Villa Copenhagen Bottom Line Review (Book via Fine Hotels & Resorts or Choice Privileges)


My wife and I stayed one night at the Villa Copenhagen before the start of a terrific food tour of Denmark.  We booked this stay through American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts, but the hotel can also be booked with Choice Privileges points.  This turned out to be a fantastic choice for our one-night stay, and we would have loved to have stayed longer.

Villa Copenhagen Bottom Line Review

Villa Copenhagen is an excellent hotel in an excellent location in Copenhagen.  Our deluxe room was stylish and comfortable, and breakfast was terrific.

  • Price: We booked one night through Fine Hotels and Resorts (FHR) in order to make use of the American Express Platinum‘s $200 credit. We paid $384 and received $200 back thanks to our Platinum card.  As an FHR booking, this hotel offers excellent value. They provided $100 in food and beverage credits, free breakfast, and 4pm late check-out.
  • Point Price:  The same hotel is available through Choice Privileges for 40,000 points per night.  For that price, you can pick any available room other than a suite, so I’d recommend picking the Deluxe King (which is the highest price non-suite room).  When cash rates are high, this can be very good value, but when base-room rates are below $400 per night, you may be better off booking through a luxury or preferred partner hotel program such as Fine Hotels & Resorts or Virtuoso in order to get extra perks like we did.  The risk with that approach is that if the hotel is near capacity you may not get upgraded to a Deluxe room.
  • Location: Excellent.  The hotel is steps away from Tivoli Gardens and Copenhagen’s Central Station.
  • Resort/Destination Fee: None.
  • Fine Hotel and Resorts Benefits: 
    • Room Upgrade: We booked a standard room and were upgraded to a deluxe King.
    • Free Breakfast: Fantastic breakfast buffet with made-to-order omelets and chef-prepared pastries.
    • Property Credit: $100 in food and beverage.  This was nearly enough for an excellent dinner at the hotel on the night we checked in.
    • Early Check-in:  We could have checked in early but didn’t arrive until close to 4pm.
    • Free WiFi
    • Late Checkout: 4PM. We were asked at check-in if we would like late checkout the next day.  Yep!  Fortunately, the key continued to work without trouble even after noon.
  • Would I stay again?  Yep. The location is excellent and it’s a terrific place to use Fine Hotel & Resort credits that come with Amex Platinum cards.

Pros and Cons


  • Excellent location
  • Great breakfast
  • Stylish and comfortable rooms
  • The outdoor pool and bar look great (but I didn’t get a chance to try them)
  • With Choice points you can book directly into a Deluxe Room for the same price as a standard room.


  • Hotel is very close to the train station.  If you get a room on the train-track side, it might be noisy.
  • Rooms are fairly small.

We stayed there the end of April for 3 nights and enjoyed it. One night FHR and two on Choice points. They combined the days in one reservation so we didn’t have to check in and out. Kept the same room, just like yours. The heated pool was a nice treat while it was cool outside.

Wondering why you did not stay at the Marriott? I stayed at the Marriott on a $130 lnf rate and they blew me away. Gave me a huge suite, and their lounge was tough to beat – including an amazing breakfast. The room is at least 4x larger than you have. I would have saved the $200 fhr credit for Vegas or something.

We stayed there using Choice Points two years ago. We loved the location, the room, and the breakfast. We highly recommend it!

My wife and I stayed there this year. The rooms are very small. The pool is small and limited access due to the size. Breakfast was large but nothing special vs other nice hotels in Europe. Noise from the trains was a problem. Honestly, we would not stay there again.

Just Saying

Btw if you’re going to offer a differing opinion (like breakfast) you should also give some examples on what “other nice” hotels in Europe provide the experience you’re looking for


AFAIK, the hotel’s pool is actually one of the biggest year-round outdoor hotel pools across all the major hotel chains in the larger Nordic/Scandinavian countries’s main cities. Perhaps they limit pool use by guests because they want it to be an enjoyable experience rather than a super crowded one more reminiscent of Tivoli at times.

Stayed there last year through FHR. Agree that this is a great hotel with one of the best breakfasts I’ve seen.


Did you have a chance to go to Tivoli? I think it was right across the street from your hotel.


It’s kitty corner to the hotel, yes.

When I stay at this hotel I rarely am using Choice points at it, but I do use the FHR rate often when the rates are low. On the FHR rates, crediting the stay to the Strawberry/Nordic Choice Club program can provide an ok haul of points toward a free night at the basic — but ok breakfast included — Comfort Hotel at CPH airport.

And yes some Villa Copenhagen rooms facing the train tracks and the outdoor courtyard can get noisy between the events/parties outdoor at the hotel and the noise from the trains.

Being in the heated outdoor pool in winter while people and vehicles are moving on the road down below is something I like doing at this hotel. But the pool use is limited per guest and requires a booking.


We’re actually planning to stay there is winter on Choice points. Good to know it’s as good in person as it is on paper.
