Phoenix

Bredgade 37, Frederiksstaden, Copenhagen, Capital Region, 1260, Denmark

The hotel was originally built in the 1680s but was torn down and rebuilt—rising from its rubble, just like the mythical Phoenix rose from its ashes—in 1847 as a plush, Victorian-style hotel. Suites are large and adorned with 18-karat-gold-plated bathroom fixtures and reproductions of antiques; standard rooms are very small, measuring barely 9 by 15 feet. The hotel is close enough to city-center attractions that it gets a fair amount of street noise; light sleepers should ask for rooms above the second floor. Downstairs is Murdoch's Books & Ale, a snug pub done up in mahogany and brass that serves smørrebrød and light meals.
