“Small rooms, poor shower, but good value overall”
Reviewed 13 November 2011

This was the third time I've stayed at the Cabinn Scandanavia. It's in a quiet area, but only a short walk from the town centre. It's next to a long sequence of lakes which are nice for a walk, as long as you avoid the joggers!

The rooms are as everyone else describes - small, but generally clean, and the same goes for the bathrooms. The one disappointment is the shower - as well as feeling a bit cramped, the shower heads are terrible - it's like standing underneath a tap.

Breakfast is OK, but not great value - I'd leave early and go to a local cafe. This is a budget hotel, and if you go room only then you can't complain about the price (well, not by Copenhagen standards anyway).

The Hotel was nice & the room that we booked was exactly what we saw on Internet.
We booked a Single Quadruple(for 4 persons) Room, & it was tiny a room but everything necessary was provided in it...
The best part was they allowed to check in early morning instead of their standard check-in time of 15:00 without any extra cost which I appreciate as we got to freshen up before we went sight seeing...

The Hotel is a little away from the central station but that can be ignored as the hotel is near to a Metro station, so you can move around easily....

I would say it was a Nice experience staying in Cabinn Scandinavia, Copenhagen, Denmark.

I will try to add to the earlier reviews, which I agree with.
If you book online the reservation is not guaranteed and if you do not check in by 6pm they will give away your room. Options are to fax or telephone with credit card to guarantee. It worked fine for me.

Easy from airport via Metro. Friendly staff. At least 15 minute walk to the edge of city center and seemed much longer coming back from main Trivoli entrance at night. I did not see the budget restaurants nearby. The area was dark and quiet at night. They do sell a few sandwiches and snacks at reception if you need.

Breakfast was optional with meats, breads, cereal, yogurt, but limited fruit--just apples if I remember correctly.

I splurged on the commodore room for 1, but I think the additional space is taken up by the second bed, so you probably have as much space to move around in a single. One bed was against a wall, then a 24-in or so small table, then the other single bed against the wall under the window. I took the bed by the wall because I thought I would bang into the windowsill, but I bashed my arm and then my head one time on the wall, so maybe sleep with your head at the foot of the bed where the wall ends. There's also the bunk bed overhead to watch out for if you are tall.

There were clothes hangers and a couple of shelves for clothes, but not really anywhere leave an open suitcase on the holder. I am glad I was in the room alone. I can't imagine it with 3 people.

I think the bathroom is the smallest I've ever had. A tall person would have trouble bending at all in the shower without coming in contact with the circular shower curtain. The floor dried quickly after my shower.

I had room on back side 3rd floor, I think, because I had asked for a quiet location. As a light sleeper, I still had to close the window to sirens, cars coming/going from parking lot, church bells, but the room temp was comfortable when outside temp 50-60F. Only noise inside was an occasional door closing.

If you sleep well in the cabin of an overnight car ferry you'll feel quite at home here :) Staff is very friendly and accommodating, rooms are very small but absolutely clean and practical, you can enjoy TV, FREE internet access in your room, bathroom/WC is practical and clean. The entire environment is a bit spartan but - hey - in return you get a comfortable accommodation in the centre of Copenhagen and at a price that is unusually low for Denmark. The morning breakfast buffett has good variety (though you can skip what is called 'coffee' :)) - again, clean and friendly. The entire place reminds me on happy times in large youth hostels and if you don't mind the somewhat informal way of a youth hostel you'll enjoy your stay here.
Several low cost restaurants within short distance.
The centre of Copenhagen and Metro/Bus are within easy reach and to/from the airport you'll need about 1 hour (depending on the time of day), by taxi roughly DKK 250.
I would stafy here any time and definitely recommend the hotel to friends who undertake a budget trip to Copenhagen.

Room Tip: Rooms to roadside can be noisy during the day but are quiet at night. You can leave the windows open...

I have stayed at a couple of CabInns (also the one in Odense). They seem to have the same layout and service. The rooms are small and the beds are more like bunk-beds. Basically you get what you pay for - a place to sleep and shower. For the price, these hotels are a good option if you just need a place to sleep for the night before an early morning flight or if you're not going to spending much time in the room. The rooms I've stayed in have a small desk so you can use your laptop.

The room was small as expected, however, it was not cleaned properly. We stayed there for 3 nights. The last night it rained heavily and the next morning when we got up there was a water leakage. .

When you compare with other Copenhagen hotels, it has really affordable price. The rooms were too small but it is ok for short stays. People were friendly and helpful. It has a good location, city center is in walking distance like 10 mins.
