Whenever I travel, I relentlessly research the perfect hotel: I like to try to pass as a local, but I want to be close to the action, whether touristy or not. Nestled on a street lined with design shops and cafes, and a stone’s throw from both a public garden and the heart of Copenhagen, SP34 seems to be the perfect base for my next CPH visit. (The name SP34 is an abbreviation of the property's address: Sankt Peders Strade 34.) Part of the Brøchner Hotel Group, SP34 opened in April after undergoing extensive renovations—the site formerly operated as Hotel Fox and was overhauled by architect/designer Morten Hedegaard. The new interiors have a cozy feel that references midcentury designs while looking fresh, leather headrests included.

We like the fact that  Hedegaard detailed not only the beds but the armchairs with leather pillows. Above L: Table for two with blue metal legs. Above R: Design references abound: this chair frame is akin to the Hans Wegner rope chair; it's finished with woven black webbing, an Alvar Aalto trademark. Above: An amber-colored custom light from Swedish company RUBN fills the space with a golden glow.
