Villa Copenhagen situated in the heart of Denmark’s capital city recently opened its doors to guests. The hotel is housed in the century-old Danish Post and Telegraph office, and located adjacent to Tivoli Gardens. It stands as a Grande Dame hotel for the 21st century and features accommodation of 390 rooms.
The property offers approachable, conscious luxury through a commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and meaningful experiences that connect guests to the landscape, culture, and energy of the city. The hotel appointed Universal Design Studio to ensure that the new interiors matched the grandeur of the 1912 Neo-Baroque architecture.
The London-based architectural firm created several public spaces and 381 guestrooms across the hotel’s five floors and has kept the building at the forefront of Scandinavian design for another hundred years. The property perfectly evokes the ambiance of a sophisticated Danish residence.
Each room features high ceilings, herringbone floors, restored original windows, gold accents, and muted colour palettes that pay homage to paintings by 19th century Danish master Vilhelm Hammershøi. Thoughtful touches include keyless entry, remote check-in, virtual check-out, and an optional white glove service.
The firm also designed the two-story Universal Penthouse Suite, which features a grand walnut and steel spiral staircase leading up to lounge space and a master bedroom. Peter Høgh Pedersen, Managing Director, Villa Copenhagen said in a statement that the project has proven to be a labour of love and serves as a testament to Copenhagen’s resilient spirit in many ways.
He mentioned that the team is delighted to reveal Villa Copenhagen to the public and are confident that the health measures that have been put n place will allow guests to be at ease in the new era of travel. He shared that the vision behind the build was to create an authentic destination for the many and not the few that upholds three key pillars- contrast, conscious luxury, and happiness.
He also said that the company believes that these values are imbibed in the hotel design, guest facilities and amenities, collaborative partnerships, and it approach to service. He mentioned that it recognises Villa Copenhagen’s connection to the city and strengthens the belief that luxury hospitality should focus on conscious choices that benefit the local environment and surrounding communities.
