We arrived in Copenhagen three days before the cruise. We stayed at the Scandic Copenhagen hotel. This hotel is about three blocks from the Central Train Station and the same distance from the Tivoli. From here we were able to walk anywhere in the city. The cab ride from the airport to the hotel was about $50.00. We elected to take the train for $6.00. It was an easy ride. We walked the three blocks from the train station to the hotel.
The Scandic was lovely. We had free breakfast and free internet service. The staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms were spotless.
On our second day we did the tour with the gentleman who calls himself Hans Christian Anderson. This was an excellent, informative tour. For about $11.00 U.S., we became experts on Copenhagen. "Mr. Anderson" made several dining and shopping recommendations that were right on the mark. He even interviewed people on the street, asking them questions in response to our questions.
