Value hotels

Ibsens Hotel

Attractive design and a great location at low prices (well, for Copenhagen). Just don’t expect extras like toiletries or, erm, cupboards.

Avenue Hotel

Aiming higher than its nominal three-star status, with great communal areas and plenty of boutique-style touches at this Copenhagen value option.

First Hotel Kong Frederik

Location, location, location. For shopping, sightseeing and gay nightlife, it doesn’t get any better than this townhouse-style hotel.

Hotel Guldsmeden Bertrams

Like its sister hotel Axel, Bertrams takes a more organic, Bali-inspired Zen-style approach with in batik prints, wooden beds and Persian carpets.

Hotel Guldsmeden Axel

Foregoing modern lines or overstuffed luxury, an oriental path to bliss takes Balinese style in its stride with batik prints and a super spa.

CPH Living

Land lubbers; it’s time to get some sea air. Get your sea legs starboard with this cool designer barge moored in Copenhagen’s harbour.

Best Western Hotel City

High-design it ain’t, but for a fuss-free and calming alternative to come home to you couldn’t find better.
