We recommend Hotel de 9 Små Hjem, which is pleasant and inexpensive and offers room with a kitchen. Other inexpensive alternatives are CabInn that 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.

Somewhat more expensive - and still recommended - options are Hotel Nora and Ibsen's Hotel. Invited speakers need not reserve hotel rooms (this will be taken care of by the organizers). 

Organizers: Alexander Berglund and Nathalie Wahl
