Copenhagen hotel capacity rises steadily

Variety of new and renovated hotels add to trend
Ambitions will be high when the family-owned Arp-Hansen Hotel Group opens its first hostel in central Copenhagen in summer 2017. It will hold a thousand beds in 280 rooms, all with shower and toilet, in what the hotel group plans will be the city’s best hostel.
Due to its size, the hostel can be booked especially in relation to conferences with large groups of people who want to stay central and cheap, destination marketing body Wonderful Copenhagen says.
Meanwhile, Nimb Hotel in the Tivoli Gardens amusement park was recently awarded Small Luxury Hotels of the World’s prestigious hotel of the year award. In late 2017, it is to expand by 2,000 m2, including 20 new luxury suites and a roof terrace with a heated pool, restaurant and bar.
The meeting and conference venue Charlottehaven is building a new 16-floor tower that will contain 37 apartments. Each apartment will be nearly twice the size of a traditional hotel room and include kitchen and bath facilities. The property will also have its own reception and lounge area and is expected to open also in late 2017.
The hotel expansions continue in 2019, when Danish low-cost chain CABINN ups its portfolio with a new property next door to the Tivoli Congress Centre, around the corner from Copenhagen’s main train station. CABINN Copenhagen will offer around 1,250 rooms.
Hotel takeovers are also taking place. In October 2018, Scandic Hotels will take over the existing Radisson Blu Falconer hotel in the district of Frederiksberg, whose conference centre accommodates events for up to 3,000 people. The hotel will extend to offer 300 rooms and change its name to Scandic Falconer.
Scandic Front Hotel has modernised its rooms, and also getting a facelift is the Hotel Skt Annæ, a 4-star hotel previously known as Hotel Neptun.
