There’s something for everyone in Copenhagen, Denmark. In the country of fairy-tales written by HC Andersen, the country is full of character and stories. Andersen Boutique Hotel, now run by the 3rd generation of Absalon Hotel Group founder, Erna Andersen, is one of the very hip choices for younger travellers to Copenhagen.

Named after Erna Andersen, the general manager of the hotel, who also operates Absalon Hotel on the other side of Helgolandesgade, Karen Nedergaard believes in caring, honesty and excellent services are the core values of running a family business started 75 years ago.  Completely renovated and all 73 rooms and suites are stylishly decorated, the hotel is located 5 minutes walk from the main train station and set within a very hip area of Copenhagen. Located on Vesterbro in the heart of Copenhagen, only 200m from the central station, close to the city centre, metro, parks, shopping, restaurants and the nightlife. It is also very close to the meatpacking district. (Which I found out the next morning, I was only 3 mins walk from the hotel!) The Meatpacking District is an area which is open for all and is especially known for the many restaurants of very high gastronomic nature and the newly opened galleries; there are also cafes and by night there are quite a lot of trendy cool bars and clubs that the locals love going.

The hotel is very stylish, where you can see touches of design elements everywhere.


There are monthly events at the Lobby Lounge, and on the day I visited it was a wine tasting party with live DJ.


The hotel design is full of bold colours. It’s not difficult to see the use of colour palettes such as violet and pink, blue and turquoise. The textiles and wallpapers used in the rooms and suits are from the award-winning English Designer Guild, with such vibrant and urban colours, the hotel showed another side of Copenhagen and its design.

I love my little yellow rubber duck in my bath tub.

The rooms are full of character and I just love the green/blue colour palette, they created a sense of coolness yet charming. I was at first a little worried about the noise as the hotel is situated in one of the very busy hip areas of the city, and night life in Copenhagen is quite a busy one. During the day if I have my windows closed, the room can be quite quiet. However since I also went for a party until rather late, by the time I got back it was very late already. Having said that, the city is very safe, and the location of the hotel is so central and convenient that I could easily walk over to nearby places to look for a late night bite before going to bed.

If you are travelling to Copenhagen for the first time and want to explore the city within a limited amount of time, Anderson Boutique Hotel is a very good choice. It’s affordable price, central location, stylish design and friendly hotel staff. With the Concept 24 system of the hotel, guests can request for a late departure and may keep the room for 24 hours no matter the time of arrive at no extra cost. It is a very welcoming boutique hotel for anyone with any budget, it is also a very cool place to mingle and meet like-minded travellers in the hotel events. There is something for everyone.
