Hotel D’Angleterre
Kongens Nytorv 34, 1050
+45 33 12 00 95

Look up the word “plush” in the dictionary and I’m pretty sure you’ll find a picture of this hotel next to the definition. After undergoing a $110 million reno, the D’Angleterre, which dates back to 1755, is as luxurious and serene as it should be, and its location in the center of Copenhagen makes it a prime place to make your home base. 

Hotel SP34
Sankt Peers Stræde 34
+45 33 13 30 00

With daily wine hour, live concerts and DJ sessions on Friday nights, and a fully organic breakfast buffet, SP34 is definitely for the modern traveler. Located in Copenhagen’s Bohemian Latin Quarter known for its cafes, restaurants and design stores, SP34 is a great option for those looking for a more local experience.

The Nimb Hotel
Bernstorffsgade 5, 1577
+45 88 70 00 00

With only 38 rooms, you’ll have to plan ahead, but it’s worth it. The rooms are individually decorated and each boasts a view of the beautiful Tivoli Gardens (and bonus: you’ll get free entrance with your stay).

The Sanders
Tordenskjoldsgade 15, 1055
+45 46 40 00 40

The newest addition to the Copenhagen boutique hotel scene, The Sanders marries high-end luxury with quirky Danish design. Owned by former Danish Royal dancer, Alexander Kølpin, it’s no surprise that the décor is somewhat theatrical, with each of the 54 rooms modeled after the design you might have found on a luxury train back in the day (think Orient Express). All of the public spaces are equally as charming and dramatic and offer lots of outdoor options, which is huge draw in the long days of the Danish summer.

SKT Petri Copenhagen
Krystalgade 22, 1172
+45 33 45 91 00

Maybe I love SKT Petri because its housed in what used to be home to the Daells Varehus department store, or maybe it’s because even though it’s large (288 rooms) it still feels boutique-y. But whatever it is, it’s a hotel that has my heart. The rooms are well designed, bright and clean and the Garden Courtyard is an awesome spot to take lunch.
