We’ve recently added some hotels in Copenhagen to our website here and they are all fabulous. Our recommendations range from trendy to good value, but all of them are supremely stylish and centrally located, and with staff who look after their guests. Start planning your trip now…
1. Avenue Hotel
A laid-back haven in the trendy Frederiksberg area, this hotel has a gorgeous outside courtyard with wooden decking and a lounge bar with inviting sofas and armchairs alongside a sleek cocktail bar. The hotel was built in 1899 so has high ceilings and lots of character, and the stylish minimalist rooms have white linens, Missoni bedcovers and photographs lining the walls.
Despite the royal name and the hotel’s location in between the Rosenberg Castle and Amalienborg, the Queen’s winter residence, this is not a grand hotel but instead a good value establishment with cheerful contemporary rooms and an excellent breakfast. There’s also a 24-hour snack bar, with free coffee, tea, juices and Danish pastries. The hotel is ideally located for exploring the historic parts of the city.
3. Ibsens Hotel
Another hotel offering good value is Ibsens, located in Nansensgade in the city centre. Rooms are in categories ranging from ‘tiny’ to ‘x-large’ and prices ascend accordingly, and the hotel is decorated with art from both local and international artists. Along with two restaurants (one Italian and one Japanese) and a tapas bar, the hotel hosts a ‘cozy hour’ from 5 to 6pm, where guests can mingle and enjoy an aperitif.
The Vesterbro is rapidly gentrifying and is described as a hip and happening neighbourhood, although some find the seedier elements of the area a little much. Regardless, the staff at the Andersen are uniformly warm and friendly, going out of their way to offer excellent service. Rooms are decorated in hues of blues or pinks, with geometric prints and Philippe Stark bathrooms; those facing the courtyard are quieter. The hotel offers 24-hour stays (making late checkouts possible) and free wine during a happy hour.
