We’re located in the old part of downtown Copenhagen, next to City Hall Square. Our location is outstanding for Copenhagen hotspots, whether it's the nightlife, the longest walking street in the world (Stroget), restaurants, theatres or attractions like Tivoli, the harbour beach or museums, galleries or parliament. Bohemian Christiania and the world famous the Little Mermaid are also close by.

With handy transport links on your doorstep, you are within easy reach of everything that the city and the rest of Denmark has to offer.

Our style is relaxed, cosy and Scandinavian, made in a modern way. Our lounge provides the ideal surroundings to chill out, relax or socialise with other guests.

Grab a free book or leave one for others in our book exchange.

If you're looking for more liquid entertainment, make yourself comfortable in one of downtown’s cheapest bars, located right in the lounge area—here you can enjoy playing pool, foosball or darts with your (new) friends. We’ve got tournaments and Happy Hour every night.

We also have free notebooks to surf on the internet,

Conveniently located right next to Norreport station which is the metro station with metros running directly to Copenhagen Airport on only 12 minutes. The metro and S-tog station Norreport is only 700 meter from the CPH Downtown which gives easy access to the whole of Copenhagen and the rest of Denmark.

From Copenhagen Airport: take the metro to station Norreport, cross the street and go down Norregade \\\'Nytorv Radhustrade (all same street). CPH Downtown is located in the square opposite the fountain. Instead of walking you take bus 14 (heading Jydeholmen/Alekistevej ) from Norreport metro station for 3 stops, same ticket as used in the metro.

From Copenhagen Central Station: take bus 2A heading Kastrup and get off at 2nd stop (at the canal) walk down Radhusstrade for 75 meters to the square. CPH Downtown is located in the square opposite the fountain. Alternatively you can walk its only 500 meters; walk down Tietgensgade (backside of Tivoli) and keep going to Stormgade, turn left first time and then turn right at Langangsstrade for 100 meters to the square.

Located Near

We're located near the pedestrian shopping street Stroget (two minutes' walk). Stroget winds its way through the inner city, with its shops full of world-class Danish design, fashions and much more. The Tivoli is only four minutes' walk away and is Denmark's most visited attraction and the third most visited amusement park in Europe.
