Hotel Ottila – The perfect hotel for your stay in Copenhagen.

Are you hunting for the perfect hotel for your weekend in Copenhagen?
A hotel that has style, without being achingly hip?
A luxe hotel that won’t break the bank?
A hotel that’s super convenient to most everything you would like to see in the City, without being in a cramped date hotel?
A hotel that has a unique history and new lease on life?

If you answered yes to any of those questions… I have found the perfect hotel in Copenhagen that fits that bill. Say Hello to Hotel Otilla.  Hotel Otilla is part of the Brochner Hotels collection of Luxury hotels in Denmark.  They have several hotels in Copenhagen, I would assume that my experience will be similar at most of their locations.

The Neighbourhood

Hotel Otillia is situated in Carlsberg City, a new neighbourhood that’s being developed on the former Carlsberg brewery site.

The whole neighbourhood is what you call up-and-coming… which means it’s not awash with bars and restaurants just yet.   There are a few and a local grocery store so you are not isolated.  If you are like me, you get excited to see the potential of an area, plus you can say I was there before it became hip.

Central Station and Tivoli about 15 minutes away on public transport  with the nearest train station being about a 5 minute walk from the hotel.

The Design

The hotel is converted from two disused brewery buildings with the iconic giant golden discs cladding the exterior.  They have managed to keep loads of the original fixtures  of the beer production and turned them in to design features like the old malt hopper that have been converted to an infinity water feature tin the lobby.

The design is a perfect blend of uber-chic industrial design with contemporary Scandi design elements. The overall aesthetic never feels cold like industrial design can often feel.   There are loads of little places to sit in the communal spaces and every where you look there is art, which I love. Take some time to explore the hotel its a beaut.

The Rooms

Think raw concrete walls, metal tables, crisp white linens, and bits of supple leather here and there. Colour palate is a dream of greys, browns and white.  The main design feature is the round windows with a leather seat. If im completely honest the windows alone on this hotel.  Most of the deluxe double bedrooms come with these..  I would suggest that you request it when you book your room.

The beds were super comfortable, so much so both mornings I decided that I needed to take advantage of the lie in. The pillows and duvet are feather free so perfect for allergy sufferers (Hello Me) The rooms are so sound proof which is great for those light sleepers out there (Hello Me Again)   

My bathroom was semi-open planed and looked onto the room.  It had a spacious waterfall shower and came with the most luxe of Ren toiletries.

The Food and Drink

They serve breakfast in the top floor restaurant.  I only had their breakfast offering as it was included in my rate… but after seeing what is on offer, if it was not included I would have happily paid the supplement to have it.   Loads of options…  little jars of warm scrambled eggs with sausages, platters of cheese and meat, little jars of overnight oats and housemate yoghurt, fruits, nuts, loads of breads and pastries, shots and smoothies…. it’s all organic and most of it is house made.

There is a lobby bar that specialises in gin… HELLO!  Plus there is  a daily wine hour (5pm-6pm) when you can sip a  glass or two of red or white on the house.  It was really refreshing to see so many people taking advantage of that.. injecting a bit of social into a hotel stay.

The Extras

There is a gym…. No, I did not work out.. Just went to have a nosy.  They have thought of everything there… you can rent a bike or if the gym is not your thing you can borrow an in-room fitness kit.  I was also surmised that you can check in via an app on your phone… then wait for it…use your phone as your room key…..Welcome to 2020.

There is free Wi-Fi and the rooms have Google Cromecast.   There are loads of usb plugs so you can leave the adapters back in the UK.

The Damage

My Deluxe Double room was about DKK 1,000 (£114) in high. I paid a little extra to have flexibility in my booking.  If you pay upfront at the time of booking it’s obviously cheaper.

It’s brilliant value for money and would go back for the wine hour alone.
