Hotels in Copenhagen

Hotels in Copenhagen offer impressive accommodations in a city known for its canals, its fine dining establishments, its designer goods stores, its gardens, its friendly inhabitants, its cleanliness, its cobblestone streets and its nightlife. The best months to visit this Scandinavian gem are June and July, though winter can be a great time as well due to the many Christmas markets. Keep in mind that there are a lot of cyclists in Copenhagen, that the currency is the krone, and that although the Danish people are the happiest, they are also quite private. You won’t hear the words “please” and “thank you” often, as they are considered redundant. Hotels in Copenhagen are exciting to think about. Before we get you to hotels in Copenhagen, let’s take a look at some background information on the area to help you along the way.

While Copenhagen‘s earliest historical records come from the end of the 12th century, a recent archaeological discovery has been unearthed near today’s Kongens Nytorv, where lay a large merchant’s mansion from around 1020. During the Middle Ages, the castle of Hafn and its surrounding lands were given to Archbishop Absalon by King Valdemar I. Feuds between Catholics and Lutherans occurred during the 16th and 15th centuries. In 1711, Copenhagen lost about a third of its population to the plague. A series of conflicts in the 19th century led to the Danish Golden Age. During World War II, Copenhagen was occupied by German troops. The liberation of Denmark occurred on May 5, 1945, when British Field Marshall Bernard Montgomery overthrew the Germans.

Copenhagen has a population of around 777,000 people. The capital and most populated city in Denmark, Copenhagen is located on the Danish island Zealand’s eastern coast. Öresund Bridge connects Copenhagen and Malmö, Sweden. Copenhagen’s summers average in the mid-60s degrees Fahrenheit. Tourism, due to the city’s award-winning restaurants, its culture, its Viking history, its architecture and its location on the harbor, contributes a great deal to the city’s economy. Moreover, the city is a popular destination for cruise passengers.

  1. That water scene alone at STAY Copenhagen caught my eye, just edging out the modernized look of Hotel Herman K, my obvious second choice on this list. But as I stated on some of your previous posts, I’m far more of a nature guy, so if I can get a view of gardens, forested scenery, and in this case, water, I’m interested.

    From your description, it seems this penthouse is located a little outside of Copenhagen, which is fine for me, and being a workout warrior, gym access is another motivator for coming to STAY Copenhagen, especially if I can workout with a sea view. You just can’t beat that.

    I stated on your About page that the Nordic nations are my number one destination for world traveling, so this penthouse is in reality a serious contender when I can afford world traveling on a regular basis.

    1. Thanks again, Todd! STAY Copenhagan is definitely eye-catching. Working out with a sea view…boom! All the best to you.

  2. I have a plan for business trip in Copenhagen, so this list is definitely helpful. I love the modern look of Hotel Herman K. There are many restaurant and bars around it, so it definitely a plus point for me. The location is near my business partner’s place, so we can easily meet up near this place. I will check to book this place. Thank you so much.

  3. Copenhagen has been a place that I’ve always dreamed of visiting, but as I don’t have a lot of money for travel yet haven’t done a lot of research.

    I was surprised to read that the highs in summer for only 60 Degrees F… is it best to travel in summer I assume then? What are their temps winter-wise?

    While Hotel Herman K, and STAY Copenhagen really caught my eye as they look like a beautiful place to stay. My favorite Copenhagen Penthouse was Axel Guldsmeden specifically for it’s view! Plus it’s close a ton of various types of stores and restaurants.

    Let’s be realistic though any of these options would be great places to stay…

    I can’t wait to be able to visit this place!

    1. Hi Josh. Average summer temperatures range in mid 60s while average highs are closer to 70s. The record high is almost 93 degrees so it can get hot there. Conversely winters average at around the freezing point while the record low is -15 degrees. Glad you found a favorite and thank you for commenting!

  4. This looks amazing. Now, a friend of mine went to there, and she said that it is a beautiful city, with nice people. We will go to there, maybe in a couple of years, because I’m curious about it. They say the people are nicer than here, and I want to see that. Thanks for sharing it, we can already see where to stay! 

  5. I love Axel Guldsmeden and STAY Copenhagen. I’m not sure which to choose, though. Probably, I’ll choose STAY Copenhagen because it has the sea view, which is beautiful!

    Hotel Herman K looks very fine – nice colours and it even has stairs that I love in a penthouse- but after seeing the sea view, I’m a goner. 

  6. If I was to ever to be able to tour Europe, I definitely would want to visit Copenhagen. The Incredible City Center Penthouse caught my eye as the perfect place to relax in and close enough to restaurants and shopping. Just minutes away from the airport means that upon arrival I could be lost in paradise in no time. 

    How many quests are allowed at one time in a three bedroom penthouse?

  7. Thank you\What a unique journey. How pleasant the photographic tour of distinctive furnishings and design. Beautiful views and directions of historic Copenhagen and a wealth of tourist information makes a trip quite likely in the future for me. Thank you for the virtual stroll through Copenhagen’s room and board. A new destination has emerged.

  8. My main priority would be finding a place with good gym access. Like for me I want to know every piece of gym equipment they have how high there dumbbells go what type of cable attachments they have everything. I am really really into weight lifting so if I go anywhere then the question how will I do my workouts? Comes to mind.

    But I am sure they have some good gyms there. I am not really that interested in bars because I don’t drink and not really in coffee places because I don’t consume caffeine but it would be important to me that they have healthy gluten free food options or just like a grocery store where I could buy my own food and cooking myself.

    I like socializing though so I would like to know if there are any meetings in the area and that kind of thing. I’m a member of some worldwide fellowships and they have meetings all around the world so I might want to pick the place closest to the meetings.

    Thank you for the suggestions and the pictures were nice to look at. I will probably be back in the future.

  9. Hello, I must say that this article is very helpful and informative. I have been to Copenhagen a few times but because of my job, I did not have a chance to stay in some of these beautiful hotels. This summer I plan to go there with my kids and I think I will visit the hotel Sanders, it seems so elegant and unique. Thank you for sharing such useful info about Copenhagen.

  10. Scandinavia is known for its fantastic architecture and just looking at these photos gives you a glimpse of what you will find in the country.

    This is of interest to me because I have been looking at going to Stockholm for a gap year but I also have the option of going Copenhagen and Oslo as they are nearby.

    Since I am going on my own I will have to either have a think or save more money as some of these are quite expensive.

    But just looking at the hotels you can see how much of a great experience it would be to stay there.

    There’s something about Scandinavia that just interests me, so I’m sure I will go to Denmark soon.



    1. Josh that’s excellent that you are looking at going to Stockholm and are considering Copenhagen and Oslo as well. Please feel free to check out our Oslo and Stockholm recommendations too here:


  11. I have been to Copenhagen, since my family is in nearby Germany.  A lot of these are pretty expensive wow!  I have always stayed at bed & breakfasts.  In Europe, they are a unique and wonderful experience.  I do like the Amalienborg Palace Copenhagen, simply because it is on the water and the price is right.  Thanks for sharing.

  12. Hey nice article you have there, your thoughts are indeed invaluable. I was researching online on best hotels in Copenhagen, I was directed to this article. Having gone through this article, I am amazed with the excellent features of various hotels highlighted in this article. However, I found Nyhavan 71 features more interesting and convenient since it’s closer to Danish Royal library

  13. Hello there thanks for the review it was really helpful. Well no doubt Copenhagen is one of the most beautiful places in the world. I know a couple of people who have been there and possibly lodged in their hotel, Anderson Boutique Hotel to be precise. Their hotels are pretty expensive but are worth the price though.

  14. What a beautiful picture. It really draws you into the whole European journey, it such a signature view of the colored buildings. I always wonder how they managed to get everyone to agree to the different shades. Copenhagen has always drawn me and what could be nicer than renting a penthouse. I think the Nobis Hotel has to be my favorite, it is so glamourous and near to everything.

    So much to see and so much to do. Thanks, it was a great read and I loved all the options.
