A budget alternative to Copenhagen's hotels with a more homely atmosphere.

Copenhagen’s guesthouses offer not only bed and breakfast but also a great opportunity to experience a piece of real Copenhagen in private homes. Copenhagen offers a wide selection of B&Bs, both centrally located in second and third floor apartment blocks as well as in suburban villas; a great public transport infrastructure will have you in the downtown area in minutes.

If you're looking for a central location, it doesn't come any more central than on walking street Strøget, where you can find Bed & Breakfast Bonvie. Not quite so downtown but still providing a buzzing city atmosphere is Bed & Breakfast Copenhagen in the attractive Christianshavn district of the city, while The Pea Blossom is a very homely Bed & Breakfast in the Enghave area of Vesterbro, a great neighborhood for young people.  

Not strictly a guesthouse, Hotel Rye offers a homely atmosphere from all its 16 rooms, while those looking for a novel experience could try bed and breakfast on a houseboat at Arctic Janus Copenhagen.

Many of Copenhagen's bed and breakfasts are located in the Amager district, which is handy for the airport as well as the beach, and well-connected to central Copenhagen via the efficient Metro network. These include residential apartment blocks on busy Amagerbrogade as well as more suburban villas. Further out, a taste of rural farm living is provided at Cottage Farm Bed & Breakfast in Dragør.
