Copenhagen’s new luxury hotels

Four new luxury hotels opened their doors in Copenhagen in 2017. Common to them all is a historical context that is beautifully woven into the hotel experience. Come and take a look inside with us.

The 5-star Nobis Hotel opened in September in a classical mansion dating from 1903, which used to be home to the Royal Danish Academy of Music. The heritage building has many elegant old features that contrast beautifully with the hotel’s modern interior, designed by renowned Swedish architect Gert Wingårdh. Chef Jeppe Foldager, Bocuse d’Or silver medalist, impresses in the gourmet Restaurant Niels, while the hotel’s spa and fitness area in raw Italian marble are uncommonly elegant. A top-class hotel with a super-central location between Islands Brygge, Tivoli and the Glyptotek.

Hotel Sanders

Several years ago, Alexander Kølpin, former principal dancer with the Royal Danish Ballet, swapped the stage for the hotel industry, taking over a couple of little gems in Tisvildeleje Badehotel and Helenekilde. The latest addition is the Sanders boutique hotel, located behind the Royal Danish Theater, where Kølpin grew into his ballet shoes. The hotel is decorated in a warm, modern, Bohemian style with subtle theatrical references, such as the hotel bar, TATA, which is named after the stage curtain. The aim is to create a luxurious and homely place with exceptional personal service. The hotel has personal trainers who are happy to come to you, for example, or you can enjoy a backstage tour at The Royal Danish Ballet.

The Krane

It may well sound like an ambitious undertaking to transform an old coal crane into a luxury retreat. But Copenhagen’s unusual two-person hotel, The Krane, proves that nothing is impossible. From the outside it has all the appearances of a working crane, but inside all the industrial remnants have been stripped away and replaced with a luxurious spa and minimalist, modern designer furnishings. The Krane is located in Nordhavn and is designed for those who appreciate quality time for themselves with views of the sea and sky. There’s a BMW at your disposal throughout your stay.
