"Sleep Cheap in Luxury" "Luxury"?

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 27, 2006

The chain of Cab Inn Hotels are situated around the city. Some are more central than others, but the Express claims to be 12 minutes from the centre. They must have meant by bus because walking takes an awful lot longer! Ask at reception about bus routes to the centre - there are a few.

There is no internet connection at the Express but just a few minutes away up the street in Vodroffsvej is the Cab Inn Scandinavia, a much busier big sister to the Express where they do have free internet access in the foyer - but just the one PC - and there will be a queue waiting to use it. If you take your key card to reception and tell them you are from the Express they will permit you to use it.

The rooms are tiny, with even tinier shower/toilet cubicles. It is adequate for two people sharing - the room not the cubicle! - but only just! The window didn't open more than a centimetre and on a warm summer evening it was almost unbearable. The beds were comfy enough and ours even had a third bunk! (please see extra photos to see how this can be utilised!)

We also understood there to be 24hr reception service but there wasn't - so if you want your munchies after 11pm make sure you buy them somewhere else - those chocolates/drinks/crisps sitting just beyond the metal security grid over reception lay just out of your reach until morning!

Entry to the hotel after 11pm is with your key card so don't forget to take it with you!

Breakfast is the usual continental affair, various types of bread, cereal, yoghurt, cheese, cold meat, fruit etc and the breakfast room is in the basement - there is a lift for tired legs.

Unique Quality: One of the biggest surprises here was the tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms - Whoohoo! great - but some milk and sugar would have been nice!! Hey it's a start for continental hotels anyway and I wasn't complaining - I just went out and bought some milk. Unfortunately with the room being so warm and no fridge, it went off in a few hours so I learned to take my tea black.

Directions: Nr Julius Thomsens Plads

Cab-Inn ~ the clue is in the name

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 25, 2005

Cab-Inn now have several hotels in Copenhagen. We stayed at 'Cab-Inn City', 100m south of Tivoli and Railway Station.

Being a student of architecture I was curious about Cab-Inn. As the name suggests, the rooms are like cabins, with fold down beds and tables, each room with its own compact shower 'room'. Our room fitted three people in. It was OK for space because the only time all three of us were there at the same time, we were in 'bed', asleep. The shower module was a bit small and difficult, it got very wet and steamy.

Breakfast was excellent - plenty of rolls, cheese, cold meat, juice, yoghurt, cereals etc.

Unique Quality: Because of its clever creation of compact rooms, Cab-Inn is good value in comparison with other Copenhagen Hotels - "The Best Rates in Town", they say. And I am not going to argue.

It was very clean and modern, with a large reception area with bar downstairs, with tables, chairs, TV lounge and views out onto the street.

The reception staff were fairly pleasant and all spoke excellent English. There was no curfew - I think the reception was open 24/7.

There was a friendly bar around the corner from the hotel too. The area is a bit quiet, opposite the Post Office HQ and surrounded by offices which were dead at night.

Directions: 100m directly south from the Main Railway Station.

Excellent value for a no-frills hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

I booked this hotel because it was far cheaper than any other and I was on a tight budget. Okay, so the rooms are very small, (like a cabin on a ferry-boat) but all I wanted to do was sleep, wash, get changed, and move on. -This hotel was perfect as a stop-over. The room looked out over a very busy city centre road, but soundproofing was acceptable & it didn't interfere with my nights sleep. Extremely clean. Pay the extra for the optional breakfast - well worth it!
Hotel staff were polite & friendly, reception & public areas were immaculate. I have no hesitation recommending the hotel to anyone else & will use it again myself. Perfect for those who just want a cheap, clean and quiet place to sleep!

Cheap clean small rooms

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 30, 2004

Cab Cnn is a hotel with clean functional, but small rooms.
It's located in a nice part of Copenhagen near the lakes and has rooms for 1 to 4 persons.
A good economical choice if you are not claustrophobic, because the rooms are really small.
Cab Inn is a small danish hotel chain and they have a few hotels in Copenhagen and a few more hotels located around Denmark.
This is kinda Motel 6, danish style.

Directions: 15 minutes walk from the train station.
