Hotel SP34

What’s the hotel in a nutshell?

The epitome of a good neighbourhood hotel, Hotel SP34 is one we keep returning to again and again. Its location on historic Sankt Peders Stræde, which the hotel is also named after, puts it at the heart of Copenhagen’s bohemian Latin Quarter. The juxtaposition of rough industrial concrete floors and walls and delicate mid-century Danish furniture by Carl Hansen & Son make for a bolthole that is both edgy and cosy – and thoroughly Danish.

What are the rooms like?

From the cosy Small Single to the handsome Loft Suite, all of Hotel Sp34s 118 rooms are sparsely yet thoughtfully decorated. The soft ambient lighting makes you want to settle in, and a custom-designed headboard makes it possible to work from bed. All rooms feature the SP34 Chair, with a dark wooden frame and a leather seat, produced exclusively for the hotel by Danish heritage furniture brand Carl Hansen & Son.

What else?

Hotel SP34 has three restaurants on-site. Vækst, designed as a greenhouse, specialises in, you guessed it, plant-based foods with a Nordic touch, while the curiously named Cocks & Cows serves some of Copenhagen’s finest burgers and cocktails. Din Nye Ven, Danish for ‘your new friend’, is a cosy watering hole for a drink and a casual bite. In summer, the hotel’s courtyard terrace is a great spot to soak up the sun, and make sure to stick around for wine hour (between 17.00 and 18.00) and nightcap hour (between 22.00 and 23.00) in the lobby bar, where drinks are on the house.

What’s the neighbourhood like?

Copenhagen’s Indre By is the area bounded by the lakes circling the inner city and the harbour. This historic centre reflects the entire city’s extent during the reign of King Christian IV (1577-1648), when the town was fortified. It is home to most of Copenhagen’s museums and attractions. Strøget, the city’s famed pedestrian shopping street, runs right through it. If you’re new to the city, we recommend you start here, right at the heart of the bustling city, working your way outward to other neighbouring areas as you explore.
