Travel Blogs from Copenhagen
I had not really planned to go to Denmark. It turned out to be convenient to get to Copenhagen from Sydney and then to catch a flight to Reykjavik.
I had originally planned to get there by going to Tokyo then over the North Pole but that journey time would be 30 hours with 6 hours in Tokyo. The Singapore Airlines flight gets to Copenhagen …
Ah Scandinavia, the land of cold weather, vast waterways, blonde hair and home to Bjorn Bjornson, Erika Erikson, people that look similar to me and probably the highest proportion of attractive people on the globe (coincidence..?). Yes, we've made it north from Germany and now come to you from Copenhagen. To get here was a multi-stage rail and sea …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Nebo Copenhagen
On the basis of TripAdvisor reviews, we made reservations at Nebo.
Excellent value. Great location. and very clean
I have just returned from a three night stay at the Nebo and it exceeded my expectations for the price. The location right next to the side exit of the main train station was perfect, and handy for most attractions. The room though small was very clean and perfectly adequate. I found the hotel quiet but it may be noisier in peak season. I had shared facilities but always found them unoccupied,and clean.Also the breakfast room was very comfortable with a great selection of cold meats etc.The staff were helpful and friendly as everyone else was in copenhagen. Altogether a great bargain for copenhagen and I will definitely stay there again on my next visit. Unless you want to spend your holiday in your room, I cannot see the need to spend more.
my first time in europe, arrived at night, below zero temperature, so it was great that the hotel is 100m from the central station, the staff seemed odd at first but then i found its the european way,
I stayed at the Hotel Nebo for 5 nights. I found it acceptable but loud. In almost any other major European city, I would never stay at a hotel 1/2 block from the train station and in close proximity to numerous s-- shops, but in Copenhagen I had no qualms.
Copenhagen on a buget
This was a good, clean, safe, budget hotel. The staff was always friendly. There is a small buffet breakfast. We had a small room with private bath. The only criticism, and an important one, the beds. Our beds had a two inch piece of foam for the top mattress, that was very flimsy and worn. Otherwise, it is a good budget hotel that is centrally located.
Convenient location, good price/value
Nice and clean place, friendly and competent staff, very good traffic connections. The price-value-relation is pretty good, I would certainly come back to the Nebo. We had a non-smoker room with private shower/toilet, facing away from the street (which we heard can be a bit noisy at night), and it was not big or luxurious, but it was quiet and comfortable. The included breakfast was a nice extra. The location right next to the central station is useful daytime, and has not been any concern at night. Ok, the hotel is in the red light district - but that is being brushed up, and in any case, it just makes for busier streets at night, which I rather regard as a plus.
Great on a budget
Hotel Nebo was a good budget hotel. The rooms were small and there was a lot of noise from outside but the hotel was friendly, clean and did a good, but basic, breakfast. The shared bathrooms were clean and there was never a wait. The location was excellent and we could easily walk anywhere in the city. Would stay there again and recommend it to anyone wanting somewhere cheap but decent to stay.
If you are looking for basic accomodations at a good price and close to the train station Nebo can't be beat. It could not be any closer to the Central Train Station (which is VERY convenient if, like me, you aren't traveling light). The tiny room was nothing to write home about but the only time I was spending in the room was to sleep, so it was fine. The hotel clerk actually DROPPED the rate for us from 400DK to 350DK - a friend and I took singles without baths for 2 nights. The showers and toilets were down the hall and were clean. They were always free, too, despite the hotel being fully booked. There is a sink in the room along with cable tv and a small but comfortable bed. The walls were a bit thin so light sleepers may have a problem.
Great deal in Copenhagen
I can only confirm the other review below! Rated 2 stars but is in fact more 3 stars. Great place, great location, best price in town (550 for the double at hrs). Small rooms but very clean. Some w/o toilet in rooms even cheaper. Ask for room to backyard as they are more silent. I've never been sleeping so well as in those (Skandinavian) beds of Nebo Hotel!! BTW: I don't think that in the 3 star hotels around you get better rooms but their price is 200 DKK more without breakfast. Really different are only the 4to5 stars. Remember: in a mission hotel like Nebo is (DM Hotel = Danish Missioner) you always contribute to poor people with your stay. Strongly recommended for budget travellers who want to stay in the city centre.
Nice enough hotel. Right next to the train station with friendly staff and free internet. Good continental breakfast included. Smallish rooms with a double bed and shower only, but very clean. A small walk to shopping streets. Great local bar right around the corner. A good price, clean room for such an expensive city. I have no qualms about recommending this hotel, it is just not incredibly fancy.
