I read several reviews about the location of this hotel. While it isn't in the center city, it was an easy walk for us.
After we checked in we visited the large shopping mall next door, but quickly decided to have dinner at The Harbor restaurant in the hotel.
We had the vegetarian entree along with a bottle of their house wine. Great food!
The staff seems helpful and I think the hotel is a good choice for us, walking to the attractions is a plus for us!
I have a few notes to add at the end of our stay. We found remarks about the bedding in the hotel to be true....the mattress are too soft. We felt like we were sleeping on a trampoline. If you're with a restless sleeper you won't get much sleep. Also the linens are some kind of synthetic blend...irritating to sensitive skin. This is a real shame because the room is lovely, these items need to be fixed.
Also, the staff helpfulness varied. We asked for some information about the local boat bus service nearby and the clerk said she didn't know anything. When we pressed her she said she would check. When we came back later she gave us a schedule for the boat going the wrong direction. Later we found our own schedules and even brought back a few to give to reception. Then the young man laughed and said, oh yes WE know...well obviously they don't ALL know.
While the location of this hotel can be a negative to visitors if you have a Copenhagen card you can use the train or the boat service back and forth, both were easy, and the river trip was lovely. Now if they fix the beds we'll come back!!!!

... and just taking in the culture. We found an awesome organic restaurant called BioMio that became our favorite place there. A cool and a bit scary thing we did was walk up all the way to the top of a church spire. Amazing view but we were up against the wall the whole time! All in all we enjoyed Copenhagen and glad we made the stop. Next stop: ...
... 8 a slice good! Scandinavia is so expensive. We browsed around a few more shops before meandering back to the main station and buying tickets and catching the train (barely) back to Copenhagen. Since Sarah was in town until Monday we bought Copenhagen cards, which are expensive but essentially give you free public transportation and museum/attraction admission. I think it was worth it in the long run. When we got home my international group (what was left of it since ...
... costs nearly $10 and forget about fast food. Since there is no such thing as a value menu here (at least for Americans) a BigMac meal here costs an equivalent of $12! However, there is always a way to beat the system. Street food that most people would be cautious of in other countries are very good here, Polish sausage stands occupy most metro stations and public squares and they are delicious. Also, because of the predominant Middle Eastern minority group, the ...
... cider, which is now my favorite alcoholic beverage. While we were at the pub, we met an Irish man who lived a few years in North Carolina. (I found that almost everyone has a connection to North Carolina... its kinda weird actually.) But he was the entertainment for the night and about 3 or 4 songs into his performance he said, "There are probably only 3 girls in this entire bar who will know this song. So this is dedicated to you, ...
