The Originals

Alessandro Catenacci

Set in a landmark building constructed in 1903—one of the first concrete structures in the city—Nobis Hotel Copenhagen faithfully restored its storied setting. Acclaimed Swedish architect Gert Wingårdh and his team paid homage to the building’s roots, preserving such details as the wood-and-marble staircase and original motifs. Today, the building is run on renewable energy provided by Danish power company Ørsted. In addition to its many initiatives, the hotel benefits from Copenhagen’s progressive environmental policies. Guests are encouraged to drink the local tap water, which the hotel conserves through efficient fixtures. The city is also easily explored on foot, via public transit, or by bike—the Nobis team is happy to help with bike rentals and offer suggested tours. Sourcing local produce and products is a top priority for the hotel’s NOI restaurant. By supporting regional producers, Nobis Hotel Copenhagen can offer top-quality, seasonal ingredients and minimize its footprint.

Learn about our Conscious Hotel Principles

We spoke to the team at Nobis Hotel Copenhagen to learn the latest on the hotel's conscious journey.


What is your sustainability philosophy?

Sustainability is constantly in our consciousness. We see sustainability as three important pillars: society, environment, and economy. These three pillars are always incorporated into our daily decisions and projects.


How do you forge a connection to the local community and cultural surroundings?

Nobis Hotel Copenhagen is housed in a historic landmark building that previously housed The Royal Danish Academy of Music. This cultural history is incorporated into our DNA and shared with the local community through public events. We also collaborate with local businesses to support our cultural surroundings.


What do you see as the biggest sustainability hurdle for hotels? How are you combating that?

The biggest sustainability obstacle depends on what kind of hotel you run. In our case, the renovation of a historical building has been the biggest obstacle. But at the same time, it has been an opportunity to sustain the history and architecture.
