CABINN Metro
Ranked #84 of 118 Hotels in Copenhagen
Reviewed June 9, 2013

The Cabinn hotel is clean, neat and efficient. It is fine for a traveler who is spending a one night layover in Copenhagen. If your trip entails anything more than one night and you would actually like to relax, unpack, or have dinner, try another hotel.
The rooms are so efficiently designed that there is no place to put your suitcase or your clothes. The room comes equipped with a chair, but the chair impedes access to the front door. You cannot leave the chair on the floor but must return it to its hanging position off the counter if you wish to leave your room. The shower is a spout in the ceiling, activated by turning a knob on the sink which redirects the basin water to the shower. Peril awaits those who may forget to return the spout to its basin setting. You will take an unexpected shower every time you use the sink. This was the source of much amusement among our party.
While there is a kitchen in the hotel it is not available for individual guests. Dinner is not served and there is no room service. Breakfast is served in the basement. Need I say more?
The hotel appears to be understaffed, with no more than one or two people who are inevitably besieged by customers. The luggage room is in the parking lot and you should not expect someone to help you with your luggage.
There is a market niche for this hotel. It is a good hotel for young, solo travelers on a budget with few needs or expectations. If this is not you, choose another hotel.

The Hotel is pretty close to the Copenhagen Airport, we were told it's the 2nd Train stop but we took the Taxi because we have so much luggage. It's a modern hotel , the room is small but very clean, something different from the other normal hotel room set up, we had the bunk bed. The hotel is next to The Fields Mall and the Metro Station. It's more of a family room set up, My daughter slept on the top of the bunk bed and I slept on the lowest bed and my husband took the middle bed.We had a good signal on WIFI.Shower and Toilet are one.
Love the experience and the hotel. Highly recommended.

Cabinn Metro is a budget hotel, the cheapest in Copenhagen Airport area (€ 85 by the way), with nice personnel and clean rooms. Wifi works well.
However, it's too much for someone who travels all day, someone who is tired and needs a minimum comfort: Cabinn is BASIC at it's meant for sleeping only.

Came to Copenhagen for a three day visit and loved it. Wanted to stay near downtown but prices there were just very high or hotels were booked up. Luckily we found this nice economy hotel near the metro in the suburbs.

Good:
- Great value including breakfast and internet
- location near a shopping center and within 5 minutes to the metro
- great running trails around the hotel
- very friendly and helpful staff (might be that just all Danes are friendly and helpful - not sure)

Bad:
- expensive parking
- lack of fitness facility

their baseline is 'all you need to sleep', but the hotel is designed more like 'all you need is to sleep'. Which is good if you're out all day and only in the hotel to freshen up and to sleep. This was ok as I was alone in a 2-person room, but I guess you have to love each other very much to spend 4 nights together in this room. breakfast is basic but ok. promoted is a budget hotel but still too expensive for what you get. very little fresh air in the room, must be hell in warm summer. WIFI is the best I ever had, fast and everywhere around. Connection by metro to city centre is perfect, 10 min walk, 10 min metro.

Room Tip: rooms at the front are behind a glass wall with limited fresh air

Basic hotel near Copenhagen airport. Easy to reach with the local train. Next to Fields shopping center. Easy to reach town by train or Metro.
Small basic rooms, but clean and nice. Quite like on a ship or in overnight train.
Breakfast was basic, fresh and OK, with no hot food.

Stayed here whilst attending a conference at Bella Center. Knew it was going to be small (cabinn refers to rooms the size of a ship's sleeping quarters), but it was fine. North Americans are used to big rooms, so it is always hard to adjust to Europe hotels. Honestly, it's a great deal for those looking for budget travel, and don't plan to spend all of their time in the hotel.

It was quiet, comfortable sleep. The breakfast was excellent. There is a large mall next door with grocery, and a 10 minute walk to both the Metro and Conference Centre. The neighbourhood gets quiet early at night (as in Kobenhavn), but there is a bar in the lobby. I'd stay again if I was in town for business. Probably would look elsewhere with little kids, though a limited number of larger rooms are available.
