For a classical heritage hotel experience in Copenhagen, stay at the 5-star d’Angleterre, an historic landmark hotel built in 1755, with a fairytale love story behind its founding. 263 years ago, a French servant named Jean Marchal fell in love with Marie Coppy, the daughter of the chef of the royal palace in Copenhagen. Their passion went beyond each other, and with her culinary talent and his penchant for serving the privileged, they started with a restaurant and later added a hotel located on Kongens Nytorv in the heart of Copenhagen.
The recently refurbished hotel inside the Victorian exterior has 37 rooms and 55 suites of contemporary simple Nordic design, all with spacious bathrooms, the latest technology and individually controlled climate systems.
Eating at the one Michelin-star Restaurant Marchal is a dining treat like none other. Visually beautiful and designed to create a dynamic environment for both guests and locals alike, the restaurant features a walk-in wine room, open display kitchen and cocktail bar. The food maintains the passion of the hotel’s original owners, where you can feel the love in each dish. The food is Nordic inspired with a French twist. Signature dishes include Lobster served two ways, Danish Beef served with carmelized shallots, Turbot steamed in champagne, and a Rosa Fried Duck Breast with Duck Jus. Check out the dinner menu here.
With an extensive selection of more than 160 champagnes from more than 42 different makers, as well as signature cocktails and wine, guests can indulge in sophisticated snacks from caviar to oysters, all complemented by Francophile décor and flirtatious tunes from DJs on weekends.
The new 400sqm spa features an expansive menu of signature treatments as well as wet areas, fully equipped fitness studio and an indoor swimming pool.
