Made a weekend trip to Copenhagen on a Friday evening until Sunday afternoon.
It was quite easy to get from the airport into Copenhagen Central Station. There is a train that leaves from the airport regularly and is fairly affordable.
Copenhagen felt fairly quiet throughout the weekend, and it is really quite a nice place to visit …
... are of interest. Going down one side street we run into a woman who is also carrying her Rick Steves guidebook. None of us can understand why we are here looking at a bunch of fancy shops, so we turn on our heels and walk the other way. Perhaps the shopkeepers paid Rick Steves handsomely for this lane’s inclusion in the walk?
We double back to one of our favorite ...
... on board in time for sail away at about 3:45. We were tired from the long walk, but it was well worth it.
The highlight of the evening came when the ship passed beneath a very large and long suspension bridge that connects two of Denmark’s major islands. We passed underneath with very little clearance. I’m guessing one or two feet. Some of the passengers screamed as we approached, because from our perspective it looked like we were going to hit, but we sailed safely ...
I had completely forgotten New Zealand was named after one of the islands of denmark. copenhagen is very cool. the hostel I was staying at was awesome it had bean bags outside, they had free dinner and everyone hung out in the lounge /bar met lots of awesome people, this hostel was full of canadians and I finally found a fellow kiwi. copenhagen has this awesome relaxed atmosphere, it doesnt feel touristy and everyone is so friendly and speaks awesome english. ...
... wee bit red we are tonight. We finished the tour on the bus then got off at the stop closest to the shopping strip. After browsing the shops we stopped for dinner at a little alfresco restaurant. On our way back to the Hotel (we now have a better map) a chap got knocked off his motor-cycle just behind us. He was up almost as fast as he hit the ground but I don't doubt will have a few aches and pains tomorrow. ...

It was a little bit of a disappointment.
At first glance it seemed a little bit old, but not surprisingly as it was nearby the train station and a bit cheaper than the hotels you'll find near Nyhavn and the centre.
The second night we returned to the room and the showers had no hot water, and the sink was just spitting out dirty yellow water. The receptionist moved us, but that second room had dirty towels and smelled of cigarettes (the entire hotel has No Smoking policy). We ended up having to stay in a twin bedroom, when we'd booked a double.
The only redeeming factor is the continental buffet breakfast which is included in the price.
