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.

Small but perfectly formed

Such a warm and friendly atmosphere, all staff were so helpful and went out of their way to make it a pleasurable stay. The little things count, such as hand-written welcome note, complimentary soft drinks and snacks, wine o’clock, turn down service and mint water!

I stayed for business but would definitely be a place to take my wife next time in Copenhagen.

Just perfect for week-end stay!

Location was perfect and hotel more than met our expectations. The rooms were very comfortable and the elegant touches such as the luxury toiletries, box of handmade chocolates, free and constantly replenished mini bar (non alcoholic) and the pitcher of mint infused water made it "extra comfortable". What really made this Hotel special however were the staff, particularly at the "front of house". In fact, we loved the atmosphere, staff and food so much that on our second and last night we ate in the Hotel and again it fulfilled every expectation. Would definitely recommend and will also definitely return!

I’m afraid that I was not impressed with the service from the lobby staff or the restaurant staff! They didn’t seem to be paying attention. They acted very aloof and we seemed to wait for a long time to be offered drinks etc. My husband was not offered to try his red wine it was just poured and given to him.
On a good note the food was very tasty and excellent. Possibly unlucky on the night!
