Copenhagen: Hotel Kong Arthur

After an extremely early start and a short flight over from Gatwick to our weekend destination of Copenhagen, we needed a hotel to access quickly and get on with our time here. Luckily, it took us just 25 mins to get from CPH airport to Hotel Kong Arthur, and despite it being before 10am, our room was available to check into.

This start was symbolic of our short stay in this beautiful hotel – seamless, easy and pure quality.

We hadn’t even got to the hotel yet and we were already walking on water! Walking along the nearby frozen Copenhagen lakes, we had a sense that the hotel and Copenhagen as a whole was going to be one to remember.

We approached the grand Kong Arthur along a cobbled alley and when the oakwood door swung open to welcome us in, we felt the hygge concept sweep through us in an instant. The comfy sofas, fireplaces and grand pianos created an atmosphere of tranquility and sophistication like never before.

We were lucky enough to be staying in one of their amazing Double Superior rooms, which seemed large enough not only for us, but for a whole family. We had a fantastic and peaceful night’s sleep, and used all the basic but elegant amenities of the TV, sofas, desk, chair and luxury bathroom.

We just wish that we were able to stay longer and check out the full range of facilities that the Kong Arthur has to offer. Along with what looks like a beautiful spa and water temple, they also offer bike rental, car rental, running sessions and a range of unique events.

We made sure not to miss out on one thing though – and that is cosy hour. Free drink of your choice from the bar every day between 5 and 6pm – why not!?

However perhaps the number one memory from staying here will be the breakfast! We enjoyed it so much that we only came away with one snap…

They had it all… from sausages, eggs and bacon, a wide selection of breads, cheeses and even somewhere to make your own hot waffles! Overlooking the beautifully snowy courtyards we found ourselves going back for more and more, unsurprisingly still full by lunch time. It certainly set us up for a full day of exploring the city.

We always say that on breaks away, the hotel isn’t that important to us. Usually, it’s all about spending the time outdoors and seeing what our destination has to offer. However, whilst our priorities stayed in order, this medieval themed hotel completed an amazing weekend in an amazing city. It made everything that extra bit more memorable and if we ever return to Copenhagen, we’ll most certainly be returning to Hotel Kong Arthur.

    Oh wow, I feel like I need to book a visit to Copenhagen immediately just to stay at this hotel! I absolutely love the decor, everything looks so classy and well thought out, you can tell when a lot of time and effort has gone into hotel interiors and this ticks pretty much every box! I'm so impressed purely from the description of the breakfast, as Kate says above, a waffle making station has got to be a hit! Cosy hour is an inspired idea too, and not just because of the free drinks either! I bet it's a wonderful occasion to be in the hotel bar mingling with lots of people merry on their free booze, it must create such a charming atmosphere! I must admit that a medieval themed hotel did initially conjure up thoughts of sleeping on a hay bale alongside a peasant with a tankard of ale clutched in one hand and a sword in the other but this hotel has definitely proved me wrong! So glad you enjoyed your stay!Abbey xx
