... pier. We managed to get a discount. Lucy went free and We paid a child ticket for Kieran. The buses had free wifi which was another reason to use them! We got off the ship just after 9 and the first stop was the Little Mermaid. It was quite busy but managed to get some photos. Kieran wanted to see Christiania as he has seen it in some bmx videos. Christiania is a free town which is self governing. It was an abandoned army base which ...
... was entitled “In the footsteps of Hamlet” and was excellently led by Horatio who told the bones of the story in about 45 minutes, taking us to the various places where, plausibly, the action could have taken place. It was a fun tour.
We had lunch at the Cultural Centre. By now there were lots of people out enjoying the warm, sunny holiday.
We caught a train 3 stops back Humlebæk to visit the ...
Well tonight we said goodbye to 'wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen' as the song goes. This was one of the prettiest places, and I think my favourite since coming to Europe. Today we utilised our 'hop on hop off' bus pass for the second day and took the opportunity to get off at a few places we wanted to spend a little more time at. We first had a bit of a sleep-in (8am), as the shops didn't open till 10am and the buses didn't start running till 9.30, but not at our stop till 10.00. ...
... Brussels Airport on our way to Ghent. My husband, Juan with a very serious face said "clearly not, there are two men pushing it from behind." So for the next two hours as we slowly jugged past town after town the fable only grew of what was outside.....maybe there was a zebra trotting just outside in the cold Belgian night....or maybe there some other wonderful thing just hiding behind the corner waiting to be discovered.
... sum of about £20 each all-in. Delightful.
Full of lunch and now short on time we headed over to Ny Carlsberg Glypototek (B+ - but with substantially more to see). This is an art museum built around the collection of Carl Jacobsen who was son of the Carlsberg brewery founder. Although we only ended up with half an hour in there we found plenty of interest and more than a few reasons to come back here and get the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Fox Copenhagen
A piece of art...
The hotel is great and very different from other hotels that I stayed at. The other comments about this hotel are completely wrong - because Hotel Fox opened in may 2005 - and that means, it wasn't even open yet when those comments were written.
The hotel is a very friendly and relaxing place. The rooms are so special and I just loved staying in room no. 302. The atmosphere there were soothing and energizing at the same time. And it was clean...
This was a nice, reasonably-priced hotel in the centre of Copenhagen, within walking distance to the main shopping street, many attractions and numerous bars and restaurants.
A Cool and Wild Hotel
Fox is a wild hotel...... actually "Hotel" isn't quite the right description for it. The rooms are very cool. The small rooms are perfect for kids. They are like a tree hut or something.
The larger rooms however are very cool. The Lobby looks like NASA. I stayed in room 101. The bed was great and I have some of that artists work featured on the walls - so it was quite uncanny they gave me that room. With so many great hotels in Copenhagen, we didn't know where to begin to take our kids on a holiday. Thank god we stumbled upon Tablet Hotels website, which featured some of the best and interesting hotels on their very beautiful site. Their choices of hotels were exactly what we were looking for.
For only 120€ a night, this was a very stylish place to sleep. And the breakfast was superb (a selection of tiny sandwiches on delicious fresh bread, croissants, danish, real yogurt with fresh fruit, tons of juices, and coffee or espresso). My room (N°311) was smallish, but no worse than any other European hotel room. The staff was young, hip and low-key.
We stayed here for about one week and were really looking foward to it!! We thought it would be a fun experience. Copenhagen itself was a great experience!!! But Hotel Fox left something to be desired. On the plus side, it's in a great location! Very close to the pedestrian mall. But the place reminds me of an old college dorm converted into a hotel. If that's what you're looking for, then this is the place for you.
After a 2 week journey and our last evening abroad we were looking forward to a fun and funky stay at the Fox. At what amounted to $200/night for a "large" room, we were incredibly disappointed. There were a number of rooms to choose from when we arrived-while the selection was difficult the receptionist recommended a room on the top floor which was interesting since my husband and I are both tall, we had to bend over each time we needed to access the bathroom because of the sloped ceilings. Upon accessing the bathroom, I was initially impressed by the amount of mold on the sealant in the bathtub. Later that night about 3 am, we were impressed again by a loud and strange gurgling from the bathroom-we both looked at each other and laughed since it sounded like our bathroom would soon disgustingly overflow. Overall, we felt like we were staying at a friends place in college-a place that was 'hip" and "funky" but not so clean and not so functional.
It all started so well. A welcoming reception, a convenient room in which to leave our bags, an upgrade to 'large' as medium-sized rooms had all been allocated.
Good to visit, but don't sleep here
The Fox is indeed a very interesting hotel with some creative design at work.
Alas, the rooms are very small (I even had a "large" room!) and have no aircon. So at night one can choose between keeping a window open and not sleeping due to the heavy traffic outside throughout the night, or keeping the window shut, still hearing the traffic and lacking air.
The bathroom is OK, again very small, no soap, but nicely designed.
The staff is young and very friendly, albeit not always very well informed, still a big plus.
I would not stay here again unless I was not planning to get some sleep overnight.
Staff was friendly, available and mostly young. The whole hotel was nicely designed! The lobby with it's loungy chairs and neat bar/reception counter, the carpet on each floor's passage ways with a different colour and design, etc.
My husband and I spent 4 nights at the Park Hotel in September, and we were really pleased with our choice. The staff were very friendly and helpful, buffet breakfast fantastic, rooms clean and comfortable and all a stones throw from City Square. Copenhagen is very expensive, but we felt that this hotel was very reasonable compared to other hotels especially as it was so central to everything.
