Copenhagen has a lot going for it as a family-friendly vacation destination. Let’s start with the country itself, Denmark, once home to famed fairy tale author Hans Christian Andersen and today, according to studies, the happiest people on Earth. Denmark and its capital have a lot to inspire a happy story of your own on your next family trip. Many of Copenhagen’s attractions are close together, conveniently within walking distance from most downtown hotels. Here are five centrally-located hotels in Copenhagen that offer tons to see and do close by and easy access to public transit links to explore beyond the center.
Enjoy an Inspired Garden View
Copenhagen Plaza Hotel sits across the street from Tivoli Gardens (the inspiration for Disneyland), with many restaurants and attractions mere steps from the hotel. The Central Train Station is within walking distance as well. Copenhagen Plaza offers everything you would expect of a four-star hotel, everything except the astronomical price tag, that is. This hotel offers a great choice for affordable luxury and convenience in the heart of Copenhagen.
Comfort for Families at a Boutique Hotel
The rooms are more spacious than most boutique hotels at First Hotel Mayfair, making it a great option for families. The 106-room hotel offers a variety of rooms to accommodate the needs of any traveler. Centrally located, it’s within walking distance to many Copenhagen attractions like the Tycho Brahe Planetarium as well as many restaurants and shops. First Hotel Mayfair’s location makes getting around Copenhagen a snap with so much to see and do just a few steps away.
Stay in Inexpensive ’60s-Inspired Splendor
Environmentally conscious Hotel Alexandra was recently renovated to return all of its rooms to the Danish style of the ’50s and ’60s. This hotel is a great combination of historic architecture and modern amenities close to Radhuspladsen, Tivoli Gardens, and the Town Hall Square. Hotel Alexandra offers cool central comfort and convenience for families.
A Family-Friendly Four Star
Tivoli Hotel in central Copenhagen is close to Tivoli Garden and Stroget, the car-free shopping district. This hotel has the most to appeal to kids, including an indoor swimming pool, a kids’ pool, and an enormous playroom with games, toys, air hockey, table tennis, and a bouncy castle. The hotel also has an outdoor playground for kids to enjoy. The rooms are also all soundproof, a bonus if your crew is a bit rambunctious after playing. Tivoli Hotel clearly welcomes families and kids as guests.
An Affordable Stay in a Historic Copenhagen Hotel
The Savoy Hotel is a preferred choice for families looking for a budget hotel in the heart of historic Copenhagen. It has a variety of rooms to choose from, and they all include free breakfast each morning with a booking. The biggest benefit of the Savoy is the central location. Many main attractions are close by, including Frederiksberg Garden and the Tycho Brahe Planetarium. The great price and location of the Savoy make it a great choice for families looking for value.
