Woke up early around 6am, and lounged around for about a half hour. Rob went out to get coffee, and I went online to track our bags. The website was updated to say that the bags were found, but needed confirmation. The site was also a little confusing because there were two flights listed, one 902 and 910. The baggage service at the airport didn …
Awoke after a few hours and remembered that we were still on the plane, again business class was so nice. Had a quick breakfast, and we were on the ground in an hour. Customs was a breeze, and we made our way to Baggage Claim - that’s when our luck ran out.
We started to realize it when we saw that we were the only ones left from …

All over town, there are these little hot dog stands selling all sorts of interesting Danish hotdogs. Luckily, I found an organic hotdog stand in the Stroget area and tried a veggie dog, "Danish style." The bun was not the standard potato roll. It was fluffy on the inside, but a bit crispy on the outside. Also it had seeds in it. On top of the dog went ketchup, mustard, crispy fried/dried onions, raw onions, ...

The mermaid is a lot smaller than you think she would be, but it all comes from where the little mermaid author, Hans Christian Anderson, was from.This mermaid is so famous that it was sent to an exhibit in Hong Kong for a competition and whilst it was not in Denmark, a plasma screen showing the live streaming of the mermaid in Hong Kong stood in its place, so that even if you came to Copenhagen you ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Andersen Hotel Copenhagen
Usually the reviews on these pages turn out to be pretty much in line with my own experiences. Not so this time. The Selandia hotel is pretty much worn-off, and although the adjacent red light district is perfectly accessible for anyone even during the night, the noise of cars touring their circles and men hanging about until late at night is staggering. There are many other hotels in those same blocks, and I have stayed in two of them myself (Ibis and Comfort) both of which turned out to have sound proof windows. Not so the Selandia, so if you have the choice ask for a room that is not facing the streets.
We stayed in the Selandia for 3 nights over the May Public Holiday and found it to be excellant value and well positioned to explore the city. We were fortunate to have our room upgraded upon arrival and the resultant facilities in our room were first class. The reception staff were very helpful,polite and friendly. The breakfast was first class with a selection of cheeses and cold meats as well as the usual cereals and fruit. The only negative point i would mention was that there was quite a lot of noise at night, shouting and singing mainlyfrom revellers using the Red Light Area which is close to the hotel. I would stay here again and would recommend it to friends which i guess is the acid test
Will never stay there again. Order room from web from company in England called hotel pronto on the side they gave a price for room with bath and I payed for that but Hotel Selandia gave me room without bathroom and did charge me extra for room with bathroom that I was sure I had pay for. First room was with puke on the floor , next room had a toilet that did“nt work and the extra charged got me very angry.
Will never stay there, people dont trust pronto hotel I sure will never go throw their site.
I had papers that showed that I paid for room with bath but the hotel would not lissen to me the customer. I“m very sure that many people have been in my shoes booking hotel from Pronto also in my shoes to pay more to this hotel.
I stayed one night this February. The hotel was excellent in responding to my emails before I booked. Very efficient on arrival, with all my requests (quiet room, etc.) being met. Room and bed fine, with satellite TV. Bathroom and fittings not the newest, but perfectly adequate, with strong shower. Breakfast had lovely choice of cereals, yoghurts, cheeses, meats, fruit, breads. Very convenient for Central Station, etc. Reception staff offered to keep my luggage in room electronically locked from desk while I did my tourist bit. No hesitation in returning.
We stayed in the Selandia Hotel in mid September before embarking on a cruise. It was difficult to obtain a hotel room in Copenhagen in this time frame due to a medical convention so we were a bit apprehensive.
Stayed at the Selandia for 5 nights last fall. Convenient to the train station, Tivoli and not a bad walk to most everything else. It does lie on the fringe of the red light district but if you approach it from the train station, you will not go through it as it extends from the Selandia in the other direction.
Very Good Value and Location
I stayed at the Hotel Selandia for 3 nights recently. I chose the hotel based on reviews on tripadvisor and wasn't dissapointed. I was looking for a good value in a central location and I was pleased. The hotel had friedly employees and was clean with a very good breakfast buffet.
The only negitive was it is on the edge of the red light area but you can access everything without walking through it if you choose. That area really isn't that bad anyways.
If I go back to Copenhagen I will definately book at that Selandia.
A group of 12 stayed at the Selandia in late May. Everyone in the group was very satisfied with the Selandia. The room I had was nice, clean and a good size. The bed was comfortable and the sheets and towels were clean. The ensuite bath was generously sized with a tub/shower and a window. The room had a large window overlooking a courtyard. Some of the group had rooms on the front of the hotel and heard some street noise, but said it was not bad. If you are noise sensitive, ask for a room on the courtyard.
To start with negative bit: The Selandia is located in an area with above average frequency of sex shops and (to me) obvious drug dealing nearby. If you feel uncomforatbel with that, this might not be the place to go. Though, this doesn't make the area unattractive, there are a couple of other mid-range hotels and excellent restaurants just next door. The inner city is in walking distance.
Good value, good location
Spent 4 nights at Hotel Selandia which we felt was good value for a 2 star. Good location near the Central Station, although it is in the red light district, don't let this put you off - the area is not too seedy! We had a smallish sized room but the bed was comfortable and the room clean and a good shower/loo. The breakfast room is very pleasant and the buffet breakfast was excellent. The staff were helpful and courteous. Our only problem was that on our last night there was a lot of street noise which we hadn't experienced on the other 3 nights - not car noise, people shouting but not as bad as staying somewhere like Barcelona!! So for anyone on a tight budget, this hotel may suit you very well
