The foundation stone of the family-owned Arp-Hansen Hotel Group was laid in 1960 when master builder Alf Arp-Hansen purchased Gentofte hotel. He had originally intended to convert the hotel into flats, but as a Gentofte resident he supported the idea of preserving the hotel, which dates back to the 12 century, and instead he embarked on the comprehensive renovation of the old buildings.
Since then, the Arp-Hansen Hotel Group has built and rebuilt, as well as bought and sold several hotels, all centrally located at the most attractive addresses in Copenhagen. Eight of the hotels have been built in existing buildings, where the Arp-Hansen Hotel Group has gone to great pains to maintain the character and individuality of the buildings. As such, the hotels vary greatly in style, but one thing they all have in common is the fact that they focus on the experience of the individual guest in a building with history and atmosphere.
Copenhagen Island, which opened in 2006, is a stylish design gem, directly overlooking Copenhagen Harbour. Wakeup Copenhagen is a modern budget hotel, which is the first of its kind in the Arp-Hansen Hotel Group. The hotel opened in September 2009. Both hotels were designed and built by Kim Utzon.
1. July 2010 saw the opening of Tivoli Hotel, Copenhagen's first theme hotel. 396 rooms on Kalvebod Brygge, offering adventure for families and modern meeting facilities for business travellers. Integrated with Tivoli Hotel, we have builded Tivoli Congress Center, which can accommodate 4,000 guests. We look forward to welcoming you to Denmark's most beautiful conference facilities.
