I will be staying in Copenhagen this summer for a pre-cruise stay and getting ready to book a hotel. I was leaning towards the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, in Copenhagen. I know that it is a little on the expensive side, but since i will only be staying one night i am not concerned. I am just looking for a hotel that is pretty centrally located with good accommodations and friendly staff. Has anyone stayed in this hotel that can give me some insight to this hotel? Thanks.
Radisson Blu has a very good location right across the road from the train station and 2 minutes walk from the main square.
I have not stayed at the place so i can not talk about the staff unfortunately.
The Scandic Copenhagen (on Vester Sogade) is nearby as well. I stayed there this summer for one night and would say that it's centrally-located with friendly staff. My friend made the reservation and they accommodated her request for a room with a fantastic view of the city (it was probably my first and only night in Copenhagen) and they were really accommodating with our staggered arrivals (the reservation was in her name but they let me into the room because I arrived first). It had a huge breakfast buffet (included) as well. I think the Blu has one as well, but can't comment on it. The Scandic had rates from 1155 DK on the random night I checked, while on the same night the Radisson started at 1305, so if you're watching costs it's a bit cheaper.
Scandic is aroun d 300 meters from Radisson Blu and has an even better location than Radisson so you should certainly consider that too now that a member says the staff is friendly.
Well if you do not need to be close to the rail there is the Admiral to consider
[original VT link]
right on the harbour...Close to the sights...very unusual decor...organic food...friendly staff...taxis at your door (to go to your ship)
Admiral is in the other side of the city cneter but it's also a good location and that hotel has a view over the canal and the opera house and if you are in to dining at the hotel then it has one of the best hotel restaurants in Copenhagen.
Well Claus the OP is then going on a cruise so it seems may not have to be close to the rail
No there is no need to be close to the train station as such, but the train station is very close to the main square and that area has a very cosy bar scene if they are after a bit of nightlife.
Well Claus that sure is a good thing to know for sure.
