has opened a new lively hotel in the capital of Denmark. Located in central Copenhagen, Scandic Spectrum features 632 rooms, a spacious wellness area, two restaurants, a rooftop bar and large event spaces. Located on the waterfront in central Copenhagen, Scandic Spectrum is Scandic’s 30th Danish hotel. It offers modern facilities with a Nordic touch as well as sustainable culinary experiences in two restaurants and a topnotch spa in the large Nordic wellness area.
"As the name implies, Scandic Spectrum offers a wide variety of experiences. Our vision is to be a dynamic and welcoming hotel both inside and out. I’m extremely proud today to be opening this fantastic hotel with my 130-strong team. We can’t wait to welcome guests and locals to stay or just hang out with us and perhaps spend the day in our spa, sip a craft cocktail on the rooftop terrace or meet friends for a social dining experience," said Kirsten Glente Grindsted, General Manager at Scandic Spectrum.
Scandic Spectrum was designed by Dissing + Weitling
, with Space Copenhagen responsible for the interiors inspired by the Nordic lifestyle and reference both nature and the historic industrial harbor nearby. This is evident in the choice of materials such as glass, concrete and steel while the natural beauty of the Nordics is present in the use of stone, wood and a muted palette and not least on the rooftop terrace and in two lush courtyards on the ground floor.
Sustainability is an integral part of Scandic Spectrum's DNA and the hotel is certified according to the Nordic Swan Ecolabel’s tough new requirements that include a special focus on climate impact. In practice, this means that Scandic Spectrum will focus on reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions, increase the use of ecolabeled cleaning products and serve more environmentally friendly food while reducing food waste. Sustainability also plays an important role at the hotel’s two restaurants, Ansvar and Nordbo, both of which focus on high quality organic ingredients from local suppliers.
"As the largest hotel operator in the Nordics and based on many years’ experience running hotels, we see great potential in this new and different hotel. The hotel offers a wide range of experiences whether you’re on a weekend getaway in Copenhagen, looking for a unique conference venue or just want to enjoy our spa facilities or a social happening," commented Soren Faerber, Head of Scandic Denmark.
