The d’Angleterre Legacy
Established in 1755, the 5 star hotel 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. Celebrated for its elegance, luxury and style, hotel d’Angleterre embodies the perfect balance between the stately Victorian architecture of the historic building and the graceful simplicity of contemporary Nordic design. 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.
Inspired by its rich heritage the hotel has recently undergone a complete refurbishment and has reopened as a revitalized grand palace. Balancing legacy and style with intuitive and tailored services, the d’Angleterre will complement the desires of today’s refined travelers as the best Copenhagen accommodation. At hotel d’Angleterre, the guest has the opportunity to dine at our Michelin-starred Restaurant Marchal, enjoy cocktails and champagne at Balthazar Champagne Bar, relax in the “Amazing Space” Spa and swimming pool and shop at d’Angleterre Creations.
In The Eye Of The Storm
For more than 265 years, the hotel d’Angleterre has been located on Kongens Nytorv in the heart of Copenhagen – Northern Europe’s coolest capital. We are just a minute walk from the center of Copenhagen – the colorful Nyhavn, the Royal Theatre, King’s Garden and Strøget – Europe’s longest shopping street.
It was at the d’Angleterre that the Danish politician and theologian; Ditlev Gothard Monrad presented his draft of the new constitution to the lawmakers of the day on the 5th of June 1849. The hotel has served as headquarters for German generals and officers during World War II as well as an asylum for war refugees on a number of occasions.
An Eternal Love Story
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 to 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.
Today, the owners and every member of staff affectionately carry on the tradition of passion for service that has earned the hotel its 5 star superior rating as the only hotel in Denmark, and we strive to be the leading hotel in Northern Europe.
