Hotel d'Angleterre Copenhagen

A romantic fairytale getaway

For more than 265 years, Hotel d’Angleterre Copenhagen has led the way of luxury at Kongens Nytorv, the main square at the heart of the city. The historic landmark combines stately Victorian architecture with elegant Nordic design to bring together a mixture of old and new styles that's both timeless and contemporary. In 2013, the property went through an extensive renovation, preserving the dignity of the space but updating it with modern amenities.

Officially, the property launched in 1755, after a romantic love affair between a French servant and the daughter of the royal chef. The pair opened a restaurant, now Marchal, which is the crux of the hotel today.

When not enjoying one of the 92 rooms or 55 suites, take advantage of the spa, visit the champagne bar, use the marble-lined indoor pool and do a little shopping at d’Angleterre Creations.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The d’Angleterre Suites provide one of the most unusual stays, as each interior garnered inspiration from historic Danish authors and artists such as Hans Christian Andersen and Bertel Thorvaldsen. The suites feature a large, separate living room complete with two sofas, a desk, a dining room table and a roomy marble bathroom with a soaking tub.
  • Amazing Space d’Angleterre is the hotel's spa, where you can luxuriate in the soothing stone-lined steam room, take a dip in the vast indoor pool and book one of the many services. The spa offers facials based on the latest technology, sports massage, reflexology, dietary advice, nail and foot care, acupuncture and hairstyling.
  • Just minutes from the property find all sorts of must-visit spots, including Nyhavn, the 17th-century waterfront, canal and entertainment area; the Royal Theatre, the city’s oldest theater; Strøgetone, one of Europe's longest shopping streets; and Rosenborg Castle Gardens, the oldest park in Copenhagen.
  • Book the Royal Suite when for the biggest and most elegant space offered by the Copenhagen hotel. The beige-and-cream-colored space covers more than 1,600 square feet and features a balcony with a view of Kongens Nytorv, a master bedroom, a bathroom, a living room and a private dining room. Expect extra amenities, too, such as fresh fruit, handcrafted chocolate and a bottle of champagne.
  • Take advantage of the concierge team. Not only does it provide for guests inside the hotel, but can help even before arrival. Services include arranging for helicopter rides, reserving a table at popular restaurants, getting tickets to shows and helping check out one of the hotel's bikes for a fun romp around the city.

The Restaurants

  • Executive chef Jakob de Neergaard oversees French-Nordic restaurant Marchal. Establishing the eatery was part of the renovation, and since opening in 2013 it has catered to visitors with a lavish breakfast buffet, afternoon tea, lunch service and a dinner menu featuring dishes such as five kinds of caviar, venison with beetroot and blackberries, whole black lobster, and halibut with baby leeks and beurre blanc.
  • Marchal serves a chef's six-course tasting menu nightly. Wine pairings from the large collection of vintages can also be added on.
  • Balthazar Champagne Bar has vintages from more than 42 different champagne houses, making it one of the best places to go if you love bubbles. The setting is just as crisp as the drinks, mixing striking white marble with ebony velvet and stone. It's touted as the oldest and largest champagne bar in the city.
  • Another stop worth checking out is Maison, the on-property bakery overseen by pastry chef Freja Krarup. Here freshly baked cakes, pastries and beautiful delights line the shelves, perfect for a morning treat or to take while exploring Copenhagen. The bakery also creates lavish gift baskets you can bring home or send to a loved one.
