Where to stay in Copenhagen

There are many reasons to visit Copenhagen. The Danish capital is the perfect destination for lovers of pastries and coffee, haute cuisine gourmets and admirers of architecture, culture and art, etc. On the one hand, I was there for the confectionery scene and I was very impressed. Whatever the reason for your visit, where to stay in Copenhagen is the next question, as you want to find the perfect place to enjoy the best of the city.

Copenhagen is a relatively compact city and is very walkable or bikeable. So it’s a no-brainer to stay somewhere central in the city center. Whether you choose to stay near Tivoli Gardens or Nyhavn, they are all within walking distance of each other and easy to get around.

Unsurprisingly, accommodation in Copenhagen isn’t exactly the cheapest. But you can count on them to be full of Scandinavian charm with their sleek, aesthetic designs around every corner. Save/bookmark this article on where to stay and the best hotels in Copenhagen for your next trip!
