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
The hotel and its rooms are very inviting. Minimalist, contemporary but cozy. Our room was small but definitely large enough for two, especially since we weren't spending much time in it. Definitely have to live out of a suitcase though. The people were, fo the most part, helpful, friendly and welcoming. Two cons. We were told at check-in that our breakfast was free, which surprised u but okay, but when we sat down to breakfast our waiter told us it was $20 each—a bit much for the couple slices of cheese and slice of bread each of us was having—and not included. After discussion with the front desk, they stuck to the charge so we just skipped it. Kind of embarrassing. Not looking for a free breakfast but at that point they should have said enjoy the cheese and bread but know that the front desk was mistaken at check-in. Second, noise. The location was noisy every morning whether with deliveries, construction or what not. And for three straight nights there were EXTREMELY loud revels playing thunderous music until after 3am and the hotel did nothing to curb it.
Had a good stay here. Room was small, but very functional and met our needs. The daily breakfast buffet is excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The facilities are excellent if you need anything eg gym,bikes,and even has a cinema room! The burger place attached to the hotel is great if you get the right service staff!
This hotel made our stay in CPH- the location is perfect and near cute streets and cafes, the place is relaxing and welcoming and the room was lovely. As one of the more reasonably priced hotels in CPH, we loved it and enjoyed it more than where we stayed for the remainder of our trip. Breakfast was fantastic and the breakfast staff were absolutely lovely!
Great location, very professional and efficient team (even for specific need just like booking a dentist! ) and an amazing breakfast buffet with a wide range of organic products. I appreciated the different seeds and the nice water with fresh mint infused ! I recommend !
- A beautifully modern designed hotel
- It couldn't be in a better location - very central - on a charming pretty street - in easy walking distance to everything.
- Attractive and comfortable rooms. Nice side tables and designer lamps.
- Well designed bathroom with a great shower.
- Good hairdryer.
- Helpful staff.
- Delicious breakfast in a very attractive space downstairs with a distressed finish and lots of green plants. The croissants were deliciously flaky and a great range of deliciously inviting things to eat for breakfast - healthy as well as naughty.
- Great hotel bikes to hire - stylish and comfy.
- It would be great if there were two plugs by the bed. I had to decide if I wanted my side light on or to charge my phone as there was only one plug on my side of the bed.
- Would have been nice to have a conditioner (apparently the shampoo was a shampoo and conditioner but it wasn't great).
