Please help me determine a clean hotel that is centrally located in the city to many attractions. There are so many reviews that are both positive and negative about the same location that it is confusing to find the right place for my husband and I to stay for five nights in June. Thank you so much for suggestions...
We stayed at the Kong Arthur hotel, which is very convenient to the Norreport Station. We like to walk a lot, so we only used public transportation to some of the further away places in Copenhagen. It's pretty close to Rosenborg Castle, and walkable to Tivoli, the National Museum, Christiansborg, etc. We walked to Christianshavn from there too, although some might think that is a bit far (you could easily take the metro from Norreport to Christianshavn however).
Our room was clean and nice, and it was a good price. We didn't eat the hotel breakfast, but it looked great. It has a free "cozy hour" each day between 5 and 6 p.m. where you get a free beverage.
Last month we stayed at the Mercur Hotel, used to be the Best Western Mercur, and were very happy with our stay. It is about 2 1/2 to 3 blocks from the main station directly in front of the Vesterport station and behind the SAS/Radisson Blu Hotel. Easy walk to Tivoli and lots of other things. They were remodeling but I think were about half way through it. Breakfast was excellent, my 4 year old loved the pancakes with nutella and fruit every morning, and it was plentiful. We were on the top floor (6th) and didn't have any issue with street or train noise and the balacony we had would be wonderful in the warmer months. Cost was very reasonable , hotel was clean and the staff were excellent. We will stay again if we get the chance to go back.
Last summer I stayed Phoenix Copenhagen. It's near one of my favorite parts of the city, Nyhavn. Great continental breakfast and staff. Plus, right near the Kongens Nytorv Metro station and Amalienborg as well. I happened to get a good rate with a last-minute booking on Orbitz.
But, in my opinion, the city is so walkable and connected by public transit that you can't go wrong with a number of hotels in most of the major neighborhoods. However, another time I stayed near the main train station, which didn't bother me too much, but others may find it a little rough around the edges, or as rough as Copenhagen gets (which really isn't much when compared to most urban areas in the world).
I also found reviews of Copenhagen hotels are all over the place, I think because everyone has wildly different expectations (for example, the high prices and what you get for it in CPH vs. less expensive cities).
I can absolutely recommend 71 Nyhavn Hotel. It's expensive, but the location, view, breakfast and rooms were of a very high standard. It's owned by this company: http://www.arp-hansen.dk It might be their company has other good options as well.
