Radisson Sas Royal Hotel
This is one of the most exclusive designer hotels in the city. From the exterior façade through to the swan and egg chairs gracing the lobby, all designed by famous Danish architect, Arne Jacobsen. It’s a landmark of the Jet Age: it was Copenhagen's first major skyscraper showing off a breakthrough. Make sure to get room 606 well in advance. This ‘museum room’ is preserved exactly as it was when Arne completed the hotel. The lobby is open for the public, and when you’re there pay special attention to the staircase. The beautiful high-tech design, thin steps, steel suspension… ah, what a perfectionism. Jacobsen said: "Well, yes, they call it the punch card, and it’s funny, for that’s actually what it looks like when the windows are open on a hot summer’s day. It’s been called a lot of different things. And many people thought it was a terribly ugly building, and many may still think so. At least, it came in first when they held a competition for the ugliest building in Copenhagen."
