... recently on the green light district. Christiania was so colorful and vibrant with so much unique architecture and graffiti everywhere. Our tour guide told us you can basically do whatever you want as long as your neighbors don’t mind which is evident at every turn. Even the architecture is unique. They don't own their own homes so any money that they put into it is just to make it better before the pass it along to ...
... time. I guess this makes me more motivated to return,
and return I shall!
following day, we before I signed out of Danish territory, we all five went to
a museum, to tap into the Viking roots of that part of our family. How cool! We
got to see quite a lot of artefacts, play a Viking game, and coolest of all,
dress in armour. It was a great experience and was perfect before I left for my
next stop. I learned a lot, mostly that I'm glad ...
... 2. I would give RCCL a better rating than Princess for the food. Princesses food seemed directed toward American tastes, whereas RCCL was Mediterranean to cater for the majority Italian and French passengers. LOTS's dining areas were better laid out with more space between the food counters. My only criticism of the LOTS fare was that there were few sandwiches at lunchtime, whereas Princess had about four alternatives. 3. A big negative to me was the layout of the ...
... a small island fort more appealing than those across the flat city. Announcements are only in English with the predominant nationality on board American. We went to Anytime dinner at about 2000 in the Da Vinci Dining room (deck5) and were surprised to find a queue with pagers being handed out with the message that it might be a 30 minute wait. We decided to check out the cafe on deck 15 and helped ourselves to a seafood entree. We had ...

We reached winnie’s hotel and that’s when I realised that it was probably the last time I would see her for quite some time, and who knows when we would see each other again.
We went home a bit sad but very grateful to Winnie, for the amazing time that we shared in Copenhagen. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Scandic Palace Hotel Copenhagen
The previous review is 100% accurate. The place is a dump. No AC, broken furniture, stained carpets, threadbare linens, etc.
Acabo de llegar(junto con otras cuatro personas) de un viaje de 15 días por el norte de Europa. La última etapa: Copenhague.El hotel Palace donde pasamos 4 noches nos amargó la estancia en esta ciudad.Se trata de un hotel muy bien situado pero decadente y en un estado de mantenimiento deplorable: muebles viejos y destartalados, agujeros en las toallas y en la moqueta, papel pintado descolorido, despegado y con manchas de humedad, MANCHAS ENORMES DE SANGRE en uno de los colchones que nos tocaron en suerte, en el resto MANCHAS DE PISES, una escarpia detrás de la puerta del baño a modo de toallero, habitaciones sin hacer a las 5 de la tarde. En fin, si pretenden alojarse ,y pagan por ello, en un hotel de 4 estrellas como está catalogado éste, no se les ocurra ir al Palace de Copenhague, sus instalaciones y servicios son de un 3 estrellas y malo; por cierto el personal de recepción al que presentamos nuestras quejas, antipatiquísimo y muy poco profesional. No vayan!
Sleep on a park bench, instead of staying here!!!
The hotel was filthy. The furniture was so dusty that I wrote my name on it. The view was the adjoining building's roof. The bed was hard. When I saw the hotel, I tried to cancel my reservation and get my money back. It was a prepaid reservation, and the hotel would not refund my money. We stayed. We could not get another room. We were leaving on a cruise the next day and all hotels were full. We paid $248 before taxes for one night in this "dump." If we heard the person correctly (and we believe that we did), the person after us, a Denmark resident, paid the equivalent of $89 USD. for the same room. Do not stay here!!!!!!!
All that can be said of this hotel is that it is in a great location. But from a dingy lobby to ancient elevators, the real surprise is the miserable condition of the rooms - and we were in one of their "upgrade" rooms! Dirty carpet, frayed upholstery on the armchairs, peeling wallpaper, peeling paint, and windows that are held on by damaged hinges. Not what we expected from a purported Le Meridien Hotel that claims to be 4-star and that charges 1500 dkk per night.
What a mess !
There was an overflow of water on the bathroomfloor when drained the bath. We had room 434 witch was awfull. We have been al over Europe but we never stayed in such a poor place. This is not a 4 star hotel, this hole is not even worth 1 star. The good point: the staff were friendly and helpfull. Breakfast was alright, but not more than that. We stayed 4 nights. Actualy, in my opinion, this is not a hotel, but rather a place where a human beeing can survive. They use the name MERIDIEN, while they are nor really part of the group yet. Only after renovation works it should be a MERIDIEN hotel. Some of the receptionists say that the works will take 6 months, others say that they will only start within 3 years.
A very poor hotel
I have just stayed 1 night at the Palace Hotel in Copenhagen. I agree with the previous comments regarding how poor this hotel is. I am a Platinum Starwood member and I was upgraded. The room I was given was large but very old, poorly maintained with broken furnitures and an average bed. The soundproof was so terrible that I could enjoy the noise from Copenhagen downtown all night long! The service was moderately courteous and friendly. This hotel carries the Meridien label (now part of Starwood) and prices the rooms accordingly but it does not keep to the reputation of a Meridien hotel. I will never stay there again.
personally I prefer modern convenience over Old World charm.
I checked OUT after one night in the supposed four star "Palace" Hotel. I nearly cried when I walked into my room. Horrible cigarette smoke smell, and even though I asked for a non-smoking room, this was all they had, the "Dame Judy Dench" room, which I am supposed to believe is an ambassador room? Gross. There was only limited pay internet access and no wireless access. The room was really run down, the TV was horrible (all I wanted was 5 minutes of news), and the plumbing was all messed up--the water pressure very low, it took a half an hour to fill the tub half way, and the tiny sink did not drain, it looked as though the bathroom had recently been redone, but they didn't fix the infrastructure! I could go on, but you get the picture...
This can not be a 4**** Le Meridian Hotel
We stayed there for 4 nights, and when we arrived we were first shown a small terrible room against the backyard. After discussions with the front desk, we were shown an ambassador room wich costed DK 400 per night. We were trapped, could not even think of choosing the small room, and had to pay. This is definately NOT a good hotel, the only thing must be the location.
Not a palace but a nice hotel
Nice hotel but not more than a 3 star hotel i think. Old with little uppgrades trough the years. The rooms were not properly cleaned. Things in the room fell apart when touching it such as wardrobe-handles, heating, windows.... But very nice service, got a double bed without paying for more than 2 single beds. Very good breakfast buffet. Nice location. Will stay there again if getting a nice price.
If you book the hotel for a luxury stay you willl get disapointed, but as a weekend stay its ok.
