Copenhagen hotels update

The accommodation capacity in the Greater Copenhagen region is increasing with both new hotel openings and existing hotels expanding. By 2017 there are 46,673 rooms to pick and choose from and in the years to come a wide range of hostels, hotels and boutique hotels will expand the selection of accommodation options giving the city a total of 51,983 rooms. We listed some of the developments in Copenhagen below.

Airport hotel upgrade
Copenhagen Airport A/S has teamed up with Scandinavian hotel operator Nordic Choice Hotels and recently opened Clarion Hotel Copenhagen Airport, which is Nordic Choice Hotels’ high-end brand. The 378-room hotel will incorporate a large conference center, which will help attract new conferences, congresses and international events to the city.

Scandic expansions
The Nordic hotel chain Scandic will increase its extensive portfolio with two new 4-star hotels, Scandic Kødbyen and Scandic Falconer. Scandic Kødbyen will be located in the popular Meatpacking District with 370 rooms while Scandic Falconer will open in the fashionable neighborhood of Frederiksberg with 330 rooms and a conference center that can accommodate events for up to 3,000 people.

In heart of town
The city centre will see an exciting range of brand new 5-star hotels when Hotel Herman K, Hotel Sander’s, Nobis Hotel Copenhagen and Hotel Post Nord start operating in the years to come. Wakeup Copenhagen will supplement the high-end options with another 2-star hotel offering 585 rooms next year.

Hostels for the budget traveler
The Danish family owned Arp-Hansen Hotel Group will open their first hostel in the city centre in the summer of 2017. The hostel will hold 1,000 beds and 280 rooms, all with shower and toilet. Due to the new hostel’s large size, the hostel meets the needs of conferences with large groups of people, who wish to stay central on a budget. The German A&O Hotels and Hostels Group is also coming to town when they open their first hostel in Copenhagen in the buzzing area of Nørrebro with 270 rooms this Spring.
