Copenhagen: Harbourside area

We stayed at the Adina Apartment Hotel Copenhagen, a new building in a harbourside area of old warehouses converted into condos. I love the mix of restored, repurposed buildings and well-designed new architecture.
The Adina is a short walk from Østerport Station. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was perfect for an eight day stay (we stayed there before and after Amsterdam, ten days in total). It's in a quiet neighbourhood close to the ferry terminal, and a 20 to 30 minute walk to central Copenhagen. We could see docked cruise ships from our window. If we visit Copenhagen again, we'd return to the Adina.

The Adina was a short walk to The Little Mermaid statue by Edvard Eriksen. Hoards of tourists swarmed it the first day that we saw it. 
We saw this Winged Victory statue on our walk to The Little Mermaid. Sorry, no details as to its name or sculptor. This gal was more to my liking than the mermaid.

Hoping to visit Copenhagen one of these days, I love the way this building has been completed, great.

Debbie, save your pennies. Copenhagen is expensive, but well worth the visit.
