We landed in Copenhagen at about 7am. From there, we took the train to the Copenhagen Central Station and our hotel was a five-minute walk from there. We checked into the five-star Radisson Blu Royal Hotel.
The Radisson Blu Royal Hotel is one of the city’s premiere design hotels (they call it the world’s first designer hotel), designed by the famed architect Arne Jacbosen. It’s a Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) hotel; they built it in the ’60s after deciding it only made sense that the airline offer premium accommodations to travelers, particularly those who had just completed a transatlantic flight from North America to Europe.
Today, the hotel looks much the same as it did back then, making it a historic look at iconic 60s design. Everywhere throughout the hotel you’ll find the ‘Egg’ chairs and ‘Swan’ chairs, made famous the world over by Fritz Hansen and Arne Jacobsen.
The hotel has a real retro feel; design aficionados are sure to love it. Its a throwback to an era gone by and is rich with history and an emerging sense of creative genius that came to shape the future of design. Take a closer look at the hotel’s design below:
