Been in this hotel for 3 times now courtesy my work at Maersk headquarters. Very well located. Near to Nyhavn, Kongs Nytorv, Palace and Esplanaden. It's right next to waterfront. Very courteous and amiable staff. Would always love to come back here :-)

Nice hotel near the embassies and the palace. If you are not a heavy sleeper, you may want to reconsider, as the street noise is very audible in the rooms (I was on the 3rd floor). The breakfast was fantastic.

Thanks for your comments, they are highly appreciated. We are delighted that you liked the location an the breakfast, but of course it's critical that you didn't sleep well. Staying in the middle of a capitol might not be a quiet experience, however we will take this point further. Best regards The management team

At the moment, June 2014, the outside of the hotel is a major building site, as it was a year ago, while a new Metro station is installed, but the location at the top of Nyhavn and right by the stunning new Skuespilhuset (Royal Danish Playhouse) makes the hotel otherwise a pretty perfect base. If you take a king room...

The Scandic Front is a nice hotel made even better by its excellent location near Nyhavn. The hotel itself is above average with modern rooms and free internet. The complimentary breakfast was a good addition and was adequate. The rooms had heated floors in the bathrooms which was nice and the bed was comfortable. I only stayed one night since...

Not the best hotel in town but ok. Easy to hear throu the walls. The restaurant is tiny and the food could improve. Quite louad since there is nearly only hard surfaces in the restaurant. The room had nice view over looking the harbour but no changes of sheets the entire weekend. Lots of room for improvement.

This hotel is located directly at the harborfront between the Royal Danish Playhouse and the Admiral Hotel. This is undoubtedly one of the best adresses in Copenhagen. It is very conveniently located for visits to the Royal Danish Opera which is just across the harbor. The rooms are OK considering the price level. During our stay they were renovating the...

The Scandic chain has a range of hotels sensibly dotted across Scandinavia, varying from bog-standard to something approaching luxury, and the Scandic Front sits towards the top end of this. It offers a good choice of room types, from standards up to the duplex "superior plus", the latter complete with two TVs, a Nespresso machine and a great balcony, so...

The hotel was undergoing a roof renovation and was almost completely scaffolded. There was also a large constrution site nearby. That aside, the location is awesome. And after the constructions are completed the site will be worth a revisit. Our room could have used a quick interior facelift. The furnishings and the beds were ok, but the lightning was pretty...

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
