Copenhagen is the capital and most populous city of Denmark, with an urban population of 1.2 million people. It is situated on the east coast of Zealand and was originally a fishing village founded in the 10th century.
We took a hop-on hop-off bus from the port to the hotel and this was a bit of a struggle with our much inflated luggage. …
We awoke with the sound of interesting noises from human interactions echoing around the courtyard of the hotel - some obvious enjoyment happening!
Walked past the construction site for a metro station, down the main shopping/pedestrian/tourist strip to the waterfront, and on to the inevitable boat tour of the harbour and city canals. …
... Our Saviour Himself apparently sits atop of the golden globe, keeping an eye on the city.
I loved that, I think it was one of my favourite things here so far.

It houses about 850 residents, who apparently all know each other like family. They control who can live in there, though tourists can freely walk through. ...

Very pleasant room with an excellent bathroom. The area was not that great but then it is within walking distance of the central city. Don't be put off by the approach to the hotel which is not the best. Accommodation in Copenhagen is very expensive and this hotel is good value for money. The staff were also very helpful.
