It’s no secret that Copenhagen has emerged as one of the most bustling cities of Scandinavia, combining the distinct nordic architecture and lifestyle with the vibrant open personas of southern Europe. It’s a city to lose yourself in, where you can try every pastry under the sun and stay up late and listen to the street musicians who fill the streets in all hours of the day. To complete the perfect danish weekend one needs to find themselves the perfect hotel. No need to look further, as I believe to have discovered yet another gem of the city; The Andersen boutique Hotel.
Situated in trendy Vesterbro, recently ranked as the fourth best Hipster area i the world, you’ll find yourself just a short walk away from landmarks such as Tivoli, Stroget, Nyhavn and the central station. The brick building has been filled with color and designers guild wallpapers, cushions and curtains that offers a truly familiar feeling. I was welcomed for an early checking by a very friendly staff and invited to the daily ’Wine Hour’ where the reception will offer you a free glass of wine between 5 and 6 pm for you to enjoy with the other guests or while playing a game of various boardgames in the lobby.
Since I was traveling with my mom and sister, we opted for the Junior Suite, which I would highly recommend. The room was bright, spacious with wooden floors, one double bed and a very comfortable sofa bed to fit two people.
We stayed in a 'Princess room' that is decorated in shades of pink. The hotel also offers 'Mermaid' and 'Emperial' rooms that go in turquoise and dark blue.
The breakfast was intimate with all the essentials as well as a few extra treats. How about a cinnamon bun with icing or maybe a little spirit in you morning coffee?
If you're sensitive to noise you might want to ask for a room facing the courtyard although I personally think a little city bustle is well worth the street view. The wifi was fast, all the facilities well-functioning and the staff will also do their best to arrange a late checkout. I can't wait to return next time I visit Copenhagen.

Location: 12 Helgolandsgade, Copenhagen V, 1653 Denmark
(Thank you to the Andersen Boutique Hotel for hosting our stay. My opinion is, of course, my own.)
