We stayed in family room. Although our room is small for a family, room includes a seating area, fridge, microwave and coffee making facilities.
Hotel has no reception and after the booking we received the codes needed to access the room.
Wi-fi was free of charge.
Very good location. Good value for money.
Fantastic location, fantastic apartment. Extremely high standard with excellent facilities; the coffee machine was an added bonus. The apartment was spotlessly clean; Jeppe was easily contactable, responsive, polite and punctual.
Two minor issues - the bathroom, whilst it had a great shower, was well lit, had plenty of hot water and storage space, was not heated. There was a small heated towel rail but this did not have any effect on the temperature of the bathroom. Copenhagen temperatures fell to -5deg during our stay, and whilst the apartment was cosy and warm, the bathroom remained very cold. The other issue was the positioning of the reading lights above the bed - they were placed directly where you would put your head, and so it was impossible to sit up in bed. Otherwise I would highly recommend this great apartment and Nyhavn, Copenhagen !!!
Scandinavia IS expensive.
In Copenhagen you might look at this hostel, Sleep in Heaven at Struenseegade 7, Nørrebro, 2200 Copenhagen. Sleep in Heaven is a 4-minute walk from the Griffenfeldtsgade Bus Station and 10 minutes' walk from Forum Metro Station. The Rosenborg Castle is a 20 minute bus ride, or one metro stop north. The prices in hostels for a dormitory bed run 3-50usd a night. They usually have single rooms at about $125 us per night. I like Nørrebro as it's a very Danish area.
Two more hostels with decent ratings in Copenhagen are:
Danhostel Copenhagen City, H.C. Andersens Boulevard 50
Generator Copenhagen, Adelgade 5 -7, This one is a lively place, but very nicely located.
I found this apartment when looking for an affordable stay in Copenhagen on the redappleapartment site (www.redappleapartments.com).
The contact with the owner went smooth, as we arrived quite late we could pick up the key at a bar near by the apartment.
When we arrived at the apartment we found if to be clean, well equiped and it had that typical scandinavian feel. The kitchen was very usefull with all you need to cook a nice meal for yourself. A second matrass we asked was provided and also sheets and towels. We really liked our stay in this typical danish apartment.
- The location: 2 mintes walk to the metro station, 2 stops away from the heart of Copenhagen
- Well equiped kitchen
- Typical Scandinavian interior
- Smooth contact with the owner
- The price: a really fair price for a great apartment in the centre op copenhagen
- So much more space than in a hotel room
- quiet neighbourhood
Palace Hotel Copenhagen has a privileged location, in the centre of Copenhagen and is one of this city’s most wellknown hotels.
The hotel is situated right on the Town Hall Square just across the Tivoli Gardens.
Palace Hotel Copenhagen was built in 1910.
Today Palace Hotel is a new hotel within an old frame.
I've once stayed in this Hotel on one of my business trips to Copenhagen, as said, well for conferences and seminars for business travelers, but as being far from the city center, I would advice tourists to consider another options for their stays ...
The Hotel was named as Clarion before and now managed by the First Hotel Group, also well renewed building, comfy and big rooms, quality matrasses and pillows for a good sleep, minibar, cable tv, free wifi etc, meaning all the basics are available ...
My room was on the front side, so facing to the little harbour, as w the view from my window to the seaside ...
In my package rate buffet breakfast was included, well sorted, even some kindda seafood is there for ur taste, scrambled eggs and so on ...
As conclusion, I would recommend the hotel, w only contra as being far to the city center, enjoy ... :)
Just find a cheap three star hotel with bed and breakfast in the suburbs of Kopenhagen. You don't need to worry because Copenhagen centrum and the suburbs are linked by train, S-train and tram train.
bed and breakfast
good public means into city center (train, s-train, underground, tram train, bus)
I'd heard of these but never stayed in one before - a remote control hotel. Omena Hotels are a group of city centre establishments scattered around Scandanavia and provide relatively low-cost, no-frills, rooms.
The way they keep their costs down is by minimising staffing. All bookings are done on the internet and check-in is simply a matter of being given your room number and an access code online or by SMS the day before you arrive. Everything is automatic - the rooms only become available from 4 pm on your first day after which you need to use your access code firstly to get in the front door, then through a connecting door and again to access your room.
When you first enter your room the TV screen welcomes you and gives you a contact number for the off-site 24 hours "reception".
During your stay the room is not serviced unless you are staying at least four days and coming and going requires using your code. On your last day the TV screen gives you a countdown to the 12 noon check-out, after which you can still leave but your access code will no longer allow you back in. I'd assume if you overstay there would be a surcharge.
This might sound a bit impersonal but it suited me fine. The ensuite room was spacious, had all the basics required including a fridge, microwave and a kettle with a generous supply of coffee etc. The freebie WiFi was spot on and coming and going was never any problem. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom facilites fine and with a little furniture rearrangement I sorted out a work space.
The hotel's location is ideal for the central railway station, and also the Eurolines bus stop, and is within easy walking distance of the city centre. The neighbourhood, with its street girls, perhaps wouldn't suit everyone but they were quite fun (maybe I'll tell a few tales in a later tip ;-)). The 7-11 on the corner was, as always, a pleasure to grab my (very) late suppers from and my favourite pub (Pinden) was a two-minute walk (or stagger depending on which direction I was going).
So all-in-all: If you don't need the services of a receptionist and don't mind the area then for a budget central hotel this is fine.
Family room for 2 adults and 2 kids including breakfast. Place was clean, quiet and personal was OK. Advantage is because it is placed very near to main railroad station and 5 minutes walk to Tivoli.
Do you want a nice, clean, homely apartment in central Copenhagen for the price of a tiny hotel room? Then private apartments are the way to go. There are a few companies offering these in Copenhagen, but after a bit of research I plumped for Hay4U. They specialize in last minute placements, so it's no problem to go late. They basically match up private apartment owners and tourists, handling all the paperwork and making sure everyone, owner and tourist, are happy.
I picked an apartment near Norreport. It was over 60m2, with a bedroom and lounge, in a pleasant and snug old house near the northern lakes. It was walking distance from town. It was a lovely apartment, and we felt at home immediately. It belonged to a local theatre director who was often away from home directing performances, so she made a little extra cash renting out her apartment when she wasn't in it.
If you want your towels changed every day, with room service and breakfast included, then this isn't the kind of deal for you. If you aren't prepared to take a little risk (it might not be as perfect an apartment as mine) you won't want to go this route. If you are only staying a couple of nights, you might find there's no apartment available for such a short stay.
But if you are looking for great value - we only paid about 80 euros a night for the week - and to live like the locals do, with shopping, cooking and looking after yourself, then this is perfect.
Note: In respect of the owner's privacy I won't post any pictures of the apartment here, only one from the street. You'll just have to take my word that it was fantastic.
The Selandia Hotel is situated in the 'Vesterbro'district of the city just a few minutes walk from the centre.The hotel has over eighty rooms and although they are quite small are very clean and modern.All rooms come complete with an on-suite bathroom with bath,shower,hair dryer.The room itself has comfy beds,T.V,wardrobe,hair dryer and ironing board.We stayed on the top floor which is the fifth floor(most hotels in Copenhagen only have five floors).
Breakfast comes with the room and is a self service buffet serving a range of foods such as cereals,toast,cold meats,bread and cheese as well as a selection of fruit juices and coffee.There is internet access with wi-fi throughout the hotel and a computer to use any time you like free of charge.The reception staff are very friendly and helpful and will do there upmost to make your stay as pleasent as possible.Taxi's can be pre booked and payed for here and there are free maps of the city.I would certainley come back here to stay and can recommend the place to anybody visiting Copenhagen.
Very friendly and helpfull staff,security cards to operate outside doors and the lift are a great idea.
Accommodation in Copenhagen is really expensive - especially if you are budgeting - I managed to contact the Tourist office by phone for hotels with rooms still available and the cheapest available in town as otherwise the city was full was 55 euro - the youth hostels in Copenhagen were already full - I had stayed at both of them during my previous visit to Copenhagen
I had my youth hostel book with me of course and the youth hostel at Roskilde had rooms available and the price was fine - I had to be there to check in by their closing time of 9 or 10pm and because I was going to the Christmas opening of Tivioli which stays open til about midnight for all the christmas lights and restaurants and fair rides I got quickly onto the freeway and got to Roskilde in only half an hour
The youth is in a really lovely new, modern - very contemporary! - building beside a canal that comes up from the Roskilde harbour - 4 bedded large rooms with ensuite and table and semi kitchen!
Checked in and received my pincode access so that after closing time can come and go as one pleases - my room mate wanted to go to Tivoli so she came back to Copenhagen with me.
The buffet breakfast the next day is excellent - lots of excellent yoghurts and Danish breads with its wholegrains etc.
The hostel is convenient for staying at if a budget option is important for you as only half an hour by train or bus and about 10 minutes to walk from the stations to the hostel - about 20-30 minutes by car.
Right beside the harbour - really lovely place to be - the next day was Roskilde's Christmas markets so that was ideal for me as Im a Christmas market fan and collector!....and along the harbour shore is lovely - info boards that tell you the area was once a glacier bed - and across the canal is the old village with old traditinal Danish houses with thick grass mats on the roofs - a definite place to spend some time with your camera.
and only 5 minutes walk away is the famed Viking museum with its exhibition of preserved viking boats brought up from the bottom of the harbour.
This is a classical and an historical hotel in a fantastic location.
he rooms are clean, very well maintained and comfortable although a little on the small side.
The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful.
Available bike hire.
AND FREE MINI BAR :-D
With a reservation from discount site booking.com we were never going to get the best room in the hotel. But we ended up on the 5th floor in an attic room that was really too small for two people. The door key cards need to be used in the lifts to operate them, only problem was they rarely did and we just gave up several times and just used the stairs. The bathroom used to be a wetroom as the bath drained out onto the floor and then across the room to a corner drain! There was virtually no pressure for the shower either as we were too high.
If your planning on a buffet breakfast you may have to wait some time, we gave up one day as the queue for the few tables was so long. People seemed to just walk in off the street and eat there too as the lady taking our breakfast vouchers (issued at check in) seemed to be missing half the time, we came home with half of them! The breakfast bar is in a cul-de-sac area too so after you have loaded your tray you have to negociate back along the queue moving people out of the way just to get back to the tables.
All the staff there we met were nice though and all spoke good English, though as we always plan our holiday well we never really need to ask them about local knowedge. The hotel generally looks a little worn and run down with little sign of any recent improvements.
The area is next to the Central Railway station and there are quite a few seedy characters and a few drunks wandering around the area, we never had any issues with them and it added some athmosphere lol.
Two unique qualities really. Its 100m from the central station the other is its the worse hotel room I have ever stayed in... sigh
I chose this hotel because all info said that it was very close to central station, and as a single woman staying alone for one night & arriving from the airport quite late, I did not want to be searching for the hotel in the dark.
No directions had been issued by the hotel other than 'within 100 yards of Central Station'. Arriving when I did, some of the station doors were locked and I could only exit one of them. I couldnt see the hotel, although I could see a number of other ones. There were a number of unsavoury looking characters hanging around on the street. I asked a couple of people, they had never heard of the hotel. I went into 3 different hotels and asked the concierge, they couldnt or wouldnt help. I phone home to UK, and got a friend to find me the hotel phone number from the internet. Then I phoned the hotel. They stated that they could not give me directions because they didn't know where I was. I said I was outside central station and looking at the plaza, they still couldnt help me because they didn't know where I was! Took me half an hour in the dark and pouring rain, then when I arrived they didnt have me registered even though I had paid before I went. Very unhelpful staff and uncaring about their customers. Don't touch this one!
None at all, stay away
