06.05.2019- Travel Talk: Ibsens Hotel, Copenhagen

Monday, 6 May 2019

Last week, my lovely friend Lucy and I journeyed to Copenhagen- a trip which had been in the planning since last November when we snapped up some bargain flights. Copenhagen is a destination I’ve wanted to visit for absolutely ages, and after planning some annual leave to fall perfectly between Easter and today’s Bank Holiday, we managed to capitalise on a wonderful four day break in the city. With lots of activities planned and a whole host of recommendations from friends to work through, we were lucky enough to be offered the chance to stay at the beautiful Ibsens Hotel, which proved the perfect base for our break: 


Located in the unique Nørreport area of Copenhagen, Ibsens Hotel and its sister, Hotel Kong Arthur, have been welcoming guests to the city in their fully refurbished guise since 2011. Our room at Ibsens was a double and absolutely perfect for two people, complete with lovely bathroom facilities, complimentary Nordic Amber toiletries and some gorgeous homely touches from Hay. The area is lively but not too busy, and Ibsens is a stone’s throw away from some of Copenhagen’s most recommended attractions, including the Botanic Gardens, Rosenborg Castle and Nyhavn. The fact that it’s so close to Nørreport station also makes it ideal for getting about with ease, although we trended to prefer walking to make the most of our time in the city and get familiar with our surroundings- meaning we clocked up a cool 53km during our stay!

As well as a wonderfully comfortable room and beautifully designed surroundings, any stay at Ibsens also comes with a complimentary breakfast, complete with a whole host of New Nordic options including freshly baked bread and pastries, cheese, ham and signature porridge. All of the food on offer is guaranteed to be as sustainable as possible, sourced locally and organically as far as it can be. For this reason, along with the hotel’s overall commitment to embracing an eco-friendly approach, it has been awarded The Green Key, denoting a global standard in sustainability. 

As if that wasn’t enough, Ibsens also offers Hygge hour every day from 5-6pm (with a complimentary wine, beer or apple juice) and guests can also make use of a regular running club, as well as the wonderfully luxurious Ni’mat spa, complete with sauna, steam room and jacuzzi- a heavenly treat on our last evening. We also dined at on-site restaurant La Rocca, which was a great way to round off the trip. All in all, I couldn’t recommend Ibsens more. Everything about our stay was a pleasure, and made us feel really welcome in Copenhagen- especially the wonderfully hospitable staff, and the overall relaxed atmosphere of the hotel, not to mention their incredible commitment to sustainability. I’m already thinking about planning a return visit, and wouldn’t hesitate to stay at Ibsens again. 

*I was very kindly offered two nights of our stay on a complimentary basis for review. The remaining two nights were paid for. As ever, my opinions and impressions are 100% genuine.
