The European city that’s home to the enchanted and fairytale-like Tivoli Gardens, the royal Amalienborg Palace, and the charmed Little Mermaid statue offers up a wide range of Copenhagen hotels to choose from, whether you’re seeking luxury or budget accommodations. In a city that’s often touted for its high quality of life, you’re sure to find whatever makes you happy.
Where to Stay
To orient yourself to the city, take a ride along the canals. Then, be sure to stroll along Strøget--the long pedestrian street is lined with shops and restaurants and runs to Kongens Nytorv, with its colorful bars and fabulous people-watching by the water. Many cheap Copenhagen hotels are in walking distance of these areas, which makes getting around the city easy and convenient.
If it’s Scandinavia’s green space that you seek, you might want to stay in ?sterbro, just north of the city center, or Fredericksberg, which is also known for its theater and shopping, including the flourishing flea market behind City Hall. Hotels in Copenhagen also give you access to Vesterbro, which was once a red-light district but is setting trends with its hip boutiques, outdoor cafes, music clubs, and restaurants.
