This modernist building in the central shopping district was originally a department store, designed by Danish architect Vilhelm Lauritzen and opened in 1928. Three-quarters of a century later, discount shoppers gave way to well-heeled guests, as the building was transformed into an upscale design hotel. There's an instant wow factor as the escalator from street level delivers you into a vast atrium lobby, flooded with light from a wall of glass on the far side. Rooms, too, are decidedly handsome, especially since a recent revamp injected new warmth and glamour. There's a relaxed vibe in the restaurant and bar if you fancy hanging out there, but it's just as handy for exploring - with sightseeing, shopping and entertainment options all within easy walking distance.



Torvehallerne - five minutes' walk up the road - is a great indoor-outdoor food market, mixing fresh produce counters with eat-in food stalls.

A 10-minute walk north will take you to Rosenborg Castle, the Botanical Gardens and the Natural History Museum.
By plane: direct flights to Copenhagen from London, Manchester and Edinburgh (1 hour 45 minutes). It's a 25-minute drive to the hotel. Parking costs DKK 500 per day.
