Close to the harbour, the cafe life of Nyhavn and the shopping streets, the Scandic Front is very well located, although it largely misses out on the romance of the nearby [node:170851].
The rooms are stylish and modern in design. The standard rooms (just 10sq m for the singles) are on the small side and some are looking a tad tired. I'd really recommend upgrading to a superior room, not just for the extra space but also because they were renovated in 2010 and some have balconies with harbour views. The layout of the superior rooms is nice too: they have a small living area with the bed on a mezzanine above.
The lobby area with the bar and restaurant leading off it is a really welcoming, funky, colourful space. There are comfy chairs, magazine racks, a flickering fire and a blackboard for you to chalk up a message. There's also a small shop for essentials.
Eating and drinking
The bar is a lively little space while the restaurant offers a great little tapas/grazing type menu with lots of fresh, simple options.
There's a decent little gym and sauna downstairs.
I found the service attentive and friendly. The small lobby can get crowded at check out time though.
Who stays there
Business travellers and couples on weekend breaks.
The Front does offer packages from time to time but the best way to get a deal is to book as far ahead as possible.
