’t love a getaway? 😉
I had booked a room for us at Hotel Phoenix Copenhagen, that is located in Copenhagen K, close to the Queen’s residence Amalienborg. Phoenix Copenhagen is a 4-star hotel, quite nice actually with its renaissance stylish interior and design, inspired by Louis XVI and the French Versailles Castle. I loved it. It just gave a feel of class and style, and you feel quite royal. Hehe 😉 You’ll find precious art on the walls in the common areas to.
The building itself is from the 17th century, and along with the Amalienborg and the Marmorkirken, it has indeed created important history and importance in and to the middle of Copenhagen. The hotel has 213 rooms, including 3 suites. It is located only few minutes from the famous, historical Kongens Nytorv, Det Kongelige Teater and Strøget – and of course close to Amalienborg. The hotel also have the restaurant von Plessen, where you can get breakfast, the restaurant Brasserie Murdoch’s Books & Ale, where you can get lunch and dinner. We tried the breakfast once on the last day, we stayed there, and it was only average. For proper breakfast or brunch, go for another place – which we did, and had booked in advance 😉
Our room – a Superior Room – was spacious, nice and clean, with own bathroom with bath tube. We could see Marmorkirken from our room, by the way.
After checking in, we went t explore the area around the hotel. We first went to the very famous Mormors Cafe, at Bredgade, a cozy little cafe, where you feel like you’ve taken 100 years aback 😉 Many celebreties have been here. In fact, Mormor means (maternal) grandma, and exactly as the name, the owner of this little café, Gitte Hansen, has created a retro café with interior that are more than 100 years old. And you’ll get the feeling.
