Copenhagen has the usual range of accommodation choices, from luxury to low budget, but hotels are generally expensive, and there are fewer five-star options than one might expect in such a cosmopolitan city. Book as far in advance as possible, particularly during the summer. Check for weekend, off-season and senior discounts.
Hotels are spread throughout the city. The largest concentration of hotels is near the Central Railroad Station along Vesterbrogade and Istedgade, a good location and generally safe in spite of the sometimes seedy surroundings. More atmospheric accommodations can be found around Nyhavn and along the water, and a number of boutique-hotels have opened. Because rooms in Danish hotels tend to be fairly small, there's usually a large lobby or sitting room for relaxing.
Copenhagen's exceptional public transportation system makes it easy to stay in one of the surrounding suburbs, where hotels tend to be less expensive. Many Danish vandrerhjem (youth hostels) both in and out of the city center have pleasant and reasonably priced family rooms with private baths, and they are often housed in old manors.
