Sanders: A luxury boutique hotel to open in Copenhagen

In November 2017 the luxury boutique hotel, Sanders will launch in Copenhagen. Created by renowned ballet dancer, Alexander Kølpin has used his passion for the creative scene and storytelling to build up a home from home in Sanders. With an intimate 52 bedrooms, ranging from small to extra-large, Sanders is a space for both locals and guests of Copenhagen to meet, stay, eat, and relax.

Understated luxury echoing colonial travel

Built in a historical classical building across five floors and based just around the corner of The Royal Danish Theatre, Sanders will provide the ultimate in understated luxury and sensibility. 

The hotel will echo a feeling of colonial travel with bespoke interior such as broad beds, rattan ceilings, and woven rugs contributing a warm and rustic feel. Punctuating the space will be a handpicked collection of both local emerging and established artists, which further contribute to the local and authentic feel of Sanders.

“To me, creating Sanders wasn’t about creating a hotel - instead I wanted to create a space which is a home from home, where people can eat, meet and relax. I truly hope it becomes a space where creative people want to spend their time; where every need is catered for with care and
attention to detail,” says Alexander Kølpin, Hotelier of Sanders.

On the fifth floor, a stunning Conservatory will showcase Copenhagen’s night sky and with Sanders Kitchen and Tata Bar, Sanders offers fresh, organic produce to overnight and visiting guests.

Handpicked and carefully curated
Everything from the doorknobs to the buttons of the staff uniforms have been carefully handpicked.

London based studio Lind + Almond who specialise in interior design and architecture, are designing the hotel from the inside and out. The uniform brand OLDER Paris whose founders have collaborated with the fashion houses Alexander McQueen and Isabel Marant, are designing the bespoke service wear. Each uniform will be tailor made to fit the individual staff member at Sanders.

Together with OLDER Paris and Lind + Almond, Alexander Kølpin is designing the scene and story that unfolds in early 2017, when Sanders opens.

This will be Kølpin’s third property, adding to his two existing properties which have already enjoyed huge success and notoriety in Scandinavia – Helenekilde Badehotel and Tisvildeleje Strandhotel.
