Over the years, the most proficient exponents of Danish Design have left a lasting impression on one of the most remarkable hotels in the centre of Copenhagen. 

Hotel Alexandra's historic building in the very heart of Denmark's capital gives guests an opportunity to surround themselves with furniture classics created by the world famous Danish designers Arne Jacobsen, Ole Wanscher, Hans J. Wegner and Finn Juhl, each of whom has lent his name and design to a classic Danish design room.

The consistently furnished retro-inspired hotel has been painstakingly renovated and the 61 charming rooms at its disposal are all individually furnished with one or more pieces of classic furniture and Danish art. As a special homage to the famous designers 12 of the rooms have been furnished with their best works.

The hotel offers car and bicycle rental, concierges service and wellness facilities next door.

Hotel Alexandra represents the best of Danish hotel tradition. These traditions were created during the more than 100 years that the hotel has been established in this historical building located in the heart of Copenhagen. Originally, this classical building was built as fashionable apartments. In 1910, Käthe and Theodor Hansen took over the hotel. Since then, the hotel has been developed and is now an inviting heaven in the city. The hotel has its own unique atmosphere that unites proud old architectural and design traditions with modern facilities and convenience.

Although the hotel is a modern facility, you may still experience the old "Copenhagen Ambience" due to a considerate restoration. In this historic building you will find charming rooms with all the modern facilities as well as elegant and classic Danish furniture.

Furthermore, Hotel Alexandra has gained The Green Key. This is an environmental certificate awarded to hotels that pay special attention to the environment and to the health.
