There's no denying you're away from the action out here in Frederiksberg. It's a ten- or fifteen-minute walk into the centre from here. Hiring a bike makes a lot of sense if you're staying here and if you don't fancy that, making use of Copenhagen's excellent transport network means you won't feel marooned. The area is actually very pleasant: quiet with plenty of period buildings. It's also close to the handsome lakes that edge the city centre - ideal running or strolling areas.
The CabInn format is the same here as elsewhere - it's no frills, the beds are narrow and the beds small and cabin like (hence the name). The bathrooms are also modest small. It's all rather cheerless but it is cheap, which is the point. The rooms are well equipped though with WiFi, TV, and tea and coffee making equipement. The larger Admiral and Captain rooms feel less confined and the beds are slightly larger (modest doubles rather than singles).
The lobby and breakfast room are clean, minimalist and unremarkable, although there is plenty of natural light in this modern building.
Eating and drinking
There's not much on offer here apart from the cafe. Breakfast is pretty rudimentary so you're probably better off grabbing something at a local bakery or cafe.
There are not many hotel leisure facilitites to speak of, apart from free WiFi and a TV in the lobby.
Everything runs efficiently at the Cab Inn but you do feel you are being processed. This, after all, is a budget place and there's not much scope or call for personal service.
