Walking distance to Tivoli Gardens, the train station, and Meatpacking District. Cozy guest rooms are done up in brightly colored Designers Guild textiles. Breakfast, wifi, and bikes are free. Their Concept24 is especially cool — once you check in the room is yours for a full 24 hours (awkward travel schedules be damned).
Architecture stars 3XN designed Scandinavia's largest hotel with environmentally conscious details like a living wall of vegetation. The progressively designed structure tilts at twice the angle of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, ensuring expansive views from every room. It's mid-way between the airport and city, next to the convention site Bella Center. Not the most convenient location, but if you plan on touring the architectural wonders of Ørestad (and you should) it's a great place to set up camp.
A cozy nineteenth-century townhouse nestled in the hip Vesterbro neighborhood. Rustic Balinese interiors are filled with Persian rugs and Indonesian furniture. Ask for a room facing the landscaped courtyard and don't miss the organic breakfast spread. The homemade vanilla yogurt topped with brown-bread cereal, acacia honey, and almonds is to die for.
Moorish-style palace overlooking Tivoli Gardens, the world's second oldest amusement park. Views of vintage roller coasters, Bang & Olfusen electronics, and fireplaces are a few of the perks enjoyed by guests. While antique furnishings adorn the hotel's interiors, there's an understated modernism that rings true to the typical Danish aesthetic. Curl up with a book in one of the cozy nooks or stop by Nimb Bar where artist Cathrine Raben Davidsen's pen and ink drawings decorate the walls.
