Hotel Alexandra

By Hollie Wicks

We know life can be tough. Sometimes all you want to do is pack up your things and take a long vacation. Well, what’s stopping you? We’ve hunted high and low for the crème de la crème of eco-friendly hotels across the globe…

Hotel Alexandra, Copenhagen
Hotel Alexandra is situated in the heart of Copenhagen by the bustling Town Hall Square and the pretty Tivoli Gardens. Although the hotel is a modern one, you will still be able to experience the old Copenhagen ambience due to the careful restoration of the building. Originally the hotel was a classical building full of fashionable apartments, however in the early 1900s it was developed into a hotel. This stunning building is an inviting haven hidden amongst the city centre.

There are 61 elegant rooms (including 11 retro design rooms – you’ll have to book to see the quirky designs!) Each room is supplied with modern facilities inside the historical building. Hotel Alexandra has also been awarded a Green Key, after successfully paying special attention to looking out for Mother Nature.

You can even find tranquillity and relaxation away from the city in the Mirage Spa and get a rejuvenating treatment or two. Surrounding the hotel are flea markets, museums and retro shops to visit so you’re sure to have a trip to remember.

Check out this amazing building for yourself now…

/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
