With a history as the Central Post & Telegraph Head Office from 1912, Villa Copenhagen is a new social scene in the capital city of Denmark. The past, present, and future can be gathered in an inspiring and playful atmosphere. The hotel offers 390 guest rooms and suites, restaurants and bars, a gym and relaxation area, and conference and event rooms with up to 1 200 people in the largest one.
As part of Nordic Hotels & Resorts, Villa Copenhagen is currently top-of-the-line within Petter Stordalen’s empire.
By honouring the ethos of charming old Europe expressed in Danish architectural heritage and a modern and vibrant environment, visitors, locals and international guests are promised an experience for all the senses.
Villa Copenhagen gathers people as an international hub for meetings and events in the heart of Copenhagen. With room for 1,200 people, Square, with its large walls of old boulders and the adjoining eight studios, gives a sense of history and significance when arranging everything from significant events, conferences to more intimate meetings. Square, The Boardroom and Playroom are just some of the hotel’s event facilities, and each venue has its feel and atmosphere.
When you enter through the doors of the Courtyard, which is supposed to be a social hub and multi-functional place, it’s like entering a lounge for the Orient Express. The bar is discreet on one side, and there are inviting doors leading into restaurants and meeting rooms.
The hotel differs from its competitors as its focus is on the environment and sustainability. The UN’s sustainable development goals play a role in the environmental strategy. Villa Copenhagen takes responsibility for its ecological footprint, and its meeting and event facilities are no exception.
Together with Mater, a Danish pioneer in sustainable furniture design and production, they have picked up 2.2 tonnes of plastic marine waste and turned it into 800 conference chairs.
Collaborating with Mater and choosing a carefully produced design for Villa Copenhagen’s chairs has minimised the carbon footprint by more than 3.7 tonnes of carbon dioxide and supported their shared goal of helping the UN’s goal of responsible consumption and production.
Great emphasis is placed on hiring employees with different backgrounds, investing in CSR work in local communities, and from the food in the restaurant to the interior, always thinking about the hotel’s impact on the planet.
The classic hotel bar called T37, named after Tietgensgade and the old street number has a door to the street. It was here that the inhabitants of the city went in to arrange for their letters and parcels.
From the ceiling hangs straps from the old mailbags as a greeting to the city’s former postmen and their bags.
