For a truly Royal stay in Copenhagen, you need a hotel close to Amalienborg Palace
. This is not an area of the city bursting with hotels, but there are still rooms to be had in all price categories, whether you plan on sleeping like a princess or in the more modest household quarters.
, with its impressive architecture and decor, smart restaurant and sea views, tops our list. It doesn't come cheap, but this 250 year-old century warehouse has been exceptionally well-restored: As has Copenhagen Strand
, the result of combining two 18th-century warehouses into one hotel in 2002.
As you might expect from such an old quarter- Frederiksstaden
was designed as a model city district more than 250 years ago-almost all of the hotels on our list are brimming with history. The exception is the Scandic Front
, an impressively modern design hotel bravely displaying Copenhagen's post-millennium image.
Comfort Hotel Esplanaden
is like the Royal Family themselves; quietly classy. Its peaceful location at the foot of Kastellet
park as well as its affordable rates place it above four-star hotels like Phoenix
Budget travelers wishing to stay in this exclusive quarter have less choice. The only option is Bethel
- a sailors' hostel that now operates as a small hotel, and which singles itself out among the city's low-cost lodging with this unbeatable location right on Nyhavn
