Hotel Alexandra​

Are you a lover of all things mid-century and Danish design? Look no further, because Hotel Alexandra in Copenhagen is your design-lover’s paradise. This boutique hotel is like stepping into a time machine, transporting you to the golden age of Danish design with its impressive collection of vintage furniture and decor. Sip on a complimentary glass of wine while lounging on original Finn Juhl pieces and lose yourself in the rich sounds of vinyl records. And if you fall in love with the aesthetic (which, let’s be real, you probably will), you can take a piece of the hotel home with you from the ever-changing collectors’ room. So book your stay at Hotel Alexandra and get ready to have your design-loving heart swoon. We recommend the Finn Juhl room, named after famous Danish designer Finn Juhl, for those who appreciate the aesthetics of this time period.

Hotel Ottilia

Hotel Ottilia in the Carlsberg City neighbourhood of Copenhagen is the design-savvy traveller’s dream. This recently converted hotel, which was once two industrial brewery buildings, seamlessly blends the past with the present by preserving original elements, such as malt hoppers, while infusing contemporary Nordic design. The exterior of the hotel is adorned with 64 giant golden discs, creating a striking visual, while the interior boasts a lounge area with 20-meter-high ceilings, metal girders and white-painted walls, and modern Danish furniture. Guest rooms are industrial-chic, with raw concrete walls, metal tables and lamps and high ceilings, providing a unique and captivating ambience. The hotel offers a small fitness room and friendly staff ready to assist with bike rentals, in-room fitness kits and local running routes. The hotel’s food and drink options are also noteworthy, including an upscale Italian restaurant on the top floor with great views and a terrace, and a breakfast buffet with plenty of options.

Zoku Copenhagen

If you’re in Copenhagen for either a short or a longer stay and looking for a stylish, efficient and comfortable place to call home, Zoku Copenhagen is a great choice. This hotel is a faithful adaptation of the popular and successful Zoku Amsterdam, known for its crisp and contemporary Dutch design, and its everything-in-its-place efficiency. The hotel is located in the up-and-coming district of Amager Vest, just to the south of the city centre, making it the ideal location for travellers in town for days, weeks or more. The accommodations at Zoku are geared towards the kind of creative work that takes place in this area, and to the youthful leisure travellers who are drawn to it. The standard lofts offer a lot of comforts in a modest space, including a kitchen, dining table, living room and even gymnastics rings for in-room exercise. The hotel also offers XL and XXL sizes lofts, as well as compact low-frills rooms for shorter stays without all the extras. The hotel’s check-in takes place in the rooftop-level greenhouse, surrounded by calming foliage and sunny spaces. The hotel also offers a bar and cafe, Living Room lounge space, business workspaces and a restaurant that serves modern and healthy fare in a casual and communal dining room.
