Travel Blogs from Copenhagen
Viking Museum, world's best restaurant 2010 (Noma) with Ben Parker, purchased a couple of previously longlost can openers.
So Jamie and Josh's epic, wonderful, spectacular tour of Europe has unfortunately come to an end. Right now we are packing and posting our last blog with frowns on our face. Tomorrow at around noon we have to hop on the plane and head back to reality, and although we will be traveling for around 20 hours we will be home about 8pm California time. …
... politely. We headed across the road to the Hotel du Nord..where the real lady at reception found us a room, breakfast included for only a few shekels more. Whew! Happily checked in, and put our feet up after our afternoon's wanderings.
We had checked out Andersen's patisserie, wandered along the main waterfront, seen the running leg of Copenhagen's Iron Man contest, seen the Black Diamond (Library building): the new Royal Library building, the ...
... place. We had lunch at the cafe of a
design school that Cecilie went to for a week-long workshop or something, and
it was delicious! The thing I had was a traditional Danish dish, and was called
"Christians ø Pigens Kryddersild," which was pickled
herring with capers and cream sauce. The herring (which of course is the fish
that the Knights Who Say 'Nee' used to cut down a tree :), was marinated in
some sort of nutmeg seasoning, and it was delicious! I ...
... that were waiting to be changed. Suddently everyone else realised they were there and came over too. I had enough of the crowd at this stage and we moved on, but the palace was beautiful.
It was interesting to imagine how life had changed for mary and how she gave up her Australian life to come and be a royal. She appears in the museums, and on stamps and magnets and the wedding was in 2004 so it’s been quite a while now. She seems ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Imperial Hotel Copenhagen
I am just back from staying at the Imperial for 5 nights. Although very pricey it was worth it compared to the other Hotels we seen. Staff were very friendly and helpful, rooms were not enermous but were still a good size, bed was very comfortable , breakfast was very good for a european hotel. Rooms were cleaned very well every day and the air conditioning made the heat bearable. Only downside was that the hotel bar was very dear for drinks. But would visit again . Disagree with other comments that the hotel was shabby. Location wise it was very central to the shopping areas and Tivoli all within a 5 minute walk.
We arrived early thanks to Easy Jets flight times and were not only surprised that we could check in at 11am, but were upgraded to a room in the newly refurbed area as our room wasn't ready. We didn't eat at the hotel so I can't comment on that but there is a nice cosy little bar area in the lobby.
I recently (May 4th) spent one night at the Imperial, and was a bit worried by earlier reviews that states that the room quality is getting a bit old/worn. Fortunately we were assigned rooms on the 1st floor, which were newly renovated, and all rooms were quite nice. The bathroom also looked fresh, and clean! One drawback here, though, was that there's no shower curtain (just a tiny glass door that doesn't help much) so the bathroom floor gets quite wet. Luckily there was plenty of towels to dry the floor with...
Muy bien situado para acceder a todos los lugares de interes de la ciudad.El autobus de llegada y salida desde el aeropuerto tiene parada cerca del hotel.
Habitaciones amplias al igual que los baņos.A nosotros nos asignaron una habitacion de ejecutivos cuando nuestra reserva era de doble estandar.
El desayuno muy surtido se sirve en un jardin interior con fuentes y plantas.
Hay bicicletas a disposicion de los huespedes para poder recorrer la ciudad.
Este muy cercano a la estacion de tren y al parque de atracciones Tivoli.
Spent four nights here during unseasonably warm weather. The rooms are tired and shabby but very clean. Our room was on the fourth floor and even though it didn't face the main street the area was very noisy during the the night, especially friday and saturday night. We were told it was the drunken Swedes coming over for the weekend to take advantage of the relaxed licensing laws!! Unfortuantely, there was no air-con so keeping the windows open was a real necessity.
My girlfriend & I stayed here for three nights & found the hotel perfect for our needs & in a convenient central location. Our room was on the 6th floor which faced out to the back of the hotel (no great view but we didn't go to look out of our hotel window!). The room was very clean & adequately sized with a large bathroom, no complaints.
We (2 couples) have just spent 3 nights at the Imperial, it is very clean and well kept although we think the rooms could do with a "spring clean" and modernising as they are a little dated. The staff were very pleasant and helpfull( 2 or 3 could spend a few more days at the "charm school") !!Central location, and easy for the main line station, a 30 min. train ride to Sweden (Malmo) is well worth while.Take plenty of Krona as Copenhagen is not cheap, especially the food and drink.
We've just got back from a great 3 day trip to copenhagen, thoroughly recommend it. We stayed at the Imperial (listed as 4*) although the room was a bit dated and basic. The lobby and bar area were good and my wife had the best pina colada ever there! Breakfast is served until 10.30am although should you arrive after 9.30 do not expect much choice or service as this is a predominantly business hotel where all the best stuff goes well before 9.00am, including the service! That said it was adequate for our purposes as we wanted to be out of the hotel as much as possible to experience the city. The hotel is located centrally within easy walking distance of Central station and Tivoli gardens. In fact we walked everywhere including The Mermaid and the Carlsberg factory. If you don't mind a walk it's a great way of seeing the city and there are plenty of things to break up your day. As for restaurants we would highly recommend Frascati (part of Grand hotel), Vesuvius (nr Stroget) and Cafe Ultimo in Tivoli gardens. All of these are less than 5 minutes from the hotel and cost £60-£70 for two for a high quality meal with wine and coffees. Please remember to pay for everything in CASH as many places charge alot extra to pay by credit card. (eg Vesuvius wants an extra 4.75%)
We returned today Feb 16 2005 from a 3night stay and consider the Imperial the best value we have ever had in Copenhagen where we have stayed previously on numerous occasions.We wanted to see our latest grandchild.The weather outside was blowing a blizzard as we arrived late evening.The sunny receptionist by name (I think)Shiraz Raja met our request for non smoking,quiet room with a key to an excellent room on the 6th floor.Roomy with easy chairs all facilities in good order and change of linen every day,The breakfast and evening restaurant are first class and we can heartily recommend this hotel on the basis of our experience.Add the bonus of the Imperial being next the Westerport station where we were able to take a train every 15 mins or so.
