7 Telegraph expert rating

Axel Guldsmeden is an oasis of bohemian Balinese calm on the edge of Copenhagen’s trendiest district, Vesterbro. Eschewing the Scandi-chic style that has become so popular across Copenhagen, the hotel takes its design inspiration from Indonesia with Buddha stone statues, woven chairs and richly coloured tapestry-style rugs. It is one of the few hotels in Copenhagen that comes with a spa. It’s small but cosy: candle-lit and cushion strewn and with everything you could need in the form of a cold plunge pool, sauna, a steam bath and hot tub. Their organic spa products are made in the kitchen every morning. Read expert review From £104per night Check availability Rates provided byBooking.com

Nimb Hotel Copenhagen, Denmark

9 Telegraph expert rating

A Moorish-inspired palace located in Europe’s oldest fairground with 17 impeccably designed Danish-style bedrooms, complete with open fires and enormous freestanding bathtubs. Dreamt up in 1909 by Tivoli’s house architect Knud Arne-Petersen, Nimb was built to be an ‘Arabian fantasy castle’ with striking Taj Mahal-style turrets. Its exterior has since been upgraded with high-grade marble stucco and millions of exterior lightbulbs that bring the place to life at night. Read expert review From £324per night Check availability Rates provided byBooking.com

Babette Guldsmeden Copenhagen, Denmark

7 Telegraph expert rating

Idiosyncratic, laidback and big on all things organic and sustainable, Babette is the very antithesis of a bland, corporate hotel and makes a homely, welcoming base in a peaceful but central location. The boho boutique vibe is obvious the moment you step into the ante-lobby, with its earthenware pots, trailing plants and candles. There’s a strong Balinese influence to the décor but here it’s mixed in with old Chesterfields and modern artworks. Read expert review From £104per night Check availability Rates provided byBooking.com

Hotel d’Angleterre Copenhagen, Denmark

9 Telegraph expert rating

A Copenhagen landmark, the d’Angleterre is a historic grande dame hotel given a stylish modern makeover, with an excellent location and a ritzy guest list that ranges from rock stars to royalty. This ultra-elegant palace hotel combines period features (grand proportions, stately columns, lavish chandeliers) with bucketloads of contemporary comfort and style (a classy colour palette of muted lilacs and greys, luxe materials and dramatic floral arrangements). The lower-ground-floor spa has a sauna, hammam, fitness room and pool. Read expert review From £347per night

Copenhagen Admiral Hotel Copenhagen, Denmark

7 Telegraph expert rating

An impressive former granary building with heavy wooden beams on Copenhagen’s waterfront, peppered with maritime influences. Located down long, ship-style corridors with brass lamps, bedrooms have heavy wooden beams and contemporary artwork by Peter Brandes and Mogens Andersen. Beds are seriously comfortable and Danish company Trip Trap are behind the grated teak furniture. The hidden pearl is the little sixth-floor sauna and steam room, which you can book out for an hour’s private use for 50DKK (£5). Read expert review From £85per night Check availability Rates provided byBooking.com

Hotel SP34 Copenhagen, Denmark

8 Telegraph expert rating

This is the Latin Quarter’s finest boutique hotel, with a mix of modern and mid-century Danish furnishings, friendly staff, an arty vibe, and three lively restaurants to choose from. It has a relaxed but lively atmosphere that’s in keeping with the bohemian area it resides in. Bedrooms are very Scandinavian in design with neutral coloured walls, stripped floorboards and snow-white linens. The Cocks & Cows (it’s short for cocktails…) serves arguably the best burger in town. COFOCO (Copenhagen Food Consulting) are behind the other restaurant, Work in Progress, and a do a typical three-course Danish menu for around 295DKK (£32). Read expert review From £115per night Check availability Rates provided byBooking.com

Hotel Alexandra Copenhagen, Denmark

7 Telegraph expert rating

Hotel Alexandra is the only retro hotel of its kind in Copenhagen, decorated with mid-century modern Danish design pieces such as Arne Jacobsen’s Egg Chair, Børge Mogensen’s Spokeback Sofa and Finn Juhl’s teak coffee tables. Don’t be fooled by the feeling of time standing still though: this hotel is modern and welcoming, right on The Town Hall Square. If you’re looking for real time travel, book either the Collector’s Suite or the Verner Panton Suite: the first is inspired by the Seventies and is designed by well-known collector of Danish vintage furniture Anders Petersen; the latter is a tribute to the Sixties and the famous Danish designer. Read expert review From £95per night Check availability Rates provided byBooking.com
