Copenhagen has in recent times, acquired the reputation of being a gastronomic hub for holidaymakers from around the planet. That coupled with amazingly unfavourable exchange rates have translated themselves into cheap holiday stay options in the city. Here is a bird’s eye view of good budget accommodations with cool locations for Copenhagen holidays 2011:
Opened in 2005, Hotel Fox was originally a part of campaign by Volkswagen for their car of the same name. The highlight is the fact that twenty-one artists and designers came together to come up with the sixty one beautiful rooms of the hotel. Right in the heart of Copenhagen, you get an affordable accommodation with individually designed rooms.
Hotel Sct Thomas
Sandwiched between the beautiful parks in Frederiksberg and the trendy bars in Vesterbro, Hotel Sct Thomas gives ample scope to explore both. With tastefully adorned rooms, this hotel is affordable and the good part is that its locality is a residential area so that one can have a quiet time during nights.
Wake Up Copenhagen
If the slightly industrial surroundings do not seem to be bothersome to you, then Wake Up Copenhagen could be your choice for staying during your 2011 holidays there. The recently opened hotel near the main railway station affords easy accessibility to every nook and corner of the city. The chic modern interiors, compact yet comfortable rooms complete with flat-screen television sets and Wi-Fi make this hotel quite appealing as a budget choice.
Tivoli Hotel is a budget option that was opened last year as an accommodation for visitors to the theme park by the name of Tivoli Gardens. Although the hotel doesn’t live up to the charm of the 168-year old amusement park, still it has many elements that are quite suitable for families on holiday to Copenhagen. Tivoli Hotel also has great family deals on offer, in case one chooses to stay for two nights or more.
Hotel Christian IV
Situated on the gateway to royal Copenhagen, Hotel Christian IV lies between Amalienborg (the Queen’s winter residence) and the King’s Garden (also called Rosenborg Castle Gardens). The location makes the hotel a perfect base for exploring the historic quarters of the city while avoiding the crowds of the main pedestrian ways. If you choose this one for your Copenhagen holidays 2011, expect comfortable rooms with a homely underlining to them.
Danhostel Copenhagen City
The 15-floored “designer” hostel is situated in a building which was once trade union headquarters. With views over the central canal of Copenhagen, Danhostel is close to the town hall square and the railway station. The hostel features shared rooms starting with four beds and going up to ten beds each, en suite showers – the option to make reservations for private use is also offered. If you land here during your 2011 holiday break and do not have a valid international hostel card, then you’ll be charged a special guest fee.
Axel Hotel Guldsmeden
The gentrification of the old red light area near the train station has led to a mushrooming of cafes, chic fashion stores and gourmet restaurants. In spite of the fact that there are cheaper accommodation options available in Copenhagen, Axel Guldsmeden Spa Hotel stands out for its stylish bedrooms, Persian rugs, four-poster beds and beautiful stone sinks.
Right besides the Nansensgade shopping street, Ibsens Hotel lies between the city centre lakes and the downtown area. Currently undergoing renovation, this hotel showcases works by local designers. Ibsens Hotel is a stone’s throw away from the station with train connections to Sweden, so one can easily plan a multi-centre holiday in 2011.
Hotel Cph Living
For an exciting holiday stay in Copenhagen this year, book one of the boats docked along the city and have a holiday home of your own. The hotel boat lies between Christianshavn and Islands Brygge. The twelve cabin rooms have French balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows. The lazy lounge on the deck offers views across the water – the Black Diamond royal library building being one of the prominent sights.
Two giant towers leaning in opposite directions at 15 degrees house this exciting hotel which is a major landmark in the area. Due for opening in May 2011, Bella Sky will have 814 rooms and will be the biggest hotel in Scandinavia. Located between the airport and the city centre, the hotel has easy access by metro to central Copenhagen in a matter of just 10 minutes. The Sky Bar on Floor 23 offers excellent views of the city going about its business far below your feet.
