• Copenhagen Island – A uniquely designed hotel in Copenhagen

Welcome to the official website of Copenhagen Island

Welcome to Hotel Copenhagen Island

The view of water makes us relax, release our thoughts and find new energy. In addition, it has a positive effect on our health and quality of life. Therefore, in a big city of high pulse and pace, the blue waves are particularly important and beneficial, but are, for the same reason, difficult – and rare – to enjoy in a blissful atmosphere. As a guest at Copenhagen Island, you are surrounded by a rippled water surface in Copenhagen’s harbour bath. Right here, you can experience the city from its quiet and blissful side while you are close to the city centre and its most popular attractions. We look forward to welcoming you!

Step into artistic frames of glass

Light, air and glass is the common thread in our hotel, designed by the recognized Danish architect Kim Utzon. You will experience that theme as soon as you step into our foyer – the heart of the hotel – since it is framed by a seven-floor glass tower, decorated by high-gloss surfaces and blue glass art from the Danish designer Lin Utzon. In the foyer, you will be met with plenty inflows of light, which, on sunny days, creates a crystallic reflection from the surrounding water surface in the harbour.

Arrange your meetings and conferences at our hotel

You and your guests are in good and professional hands at Copenhagen Island. You will get a personal host or hostess who meets you with warmth and make sure to get you smoothly through the day. If you need some fresh air and wish to return to the table with creative ideas or problem solving, you can add a ‘walk and talk’ in your agenda – and go for a walk along the promenade.

Enjoy your breakfast, lunch, dinner – and parties – at our hotel

Behind a sloping and glass framed façade, you find our restaurant, The Harbour, in the front row by the waterfront. In here, you are surrounded by water and vivid inflows of light while you eat your meals during the day. You can start with our morning buffet and brunch plates, which for instance include freshly baked bread, cheese, jams, eggs, sausages and bacon, yoghurt and freshly cut fruit. For lunch and dinner, you can, as both a hotel guest and a hungry passer-by, enjoy our à la carte dishes – and they always promise freshness and flavour, since our menus go hand in hand with the seasons.

The Harbour have room for 226 seated guests and therefore create bright, festive frames for everything from birthdays and baptisms to weddings.

Close to the city attractions and must-sees

As a guest on Copenhagen Island, you are within walking distance to the hip restaurants and throbbing nightlife in the Meatpacking District, Tivoli Gardens and CNN honoured bathing spots in the harbour. You can also pull on your trainers and let them carry you along the paths along the promenade.

Ideal Location

Copenhagen Island, a modern and stylish hotel with 326 rooms, is located in the pulsating neighbourhood Vesterbro. It lies right on the waterfront, offering excellent views of either Copenhagen’s harbour or across the city’s roofs and towers. The entire area around the hotel is buzzing with life and especially Islands Brygge and Kødbyen are well worth a visit when you’re staying in Copenhagen.

Whether you arrive from Copenhagen’s Kastrup airport, the Central Railway Station or Dybbølsbro local S-train station, Copenhagen Island is the perfect starting point for your visit. Travelling from the airport takes only 15-20 minutes by taxi and if arriving by inter-city train, it takes just 15 minutes to walk to the hotel from the Central Railway Station. Even closer is Dybbølsbro S-train station, lying right in front of the hotel and less than a 5 minute walk away! See our website here for more information!

There are endless possibilities for activities around the hotel – all within walking or cycling distance. Bicycles are available for hire at the hotel and are an easy way of getting around.

The harbour swimming baths are an obvious choice in the summer season. There are 3 public swimming baths in Copenhagen’s harbour with one right outside the Copenhagen Island hotel. These public swimming facilities are all manned by qualified lifeguards throughout the summer months.

A number of designated exercise routes are to be found all around the harbour waterfront and in the local neighbourhood and they are ideal for walking, jogging or cycling. Small motorboats can be hired from Copenhagen Boat Rent on the quayside alongside the hotel, allowing you to explore the harbour and canals from the water itself.

Copenhagen Mall (Fisketorvet) is next door to the hotel and offers a first class shopping experience with a huge variety of shops and specialised stores, cafés and restaurants together with a multi-screen cinema, all under one roof.

The trendy venue Kødbyen is located centrally in Vesterbro with cafés, bars, restaurants and night clubs all established in the redundant slaughterhouse buildings. The restaurants rule from midday until late evening, whereupon the bars and clubs take over for the night. There’s a fantastic atmosphere at the old abattoir and Kødbyen attracts both the locals and visitors to the city.

Enjoy a delicious dinner in our restaurant The Harbour.

In our Restaurant The Harbour you will find an international menu. During the summer it is possible to enjoy a meal outdoors on our terrace by the waterside. We also have the spectacular water view in our restaurant and make for a great dinner experience at Copenhagen Island. You are able to read more about our restaurant, menu’s and book a table here
