Travel Blogs from Copenhagen
Today was history day and we happily explored the Danish history from then til now. We started our day in Christiana, a self-proclaimed independent sixties social experiment. We're not quite sure whether the hippie-ideals of back then have survived up to today, or it is just an excuse to tag and sell hasj when you're not supposed to. One stroll …
Today, our feet got thoroughly tested. Copenhagen is deceivingly small and big at the same time: all can be easily done on foot...and some things can't. We started our day with à bit of a tradition: visiting the local zoo. Today was also the day for some Copenhagen essentials: Nyhaven, Stroget and the Lego-flagstore and of course the (in)famous …
Touchdown! Right in time to witness our own Evi Van Acker win bronze in the Olympics! Ahum, back to Copenhagen. In our brief encounters with Christiansborg (Royal Palace), the ruins of former Royal, yet burnt-down palaces and à quick boat trip around the Canals, we have now not only a good idea on what to explore in the next few days, but quite a …
After yet another slow morning getting started we opted to check out the Hop On, Hop Off bus and took it around the city before ending up at the Danish Resistance Museum. There were a lot of artifacts to look at and read about for a small museum and we easily ate up two to two and a half hours there before meandering our way along the waterways and …
The day started out somewhat slowly as we both struggled to get out of bed after a somewhat late night spent at Charlie's which was a bar recommended to us by a gent we met at The Dubliner. So after breakfast we headed back to the train station to see about renting a couple of bikes for the tour that Danielle found which started at 10:30. We …

Historical Traveler Reviews First Hotel Twentyseven Copenhagen
I have just returned from a 2 day stay in Copenhagen and I loved it!.
The Hotel 27 was beautiful! Even though the hotel is currently under renovation that made no difference to my excellent stay.
The hotel is about a 2 minute walk from the Tivoli Gardens and the made strip of shops, so it is very central.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and my room was fabulous! It was clean and extremeely modern and the bed was so comfortable. I would definately recommend this hotel to a friend and I would definately go back!
We stayed at this hotel from the 6- 8 November 2006. Perfect location & very central. Direct booking with the Hotel actually gave us the best price.
Perfect for a short break in copenhagen
I stayed here for four nights with my friend for a short break. It was in a good location on a quiet street in the centre of the town. As two girls, we felt safe walking home at night. We were put in one of the newer rooms and it was lovely. Comfy spacious beds, flatscreen tv with a few local and international channels and radio stations. We were a bit freaked out by the bathroom though. The door didn't close fully (not because it was broken, just the way it's made) and the wall that separates the shower from the main bedroom area was almost completely see through. Breakfast was lovely. There was a huge choice of cooked and continental breakfast foods, and fruit. We had something different each day. The staff were friendly and helpful too.
No very private en suite
room was a little on the small size,en suite was nearly see through ,and u could here your friend using the toilet never mind the flushing or the loo, may be this is whats done in denmark i dont know.
I have to say that I was fortunate enough to stumble upon this hotel. We had originally booked at DGI Byen Hotel, which I was unsatisfied with the minute I entered our room, so I spent the rest of the night walking around Copenhagen looking for a different hotel. I found Copenhagen Hotel 27, formally Mermaid Hotel, ( I assume they are now under new ownership, hence the name change and renovations). When I entered I asked if there were any available rooms for check-in for a family of 4, the pleasant man at the reception said yes and gave me the key so that I may view the room. It was one of the newly renovated rooms, which was so immaculately clean. I wish I had taken some photographs of the room to post ( I must say that the review and photos I saw of the old room on tripadvisor was very different from my experience). So if you book at this hotel, I would highly recommend that you ask for one of the renovated rooms..I believe there are currently 70 out of 200 rooms that already finished, they say within 2 years the whole hotel will be completed. The construction, however was not an interference or a noise issue during our stay. The hotel itself is situated in the most perfect location in Copenhagen. It is on a quiet street, yet one street parallel to the "main tourist shopping street" and less than 5 minute walk to Tivoli. The breakfast was delicious, and they also have nice bike rentals and free wireless connection. I must say that we were very lucky to find this hotel and even more lucky to have been given one of the renovated rooms.
I was here on June 18 and 19, 2006 and unfortunately was assigned the crappiest room in the western world I've ever paid for. There are worse places you can stay, but not at these prices. It was a postage stamp-sized room, the ceiling was stained, the wallpaper was peeling off, doorframes were rotting, and above the little desk where i would expect to see a piece of art, there were 2 bolts sticking out of naked, crumbling concrete. The single window offered an expansive view of the stacked constuction crates outside on the street. Open, the noise from the street and the bar next door was far too loud to sleep with, and window closed it was too hot to sleep with the covers on. I couldn't plug in my laptop at the little desk without unplugging the tv because the only free socket was located on the opposite side of the room: beneath the light switch by the door (and 4m away from the desk). The bathroom was basically a toilet and sink mounted inside a shower stall - shower drain in the floor and a curtain was positioned to keep the spray down. The toilet had a faded flimsy plastic seat and the tank was rimmed with black mould around the lid. The mouldy grout in the wall tile was chipped and chunks were missing. The ventilation fan did not work, hence the mould. Shampoo was provided, but no conditioner.
On 29th May 2006 we checked in this hotel which is still under renovations. We had booked a tripple room which was so crammed that we could just not move. When one entered the room there was some peculiar smell. The bathroom was so basic that its best i don't discuss. The hotel claims that their newly renovated rooms will be functional from 1st june. Hope the other tourists who check in then enjoy their stay in those newly renovated rooms. One could also hear people talking from the adjacent rooms. For three days the best thing we did was to stay out of the room for the whole day and retire by 8pm so that we just knock off to sleep. Its not worth the price we have paid. The only positive point was the excellent breakfast menu. I am fully satisfied about it. The desk staff Mr Kasper was excellent . He was very helpful. I only hope this place will be a better after its renovations are complete. I personally feel they should inform about their renovations on their website.
Not my type
This hotel is under a complete renovation!!!! noises all the time, looks like a building construction site... it will be a good hotel when renovation is finished I guess, cause location is very good. But now... DONT GO! sorry but its true... they should close the hotel while its being restored. The front desk guy almost told me it was my fault to book this hotel, he told me it was my travel agents fault not to let me know it was under severe renovation process... I DONT THINK SO!... IF YOU ARE SO FARE, WHY DONT YOU PUBLISH ON YOUR WEBSITE THE BUILDING CONSTRUCTION SITE YOU HAVE... please!!!!
I didn not believe my eyes when I saw the room me and my daughter paid almost 900 NKR pr. night for. It was tiny, with some really bad furniture, the bathroom was smelly and horrible, the beds were uncomfortable..... I could go on for ever. We changed to another hotel, but were cheated for the deposit that I paid for two nights, so I feel really bad about this hotel. The breakfast room was nice!
