Kopenhagen: eine wilde Mische aus allem irgendwie.
Egal, wo man sich in Kopenhagen aufgehalten hat, es sah überall anders aus und man hat sich an jeder Straßenecke wie in einer anderen Stadt gefühlt. Mal wie in Münster (Fahrradfahrer) oder Flensburg (Nyhavn mit seinen Booten und bunten Häuserfassaden), mal wie in Wien (historische Gebäude) …
... less stressful with Ida taking my carry on luggage and Anne helping me find a place for my big one.
The train to Copenhagen arrived at 1:25pm. After alighting the train, we found (with difficulty) the place to buy the 'Copenhagen Card'- the card which will allow us to ride public transport and enter museums. We bought a 48 hour one that will start from tomorrow.
The place where we're staying is a girl's apartment we found online. It was on a ...
Back to Emmerys for our last breakfast and to stock up on good bread (with cheese) and Danish pastries for our train ride through Sweden. Then to the Copenhagen Central station in plenty of time for our 08:32 train to Oslo via Gothenburg with scheduled arrival time in Oslo of 16:52. And that was when the wheels fell off our travel plans.
One of the Swedish train companies, the one we were travelling with to Gothenburg, was on ...
... the old part of town, Petra and B want to climb the tower, I go to have a look inside the church and there is an extremely good choir in rehearsal so, together with a small number of others I sit down and listen. To my delight it emerges that 15 mins after completion of the rehearsal, exactly as with the choir I belonged to in Melbourne some years ago while living there to look after my old mum, the real concert is to start. This ...
... was, but they did have meal choices you could purchases. We are now on the train heading for Prague, another long journey (14 hrs). We have just crossed this very long bridge onto another of Denmark's Islands, it is kilometres long. Down the passage is a group of girls having a wonderful time, very loud and hopping into the grog. Sounds like a good night!! Narelle has just hopped off the train for her last smoke for the night as there was a 20 minute stop. Now we are off to sleep, we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Skt. Petri Copenhagen
We booked a city break in Copenhagen before consulting TripAdvisor - and having read the less-than-favourable reviews of the 5* Hotel Skt. Petri, we were a little nervous.
Definitely a nice hotel: very modern , scandinavianly minimalistic but it has a charachter. The Hotel is very centrally located which makes all sites within a walkable distance. The brkf was great: huge glass windows which makes the whole place look very light, airy and excellent buffet food. I loved their tea selection. The rooms are speacy, beds are wonderful and decor is minimalistic but very cool. bathroom is on a modest side, but they use fantastic Molton Brown of London products and that by itself is a big plus. The service was not rushed but no major complains.
Overall if you get 1050DDK price, do not hink twice - go for it, it is the best deal for your money in Copenhagen.
An excellent hotel, great location in a old part of Copenhagen with shops restaurants and cafes within easy walking distance.
Some reviewers have questioned the 5* rating. This hotel does not have a swimming pool, gym, golf course, bath butler, chocolates on your pillow a beauty salon, shops or any of the other clutter of the bland upmarket hotel chains. However, it does have style. I guess you take your pick.
Loved the place - Elevator music!!!
Stayed 3 nights 17 - 19th Sept 04, thought v stylish. Our room was upgraded without asking, we have never slept in such a stunningly comfy bed, had a large balcony overlooking the round tower, interior was very funky and stylish. Def a place for young couples who like cool things. Bar expensive 1 x wine 1 x beer £14, DJ on Fri & Sat eves, plays lounge music, loved the bar for people watching. Great location 5/10 min walk to tivoli, 2 mins from the main shopping area. Staff look like from a fashion magazine. Some guests very cool others weird bunch of middle aged business men.
Email direct for good rates, we did got great rate
Before flying out, I rang a few days before arriving to ask for a room well away from any "busy" part of the hotel to ensure we'd get some piece and quiet. I was assured that they'd made a note of this. Well, guess what? On our first evening, the hotel was hosting a function. We could see the flashing disco lights from our bedroom window. The volume of the music played ensured getting a good night sleep was not going to be an option.
A Little Mermaid? A Little Dusty More Like It..
While we did not find the hotel lobby and corridors to be dirty, our room was extremely dusty and on the small side. I would be interested to know exactly who gave this hotel a five star classification - it was extremely disappointing to arrive and find that it was not up to the standard of other five star hotel.
Please please please can someone let me know how on earth the lifts work?
And not to mention that in the hotel bar a large glass of wine and a beer came to the equivalant of £13.00!!!
Probably the best but very dirty
I waited at the check in desk for 5 minutes before any of the three check in staff decided to notice I was there. I actually had to tell them I was standing there with my luggage to check in. It did not get better. I walked down filthy corridors to get to the room. They had not been vacuumed apparently for days. Checking into the room I found that the bathroom floor was covered in hair. The housekeeping in this place has a problem. I was upgraded and moved room immediately. the corridors were still filthy with hair & crumbs on the carpet on another floor. I would not say that these small rooms are worth the price. All in all a dissatisfactory experience, although the staff were to their credit reasonably friendly and apologetic.
Style and chic at Skt Petri
An amazing hotel, that is swish and stylish. The rooms are large, airy and furnished with superb modern decor. Everything worked and appeared brand new! The meals in the restaurant may seem pricey, but you get huge helpings and are cooked to perfection. I would definitely stay here again.
Stylish central hotel in Cph at great rates
Very nice hotel in a quite and nice area in the centre of Copenhagen. Rooms with style, friendly staff and grat rates. We were a family of four travelling, and got a separate connected room for the kids for the half the discount price. This is a top pick!
New, clean, but not 5 stars
In looking for a place to stay in the center, Hotel Skt Petri popped up as a 5 star but only 1050 DKK/night. Room with very comfortable king bed, sofa and chair. Bath had twin sinks. TV, Internet connection (150 DKK), safe. Lobby is ultra modern. Breakfast was 130 DKK. Dinner was absurdly expensive, well presented, but not as tasty as it looked. Bar menu was acceptably priced. I cannot understand the Danish 5 star rating -- no fitness center, no swimming pool, not much of a business center, only one restaurant and bar. Good location, near train and metro and near shopping/sites. November 2003
