SP34 Hotel Copenhagen


Located in the Latin Quarter (Latinerkvarteret in Danish), SP34 is my home away from home in Copenhagen. I’ve spent Christmas here in addition to other non-secular events.

First, the decor — clean, orderly, stylish, and painfully Danish — it’s a marvel of simplicity. Clean lines, plenty of wood, and room to breathe. It’s a hallmark of Danish design. They have a generous happy hour in the late afternoon which is worth taking advantage of (wine is expensive in Copenhagen). The lobby is alive with people socializing, but with enough cozy corners to disappear into. A reading room with an array of design and travel oriented books flanks the entrance. There have been nights where I was just happy to hang out in the hotel.

On site there are three restaurant spaces: Din Nye Ven, Cocks and Cows, and VÆKST. VÆKST is a farm-to-table feeling nordic restaurant, Cocks and Cows is essentially a burger joint, and Din Nye Ven is a drinking spot with a limited Scandinavian homestyle menu.

The situation of the SP34 is such that you are close to some great eating and drinking in the neighbourhood, and also to commercial shopping in Stroget. Torvehallerne is nearby and Norrebro is a short cycle away. The hotel has their own bikes for rent at a nominal daily charge.

SP34 is the perfect place to crash in Copenhagen.
