Compact, green and easy to stroll around, Copenhagen is a wonderful city to explore at your own pace, and most of our Guru’s recommendations for the most romantic hotels in Copenhagen are well located for this city’s most romantic sights, like the views of palaces seen from the canals, or the fairytale Rosenborg Slot, like ‘Cupid and Psyche’ in the Thorvaldsen Museum, or Catherine the Great in the spiralling pathway up to the Rundetaam observatory, like the glorious winter gardens of Ny Carlsberg Glyptotck, or the playful and magical Tivoli Gardens.

The Most Romantic Hotels in Copenhagen

In a central location

First Hotel Skt Petri

  • SP34 is a characterful boutique hotel in the Latin Quarter with 118 stylish rooms and suites and an amazing penthouse. There are two restaurants and four bars, plus a beautiful roof terrace. And you’re just 500metres from the Tivoli Gardens.
  • Fans of Scandi style will love the Hotel Alexandra, a 61 room hotel just 200metres from the Tivoli Gardens and packed with wonderful mid-century Danish furniture. There’s an excellent restaurant, a trendy bar and a library.
  • The First Hotel Skt Petri has been converted from a Latin Quarter department store into a bright and airy 268 room hotel. The interiors are by well known Danish artist Per Arnoldi and there’s a fittingly modern restaurant with an excellent range of microbrewery beers.

Romantic Places to Relax

Guldsmeden Axel

For a Special Occasion


  • Copenhagen is known for its design, and the Nimb Hotel is high design, just not necessarily in the Danish style. It’s been converted from an early 20th century Moorish-inspired palace within the magical grounds of the Tivoli Gardens, and has a fairytale appeal and some lovely antiques. There are just 17 sumptuous bedrooms but a choice of drinking and dining options.
  • For something a bit more Danish, try d’Angleterre a stunning five star hotel converted from a palace, and complete with silk furnishings, marble bathrooms, chandeliers, and a Michelin starred restaurant and opulent champagne bar. There’s also a full spa, pool and gym.

Romantic yet Hip

Absalon Hotel

  • The Absalon Hotel is a stylish hotel on the edge of the trendy, and conveniently located, meat-packing district, with 161 individually styled rooms and a great cocktail bar.

For affordable romance

Avenue Hotel

  • The Avenue Hotel is a 68 room hotel converted from a graceful 19th century building decorated with stylish Danish designed furniture and Missoni throws. There’s a lounge with live music and fantastic cocktails.
  • Guldsmeden Bertrams is another great option if you’re looking for something romantic and a bit different. This eco hotel in the Vesterbro district has 47 beautiful white on white rooms with four poster beds and balconies overlooking a lovely garden. There’s a lovely lounge and a lively kitchen cafe.
