When it comes to cool capitals, Denmark’s Copenhagen oozes stylish, sophisticated charm – from the minimal-chic coffee shops and bakeries, to the hygge-channeling restaurants and folksy boutique shops and galleries. It does a smart line in hotels, too – whether you’re looking for a contemporary take on classic Scandi stylings, somewhere with more of a vintage feel, or a wallet-friendly crash pad. You’re sure to find something that suits you in our list of the city’s top hotels.

Now from $62 per night

Who ever said that hostels can’t be luxurious? That’s the philosophy at Steel House, set on the Copenhagen Lakes just a few minutes from famous Tivoli gardens and the central railway station. With a gym, pool and café – not to mention games room, cinema and bike hire – it has all the amenities that you’d hope for from a hotel, but at amazingly wallet-friendly prices. Don’t fancy classic dorm-style rooms? Hire a private double, with your own terrace overlooking the city.

Steps from Copenhagen’s harbour, this regal stone-fronted hotel gives you immediate access to all of the city’s waterside joys: the opera house, Amalie garden and Instagram-beloved Little Mermaid statue included. The contemporary rooms, with their beamed ceilings and neutral tones, bring Scandi style to business travellers and holidaymakers alike – and some have floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the harbour itself. Restaurant SALT serves up European dishes with a local touch – think steak tartare with Himmerland cattle or gnocchi with wild garlic and North Sea cheese.

Vintage design geeks look no further – Hotel Alexandra has spent the last two decades sourcing a top-notch collection of mid-century Danish furniture, and has put each unique piece to work in its 61 rooms. The hotel calls itself a bit of a ‘living museum’, and it feels this way from the fabulously styled lobby – furnished with books and an eye-catching rainbow glove cabinet – to suites stuffed with masterpieces by Verner Panton, Arne Jacobsen and Hans Olsen.

One of Copenhagen’s essential must-sees, the magical, historic Tivoli gardens are a riot of vintage fairground rides, restaurants and live-music concerts. And you can’t get much closer than the citizenM, set just a three-minute walk away from the entrance. The hotel’s interior is suitably whimsical too, with bright splashes of colour, funky art pieces and a big open bar and restaurant area for socialising. Cleverly designed compact rooms, for couples or business travellers, maximise storage with drawers under the bed.

Foodies will love this trendy Vesterbro place, owned by Copenhagen food collective Cofoco – comprised of a dozen cool city eateries, ranging from pizza spots to izakayas and seafood grills. Mind you there’s no need to head offsite; the Parisian vibe that runs from the lobby through to the rooms (ranging from cute singles to spacious suites sleeping four) extends as far as the lovely café. Start your day off with a flaky croissant and espresso, or pop by mid-afternoon for a glass of natural wine.

    Copenhagen is best seen the local way – by bike – and when you stay at this hotel near Tivoli you can hire a set of wheels to get touring. Other comforts such as fitness centre, laundry service and on-site parking make this a great bet for families or couples who are after classic luxury.
