As with all of Scandinavia, Copenhagen is not cheap and the accommodation is no exception. That said, there are some very reasonable options and if you’re able to splash out then there are some beautiful design hotels. While in the city, we tried out two different hotels – the Andersen Boutique Hotel, and a budget option called Annex Hotel. Both are owned by the same hotel group and are just across the road from one another in the trendy and very conveniently located Vesterbro area. We were able to walk to pretty much everywhere we wanted to go to and the hotels were just 5-minutes walk away from the central train station, making our arrival super easy. We’d recommend both hotels – the only consideration is your budget,
Here are some details and photos from each hotel.
This hotel showcases Danish design with colorful Designers Guild wallpapers, cushions and curtains. There are free treats on every floor of the stairwell as well as a complimentary wine hour from 5-6pm each day.
Rates start from DKK 1245 (£122)for ‘The Cool Room’ per night.
The Annex is a colourful budget hotel with a cosy common room that feels like someone’s living room. Unlike some budget hotels, little extras are available such as towels and free shampoo and shower gel. The location is perfect, right next to the meatpacking district and within 5-minutes walk of Tivoli Gardens. It’s a great budget option for your stay in the center.
Rates start from DKK 495 (£48) for a double room per night.
There are plenty of flights from the UK to Copenhagen. SAS operates from Aberdeen, Birmingham, Heathrow, Newcastle and Manchester. Alternatives include British Airways from Heathrow; EasyJet from Bristol, Edinburgh, Gatwick, Luton, Stansted and Manchester; and Norwegian from Edinburgh and Gatwick (we flew with Norwegian).
Thank you to the Absalon Hotel group for sponsoring our stay at their hotels Copenhagen. As always, all opinions are our own.
Things to do in Copenhagen
We’ve also written about all our favourite things to do in Copenhagen, focusing in particular on the hygge things to do in the city. Here’s an excerpt from the piece:
“Despite not being Danish or growing up with this concept, an essence of warmth and cosiness is one of the things I enjoy most in life. It’s why I love the seasons and wrapping up warm on cold winter nights. It’s even why I chose to come back to London – for the warmth and togetherness of family and friends. So when Steve’s birthday came round this year and I scanned the map of Europe looking for somewhere to go, my eyes rested on Denmark. What better way to celebrate than an exploration of all things hygge? So off we went to Copenhagenfor a three-night trip in the city.
“As always, our focus was on finding special places worth sharing, but this time we also wanted them to embody a sense of hygge. These were our favourite finds in Copenhagen. Most are situated around the hip Vesterbro district as that is where we stayed in Copenhagen.”
