The renowned Danish ballet dancer, Alexander Kølpin, has created Copenhagen’s first luxury boutique hotel – Sanders. The design is inspired by his personal experience and travels. He brings a refined aesthetic sensibility and ideology to the property which is deeply rooted in his creative history.

Nestled in the historic center on a quiet neighborhood street, directly behind the Royal Danish Theatre, the property was a former hotspot for the city’s cultural cognoscenti in the 1970-80’s. Today Alexander looks forward to continuing that legacy in an entirely new era.

Comprised of 54 luxurious rooms each are singular in their style and design. A variety of accommodations have been created to suit the needs of every guest. Single Coupé rooms are inspired from a bygone era of luxury train cabins where guests will find comfort and luxury within the intimate space. At the opposite end of the spectrum, Sanders Apartments offer the utmost in privacy and are generously spacious with separate lounge seating and open fireplaces.
