With its elegant rococo palaces, Little Mermaid, and colorful medieval streets and canals, Copenhagen makes the ideal setting for a romantic break. For those looking for the perfect base for a weekend escape or Valentine's treat, book you and your loved one into one of Copenhagen's distinctive boutique hotels, where maritime charm, cozy atmosphere and distinctive decors merge with Scandinavian service and efficiency.
Luxury and opulence is apparent at Hotel D'Angleterre, an 18th-century landmark that has been made more attractive by a recent and very comprehensive renovation. Guests can enjoy a similar type of old world elegance at hotels Phoenix and Opera, where Louis XIV and English styles respectively make their mark.
For an upmarket hotel with a difference, Nimb Hotel, in Tivoli, really stands out. This tiny hotel has just 17 rooms, each of them unique, and impeccable service. Luxury is also found out of town and the coastal coaching inn Skovshoved Hotel, a wonderful mix of old with new.
Round off a romantic weekend of pampering and indulgence with a complete spa treatment: Two of Copenhagen's best spas are found at Hotel Kong Arthur's Ni'mat spa and Hotel Axel Guldsmeden, where guests can relax with a mix of both modern and traditional treatments.
Copenhagen's romantic appeal is boosted by its proximity to the water, and a room with a sea view makes all the difference. Those partial to sea air and a maritime flavor will be charmed by Hotel 71 Nyhavn or Admiral Hotel, two renovated harbor warehouses modernized to a high standard; in contrast, Copenhagen Island is a prime example of modern Scandinavian architecture.
