  • The hotel will complete the new square, Under Krystallen at Kalvebod Brygge, when it opens as the hotel chain’s largest hotel in Copenhagen in the autumn of 2021.

    Scandic Spectrum opens up towards the square and generates a lively atmosphere, with restaurants, cafés and a coffee roaster on the ground floor. At the same time, the architecture of the hotel enters into a dialogue with the Glyptotek district, as the sloping roofs and composition of the floor plan reflect the old block buildings, and the glass facade forms a transition to the neighbourhood’s newer architecture.

  • Green initiatives

    The facade acts as a green initiative, ensuring a healthy indoor climate with good inflow of light for hotel guests. Along with the solar panels on the roof, the active double facade reduces the operating costs of the building.

    The hotel has seven floors and 632 rooms spread over 31,000 m² above ground and 11,500 m² basement parking. The hotel also has a spa and pool area, a sky bar with outdoor roof terrace, a fitness centre as well as meeting and conference facilities.
