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.

Expensive, but worth it

Extremely comfortable room in Scandi style furnishings. Located on a quiet street, but a short walk to all the central parts of Copenhagen - its restaurants and shopping district. Staff extremely welcoming. Bar is quiet.

Great hotel in CPH

We really enjoyed our stay in Hotel Sanders during our visit to CPH. It's got a super cool design and vibe. The restaurant was good for breakfast and decent for dinner. The staff was all very friendly.

We reserved two Sanders Bedrooms because their website says all of those rooms come with king sized beds. Upon checking in one of our rooms did not have a king sized bed. We asked to switch and it took a bit of convincing to get them to do it but in the end they did. I say this because all of the Sanders Bedrooms vary in quality so your experience will be dependent on which one they give you. I suggest room 404.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again on a return trip to CPH.

A cool haven in the center of Copenhagen!

No doubt the best option in Copenhagen. Ideal for those seeking a serene retreat in the center of the city. Excellent service and impeccable decor. Rooms well availed and bathroom small however super comfy! The highlight is the service and the options at any of the hotel restaurants. The frequency waits for comments...

A great hotel!

We loved this hotel. It truly is like staying in someones home. The service, food, atmosphere, and staff were all amazing. Our room was quiet and cosy. The location can not be beat. The staff arranged a private car service from the airport to the hotel as well as from the hotel to our cruise ship without any delays or issues. Breakfast was vey good and our server on our first morning was right, they are the best croissants in town.

The only negative people might have with the room is that the lighting in the bathroom was a bit dim, but this is sooooo minor compared to the other amazing things about this hotel.

Thank you for an amazing stay!!

Nothing is too much trouble for the delightful staff at the hotel Sanders - need a bicycle? An elegant Pelago with comfortable worn Brooks saddle waits for you outside. A great night’s sleep in soft beds, crisp sheets and elegant marble bathrooms.
The Sanders is in the most perfect location - so central that nothing is more that a 5 minute walk away, yet tucked into a quiet almost pedestrianised side street, so the best and quietest night sleep I’ve had in ages.

Breakfast of fresh fruit and croissants in the sunny plant filled rooftop restaurant.

I was on my own, but the single room was generous with desk and working spot and full size bathroom and delicious Ortiga products

Best hotel in Copenhagen by a mile
