Copenhagen – Cabinn Scandinavia

And so we continue with my Scandinavia Adventure!

This time, I shall share with you my day trip in Copenhagen, Denmark (which I will divide into separate posts).

Warning though, since my trip happened half a year ago, there’s a huge chance that I might not be able to remember specific details anymore. hehe

From Malmo’s Hyllie Station, I took a train back to Kastrup Airport then another metro ride to Forum Station where my hotel was located.

With the help of a nice Pinay lady who I met outside the station, I easily found my way to Cabinn Scandinavia where I would be staying for the next 2 nights.

Cabinn Scandinavia

I found Cabinn Scandinavia thru booking.com for around AED450 per night. The reviews and photos seemed reasonable so I went ahead and made a reservation. Besides, I just wanted a place to sleep and keep my things safe.

Well, except for affordability & good location, I won’t really recommend this hotel to anyone. The bathroom looked clean but emitted a weird smell, the bed linens didn’t feel sanitary at all (good thing I brought my own blanket & towel with me), the coffee pot in the room was rusty & just looked gross, buffet breakfast was almost nonexistent, & overall it just didn’t feel comfortable.

See, I am the most fuss-free person you’ll ever meet but I just felt really disappointed with my stay that I had to write an honest to goodness review about it at booking.com (to warn other travelers).

Honestly, I don’t mind a tiny room as long as it’s clean

On a positive note, I have to commend the hotel’s location. Aside from its proximity to the metro, the neighborhood around it felt very safe and peaceful.

This building reminds me of a cruise ship. hehe

There was also a park and church just few meters away.

Nice huh?

Well, if there’s anything I got out of this experience, it taught me the valuable lesson of not sacrificing comfort over low price.
