Hotel d’Angleterre Building
The main idea of the renovation is to create a hotel that feels like a luxurious private home – and not least a Danish home. “It is a historic building which is part of the city of Copenhagen and embodies a stylish elegance. We will strive to give it a contemporary classic – as well as exclusive – appearance” stated the architect. The new Hotel d’Angleterre will have fewer, but larger rooms: The existing 123 rooms will be reduced to 91 The rooms will have an average size of 50 m2 – the largest suite will be 250 m2 ex. balcony. No two rooms are alike – they will all be unique.
