Moorish Opulence meets Danish Design
What it is
A 17-room hideaway within the Tivoli Gardens.
What it isn't
Kiddie-tastic, despite the amusement park locale.
What we think
The 1909 marble Moorish building has brightly lit domes and minarets on its exterior—fittingly, given its location within the 19th-century fantasyland of Tivoli Gardens. But rather than a theme-park resort, inside the vibe is relaxed but decorous. Antique-stocked rooms (all but one of them overlooking the park) are studies in tasteful neutrals and chocolate hues, with pinewood floors and Øland granite. Local Geismar linens and birchwood-stocked fireplaces make them feel extra comfortable—much more homey than hotels usually do. Ask for the corner suite to listen to the summertime alfresco Tivoli Garden concerts in your bathrobe and slippers.
You're here because
You want to be immersed in Copenhagen’s lively spirit—symbolized by the park at its heart—but not at the sacrifice of stylish design and elegance.
It doesn’t get more hygge than making your own twist bread or marshmallows over the roaring fire in the garden at Gemyse, the on-site restaurant. But you’re really intrigued by the pastry shop, Cakenhagen, where every weekend, you can partake in a Cake-ekstravaganza...exactly as delicious as it sounds.
