distances in Copenhagen are small. There are practically no hotels just next to the cruise ships though, they depart a bit away from the centre.

You´ll find some hotel suggestions here:


(RLD´meaning the Red Light District in that thread).

If you have specific wishes, more information will probably turn up here as well.

I'd recommend anything near Nyhavn or even around Tivoli, but basically I agree with what Joen wrote above.

I will second the area around Nyhavn also close to your cruise liners... Not the cheapest area though.. so all about budgets...

We stayed at The Square on City Hall square (at the suggestion of two cruisers who stayed there the previous year whom I met on sister website cruisecritic) and five mintues walk to Tivoli for two nights this past June before our cruise. On my last visit to Copenhagen in June 2007 the noise around Nyhavn all night long really disrupted my sleep at the un-airconditioned Admiral Hotel so I did not want to stay in that area again. This trip, we had a great and quiet room high on the side street and enjoyed it and the excellent breakfast buffet very much.

Also, it was a great location near the art museum and the absolutely do not miss (and free) history museum. Too many inebriated people hanging around Nyhavn in the summer months IMO. BTW, it was less than 15 minutes taxi ride from our hotel to Langeline pier.

Central Copenhagen is flat and easily walkable no matter where you decide to stay.

Enjoy your visit!
