The Good and the bad of the newest hotel in Copenhagen
After a weekend stay in Copenhagen’s newest luxury hotel, here is an overall review of the good and the bad at Hotel Herman K:
First and foremost, the hotel is centrally located near Stroget and Nyhavn. You can easily walk or bike to any of the major landmarks and attractions. At the same time, you can also call a taxi (using the Taxa app) and it can conveniently pick you up right in front of the hotel.
If you are two or three adults, you can comfortably stay in the suites because of the spacious configuration of the bed area and the sitting room. The sofa converts to a full-size bed with room for a small table and chairs. Plus, there is also a balcony to enjoy the warm summer days or cool nights with a cozy blanket.
Start your day with an amazing breakfast spread of local bread, pastries, fruits, yogurts, muesli, cheeses, cereals, salads, and more. Plus, you can order egg any way you like it, avocado toast, Danish pate, pancakes, oatmeal, or other hot selections. On top of that, you can even have champagne or cava to ease in your day.
Drink the day and night away
Aside from bubbly for breakfast, the hotel offers guests wine hour in the late afternoon, cocktail hour for a nightcap, and even an inclusive mini bar. Such a perfect recipe for a most relaxing hotel stay.
Towels are too fresh – as in not even washed
As the hotel just opened on June 1, 2018, there are opening kinks that still must be worked out. The most notable is that the bath towels smell and feel as though they are straight out the box and not even washed. When that happens, you can smell the cardboard, the towel is way more fluffy than usual, and lint comes off of it and on to your clothes. It is the smell of the cardboard that is the most unpleasant part and the knowledge that you are not wiping yourself with a truly clean towel.
While the towels can easily be remedied, another notable critique is the design of the bathroom. In the suite, the shower in the bathroom is completely open, as in no enclosure nor curtain. The entire bath gets soaked from your shower, the toilet area, and the whole floor. There is a squeegee which you can use to bring the water to the drain, but you are in a luxury hotel – the cleaning should be done for you.
Apart from those two downsides, the hotel is so conveniently located in central Copenhagen with an amazing breakfast spread, a generosity of inclusive drinks, and a fantastic restaurant for dinner. Those upsides can make up for the couple of shortcomings especially if you are in town for a short stay.
