(Scandic Falconer)

Thanks to new hotel openings, expansions and renovations, the Greater Copenhagen region is set to increase its hotel portfolio by 2,247 rooms, bringing the region’s total capacity to nearly 25,000 rooms, including hostels, apartments and suites. Here are a few worth noting.

  • In October 2018, Scandic Hotels is set to take over the Radisson Blu Falconer hotel in the central Frederiksberg district. Once the hotel changes hands, a renovation will add new rooms for a total capacity of 300. It will also change its name to Scandic Falconer.
  • The family owned Arp-Hansen Hotel Group is set to open its first hostel in the center of the city in the summer of 2017. The hostel will have 1,000 beds in 280 rooms. 
  • In the Tivoli Gardens amusement park, The Nimb Hotel is set to open 20 new suites by late 2017. The property was recently named “Hotel of the Year” by Small Luxury Hotels of the World.

  • The meetings and conference venue, Charlottehaven, is constructing a new 16-story tower that will have 37 hotel-style apartments. The new hotel is expected to be ready in late 2017.
  • In 2019, Danish economy hotel chain Cabinn will open a new hotel right next to the Tivoli Congress Center and around the corner from the Copenhagen main train station. The hotel Cabinn Copenhagen will have approximately 1,250 rooms, of which 1,000 will be traditional hotel spaces and the remaining 250 rooms will be "Cabinn Apartments" with kitchenettes.
  • In the opposite side of the city, the Hotel Cabinn Metro is adding 530 hotel apartments to its existing 710 rooms, and has an opening planned for late 2017. Hotel Cabinn Metro is located a few minutes from Copenhagen airport and Scandinavia’s largest convention space, the Bella Center.
