The story of the world’s city of bikes
The day started off with the usual warmth (or lack thereof) and windiness of Copenhagen with a temperature of about 60 degrees. We wanted to catch the 10:30 bike tour with Mike near Orsteds Park, however we woke up a little late due to falling asleep heavily from our dinner and drinks last night …
Copenhagen and Helsingor Day 4
Today we woke up slowly after tiring ourselves out biking yesterday, and decided to head out to the city of Helsingor on the northern coast of Zealand in Denmark. Helsingor is a quaint little town which contains the famous Kronborg Castle, the castle of Shakespeare's Hamlet. We walked over to the Norreport …
We rolled out of bed to walk to Christianshavn, a town just right next to where we are staying. We wanted to get some Danish brunch from Loven's Bastion but were completely denied since it was a Saturday and all tables were booked. We then decided to go to the most famous pastry shop(according to our tour guide) in Copenhagen – Lagkagehuset. …
We arrived in Copenhagen around noon. We took the driverless train from the airport to a station near our hotel, which took only 20 minutes. We set out to Danish Design Center as our very first stop in Copenhagen. We walked here through the oldest pedestrian path in the world-Stroget. Tons of shops occupied this street from luxury brands like …
We started our final day with a hour long canal boat tour covering some of the hot spots of the city - which was a bit chilly - but a good way to get your bearings of Copenhagen.
After the tour we made our way to Vor Frelsers Kirke a 17th century church. We climbed to the top of the spiral tower which gave a panoramic view over the city …

Historical Traveler Reviews Copenhagen Strand
Reserved the hotel over Wonderful Copenhagen (-------), who have very good rates without extra charge. Paid 340 Euro for 3 nights, when the nearest offer around was 400 Eur!
Avoid this one!
The rooms are tiny, though standard is ok for what you pay I guess.
I don't like the way the staff dealt with me as I arrived late having booked a non smoking room, though they only had smoking rooms left. Three of my colleagues also had to change rooms for different reasons.
I am not going back here if I have a choice.
We have stayed in worse 4 stars and comparable 5 star hotels! The location is excellent right next to Nyhavn and in 10-15 minutes you can walk to the Stroget shopping area. Splendid reception area and internal fittings. Quite small rooms but who cares, they were absolutely lovely with an amazingly comfortable bed and superbly furnished (no tea/coffee facilites or safe but this is a 3* officially I suppose) Small but brilliant marble effect bathroom (water tends to lie on the front of the top of the sink basin so we had to wipe it down to prevent trousers/skirt getting wet by standing too close) An extremely substantial breakfast was served from 7-10 in a very smart large breakfast room (only spoilt by occasional loud-mouthed business men on mobile phones - who cares about your 'important' deals anyway!) Overall, a luxurious 3-star, bright, comfortable and modern. We've stayed in other hotels in Copenhagen and I don't think we'd need to look elsewhere now that we've discovered the Strand.
Not far from Nyhavn (3 min walk), and in a decent location, I'd recommend this hotel. It's pretty easy to walk to most of the sights (the Hotel Angleterre for instance is a 5 min walk away, and from there, you can get to Stroget and most sights within 10 mins walk). Watch out for the single rooms though, a little small and poky. Room facilities are fine though and judging by how busy it is, I'm not the only one who would stay here again. Run and managed competently by Copenhagen's Arp Hansen hotel group. No restaurant though, but check out an interesting Mexican restaurant further down the street towards Nyhavn - great decor, theme and menu (danish text only) although some dishes are pricey.
The Strand is great
Had a great two day stay at The Strand Hotel on July 27 and 28. The room was small but after 17 days on a cruise ship, it was more than adequate. The staff was very helpful and the "continental" breakfast excellent, very tasty and more than enough food. Overall, a very well run hotel and a great value.
Just got back from Copenhagen last week, WOW, wonderful city..and the Danes are so friendly and laid back, it made me proud to be part Danish. I stayed at the Strand, and was really happy with the accomodations..The hotel is on a quiet street adjacent to the canal..The Nyhaven canal is a short walk and that is where you can find a ton of places to dine or just sit and relax. As you walk down into the hotel you are welcomed by a very pleasant and helpful staff.. The lobby is nicely decorated and very comfortable to hang out in for a drink or cup of coffee..The breakfast buffet in the morning is quite huge and a good way to start your day..The room was nicely decorated and of adequate size, and always made up very timely and always looked fresh upon return. Would definetly return to the Strand, plan to visit Copenhagen again, did I mention it was great.. Just a note over the bridge is Christianhaven, short walk, and directly across from the Christianhaven main train station is a wonderful bakery, yumm great pastries and bread...a definite stop on your trip...
Good for a city break
Travelling on business, found the Strand hotel very comfortable and well located less than 10 minutes walk from the main restaurant/ pub district, the Nyhaven.
My main complaint was that the shower refused to work for the duration of my stay, despite repeated complaints to reception.
The rooms are compact, but comfortable and very clean. There is no restaurant in the hotel, but the recommended Persian restaurant around the corner is quite good, and as I said, it's near lots more.
Just back from a week at the Strand. I loved the location, a couple of minutes from Nyhavn and an easy walk to Amalienborg. The room was quite small but was filled with natural light and had a small balcony so it didn't seem it. Spotless bathroom with lovely fluffy towels. A very extensice breakfast buffet plus quite a large sitting area where you can get coffee, drinks etc. I assume that it's 3 star rating reflects the fact that it doesn't have a restaurant because in every other respect it was on a par with many 4 star hotels I've stayed in.
Recently returned from a four night stay at the Copenhagen Strand Hotel. Hotel is located in a converted warehouse building in a very quiet section near the harbor area (approximately 5-10 minute walk). It's a little further walk to Stroget, Tivoli, and main train station but very walkable within 15-25 minutes, depending upon your pace (would not recommend walking to the hotel from the train station with baggage however).
The Strand is a great hotel in a quiet location overlooking the waterfront. I stayed in September 2003. Room was average in size, stylish, comfortable and spotless. Ensuite bathroom was modern and luxurious. My only complaint was that the bed was too soft. Public areas are well presented and breakfast room was also attractive with exposed original brickwork. Generous buffet breakfast. Helpful and efficient staff. Clientele tends towards business travellers and international tourist couples. Some walking is required to reach the main shopping area, but the compensation is a calm location away from traffic noise. Citybuses run direct to the airport from the bus stop by the bridge, about a five minute walk away. Overall a very good choice for a stay in Copenhagen, offering much better value than many other more expensive hotels.
