Reasonable place to stay 4 nights this May in Copenhagen with good airport access

We are going to be in Copenhagen for 4 nights in early May - and flying in/out of there. Any suggestions of a reasonably priced place to stay that is convenient to the airport and has easy access to sights. We are capable of walking and using public transportation (looks like Uber is no longer available in Denmark). Recommendations on "areas" to stay in would be appreciated. Seems like even somewhat budget places will run $200/nt. We only need safe, clean, and convenient but do require our own bathroom.

Thanks!

Hi,

You are right, Uber is not operating in Denmark (long story short: they didn't comply with the Taxi law). We do have plenty of regulated taxis though, so if you want a taxi, that's no problem.
There's a lot of sights in Indre By (Inner City), but it's also very expensive. You can possibly save money by looking at other areas. Public transport is good and efficient, so no matter where you stay you can get to the city centre.

Here's a very(!) general characteristic of the different areas in Copenhagen:
Indre By: central area (with places to shop, eat and drink), expensive, many sights, historic old buildings.
Vesterbro: Small RLD area (around Istedgade), hipster neighbourhood, cool restaurants, bars.
Frederiksberg & Østerbro: Mid-to-Upper class residential areas, nice cafés, nice parks.
Nørrebro: International vibe, more ethnic restaurants, sort of a hipster feel.
Nordhavn & Ørestad: Newly developed modern residential areas (not much to see here as a tourist IMO).
Amagerbro: More mixed, not a big tourist area.

As long as you stay close to a train or metro station, it will be easy to get to/from the airport. www.journeyplanner.dk is your friend when travelling on public transport, it makes all timetables searchable and show you some ticket prices. More info about tickets can be found on www.publictransport.dk

For the record, there are no unsafe areas in Copenhagen - so you don't need to worry about that when booking your hotel.

If "we" means two people, this is a great little apartment I stayed in a couple of years ago. It's well within your price range, is centrally located in Indre By, and just about a block from a metro station. Since I wasn't familiar with public transport in Copenhagen when I arrived, I took a taxi to keep it simple on the way there but took public transport back to the airport. It was very easy. The apartment has a lot of character, is very clean, the kitchen is new, and it has quite a bit of space for a one bedroom in Europe. I stayed there by myself for a week but it would be perfect for two. It is a walkup with some stairs that have to be navigated.

I use booking.com. I will be in Copenhagen next September for four nights and have reserved two separate bookings through booking. You might be able to find the perfect place for you.
