The Avenue Hotel Copenhagen is a real little hideaway in the cosmopolitan district of Frederiksberg set amongst independent boutiques , designer shops and of course a trendy tattoo parlor.
Creating a truly “home away from home” is an almost impossible task and a term that generally makes you wanna cringe – HOWEVER, this place comes close with the amazing sense of tranquility – a mellow soft bolt-hole in the progressive Frederiksberg district. A proud period building nestled between the regular popup galleries, the indie fashion stores and the numerous eateries is the Avenue – thankfully away from the touristy traps of central town, yet just a short tram ride away.
The place offers a slice of the design savvy Copenhagen we all know and love, combined with personal touches of the passionate owner Mai – who shapes the mood and gives it a neighbourhood touch.
Classical, even quirky elements – like the original elevator, sit at ease with the more designer pieces from Bestlite + Missoni, localised by the abundant local photography.
We feel the hotel will continue to grow and develop just as our own homes do – collecting and adding bits n bobs that make a place a true nest to relax in.
