When visiting Copenhagen, anyone who is anybody is sure to stay in the Hotel d'Angleterre on Kongens Nytorv : this is where visiting dignitaries and rock stars live when they're in town-- as long as someone else is paying the bill. A double room costs 3215 kroner per day (about $673), quite expensive to stay there or eat in the resturant, and therefore proof of high status and wealth. Never been inside myself, nor has anyone I know, couldn't afford it, but I suppose it's quite nice.

Well, of course, we who live here don't tend to use any hotels, expensive or cheap, simply because we've already got a place to stay. However, Københavners actually DO have a use for Hotel d'Angleterre--there is quite often some crowd of fans hanging out in front of the main entrance, trying to catch a glimpse of Bruce Springsteen, or Pavarotti, or the Spice Girls as they slip into their limos on the way to concert, airport, wherever.
