Hotel Pre Cruise and Post Cruise

I did read about the distance between city center and cruise ports. I wanted to pick a reasonable hotel for 2 nights before my cruise in July and 2 nights after.I read about Andina Apts, and Absalon and Bethel Hotels. What about First Hotel? Also would a B and B work?

Thanks for all the help people give!

distances in central Copenhagen are relatively short, but the cruise port is a bit away from the centre and not so interesting in itself.

B&Bs are usually cheaper than hotels. I´d definitely go for a central location, which is more convenient transportwise if you don´t have that many days, and most of the Copenhagen suburbs are`nt particularly interesting, albeit some villa areas can be picturesque. Christianshavn and Frederiksberg, Østerbro and Nørrebro/Sankt Hans Torv are nice areas just outside the centre.

A lot of B&Bs can be found here:



As regards the hotels, Bethel has a very good location, but might be a bit noisy due to its closeness to Nyhavn, according to some reports. I´d recommend checking out Hotel Kong Arthur and Ibsens Hotel, as well as browsing a large booking site like www.booking.com for instance, which also has price listing options as well as reviews.

Some cruise guests might have comments as well ...

IMO Nyhavn is way to noisy in the summer months for a hotel stay and the Bethel is right in the thick of it. I stayed at the lovely Admiral there four years ago and a good night's rest was impossible.

This past June pre-cruise, we stayed at The Square Copenhagen, requesting a room on a high floor overlooking the side street and enjoyed our stay and this location very much: near City Hall, Tivoli, the amazing (and free) do-not-miss history museum, the art museum and at the bottom end of the Stroget. Central Copenhagen is a great walking city, and we walked just about everywhere.
