CPH hotel voted Denmark’s best

Copenhagen’s Avenue Hotel scoops up a number of awards, whilst Scandic plans new major hotel development

Copenhagen’s Avenue Hotel has topped the rankings as Denmark’s best hotel this year.

The boutique hotel, which is located on Åboulevarden in central Copenhagen, has scooped up a number of awards in recent months, such as ‘Best Small Hotel in Denmark’ at the International Hotel Awards, as well as ‘Luxury City Hotel’ at the World Luxury Hotel Awards.

Yet Philip Viscovich, the manager of Hotel Avenue, asserts that success did not come easy for the establishment – it is something they work extremely hard for.

“As one of Denmark’s smaller hotels, we strive every day to make an extraordinary effort for our guests, offering an idea-led experience that you might not find at any of the other hotels,” he said.

A customer favourite
While the establishment has always been popular among guests, Viscovich states he has a clear idea of what makes Avenue Hotel stand out from its competitors and qualify for its plethora of awards and distinctions.

“Avenue Hotel has a specific atmosphere, which we call ‘The Avenue Feeling’. It is a real mantra … providing a ‘little extra’ for the guest in everything we do.”

“It’s about being personal and authentic to give guests a different local experience,” Viscovich continued.

Avenue Hotel was established in 1972 and is housed in a classic 19th century building.

Denmark gets a new major hotel
The high season has historically been a pressing time for hotels in Copenhagen, and now it has been announced that Scandinavia’s largest hotel chain, Scandic, will invest in a new large hotel for Denmark’s capital city.

The new establishment will be located in the meatpacking district of Copenhagen’s trendy Vesterbro and include 370 rooms, allowing for up to 130,000 additional nights of tourism in Copenhagen each year.

“We expect the new hotel will be the second largest in terms of sales for Scandic in Denmark,” Scandic’s Jens Mathiesen told Borsen.

As well as increased sales revenue, Scandic’s newest development will also provide over 100 new jobs.

It is expected that the major development will cost a total of 610 million kroner.
