Hotel axes

by galy Online Now Jun 11, 2008 at 11:09 AM

I'm trying to book a hotel in Copenhagen. Some of the sites quote prices not including taxes, some includes. Same for breakfast.
Anybody has an idea how much would the taxes be on a room?
Any high recommendation for a place to stay? I'll be in Copenhagen at the beginning of September for 2 nights

    can't remember about the tax issue

    but I've had to go to beautiful Copenhagen about 8 times over the last 2 years for business, sometimes adding a couple of days om my own. So, my Copenhagen VT page has basically hotel reviews! Which budget do you have in mind?

    *If* it's the same as in Sweden, then it's a 25%. May I have the name of the hotel and I might look at it?

    thanks balsaita, I've seen your recommendation on the Admiral hotel. Now I need the information....
    Thanks marielexoteria, I can look at the hotel myself. I'm not sure that Denmark and Sweden has the same tax policies, anyway I need the accurate information

    The Admiral is a wonderful hotel, and very well located. You can walk to most sights from there. In September, especially if weather is nice, the outdoor terraces at Nyhavn will be still quite lively at night, and this is 5 min from the Admiral

    I just made a dummy booking at their website and it says "rates inclusive of taxes" :)

    taxes are always ıncluded in the price in denmark.
    it´s agains the law in denmark not to include taxes when quoting a price.
    like allready mentioned VAT is 25% in denmark.

    i agree with belsaita that the admiral is a very good choice.
    other good choices would be "copenhagen strand" or "skt.petri"

    Hi Claus, how are you doing?

    Funny enough, my choice would be these 3 hotels, in that order

    The Strand was the second choice for our company meetings. Nice, but with less character than the Admiral. We used the Skt. Petri once too, fab hotel, but too 'over-hype' to my taste.

    That's fun, I can write a guide of hotels in CPH.... while I'd always prefer a cozy B&B ;o))

    Hi Galy,
    Just check my review of "Morten's guesthouse" on my Copenhagen VT page ;-)
    Not a B&B (not breakfast included) but you can prepare your own breakfast, or have it in any of the many nice places around. I will no doubt use this place again if I came to CPH on vacation (so my company does not pay me the Admiral, LOL)
