Train to the top of Zealand to visit Kronberg castle and see Holger Dansk protector of Denmark. Legend says if Dennark is under attack - he will come alive to defend Denmark. Train trip takes 45 minutes. Crisp day - no wind even c though we are near the see. Across Orsund is Sweden and you can see Helsignor clearly. Ferries go back and forth - 5 …
Sunday sleep in - we had breakfast at 9.00.
Happy birthday Grandma.
Cloudy day but not cold - off to see the Little Mermaid. We set off on foot from our hotel down "Stroget" street (Shopping strip) via "Nyhavn" (Cafe/Restaurant strip along wharf) then down through the Royal Palace square to see the guards. Before we knew it we …
... I was really glad that I was able to check my big bag through to Berlin, so I only had my overnight pack. Asa and I got to know each other and talked about everything from travel to political issues in the US and Denmark. She was an au pair in New England for 1.5 yrs, so her English was fabulous. We went out to a neighborhood burger place that she had not tried. Mayo is a very popular condiment in the countries that I've been to, so far. It seems to be on everything! ...
... train journey from Copenhagen central and once again the train was all we have come to expect from mainland Europe. If you take this journey, I recommend sitting on the right hand side of the train and gazing out of the window to watch the suburbs, forests and picturesque costal views slip by.
From the train station, Kronborg Slot is a 15 to 20 minute walk at a leisurely pace along cobbled streets with clear views of the Castle itself, there is a bus ...
... champagne and ate my favorite pizza at Nyhavn while we waited for my parents to arrive. They met us at Nyhavn and we took a canal tour. The canal tour was great and everyone got the chance to see the little mermaid (I hate to disappoint everyone but it is less than impressive) to hear how goofy the Danish language sounds. After the canal tour we headed over to Tivoli the second oldest amusement park in the world. They had it redecorated for the Halloween season complete with ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ascot Hotel Copenhagen
Insgesamt ein großartiges Erlebnis
Für zwei Studenten auf Urlaub in Kopenhagen war dieser Ort perfekt. Das Personal war sehr hilfsbereit, das Frühstück lecker und die Lage großartig! Es gab kostenloses Wireless Internet im Hotel, aber Vorsicht, nicht in allen Zimmer konnte man das Signal empfangen und man musste dann in die Lobby gehen. Das Zimmer war sauber und das Bett komfortabel. Wir hatten dort ein sehr schöne Zeit.
Overall great experience
For two college students on vacation in Copenhagen, this place was perfect. The staff was extremely helpful, the breakfast was delicious, and the location was great! Free wireless internet is available in the hotel, but be aware many rooms do not receive a signal, so you often have to go down to the lobby areas for a strong wireless signal. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable -- we had a great time overall.
The location is really good, short walk everywhere. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the reception and breakfast rooms lovely. However the room was very stuffy (no air conditioning) and the bed was uncomfortably soft. The pillows were non existent and the decoration in the room was 80's stlye. I didn't mind the decoration but there is a nightclub nearby which is very noisy all through Saturday night. The bathroom was clean though and it was an adequate size room. I would imagine that this hotel is suitable if you only want location.
I was scared off from this hotel by other reviews, but booked it because everything under $500USD was full. I was pleasantly suprised. We were in the Ascot Apartments part of the hotel. The room was quite large. There was a small kitchenette. There was a room with toilet and sink, then a separate room for shower plus sink. There were three of us, so we had one large room with two beds and a small room with one bed. It was clean and staff was nice.
Nice breakfast but bad quality of rooms
The hotel is centrally located and easy accessed by public transport, for example from the airoport. The room however (at least the single room I have stayed in) was very small and dusty. I had to keep window open in rather cold whether, just to keep away the smell of dust. The benefits are nice breakfast and wireless internet included into the price of the room. Otherwise rather poor quality and disappointment regardless of rather friendly presonal.
After reading the other reviews I thought I had an idea of what I was coming to. Yes, and no. There's no doubt that this place is a bit of a weird mix of styles, and in need of some renovations.
Brilliant breakfasts,and centrally sited, but somewhat weird setup. The hotel management has taken over apartments as well as a large ex-bathhouse in central Copenhagen and has trouble managing it all. Everything freshly painted and refurbed, but poorly maintained. Rooms did not have additional pillows, blankets. Hotel instructions were absent in one room, duplicated in another. We asked for but did not get a nonsmoking room (though nonsmoking rooms are available in one wing). Our booking was not taken for all the period, so we were shifted halfway through our stay, from an 'interesting' penthouse apartment, with nice views and semi-public walkway/balconies, and no functioning lights in the living area or lift lobby, to a large double room with an interconnecting door to another suite - which was opened by a surprised other hotel guest! For a truly unique experience, you could enjoy this. For a peaceful stopover - you are taking a chance.
Decent value option
Common areas, breakfast room, breakfast and location are great. Guest rooms could stand a rehab. Also, our room was supposedly nonsmoking but was a bit musty. Currently a decent value option. If they did rehab the rooms it would be a very good hotel.
Well located hotel, but badly furnished, without air conditioned, my room had a view to inside patio, with old carpet on the floor, didn't like the bed, which had no sheet under the edredon. To get the picture: the bathroom door didn't close.
Too much money for so little quality.
Stayed there begining of August 2004.
