In Central Copenhagen

Hotel Skt PetriSKT. PETRI

  • The Hotel Skt Petri has been converted from a Latin Quarter department store into a bright and airy 268 room hotel. The interiors are by well known Danish artist Per Arnoldi and there’s a fittingly modern restaurant with an excellent range of microbrewery beers.
  • SP34 is a characterful boutique hotel in the Latin Quarter with 118 stylish rooms and suites and an amazing penthouse. There are two restaurants and four bars, plus a beautiful roof terrace. And you’re just 500metres from the Tivoli Gardens.

For an asian vibe

Guldsmeden Axel

  • Located in the hip Versterbro district, and close to the waterfront, the Guldsmeden Axel is a stylish spa hotel with 129 rooms and suites and a luxurious spa. The decor is a bit Balinese with white walls, teak four-poster beds, Persian rugs and private balconies.

For a Special Occasion


  • For something a bit more Danish, try d’Angleterre a stunning five star hotel converted from a palace, and complete with silk furnishings, marble bathrooms, chandeliers, and a Michelin starred restaurant and opulent champagne bar. There’s also a full spa, pool and gym.
  • Copenhagen is known for its design, and the Nimb Hotel is high design, just not necessarily in the Danish style. It’s been converted from an early 20th century Moorish-inspired palace within the magical grounds of the Tivoli Gardens, and has a fairytale appeal and some lovely antiques. There are just 17 sumptuous bedrooms but a choice of drinking and dining options.
