A great stay at City Hotel Nebo, Copenhagen, Denmark

Looking for a budget friendly hotel close to the city centre in Copenhagen? City Hotel Nebo is a great choice! Situated right next to Copenhagen Central Train Station, this good-value hotel offers different room types, delicious breakfast, and also contributes to Copenhagen’s homeless community (the hotel donates profits to, among others, WeShelter and Inner Mission). In this article, I will tell you about my experience with the hotel and hopefully this information helps you to better decide on an accommodation in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Why I have booked this accommodation

I was traveling to Copenhagen to conduct field research for my master thesis and was looking for a good-value hotel close to the city centre of Copenhagen and one that had a room with a desk and good WiFi. I didn’t want to sleep in a hostel, because I was carrying a lot of valuable stuff with me. City Hotel Nebo was a perfect choice!


City Hotel Nebo is situated right next to Copenhagen Central Train Station. It only takes a 2-minutes walk to the train station and a 5-minutes walk to Tivoli Amusement Park and the city’s main square, Rådhuspladsen.

The Room

The hotel has 8 room types:

1. Economy Single Room with Shared Bathroom
2. Single Room with Private Bathroom
3. Economy Double Room with Shared Bathroom
4. Double Room with Private Bathroom
5. Economy Triple Room with Shared Bathroom
6. Quadruple Room with Bathroom
7. Economy Quadruple Room with Shared Bathroom
8. Apartment – Ground Floor

I spend two weeks in an Economy Single Room with Shared Bathroom. This room had a single bed, work desk, cable TV, telephone, a sink, access to shared bathroom and toilet facilities, heating, wardrobe, and free WiFi. I brought my own water boiler to prepare coffee and tea on the room.

The room was simple and small, but most importantly clean. The room had a window that I was able to open and though the room was small it was light. My room was facing the back courtyard.

I was a bit worried about the shared bathroom and toilet facilities, but they were regularly cleaned, always available, and there was hot water. Totally fine!

Please note, there is no soap only shampoo at this location. So bring your own or buy a small amount at the 7-11 on the corner


The breakfast was simple, but tasty. The breakfast buffet includes corn products, bake off bread, fruit, boiled eggs, yoghurt, cheese, different types of meat, vegetables, and coffee / tea / hot chocolate. The breakfast costs DKK. 75 per person, per day and is served every day from 06.30am-10.15am.

Gluten free breakfast is available with little notice.
The restaurant is only open for breakfast. During the day and evening it is closed.


Check-in was quick and available 24/7. The hotel doesn’t serve lunch or dinner, but there are plenty of restaurants around. You can enter the hotel 24/7 with your keycard.


There are no facilities available in the hotel. Just a small hallway where you can sit and a small restaurant that serves as breakfast area.


For one night, excluding breakfast, you pay between €34 ($39) and €247 ($282) per room (for one/two persons). The hotel also has an apartment or Economy Quadruple Room with Shared Bathroom that you can share with four persons. When you book this one with three others, you pay around €39-€72 ($45-$82) per person, per night.

Comparing to other accommodations in the surrounding, this price is very reasonable! You can book this accommodation via
