Copenhagen Accommodation FAQs
What you think of a Copenhagen hotel room will depend, of course, on where you stay and what you’re used to. To many Americans, European hotel rooms will seem smaller. This is true of Copenhagen hotel rooms too. Bedding can be a little different too – there is no “top sheet” and only a duvet or comforter. Most hotels do not have Air Conditioning and you will need an EU plug or adapter on electrical appliances.
Yes, there are short term rental sites that offer lodging in Copenhagen. It’s very easy to find an Airbnb property using their site or any other short term rental sites. These can be great alternatives for travelers especially because hotels are often fully booked through most of the year. There are many new hotels being built, so Copenhagen is expanding the number of hotel rooms available. Still, short term rentals are a great option.
If you stay in an Airbnb or other short term rental, be prepared for a cozier apartment if you stay in the city center. There you may have less space than you’re used to in your home city.
Most tourist attractions are located in the Centrum (City Center) or Vesterbro neighborhoods. City Hall is basically the center of the tourist zone and attractions are centered around them. For this reason, you’ll notice that most of the hotels are centered around this area. You’ll find more Airbnb rentals available in the neighborhoods just outside of the city hall zone. It’s also easy to stay in those neighborhoods and use public transport to reach attractions. You’ll find it very easy to navigate Copenhagen and staying slightly farther out will save you a little money too.
