This hypercool sleep has brought an extra dose of forward-thinking Danish style to one of Copenhagen’s buzziest neighborhoods, the old Latin Quarter. Set on a picturesque leafy, narrow street — Sankt Peders Stræde, named for St. Peter’s Church on the corner — this 118-room gem, marked by a neon-yellow sign, epitomizes the streamlined style for which Denmark is famous. The airy, light-flooded lobby is a study in blond wood, low-slung leather furniture, retro-fabulous light fixtures and contemporary art, including a wall mural that includes such whimsical phrases as “This moment should last forever” and “Now I know what I should have said.” (There’s even that most Danish of objects on display: a state-of-the-art bicycle.) The reception area doubles as a bar, so you can sip a heart-starting espresso or aperitif as you check in. The guestrooms are all about exquisite minimalism: stone-gray walls, blond wood and leather headboards, and sleek bathrooms, and some offer gorgeous views of the historic slate tile–roofed buildings in the neighborhood. While you’ll no doubt be yearning to venture out for a taste of Copenhagen’s famous Michelin star–heavy dining scene, there are plenty of wining and dining options right at home, including the convivial tapas restaurant Work in Progress (WIP), the Danish diner-style burger joint Cocks and Cows, and Din Nye Van, a bar/coffee house that does double duty as a meeting place for local poets, artists and musicians.
In the Area
You could while away many happy hours just on Sankt Peders Stræde; this narrow street contains some of the best things Copenhagen has to offer. Start by grabbing a delicious pastry at the famous Sankt Peders Bageri, known for its melt-in-your-mouth cinnamon rolls, then stroll the leafy oasis that is H.C. Ørsted Park, English-style gardens built in 1876 that were once part of Copenhagen’s moats. Check out the fascinating interior of one of the city’s most famous bike shops, Sögreni, which makes stellar custom wheels for its finicky fan base; the store also sells beautifully designed bike accessories, such as copper and steel bells, that make great souvenirs. Forgot to book ahead for Noma? Dine instead at a tiny, convivial joint just steps from the hotel called Bror, which was started by two Noma alums and serves a four-course menu each evening using the best nordic ingredients around. For more gourmet gratification, duck into Torvehallerne, a gleaming gourmet food hall near the central train station where you can browse everything from smørresbrød (the famed Danish open sandwich) to hand-crafted chocolates to smoked fish.
How to Get There
Hotel is very overpriced and rooms are not well cleaned. When I first booked via phone they said there was only one room left and it was a suite with a balcony with views. When I checked in they tried to give me a lower level room without a balcony or any views. Found out later they also had many rooms for much less $ available and never told me.
When I called them out on this $5,500 per week room they apologized and gave me a credit “after” they were caught. If I did not catch “their mistake” they would have never said anything about it. Floors were not cleaned the entire week.
No one alerted me upon check in that I was entitled to an upgraded breakfast and free drinks all week. Lost out on that one. Also renting bikes for $100 a day for bikes worth $125 is a rip-off for this $5,500 per week “suite”. Suite is not much bigger than a standard hotel room.
No valet service. Had to carry all my bags as well upon arrival and departure. A hostel would have been a better choice.
Pros: location, restaurants, free wine at 5, roof top deck and nice rooms
Cons: it is never hot in Denmark but rooms are hot because there is no fan so you have to open the windows and drunk people in the courtyard sit there and smoke all night yelling. Beds are hard as a rock.
Would I stay there again? Location is so great maybe but the heat and noise were a pain so probably not.
We stayed at SP34 for a week in June and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel's location is great. You can easily walk to all the main tourist sites, the train station, and to restaurants in Vesterbro. The only place you can't walk is to the airport but you can easily get on the metro to the airport at Norreport station (<10 mins). Our room wasn't huge, but it was no different from a typical European hotel and was enough space for two people. Beds were comfortable and the TV had several English options. Our room had a closet, a few small shelves, tea / coffee kettle, and a safe. Our room faced Skt Peders street and was pretty quiet. We didn't hear any internal hotel noise and only once heard any street noise at night. The window had blackout curtains. The hotel does not have AC but this was not a problem for us in June. Wine hour was great - they offer free house white, red, and port wine from 5pm-6pm every day. It was not at all an issue that the check-in desk was also a bar. We always had good, prompt service from the staff. We had breakfast included in our rate which was well worth it. Good variety of quality options: cheeses, cold cuts, cereal, yogurts, pastries, hard boiled eggs, fruit, coffee / tea, and fresh juice. You could pay additional for hot items like eggs and pancakes but the regular buffet was enough for us. The only cons were that it was impossible to take a shower without soaking the entire bathroom. The bathroom fixtures were nice - the shower barrier just wasn't large enough. Some aspects of the room also felt a bit worn - the table had some wine stains on it and the walls had some scuff marks. These were small cons though and didn't detract from our overall experience. I would be happy to return to SP34.
We live In Copenhagen so we didn’t stay at the hotel, but came for the good brunch and the great atmosphere.
There’s plants everywhere and the waitress was very friendly. It was very busy at 10 o’clock, but we were in no rush.
Next time I’m going out for a drink, I will try the rooftop bar.
So we didn’t choose this hotel; rather, the hotel we booked was under remodel and we were relocated! THANK GOODNESS.
Good location 10-15 minute walk from the central train station in the Latin District. Best breakfast after 3 weeks in Europe. Clean. Staff super pleasant. They even have a managers reception daily (we were never there for it).
Only down side lots of street noise at night - it was warm and we had to keep windows open.
