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.
How to Get There
Brown’s hotel, London - but in Copenhagen. International style, standard and atmosphere. Excellent and cosy areas with sofas - a key element for us to enjoy a hotel. Small, but exquisite room in its level. The well communicated roof top bar was not fantastic... but still a roof-top. Sanders is well positioned close to everything indeed - but hidden. Staff was very friendly and extremely supportive and did manage all “tests” in an excellent spirit. Breakfast might have been one of the negative components. Familiar, cosy, high quality - but not the real top offer which we enjoy. Might be seen as something where personal taste differ... Sanders is for private visits in Copenhagen - maybe not for business. We believe you need the time to enjoy the spirit - not just high quality and effective. We have a new private favourite in Copenhagen!
What a perfect boutique hotel. Superb location, lovely and quiet rooms, beautiful decor, delicious food, lively bar and outstanding staff. I wish it were possible to give more than 5 stars. We will definitely be back when we next return to Copenhagen.
Upon recommendation from my travel agent I was booked here and the stay exceeded my expectations. I stayed in Stockholm at the" best" Brand hotel and overall could not compare to the service and offerings at the " boutique" Hotel Sanders. The theme there is " welcome to our home" and indeed that is the atmosphere. You will enjoy the organic prepared foods which is of excellent quality and served efficiently. Get the organic blueberry muffin for breakfast, the best ever as you can see the difference from a processed type.
