Greater Copenhagen region to increase its hotel capacity 2021

Posted by: sueturner

Due to new hotel openings and expansions, the Greater Copenhagen region will increase its hotel capacity to close to 52,000 rooms in 2021 from 46,000 rooms in 2017. This includes hostels, hotels and boutique hotels.



Here's four to watch out for.

Airport Hotel Upgrade
Copenhagen Airport A/S has teamed up with Scandinavian hotel operator Nordic Choice Hotels and recently opened the Clarion Hotel Copenhagen Airport, which is Nordic Choice Hotels' high-end brand. The 378 room hotel features a large 3,000m2 conference centre, which will help attract new conferences, congresses and international events to the city.

Scandic Expansions
The Nordic hotel chain Scandic will increase its extensive portfolio with two new four-star hotels, Scandic Kødbyen and Scandic Falconer. Scandic Kødbyen will be located in the popular Meatpacking District with 370 rooms, while Scandic Falconer will open in the fashionable neighbourhood of Frederiksberg with 330 rooms and a conference centre that can accommodate events for up to 3,000 people.

In the Heart of Town
The city centre will see an exciting range of brand new five-star hotels when Hotel Herman K, Hotel Sander's, Nobis Hotel Copenhagen and Hotel Post Nord start operating in the years to come. Wakeup Copenhagen will supplement the high-end options with another two-star hotel offering 585 rooms next year.

Hostels for the Budget Traveller
The Danish family owned Arp-Hansen Hotel Group will open its first hostel in the city centre in the summer of 2017. The hostel will hold 1,000 beds and 280 rooms, all with showers and toilets. Due to the new hostel's large size, it meets the needs of conferences with large groups of people, who wish to stay in central Copenhagen on a budget. The German A&O Hotels and Hostels Group is also coming to town when they open their first hostel in Copenhagen, in the buzzing area of Nørrebro with 270 rooms this spring.
