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. 



CPH Apartment Copenhagen

Four self-catering apartments each with two bedrooms for up to four guests, with mini kitchen, spanning four floors of a residential apartment block.

Bed & Breakfast Bonvie

Cottage Farm Bed & Breakfast Dragor

This idyllic, thatched roof farmhouse in picturesque fishing village Dragor a few miles from Copenhagen International Airport may not be the best choice for anyone planning a whistle stop tour of Copenhagen's biggest attractions, but this rural oasis from the city bustle is little more than 20 minutes away from downtown Copenhagen by bus or car. This farmhouse B&B offers airy, ensuite rooms decorated in a classic English style with an amazing homemade breakfast, and the many farm animals add to the rural atmosphere.

The real treat here is the location, in one of Copenhagen's most attractive neighborhoods, Christianshavn, with its picturesque canals, cobbled streets and lively cafes and bars. Many of Copenhagen's attractions are within walking distance, such as Christiania or even Nyhavn, though if you prefer, the Metro will have you in the downtown district in minutes. Welcoming host Tina has single and double rooms on offer, with breakfast an optional extra. Facilities include internet access and YV in rooms and private entrance.

Arctic Janus Copenhagen

Low-cost accommodation in the unusual setting of a houseboat just off Strandgade in Christianshavn (right next to Noma restaurant), affording great views of Nyhavn and the Royal Theatre. The houseboat has not been converted at all so eight rooms are small and fairly basic (cabin bunks), but Arctic Janus offers instead friendly hosts, an offbeat experience and an unbeatable location (not to mention cheap rates). Breakfast offered though not included in room rate.

Rye 115 Hotel

Honored as one of the best small hotels in Europe, homely Hotel Rye has just 16 rooms and a friendly family atmosphere that makes it feel more like a guesthouse than a hotel. Located a little out of the city center, downtown Copenhagen and all its attractions can easily be reached from the nearby Ryparken S-toget station. Hotel Rye may be lacking in some of the fancy facilities of bigger hotels, but makes up for it with small details like the snug house slippers and kimonos provided in all rooms for hotel guests.
