Hotel Alexandra Copenhagen

Mid-Century Danish Design Delight

district: Rådhuspladsen

Copenhagen’s Hotel Alexandra is a highly original hotel, a century-old building whose interiors seem to have crystallized sometime around 1955 featuring many mid-century Danish designs. Over the past 20 years, Hotel Alexandra has carefully sourced a large collection of world famous Danish mid-century vintage furniture, and decorated its 61 rooms with them.

Combined with textiles, wallpapers and other period gems, they take you back in time to experience living like the design-loving Danes did, in the 50’s and 60’s. A Danish furniture museum you can live in… (and virtually every object is for sale). 

There is the Arne Jacobsen room, the Hans Wegner room, and the Finn Juhl room. Entry-level rooms are minuscule, the main distinction between the rooms and suites, more than size, is the degree to which they’ve realized the vision of a particular designer. All rooms come with a flat-screen TV, coffee and tea making facilities, a safe and a work desk.

The staff has created a collection of guidebooks for guests, one with a curated selection of bookshops, another for nightlife, restaurants, or flea markets. There is a sleek lobby bar and Godtfolk, a restaurant serving comfort food. Bicycle rental.
