    Excellent value for money

    by

    Hotels in Copenhagen don't come cheap, if location and quality is high on your wishlist. Hotel Neptun provides both, I believe; and then there’s an added bonus.
    The location is hard to beat (look further down) – The room in it self (in our case a standard double) is not exactly spacious, but it’s adequate and completely fitted for a weekend get away. The beds are lovely and the room comes with a decent hairdryer, an iron and a fridge/minibar.
    The breakfast buffet is plenty and will meet both the guilty and not so guilty pleasures of anyone. Obviously there will be the annoying queuing up during peak hours, but there I was, because I couldn’t be bothered to get up earlier.
    Now the added bonus is the free evening buffet; all I can say is, that it’s delicious, varied and if you leave hungry it’s your own fault. Drinks are available, but not part of the buffet.
    Another really nice bonus is afternoon cake/fruit, which is free with coffee and tea from the restaurant. This (if the weather is nice) can be enjoyed at the rooftop terrace – do remember to clean up and bring back everything, as there’s no service either way.
    I’ve never experienced a free afternoon/evening buffet in a hotel in Copenhagen. However this certainly kept our expenses down.

    Directions: Great location; Nyhavn with all it's restaurants, channelfares and bars are just around the corner, and Amalienborg (home of the royal family) is also very nearby. It's a short walking distance from Stroeget - the main shopping street.

Copenhagen for a 50th Birthday?

by foona

A friend of mine will turn 50 in October this year. (No, it's not me, I passed that milestone last year). She's a bit overwhelmed and just want to escape from the whole celebrating thing. She's asked a small group of close fiends to go away somewhere, and have been thinking about Copenhagen. She's not an experienced planner, and I would like to help her making this a memorable stay. So:
- Any hotel recomandations for group of middle-aged women?
- Any restaurant recomandations for Birthday-dinner? She loves Italian food.
- Is there any web-site listing concerts, shows etc?

Thanks!

My favourite hotals were always the Royal & the Admiral. Both have style.

Wouldn't like to speculate on restos - I haven't been there for a few years, and much can change....

the admiral hotel is surely a good choice.
the locationis perfect right by the water and just around the corner from nyhavn and it's a nice old historic building.

another option could be the strand which is in the same neighbourhood.

being norwegian i think you will understand danish so here are a a couple of websites listing things going on in copenhagen:
www.aok.dk
www.ibyen.dk

and for booking ticket for concerts and other events:
www.billetnet.dk

and the aok.dk website also lists all restaurants in copenhagen by what type of food they serve, so you can see howmnay italian restaurants arein the areayou stay.

I just got back from Copenhagen. I stayed with friends so have no actual experience with hotels and restaurants. However, I am checking out both for my sister and her husband who will go there next summer.

Copenhagen has become quite a foodie place. I learned that Copenhagen has more Micheline stars than any other city in Europe and Noma is has been voted as the number 1 restaurant in the world. Personally, when not eating at my hosts' home I ate hotdogs on the street. Here is a list of restos from about.com.

I passed the Admiral Hotel and it is in a great spot on the water and in a nice neighborhood. http://www.admiral-hotel-copenhagen.com/

It's an easy walk to the center, across the water from the opera and practically next door to the theater. You can also take a really nice walk down to the Little Mermaid, which at this time happens to be in China. But the walk it very pleasant.

There is another hotel near there, the Front Hotel, which also looked nice. http://www.scandichotels.com/hotels/Countries/Denmark/Copenhagen/Hotels/Front/

Travel Tips for Copenhagen

Local food markets

by mattss

This is for the tourists who want to have a shot at Danish everyday shopping.
Especially I'd like to help out tourists who say that food (not restaurant food but snacks and similar) is expensive in Denmark. Even in city, even superclose to the central station, you can find discount stores, that we danes shop in on an everyday basis.
I would suggest markets like Rema 1000 (there's one close to Tivoli's main gates), Netto and Aldi for cheap sodas, snacks etc. At least it's as cheap as it gets in Denmark. especially Aldi often looks very outdated ^^ don't be fooled though. for ryebread(sp?), ham, milk or other everyday necessities in Denmark, it's really a cheap alternative. similar goes for snacks, toothpaste and booze and so on (pretty bad combination though;) ) many of the shops have their own value brand like Tesco's value.
The shops can give a little insight in danish everyday food habits, and an inexpensive shot at trying the ryebread.

As a little bonus info .. as far as I know, Aldi sells the cheapest cola in Denmark, at 3 krs for 0.5 litres. Ironically, it is my favorite cola after Coca Cola :D

the bigger markets such as Føtex, Bilka, Superbrugsen can vary in price, often they are a bit more expensive than above shops. I wouldn't go to Irma, as it is notorious for quality products, but at a higher price than other shops, while still being in the group of common food markets.
the same goes for 7 11 and kiosks that are on every streetcorner. expect a slightly higher price.

In short my advice is, as a tourist, when you see Netto, Rema1000 and Aldi shops, stock up on basic necessities.

Stay dry in freak downpours!

Ok for the most part the weather durring the summer has been great but make sure that you pack an umbrella or a raincoat.The weather can change on you in a moment!! I personally would always take a raincoat. There is usually quite a breeze here being on the coast and all. So you could look pretty funny trying to wrestle around with your umbrella in the wind.

go shopping in the old area....

by DanielF

go shopping in the old area. The Strøget is a long pedestrian street that leads from the City Council Square to the Royal Square. There are many interesting shops and cafés in the area. Don't forget to take a look at the last designs by Bang & Olufsen. Another must is Les Magasins du Nord, on the Royal Square: an elegant department store where you will be able to renew your closet with the trendiest clothes. The old town has also many interesting buildings: the small cathedral, the round tower and its awesome view of the city, tiny cobble streets...

Danish Language

by Redang

Don't you speak Danish? Never mind, I would say that 100% of the people, at least in Copenhagen, speak English, and very good English. So, don't let the language be an excuse for not going to Copenhagen. Furthermore, people are very friendly and nice.

Spires of Copenhagen - St. Albans Church

by yooperprof

Coming across St. Alban's Church in Copenhagen (which is located in Churchill Park!), you might think that you've stumbled across an English country parish, perhaps in East Anglia. That's appropriate, since this is the home of the Anglican community in the city. The church has an interesting history: it was built in the 1880s to provide a home for the considerable English community in Denmark, and the Danish-born Alexandra, Princess of Wales, played an important role in raising funds for the structure to be built.
