This is the best positioned hotel in Copenhagen & within walking distance of most city sights.
A bit quirky this ex Seaman's Hostel is not for anyone needing a flashy hotel.
This hotel provides good largish rooms at a reasonable price for central Copenhagen, with free breakfast & wifi. www.hotel-bethel.dk to book direct.
I also use Trip Advisor.
With that said we have stayed at the Marriott in Copenhagen and I do recommend that hotel.
Great way to see the older part of the city.
My family are scheduled to sail on the Regal Princess out of Copenhagen on July 26, 2018. We plan to arrive in the city several days earlier and would like to take a tour of the city and harbor. Does anybody have any recommendations in regards to tour groups. In addition, would anybody have any information in regards to hotels in the City. Thanks for the help and information.Copenhagen is an easy town to tour on your own. The main area is from Nyhaven to Tivoli. This area is connected by pedestrian walkways. The Royal Palace is adjacent to Nyhaven and at times there is a parade with changing of the guard. At Nyhaven you can take a canal tour. A canal tour is the best way to view The Little Mermaid as she faces the water. You can also walk there by walking through the Kastellet. From land you view her back. There is a HOHO bus that runs all over the city. We were there three days and one day we took the train from the main station over to Malmo, Sweden. There we also took a Malmo canal tour, walked around the town, and had a meal at a nice restaurant. Malmo is about 30 mins by train. If you join your roll call there may be some information there about private tour guides. We didn't take any tours. Interesting we had some extra Danish Krona. We tried to use it in Sweden, but it was not accepted. We used our credit card.
