Star rating:
3 star hotel

A charming small hotel close to the city's museums, gardens and harbour.

It might lack some of the hip design features of competitors, but the Christian IV has an old school charm and a great location that makes it well worth considering.

Location

Very close to the King's Gardens, the National Art Museum, Rosenborg and Amalienborg castles, not to mention some excellent restaurants, the Christian IV isn't quite in a prime location but it is within walking distance of many of Copenhagen's cultural and historic treasures. It's also reasonably quiet.

Bedrooms

The bedrooms are a bit old fashioned with minimal facilities but they are comfortable and quiet. There's free WiFi, and desks to work at. The bathrooms are also a bit old fashioned but clean and adequate.

Public areas

This is a small hotel so there's not much in the way of public space, apart from the breakfast area.

Eating and drinking

The breakfast buffet is modest but what there is - including bread, pastries and juices - is fresh and tasty. Good restaurants, including Japanese restaurant Umami and fine-dining gem Rasmus Oebeck, are just around the corner. If you're on a budget there's also a deli nearby - perfect for picking up tasty cheeses and cured meat for a picnic in the lovely, quiet gardens next to the hotel.

Leisure facilities

The hotel has a deal with an excellent gym nearby. It also hires bikes for 125kr a day.

Service

What the Christian IV lacks in modernity or breadth of facilities, it makes up for in the charm and welcome it offers.

Who stays there

Older couples seeking peace and quiet and families with children will find it an appealing option.

Price advice

As elsewhere in Copenhagen there are deals in the summer holidays and also sometimes at weekends.
