Vibe: A mid-century Danish design delight.
Area: City Centre, just a few steps from Rådhuspladsen, the Railway Station and Tivoli.
The DNA: 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. 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. The staff has created a collection of guidebooks for guests, one with a curated selection of bookshops, another for nightlife, restaurants, or flea markets.
Suite-Me-Up: There is the Collector’s Suite in which virtually everything is for sale (so it changes all the time), the Q Suite dedicated to female Danish designers and the Verner Panton Suite, master of the futuristic. Entry-level rooms are minuscule, the main distinction between the rooms (like the Arne Jacobsen room, the Hans Wegner room, and the Finn Juhl room) and suites, more than size, is the degree to which they’ve realized the vision of a particular designer.
