“If you stay at an Airbnb, you’ll get to be in neighborhoods that are cool but that still lack hotels — like Nørrebro, which has some really interesting architecture, shops, and cafés. This townhouse (from $140; has three bedrooms and a backyard.” —Kristina Neel Jakobsen, project manager, Danish Architecture Centre

Hotel Alexandra (doubles from $119; is the rare design hotel that feels authentic. Each room is decorated differently, with vintage Danish Modern furniture. And the location is great — right by the City Hall.” —Sine Schmidt, co-founder of tour company Cph:cool

The Central Hotel & Café ($270; sits on top of a tiny coffee shop and has only one room, which the owner decorated like a home, with lovely green leaf wallpaper. Breakfast is served down the street in the owner’s café, Granola.” —Anne Black, creator of the lifestyle boutique Black
