Travel Blogs from Copenhagen
Here we are in the land of Hans Christian Andersen, Legos and Princess Mary. We are staying on Hans Christian Andersen Boulevard, took a photo in the big Lego store but to date, have not received an invitation from fellow Australian, Princess Mary?!?! Copenhagen is very icy and reminds us again of Scotland. Hats, gloves and scarves are the order of …
I squeezed as much as I could into the last few hours I had in Copenhagen. It wasn't much, but we managed to enjoy our last day of my graduation trip. Turns out it was a national holiday in Denmark, Constitution Day. A lot of shops and restaurants were closed as the country really shuts down on holidays. The Danes can be really patriotic though and …
I wrote in my travel journal that "today was a very nostalgic and thought provoking day". Being in Denmark just felt extremely normal. I'm probably going to have to live or work here again at some point in my life. This morning Dad made sure we got breakfast at the best bakery in Copenhagen, La Glace. It's on the Strøget, the main shopping street …
Given the fact that I had gotten to bed a little before 5am and had a meetup planned with my Danish friends for noon in the suburbs, I didn't get much sleep. It had to do. I had arranged before leaving for Europe to have a picnic in the deer park near my old house in Lyngby with my Danish reenacting friends. After I showered and got cleaned up Dad …
What a crazy day. I thought leaving Milan was going to be straightforward. We had breakfast at our hotel and took the train to the main station and then out to the airport. Unfortunately after our hour of transit we discovered we we at the wrong airport! Our flight was at the other airport on the other side of the city just a few minutes from our …

Historical Traveler Reviews The Square Copenhagen
Modern Hotel in a Good Location
We stayed at The Square for three nights in July 2003. The hotel has a terrific location that you can easily reach from the train station. The large minimalist lobby and the equally sparse breakfast room on the top floor are both very attractive. Unfortunately, the room was rather small and the 'view' was of a dismal gap between a wing of the hotel and a neighboring bar. My main concern was a security gaffe: We returned from the breakfast buffet to find our room door wide open and the cleaning staff nowhere in sight. My purse was plainly visible from the corridor and could easily have been taken.
The Square was great. Attentive service, sophisticated hip styling and modernist furniture. Stayed during a heavy snowstorm in February.
Nothing to look out from outside, but great location on Rathusplatsen (Town Hall Square) only a couple of blocks from the Central Train Station, and across the road from major bus terminus. 2A Airport bus stops directly around corner. Very large 24 hour Internet Cafe in block behind hotel. Rooms are compact, and very modern Nordic styling.
Delightful tile and glass bathrooms. Incredibly soft and comfy beds.
Good continental breakfast on top floor, with rooftop views. This is a central city business hotel, so if snow is predicted, make sure you order your morning taxi the night before to avoid a long taxi queue in the morning.
Hip to be Square!
Magnificent location and a Magnificent hotel. As others has already mentioned, the hotel is very stylish, modern and clean. All the staff were very friendly, including the Front Desk.
It is in a perfection location with Copenhagen's Central Station just minutes away, the Stroget Shopping Mall across the way in Town Square and the Tivoli gardens around the corner.
You have amazing range of restaurants ranging from a 7-11 at the Stroget to some top class restaurants in the Square's surrounding streets.
We had a room on the 3rd Floor, and yes, you do hear the disco sound system on a Saturday night, but that didn't bother us at all. Top stay at a stylish hotel.
My partner and I stayed here from 19-21 December 2003, and found it a quiet and pleasant experience in a perfect location. We were originally given a third floor room, however, and bearing in mind the comments below we asked if we could have a room on an upper floor; this request was met quickly and politely, and we were given a room with a balcony on the 6th floor, just along from the breakfast restaurant. The room was smallish, but quiet and comfortable: the shower was fabulous and the duvets (two single duvets on a double bed? odd, but my partner loved it and is now planning to introduce this at home!) were very cosy (hygge?!) Breakfast was cold, but of a very high quality and varied. I would definitely stay here again, but I'd always be a little worried about the comments below concerning the 'disco': maybe the hotel could respond, as I nearly booked elsewhere because of these remarks?
We stayed at the hotel 12-14 december 2003 and had a wonderful stay in a superior room. The beds are fantastic, the bathroom has a wonderful design and the location of the hotel can't be better. Just 200m or so to Strøget and all the cosy Copenhagen shops and streets. You can't find a more centrally located hotel than this. The only thing you need to be aware of is to ask for a room facing away from the highway passing in front of the hotel. Otherwise you might be in for a noisy experience.
My husband, 15 month old son and I stayed in The Square in the middle of November 2003. The hotel has an excellent location with pleasing interiors. The lighting is restful on the eyes and the card system used in the lifts provides extra security. The 6th floor dining room is stunning, beautiful and a good example of danish design. The cleaning and restaurant staff are helpful and attentive but the reception staff probably need some extra training. If booking this hotel beware of having a room which faces away from the street, you will be above a noisy disco. We had to complain about being given this room at 3am. Not much fun if you want uninterrupted sleep. We were not the only ones to complain. After firm protest with the staff we were moved to one of the best rooms on the 6th floor facing the side street. Our original room was perfectly adequate apart from the disco noise. We did not ask for an upgrade and were made feel the hotel was doing us a big favour. It is not a favour to have to move all your stuff to another room. Despite this we had a wonderful time in Copenhagen.
I have just returned from a three night stay at The Square Hotel, Copenhagen. My partner and I were very impressed. If you are looking for a hotel to stay in, in Copenhagen, look no further. We had a good idea of what to expect from what we had read about the hotel on the web: Our room was very clean and modern and decorated to a very high standard. The bathroom was also clean, with a wonderful power shower. The only negative points were that the room was perhaps a little on the small side, but it was definitely not cramped. Also the room did not have any coffee/tea making facilities, however, having stayed in many hotels in Europe, there now seems to be a move away from these facilities being supplied. The design of the room and the hotel in general was very modern and trendy. Breakfast, served in the bright and spacious breakfast room on the 6th floor, was good - the traditional European breakfast of cold meats, bread rolls, croissants, fresh bread, cereals etc. If you want to stay in a hotel in Copenhagen, choose this one. Although it is a 3* establishment, we felt as if we were staying in at least a 4*. I cannot recommend it any more highly.
I'm writing to recommend The Square hotel, right on the Radhusplasen, the town hall square, in downtown Copenhagen. Everything was fresh, relatively new (I believe it was renovated about a year ago?) and clean. Nice design in the lobby and in the rooms (using both a square motif and a nifty circular table in the lobby. See website for accurate photos). The bedroom was smallish by American standards but gleaming. We had an double/queen bed (not two twins pushed together as in some locations that advertised a double bed). We were in a no-smoking room but when we smelled cigarette smoke and made a call to the front desk, they suggested it may be the room below us and promptly made a phone call to that person, which stopped the offensive odor. The breakfast room was airy and light and the food choices on the buffet were traditional and good. The price was not cheap (in part because we ended up with a room with a balcony) but we felt it was worth the cost, especially for our first 3 days in Denmark and for the great location, close to Tivoli (which was closed when we were there) and many museums. We'd definitely return.
Great Style and Location
The hotel has a great location on Radhus Square, but beware the address, the street the hotel is on is actually HC Andersen Blvd. The hotel decorations and furnishings are very modern and clever.
Everywhere you look you can see what a good time the interior decorators must have had in designing this hotel. We were very kindly given a complimentary upgrade to a room with a balcony. Breakfast was very good with a nice view from the stylish 6th floor dining room. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The frosted glass bathroom door is a bit unusual, especially with a small see-through section. Staff was adequate, but not exceptional.
The Square cannot be beaten in terms of location. Directly across from Town Hall Square, it is walking distance to Stroget, Central Station, Tivoli Garden, Madam Tousaud and all Copenhagens attractions.My friend and I were lucky enough to come across advertisements for the hotel as well as great internet deals on rates because the hotel had only been open for two months. It was so new in fact that some of the rooms were still in the process of being set up. It has a beautiful and modern lobby and the rooms are a dream come true for anyone who appreciates modern Scandinavian design.Our room in particular had a very large balcony. The bathrooms have heated floors and the rooms have chocolate finished furniture, warm tones and extremely comfortable beds.Breakfast was included in our rate and served in their lovely and bright breakfast room.The staff was very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
