Overview

Style-centric laid-back boutique with a residential feel—a magnet for the city's cultural elite

The Lowdown

Created by Alexander Kolpin, once a royal ballet dancer, this boutique is welcoming and superbly elegant without being stuffy—if you had a friend with unlimited money and excellent taste, this is the space they’d create. Right in the middle of Copenhagen’s cultural district, the hotel’s bars and courtyards have become gathering places for the city’s artsy crowd, which contributes to the residential feel. The interiors play with texture in fun ways—rattan sofas, polished woods, sumptuous velvets, shining brass—and rooms are hung with work by local artists. Public spaces invite you to take your time, relax and socialize: the cozy TATA is a transplanted theater bar, the courtyard is fresh and welcoming for dining in warmer months, and the rooftop conservatory encourages lounging with a good book.

In the Area

Like music? Theater? Ballet? Art? Sanders is perfectly positioned for culture vultures, with the Royal Danish Theater, the Opera House, and ground-breaking contemporary art galleries like Kunsthal Charlottenborg and Last Resort all in the neighborhood and easily accessible on foot or one on of the free hotel bikes. Amalienborg, home to the Danish royal family, is a ten-minute walk north – time your visit for noon to see the daily changing of the guard. Cocktail lovers must spend at least one night at Ruby, where bartenders concoct bold new drinks with ingredients like bitter walnut liqueur, East India sherry, and house-made spiced mandarin cordial. A bit further afield in Christianshavn is Amass, a destination restaurant from the same people behind Noma—book in advance; it’s worth it. Staff at the hotel are full of helpful, insider-y recommendations, too, so check with them when you arrive and let them help plan your itinerary.

Absolute Gem

Lovely, comfortable rooms, stunning decor with a beautiful, cozy main floor to have a breakfast or tea by the fireplace. We checked in and were greeted so warmly by the front desk staff and were upgraded to a larger room that was quiet and comfortable on the 2nd floor. The location is perfect for shopping and wandering around this beautiful city. Cannot wait to return and enjoy this absolute gem. The food was delicious but the staff are truly the best thing about the hotel. Absolutely everyone was helpful, genuinely friendly and charming. No attitude from anyone and that is the mark of a truly exceptional hotel.

We stayed as a family with two kids (5 years, 2 years) for a long weekend in this beautiful hotel and enjoyed it very much. The hotel is quite in the centre (walking distance to Nyhavn & Ostergade) but the street is very quite. The room was very nicely furnished and decorated with a mixture of old classic and modern. The bathroom is a must see! The room but as well the whole hotel has a very cosy touch, lots of warm colors, dimmed lights and organic materials. We had a nice little breakfast buffet in the restaurant with an additional choice to order from the card. There is a covered outdoor garden area, a trendy bar and a rooftop bar, where you can enjoy as well your breakfast or afternoon tea. Furthermore we enjoyed a perfect and kind service. A big thank you to the Sanders team!

Bar review - bar is awesome - decor is beautiful - takes you back in time

Been here before and this time we came with some friends before going out for dinner. The hotel is really nice and the decor feels like ine the 20-ies/30-ies. Came saturday evening around 19h:30 and the bar was full of people so sadly we went to the roof top first. But they don't serve coctails there so we went downstairs and a table was free. Sat down . got great and quick service and after ordering our great coctails we goit a pre-coctail as well.

This is a really nice spot for some drinks - alone or with friends daytime or evening. Will for sure be back here too often :)

Review of restaurant and bar - a bit mixed impression.

We came as a couple for the Sunday evening dinner which is offered as buffet type deal. The food was excellent, and although we came late (its announced that you should try to show up a bit before 6 pm), and the dinner was overbooked, the staff was kind enough to find a spot for us. I found the servants quite attentive.

Prior to our dinner we had a few drinks in TATA bar. The bar has received great reviews and the quality of the drinks and interior are probably on par with the best 3-4 bars in Copenhagen. However; here is the problem: the two bartenders were completely disconnected to us as guest, no communication, no smiles - and this in rather empty bar on Sunday night, where we were the only two guests at the actual bar desk. Although they seemed competent and made great cocktails they really were not fit for this kind of job, or at least they should be teamed up with someone who are able to socialize. The experience was in stark contrast with other high-end bars in Copenhagen including Ruby.
