Favorite accommodation in Copenhagen?

Interested in hearing people's favorite spots --- now that the accommodations section of the forum doesn't Scandinavia I thought I'd ask here.

Typically we like small Inns or B&Bs over large hotels, but I know a large hotel may be the easier thing in a big city. I also realize that price is high in CPH in July -- which I'm prepared for.

If you could stay anywhere -- where would it be?

Hello. If you like B&B style accommodations I would recommend the following: Bed and Breakfast Denmark. Great location www.bbdk.dk or another option would be The Cab Inn. Its a chain but has a hotel near Tivoli that I enjoyed staying at. Lastly, I would consider Hotel Nebo. www.nebo.dk

There are a number of smaller hotels near Nyhavn (north end of the Stroget) that are worth checking out. July is actually the best time to book hotels in Copenhagen, because most of them cater to business conferences so summer is actually their downtime.

The three hotels I've been to in order of niceness are: The Phoenix, very good service and one of the best breakfasts anywhere in Europe, just a couple blocks from Amalienborg palace; The Strand, about four of five blocks from Nyhavn; and The Opera, just around the corner from the Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn (this one's a little threadbare but otherwise nice). None of them are modern but they are all decent accommodations with good staff.

All three are walking distance from the metro stop in Kongens Nytorv, which is an incredibly easy ride directly from the airport (maybe 15 minutes, faster than the train from the airport into central station).

I really like the area around Nyhavn, it's quieter and cleaner than the area around the train station, city hall and Tivoli - but you can still walk down the Stroget to get to that area.

We enjoyed the Radisson Blue Royal Hotel. It is directly across from Tivoli. We had a lovely, high room. We overlooked the street and could watch the fireworks every night over at Tivoli. The room was spacious and quiet. We enjoyed eating breakfast in their café. It was expensive, but we very much liked watching all the people going to work on their bicycles. The hotel is within walking distance of everything, including the train station,.

I've only stayed in Copenhagen once, but I can recommend Ibsen's Hotel. The neighborhood is rather quiet (I wouldn't stay near the train station because of all the traffic and noise), my room was surprisingly huge, and the breakfast was one of the most unique I've encountered in a European hotel.

I commented above that we enjoyed the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, near the train station. The hotel was VERY quiet. We even had a room above the main street, overlooking Tivoli. We recommended the hotel to friends and they were also happy for three nights.

One of the very best deals is Hotel Bethel right on Nyhavn Canal. Rick Steves gives it high marks as does Tripadvisor. The room was basic but clean and delightful, the breakfast was wonderful and the staff was warm and friendly. Rick advises to book far in advance. You can't beat the location.
