Hotel Sanders Copenhagen

Situated in a quiet cobbled street just behind the Royal Danish Theatre and the Academy of Fine Arts, Hotel Sanders is not only the best hotel in Copenhagen during 3 Days of Design, but also a great place to stay all year round, taking advantage of its location close to the water at Nyhaven.

The moment you enter the hotel, you feel like you are at home. Whether you’re sipping your Manhattan in the award-winning 1950s-style TATA cocktail bar or reading a book at one of the street tables and chairs of Sanders Kitchen watching the world go by, you’ll immediately feel the charm and spirit of Copenhagen.

Sanders Kitchen

This atmosphere was created by former ballet dancer Alexander Kølpin and executed by London-based design studio Lind + Almond, who give this place its signature Scandi influences, such as mid-century modern furnishings and hygge-inducing candles that create a constant atmosphere of cosiness, combined with somehow amazing details like bamboo and a tent-like courtyard restaurant with fabrics by Danish fabric designer Helene Blanche.

There is also a rooftop terrace, which I never make it to, but it is inviting with the typical northern lights that create a lovely atmosphere through the glass roof and open terrace spaces.

The rooms echo the same design spirit as the entrance and restaurant areas of the hotel, but have a charming vintage, old-fashioned look without neglecting the focus on fine materials, wooden floors and all the comforts you are looking for.

I suggest you book a room facing the street with a large window that invites you to take a break from your busy day, sit down in a comfortable sofa and make time for a cup of tea that is part of the minibar.

The bathrooms are quite bare (no underfloor heating), but mine had a large window with natural light and a bathroom with Ortigia amenities.

The concierge will provide you with the hotel bicycles, which you should absolutely consider using to get around the city.

The Sanders Hotel House Rosé Vincent

Definitely a special place that made me feel part of it, especially when I came home at night and enjoyed a glass of Vincent rosé named after one of the owners’ children from their finca in Mallorca.
