If you haven’t been to Denmark before, then the prospect of planning a trip to the capital Copenhagen may seem a little daunting. Denmark, like its neighboring Scandinavian and Nordic neighbors has a reputation as being a relatively expensive destination to visit. While that is true to a certain extent, depending on your point of reference and the fluctuating currency exchange on the Danish Krone, when it comes to accommodation choices there really are an enormous range of options to choose from.
In this article we outline some of our favorite hotel and accommodation options at the different price points that you might be considering.
The Nimb hotel is almost like something from another world. While there is access from the city side of the building, the Nimb is located within the iconic Tivoli Gardens. The exterior follows the fantasy theme of the gardens, but the interior is sleek and luxurious. While the Nimb has a number of high-end restaurant options, I was particularly impressed with their bar – a real treat just to be able to sit back and soak up the atmosphere.
CPH Living is a boutique hotel on a boat. A great way to really get in touch with the light and the water that defines the city of Copenhagen. The boat is moored in the city’s harbor – between the islands of Brygge and Christianshavn. Each room has its own balcony.
Corporate and business accommodation
The Radisson Collection Royal Hotel claims to be the world’s first design hotel. Constructed in 1960 by Arne Jacobsen, this hotel celebrates Danish modernism. It is in a great location and gives you easy access to the central train station of the city and also the popular Tivoli Gardens.
If you are travelling with your family, then the ideal accommodation solution is some form of self-contained apartment or private rental that gives you all the benefits of a home-away-from home.
In Copenhagen our favorite option is the Charlottehaven hotel apartments. Combining contemporary architecture with first-class facilities and service, Charlottehaven is in a great location and provides the perfect base for your Copenhagen expedition. There’s a range of different size apartments available, but if you are a family of four you will have plenty of room to relax and make this your apartment Copenhagen holiday choice.
The Scandic chain of hotels is a reliable, no-nonsense brand. Their Copenhagen property is no exception – centrally location and a contemporary design, the hotel offers impressive views of the Copenhagen lakes and the city’s skyline. The hotel includes a car-park and is within easy walking distance of the city’s central train station and the Tivoli gardens.
Even if you are on a tight budget, that does not exclude you from staying in a modern and comfortable hotel in Copenhagen. The Wake Up Copenhagen is a smartly designed hotel within easy walking distance of the central train station of the city. Simple, functional, and affordable. The rooms aren’t large, so this is an ideal choice if you are travelling by yourself. If you are just looking for somewhere to sleep each night then the Wake Up Copenhagen hotel is an ideal choice.
