Absalon Hotel Copenhagen Review - Hipster Central
I was recently looking for a last minute, hip hotel in the heart of Copenhagen – and the Absalon fit the bill perfectly!
This cool hotspot is located a block from Central Station and Tivoli Gardens, is a great location for sight seeing, and serves fab cocktails.
Here’s my review:
The lobby screams 'design hotel' with its mood lighting, hip furniture, sleek cocktail lounge and a check-in that looks more like a DJ-booth than a front desk!
Looking for more coolness? - The lobby even has a 'test-bar' of Karmameju exclusive hand locations that you can sample while they process your reservation. Heaven!
I knew I was going to like this place right away: lux-toiletries upon arrival!
The rooms are fantastic!
I was surprised by the shear size. It wasn't a typical European chamber: it had plenty of space to move around. I should have brought a clubbing friend!
The room definitely had a ‘vibe’ to it as well. Decorated in rich purples and pinks, it felt like an extension of the lobby bar! Fashionable furniture - designer side tables - and even mini art installations...I was half expecting to see a bartender at any moment. "Rusty Nail - please...."
Interestingly, the room had plenty of lighting – I don’t think I’ve ever been in a hotel with so much! I assume it was to fight the dreary, long nights in the winter! I was lucky to be there in the summer, so I didn’t make much use of them (only six hours of darkness!).
Again- the bathroom made the place feel like a nightclub! The person who selected the colors definitely adored purple. The walls were a deep eggplant hue that reflected off all of the surfaces.
On top of this, the shower had contemporary wave tiling that you see in a lot of hotspots now. This may date the place down the line – but for the time being your disco-night-out starts in the bathroom at the Absalon!
The Absalson breakfast had Nordic charm and homeyness!
The buffet had everything on it that one would want to start your day: scrumptious freshly-baked breads, cold-cuts, cheeses, eggs, muesli, yogurts, pancakes, etc. I thought the cured ham was particularly amazing!
I would definitely stay there again on my next visit to Denmark.
I am a sucker for design hotels – and this one did a fab job. Cool rooms, a funky lobby, and great atmosphere. Be prepared: It looks like a rave could breakout at any moment!
