Copenhagen Neighborhoods

Hello. We are looking at Airbnbs in several Copenhagen neighborhoods. Looking mainly in Norrebro. Any thoughts on Vesterbro? We have read it's a party neighborhood, but one Airbnb's reviews say it's a quiet place. First time in Copenhagen and we want to be fairly close to sites. We appreciate any ideas you have. Thank you!

What kind of property is it? In August I stayed in a building on the main shopping street in Copenhagen, right smack in the middle of town and tourist area. Once I went through the entrance door from the street and into the courtyard, there was, suprisingly, no street noise at all.

If you're staying in an actual neighborhood, regardless of the type of property, I would not expect there to be a lot of noise. If you can get an idea of the street, find it on Google Maps, look and see if there are a lot bars, clubs, restaurants etc. Look at it on streetview, as well.

We have been to Copenhagen twice. First time we stayed in a hotel in Nyhavn and found the area too busy and restaurants not very good. In September 2022 we stayed in an apartment in Nordhavn (STAY Seaport).

Nordhavn is a newish area being built where old docks were. It has a metro connection to the city that is amazingly fast and frequent or a slower, very scenic option is the water bus (small ferry). We liked the area - lots of young families, good cafes and a few restaurants. We mostly cooked to save money and had three supermarkets within a five minute walk to choose from.

If you want to be close to sites (depending on what interests you), check out Indre By (east of Vesterbro). It's within walking distance of many things, and we really loved staying here in December.
