We’re quite looking forward to this trip. It was not a destination I had really considered before but Graham has an internet pal there who does a metal radio show and he had suggested we come over and visit sometime. We thought, why not? And the more I researched, the more things I found about Copenhagen that appealed to me. We knew it would …
... trying to get in early...we dump our bags at the attached chinese restaurant (for money) and head out around town til 4pm. However when I check my emails...I have no message...we try and ring, but am put on hold. Back to the hotel, we go on hold using the free phone on the wall...eventually establishing that my credit card had not been accepted, and we had no booking, plus they were fully booked! Not happy Jan! Pete let them know our displeasure ...
... One thing
we passed by on our cruise through this tiny region of the North Sea was "Der
Lille Havfrue" (The Little Mermaid), who was quietly and sadly sitting
on her rock waiting for Eric (I think it was before her "Part of Your
World Reprise"). Unfortunately she lost her shells somewhere, so sorry
about the immodest pic.
the ride was great, as was the rest of our day walking through the delightful
streets and buildings of such ...
... right through to exit the Arrivals area and go to the Emirates counter just before the exit doors from the terminal where we waited for other passengers eventually transferring to the Copthorne airport hotel. We were given dinner vouchers and had dinner whilst the hotel sorted out some rooms. Eventually got to our room, a large room with two double beds, looking a little tired, but comfortable. Finally in bed about 0030 local time, 2230 Copenhagen ...
... a bit of time in the forecourt taking photos, and then the guards were entertaining us. Suddenly everyone moved into formation, as it was time for the changing of the guard. The guards marched in, the crowd went nuts with photos etc. I did manage to get a good photo and some video footage, so was happy. Then the signal was given by the policeman to get closer photos so everyone just ran for it. We went the other direction and took a photo of the ...

We stayed at the Ibsens Hotel for a five night stay in May this year (May 2010). I had narrowed down the choice of hotels to a few and the Travel agent got a pretty good price on this one, about 930DKK for a double. The travel agent told me it was a superior but judging from the descriptions and price on the website I think it was a standard double (not a "small" double though i dread to think how small that would be). I don't mind that European hotel rooms are small and cosy because we're not in them much anyway. The room was not big but had enough room for us and carry on baggage though there would be room for a full size suitcase as well. There's a double bed and wardrobe, a desk and chair, a small television and another little table. The room is decorated in red and gold shades and was clean and pleasant.
Our room faced the inner courtyard so we didn't get any traffic noise. However, I think the restaurant kitchen or staff area was in the courtyard because you could hear people out there talking later in the night and the sound did travel or echo up the courtyard walls. We did have the windows open which would make it more noticeable but it didn't go on for a long time or late which is why i think it was from people working in the Italian restaurant in the hotel.
The bathroom was small with the basics, but the shower was all part of the room, with a drain in the middle of the bathroom floor. There was a curtain to draw around you so the rest of the room and walls wouldn't get wet. There's a small shelf in the corner over the toilet to put your shampoo or you can put it on /in the sink. There was a bit of mold around one spot by the sink, I have to say but other than that it was spotless.
The hotel has an environmental carbon neutral policy so that's nice in this day and age. There is no air conditioning in the rooms that i could tell but the windows open. We were there in May and it was cool out so heat wasn't a problem but it might be in summer. The bed was a bit hard for our tastes but not too uncomfortable overall. It was covered with a white duvet and coloured "spread" and we found the duvet warm so we just used the spread.
Breakfast wasn't included and was a bit pricey (150 DKK per person). There's a bakery on the corner and there are a couple of restaurants in the area that serve breakfast and brunch though they don't open until about 9:30 or 10. We actually did that most days, so we didn't have to get up too early and rush for the breakfast window. (See Cafe Klimt and Bankerat for reviews. We ate a meal and some breakfasts at both).
The hotel hallways seem a bit worn and the carpets do need replacing. There is a small lift. There is also free wifi in the hotel and bedrooms which was nice. You sign in with your name and room number.
The restaurant is an Italian place. We ate there one night but were not impressed (see review for La Rocca). It was expensive and the staff were less than courteous. There's a lounge in the hotel with free coffee/tea and there's a small bar as well. There's a computer available for a cost. The hotel prefers that you leave the key at the desk when you leave but it's staffed 24 hours. The staff were all very nice and helpful.
The location is quite good, just a couple of blocks from a major train/metro station, Norreport and across the road from there is the old Latin Quarter and just a few steps from pedestrian shopping streets and the Stroget. There are busses at Norreport Stn and also a few that go along a street one over from the hotel.
