Named after its location at number 34, Sankt Peders Stræde, Hotel SP34 has replaced the cult Fox Hotel which is now closed. Eccentric artist-decorated rooms have given way to a sleek Danish looking design scheme, with muted colours and de-rigueur minimalism.
The rooms are simple, clean and elegant, but warm and cosy: this is a very Danish experience. They all have the same look and feel, with grey natural walls, vintage wooden furniture, polished concrete floors and white tiled bathrooms. The standard rooms are not very large, but with such cool public spaces downstairs, you may not hang out in your room that much. A plus, the hotel is brand new, so the rooms are all well equipped and comfortable.
A short stroll away from the center of Copenhagen and across a pretty park, Hotel SP34 is old bohemian neighbourhood with plenty of indie shops and cafes which popped up around the old campus of Copenhagen University. It’s walking distance from most major sites so very conveniently located overall.
What We Love
The communal areas with cosy couches, a fireplace and books everywhere. The cafe and the organic breakfast. Free wifi and happy hour at the bar for hotel guests.
Room to Improve
For a hotel that markets itself to the ‘bourgeois bohemians’ crowd, it can be relatively expensive. Sadly rates seem to be more ‘Bourgeois’ than ‘Bohemian’… Note that single rooms are very small and can be noisy. Staff are said to be friendly but we found management a little cold.
