Nimb Hotel
Bernstorffsgade 5, Indre By
The singularly best way to see the Tivoli Gardens is to spend the night at Hotel Nimb and enjoy the modern Danish design along with the view. (Tivoli, if you aren’t familiar with it, is basically what would happen if you put a beautiful and tasteful amusement park inside New York’s Central Park.) Originally a bazaar and restaurant, Hotel Nimb has called the amusement park and gardens in the center of Copenhagen home since 1909. Behind the original Moorish-style exterior, the hotel is home to a half-dozen places to eat and drink, a wellness center and hammam, and Denmark’s first rooftop pool. If you don’t spend the night, hit up one of the rooftop terrace’s events after dark or grab a drink at the hotel bar. The old-school Danish charm and modern Scandinavian design are the exact recipe for highbrow hygge. Note you’re in Denmark now and sustainability is king: The hotel gets its power from a wind farm and serves organic food throughout its restaurants.
Hotel SP34
Skt. Peders Straede 34, Indre By
Studious, clean, and efficient, Hotel SP34 is a new kid on the block, offering up a comfortable stay in the bohemian Latin Quarter, just a bit outside the city center. The space is made up of three townhouses, which lend a quaint, laid-back feel—think: grey-walled guest rooms, mid-century modern furnishings, and brass light fixtures. The terraced rooms offer floor-to-ceiling views of either the city or the courtyard. There's an outpost of Cocks and Cows, a local chain that serves Americana-style burgers, steaks, and BBQ fare. In the hotel lobby there's a complimentary wine hour that's a hit with the twentysomethings.
Hotel Alexandra
H. C. Andersens Blvd. 8, Indre By
Top-notch accommodations aside, this hotel houses an impressive collection of mid-century Danish design. The team has amassed vintage pieces over the years, making the entire stay here seem like a throwback to the early 1960's. Design enthusiasts should opt for the Collector's Suite, which was decorated by Anders Petersen, an avid collector of mid-century art and furniture. It's worth noting the hotel's location is within walking distance from the Latin Quarter, Tivoli Gardens, City Hall Square, and Strøget.
