AC Bella Sky Copenhagen stay earned free MegaBonus night

AC Bella Sky Copenhagen is an architecturally unique Marriott brand hotel in an outlying location between CPH airport and the urban city center. The location made me reluctant to consider this hotel during prior trips to Copenhagen, but Marriott MegaBonus and a relatively low $140 room rate motivated me to give the hotel a try.

My stay was highly satisfactory and I would stay at AC Bella Sky again, if it were an affordable rate. Copenhagen is a popular summer destination and room rates at this hotel can hit an astounding $400+ per night. During my early January 2018 stay I could have booked Radisson Blu Scandinavia for $120.

Arrival:

We arrived at Copenhagen Airport CPH from Prague around 8:30am.

CPH to AC Bella Sky Hotel public transportation

The price of a train ticket is 24 DKK ($4.00 USD) one way and involves taking the train from CPH two stops to Ørestad, then change to the Metro line for one stop to Bella Center.

A better value Copenhagen ticket to consider is a 24 hour City Pass ticket for 80 DKK good for 4 zones including the airport. This is the cheaper option if you plan to take four or more rides in 24 hours. AC Bella Sky is in an isolated location, but near the Metro for easy and quick access to city center.

We arrived at the hotel at 9:30am. My room rate included breakfast buffet at an additional $20 USD. The receptionist offered us two additional breakfast coupons if we wanted to eat breakfast right away. We took up that offer after having been awake for more than 5 hours and ready to fill up on free food before heading into expensive Copenhagen for the day.
