Danhostel Downtown 1 stars
Finally, a Danhostel that has a restaurant and bar and doesn't cater to school groups. Well, the place hasn't opened yet, but let's keep our fingers crossed and see what happens. Scheduled to open in just a few months (April 2008) the Downtown Hostel will be located near the train station in a newly renovated building. This hostel will have dormitory rooms as well as a few singles and doubles. The location sounds great, for the new venue will be located near the train station and Tivoli Gardens. Hopefully, all this information is correct and this place will be a welcome addition to the Copenhagen's growing list of hostels.

Stroget 4 stars
1 of 1 people found this review helpful
A long pedestrian street that runs through the center of Copenhagen. It is a great avenue of commerce and humanity. Restaurants, drinking establishments and shopping oppurtunities abound along this busy street. On a Friday night this place is hopping with makeshift bands and live music. Supposedly this street is the first pedestrian mall in the world, but even if it's not, it still is a fun place to shop or just visit.

The City 4 stars
You can’t visit the Danish capital without seeing the City, the center of Copenhagen. It is there most of the tourist attractions are located and also some of the best shopping, especially along Stroget.

A few of the tourist sights we saw during our visit were Amalienborg Slotsplads, Kungens Nytorv, Rosenborg Castle, Kastellet, and the street Nyhavn along the quays. Nyhavn is the most photographed area in whole Copenhagen; even though it is touristy I enjoyed being there. We found a great Indian restaurant in the middle of Nyhavn where we ate lunch, the spiciest meal I have ever had.

My next time in Copenhagen I want to visit the amusement park Tivoli which is located just opposite the railway station.

Cycling in Copenhagen 4 stars
1 of 1 people found this review helpful
If you have read my previous travel tips you probably know that I like to discover a city by cycling. And Copenhagen is not an exception. When visiting Copenhagen in 2006, I didn’t regret that I brought my bike. Sure, walking can be great because you experience a city in a different way. But when cycling you can see a lot more in a day. At the same time you can slow down whenever you want to.

I especially enjoyed to cycle over Knippelsbro bridge. There's something special with cycling over bridges.

If you don’t want to bring your bike on the train or when flying (yes, I do know people who have foldable bicycles!), you can rent a bike at many places in the city. Lots of hotels rent bikes and you can often lend a bike for free against a deposit. Cycling in Copenhagen is popular; pretty much everyone is doing it… at least the locals. If you have a bike, there’s also a great chance people will assume you are a local. Perhaps even other tourists who might ask you for directions.

Godt Restaurant 5 stars
Ever since it was lauded by the powers that be, reservations here are a must have. As the restaurant seats only twenty, the atmosphere is that of a crowded family party. The French, Italian and Belgian residents of Copenhagen discovered it long ago. Exuberant chef Colin Rice and his wife, Anne-Marie Ravn, concoct a menu that changes every day depending on what's available at the market. On a nice summer evening, you might find quail with sweetbreads and Swedish turnip in basil sauce, or strawberry and chocolate tart with poppy cream if you haven't already guessed in Danish 'godt' means 'good'. Quite simply.
Fixed-price menu:540Kr

Tivoli 3 stars
Opened in 1843, Tivoli ("I Lov'it" spelt backwards) has become as much a symbol of Copenhagen as the Little Mermaid. At the time, the garden was located outside the city walls. It was designed by Georg Carstensen, a visionary who wanted to recreate the spirit of Paris' grand boulevards. This is a friendly place with its thirty-seven restaurants, amusement park attractions, shops and daily performances of theater, jazz or symphonic music. Trees, flowers and the nighttime illumination of 100,000 light bulbs contribute to the fairy tale atmosphere that attracts everyone from cigar-smoking old women to children of all ages. For the best old-style ice cream in the country, go to Vaffelbageriet.
Admission 50 or 56Kr.

Copenhagen 5 stars
Copenhagen is a seemingly compact and an easily digestible city. I don’t think it would be painful to try and explore Copenhagen during the winter and as long as your hotel was relatively central, you could do most of your obvious exploring on foot. Also, you’ll find the majority of Danes where you are as well, you won’t be missing out on the local culture by being near the tourist areas like in some cities. The two most memorable sights for me in Copenhagen was the amusement park Tivoli right next to the central train station and the harbor canal of houses called Nyhavn where Hans Christian Andersen lived for some years. My experience trying to eat at one of the restaurants that lined Nyhavn was having a nine-dollar ice cream scoop, literally one scoop. I suggest eating elsewhere.

Cab Inn City, Copenhagen 3 stars
This is a great hotel for budget travellers who want to stay at a nice, safe, clean and central location without needing to spend too much.The location it’s almost as central as it can be only 100 m (a few minutes walk) from the main train station and right behind the amusement park Tivoli. The pedestrian street Stroget is just 400 m away, it’s only 500 m to the closest Metro station and you can reach Istedgate that goes through the neighborhood Vesterbro in a couple of minutes.

The rooms are as compact as they can be. I read they got this low-budget idea from boat huts. I like that concept and how they have made the most of the space. I would probably not want to stay here for a longer stay, but one or two nights are just perfect. I could choose between Standard, Comodere and Captains Class. All rooms have a shower, toilet, phone, TV, an electric kettle and internet access, so it's a great option for both business and leisure travellers. The standard rooms are either for one, two or three persons and cost 525DKK, 645DKK OR 765DKK. Captains Class is the most luxurious option and those rooms are really spacious. The sign above the hotel says Sleep Cheap in Luxury. I agree with that. Even though the standard room are small they feel luxurious because of their functionality and the trendy furnishing.

Choose this hotel if you're going to Copenhagen. You won't regret it.

The address is Mitchellsgade 14.

Den Grønne Kælder, Copenhagen 4 stars
Den Grønne Kælder is located at Pilestræde 48 just a few minutes walk from the city’s main pedestrian street Stroget. Even though some people say Riz Raz is better, I think Den Grønne Kælder (The Green Cellar) is the best vegetarian restaurant in Copenhagen. First of all, their food is great, especially spinach lasagna and Mexican risotto, and about 80% of the food is vegan.

The restaurant is open Monday to Saturday 11am-10pm, and lunch (frokost in Danish) is served 11am-5pm. During lunch, they offer several tasty meals as hummus, herb beef with rice, pasta with curry sauce, potato gratin and salads like chickpeas salad, green salad with water melon, pasta salad, bean salad and cabbage salad. For 65 Danish crones we could choose between one of the main courses and two salads. I opted for Spinach lasagna, a bean salad and a chickpeas salad. Bread is included in the meal and the portions are generous.

I like the atmosphere at Den Grønne Kælder. The music is good, they have placed a few candles on each table, and nice art works cover the walls.
