I'm looking for a reasonably priced (under $100 a night) B&B, guesthouse or hotel (no hostels) in the capital city that's located 1-3 miles or so from the train station. Any recommendations appreciated. So far, I've not found much on the tourism websites I've visited.
What do you count as "reasonably priced"? I recently booked a stay at the Cabinn City (https://www.cabinn.com/en/hotel/cabinn-city-hotel) that came to around $95 a night for a single, including breakfast. I found very few non-hostel options that would have been much cheaper than that, although I didn't consider quite as wide an area as you are.
I stayed at Ibsens Hotel. It's less than a five minute walk from the Nørreport metro stop and an easy ride to the central train station. It's not cheap (because it's Copenhagen), but I thought the prices were reasonable and it's a very nice place.
Hope this helps!
Thanks, folks. "Reasonably priced" is a relative term. For an expensive country like Denmark, I'd say under $100 a night. I'll check out the two places you mentioned.
Another one you might consider is the Hotel Jorgensen (http://hoteljoergensen.dk/), one of the few places that's significantly cheaper than the Cabinn. I decided against it because it gets some negative reviews on Tripadvisor, although I know that doesn't necessarily mean anything.
You can save about $12 a night at the Cabinn by getting the room without breakfast. In my case, though, I figured this would be a false economy because I'd be tempted to spend that much and more on restaurant food. :)
Thanks for the tip. I'll check out the Hotel Jorgensen more thoroughly on Trip Advisor.
Does Denmark have city- and town-based B&Bs and family-run guesthouses as in most of Europe? I've seen only a few country B&Bs on its tourism website.
We spent three nights at the Hotel Nebo, on the RS guide cheap list this past January. Cheap translated to about $100 USD per night for the standard double room ensuite plus $10 USD per person per day for breakfast.. 2150 DKK for three nights including VAT. Breakfast at 65 DKK per person per day, adequate but pretty basic.
If you need to go cheap, bathrooms down the hall rooms are cheaper.
Located a half block from the central train station. I didn't have any concern walking around the neighborhood day or evenings, but some gentle folks may feel uncomfortable.
Thanks, Edgar. Looks promising.
