Hotel CABINN Scandinavia
Ranked #4 of 6 Hotels in Frederiksberg
Reviewed September 20, 2012

The whole hotel is stinking. For this money! Just disgusting smell of socks everywhere. Show some respect and provide tourists with standards that can be considered... decent at least.
Matresses are dirty!!!
The bathroom is something special!!! Very small. The shower is not separated - it is just a whole in the bath floor!!! You could try and make a toilet in the same manner - go on!!!! The bedroom could be very simple but the bathroom must be equipped fully so that you can take a shower. I insist that in the Cabinn it is impossible. The hotel doesn't have a shower I could take.
Change the carpets and matressess and make up a normal shower!

It is not the hotel, it is a stinky hostel for hippy teenagers!

The only good thing is that the hotel is quite close to the centre.

Room Tip: Better upper floors

I have just spent 4 days at the Cabinn Scandinavia in Copenhagen. If you are used to normal 3/4 star hotels aviod. The bed rooms are very small aprox 20ft x10ft including a bath room approx 4ft sq. My room had 3 beds 1 being a bunk bed. The room to me is only suitable for 1 person.The hotel & rooms are very clean, staff & service good.
The breakfasts are not normal hotel ones but continental & not very much selection. The hotel is a budget hotel & slightly away from the centre of the city so is not noisy with traffic.
Denmark is VERY EXPENCIVE, the breakfasts in the hotel is 70 Krona equal to about £7.5.
There is no other meal service but plenty of restaurants about 30min walk away in the city centre.
There is good transport arangments from the airport to the city. Four days is just about right to see the city & SAS flights GOOD, clean planes & flights on time.

Room Tip: Do a complete check on what is available. I booked via Octupus Travel????

Stepping into the little Cupboard size room, it was an experience of a lifetime. You are immediately drawn to the essence of life, and teleported to a third-world ambience. From the IKEAs and the LEGOs one must get the clue, one must have got the sense that scandinavians perfected the art of scrimping on space at the expense of any and all comforts of life. But the tagline for CABINN says 'all you need to sleep' - perhaps that's all there's to it. If I have a choice, I'd never go back here again, but never say never!

There were 3 of us altogether in a very basic, tiny room. We found this to be one of the cheapest options with the highest reviews, as we were staying for 5 nights. I would definitely recommend for anyone traveling on a budget. We were within walking distance to trains and city attractions, along with several very good restaurants. The staff was incredibly kind, although not super knowledgeable when it comes to directions.

I would give the Cabinn 5 stars however, we were not able to get the room cleaned because there was not a safe located in our room. If a safe was provided in each room I would definitely give this place 5 stars.

This hotel is situated near the center. Ten minutes from Tivoli. There is a fantastic zoo at walkable distance. It has it's own parking space. Breakfast is excellent with a wide variety of products to choose from. The rooms are very smal but clean. Wifi only available in the public lounge. Very basic.

The place is in a nice quiet residential area a little away from the city center. The room was small but really one would not expect anything more at the price. We were three people in a room and no body complained about the size. Everything we needed was provided in the room. The bathroom was tiny but clean. For ladies, do not forget to carry your shower caps. The towels were clean, internet very good and tea/ coffee maker was also provided. But the best part of the hotel are its staff. Very helpful staff who always receive you with a smile, be it 5 in the morning or 10 at night. We arrived early morning and were allowed to check in 8 hours before check-in time. Also the luggage room was available without charge. The staff also helped us with the transport. All in all a nice place, small but value for money.
