Copenhagen is a city adored for many reasons, but when it comes to five star hotels the options are slim. There is one hotel however, Hotel D’Angleterre, which offers the ultimate opulence. With magnificent rooms and faultless service, none would dispute it’s reputation as the ‘best hotel in Copenhagen’. Needless to say, I was pretty excited about visiting this palatial accommodation.
Hotel D’Angleterre has a prime location moments away from the 17th century colourful facades of Nyhavn, and nearby to all the central attractions in town. The grandeur and beauty of the hotel is immediately noticeable from the prestigious white exterior, which explains why it is widely known as “the White Lady on Kongens Nytorv”. Inside, the property is chic and modern (thanks to a recent $70 million renovation) but remains timeless and traditional in style.
There are 90 rooms in total, each sensitively redesigned to remain loyal to the hotel’s heritage whilst offering guests every contemporary amenity they could need for their stay. We were immediately at home in our stunning Deluxe one-bedroom suite on the third floor. The spacious suite was decorated in subtle shades of dusty lavender, with delicate soft furnishings and modern artwork on the walls.
The living room featured a large sofa and working area with functional desk and writing set. Fresh pink roses, gourmet chocolates and a bottle of champagne were a lovely touch.
I fell in love instantly with the bedroom. The bed (perhaps the largest I have ever seen) was topped with plump pillows of varying sizes and a luxe purple blanket. A pillow menu offered a range of alternative pillows for the bed, which we delighted in choosing from. State of the art art conditioning systems meant that the room temperature was easy to control and ensured we had a blissful nights sleep.
The elegant bathroom was luxuriously decorated in white marble, with a huge bath and walk-in shower. The toiletries, from Hotel D’Angleterre’s own brand ‘Amazing Space by Laura Bonne’, are of a high quality, with a larger range of products stocked downstairs in the spa. As well as the usual toiletries, Hotel D’Angleterre offer extras such as a packet of make-up remover wipes, which I found very useful and thoughtful.
After a long and restful night’s sleep we ventured downstairs (in our super soft D’Angleterre dressing gowns) to experience the spa. Here, there is an amazing indoor swimming pool, sauna and steam room. After 20 lengths and a relax in the sauna we were refreshed and ready for our room-service breakfast.
The array of breakfast treats was almost too pretty to eat. Every dish was carefully cooked and perfectly plated, made from the highest quality ingredients. It was all divine, but I can particularly recommend the mini Danish pastries, super sweet fresh orange juice and the delicious hot egg dishes.
Hotel D’Angleterre was the most special part of our trip to Copenhagen. I left with a heavy heart and a complete understanding of why this hotel has such a sparkling reputation both in Denmark and around the world.
