Compact, sexy, culture-rich and charismatic, this most stylish, progressive and tastiest of all the Nordic capitals never disappoints.

Official star rating:
Sleep in a space with a story to tell in the former Central Post & Telegraph Head Office, now functioning as a luxury hotel. Wooden staircases lead to stylish suites, belts from postbags hang above the bar and DJs perform in an atrium once used as a parking lot for horse-drawn carriages.
Designer suites could grace the cover of a glossy magazine, but even standard rooms are high class. Dine on gourmet goods at a breakfast banquet in the former mail sorting room or hang out with a fashion crowd in the Kontrast brasserie.
From a rooftop pool heated by waste energy, to furnishings made with recycled plastic – it’s also one of the most sustainable hotels in town.
Situated just around the corner from the Central Station on one of Copenhagen’s wide, busy boulevards, the immediate surrounds of the hotel are not the most picturesque – office buildings and lines of cycle racks at the back of the station – but all the main sights – Tivoli Gardens, the Glyptoteket Art Museum and The National Museum are all within easy reach.
Don’t be put off by the network of nearby train tracks; soundproofed windows shut out any sound. And although areas around train stations are traditional a bit grotty, this is Copenhagen – it’s as safe and clean as anywhere else.
