The 18 Best Copenhagen Hotels 

Across all styles and price points 

When it comes to important travel decisions, deciding where to stay is a close second behind the fundamental question of where to go. When Journy trip designers are providing recommendations/hotel offers for travelers to Copenhagen, they think holistically, with considerations for for neighborhood, type of accommodation, budget, services/features, and design/aesthetic.

  • Neighborhood
    Are you okay hopping on the metro to go from one end of the city to the other for sightseeing? Do you want to be in the city center within walking distance of restaurants/nightlife? And what about shopping? If this is just a stopover from one city to the next, do you want to be near a transit hub? Geographical proximity is an important factor to consider when thinking about what neighborhood best aligns with your tastes, preferences, and priorities.
  • Type of accommodation
    Are you traveling with kids and looking for an adjoining room? Do you want two rooms on the same floor? Would you mind dozing off in a Queen bed or are you a stickler about a King? When it comes to European hotels—especially small boutique or historic properties—you can't expect the same type of accommodations as traditional American hotels, so it's important to do your research.
  • Budget
    How much you want to spend per night (or per person, per night) is arguably the most important considering when deciding where to stay.
  • Services/features
    What are your non-negotiables when it comes to hospitality services and features? Free breakfast? Free wifi? Parking? Panoramic views of the city? 
  • Design/aesthetic
    In your mind, is a hotel just a spot to catch some Zzzs, shower, scarf down breakfast, and head back out again? If so, the design and overall aesthetic of the property may not be as important of a consideration. But if you have plans to spend time around the hotel, maybe perch yourself in a corner to read or answer some emails, or head up to the rooftop restaurant for a pre-dinner drink, you may want to consider the vibe of the space—from minimalist decor with natural light streaming through large windows, to a cozy, more intimate art deco feel.

With these five considerations in mind, we've narrowed down a list of the best Copenhagen hotels across various styles and price points. But remember, travel is personal. That's why Journy builds every itinerary (complete with hotels, restaurants, activities, and transportation) from scratch, every time.
