Summer 2010 - What better way to kick off the holidays with a massive tour around new parts of Europe. Scandinavia and Russia has always been a little bit different as a destination but one that I have always thought I would be seeing one day. So a 21 days of Contiki-goodness, what (mis)adventures lie ahead.
The luxury of living in London …
We made it to Denmark and it has already been an interesting experience! We didn't get to bed until 3am this morning and had to get up at 6am to catch the trolley to the train station. The train to Hamburg left at 8:15am. We changed trains in Hamburg and then headed to Copenhagen. After 2 hours in the train the weirdest thing happened. Our train …
We finally arrived, landing around 3ish local. No problems with SAS, and neither of us remember the flight. No, it's not that it wasn;t memorable, but because we both fell asleep before we even took off! We had a whole coach row to ourselves, so at least we weren't seen drooling. Michael said later that when he awoke as we were landing he didn;t …
It's Denmark, you gotta have at least one true Hamlet quote! Well, maybe not the Jellyicious part....but Thrift is the key for the day, especially after last nights tres expensive dining experience. At least it was good! So, I awoke around six, refreshed and ready to start the day. The last dream I had was me looking into a mirror, only the …
Today we flew from Brussels to Munich, Germany. We rented a car for 4 days and are headed to Salzburg, Austria (Beethoven's old hangout). I wanted to fill you in on what happened during my cruise. It's quite long, I will admit, a bit dull. Nothing terrible exciting or jawdropping happened on the cruise. Except for the fact that …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Cabinn City Copenhagen
Having read the reviews I was prepared for a small room here, and it really was small. We used the pull out bed which rises up to the same level as the other bed but it meant that there was not really a great deal of room to do anything but sit on the bed! There was a kettle, but no milk nor sugar and they only replenished the coffee once during our stay of 3 nights.
The bathroom was clean and was small. However, beware as the sink and the shower use the same taps, you have to turn a handle...and if you arent careful you could end up having a shower when you didnt plan to!
There are blinds and not curtains which let all of the light in meaning that the room was very light and i got little sleep.
Check in was at 3pm only, we turned up at 12 as most hotels we have stayed in allow you to check in early, but it is not possible here. They offered us storgae for our luggage at a cost or we could leave it in reception, which is what we did, and by the look of it a lot of other people did he same.
All in all, the location of the hotel was great, right next to the railway station, tivoli and a short walk to the centre. The size was bearable, but only for a few nights! It was a nice hotel, but i think for the price we paid we would have got a bit more.
Great they have got it right
Stayed here in September after 3 days in berlin and was here for 3 nights. Was not expecting a lot but was surprosed. Great clean room, small but all you need , nice toutches free coffee tea and wirless niternet, in berlin I payed 110 Euro and got none of this and also breakfast was 15 Euro extra. So cab inn was great. Was worried about noise after seeing the corridor but no problem and the rooms are soundproof.
Breakfast was a little light but still adequate.
Anyone who is travelling alone and pays more for hotel in Copenhagen is waisting money. Did I mention the Location ,, great walking distance to all you need to see in Copenhagen.
So don't hesitate go for it well you won't get a better bargan than this in Copenhagen
Too uncomfortable for me
I read the reviews before going and expected the small room with the wet bathroom. Even so, I found it disappointing and wouldn't recommend the place to anyone but the most budget minded (if only it were cheap, then it might not feel like such a rip off).
The bunk beds aren't just problematic because they're bunk beds -- they're very skinny. Maybe it's like a cruise ship, I wouldn't know, but it was definitely like sleeping on a European train.
About the service: yes the front desk speaks English, but then, so does everyone else in Denmark. There were often very long lines (it was summer, however) and I was quite disgusted that they wouldn't rent one of their bikes to us at a discount because it was 6 in the evening and they only rent by the full day. Seemed rather unaccomodating to me that we had to pay 100 kroner to go out for a couple of hours -- since there were plenty of bikes sitting there not earning them any money. It's not a negotiating kind of culture, I guess.
I wouldn't go back.
Small rooms but cheap
Rooms are really small, only compare favourable with cruise ship cabins and the breakfast buffet is quite rich but not complete.
OK for short stays and if you travel with few luggage.
Claenliness and extensive and internet access are the strenghts.
Just make sure you know what to expect
I stayed in the Cabinn City hotel for three nights in August. The hotel is in a great location, very close to the station and Tivoli (under 5 mins walk). It's a short walk to the shops and not too far to the Nyhavn area. The little mermaid statue is quite a walk away though, if that's where you're heading.
It's a cheap hotel (for Copenhagen) but still expensive as budget options go. The rooms are designed around this ship cabin idea, and that means the cheapest option (which we plumped for) has bunk beds and a tiny bathroom. There is a pull-out bed that rises to the same level as the lower bunk, but it drastically reduces the space in the room. There were also blinds rather than curtains in the window, which stopped my girlfriend from getting to sleep easily. By the third night I was getting a little fed up with the lack of space.
If it's a short stay, I think it's a good hotel for the money (and location) but i'd reconsider if you were staying for a while.
Oh, and be aware that check-in is from 3pm and no earlier. Most places don't mind you checking in a little early, but not here!
Good hotel for tourists....
We stayed here for three nights of a two-month European holiday and found the hotel to be sound. Staff were extremely helpful and provided us with great advice. This hotel is very well located for touring Copenhagen.
Our room was snug, but clean and tidy. The main problem is that we booked a double and received bunk beds, which was a bit off-putting for the price.
In a better room I would definatley stay here again.
An optimal place to stay
We spent two nights at this hotel. My wife and I had one room, and our two kids (ages 16 & 14) had another.
What you get: a good price (we paid about $125/night/room including breakfast), a great location (near Tivoli), modern amenities (private bath, TV), a friendly and helpful front desk staff (they speak english) and a decent breakfast.
What you do not get: space. The rooms are very small. After our stay we embarked on a Baltic cruise, and our standard size cruise ship cabin was larger.
If you can get over the small size of the rooms, it is hard to beat the items you get. After all, it is very expensive to stay in downtown Copenhagen, and by giving up size, you get everything else.
I found absolutely no problem staying here. I shared a double room, and although small for 2 people, it's no worse than a cruise ship room. I found the bathrooms a bit annoying though, since it's all one room, meaning there is a shower head above the sink, which is right next to the toilet. Great for multi-taskers, but annoying to have the whole room wet after a shower. Everything was very clean and quiet, and the bunk beds were very comfortable.
The location couldn't be better though, 5 mins walk to the train station, great for airport transportation. Also very near to great restaurants and shopping. Not many budget hotels in Copenhagen, but I think the cab inns are a great choice.
Copenhagen on a budget
I needed a cheap place to stay in the centre of Copenhagen. CAB INN City (1 of 3 CAB INN's in CPH) was a newly build hotel just behind TIVOLI and only 3 min. from the Town Square and shopping area. The rooms are small (but not that small), but they are clean and have everything you need - TV, the and coffee, shower, internet connection etc.
CAB INN City is just few hundre metres from the main train station. A short walk (150 m.) to Danish Design Centre is recommended if you are into that.
I will recommend this hotel to everyone (maybe not honey mooners) who wants to visit Copenhagen and not spend their money sleeping.
Prizes starts at 71 Euro for a single standard room (which is cheap for Copenhagen)
No room to swing a cat
Cab-Inn City almost next door to Tivoli only opened last month (April 2004). The location is pretty good and the hotel is very clean. The problem with it is that the rooms are VERY small! We wanted a double room. There were two bunk beds, with a third bed under the bottom bunk bed. With this third bed out (it was, of course, the one we used) there really was no room hardly to move in the room. The en-suite was so compact that when you sat on the loo, the sink came half way across your chest. It all looked very well designed - for looks and not for practicality. The shower controls were the tap controls which were well beyond easy access when you had the shower curtain drawn claustrophobically around you. The 'double' room cost 730dk per night which included breakfast - I don't know whether breakfast is compulsory but it wasn't cheap. We won't be going to Cab-Inn again. Sorry.
