... about all the great opportunities I have had here. Other students started to come out and we talked about the test and how well we thought we did. Osiris came by with a bag full of fries that Kate and I dug into. I haven't had skinny little fries like that in a while, on top of that some great chipotle dipping sauce. Salman organized for us to have pizza after the test. That hit the spot. Something about Denmark they put potatoes on their pizzas it's surprisingly great. As a class ...
... on some trains and explore outside of Denmark some more. We found ourselves in the south in island bryyga and the far north in Christianshaven.
We were about to call it a night and the we heard about a jazz bar in Copenhagen that was free some nights and a small fee other nights. It opened at 10pm till 2am with a live jazz band and then from 3am-5pm open for fun. We love jazz music and we were still ready for some fun since we still had some jet ...
... Shortly after we parted ways. I had hoped she would join me later that evening but it didn't work out. I headed back to my accommodations to change and stopped by the Chabbad house for an hour and a half until they brought out the main course. When the food was served I left to go meet up with Guy Zinman's friends around the corner from where I was staying. We hung out for a few hours before I went home to catch some sleep before my train to Berlin left in the morning. ...
... the overhead bin – the seatback pocket will do.
So smug was Chris about his svelte little bag this morning that, when I walked up the BART platform to find a trash can, he snapped a photo of his bag, posed next to my comparatively bloated behemoth. (We were only an hour into the trip, people.) I have a long memory though, so three days from now, when ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel, Copenhagen
Overpriced middle class hotel
3 star, ibislike, the small pool and sauna (ugly) doesn't make it 4 stars. Breakfast is good but nothing special. My room was a double and bathroom seems to be renovated maybe end of the 90ies so I couldn't complain except one of the beds was totally crap!! My colleagues' rooms were small single rooms and old bathrooms from the opening of the hotel in the 70ies. I'd say for business stays or/and conferences this is a good place but for tourists not recommended. The official rates between 995 DKK (company rates) up to 1500 DKK online during the week are definetly overcharged as you'll get a hotel close to railwaystation (not these hourly hotels!) for 550 DKK with similar standard and this is in the city centre!!
Stayed for 4 nights at 160 EURO a night with breakfast for a double. Double bed had two single duvets. One I had to pluck one from the cupboard and pillow smelt like perfume which ruined my first night. We asked for an extra pillow which was delivered the next day, we asked for shoe polish, it never arrived. The ironing board was only half an ironing board with a below average iron, hence it took 30 minutes to iron one shirt. They could not help us solve this problem, despite their 100% satisfaction garantuee. The room was very clean and had a great view but a bit small. The best thing was the breakfast. Without fail, it was good everyday and everything was fresh, nice and tasty. Gym had very good equipment and staff. The pool is too small to have a swim in ( two strokes and you are on the other side). I wanted to go to the gym on the first day but it was closed at 5pm. I later discovered that it was a public holiday. I was not the only one who stood for a closed door. I planned to have some beauty things done but the beautician was on holidays during our stay so I had to make alternative arrangements in town. I think the hotel really needs to improve their information services and get some proper ironing boards and irons! The staff were very professional, friendly and nice. Drinking and eating is VERY expensive in the hotel and I recommend to eat in town. See the walk as some healthy exercise!! All in all, a nice hotel but needs some small improvements.
Do not under any circumstance stay here
Upon check-in the hotel hides its actual ambiance. The room we were given was small and was extremely dirty. I even opted to not sit on a chair or the bed. The management was apologitic, however, could not make up for the condition of the room. They did not even offer us another room when we checked-out after about 15 minutes in the room. The saving grace of this ordeal was that they did not charge us for the room even though we had booked it for the previous night knowing that we would arrive in Copenhage at 6 am.
We stayed in the scandinavia on a friends and family price deal, so we got a mini-suite business class room which means free movies, etc. If i had payed full price my review may not have been quite as favorable. The rooms have the best view of copenhagen, the breakfast was excellent and the staff was very helpful. The rooms are medium to small, but well furnished with down comforters and pillows. For those writing that the hotel is too far out, they are in serious need of a checkup. You can walk to Tivoli in ten minutes or i fit's raining take the metro which is four minutes from the hotel and drops you off right inside the department store Magasin on Kongens Nytorv. For Danish design I would prefer the SAS Royal and for something more charming try Gludsmeden. But the Scandinavia is a good business class hotel with all the amenities including a Casino.
we have recently returned from a 3 night break to copenahgen and stayed in the radison sas hotel.
A bridge too far...
Just back from 3 nights but I wish I had took notice of the other reviews here and had stayed nearer the Square which I make 20 mins walk. Excellent buffet breakfast and views compensate as does the walk across the lakes to Christainia.
This is a recently built high-rise hotel with attractive rooms like those in a typical North American business hotel (that's intended as a compliment). Most rooms have magnificent views because the hotel is a bit away from the city center (about 1 km or 1/2 mile). There is little within immediate walking distance. A subway (metro) station is a 5 minute walk away, which is very handy, but it's not visible from the hotel and you'll need to ask directions.
Fine hotel, but just a bit too far out of town
This is a fine hotel, as most Radissons tend to be. The only problem with this one is that it is a 15 minute walk from the city centre along a main road. It's not really a pleasant walk, which means you're obliged to taxi back and forth. If you're old like me you like to pop back to the hotel a few times during the day for a bit of a rest, and this hotel being where it is makes that inconvenient.
Fastest Lifts in Denmark
542 rooms on 20-something floors, so if you're looking for character and intimacy, forget it. What this hotel does offer is slick efficiency and the promise that you'll never get lost in Copenhagen because just about everywhere you go you can see it towering above the city. Each floor is supposed to be decorated according to a particular theme (oriental, high tech, Danish, etc) but this doesn't really amount to much more than a print on the wall and patterns on the soft furnishings. If you want to abuse your liver you'll need a bank loan but this isn't peculiar to this particular hotel. The lift (we were on the 17th floor) gets you there so fast your ears go pop but the walk back into the city (15 minutes to the Tivoli) will give you time to recover. In summary, a bit soulless.
Great breakfast and view, bur small rooms!
Spent two night at this hotel in late February. It's a really big hotel a little bit of the beaten track, about 15 minutes walk to R?dhuspladsen. The room was rather small but the view from the 22'd floor was simply great so try to get a romm facing the city. The breakfast was really good. All in all a good deal but nothing special.
