It’s a boat. Remember that. Boats are cramped and beasts to keep clean and fresh. Manage your expectations; I didn’t. It’s an experience to stay on a boat, but there is nothing glamorous or luxurious about this one. We stayed in one of the cabins, and while “private”, you will s…

Response from Hawila:
Dear Margaret! You are definitely right, it's a boat and we do hope that it is very clear in our description that you can expect an experience of an old wooden sailing ship rather than a luxury stay. It has steep stairs, the noises spread out quite easily, there are locks in the private cabins that you can use from the insight but there are no outside ones from the safety reasons, you need to access all the spot, also below the deck, in case of emergency. The boat has 83 years old and is being restored by a group of volunteers using traditional techniques creating a small, cosy, sustainability-oriented community so it really depends what are you into and if you find this kind of things interesting and want to become a part of it or support:) Also the opinion on the size of the cabin is quite relative. It has two wooden benches to store the luggage and quite a big shelter under the sink, it's out most luxurious cabin. But we are aware of the fact that Hawila is a place that maybe, no matter how hard we try to make it cozy and welcoming, will not meet the expectations and preferences for some of the guests, which is completely fine and normal:) I'm just sorry to hear you didn't really enjoy. When it comes to the metro station is literally 8 minutes away:)

The best hospitality I've experienced and a well fostered welcoming and community feel among other guests. I can't recommend this place and the wonderful crew highly enough.

Looking for a different stay from the usual? Bunk down on a working ship. We rented the Starboard cabin (2 berths). It was quiet & cool -- perfect for sleeping. The crew were friendly and helpful. Recommend!

My boyfriend was very skeptical about it, but I was excited like a little kid and thought it was cool. It’s definitely an experience to try out. Located just one stop away from the airport and has a pretty view. The host is extremely nice and responsive. The room was cool with bu…

We had a great experience staying in the Starboard Cabin. When we arrived, we were shown around the boat and received great hospitality. We chatted with several members of the staff over a drink before going to bed. Would highly recommend. Note: as you are staying on a boat, th…

What an awesome and unique experience! Me and my best friend were visiting Copenhagen for the weekend and were looking for an adventure. The boat is very close to the airport as well as a metro station that takes you directly into the city. All the crew members were welcoming and…

Ahoy fellow pirates! Thank you for being interested in considering Hawila as your home while staying in Copenhagen:) Please keep in mind that it's not an apartment, not a hotel- it's an old traditional wooden ship- and that means you can expect a great adventure and become a par…
