The busy city center of Copenhagen is a pulsating maze of cobbled streets, cyclists and fantastic shopping. Choosing a hotel in the heart of a city can often lead to a cold, indifferent experience for guests. Upon arriving at The Square Hotel– I knew this place had a lot more to share with it’s visitors.
The Low Down
The Square, which is located on Rådhuspladsen street, just a few doors down from the famous Tivoli Theme Park and Town Hall of Copenhagen, is ideal for sightseers and anybody wanting to keep busy while in Denmark’s capitol. The Hotel, although having a bustling lobby and 268 rooms, has managed to maintain a warm and welcoming feel in it’s elegant setting.
The staff are incredibly lovable, with a fresh faced workforce, they are always ready to help you out. From printing flight tickets to booking concerts- they were always there to lend me a hand.
Breakfast was no exception to this with the wide eyed and smiley staff gratefully assisting guest with the modern technology (the coffee machine is touch screen). The buffet is a great mix of continental and new age classics, with the standard bacon and eggs, Danish pastries and an abundance for fresh fruit and vegetables.
The Executive Lounge located on the 6th floor (an extra 150 DKK per day) is worth the splurge if the weather is looking pretty miserable. From 2pm-10pm you gain exclusive access to the top floor dining area to unwind and enjoy a coffee or light snack. The great range of drinks (including beers, wine, champagne and smoothies!) are all unlimited and some delicious pastries, fruit and chips are provided for you to indulge whilst catching up with international newspapers, emails or business. I loved this added extra and definitely used it to my advantage while the weather was not permitting.
When you are handed over your keys to the top floor of any hotel, you always feel a twinge of excitement. I had every reason to be excited about what I was about to walk into- my funky executive room. Located on the 6th floor, these rooms offer a huge balcony space that overlooks the busy city below. The balconies alone are incredibly modern, with an industrial chic feel. If it wasn’t negative 3 degrees, I would have spent countless hours out there- so this hotel would be great for a Summer escape.
The double beds are, as expected, incredibly comfortable with thick duvet and soft cotton sheets. The room layout, although very different than standard rooms, somehow worked and gave a great view while perched in bed. The bathroom has all the amenities you could expect, with extra-large towels (my favourite) and a crisp white décor.
Another added bonus is the access to cable television, with a few various languages across multiple channels. I was thrilled having MTV and a Hollywood movie channel to watch whilst it bucketed down outside!
Stay Here If:
You are set on sightseeing, shopping or have business in Copenhagen city. The location is one of the best you will find, within 5 minutes of the central train station (that heads to the airport).

I was welcomed as a guest at The Square, however all opinions, as always, are true to my own.
