Ha, Copenhagen your cobblestones didn't defeat me.

After the rocky start, Copenhagen was interesting and colder. The cobblestones were a major challenge to me, and a massive strain on mom's blood pressure as she kept rushing to prevent my imminent doom, sometimes it was needed. The bicycles get the smooth road, I got the cobblestones, and nearly got collected when I crossed the cycle lane or …

Today we moved out of our nice hotel to the hotel where the people in Marty's conference are staying. It costs half again as much and isn't as nice, but oh well. Anyway, Marty went to his conference, and I took a trip about 20 minutes out of town to Roskilde. Back in the 13th century, Roskilde was the seat of Danish royalty. For this reason, all …

... a bar there and happy hour was from 7-8! Really great staff as well! Our first day in Denmark consisted of a walking tour! The tour was really well done and FREE May I add. We saw a lot of really neat beautiful things and learned a lot of interesting facts. I learned that in world war 2 Denmark saved 98 percent of their Danish Jews by intercepting a message. I learned that they pay 50 percent taxes and 200 percent on their car insurance. That is also why people ride bikes. ...

... meseum and the Holy Ghost church. All with in the time and was buggered after that. Walking the streets we made our way to the fruit markets for a late lunch early dinner before going back to the hostel and Victoria leaving for the metro. Myself and another Aussie from Melbourne went to movie night and a few drinks in the bar down stairs, calling it a night just before ...

Two Good Friends and a Unique City

... it was slightly expensive. This too was a good choice! It was for sure the best blues music I have ever heard. The band only spoke in Danish, but all songs were in English, and some were even covers of songs I knew. It was a good time, surrounded by mostly older locals. We got a good taste of how the Danish dance also. It is much more folk-like than the intimate salsa styles I have been used to in Spain.

On Saturday, Cal and I got up early and rented ...

    I show up in a wheelchair, the room is booked as accessible, I get to the room and it has a bath. I go back and complain, They give me a room with a wheel in shower. How hard is it to get this stuff right the first time. Otherwise our stay was pleasant. The place has the feel of student accommodation, but everything is there and the internet is free. The little fat statues are very interesting

    Historical Traveler Reviews DGI-byens Hotel Copenhagen

    Filthy and Basic

    from

    I have stayed in DGI Byens over 2006 Easter holidays and was appalled by the low levels of hygiene of the room. The room's laminate wooden floor hasn't been washed in months; you could see other people's footprints and boot prints all over the place. The furniture around the room has not been dusted at all and you could see a thick layer of black dust everywhere as the hotel is opposite the train station. When I complained about the state of the room I was assured it would be sorted, but nothing happened so I'll be writing a complaint but in the meanwhile I want to warn other people.

    Basic but functional

    from

    Typical scandanavian style - basic but has excelllent facilities along with a great location. Not only is the hotel sited next to Central station but is also behind the main stop for long distance coaches (e.g to malmo, berlin, oslo). A five minute walk takes you in to the heart of copenhagen and to the Storget (pedestrianised street).

    Don't expect too much

    from

    Very basic hotel for the price, reasonable location, but not a lot of facilities and a bit uncomfy if you have to spend a long time in your room. Breakfast excellent, but again nowhere to get snacks or drinks if you haven't already picked them up before you go back to the hotel.

    YMCA????

    from

    I am normally good for selecting a hotel, but this time I got it wrong. When I entered the hotel lobby, which was very poorly decorated by Ikea look like a furnitures, I saw maniy kids in PJs!! Some were even holding a pillow...... I was confused. It was around 9:00PM but there was no one in the reception so I needed to wait until some one shows up, with those kids who sneaked out from their room. A women showed up about 10 min later but she was very moody and not nice.

    Not bad, but not great, either

    from

    Good location, withon walking distance of Tivoli and everything else in the area. Spare, clean rooms. Bathrooms are clean, but very generic and the shower in my room tended to flood the rest of the room unless I was in and out of there very quickly. The buffet breakfast was just OK, and tended to be better on the mornings I got there earlier. Free internet access near the front desk.

    Warning: if you are taking the train from the airport, this is a bit of a hike with luggage in tow, even if relatively close to the station, which is across from Tivoli. Make sure you have luggage with wheels!

    Great for the kids

    from

    Modern hotel, very good location near to railway station and right next to the bus stop for the Bus connection to/from Malmo Stirup Airport . Hotel guests have free use to the public swimming pool which is on site and is an unusual shape.Great for the kids who will also enjoy the modern type diving boards and climbing wall, My daughter throughly enjoyed it Rooms are confortable with modern furniture, good sized bathroom (Also a hair dryer for guests) Buffet breakfast included which is of high standard. Hotel little bit expensive but worth it just for the sake of having the pool and ideal for the bus stop and station. Very short distance to the shops and sights.

    Little more than a Travel Lodge

    from

    The hotel dresses itself up as "Scandinavian Minimalist" which is just an excuse to disguise the fact that it is little more than a Travel Inn /Lodge. The bathrooms are very basic and the water in the shower was luke warm at best. The mirrors (at least in the room I stayed in) were poorly located - one being in the back of the wardrobe and the other in the bathroom was too high. On the plus side it is very centrally located and convenient and the buffet breakfast is good.

    Great hotel

    from

    Very close to the train station and walkable to other areas. The hotel is very clean and "Scandanavian" The rooms are some of the largest I have come across in Europe for a moderate price. The rooms are modern and comfortable. I would recommend it to all.

    Great value

    from

    This is a very central hotel at reasonable prices (compared to other hotels in the neighborhood). I stayed there on July 16th. Rooms are small, decorated in a very modern way (think Ikea). You are within 5 minutes by foot from the railway station, which in turn is right accross Tivoli (if you go there and like meat, make sure you check out the Valhal Restaurant in the park).

    Great Hotel, very central

    from

    I stayed in The DGI-Byens hotel for valentines weekend with my boyfriend and the hotel was really clean, modern and soooo many facilities including swimming pools, restaurant, bar, gym, sauna, spa facilties. it was just great. when you walk outside the hotel it is only 5mins walk to everything in copenhagen city. id advise to get train straight from airport as the train is beside the hotel but there is not noise from railway.
