a fCopenahgen Hotel

We are a family of six visiting Copenhagen for 4 days. in July We range from 21 yrs old to 80 years old. We would love to stay in a nice neighborhood in a good location(transportation). We are having a hard time finding a place. We had booked Abaslon,months ago, but they forgot to mention that we need three rooms and now they can't accommodate us.
Can someone help?

Hello,

"Nice" is in the eye of the beholder, of course, but I stayed at Ibsens Hotel twice and was, overall, very pleased. The location is excellent, the breakfast good (I don't think it's included though), the staff is friendly and helpful, and the rooms pretty comfortable. They even have a daily "happy hour" in the lobby/bar/longue area where guests get a complimentary drink. My only real complaint was the layout of the bathrooms, which were tiny (with tinier sinks; sink laundry didn't happen there). But, really, that was a small issue and for four days I don't think it would be the end of the world (also, I was traveling solo; the doubles might have been more spacious).

Best,

We stayed at the Kong Arthur hotel, which is a five minute walk to the Norreport station (from there, you can get anywhere in Copenhagen or Zealand, and to/from the airport). We liked it quite a bit, and found it to be very affordable for the area. It is walkable to a lot, very close to the Rosenborg Slot. It has a "cozy hour" between 5 and 6 where you get a free wine/beer/non-alcoholic beverage. We didn't have the breakfast there. But I would highly recommend the hotel, and would definitely stay there again. Also, I believe if you book directly on the hotel website, you get free access to their spa (not really our thing, but some might enjoy it).

Thank you for your info

Seems these places are booked.

We were looking at Abaslon and it looked interesting but the i read this

Different, vibrant, relaxed and lively. Walking down Istedgade, you
will experience a different and exciting side of Copenhagen where all
kinds of people hang out - students, hipsters, families with children,
etc. For many years, Istedgade was dominated by drugs, porn and
prostitutes, but today the street has cleaned somewhat up, but luckily
not too much, and is booming with shops, cafées, restaurants and bars.
Istedgade stretches from Copenhagen Central Station to Enghave Plads
and is not far from the Meatpacking District and Halmtorvet, where you
will never be bored.

"Dominated by drugs" obliviously bothered me. Any feedback?

Thanks

We enjoyed our four day visit to Copenhagen this past January. We stayed in a hotel on Istedgade a half block from the central train station and walked to dinner each night. And it gets dark early in January. I suppose I'm somewhat urban tough even though I live in a small Oregon town because we felt comfortable in the Istedgade neighborhood.

While a tourist promotion website, the following has a resonable descritiopn of the Istegade neighborhood:

I did see hand printed signs on cardboard suggesting that men not exploit women but didn't see or go out of my way to see such women.

I watched the PBS Newshour segment last night about Denmark's social welfare system. The scenery shots reminded me of many of the scenes we experienced a few months ago. But perhaps more significantly, why would any Dane need to resort to crimes against tourist when they are so happy.

JUDY WOODRUFF: But, first: Universal health care, free university
education, and generous unemployment benefits, are these the keys to
happiness? They are all offered in Denmark, the Nordic country

should look to as a model.

Once again this year, Denmark tops a United Nations poll as the
happiest nation on earth. But is this really true?

We were in Copenhagen in February for 5 days (husband, daughter, myself and father-in-law so we had 2 rooms) and stayed at the Copenhagen Mercur Hotel (used to be the Best Western Mercur). It was a very nice hotel, has an excellent breakfast buffet, staff was very friendly and helpful, is accross the street from the Vesterport station and about 2 blocks from the main station. When we were there the hotel was undergoing some renovation on lower floors but we were on the 6th floor with a balcony and had no problems with construction noise or street/train noise. Street/train noise could be a little different in the summer with windows and doors open but I do believe they have rooms that face their courtyard and they may be done with renovations. We easily walked every where, if not their subway system was easy to navigate. There were 3 grocery stores and at least 1 drugstore within a block. We would happily stay here again should we be able to make it back to Copenhagen in the future.
