Radisson BLU Royal Hotel
Travel Blogs from Copenhagen
We have survived our first full day in Copenhagen ... jet lag has not set in yet!! Our room is very spacious and clean. The breakfast buffet is awesome!! Enjoyed the company of a nice couple from High River, Alberta. After breakfast we walked down Stroget ... a car free zone in the centre of town and is the longest pedestrian only shopping area in …
At last, I have a chance to stick my toes in the Baltic Sea. Behind our hotel, there is a path lined with tiny painted cottages and after breakfast, we take a walk along the beach. Although the air is brisk and the water, cold, four Swedes and one Labrador Retriever are swimming.

We departed Berlin this morning. It was a sunny morning and we drove through northern Germany to Rostock for the sea crossing to Denmark. We passed by wind several wind farms and at the coffee stop saw the interesting sight of one of the blades on the back of a very long truck trailer. it was huge! The ferry crossing took just under two hours. I …
Jetlag sucks. Can't sleep at night, and we end up sleeping most of the day. We finally wake up and make it out around 2 or 3 pm, great for starting our honeymoon. Walk through the city centers, old antique buildings, and people smoking everyone. Totally European. We froze our asses off. Very, very cold and windy. We went from coffee shop to coffee …
First off, hungover. Too much Wine and Tequila
Morning was hell. Such a horrible hangover, even though Copenhagen was boring, and we wanted to get to Amsterdam, we wanted to stick around another night just to sleep. Unfortunately, there was some type of convention, so literally, the whole city was booked out of hotel rooms. Who goes to …

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson BLU Royal Hotel Copenhagen
Stayed 4 nights in Dec 04 here and I certainly agree that the hotel is in a great location - right by the train station and the Tivoli and within easy reach of main shopping areas.
I stayed here the weekend Tivoli opened in 2004 and it was just lovely. I had a corner suite with windows all of the way around overlooking Tivoli! Service was very friendly, the decor was LOVELY and having breakfast on the top floor was just amazing!
Highly recommended - woudn't stay anywhere else in Copenhagen!
Have just returned from a five day visit to Copenhagen. We stayed at the Radisson SAS Royal Hotel and thought it was fantastic. We stayed in a Royal Club Room with a wonderful view over Tivoli and Central Copenhagen - worth every penny. Breakfast was included and we ate in the roof top restaurant. The room was one of the best we've stayed in anywhere - spotless clean with comfortable feather beds. The hotel was centrally placed within walking distance of all the major sights. Must admit we walked to The little Mermaid and then got a bus back! Had a look in the Reception areas of a few of the hotels around the area and all looked much as other reviews on the site have stated - The Palace and Sofitel seem to be in dire need of refurbs but The Square and Skt Petri look new and clean. We were specially impressed by The Skt Petri.
If only all hotels were this good
A really fantastic hotel: elegant, comfortable rooms; a gorgeous lobby and bar; professional staff and a view to die for. We were offered an upgrade for a bit extra which we took - and we were really glad we did. We had an even nicer room but the real bonus was being able to have breakfast in the rooftop restaurant which was excellent and had the most amazing view across the whole city. I'd stay again in a flash.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The hotel was very stylish, the rooms were clean, spacious, and we had a great view over the Tivoli gardens. The hotel has a very good bar, a little on the pricey side but no real difference with the rest of Copenhagen. The Hard Rock Cafe is opposite the hotel, and the 'city centre' is about 5-10 minutes walk away. Hotel staff were very helpful and friendly, a great hotel all round.
This is a large, busy, tourist hotel located one block from Tivoli and the railroad station, about 4 blocks from the Walking Street, Stroget. the rooms were Danish modern, very compact but good beds and clean. The price was reasonable and included a nice breakfast. We were able to get a senior rate which was about $175which included breakfast, taxes and service. The staff was extremely helpful except for one concierge.
Recommend without reservation
Our 2 bedroom suite had an excellent view of the ocean and the city. The rooms were spacious, well decorated, clean. The AC worked well on the hot day that we arrived. Concierge service was efficient as was reception service. I appreciated that we got prompt email confirmation of the rooms and car service.
The breakfast was included in our room and was an excellent full meal.
Extremely close to the central station, across the road from the Hard Rock Cafe and Tivoli Gardens, this hotel is superbly located. On our arrival, we were upgraded to a room on the executive floor; which afforded us uninterrupted views across the city and (apparently) an upgraded room. The Arne Jacobsen designed rooms are beautiful, though there is a touch of the 60s/70s about them. While not exactly homely, the rooms are far from sterile. There's a personality which is entirely inkeeping with that of the city of Copenhagen.
High Danish Style
The Royal is tough to miss.. it's the tallest hotel in the center of Copenhagen, and about a block from the central train station. Danish designer Arne Jacobsen did in 1956 what Starck and Schrager are doing now. Although I'd hesitate to call the Royal SAS a "boutique" hotel - it's full service in every respect, and the staff is very courteous.
(This in contrast to, for example, the Paramount or the Hudson in NYC, where style exists at the cost of functionality and hospitality.) The 'club' rooms have sweeping views and gorgeous interior details, and the feather beds are extremely comfortable. Highly recommended for business or pleasure.
A hotel with style
This IS a hotel with style - bags of it. It overwhelms you from the moment you step in the cavernous foyer. Standard rooms are a bit small but the views make up for this. And the cocktail bar really hums towards the weekend. Sadly my itinerary meant that I didnt have time to have a meal in the hotel. A marvellous hotel - go for it !
