Palace Hotel Copenhagen
Travel Blogs from Copenhagen
Final day in Copenhagen, one last chance to make sure we've done everything we set out to do. And potentially the last chance for a while to get some great Danish food and drink down us.
Monday's agenda consisted of visiting the oldest working observatory in Northern Europe and taking a canal boat trip around the waterways of Copenhagen. …
Another hearty breakfast was enjoyed in the hotel (complete with THE funkiest cheese slicer ever - yeah I know, small things amuse small minds etc..) we headed off across Copenhagen in search of the Zoological Museum.
I should mention before we get too into the details of the day that Sunday is a good day to visit Copenhagen. A lot of the …
Day 1 in Copenhagen actually consisted of not being in Copenhagen for very long. After attacking the buffet breakfast in the hotel we headed out to the train station and caught the train up to Helsingor. A return ticket sets you back about 200kr which equates to about £25. If you get a Copenhagen card then I think transport as far as Helsingor is …
There is little that is more exciting than arriving at a new city or in a new country, ready to go exploring. That feeling is made even more acute when the city or country in question is a doddle to get around. We landed at around 9:00pm local time and within an hour we were firmly holed up in the hotel room.
Trains every 10 minutes or so …
... statue, but we make it more interesting than usual with an added stop at a modern sculpture park where the “mermaid” looks more like an octopus.
Kronborg Castle is in the town of Helsingør, which is where the name Elsinore derives in the Shakespeare play. It is quite a long drive along ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsPalace Hotel Copenhagen
I've used Scandic hotels before, mainly in Finland when on business but I've stayed in a couple for leisure too. In fact I had enough points for this 3 night stay to be a freebie so you won't get any complaints at all from me. The room was spacious and comfy, the bar and restaurant very pleasant and not too expensive and the service was cracking.
This hotel is ideal as a base for exploring the city, it is next door to the Town Hall Square and is no more than 5 minutes wander from central station. The pedestrian area is directly behind the hotel and everything is close from here. Would definitely recommend!

Historical Traveler Reviews 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.
