Central design hotel
You will be staying in Wakeup Copenhagen – Carsten Niebuhrs Gade hotel. This design-conscious getaway is near to Copenhagen Central Station, and in walking distance of Strøget shopping street and the famous Tivoli Gardens.
Designed by Danish architect Kim Utzon, it offers free WiFi and compact, air-conditioned rooms with luxury beds and a flat-screen TV. Many rooms also have great city views and all have snazzy glass-walled bathrooms.
The 24-hour lobby bar at Copenhagen Wakeup offers a variety of drinks, snacks and sandwiches. You can also make use of the handy guest computers with free internet access.
If you want to travel around, Copenhagen-style, then you can rent a bike in the hotel.
From canal walks to art galleries to excellent dining, there is plenty to see and do in this pretty Scandinavian city.
Visitor highlights include The Little Mermaid statue on the Langelinie promenade and the Hans Christian Anderson statue at City Hall Square. Or you could travel back in time at Tivoli Gardens, a 19th century amusement park with wooden rollercoasters and glittering carousels.
It goes without saying that canals are a huge feature of Copenhagen and you could drink in the sight of the colourful house boats by foot, hire bike or even boat tour. For dining and entertainment, head to the Nyhavn harbour, which is filled with restaurants, bars and a rainbow assortment of 17th-century houses overlooking the water.
For a quirkier experience, drop by Freetown, a mini-city within the city which is home to an alternative society with creative houses, galleries, music venues and eating spots.
The Wakeup Copenhagen – Carsten Niebuhrs Gade has picked up appreciative feedback from guests on TripAdvisor:
‘Best place to stay in Copenhagen. I highly recommend the place! The property is clean, spacious and the location was good (near a bus station that connects to the city centre). The electronic check-in was also convenient and the locker service is great.’
‘The hotel is close to Tivoli, but everything else can be reached easily by public transport. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room is small, but enough for two people, it’s clean and the bed is comfortable. The breakfast is good, maybe not as many choices as in a four-star hotel, but this is not a four-star hotel. For the price we paid, it is an excellent place to stay.’
‘A nice hotel in a great location! The room was nicely designed and just big enough. The location was perfect and really a great value in overall! The whole experience was just smooth and nice. I would certainly recommend the place. I was able to walk to whenever I needed to go so that was a big plus for me.’
Three nights of Nordic delights
Copenhagen is one of Europe’s most beautiful capitals, with the culture, cuisine and style to match. So why not plan ahead and give yourself a picturesque autumn or winter break to look forward to?
And if someone has a birthday coming up, then this would make a fantastic surprise…
