Villa Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark
Viewed from above, Villa Copenhagen is designed like a conjoined P and T - a clue to the fact that it was originally built, in 1912, to house Denmark's central Post & Telegraph office. Since spring 2020, though, it's been enjoying a new lease of life as a five-star hotel. Everything about the building has been renovated and restored, preserving original features but upgrading to 21st-century standards at the same time - so as well as high ceilings and grand proportions, you get slick technology and a commitment to operating as sustainably as possible. Its 390 bedrooms come in all shapes and sizes, but elegant good looks and high-spec finishes are a given throughout, and brand new facilities include a rooftop pool with a view towards Tivoli.
From the front door it's just a couple of hundred yards to the fairy-lit wonderland of Tivoli, one of Copenhagen's most magical attractions.
By plane: there are direct flights to Copenhagen from London (1 hour 45 mins), Manchester (1 hour 50 mins) and Edinburgh (1 hour 45 mins). The hotel is around 20 minutes' drive from the airport. skyscanner.net
