According to the British newspaper, Evening Standard, a hotel in Copenhagen is among 20 new and unique hotels around the world due to open their doors next year.

Villa Copenhagen, previously the old central post office building in the Danish capital, was given a solid recommendation, particularly due to its proximity to Tivoli Gardens and the popular Meatpacking District.

“A member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, the hotel will offer a conscious approach to luxury with a focus on all things eco-friendly,” the Evening Standard wrote.

“Traditional Danish and international dining options will be available here and the space has been designed to promote wellbeing and sociability. They’ll be 390 rooms and suites in total. A new must-visit in the Danish capital.”
