I’ve written about Noma (albeit, briefly) before. However, it was through World of Wanderlust that I discovered Denmark’s capital has long been synonymous with design, sustainability, fashion and innovation. For those looking for an establishment which embodies all these values, travellers need look no further than the Avenue Hotel, located in Nørrebro, a vibrant, multicultural neighbourhood in northwest Copenhagen, which is situated approximately five-minutes’ walk from the Metro and Jægersborggade, a location synonymous with some of the best coffee Copenhagen has to offer.
The Avenue was built in 1898 by Emil Blichfeldt, the architect responsible for the famous entrance to Tivoli Gardens and is home to 68 distinctive, stylishly-designed rooms. There is a room for every budget – Single, Small Single, Family, Superior Double and Superior Tower. All rooms are decorated with contemporary furnishings from Missoni, Design by Us, GUBI and Bestlite Lamps with large windows allowing abundant natural light and fantastic views of the surroundings.
The hotel recently commissioned new wall art throughout the building with mobile-only shots of favourite local spots in Copenhagen selected by Danish Instagrammers Hanni Gharib, Thomas Søndergaard and Morten Nordstrøm. The rooms, corridors, restaurant and lobby which feature these images of Copenhagen also hold QR codes instructing visitors where to find the locations so guests can live like locals whilst they are visiting the city.
There is something for every kind of guest and the Avenue Hotel is innovative with its offerings. For example, every Wednesday, the Avenue presents the Copenhagen Classical Lounge between 8-11PM with DJs Katrine Ring and Stephan Bomberg fusing classical music with electronica and other genres. A Danish take on British High Tea where you can enjoy delicious gourmet cakes from award-winning pastry chefs along with local high quality tea was chosen as one of the top places to go by AOK.dk, in addition to a recent pop up shop collaboration with the Danish retailer FINDERSKEEPERS, where guests could purchase design and art from 25 upcoming Danish designers.
There is a patio where guests can enjoy breakfast in the summer or a warm beverage by the fire in the winter, which recently hosted events for Copenhagen Fashion Week. In the bar, you can enjoy special edition cocktails or experience beer from the local brewery Nørrebro Bryghus and high quality liquor and spirits along with special dishes from the local neighbourhood.
Copenhagen has a lot to offer its visitors and the Avenue Hotel embodies most aspects of the city. They know who their customers are, what their customers need and how to deliver that impeccably. For anyone looking for a place to stay with a warm, welcoming atmosphere, the Avenue Hotel is ideal, impeccable and faultless.
The Avenue Hotel can be found at Åboulevard 29, 1960 Frederiksberg C, Denmark. To book a room online visit here.
