Seeing as I won’t be flying out to Scandinavia for a little while yet, I thought I’d share some more travel inspiration with you: the newly launched design hotel, Villa Copenhagen.
I’ve walked past the former Central Post and Telegraph Head Office, which dates back to 1912, many times and often wondered what amazing transformation was going on inside.
Just fifteen minutes by train from the airport, Villa Copenhagen is perfectly placed across the road from the iconic Tivoli Gardens, as well as Copenhagen’s Central Station if you fancy a day trip to nearby Malmo.
Having spent the last three years being renovated, the Neo-baroque style building by architect Heinrich Wench, has now become a glamorous 7-story, 390-room five-star hotel offering conscious luxury and some much-needed calm in the heart of my favourite city.
Part of the Nordic Hotels & Resorts Group, but with its own name and identity, the ambition for Villa Copenhagen is to be more than just another lavish hotel for exploring visitors. With its original interior courtyard, incredible 25m heated rooftop swimming pool, wine bar, brasserie and traditional bakery I’m sure it will quickly become a favourite meeting point for those living and working in the Danish capital too.
The décor throughout the hotel is also a perfect mix of traditional and contemporary Scandinavian design. As well as gorgeous Skandinavisk products in every room to soothe the senses, you will also spot pieces from some of my favourite furniture brands, such as Normann Copenhagen and Warm Nordic, all of which are perfectly framed by the grand high ceilings, herringbone floors and original windows.
I’m sure you will agree that Villa Copenhagen looks simply wonderful and I cannot wait to experience for myself when I head back.
