Accommodation in Copenhagen tends to be expensive, in particular in the summer months.
Two recommended standard hotels, which are relatively close to the venue, are:
Some inexpensive choices are:
- The Hotel 9 Små Hjem is pleasant and inexpensive and offers room with a kitchen.
- CabInn has several locations in Copenhagen: the Hotel City (close to Tivoli), Hotel Scandivania (Frederiksberg, close to the lakes), and Hotel Express (Frederiksberg) are the most convenient locations; the latter two are 2.5-3 km from the math department.
- WakeUp is similar to CabInn. There are two hotels in Copenhagen. One is well located downtown (Borgergade 9), and the other is close to the main train station and Tivoli.
- Generator Hostel Copenhagen offers rooms with ensuite bathroom and also budget options with shared bathroom. The hostel is well located in the city center.
