The NH Collection Copenhagen sits in a beautiful location next to the harbor in the heart of Copenhagen. The building was designed by modernist architect Palle Suenson in the 1950s and was initially built as the headquarters of B&W. Today, this listed building still reflects the best architectural styles of this period of modernism, including pure forms, straight lines and flat roofs.
The hotel brings together premium facilities, inspiring design and personalized service. During your stay, you can work out at the gym, enjoy the vibrant atmosphere at the bar or relax with a cocktail on the quay side as you watch the boats float in the harbor. Plus, although the hotel has been adjusted to reflect the needs of the modern traveler, the building still celebrates its past. You’ll find references to the old shipbuilding yard throughout, such as the statement piece of art from local artist Anna Bak at the entrance.
The location of the NH Collection Copenhagen means it’s easy to explore this beautiful city. The vibrant city life of Christianshavn is on the doorstep and both the Opera, Royal Library and Nyhavn are within walking distance of the hotel’s front door.

NH COLLECTION COPENHAGEN
- THE GOLD-CERTIFIED SUSTAINABLE HOTEL
With respect for this iconic building’s character and distinctiveness, it has undergone a vast renovation process from 2018 to 2021 and has since September 1st 2021 housed NH Collection Copenhagen.
Let us tell you the story of an old building transformed into a sustainable gold-certified 5-star hotel in the heart of Copenhagen.
The property was built in the years 1957-1962 by architect Palle Suenson as the headquarters and administration building for the shipyard B&W. The comparative architecture was typical of the period when modernism drew the pure forms, straight lines, and flat roofs. During the renovation period, new building materials were also added, such as steel, concrete, and glass.
When ATP Ejendomme, who owns the building, in 2018 received an approval from the Municipalities of Copenhagen to renovate and rebuild what today is NH Collection Copenhagen, the desire was to create a more open and transparent expression as well as more audience-facing functions. This was done, among other things, with a transparent extension at the top of the property's concrete base, at the same time as the ground floor towards Torvegade was expanded.
THE DGNB GOLD CERTIFICATION
From the beginning of the renovation, it was decided to get the DGNB-certification. Along the way, the ambitions were upgraded, and the aim was raised from a DGNB Silver certification to a DGNB Gold certification as one of the first renovation projects in Denmark.
This means that the renovation has a holistic view of sustainability, and that the property has social, economic, environmental and technical qualities that are significantly above the requirements of the Danish building regulations.
Green plant roofs: a total of 3,428 sqm of green sedum roofs are now spread over most of the roof area.
Recycling of concrete: all concrete that was taken out of the building during the renovation, has been made into new exterior tiles placed on the lower part of the façade. These tiles have the same expression as the original tiles, which ensures the buildings original design is considered in the new use of the property.
Certified wood for recycling: a lot of wood has been used to create the perfect surroundings for guests at the hotel. It is made sure that all wood is recycled.
Seawater cooling: seawater is used in the property's cooling system.
Intelligent control of light and indoor climate: Lights will turn on and off automatically when nobody has been moving in the rooms for a while. Additionally, all cooling and heating will stop if guests open the windows, so no unnecessary energy will be wasted.
Integrated art: An homage to this iconic building takes the form of a unique and site-specific artwork integrated into the hotel’s entrance. Danish visual artist Anna Bak was chosen to develop this work and has created an art piece telling the building’s great maritime history. Her work both matches the hotel’s aesthetic and is part of the significant sustainability effort.
Accessibility for local residents and tourists: The conversion of the building also includes a newly built staircase from Knippelsbro, which creates a new and direct connection to the harbor promenade and the hotel's publicly accessible restaurant, café and bar by the quayside. Here, both Copenhageners and tourists in the future can enjoy a bite to eat and a glass of wine with a view of Copenhagen and the harbor.
