This fantasy castle in the style of an opulent Moorish riad commands one of Copenhagen’s most magical settings. Opened as a restaurant in 1909 in the twinkling, fairy-tale grounds of Tivoli Gardens, it remains a family-run business with service of the highest degree.

Divided between the original building and a modern wing, 38 suites are a mixture of European decadence and Middle Eastern glamour – all muted by classy Nordic design. Gaze from bedroom balconies at the blossoming gardens or sunbathe with a cocktail at the rooftop pool.

The hotel has an unbeatable location in the heart of the city; although Copenhagen Central Station and multiple tram stops are on the doorstep, rooms are quiet and not even a rumble can be heard from inside.

It backs onto the Tivoli Gardens, a stone’s throw from the rides of the historic amusement park.
