By train: There is a train station at the airport with direct connection to the central station (Hovedbanegården, Two trains an hour from the airport goes to Roskilde - not the the central station). It runs about every 20 minutes, takes 12 minutes. Single fare is DKK 25,50. (=EUR 4). You may also buy a blue 10-clip card for DKK 105 (EUR 14) that would also be good for transportation between the hotel and the conference place, a single fare is here DKK 17. Then use 2 clips for the trip between the airport and the central station, and one clip for the trip between your hotel and the meeting place. The 10-clip card will do for 3 days of travelling to and from the conference place, and trips from and to the airport = 10 clips in total. Buy it from the ticket office at the airport. You save DKK 82 in total with the blue clip card.
By bus: You may also take bus 250S from the airport to the Town Hall Square (Rådhuspladsen) - this is 300 m closer for Hotel Kong Frederik. This is about a 30 min ride, the bus leaves the airport every 10 minutes. 250S may also be taken from the central station, outside its east exit.
The train and bus system is integrated in København, keep your ticket or card and it is good for transfer within one hour on all trains and busses, all directions, within the zones paid for. Hotels are in zone 1, the meeting place in zone 2, and the airport in zone 4. A blue clip gives access to the zone you are in, and then the adjacent zones. To use it, make the required clips at the start of the journey, by stamping it in the yellow stamping machines at train stations, or the front left entrance in busses. For further legs of the journey, just show your clipcard to the bus driver when entering in the front right bus entrance, or to the ticket controller on board trains.
For Cab-inn, you may take the S-trains (very frequent) one station to Vesterport for cab-inn, saves you 300 m at no extra cost. Leave Vesterport station at its north exit (you come from the south), go west by Kampmannsgade 3 lights, crossing the bridge, there you reach Vodrofsvej, then go north until you reach Cab-inn on your left side. Should be about 700 m. Or take the train from the Airport one more station to Nørreport, and shift to the metro for the Forum station, which is about 200 m from the hotel. map.
Cab-inn by bus: take bus 8 or 11 in the north direction from the east exit of the central station. Exit at Åboulevarden just after crossing a bridge, with lakes on either side, and go south down Vodrofsvej 100 m.
For Kong Frederik, get to the town hall square (Rådhuspladsen), go 100 m north from the north-east corner of Rådhuspladsen by Vester Voldgade. map.
For Mayfair, leave the central station at its west exit, walk down Istedgade (west) two blocks to you get to Helgolandsgade, turn right till you get to the hotel. map.
You can also go by bus 42 or 43 from Nørreport station, walk there or take the S-trains (any train, but use front 4 wagons) north from Vesterport station one station, leave north exit, and go to north-west corner of Nørreport, by the botanical gardens.
Plan about 30-40 minutes in all from hotel to the conference center.
By taxi or car the distance is about 10 minutes. The taxi fare is about DKK 100, so if you share 4 persons in a taxi, it will be about DKK 25 per person, which is about 2 times the cost on a blue-card clip, or 50 % more than the cost of a normal train/bus fare.
