Copenhagen’s hotel capacity is rising

April 1, 2015 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

During the past six years, Copenhagen’s hotel bed capacity has risen by 32 per cent – equivalent to 10,300 beds. Today, the number of available hotel beds in the capital region is expected to exceed 42,000 soon. New expansions and facelifts equal an opportunity to choose green solutions. 71 per cent of the hotels in Copenhagen are currently eco-certified and the number is rising.

Quality Airport Hotel Dan has just undertaken a large environmentally friendly interior renovation allowing for large savings on the energy account. The new installations enable wireless control of the temperature and recycling of 75 per cent of the excess heat from the air conditioning.tivoli_hotel

All light bulbs are replaced with LED, and emergency exit signs have also been replaced with less energy consuming ones. According to Jens Pedersen, CEO of Quality Airport Hotel Dan, the hotel is currently planning an extensive facelift of the lobby, bar, and reception.

The facelift will be finished for March 1, 2016. Big developments in 2014 Some of the biggest hotel openings, expansions and facelifts took place in 2014. Iconic luxury hotel D’Angleterre reopened its doors after an extensive renovation and refurbishing.

The hotel offers meeting and event facilities with room for up to 560 dining guests. All meeting and event space is equipped with state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment installed in 2013, as well as wireless and wired high-speed internet connectivity. Last year, the Danish Brøchner Hotels chain launched a new, exclusive hotel and conference center in the Latin Quarter of Copenhagen. Hotel SP34 has 118 rooms and a two-story conference centre that seats 100 participants.

A private cinema for up to 25 people creates a whole new possibility for event-making in the historic city center.

Brøchner Hotels also acquired the famous Hotel Astoria situated next to Copenhagen’s Central Station. The plan is to refurbish both the interior and exterior of the hotel and turn it into a three-star boutique hotel by March 2016 with meeting facilities for smaller-sized meetings or events. 2014 was also a year of expansion for the Danish family-owned Arp-Hansen Hotel Group. The chain launched a new Wakeup Copenhagen hotel offering 498 rooms.

Wakeup Copenhagen Borgergade in the city center is eco-certified and provides service comparable to a three/four-starred hotel, but at the price of a two-starred hotel. Arp-Hansen Hotel Group also owns Tivoli Hotel and Tivoli Congress Center, which has room for up to 4,000 meeting participants (2,400 seated) and is currently expanding with 238 new rooms and 38 new conference rooms in 2015. Danish low-budget hotel chain CABINN established the architectonic masterpiece Hotel CABINN Metro designed by the famous American Architect Daniel Libeskind in Orestad, and the building has become a symbol for this new part of Copenhagen.

During 2014, CABINN opened its new 10, 000 m2 expansion reaching a capacity of 708 rooms. The hotel has meeting facilities with room for 10-65 participants.
