Nobis Hotel, Copenhagen, Denmark
If staying somewhere stylish is more important than sticking to a limited budget, the five-star Nobis Hotel Copenhagen has to come high up your wish list. Opened in 2017, it may be pricey but it's undeniably handsome, and the Danish capital's only member of Design Hotels. The 1903 building was formerly home to the Royal Danish Academy of Music and in its new hotel incarnation its grand neoclassical features have been joined by the kind of chic contemporary interiors that grace the pages of glossy magazines. The restaurant and bar are good at their game, too, serving cut-above food and cocktails, and the location is handy for sightseeing, within easy walking distance of cultural attractions, entertainment possibilities and transport connections.
It's a ten-minute walk from here to the Islands Brygge waterfront, where you can rent a boat and swim in the harbour pool.
The hotel is next to The Glyptotek art museum and Tivoli Gardens. Hans Christian Andersen's fairy-tale house is also a short walk away.
By plane: direct flights to Copenhagen from London, Manchester and Edinburgh (1 hour 45 minutes). It's a 15-minute drive to the hotel. skyscanner.net
