New hotels await in reopened Denmark

Felicity Long

Travelers eager to get to Denmark can now go regardless of vaccination status, as long as they can present proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test on arrival.

With that in mind — and since nothing says optimism for the tourism sector like new hotels — here are a few that visitors can get excited about:

• Brochner Hotels opened BOOK1 May 6 in Aarhus, Denmark’s second-largest city.

The property features 24 double rooms and four suites, as well as 444 dorm-style accommodations. The stand-out feature is its location in the city’s design-forward former library, which has presided over town center since 1934.

Amenities include free high-speed WiFi, a food court with restaurants and bars a sauna — this is Scandinavia, after all — and laundry facilities.

• The four-star Green Solutions House on the island of Bornholm is set to open its ecofriendly, 24-room new wing in September. 

The project is the work of Danish architecture firm 3XN and will feature a rooftop spa and conference facilities.

The property is located on Strandvejen, less than a mile from the city of Ronne and near the beach. Amenities include parking, WiFi and a restaurant featuring organic, locally sourced ingredients.

• Scandic Norreport is poised to open in September in Copenhagen’s Norreport train station.

The 100-room property will offer direct metro service to the airport and is near the city’s food halls and the Copenhagen Botanical Garden. Amenities will include a rooftop terrace, restaurant and sky bar with views of the city.

• Also in September, NH Collection Copenhagen will open on the harbor in the Christianshavn neighborhood.

The 394-room hotel will be located in a mid-century building originally designed by Danish architect Palle Suenson. Many of the guestrooms overlook the harbor, and connecting rooms are available for families.

• In October, A Place To in Esbjerg is poised to open on the west coast of Denmark. The 117-room property will be located on the top nine floors of a three-building residential complex and will offer a cafe and rooftop terrace, a laundromat, a bicycle workshop and electric-car rental outlet.

Each guestroom will offer a kitchenette and a private balcony overlooking the North Sea. The property was designed by BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) architectural firm, based in Denmark and New York, and the HAY design group.
