The Hotel Sanders Oozes Luxury in Copenhagen

The Hotel Sanders Oozes Luxury in Copenhagen

From eclectic design to cosy interiors Hotel Sanders is setting high standards for luxury boutique hotels in Copenhagen discovers Melanie Mullan.

It’s a difficult and rare attribute for a hotel that is perfectly elegant, with enviously well-dressed staff, to make you feel like you’ve just arrived home. However, within half an hour of our arrival at Hotel Sanders, a glass of wine in hand and dinner ordered, we’re chatting with food and beverage manager Sally like she was a friend we hadn’t seen in ages; discovering her favourite spots in the city. It’s this openness and friendliness that we experience throughout our stay that adds to the beauty of this luxury boutique hotel.

Situated in the centre of the city, a short walk from the nearby metro station – a neighbour of the Opera House and Royal Danish Theatre, and founded by former Danish ballet dancer Alexander Kolpin; the luxury boutique hotel fits in perfectly to its glamorous surroundings. The exteriors set the tone of our stay with a row of Hotel Sanders bikes on the footpath, blankets on the outdoor chairs and candles glimmering through the front windows – the warming welcome our soaked and frozen bodies need. Passing through the draped green curtain entrance to The Living Room, the flames from the open fires dance to their candlelit surroundings, collections of books stand willing to be flicked through and both vintage and bespoke furnishing combine with deep blue velvet and wooden textures to complete its home away from home appeal.

The bedrooms highlight the Scandinavians’ love of minimalism and simplicity that is evident throughout; olive green walls and wooden rattan are paired with handsome furniture and specially commissioned prints while the complimentary mini bar is stocked with chocolate, crisps and soft drinks – take away fuel for exploring the streets of Copenhagen. Sanders Kitchen is a space that looks and feels like it belongs to an extremely wealthy friend, a space that we could only ever dream of owning. Bright white tiling contrasts with dark wood and flowerpots, while pastries and fruit are displayed on the marble top island for breakfast – later exchanged for a selection of wines for evening service. The dinner menu changes daily with three starters and mains on offer; the stand out for us was the smoked salmon starter that melted in our mouth; a combination of lively and zesty flavours that still make my mouth water.

Having only opened its doors in November, the buzz this hotel has created is palpable. By night locals and guests return for the cocktail list in the Tata bar, the cosy spot by the fire or the daily changing menu from Sanders Kitchen. By day, guests can make the most of the conservatory garden on the fifth floor, where coffee and snacks accompany city views. Whatever your choice, the homely, welcoming and luxurious feeling is guaranteed – along with not wanting to leave.

Rooms from 2000DKK per night. hotelsanders.com
