Travel Update: Copenhagen!

July 1, 2009 in Travel by pacejmiller

If you’ve read more than one of my posts, you’ll probably know I’m not a big fan of the heat.  And right now, I’m boiling hot, sitting in my hotel room in Copenhagen (just arrived from Stockholm today).

It’s the last leg of my European travels, and I’ll be sure to write up a mega round-up when it’s all over in a few days, but right now I’m trying to enjoy the final moments of this fantastic journey.  I’m so behind that I haven’t even finished my posts on Greece!

Anyway, be wary of hotels in Copenhagen.  We chose the Astoria based on its extreme proximity to the Central Train Station in Copenhagen, but there’s no air conditioning!  Because it apparently gets pretty cold here in winter and they only need cooling for a month a year, so most hotels go cheap when it comes to air conditioning (or so they tell us).  Must be global warming or something.  That said, we’re still forking out around 900 DKK per room per night (you do the math, but it’s not cheap!) for a 3-star hotel that doesn’t have air conditioning or free boiled water for that matter.  That said, there is free Internet :)
