The ultimate guide to hotels in Copenhagen

7. Hotel Ottilia

Ideal for beer lovers

Carlsberg has been quenching Danish thirsts since 1847, and southwest of the center its original red-brick brewery is undergoing a transformation into a new shopping and dining district. Spread over two industrial buildings, Hotel Ottilia is the first hotel to open on site, themed around its lineage of beer brewers. Inside, wooden wall panels have been reconstructed while benches and old malt hoppers decorate the bar. Check-in takes place at the bar while a mixologist prepares welcome cocktails. Stay between 5 and 6 p.m., when complimentary wine is served. Rooms: 787 DKK (£90).

8. Bryggen Guldsmeden

Ideal for eco-warriors

The latest opening of the Danish eco-chain is one of the most sustainable hotels in Copenhagen. Beds are covered with sheets made from non-toxic materials and showers use a system based on NASA technology to reduce water consumption by 50-90%. But reducing waste does not mean giving up comfort. Decorated in bamboo and draped in plush fabrics, rooms have a dreamy, bohemian feel, while breakfast is an organic extravaganza, with highlights like blueberry salad and homemade yogurt. The Sole Factory bar and restaurant attracts a crowd of local hipsters. Rooms: DKK1,495 (£171), B&B.

9. steel house

Ideal for bargain hunters

This sleek and streamlined hostel strikes a healthy balance between style and substance. Once the headquarters of the Danish Metalworkers’ Union, the building clings to its industrial past: raw concrete walls, steel panels and exposed piping dominate the design. Despite the steely aesthetic, the place is far from austere and the service is anything but mechanical. Dorms (including a female-only option) are fitted with space-age pods, while a selection of small double and single beds suit those seeking privacy. Common areas at the hostel include a games room, cinema and lively bar. Rooms: 122 DKK (£14).
