Copenhagen’s trendy Andersen Hotel reopens after extensive renovation
The award-winning Andersen Hotel in the Danish capital Copenhagen has reopened to the public following an extensive refurbishment.
The ultra cool 69-bedroom hotel is located in the heart of Vesterbro, widely regarded as Copenhagen’s most hip quarter.
Karen Nedergaard, the Managing Director at the boutique hotel, told Luxury Lifestyle Magazine that she was excited with the re-launch and the improvements would further cement the hotel as Copenhagen’s trendiest establishment.
He said: “The hotel has worked with brands such as Frandsen Lighting who designed bespoke lighting for the bedrooms. AGUSTAV were used for some of the furniture in the lobby, whilst MUTTO provided ‘The-Dots’ hangers in the bedrooms. Elsewhere, Vauni designed the bio fireplace in the lounge and Philippe Starck Design all of the bathrooms.”
The decor throughout is both colourful and vibrant and includes textiles and wallpapers from the award-winning Designers Guild in the UK. There are four different categories of room and the hotel’s impressive exterior retains its original features.
Andersen Hotel features a daily ‘Wine Hour’ in the Lobby Lounge between 5pm and 6pm where guests can enjoy complimentary wine, meet fellow travellers and plan where they wish to dine in the evening.
The hotel is a keen supporter of local art. The walls of the Lobby Lounge are filled with installations by local artists who can showcase and sell their works here. The hotel hosts art events every two months to introduce the works and the artist and to sell pieces over a ‘Meet the artist’ evening. Then the hotel welcomes a new artist to this superb background to display work.
Andersen Hotel, like its sister hotel the Absalon Hotel (which is housed just opposite), has been part of the same family for over 75 years. The hotel is named after her grandmother Erna Andersen, who founded the two hotels. Both operate a CONCEPT24 package which allows a late departure at no extra cost meaning the guest keeps the room for 24 hours, no matter what the time of arrival.
Vesterbro, the meat packing and cool neighbourhood, has an increasing number of art galleries and warehouses. The Butcher’s Lad is a combined ‘body conservatory and art gallery’ fusing a physical workout while enjoying modern art at the same time. If that sounds too strenuous then visitors should head to the V1 Gallery, home to visual art, installations and sculpture designed to challenge the norm. The Centre of Photography is located in a high ceiling gallery featuring fine art photography with equal emphasis on both classic and contemporary Danish artists.
