Travel Blogs from Copenhagen
After leaving Minatur Wunderland and re-entering the world of giants, our train journey to Copenhagen was probably the most bizarre one I think either of us will ever have.
There we were merrily sitting down on our journey from Hamburg when we heard a muffled announcement in German which roughly translated as; "we will be boarding in half …
... way back we took a slightly different route and stumbled across another impressive looking tower guarded by some well-dressed military folk complete with bayonets, and rather dopey looking bronze lions. The tower itself housed the crown jewels, but having spent the previous day in a castle and being relatively short of time, we decided to give it a miss. We then spent a little while wandering through the centre of Copenhagen. The city ...
... just smell the clean air there as everyone is on a bike and they have designated bike lanes that have their own traffic lights. To lock and unlock your bike it is almost like putting a key in the ignition and it's like where a gas tank would be on your car, but on your bike. Super cool. Denmark is also the first place to legalize gay marriage which is amazing. The Queen of Denmark smokes a lot and has a French husband who no one really likes and still can't really speak ...
... Age 25). In most specialized professions in Spain (doctor, lawyer, engineer), the "undergraduate" American idea is non-existent. They go straight to a graduate school. Although I can think it would be nice to skip out on four years of my education, I know these undergraduate years are invaluable to my life! I wouldn't change a thing.
I arrived in Copenhagen at 11:30pm after a three hour flight. Getting to my hostel was the most confusing thing I have done so ...
... they didn't report everything accurately- they thought that Helsingor was the capital of Denmark because it was a big nearby city, but it wasn't.)
One thing he kept pointing out is what in the building was original, restored, accurate, and incomplete. This is because the castle (like pretty much everything in Denmark, I'm learning) burned down. It was restored, although there are still original pieces.
One of the people important in the history of the castle ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Danmark Copenhagen
You get what you pay for!
Have read lots of complaints about the Hotel Danmark, but I have to say that in the times I have stayed there it has always been "acceptable". The location is fantastic (although the clock at the Radhus does get on your nerves), breakfast good and the rooms whilst typically small are always clean. You can pay a lot more in Europe and get a lot less.
My husband & I stayed at the Danmark Hotel this July. We were very happy with the location of the hotel as it is very central to everything but were very disappointed with the hotel fitout. There weather was hot & as the hotel did not have air conditioning so we had to have the window open. The noise at night was terrible & we consdiered ourselves lucky because we had been put in one of the "quieter" back rooms. The nearby cathedral bells chimed every 15 minutes until midnight & the traffic noise was considerable.
I realize that hotels in Europe don't generally operate at the same levels that most american ones do - that's part of the charm. I can usually adjust and make the best of any situation but not this time.
After reading the revies for this hotel I expected much much more. The hotel was a complete let down. Hotel positives: One free internet machine in the lobby, OK breakfast, great customer service, good location for site seeing. Hotel Negatives: NO AIRCONDITIONING, hotel located on extremly busy street so you can't even open the window for air! The beds are lumpy-they look like civil war beds at a museum except that the wood furniture looked like furniture from an outdated Motel 6. There was no hot water since all the guests apparently showered at the same time. My college dorm room had nicer decor. I heard all my neighbors coming and going from their rooms. The shower head is directly in the center of the bathroom and the drain is on the bathroom floor which means you stand in cold water while using the toilet or sink. The elevator is slow and will only hold one person with luggage. I heard many guests demanding to be moved from a room facing the street (superior rooms!) to one's facing the back courtyard (regular rooms), they could not take the noise from the street. Avoid this hotel. I've stayed at the Square hotel and it far exceeds this hotel even though the rooms are much smaller. (It also has A/C). Later I heard many people on my cruise praise the Marriot hotel.
We were here in August 2004 for a weekend after having booked a last-minute offer on the internet. We were very pleasantly surprised at the extremely friendly reception. The room was small but nice and very clean. The bathroom had recently been renovated and was very clean. Breakfast was excellent, varied and could be eaten outside in the small courtyard. An additional bonus is the proximity to all "important" places in Copenhagen such as the Tivoli and the Stroget (main shopping district). You can leave your car in their underground parking place (against a fee) which is a real bonus and spend all your time walking or taking a bus - everything is so near by. Highly recommended!
This hotel probably doesn't need another good review, but here it is anyway.
Charming staff- extremely helpful-- we came down at 4:30 a.m. to catch an early flight and found our taxi had already been ordered for us-- all kinds of neat things like that happened.
Our room was huge, and lovely-- we could see part of Tivoli from our window.
Great breakfasts, perfect location-- Tivoli gardens was 5 minutes away and as wonderful as ever.
Cannot wait to go back !
First Rate Hotel
Spent two nights at the Hotel Danmark in late November 2004. The location of the hotel was excellent, within walking distance of the Central Station and just along the street from the Radhusplatz.
Our room was small but clean and comfortable. The room was on the back of the hotel and was quiet.
Food for the self service breakfast was plentiful, with a seemingly unlimited supply of cereals, meats, cheese, eggs and a variety of breads. The tea, coffee and beer prices, served in the bright reception area must be among the best value in Copenhagen.
Finally the staff were helpful, effecient and spoke excellent English.
What can I say, this hotel was brilliant, a real find. A brilliantly placed hotel for seeing all the sights, a few minutes walk from the main shopping area, across the road from Tivoli gardens, a few minutes walk to the harbour areas and easy to get to from Central station. It is on quite a busy road but the traffic didn't offer any problems. Opposite the National Museum. Great service, nice clean smallish rooms with tiles bathrooms, everything you could want for a city break. Lovely appetising breakfasts on an eat as much as you like buffet breakfast with cereal, continental meats, selection of breads, olives, fresh fruit, yogurts, juices tea and coffee.
Hotel is OK, but overpriced for what you get
Stayed in this hotel for two nights in mid-June 2004. The location is great. The hotel OK, but you pay too much (1200DK per night in my case) for what you get. The rooms and bathrooms are small but workable. The staff was friendly and helpful. On teh down side, the hotel was quite noisy. Every day either housekeeping and/or in-hotel construction activities would wake us up too early. Moved to Hotel Maritime a mile or two away and got a similarly small room with bathroom for half the price. The Tourist Office located near the central train station booked the room for us at the Maritime Hotel and seems to hold the keys to some good room deals.
Hotel Danmark-Great Location and Value
We stayed at the Hotel Danmark for 6 nights in May 2003. The Hotel is rated ***, but because of the great central location and the wonderful buffet breakfast, I would rate it higher. The rooms are clean and comfortable--not flashy, but nice. The bathroom and shower was small but also adequate. The staff was helpful with tourist info. and quite friendly. I would definately recommend this hotel.
