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.

Spent a night in this amazing hotel , the kind of place I’d stay for days ! The deco is lovely, bathrooms are beautiful with tiles and yet the shower is very modern . Everything has an eco or bio touch too.
The lounge for afternoon tea is just so popular you almost have to reserve . The different breakfasts are just wow , best homemade sourdough bread ever ! They even propose Shakshouka and a variety of different breakfasts , no buffet.
The bar is also very nice , full , nice light ,staff is just perfect , the price of the room is expensive for just one person (388.- Swiss francs ) , considering no spa aso , it is expensive for a four star hotel but still perfect !

Great choice

Hotel Sanders feels like a speakeasy hotel. It feels like home and the feeling of hygge is certain. All people working in the hotel are wonderful, the location is idyllic, the rooms comfortable, super clean and neatly designed to offer everyday comfort and cozy nights.
The restaurant, the living rooms and the bar are exceptional choices even for the locals.

Perfect Stay

I cannot say enough good things about Hotel Sanders! We stayed 4 nights for our Babymoon and it was perfect. The staff was extremely nice and accommodating with any request. The room (Sanders Bedroom) was so cozy. Breakfast each morning in the rooftop terrace was delicious and filling. The lobby and hotel bar was very inviting with a fireplace. Sometimes it was hard to leave the hotel. We ended up cancelling our dinner reservation the last night just so we could stay at the hotel and soak it up. The hotel defines Hygge! We can’t wait to come back to Copenhagen and we will definitely be staying at Hotel Sanders.
