Travel Blogs from Copenhagen
Having arrived in Copenhagen around Noon, we walked to our hotel and got settled in Room 402. Very nice.
We then ventured out to find a tour of the City and enjoyed it very much. We could have taken another "route" but decided we'd had enough and had seen the major sights. As you can all imagine, we are a bit tired and ready for some …
... to a Old Danish village. Lizzie didn't come because she went to the festival so that was a tough goodbye. I will miss her so much. About 12 of us went and it was nice because Salman arranged a guided tour. It was kind if like White Pine village of Michigan, and I even felt like a kid because Salman was counting us like sheep to make sure we were all there. Many of the houses were brought here all around Denmark and pieced back together. So most were original farms and what they ...
... to walk to the canals to watch the sun rise. It was beautiful!
The reason we didn't have class on Thursday was due to the holiday Kristi Himmelfartsdag which is Pentacost I believe. My professor said it was when Jesus rose to heaven, however he couldn't explain it further than that. He also noted that it was odd that this is recognized as a national holiday in Denmark, because they are not very religious.

... the captain came on the PA to announce they were going to do a medical evacuation so we raced up to the 12th deck and watched the helicopter land on the deck. A walk in the park as the Captain described it. I must say the sailing has been so smooth you have to keep looking out to make sure we were still moving. Just ran into the Rock Tenors they are off to Russia to perform. Not long to our flight leaves for Stockholm can't wait to see the ...
... every table was taken. So, we sat on some stools by the smoking booth. It was more then I could take in. The mood was just enchanting. As I looked around I noticed more people coming in and just sharing tables with people they didnt know. I thought we might be missing out. Five people could be seen sitting at a two person table. Maybe we should join a table.

Historical Traveler Reviews Savoy Hotel Copenhagen
The hotel is an historic well-maintained city house centrally located close to all sites.
We spent some days there and would like to point out that it is a quite good hotel comparing to some same class hotels in other big cities we were in.
Small, but cosy
Well, I stayed in Copenhagen one week, one week in Savoy Hotel, and I have to say that the hotel is okay for staying there. When I'm visiting a town I'm out all day, and not in room. The room was small. But for a ingle room the size was okay. The hotel is situated very close to the city centre and the main station. And even the musical theatre is just next to the hotel. The only thing that wasn't so nice was the bathroom, because the shower was kind of small and after having a shower the whole bathroom was full of water. The breakfast was good aswell, and so the staff and the lobby. If you want to visit Copenhagen, and you want a hotel close to the city and you don't mind about smaller rooms, because you're outside through the day, the Savoy Hotel can be recommended!
I booked to stay here 2 months in advance, paying up front through Expedia. When I arrived to check in at 9.30pm I was told that the hotel was fully booked and that they had booked me into an alternative hotel. After having travelled all day from Iceland this really was not a welcome complication to my trip. However, I think I was certainly better off at the new hotel, which was basic but at least cleaner than the Savoy sounds. Having booked so far in advance, as well as paying in advance, I would have expected to have been given the choice to book myself into an alternative hotel. Really bad service.
My husband and I stayed here as an anniversary present from my parents but were downgraded by the agent who had double booked us! I would say from the 4* we were supposed to be staying in to be downgraded to what is supposed to be a 3* was very disappointing as I have stayed in better 3* accommodation. The hotel lobby is clean but with very minimal seating, the restaurant is very basic offering only continental breakfasts, however the food was very fresh. Our room was of a fair size and in need of a refurbishment and a good scrub. The working surfaces were clean but the skirting boards, picture rails and around the bath area were either covered in thick black dust or mould! The rooms overlook a courtyard and we were rudely awoken at 6am every morning to the bar staff (although we never found a bar!) wheeling trolleys containing glasses across the yard!! The luggage room is down a steep flight of stairs (there is no lift, only for bedroom access) so don't travel with too much stuff!! The staff were very friendly though and if you're on a budget it is a fairly good hotel location wise for no more than 2 nights!
3 star? not by comparison
We stayed at the Savoy Hotel, Copenhagen this Easter weekend (2005) and i have to say, we knew we were getting a 3-star hotel and read reviews and descriptions on here and it didn't live up to them at all. Our room was small, shabby, bathroom was outdated and grubby, it had a smell of stale cigarettes in the room and corridors and looked underinvested and uncared for in the decor. I had two bites on me by morning - either mites or fleas - so we checked out straight away and went to The Square Hotel, Copenhagen - a much better location and even though it was also a 3-star, we both felt it was a 5-star in comparison. Lovely modern rooms and good pricing, much more for your money. My advice, don't sty at the Savoy until they clean up their act, literally.
Good value if you are on a budget
Small room, clean, good location, excellent value for Copenhagen. Typical small, single bed (especially if you are over 6 feet tall!). Breakfast was just fine, and staff very good and helpful. Easy to get to all the sights if you like to walk (I do). My rating is "above average" for reasonably priced / good value in a hotel. Would be below average if you want luxury.
We recently stayed at the Savoy following our Baltic Cruise. The room was quite a bit smaller than the room we had on the ship and the bathroom was even smaller yet. The shower was so small that I could not even turn around without becoming entangled in the shower curtain.
My partner & I visited Copenhagen for 2 nights, on a budget, at the beginning of March '04. We easily found the hotel from the train station & were impressed by the clean & modern lobby. However, we weren't that impressed by the room! We stayed on the top floor in what appeared to be the attic. The room was pretty small & had a sloping roof so my 6ft partner could only stand up straight at one side. In a nutshell the room & bathroom were basic but clean - you get what you pay for. The breakfast though was excellent... the buffet of meats, cheeses, eggs, cereal, bread etc was more than sufficient to meet our needs & the catering staff were really friendly & helpful. The location was fine... about a 10min walk into town.
