Avenue Hotel Copenhagen

When I smelled hotdogs in the baggage claim area, my senses finally caught up with my body, registering that I was - in fact - in Copenhagen and exercising my answer to "So, what are you doing after Colby?". After getting our luggage (2 suitcases for the immigrant and 2 for the shopper), Mark and I tore off the baggage tags saying "BOS" in an attempt to dissuade customs from checking Mark's unclaimed and untaxed goods. We smuggled without problem and ...
... uncle, and younger cousin. It was so nice to feel their love back even though I was over 4,000 miles away. Towards the end of class we also did a Random Acts of Kindness field trip where we divided into groups of 6 and were given 100 Kr to go out and do nice things for people. We wrote nice notes for people and placed them in their bike baskets--on some I said you are beautiful, or smile it is a great day, or our mantra for our meditation "may you be happy, may you be ...
... angry shouts of, "Nein! nein!" from the hoary headed Germans a few rows back, no doubt tired of trying to enforce mutually beneficial rules on those from other nations. After a bit of shouting back and forth the situation was resolved, the South American continued to create her own strobe light show and the Germans fumed quietly. A reliable witness told us that in Zebrugge it had all kicked off dock side as the queuing method favoured by certain nationalities was ...
We are off walking again and head to a place called Christiana. This is the mini Amsterdam of Denmark. There are 3 rules you must follow once you enter.
No pictures, no running, have fun.
They are selling weed and hash quite openly. It was ok to see, but not a highlight. It is tolerated by the government even though it is considered illegal.
Its getting late in the day so we head back to the apartment. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Avenue Hotel Copenhagen Frederiksberg
My friend & I stayed at the Avenue Hotel in March. The hotel is about 15 min walk from the centre of Copenhagen, but there is a good bus link just outside (which goes all the way to the Airport) and there is also a metro station close by. Because you are not in the centre, the prices for this hotel are excellent for the quality of accommodation etc. The breakfast selection was plentiful and varied and the room, although not exactly large was certainly adequate for a weekend stay.
This Hotel was lovely. Nice clean rooms with lovely furniture and a nice plasma TV with cable. Friendly helpful staff. More than adequate buffet breakfast. Metro station around the corner and a bus stop right outside that will take you into town (5mins ride if that). Shops and restraunts close by if you fancy staying local. Only complaint would be the out of order elavator which didn't go down well when we left as we were on the top floor! I would definatley go back.
I have just returned from a weekend break at this hotel in copenhagen and cannot fault the hotel which has just been refurbished to a high standard. The only thing missing was the use of a lift which was being updated so had to walk up 4flights of stairs each time. If going to this city I would advise taking tea bags if you need an english cuppa as we were only able to get flavoured or earl grey. The staff were all very helpful as regards eating venues and bus times etc. The bus to the airport stops outside and costs 28k. The city square is about a ten to fifteen min. walk and by bus costs 18k. Only thing lacking when i went was good weather so hope you have better luck!
Loved the Decor
The hotel has a very modern, minimalistic decor which is very chic. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the hotel lounge is very relaxing. The complimentary wireless internet access is brilliant. The room decor match the rest of the theme but the plumbing was playing up a bit producing an unpleasant smell. Lift was out of action during our stay and breakfast is perhaps lacking in choice. They don't have a toaster to make toasts. However, it is a clean, modern hotel and well located for a stroll into the city centre and is also very quiet.
Great hotel ,great staff
Well located hotel, easy to get to centre (walk or bus). Very friendly staff, all of them.Very professionally run, relaxing decor. Great value. Will recommend to all our friends.
We chose this hotel after seeing it on the internet and reading other reviews. It is newly refurbished, very clean with lovely comfortable bedrooms and underfloor heating in the bathrooms. The special offer price made it very good value. The hotel is about a 15 - 20 minute walk from the centre of the city but there is a bus stop right outside the hotel where you can get a bus which runs every 20 minutes to central station and the airport. The staff are very friendly and helpful and all speak English. The breakfast was ok, a typical cold buffet. We would certainly use it on our next trip to Copenhagen.
Dates of stay: 2-4 December 2005
Stayed at the Avenue for 3 nights in a family room for 4. The room was hugh with pleanty of room for us all. Room and bathroom were very clean and well maintained.
Hotel for Two Great!
This hotel was perfect. It was about a ten minute walk from the train line and right on the bus route to the airport (45 minute ride). The hotel is being renovated and the rooms we stayed in were already finished. There were new fixtures and nice furniture. Lots of good television channels. A free breakfast was offered and there was a variety of items to choose from. I would definitely recommend staying here. The rooms were not the largest, but for college kids traveling or non-picky people, it would be great.
We nearly stayed here.
We got to this hotel having booked a package through out travel agent, only to be told that we had no booking.
But I thought I would write a review anyway.
At the time this hotel was undergoing an external facelift so was coverred in scaffold etc. On getting inside it was very cosy. Our booking had been messed up by our agent, but the staff at this hotel looked after us very well while they contacted our agent to sort
things out, and from what we saw, If we went back to Copenhagen again we would consider this hotel.
