Copen­hagen pro­vides the right

Less than a two-hour flight away, the Dan­ish cap­i­tal proved a per­fect place for to soak up the at­mos­phere

Staines Informer - - NEWS -

FA­MOUS for high fash­ion, stun­ning ar­chi­tec­ture, cy­cling cul­ture – oh, and not for­get­ting Dan­ish pas­tries – Copen­hagen sounded right up our street.

My part­ner and I em­barked on a four-night ad­ven­ture to Den­mark’s cap­i­tal – a des­ti­na­tion be­com­ing in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar for tourists look­ing for an in­sight­ful but re­lax­ing city break.

Less than a two-hour flight from Lon­don Gatwick to Copen­hagen Air­port, our EasyJet ex­pe­ri­ence was as de­scribed on the tin – easy.

The journey from the Dan­ish ter­mi­nal to our first digs – Ho­tel Kong Arthur in Nør­re­port – was just as straight­for­ward owing to the city’s fan­tas­tic Metro sys­tem, run­ning di­rectly to the cen­tre in just 15 min­utes.

De­spite the lan­guage bar­rier and for­eign cur­rency many lo­cals could speak flu­ent English, like most Euro­pean coun­tries out­side Eng­land, so there was lit­tle dif­fi­culty in buy­ing our train tick­ets (a sin­gle from Copen­hagen Air­port to Nør­re­port costs £7.50).

As soon as we stepped off the clean and ef­fi­cient Metro we walked just 10 min­utes to the chic and con­tem­po­rary four-star ho­tel. Ho­tel Kong Arthur, which dates back to 1882, is stylish with a spa and pi­ano lounge, but with all your home com­forts and daily ‘cosy wine hour’.

Our dou­ble room was spacious, modern and had ev­ery­thing a guest needs, in­clud­ing free Wifi, tea and cof­fee fa­cil­i­ties, hairdryer, mini fridge, large tele­vi­sion, mag­a­zines, power shower, jet bath and, above all, a large dreamy bed for resting our feet af­ter a day of sight­see­ing.

With views across the canal, you can ex­pect fan­tas­tic hos­pi­tal­ity and a Dan­ish break­fast.

Af­ter two sat­is­fy­ing nights we headed over to the hip Vester­bro area to spend the re­main­der of our stay at An­der­sen Bou­tique Ho­tel.

Within walk­ing dis­tance of some of the city’s top at­trac­tions in­clud­ing Tivoli Gar­dens and its fa­mous Galop­pen game and the Meat­pack­ing district, the trendy ho­tel is lo­cated just 200m from Cen­tral Station, so you can get any­where in the city within min­utes.

With a bright, bold pink colour theme, An­der­sen Bou­tique Ho­tel is an­other four-star site of­fer­ing ev­ery guest a free glass of white, red or pink each day dur­ing ‘cosy wine hour’, which was a nice touch.

We stayed in an ‘Amaz­ing Ju­nior Suite’, kit­ted out with vi­brant fab­rics and con­tem­po­rary fur­ni­ture by De­sign­ers Guild.

The lounge area was great de­li­cious
