Hotel D'Angleterre in Copenhagen

Updated on August 20, 2014

The White Lady

Also referred to as The White Lady on Kongens Nytorv, The Hotel d’Angleterre is one of Europe’s Grande Dames originally and had re opened its doors to the public on the first of May after being restored fully. One of Europe’s first grand hotels, this hotel is also Denmark’s most luxurious hotel. The historical landmark dates back to 1755 and is designed as a palace that is neoclassic boasting a location in the center of the city. The Royal Suite sprawls across 2960 sq ft and is now the city’s biggest room complete with a grand overlooking balcony on Copenhagen and fireplaces.

Since 1755

Opened since 1755, the hotel is a rebellion against prevailing modernism, sensibility and democratic style of Copenhagen with high Victorian style and white glove services. Hans Christian Andersen was a 1- time guest who would still feel at home in any of the one hundred twenty-three state rooms perhaps writing tales at a desk that had been lacquered black and he would undoubtedly feel delight by the bathrooms with heavy marble veins. For a view of King’s New Square, book a room at the hotel’s front for views from the opera box, Nyhavn’s canal houses that are sherbert colored and the Royal Theater. The D’Angleterre Restaurant with its enveloped walls in foil gold is a French-inflected elegant setting for cuisine that is international and the popular Champagne brunch of the hotel. Even with the overall patina which is crusty, this hotel looks forward cautiously. Guests are able to unwind from high-tech living with a dip in the pool indoors or a massage made of papaya gel at the Spa and Fitness Center called Arndal.

The New Marchal Restaurant

Executive chef for the hotel Ronny Emborg, Michelin starred is appointed for the new Marchal Restaurant that is decorated lavishly. The first champagne bar of the city is Balthazar which serves one hundred sixty different cocktails and Champagnes. There is also a swimming pool, fitness room and urban spa.

Architect for Restoration

The restoration currently is collaborated between SPACE Copenhagen, GA Design International which is London based and CF Moller, Danish architect. From across the world, interior items including fabrics and furniture are selected individually. The refurbishment was accomplishment with the heritage of the hotel in mind. To revive the grand palace spirit, the façade went through renovations to do a reinvention of the original look of Parisian through changing the colors to a grey white from a creamy white and by the replacement of the old windows which were white and old with dark green, new, contrasting windows. At the level of the ground floor, the hotel is open to the city through large windows. The rooms which were originally one hundred twenty-three in number have been reduced to merely ninety, with the Royal Suite 250 sq mt making it the biggest. Every one of the rooms had been resorted to similar color palettes but has décor uniquely created by GA Designs. The banqueting rooms which are historical as well each and every lounge have all gone through restoration respecting the ambiance which was original and able to accommodate up to five hundred eighty people for parties.

Swimming Pool, Fitness Center and Spa

The new spa of d’Angleterre features signature treatments expansive menu, a 10 x 12 meter swimming indoor pool, a fitness studio that is fully equipped and wet areas.

Events and Meetings

The hotel has been the host of historical events countless times including royal occasions, diplomatic assemblies, weddings and formal galas. The refurbished hotel function room offers the ultimate event settings for celebrations and tailor made meetings. The Palm Court and Louis XVI ballrooms will continue being Copenhagen’s most desired space for entertaining.

Champagne and Dining Bar

The modern restaurant which is brasserie-style features a cocktail bar, open display kitchen and walk-in wine room. All of this is created to be a high energy, dynamic environment for both Copenhageners and residents alike. The new bar for champagne offers selections of cuisine that is tapas like, weekend live DJs and caviar services. To add further to the burgeoning culinary scene of Denmark, the Hotel d’Angleterre will be featuring a French fine dining restaurant located on upper floors providing Danish Royal Theater iconic views.
