I have a June layover in Copenhagen requiring overnight accommodations. Arriving in Copenhagen early evening and departing early next morning. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Try the Comfort Hotel Copenhagen Airport or the Best Western Plus Hotel. They're just a very short distance from the airport.
Comfort and Clarion are just outside the door, follow the signs towards the metro to get to them. Best Western and Scandic Strandpark are close but most people wouldn't walk to them with luggage. Park Inn is close to the second metro station after the airport.
We stayed at the Hilton right at the airport .... it was great.
Hilton lost the lease at the airport, that hotel is Clarion now.
Copenhagen is very well connected to it's airport by an excellent , convenient, and easy-to-use train system. It's super easy to simply walk down to the end of the airport terminal (it's well marked) and jump on a comfortable train, and you'll be in central Copenhagen in a few minutes. The city has a wonderful subway system, too, making it a snap to get around.
You're going to be there in June, arriving early evening. It's going be light outside until at least 10 pm, maybe a bit later. Copenhagen is a delightful city, even if all you have is a few hours in the evening. If it were me, I'd take advantage of that, skip the bland airport hotel (you'll have more options to choose from in the city center), and head into the city for your overnight, and enjoy a few hours there. Or, if you would rather sleep right at the airport itself, check in to your airport hotel upon arrival, then hop on the train into the city center to enjoy the evening there, and go back to the airport hotel when it's time to catch some sleep.
We ended up booking the Comfort Inn at the airport. I would rather stash luggage there and head to city (if time permits) rather than transporting luggage downtown, even if that isn't very hard. Plus, that lets us be close to airport in the morning and if the flight is significantly delayed, we aren't committed to going downtown late to a hotel for no good reason. I hadn't fully considered how late it would remain light, so that's a great point too. Hopefully, we will have some time and energy to enjoy that! My kids (teen and tween) have made a strong request to "stay up late" that first night to see Copenhagen, which is probably to some extent a bad idea, but then again, sometimes bad ideas are fun! Thanks, everyone!
