Inside Hotel D’Angleterre’s historic and magical outpost in Copenhagen

Inspired by its rich heritage, the hotel has recently undergone a complete refurbishment and has reopened as a revitalized grand palace. Share

Established in 1755, the d’Angleterre is an icon and a historic landmark in Copenhagen and Denmark and it is rated as one of the best hotels in Copenhagen and indeed Northern Europe.

The end result is a uniquely elegant combination of rich materials, surfaces, shapes and tones. There are plenty of five-star hotels out there, but none with quite the same spirit as d’Angleterre—and it is this that guests should see, sense and experience the moment they step inside the hotel’s front doors. Balancing legacy and style with intuitive and tailored services, the d’Angleterre will complement the desires of today’s refined travellers as the best Copenhagen accommodation.

The d’Angleterre, one of the top 10 hotels in Copenhagen, is the result of a love affair between two young people. In the middle of the 1700’s Jean Marchal, a French servant, and Maria Coppy, daughter of the royal chef, fell in love. Maria was known for her cooking talent and Jean knew everything about serving the privileged. Together Mr and Mrs Marchal established a restaurant on Kongens Nytorv in 1755. This is where the d’Angleterre story begins.

The founder, Jean Marchal and his successors’ talent and sense for providing exceptional service, hospitality and comfort has carried the identity of the d’Angleterre throughout more than 260 years. This tradition is the foundation of the d’Angleterre legacy.
