Nobis Hotel Copenhagen
What it is
A food-obsessed hideaway in a 1903 grande dame, with all the elements of hygge— including a hammam.
What it isn't
Merely beautiful. You expect Nordic hotels to be stunning, but this one is next-level, thanks to design by Swedish starchitect Gert Wingardh (note the chevron floors and bathrooms lined in Bardiglio Italian marble).
What we think
Foodies often gripe about their hotel restaurants—too overly salted, too bland, too...too. They won’t have one complaint here. At Nobis, the restaurant NOI is helmed by Chef de Cuisines Fredrik Sandberg, where dishes include gooseberry and cured egg yolk tartare with onion mayo. At the Marble Bar, cocktails are king; you want A Wasp & The Fig (fig-infused rum, vermouth, and mint and fig powder). No matter what you get into, your home away from home upstairs is a doozy: each room done in blonde woods, custom steel headboards and Byredo toiletries you’ll want to steal—until your next stay here, that is.
You're here because
If you’re being honest, you came because the hotel has a pool and a hot stone marble for chillaxing on in the hammam. Frankly, it’s not a vacation without a spa!
You spent the day peddling one of the hotel’s red loaner bikes through town, and now you’re officially spent (much like your last paycheck). So you were more than thrilled to take a seat at the bar at NOI, where the lowly bar menu has been elevated to something transcendent. Chilled, you ask for the pate on toasted brioche with cherry gel, and add on a seared salmon with chimichurri. It’s like you always say: when in Denmark, go for the divine.
Restaurants & Bars
NOI - Boasting a menu with influences from all over Europe
The Marble Bar - Cocktails with a Scandinavian influence
Honestly? The most perfect location in Copenhagen, slung between Tivoli Gardens and the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek museum—horde of art-aficionado (and heir to the Carlsberg Breweries fortune), built in 1888.
