Thank you, I have been researching and seems that London has very good restaurants and hotels. Copenhague is very famous too, however I think Danish language is a requirement.

 

I do speak English, Italian, Spanish and French a little.

In general, english works great in most kitchens in scandinavia (norway, sweden, denmark, finland) because people often speak english as well as their native languages, and at a level way above what you can expect to find further south in Europe.

 

In Spain it was Spanish only, and the same went for my friends working in France. It was French, or nothing. 

 

San Sebastian and Barcelona are great destinations in Spain.

Copenhagen has got a great foodscene, and the creativity and style of cooking is something unusual.

I think I will give London a try, is multicultural, plenty of restaurants, hotels, etc.

All comes down to what food you'd like to cook and what ingredients you'd like to work with.

There is no 'best city' per se.
