Hotel Sanders

International-class boutique hotel takes you to another world

Like stepping on a theater stage

When you step into the luxurious but homely Hotel Sanders, it’s like stepping onto a theater stage. The play takes place in the cultural heyday of the 1920s with jazz music, literature, freedom and cocktails, and the spaces exude atmosphere and storytelling.


Upgrading of existing hotel

It is the former ballet dancer Alexander Kølpin who, together with his father, has chosen to run a hotel on a cozy street behind his old workplace – The Royal Theater. The hotel is housed in a building that once housed the Hotel Opera. In the conversion process, 92 rooms became 54 rooms / suites, and meeting rooms for conferences were established, a new restaurant with outdoor seating and a roof terrace on the top floor.


Unique design solutions

AI Arkitekter & Ingeniører has been a total consultant on the project. The major conversion has required a great deal of construction work, and it has been necessary to establish new guideways for all installations. There has been a great focus on creating the total staging with completed, luxurious interiors with exclusive materials, and it has required a close collaboration between AI and the design company Lind + Almond to get standardized conditions adapted to the many unique design solutions.
