The hotel Skt. Petri is located in the trendy Latin Quarter of Copenhagen. My fiancé and I stayed here between Christmas and New Year with friends.
The lobby of the hotel, which is affiliated to Design Hotels, hosts the reception, but also the bar. It was unfortunately only open until 12am when we stayed there, but offered a wide range of drinks and cocktails.
We slept in a standard room on the 7th floor with view over the rooftops of Copenhagen. It offered modern comfort in a minimalist Scandinavian-design setting. This style can be found throughout the whole hotel.
The breakfast buffet proposes a vast choice of cold cuts, cheese, vegetables, bread, jams, Danish pastries and (the best!) you can make yourself fresh waffles!
In the night the breakfast area called “central kitchen” transfers into a restaurant. I didn’t try it, because I had a few other restaurants on my lists (you’ll find out more in my next articles).
I can recommend the Skt. Petri hotel for your next stay in Copenhagen most certainly, because of the location! It was my second time in the city and I loved that I could go everywhere by foot (sightseeing, shopping, restaurants, etc.).
Also, the value for money of the hotel is great. We booked in advance and paid 170€ per night including breakfast (if you compare the prices also with 4 and 3 star hotels in Copenhagen you will see what I mean).
Nevertheless, during our stay I had the feeling that it is a stylish hotel grown old. Everything is missing “the little something” which is so important in today’s hotel industry.
The good news is, they are announcing a renovation already everywhere in the hotel. I hope it will be finished by the time I am next in Copenhagen, so I can go back to discover the new Skt. Petri!
My must-see and do in Copenhagen:
- The Round Tower (only 5 minutes walk from the hotel) offers a great view over the city
- Rosenborg Slot – charming castle in the city centre surrounded by beautiful gardens
- Nyhaven – the port with colourful houses
- The little mermaid inspired by the tale of Hans Christian Andersen
- Illum – a department store with all kinds of luxury fashion brands, but also local Danish designers
- Illums Bolighus – my absolute favourite! A department store with Danish interior design items on 3 floors.
