Hotel Danmark is a four-star boutique hotel with 89 rooms and suites offering great value for money. Ideal for a weekend, rooms are compact, with everything you need for a comfortable stay – order a fitness kit to your room, indulge in a glass or two during ‘wine hour’, and kick back with room service. The hotel is within walking distance of Denmark’s National Museum and Thorvaldsen Museum, and the on-site restaurant serves great Danish food. There’s also a rooftop bar where you can mingle with other guests, and a slick indoor ‘vineyard’ for late-night drinks.
Rooms from £60 per night.

Drinks at the award-winning cocktail bar TATA are also a must.
