For my weekend getaway to Copenhagen, all I needed was a cool hotel, full of amazing danish design details and #hygge vibes!
I found it all at Hotel Danmark.
(*Hygge is the danish word that has become a trend since last year and refers to people’s stylish, cozy, good life!)
Well, Ηotel Danmark is indeed the epitome of hygge. From its trademark leather headboards to the velvety dark hues on the walls; from the lounge with the fireplace and the superb lighting to the Instagram – worthy rooftop with the wooden kiosks and the stunning views to the roofs of the city, everything in this hotel clearly aims at introducing the guests to this famous Danish art of happiness.
It is the boutique hotel chain Brøchner Hotels that stands behind the new Hotel Danmark. The team of Brochner Group (with four more hotels in the city) has taken an existing hotel building and reinvented it into this upscale luxury hotel in May 2017.
Hotel Danmark actually comprises of two buildings – one of them is from 1792 and retains its original facade and the other building is from 1969 and has a completely new façade with 4200 racing green tiles.
On entering the lobby which is more reminiscent of a bar, you realise that this hotel will be a lasting point of reference in your friendly chats.
‘Hygge’ also has to do with sharing moments with friends and Hotel Danmark has a philosophy that encourages social life. The small reception lobby turns into a cozy wine bar during the coplimentary wine hour that occurs daily from 5 to 6 and gives a chance to guests and locals to communicate with each other.
The rooftop has the wow factor. It is a sky-high urban oasis with a sweeping 360-degrees view of Copenhagen and beyond. With lounge furniture, green plants and cool wine and beer in the bar, you can enjoy yourself with the whole city at your feet!
My room was a superior double room on the 4th floor with the cutest balcony overlooking the historic centre of the city and the town hall clock. I have to say here that if you travel with company, then you definitely should choose a superior double since standard double rooms are masterfully arranged and functional, still quite minuscule. They all look amazing, though, decorated in a luxurious Nordic cool n’ calm style.
The design details that catch the eye are all around you and mostly consist of custom made pieces for the hotel or belong to the home collection of the Group of Brochner Hotels. Υοu can actually buy the amazing cutlery, the woolen throws or the cups that you have in your room and bring some of the Hotel Danmark touches back home with you.
People are friendly and warm, the service is welcoming, while an organic breakfast is served at the independently run Tivolihallen restaurant that resembles a traditional Danish house.
The location of Hotel Danmark is perfect for the one who wants to explore Copenhagen the way I did. It is ideally placed in the old museum quarter between the City Hall Square and The National Museum.
I would certainly recommend it to anyone who seeks an authentic experience of Scandinavian life, in a cool vibrant area next to the historic part and the busiest shopping streets of the city.
