With 15 Michelin starred restaurants, candy-coloured urban cottages in the impossibly picturesque quarter of Nyhalm, the statue of Hans Christian Andersen’s Little Mermaid in the harbour, and world-class museums such as the Nationalmuseet and the Designmuseum Danmark, Copenhagen has the last word in Nordic chic. The city’s an expensive one, but in Denmark, you really do get what you pay for. While in town, make sure you stay in an appropriately design-conscious boutique hotel: they’re something the Danish capital does extraordinarily well.
Modern Scandinavian design meets old-world luxury in The 4* Scandic Palace Hotel. Think huge windows allowing buckets of natural light to pour in, fresh white flowers, a sunny roof terrace, and amazing views of the city. Its location can’t be beaten, either: situated right in City Hall Square, the hotel is just moments from the main shopping street of Strøget, and the carnivalesque delights of the Tivoli Gardens.
If a boutique hotel just wouldn’t be worth the stay without an onsite spa and cocktail bar, then Hotel Skt Petri might be the one for you. Complete with an industrial-chic restaurant, private terraces and balconies, Jensen beds and luxury parquet flooring, the hotel is situated in Copenhagen’s old Latin Quarter, just a few minutes from City Hall Square and Strøget.
For really laid back Danish minimalism, Hotel SP34 fits the bill nicely. Complete with rooftop terrace, soothing white walls and a smooth, modern aesthetic throughout, this hotel just wouldn’t be found anywhere other than Scandinavia. With free wifi throughout and an hour of free wine from 17-18.00 daily, Hotel SP34 really knows how to take care of life’s essentials for its guests! With onsite bicycle rental and a small cinema which can be booked for private screenings, you’ll have a fat slice of modern Danish luxury during your stay here.
