Copenhagen may be one of the world’s most pleasant and gay-friendly cities, but it’s also known as one of its most expensive. Accommodation in Copenhagen is never going to come cheap, but the good news is that it is also almost universally stylish and high-quality. It’s worth splashing out on a unique boutique gay-friendly hotel to get the true Nordic design experience, but for those on a budget, there are also plenty of good-value options.
Copenhagen is an open-minded, liberal city, so gay travelers can safely book anywhere in the city. The gay-friendly hotels below are popular with gay travelers as they are near to many of Copenhagen’s gay bars, clubs, and saunas.
The most booked hotels for gay travelers are located in Vesterbro and the Latin Quater including the neighboring Nyhavn and Radhuspladsen. From here you are close to all the major sightseeing in the city plus gay nightlife, and gay play venues.
Generator specializes in cool, design-forward boutique hostels, and the Copenhagen branch does not disappoint. The dorm rooms have a minimalist style and feature custom-made bunk beds with a personal shelf, underbed locker, and individual light. The privates have a more colorful, quirky decor and come in a range of sizes. Groups can also book full dorm rooms for themselves. The hostel has a range of awesome spaces, from the bright terrace bar (complete with petanque area) to the large downstairs restaurant, designed for communal eating. There’s even shuffleboard. The buffet breakfast is tasty and good value. There’s a bit of a party hostel vibe, with regular DJ nights, but it’s big enough that you can also chill out if that’s what you prefer. Generator Copenhagen is centrally located, about 10 minutes from Nyhavn.
