Review: Hilton Copenhagen Airport
This is a review of our recent stay at the Hilton Copenhagen Airport hotel where we stayed for one night between two flights. We chose the Hilton Copenhagen Airport due to convenience and the ability to have a lie in the following morning prior to our onward flight towards Dubai via Frankfurt.
Upon arrival to Copenhagen and after collecting our luggage we walked through the terminal towards the Metro station from where you can make a right turn which leads directly to the lobby of the Hilton Copenhagen Airport.
Copenhagen Airport has departure and arrival in the same area which can cause some chaos, but as soon as you make your way through the crowd, it is less than 5 minutes walk from the arrival hall to the Hilton Copenhagen Airport, and you remain inside for the entire walk. The hotel is very conveniently located if you just need somewhere to crash for a night between flights and with the metro literally attached to the building it is even possible to squeeze in a quick sightseeing trip to Copenhagen if time allows.
By Metro, Copenhagen city centre is approximately 20 min away, and the Metro operates 24/7 so you can even go into Copenhagen for a nice dinner and still avoid taking a taxi back to Hilton Copenhagen Airport.
We arrived at the hotel at 11:00 hrs and therefore did not expect the room to be ready, but fortunately they had a room ready. Check-in took less than 5 minutes, and we were soon on our way to the room which was located on the 5th floor facing the huge long stay car park outside the hotel and with a view of one of the approaches to Copenhagen airport. The lobby of the hotel occupies the entire bottom floor of the building and besides the reception, this is also where you will find the hotel’s bar and restaurant.
The first thing you see when you enter the room is a small hallway with the bathroom on the left side and the actual room in front. The room is very spacious and has relatively modern interior with a large king size bed and a comfortable chair next to the bed close by the window. The room also features a desk for anyone who wishes to work during the stay. In front of the bed and next to the desk, the TV is located featuring mostly Danish TV channels, but there are also some English, German and Swedish channels to choose from. There is plenty of storage space inside the room with some large cabinets occupying the entire wall next to the bed. There is a kettle for making tea and coffee, and the minibar is stocked with drinks and snacks.
The bathroom is spacious and has separate shower and bath and a relatively large area around the sink to store toiletries.
Food and Dining
As we had lunch and dinner in Copenhagen city centre, we only had breakfast at Hilton Copenhagen Airport. Breakfast is served at the Horizon restaurant at the lobby from 05:30 am every morning. We arrived around 08:00 am and had no issues getting seated. The buffet is big and features a large variety of breakfast dishes.
Due to our limited stay, we didn’t take advantage of any of the facilities, which the hotel offers. The hotel features a small spa with indoor saltwater pool, hot tub and steam room, which are available for guests staying at the hotel for 125 Dkk per person. There is also an indoor fitness centre available free of charge for guests staying at the hotel.
How did we book
We booked this stay using Hilton HHonors points. Hilton Copenhagen Airport is a category 7 hotel and the nightly rate is 50,000 points. The hotel is nice if you have a quick stop in Copenhagen and with the metro literally at the doorstep the hotel can even be used for sightseeing during a short stay. It is worth noting that there is no free car parking and so instead anyone with a car would need to park at one of airports car parks, which are relatively expensive. So if you plan on renting a car, I would find a hotel with free parking available.
