Located in the trendy Latin Quarter or Copenhagen, Hotel SP34 is a traveller’s dream come true. Whether you travel for pleasure or business, this brand new (opened in April 2014) boutique hotel is within 20 minutes of Copenhagen airport and a short walk to many of the city’s most popular tourist attractions, so should be top of your list when planning a visit to Copenhagen.
From the moment I entered the impressive lobby area with its quirky seating arrangements I was already taken aback by the laid back ‘coolness’ of the hotel. Exuding the laid back vibe of a cool kid who isn’t aware of how much they are coveted by their peers, Hotel SP34 not only fits in with its cool, bohemian neighbours on Skt Pederstrade, it stands out as a beacon of style and sophistication.
When I arrived at the hotel, the room wasn’t ready so I sat in the lobby with my daughter, who soon made use of what must be the fastest complimentary WiFi we’ve experienced. We also took the opportunity to have an early lunch in the burger bar, Cock’s and Cows within the hotel which was both filling and reasonably priced. Having been voted Copenhagen’s best burger twice in the past three years, I can definitely understand why this newbie to the food circuit has reached such high acclaim in such a relatively short time. It was too cold to make use of the rooftop terrace but I did grab drinks from one of the 4 bars hidden within the town house hotel. We watched the suave cyclists go past and admired the Copenhagen pace of life whilst business guests carried out informal meetings just a few feet away within the lobby area.
The room itself, was beautifully decorated in a simplistic yet luxurious taste. The seating area and table became invaluable for our exploration planning during our stay and the waterfall shower made a more than worthy substitute for my six year old, who managed to take three very long showers within the day we spent there.
The staff were all incredibly helpful, advising on places to eat and giving us directions. My daughter made a point of seeking one particular lady out before we left, so she could say goodbye, as she was so touched by her friendliness. I think that in itself is a sign of how idyllic and child friendly our stay at hotel SP34 was.
Would we stay again? Yes, most certainly. As a four star hotel in a favourable location, nightly rates are far from a budget stay but as our second night in a more budget friendly hotel soon proved, you get what you pay for. The level of comfort we felt during our stay couldn’t be replicated elsewhere, nor could the beautiful room interiors.
One night in SP34 is costs around £210 and comes with complimentary organic breakfast buffet and a complimentary glass of wine during the Brochner wine hour (5-6pm)
