Copenhagen impressions: Hotels

When I go on city trips I normally don't stay in expensive hotels. In cities, there is just so much to see and do that you never seem to get back to your hotel early and if you do, it's probably because you're exhausted and want to sleep. So I don't bother paying more for a room, I'll hardly spent any time in. If it's clean and in walking distance of the center, then it will do.

So I was rather surprised to see how well designed our two star hotel in Copenhagen was. Okay, the rooms were small, but the layout was very well layed out and the hotel lobby was even filled with design classics. How very Scandinavian...

This is the hotel we stayed in: Wake Up Copenhagen






And here are some hotels I wouldn't have mind staying in, if I had a bit of a bigger budget:

Hotel Fox







Radisson Blu Royal Hotel

I'll be staying at the Wake Up when I go to Copenhagen in a couple of weeks so I was pleased to read your post. Any tips you could offer me?

Hi MoonDoggie,

I really enjoyed the Wakeup Copenhagen. Nice clean rooms and within walking distance of the city center. The only minus point is that they are still working on the hotel, but if you sleep with the windows closed (the rooms have airco) you won't hear a thing. The hotel also rents out bikes, it's more expensive (about 120 kr.) than the city rentals but they are much more comfortable. For some more adresses you can check out the google map I made for the trip

I must admit, I didn't have time to check out all the addresses but I can strongly recommend the Glyptotek museum, Rico for lunch and juices and Lagkagehuset for the most devine pastry.

Enjoy your trip, you will love Copenhagen!

I was in that hotel lobby! So beautiful!!! I can't wait to get back to Copenhagen, it was one of the most stunning cities (and laid-back) I've ever been to. Everyone rides bicycles there. Loved seeing the 20 to 40-year-old women riding to work in their high heels!
