SP34

A delightful Danish den that comes alive at happy hour.

Absolute Highlight

Sipping my complimentary glass of red wine at happy hour while listening to the DJ drop some oldschool Motown remixes.

In a nutshell

No. of rooms
118
The design aesthetic is...
quintessentially Danish.
The typical guest is...
design-loving international travellers
The sustainability features (ie. plastic free, recycling, green wall, garden) are...
a priority, they even say so on the key cards.
The location is...
wonderful, the center of the city a short walk in one direction, the trendy neighbourhood, Vesterbro, a short walk in the opposite direction.
Interaction is encouraged by....
Wine Hour which means a free glass of wine for every guest from 5-6pm every day. And all the communal spaces and restaurants in the lobby really do help to bring people together too..
You should stay here because
did I mention free wine?
What took you there?

Extending a work trip to Copenhagen…  It is one of my favourite cities so I’ll find any excuse to spend as much time as possible there.

What was your room like?

I opted for the Standard Double room, though it was far more spacious than I expected, sporting a nice view of the courtyard to drink in that midnight sun. I loved the signature Nordic aesthetic – the timber details, the curved timber bedhead and the individual blankets (a trend I’m waiting for the rest of the world to catch onto).

What about the venue

SP34 is part of a collection of hotels owned by Brochner Hotels. So, although it operates as an independent hotel, it has the professionalism and benefits (aka discounted happy hour drinks at all other venues) of a large hotel. Personally, I saw no reason to leave. As it poured with rain outside, I happily parked up in the small but function lobby fit with a fireplace, comfy couches,  a library nook, a bar serving coffee, and plenty of desks for other travellers who were also escaping the rain. As the afternoon went on the space transformed into a lively bar when the 5 pm drinks started while the DJ played some old school Motown remixes.

 

Tell us about the destination

SP34 sits within a quaint corner of Copenhagen filled with a patchwork of colourful old buildings, cobblestones streets and cosy cafes. It is only a 10-minute work from the touristy centre of the city, and the same distance from the hip neighbourhood Vesterbro.

Who did you meet there?

Two couples from London who were celebrating one of their birthdays and a young Japanese couple obsessed with Danish design.
