Billed as Copenhagen's first luxury boutique hotel, Sanders captures the essence of the past adopting a theatrical prose mixed with the flair of Paris, eccentricity of England and Danish design cool. The hotel Sanders of is all about modern townhouse vibe, luxury without the fuss and a clever design narrative.
Already flagged as the new mingling hub of Copenhagen’s cultural scene, expect plush boutique salons decked in lavish crushed velvets and rare Murano chandeliers, beautifully handsome rooms & suites, bespoke furnishings, and commissioned artworks by the talented Lydia Cowpertwait of Dais Contemporary create the scene of visual eye candy.
Eating at Sanders is an informal affair with a crisp street-side eatery with a cute walled garden, and opposite is the draped lounge bar TATA - which faces the stage doors of the Theatre across the street. The crowning glory is a fabulously creative rooftop conservatory that is set to become the town’s social magnet for those in the know.
The DNA of curated design headlines Sanders' creative mood boards with subtle panache, evoking luxurious atmospheric scenography. The London based design studio LIND + ALMOND, in drawing on the owner’s own artistic pedigree, have captured the essence of his wondrous character, instilling throughout the choreographed scene an essence of muted luxury that resonates as both imaginative and authentic.
The founding duo, Pernille Lind and Richy Almond, are no strangers in creating ambitious landmarks for both lifestyle and hospitality concepts, working for some of the most iconic architecture and design bureaux - Anouska Hempel Design, Dixon Jones Architects, Soho House and Conran + Partners. As such, the interiors master the art of intimacy: each turn of the corner reveals a scene cleverly created just for that space and that moment, making for an altogether inquisitive passage through the hotel’s quiet splendour.
The bedroom design of the Sanders has been pleasingly determined by the building, a bespoke mantra in furnishings that makes each of the seven hotel categories feel utterly distinctive.
Handsomely decked in subtle heritage tones, expect deep comfort paired with that enviable eye for design that narrates the soft urban look of luxury and authenticity.
Dining at Sanders is a deliberately casual affair of total deliciousness. Opting for a more convivial menu of deli heritage, you can grab a light bite as much as a hearty twist on Copenhagen’s classic table stars.
This is the place to be from breakfast till post-theatre plates – bag yourself a cosy window seat, join fellow guests around the long table or head back to the oasis courtyard garden.
The curb-side bar Tata is embellished in intimate velvet elegance and courts both the creative scene as well as the performers of close-by Royal Theatre for a little post show rendezvous.
The Rooftop Conservatory is an architectural triumph in luxury design pitched overlooking the rooftops of Copenhagen. This vernacular void of glass and bare red bricks borrows SoHo coolness with lofty elegance, and gives Copenhagen the clubhouse hotel allure it so deservedly craved.
This is the place to be seen or to be totally incognito – a place to lounge, chill or mingle.
Alexander Kølpin is no stranger to being centre stage, what with his personally curated hotel about to seize the luxury reins of the boutique hotel landscape of Copenhagen, aptly next to the Royal Danish Theatre.
Trained at the Royal Danish Ballet, Kølpin went on to become Principal Dancer and captivated audiences throughout the world, a globetrotting trait that comes to good use today.
His worldly aptitude, creative demure, scenographic genius and excitability about people make him a hospitality natural.
Located close to the impressive Kings’s New Square (Kongen’s Nytorv) and picturesque Nyhavn, Sanders is situated at the axis of cultural heritage and the royal alchemy of Copenhagen, with notable neighbours as: The Royal Danish Theatre, The Opera House, Charlottenborg Palace (Kunsthal Charlottenborg) and Amalienborg Palace – museum and present Royal residence.
