Last week, Norway’s hotel king Petter Stordalen opened his new prestige hotel Villa Copenhagen in the capital of Denmark. Nordic Choice Hotels claims it is a social scene in Copenhagen allowing the past, present and future to come together in an inspiring and playful ambience. Read more about the new unique and stunning lodging experience launched in Copenhagen.
What used to be the Central Post & Telegraph Head Office, opened in 1912, has become Villa Copenhagen, a hotel with gorgeous historic accents blended beautifully with contemporary Nordic designs and interior accents.
The hotel features 390 rooms, a rooftop swimming pool, a large, green interior courtyard and a variety of dining outlets. Villa Copenhagen is set in a prime location in the city, moments away from the famous attractions Tivoli Gardens and Meatpacking District.
“We are a hotel unlike any other. We live by our values of contrast, conscious luxury and happiness, determined to redefine the industry by offering experiences of beauty, knowledge and humanity at the deepest and most inspiring level. We want to be the best hotel for the world and take full responsibility for our environmental footprint,” is a statement on the hotel’s website.
Villa Copenhagen is the newest independent project by Nordic Hotels & Resorts, and has been designed to uphold the group’s commitment to eco-sustainability. “Conscious luxury, as we call it, is about enjoying everything life has to offer from unique experiences and unexpected encounters, to quality food and inspiring surroundings, while at the same time taking responsibility for our actions and our impact on the planet.”
For more than 100 years, this building has been admired for its Neo-Baroque architecture. Its transformation to a hotel is fitting as a gathering place for a new generation. Much of the hotel’s design was created by London-based Universal Design Studio, an award-winning architecture and interiors studio, including the grand staircases, and some public spaces. Throughout the hotel, Universal Design Studio has used a mixture of contemporary and classic Scandinavian design styles.

Throughout the hotel, Villa Copenhagen is prioritizing conscious luxury and using natural materials and environments to create warm, comfortable spaces. By investing in renewable energy, sustainable local partnerships, and forward-thinking initiatives, Villa Copenhagen shows itself to be thoughtful and modern – and when this is added to the building’s architectural and cultural heritage, it’s clear why guests will soon fall in love with Copenhagen’s new grand dame hotel.
