The newly opened Tivoli Hotel is a joint venture between the Arp-Hansen Hotel Group and Tivoli Gardens. Bright, eclectic décor and amusement park theme-based rooms (boy and girl versions) make this hotel a festive home-base for families visiting Copenhagen. The property caters to business travelers too and at first blush, it feels corporate, although the lighthearted atmosphere and dedicated resources for families including indoor/outdoor play areas ensure young kids feel welcome. Our favorite feature is the wonderfully modern indoor swimming pool—perfect for family breaks from sightseeing or cold weather. The breakfast is excellent. The one downside is the slightly removed location from the heart of Copenhagen in an industrial zone; however, a 15-minute walk, bike ride (rentals available through hotel) or free shuttle transports guests easily to all the main attractions.
