... which we went in to see. The offices of Kings and Queens were reconstructed in there, or left as they were, and it definitely had some beautiful pieces of furniture. I enjoyed reading about the Kings, Queens and princes and princesses. They made sure to let you know of the lineage, so everything was written clearly, such as "King..., Queen Margarethe's father/great-grandfather" etc. I liked seeing the different styles of each person, and what ...
... was missing here in Copenhagen. I could really feel my cousin knowing he guided me here. It's amazing how inspiring a 6 year old can be especially with his love for Jesus and church. It's a great feeling. Afterwords, we came back to the kolligieum. I passed Amy on my way in taking off on a bike. As soon as I stepped inside I realize I left my keys in there and the door was locked. I didn't expect the church service to last an hour and a half or Amy to go anywhere. She said she was going ...

... the little mermaid & canal living areas. Also saw some real mermaids swimming around. The weather here is very warm & everyone is out to catch the sun. On the edges of the canals & in the parks people everywhere laying in the sun. After the cruise off we went on the buses around the city with the running commentary. You can get off & on when ever it stops & there are some very interesting sites. After mucking around on the buses & having lunch we ...
This morning we pulled into Copenhagen at 5 AM. Today we get rid of hopefully all the whiners. Today's plan is to get off the ship, and get on the hop on, hop off bus. At 9:15 we're off the ship, and on the bus. After looking at the map we come up with a plan for the day. The ride into Copenhagen was pretty uneventful, and we even enjoyed a little blue sky for a change. The first stop the driver informs us we have to change buses. It's OK we're ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Copenhagen Plaza
This is a four-star hotel adjacent to the train station and across the street from Tivoli. The single room I was given was relatively small, yet contained all the amenities I needed including a nice view of Tivoli. It's a much smaller hotel than I expected, essentially a boutique hotel, and the folks at the desk couldn't have been nicer. The breakfast was a top-notch buffet. To be candid, the location is both an advantage (I thought it was great) and a potential problem, given the noise factor, but if you close the window and turn on the a/c I found no significant street noise interfering with sleep. This hotel is probably not as deluxe as the Radisson SAS across the street, but it offers better deals pricewise--go through Sofitel's website and check out the internet specials. Overall I'd rate this hotel as excellent and good value if you can swing a special with breakfast.
Great hotel in a great location. Stayed here for 5 nights while in Copenhagen on business.
Decor in the rooms lovely and everything perfectly clean. Room service from the in-house restaurant Flora Danica was to die for, and breakfast room service each day was also great.
Staff were always very courteous and helpful.
My only two (tiny) gripes are that the rooms were way too hot and you couldn't control the temperature in your own room (the airconditionseemed to be turned off) and my room was on the railway station side so was noisy with the windows open.
In saying that, I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Not so great
Location is fine, staff cordial, rooms average. I asked if the room they had for me had a view and king sized bed. I was told yes to both....was stuck in a room with 2 double beds on the first floor with a view of the train station. These people are not so bright, this place blows.
Me and my girlfriend recently stayed in the Sofitel for 4 nights as we were offered some great rates and found dome dirt cheap flights to go with it. The hotels location is fantastic, it is directly opposite the Tivoli Gardens which have to be visited and a minutes walk from attractions like Stroget. There are some fantastic cosmopolitain restaurants and bars nearby including sports bars that play English footy, brilliant! The hotel is opposite the train station and near the main road but despite this, there is no outside noise due to the well glazed windows. The hotel is very comtemporary and has an elizabethian feel about it, we did not sample the restaurant as there are cheaper eateries in town but the Library Bar is very nice, although be prepared for the London prices! Copenhagen is definately worth a visit, it has a bit of New York and London about it, the hotel staff and the people in general are friendly and helpful and you instantly feel welcome. The Sofitel cannot be beaten on convenience.
My boyfriend and I had just stayed at this hotel mid-July 2004 for 3 nights. The hotel is in a great location, across the street is Tivoli and the main rail station is also across the street, which was very convenient for us(especially since we used the trains a lot when travelling from once city to the next in Europe). The hotel has a nice lobby and beautiful library bar. The most important thing, the staff was very helpful and nice. When our airline lost my boyfriend's luggage, the hotel was very helpful in trying to contact the airline and was persistant in trying to locate my boyfriend's luggage. The airline was no help to us, but the hotel concierge and staff was always willing to help. He finally got the luggage, 2 days later. The only thing I can say negative about the hotel is the shower. It's a very strange design and the water isn't strong enough. But overall, I would still give this a 5 star hotel. Copenhagen is a great, clean, fun city and a must visit, and Sofitel Plaza is a nice place to stay!
Review of Sofitel Copenhagen Hotel
Very convenient from airport to Central station, walk out the front of the station and the Sofitel was right there. No taxi or dragging your bags!.. People extremely caring and gracious. Rooms very large, twin beds, clean, minibar, hair-dryer. Buffet breakfast in AM very good. Bathroom was quite large, beautiful tile and granite etc. and had a huge shower area, but no tub. ALso, the room had a safe for valuables which was a plus. One thing I would have enjoyed in the room was a coffee/teamaker. Overall, hotel was great and we would certainly stay there again. THis hotels location can not be beat.
What a great place.... funky and old with lots of history. If you are looking for the traditional scandanavian design, this is not it, but comfortable and cosy. Rooms are smallish, but bed is comfortable and lots of closet space. High speed works great! The halls could use a coat of paint and carpets are a bit worn, but sort of adds to the charm of the place. The breakfast is delicious, bacon lovers, this is for you, Danish bacon is one of the best things about Denmark. MOST important, the staff is wonderful, service oriented, know a great deal about the area and are not afraid to help out with the smallest of details or questions. Right across the street from Tivoli Gardens and a 5 minute walk from "the Stretch", main shopping and eating area as well as next to the main train station. I would stay again and highly recommend.
My boyfirend and I had a great stay at this hotel for three nights.
Extremely convenient location. Across form Tivoli and the train station. Very comfortable ammenities. Delicious breakfast. Helpful and pleasant staff. Nice price from tourist bureau across the street.
Staff were quite friendly but a number of problems 1) Despite the fact that I booked a double room, because they thought I was only one person they tried to stick me in a single room when I arrived. As there were two of us the porter put us in one of the suites for the night. It was quite a pleasant room with a seperate living area but the glass shower curtain leaked water all over the floor and the towels looked liked they were about three years old. the bathroom in general was quite cheaply finished and not worth the c.6500kr rack rate per night.
