71 Nyhavn Hotel was established in an old warehouse, that is now preserved, in 1971. The warehouse was originally used for storage of spices and other articles of commerce from the Far East. As lorries and planes began to take over a great deal of the overseas trade, the importance of the warehouse was somewhat diminished. Consequently it was turned into a storage room for furniture. Everywhere at the hotel you can still see the original rafters made of Pomeranian pine, making you sense an atmosphere of bygone days.
The hotel has gone through great redecorations and renovations in 1997, and today it appears as a first class hotel with a charming and rustic atmosphere. With the fantastic location on the corner of the Harbour and the Nyhavn Canal, the 150 rooms offer a splendid framework and setting for your visit in Copenhagen.
The waterfront location of the Nyhavn 71 hotel is quite unbeatable as it is situated right on the corner of the harbour and the Nyhavn Canal. Once a bustling port, the decline of shipping has left this converted warehouse in a trendy corner of this lovely city. Surrounded by waterfront restaurants it is just a few minutes walk from all the sights of this colourful city including the Amalienborg Castle, Kongens Nytorv and the famous pedestrian shopping street "Strøget".
Like much of Scandinavia, the Nyhavn 71 is committed to preserving the environment and it has been awarded a Green Key Award for its efforts. This includes offering bicycles to guests, supplying maps of local jogging routes and providing information on public transport, so even if you drive here you can park the car and enjoy the outdoor life for the rest of your stay. You will also notice low-energy light bulbs and water-saving features in your luxury hotel room or suite and only environmentally free cleaning products are used in the hotel.
This former dockside warehouse has been sympathetically converted to a luxury hotel in 1997, along with a row of similar buildings, creating a modern hotel which has a unique character and unrivalled views across the harbour and canal. It has become a favourite haunt of businessmen, opera singers and lovers in both the restaurant and the charming hotel. The onsite Restaurant Pakhuskælderen offers a gourmet menu of local smoked fish and other seasonal dishes inspired by the Danish/french cuisine. It is open for an intimate dining experience each evening.
There are 150 rooms and suites altogether in this thoroughly modern luxury hotel on Copenhagen’s historic waterfront. With cozy guest rooms and old wooden beams, you can also smell the spices which used to be stored here. Each room is stylishly furnished with blond wood in typical Scandinavian style. With modern features and tasteful décor, the rooms offer a comfortable stay with light, bright rooms, wireless internet access and smart modern bathrooms. Superior rooms guarantee a harbour view through the french windows whilst the junior suites are two storeys high at the very top of the building. They enjoy air conditioning and plenty of space for a family.
