A few weeks ago Copenhagen got a new luxury boutique hotel. Welcome Sanders!
The man behind it is former ballet dancer Alexander Kølpin, and the wait for this place has been long. So long, that it was supposed to open last year. But the wait is over, and I jumped at the first chance I had, to try out their breakfast.
It was a chilly November morning, but my friend Sarah and I decided it was okay to sit outside anyway. A few blankets and lots of coffees kept us warm.
The menu is simple but thought out well; just what you need and nothing more. We tried out the breakfast frittata with eggplant and tallegio, the oatmeal with caramelized pear and yoghurt + freshly squeezed grape juice. Next time I’m coming for the pancakes.
When it was too cold to sit out, we headed into the lobby area. Calling it a lobby doesn’t do it justice, because even if that’s where you check in to the hotel, it feels more like a (really nice) living room. Beautiful chairs and deep couches, lots of pictures on the walls, pretty flowers and the best thing: a fireplace.
It’s a place where you want to hang out for hours, and that’s exactly what we did. Too bad we had other weekend errands, otherwise we would have continued into the bar. Guess we’ll have to plan smarter next time.
Sanders also has an outdoor terrace, with plans to cover it up, so it can be used during the colder months.
