... showed me last week. What luck, the only Danish movie I have ever seen, and the star of it walks into the cake shop I was in. We giggled to ourselves as he made his purchases and left discreetly.
We walked from the store to Nyhavn, which is a place that is on so many postcards. It lines the canals, and each building is a new colour. It was constructed by King Christian V from 1670 to 1673, and was definitely a favourite of sailors for a long ...
... told and the terms of debts changed as she was sold to different "trolleys". It was eye opening to hear a first hand story of human trafficking. We were supposed to take a tour of the red light district after this, however our teacher thought that after we heard Joy's story of trafficking we probably wouldn't want to go through the tour, and that it would make for a very long day.
We had class at 9:00 again, but had a break from 12:30-1:15 so that we ...
... train to go to Aquarium. It was very cool... and reminded me of Vancouver's, just not quite as big.
Tonight we met up with our fellow cruiser friends at an Italian restaurant for dinner - it was good to see our friends all made it safely. A half dozen of us headed over to Tivoli to watch the laser light fountain show.
... the bill? We got a nice surprise. In Denmark it's free. Ambulance ride, and hospital all covered. OK, let's get out of here quick. Then they also called us a taxi to get us back to the ship. Americans could learn a lesson from these people. We got into the taxi hoping he could find our ship, because our terminal just opened last week. They told us he would take Visa, but we had 200 DKK on us. When he got us to the ship the charge was 145DKK. I ...
... succession of animatronic examples of some of his more famous stories. These were OK but they didn't really do much, just made a few noises and whirred a bit as the story was narrated over the top. It is definitely worth a look if you have kids but it didn't really do HCA justice in my opinion.
Our next plan was to wander up to the Round Tower or Rundetarn (B+) which is the site of (I believe) Europe's Oldest Working ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Scandic Front Copenhagen
We stayed here for 5 nights in early September. We picked this hotel based on the location, the reviews we saw here, and the great price we got on Expedia. The expedia price was $248 a night...much better than the hotel was offering.
WOW. If you are going to Copenhagen, this is the place to stay. It's away from the crazy tourist-heavy areas and is on the water, only a block from picturesque Nyhavn and near the canal boat tours. It's a little pricey, but the rooms are modern and well done. I would definitely go back.
Having booked a deluxe seaview room at the Front and guaranteed the reservation with a credit card, my wife and I arrived on a Friday evening at about 10pm only to be informed that no rooms were available. No hint of an apology or explanation as to how this had happened was offered; simply a statement that we would have to go to the Hotel d'Angleterre, the Front's sister hotel.
We very much enjoyed our stay at the hotel. I can only reiterate the positive reviews expressed by other guests. The rooms were funky, great lighting and nice detailing. It was very nice to shower using the complimentary REN products. The free mini-bar was a great idea, but ours only contained 4 items! I guess expecting a full complement would be too much!!! The staff were very helpful, friendly and welcoming. I would reccomend this hotel to anybody who likes contemporary design in a young friendly setting. If you like your chintz and doormen go elsewhere. If I were to make any criticisms (and these are minor) I would say that it was often quite difficult to attract attention of bar staff or breakfast waiters.... 0nce you did they were great!) Also there was some building work being done on some rooms on our floor (5), so I would not rule out the possibility that not all rooms were upto the standard of ours.... check ahead is the advice I would give. It is not the most spacious hotel in the world but it is very well formed and I would definitely go back!!!
Super getaway spot, freshly renovated
Just spent a long weekend at the Front and was impressed by:
1. the extremely friendly and helpful staff, who helped us with restaurant bookings, taxi calls, and advice on walking and shopping in the central district
2. the nice rooms, nice and big by European standards. Brand new.
3. great location -- everything seemed to be walking distance
I would recommend this hotel for families as well as adults traveling alone.
I stayed at the Front for 4 nights -- and I could not possibly be more delighted with my hotel choice. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Copenhagen. I arrived at the Front at 10:30 from an overnight flight from the US, and my room was ready. The double bed had a feather bed, and two duvets individually wrapped in what felt like 300+ thread count covers. The feather pillows were wonderful. My room had a juliette balcony and in the morning I could open the door, assess the weather, and watch the folks in the small park out front. The 144-jet rainmaker showerhead was exquisite, the bathrobe was great, and so were the bath amenities. My room had two individual closets, and one double closet for more than enough storage room. The turn-down service each evening was lovely. The in-room mini-bar was free, and the staff was friendly and helpful.
I absolutely loved it!
I absolutely loved the 4 day stay. The hotel looks great and it feels even better. They have the best bed, the best shower, the best toiletries and wonderful robes. I just had to buy one for home. I loved the free minibar and internet connection and by all means do take advantage of the bicycle rental at the hotel. We bicycled all over Copenhagen 2 days in row. It's really easy to get around on a bike and much less tiring than walking. It is a wonderful hotel for couples. We are going to Copenhagen again in July and I just booked again. It is my favorite in Copenhagen. Only thing I would like to change is the breakfast - my husband missed the manly bacon and eggs feeling in more tradititional hotel (although you can order some), but I loved the fresh fruit.
Great new looks!
WOW...what a difference....I visited this hotel last year when it was Sophie Amalia - and it's a totally new experience!
The design is cool, contemporary and stylish. Service in the reception and bar/restaurant is great, though the food was a bit pricy - still very good!
The Bar was worth a few drinks, nice music and super cocktails - great for warming up for a night out. The rooms was classy, great beds and a shower I would die to have at home! The view overlooking the Opera was magnificient!
FRONT is in Front - no doubt about that!
Checked into this allegedly newly refurbished hotel but only a limited number of floors were finished when I arrived with a lot of noise and dust to follow.
Knowing that Danish hotel rooms generally are small, I booked a large room as I like my space and as I needed to do a lot of work on site.
Imagine my despair when I checked into a 18 square metre (194 square foot) LARGE room!?!
Furthermore, the refurbishment was only of surfaces and soft furnishings. Wardrobe, window panes etc were very only and in dire need of being changed. A bit of fresh paint would even have helped.
The staff are very courteous but obviously fully aware of their trouble with the extremely small room.
Sorry but never again!
