The recently opened grand 77-room Nobis Hotel in Copenhagen is housed in an gorgeous historic 5,400-square-meter landmark building that originally served as the Royal Danish Conservatory of Music. Bringing the Nobis magic to the midst of the Danish capital, the hotel is starchitect Gert Wingårdh’s “updated take on Le Corbusier. Danish classicism, which this building is a fine example of, is something special—more sophisticated, more stripped down than in Sweden,” he says.
The historic landmark building on Niels Brocks Gade has been transformed into a cutting-edge contemporary luxury hotel—one where, like its Stockholm predecessor, food plays a central role.
The restaurant, which takes liberty with design styles from the 20th-century, borrows from the best of Nordic culinary traditions and serves up modern seasonal cuisine. At Nobis Hotel Copenhagen, modernism meets classicism and it’s all lusciously augmented by such embracing amenities as a gym, a sauna with cooling pool and hammam, a bar, and a lounge area that, taken together, serve as an attractive new locus for Copenhagen’s downtown social scene.
