New hotel openings
The ambitions are high when the Danish family owned Arp-Hansen Hotel Group will open their first hostel in the center of the city in the summer of 2017. The hostel will hold 1,000 beds and 280 rooms, all with shower and toilet, which the hotel group plan to be the city’s best hostel. Due to the new hostels’ size, the hostel can be booked in relation to conferences with large groups of people, who wish to stay cheap and central.
Nimb Hotel, in the amusement park Tivoli Gardens, was recently awarded the prestigious award as the Hotel of the year of Small Luxury Hotels of the world. In late 2017, the hotel is to expand with 2,000 m2, including 20 new luxury suites, plus a spectacular roof terrace with a heated pool, restaurant and bar.
The meetings and conference venue, Charlottehaven, is constructing a new 16-storey tower, which will contain 37 apartments. Each apartment will be nearly twice the size of a traditional hotel room, and will include both kitchen and bath facilities. The hotel will have its own reception and lounge area. The new concept hotel is expected to be ready in late 2017.
The hotel expansions will continue in 2019, where the Danish low budget hotel chain CABINN will increase its extensive portfolio with a new hotel right next door to the Tivoli Congress Center and around the corner from the Copenhagen main train station. The new hotel CABINN Copenhagen will offer approximately 1,250 rooms of which 1,000 will be divided in CABINN’s standard range of hotel rooms, and the remaining 250 rooms will be established as CABINN Apartments with kitchenette, suitable for longer stays.
Hotel takeovers and facelifts
There are also hotel takeovers taking place in the metropolis. In October 2018, Scandic Hotels is to take over one of the city’s most popular hotels and conference centers – the existing Radisson Blu Falconer hotel. The hotel is located in the district of Frederiksberg in central Copenhagen, and the conference center accommodates events for up to 3,000 people. In connection with the takeover, the hotel will extend to offer 300 rooms, and change name to Scandic Falconer.
In connection with the opening of the new Kvæsthus Pier in the Copenhagen inner harbor and the Danish Royal Playhouse, Scandic Front Hotel modernized all its rooms, where Scandinavian design tradition blending luxury with comfort is creating an even cosier, quieter and more homely experience offering 12 hotels in Copenhagen.
Hotel Scandic front is not the only Copenhagen hotel that received a facelift Hotel Skt. Annæ is a newly renovated 4-star hotel, previously known as Hotel Neptun, recently experienced a total makeover. However, the atmosphere of the hotel is affectionate preserved, so guests still can sense the hotels inherent history, in the heart of Copenhagen.
