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 you can choose where you want to sit in this range. The best place to find good deals and the full range is via Scandic's own website rather than through booking companies, and there are some excellent non-refundable deals to be had if you book early enough.
The hotel's main selling point is its location, on the sea front in a relatively quiet square but a mere three minutes from the bustling and often noisy Nyhavn, and less than five minutes' walk from the Kongens Nytorv Station, which can be accessed directly by metro from the airport in under 15 minutes. So you can be in the hotel within 30 minutes of walking out of the baggage area at Kastrup, which is pretty remarkable. From the hotel all of central Copenhagen is easily accessible including (if you must) the Mermaid within about 10 minutes' walk. There is no hotel parking, but the hotel offers a small reduction on public parking nearby.
Rooms are to the usual Scandic standard, functional and clean, and there is useful air conditioning for the warmer months when heat can build up quickly indoors. As always with Scandic there is good, free wi-fi.
Breakfast was excellent and included in the room rate. There was a better-than-average selection of food and drink, including self-made freshly squeezed orange juice.
We had a few problem issues during our stay, but these were all dealt with quickly and efficiently by the front desk.
The hotel offers e-check out, a quick and efficient way of cutting down the queues on your day of departure.
