Imperial Hotel

Welcome to Imperial Hotel

In the 1950s, Danish architects, designers and cabinet-makers had their most glorious days. This decade, lots of iconic design found their way to the homes and hearts of the Danes – and now, we are witnessing that trend again. The retro phenomena have returned since they express a special interest in – and longing for – the past that has shaped our society.

Imperial Hotel was built in 1958. Today, it rises like a completely renovated, classical design hotel. Not ‘just’ because it represents an important decade, but also because it frames an international meeting place. A place where we can breathe new life into a design expression that makes an impression. We do that with the help of ‘members’ of the Danish design élite and their retro design, since its characteristics gives us a language of common tongues. Through Danish design, we can tell people across borders and languages about our cultural heritage, lifestyle and self-perception. Maybe better than we can tell by words.

A tribute to Danish retro-design

The retro design shows that the past and presence can exist at the same time. The retro style adds, in other words, life and storytelling to the contemporary home – and therefore also to our 4-star hotel. In here, you can ‘meet’ recognized Danish designers like Verner Panton, Fritz Hansen and Morten Engelbrecht.

In our lobby, you also find custom-designed chairs in a 1950s style and our fireplace room hides bookcases with the cubic – and iconic – GRID system… which together with the deep green plants, brass figures and, in the winter half-year, a lighted fire invite cosy talks and reading. All interior is framed by wooden panels, incandescent lights, and orange and purple colours.

The retro phenomena are not only popular in Denmark, but also globally. The award winning TV series ‘Mad Men’ is a sure sign of that. The series has given us, on the other side of the screen, something to gather around – even though we are spread around the world. Since Imperial Hotel has international appeal, we have been inspired by the ‘Mad Men’ series throughout an entire floor and in selected Executive Rooms… which maybe will make you and other guests think of tweed suits, backcombing and crystal decanters. /p>

Enjoy your breakfast in the ‘company’ of Danish celebrities

The heart of the hotel used to frame the palm court Imperial Garden. In the days gone by, the court was a meeting place for the middle classes and celebrities in Copenhagen. Therefore, people like Simon Spies, the founder of the international charter airline Spies Rejser, has enjoyed gravlax, short loin and fine wines in the former palm court.

Today, the glass-framed room hides our morning restaurant. In here, you can also enjoy a varied breakfast buffet of both cold and warm dishes, including fresh-baked bread, cold meats, cheese and jams, eggs and bacon, yoghurt, fresh and dried fruits… and buttery Danish pastries for the last mouthful.

Arrange your meeting and conferences in a retro atmosphere

Furniture and design from the middle of the twentieth century were a symbol of optimism, growth and consumption – and therefore created favourable conditions for businesspeople, strategic decisions, and creative thinking. We were for instance reminded by that in the successful series ‘Mad Men’. Therefore, we also believe that the retro vibe at our design hotel create the ideal frames for profitable meetings and conferences.

Imperial Hotel has six meeting rooms that can accommodate up to 200 people. In here, you and your guests get comfortably through the day, since all rooms offer the newest audio-visual equipment, air-cooling and plenty inflows of light. We gladly help you to choose the ideal meeting package or customize the content for your purpose and schedule. If you need a place for preparation, find peace to work, or arrange an informal meeting, you are more than welcome to use our business lounge.

The taste of crafts and traditions

Do you consider traditions, experience and professional pride as a quality stamp? So do we. As a classical design hotel, we applause everyone with craftsman skills. Also in the kitchen. Therefore, we are naturally fascinated by the Italian cuisine and its food culture which has been passed on from generation to generation for centuries. The Italians know how to grow and handle ingredients that are full of flavour – you know, ingredients that find their way to dishes that are both simple and world-known. Pizza, pasta and the airy coffee dessert tiramisu are few of many examples.

You can taste them all in the hotel restaurant Ristorante L’Appetito. In here, ‘Chef di Cucina’ Pino and his team from Italy put on the chef’s whites and cook everything from insalate and pizza to dolci – exactly like the food traditions prescribe. Buon appetito!
