When I got off the plane my dad was already there.When I got in the cab.I went to my hotel and relaxed.Later that day we went to a amusement park right across the street.It was called Tivoli gardens I played there the rest of the day.
Well, I'm officially out of Spain. It's weird to think that I'm not headed back to Valladolid after this stay in Copenhagen. I know I'm coming back to Spain someday to visit, but it could be a while. After living here for the last 4 months and getting so familiar with things, it's kind of odd to think that I don't live here anymore.
Last day of sightseeing in Europe done. I woke up this morning at 6:15am to get an early start on the day...and left the hotel a little after 7. In retrospect, I probably should have taken into account the fact that this is the 2nd shortest day of the whole year and the sun wasn't going to rise until after 8am. Ah well, I got to see Christmas …
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
Great location but some improvements required
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.
The lobby and downstairs breakfast rooms are lovely, food is v. good with a good choice.
However for little old me, not a member of any premium clubs etc - just looking for a standard room - I found it to be very small and while clean and basic, it could really do with a little modernisation. Kept banging my head off the annoying metal doors surrounding the TV, which also partially blocked my view...
The Danes are really proud of the fact that this hotel won design awards in the '60's, and there certainly are many funky touches to the rooms . However, that's just the problem - 60's decor doesn't always work well !
Nice hotel, if you pay a little extra you can get a bigger room and it would certainly seem to be worth it.
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!
Couldn't ask for better
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.
Central, efficient and surprisingly friendly
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.
Staff at the hotel were helpful, polite and attentive, with almost depressingly good English. We didn't get a chance to try the top floor restaurant, as it was fully booked for the weekend. If you want to eat there, you'd be well advised to book in advance of your stay. It's said to be amongst the best restaurants in Copenhagen, and it certainly has the best view - a panoramic vista over a friendly and, in its own way, extremely charming city. I'd certainly recommend this hotel, particularly if you're only staying for a short time - its location is perfect for anyone who arrives on the modern and pretty efficient trains into the nearby station, and it's only a minute's walk to Tivoli Gardens, or a couple more minutes to the excellent shopping street, Stroget.
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 !
