13 places to sleep in Copenhagen

The most luxurious, coziest and best hotels gathered in one place.

Words Nick Rice


A one room hotel above a tiny café — so much more than just a gimmick, so be sure to book ahead. Sandwiched between the famous Gl. Kongevej and Værnedamsvej streets on the charming Tullinsgade, the world’s smallest hotel is a magical novelty that has been carefully conceived and expertly executed. – Tullinsgade 1



Owner Alexander Kølpin, a former dancer with the Royal Danish Ballet, worked with London-based design studio Lind + Almond to create 54 rooms, which are setting a new standard for the city’s impressive boutique hotel offering. Located across from the Royal Danish Theatre and housed in a five-floor historical building, the property has been described as coziness defined, receiving overwhelming reviews by a whole bunch of the world’s leading travel and lifestyle media.



A glorious hotel conversion of the landmark Royal Danish Conservatory of Music. Nobis has succeeded in transforming a 5,400-square-metre neo-classical building into a modern hotel that is as comfortable as it is contemporary. A sense of rich heritage has been masterfully preserved whilst at the same time guests enjoy state of the art technology and amenities. The location couldn’t be better as it sits on the edge of the Cultural District with attractions like the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek art museum next door and Tivoli Gardens two minutes away on foot. The Swedish architectural firm Wingårdhs has triumphed in the merging of interior period features with high-spec Scandinavian design. – Niels Brocks Gade 1



Laid back and artsy boutique hangout in the Latin Quarter. SP34 is perched between a batch of bike shops, cool cafés and decent restaurants. H.C. Ørsteds Parken is also directly opposite for lazy picnics in the park. The interior is peppered with modern and mid-century Danish furnishings and weighty art tomes abound on the ceiling-high shelves. – Sankt Peders Stræde 34



A unique destination hotel with lavish suites overlooking the Tivoli Gardens. Each of the 38 rooms and suites at Nimb pack undeniable wow factor. Cavernous spaces carefully filled with the finest selection of luxury branded amenities. Fine antiques and curated art works join B&O televisions and sound systems for a blend of refined comfort and luxury. – Bernstorffsgade 5



Uniquely memorable — an industrial coal crane is re-imagined into a two-person retreat. The Krane comprises a glasswalled meeting room, a spa, two terraces overlooking the harbour and hotel living space. The 50-metre-square lounge and bedroom area is minimal and black in reference to industrial history. Lead architect Mads Møller describes it as ”an immersive, multi-sensory experience.” – 2150 Copenhagen



An icon in Denmark and its capital, this 18th Century hotel is one of the finest in Northern Europe. The five-star Hotel d’Angleterre has racked up more than 250 years welcoming guests into the unabashed lap of luxury. The recent refurbishment has added fresh sparkle to an old gem. – Kongens Nytorv 34
