There are plenty of reasons to visit Copenhagen. The Danish capital is the perfect destination for pastry & coffee lovers, fine-dining gastronomes, and admirers of architecture, culture & art, etc. For one, I was there for the pastry scenes and was thoroughly impressed by them! Whatever your reason for visiting, where to stay in Copenhagen is then the next question as you want to find the perfect spot to enjoy the best of the city.
Copenhagen is a relatively compact city and it is very walkable/cyclable. Therefore, it is a no-brainer to stay somewhere central to the city centre. Whether you choose to stay near the Tivoli Gardens or the Nyhavn, they are all just within a short walk from one another and easy to navigate around.
As you would’ve probably expected, accommodation in Copenhagen is not exactly the cheapest. But you can count on them to be full of Scandinavian charm with their stylish and aesthetic designs at every corner.

Hotel Skt Petri (££)
With a laidback luxury concept, Hotel Skt Petri is a fantastic hotel to stay at when in Copenhagen. It is centrally located by the corner of the Latin Quarter, just off the main shopping street of the city. The hotel is housed in a former department store but has recently undergone a revamp by renowned Norwegian design studio Anemone Wille Våge (who’s also responsible for The Thief Hotel in Oslo).

25hours Hotels are known to carry a fun vibrant vibe and it is no exception at their first Scandinavian property in Copenhagen – 25 hours Hotels Indre By. It is centrally located between the Round Tower and Kobmagergade shopping street, and nearby the David Collection museum.

Its interiors showcase an outstanding blend of bohemian tropical and contemporary urban style, with plenty of beautiful plantings adorning the hotel atrium. If you’re looking for an unforgettable stay in Copenhagen, this is the one. It may not be bang on central in the city, but is only a quick 15-minute walk away from the main sights and shops – so that’s still very much central but a little bit away from the hustle & bustle.
