Experience Copenhagen the Brøchners way!

Experience Copenhagen the Brøchners way!

99 % Unique Hotel Experience guaranteed

The Brøchner hotels have thrown all the “boutique hotel” principles over board and re-imagined the concept of a hotel stay. Placed in the best areas of Copenhagen each hotel has its own unique location in a buzzing neighborhood with exciting restaurants, local bars, boutiques and main attractions close by.

The heart and soul of our hotels are always going to be the building it is situated in. Every brick has a story to tell. Those stories are captured in the design of the hotel itself – always with a special touch of creativity and innovative features.

However, the real magic happens in the atmosphere of our hotels. When you walk through the door a very special experience awaits you. Is this really a reception? Is it a lobby or a bar? Well, it is all three in one! Brøchners have created a lobby – that isn’t. It is a cool social area with a pinch of “international vibe” and a dash of cozy atmosphere that make you want to stay in. And that is exactly how we want you to feel – like it was your home.

Otherwise, you could just stay at an ordinary hotel. But that’s not what you’re doing when staying with us.

Oh and Brøchners are particularly delighted to be able to serve some hand-picked goodies that you can always find at our hotels. With time, they have all grown to be what we in term call the signatures of a Brøchner hotel. Here are two of our favorites:


Good Morning! It’s Organic
A good day doesn’t have to start with their Good morning. It’s Organic! breakfast – but it usually does!
At all the hotels they serve an entire buffet of healthy breakfast – and when they call it organic, they mean it – over 90% of the breakfast is organic. You will always find freshly baked bread, breakfast cereal, seasonal fruits, fresh juices, smoothies and much more. You really want to try it for yourself!

Are you ready for Wine Hour?
How about a glass of wine (or two) on the house from 17-18 every day? This is something you want to remember. At all Brøchner hotels the guests are offered a glass of red, white or port wine every day for all guests, when they host the signature Wine Hour. There’s also something else worth knowing: you can enjoy Wine Hour at all Brochner hotels – it does not have to be the hotel you are staying at. We think that is quite brilliant! Each hotels have their own unique atmosphere, so why not discover them all?

1K Paris

1K Paris

This 4 star ‘destination hotel’ offers visitors to Paris an unconventional yet lively base to explore the boutiques and nightlife of the Marais, Canal Saint Martin and Oberkampf. With tasty Peruvian-French fusion cuisine; large spacious bedrooms and an assortment of bars to choose from, this hotel is a real gem awaiting discovery. Make sure you sample the delightful cocktails in one of its many South American themed bars!


What strikes you first is the impressive ‘ethno-contemporary‘ look and feel of this establishment, with its modern look mixed with Inca-style touches. Outside, you can relax on a striking terrace clad with orange chairs and matching electric blue window blinds on the Haussmannian facade . Two resident lizards, Machu and Pichu can be found safely housed in a vivarium, while Peruvian masks and Inka motifs add to the theme. The Pisco bar, complete with glass roof and hanging baskets, is particularly attractive. The young staff are extremely helpful and efficient, ensuring each guest’s needs are met. Exceptionally for Paris, the hotel has two pool suites, with their own small pool and terrace, overlooking a tranquil courtyard.



The hotel is well-located for travellers who wish to explore one a buzzy Parisien neighbourhood – where locals actually go. The Marais and its hip boutiques and cafés are within close walking distance; the Musée Picasso is a 10-minute walk away; while the Centre Pompidou is 20 minutes’ away on foot. For night owls, the bars of Rue de la Roquette and Rue Charlot are also nearby. Nearby métro stations include Filles du Calvaire (line 8) and Oberkampf (lines 5 and 9).




Each bedroom has a general look of chic understated minimalism, with white walls and bedding, grey and black-toned modern furnishings, and black wood floors. Views from the bedrooms are either of Boulevard du Temple or the internal courtyard.There are striking contrasts with touches of South American décor, such as woven alpaca carpets and fabrics clashing with muted tones. The hotel’s large beds are very comfortable and sound, with effective light proofing. A smart TV with on-demand movies and international channels is provided, as well as a minibar. Lights are controlled by buttons at the side of the bed, with options to bathe the room in a range of colours. Bathrooms are semi-integrated into the room, equipped with either deep bathtubs or powerful rain showers, with the toilet behind a closed door.




The hotel benefits from an attractive terrace, as well as a good-quality restaurant and two bars: the Al Pisco Bar and La Mezcaleria, a speakeasy-style bar, tucked away behind the restaurant. The hotel has a small fitness room with Technogym machines and weights. The 1K restaurant blends Andean cuisine with French technique, and was, according to the hotel, Paris’ first Peruvian restaurant. We recommend you try one of the hotel’s signature cocktails such as the Nikkei Sour (matcha-infused pisco, lemon and Bénédictine); a pisco-based cocktail in the Al Pisco Bar, or amezcal-based concoction in the hidden Mezcaleria bar.

The Kube Hotel, Paris

The Kube Hotel, Paris

The quirky Kube Hotel, a 4 star designer hotel located between Montmartre and Gare de Nord in Paris, re-opened in Sept 2017 following an exciting and extensive refurbishment. This stunning destination hotel has a distinctive character, offers great value for money and houses the only Ice Bar in Paris.. what you are waiting for?! 




Offering an exceptional experience to visitors, this hotel is set in a gorgeous building, with amazing public spaces. Bedrooms are spacious, modern and sizeable with comfortable beds, offering auto-timed lighting, fingerprint keys and uber-modern TV’s in an immaculately bright and funky environment. With 41 rooms; this hotel has distinctive character, good food, and is extremely affordable. Its mezzanine level houses the only Ice Bar in Paris – always guaranteed to draw a party crowd! The hotel’s concept is based on a rather unusual post-apocalyptic era referring back to the 1930-50’s; with the Reception area housed in a glass cube in the middle of the front terrace next to an antique, dilapidated car. Reception staff dress in 1930’s fashion, while the lobby is actually the bar and restaurant with it’s walls decorated with beautiful greenery and hanging plants. Upon entering the Reception of the Kube Hotel; the first impression is that of a sculpture park. The courtyard has a very interesting collection of plastic lounge chairs that are not to dissimilar to bent joysticks. A polar bear sculpture keeps watch as check-in takes place inside a small glass cube in the middle of the pavement. Blue neon lighting lines the white hallways with black doors; whilst the stairways are covered in a fuzzy carpet.

“An amazing concept, for an amazing product”



Situated in the 18h arrondissement, The Kube Hotel can be found in a very ethnically diverse neighbourhood in Northern Paris. Just 10 minutes by foot from Gare de Lyon train station. The centre of Paris can be reached on the metro in under 30 minutes, with main attractions such as the Arc de Triomphe, and the Louvre Museum 30 minutes away by MetroCharles de Gaulle Airport is about 40 minutes away by car or taxi.  Less than 30 minutes walk away is the Sacred Heart Basilica in Montmarte

Kube location


The contemporary club theme of the hotel is reflected throughout in its room decor. Retro-chic flair combined with fascinating black and white graphics showcases features such as glass blocks which are integrated into the walls and headboards. Clear plastic chairs and hangers adorned with colourful bead can be found in the rooms; among other unusual details. There are 41 spacious rooms in total and no two are exactly alike. Closets are absent, but guests may use an exposed hanging rod over a pair of drawers with a bathrobe and slippers. Motion-triggered automated lighting can be found, as well as free Wi-Fi  (accessed via a code on the sleek TV). Each room is complete with an adorable mini-fridge and coffeemaker. Full showers are offered in some rooms; while other have an unwieldy handheld spout over the tub. The bathrooms are to be found behind a wall with no door on either side, with a small private toilet room.




There is free Wi-Fi access in rooms and throughout the Kube. A continental breakfast of coffee, juice, yogurt and pastries is included in the room price, but the distinguishing feature of this hotel is the ice bar, the only one in Paris and the first in France. Dancing and partying goes until the wee hour while the adjoining restaurant serves creative French cuisine in the evenings. There are meeting rooms spaciously arranged, with a large presentation room equipped with high-end audio-video machinery. The fitness center is small and cave-like but equipped with high-quality treadmills, bikes, and weight machines. Paid parking is located outside the hotel and is limited.

Christian Dior, Designer of Dreams

Maison Dior showcased at Musée des Arts Décoratifs to celebrate 70th anniversary

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of Maison Christian Dior, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris is presenting the exhibition “Christian Dior, Designer of Dreams” from July 5, 2017 to January 7, 2018. This stunning retrospective explores the ties between couture and all forms of art nurtured by the celebrated couturier and the designers who succeeded him at the Maison.

“Deep in every heart slumbers a dream and the couturier knows it: every woman is a princess.”
-Christian Dior

Christian Dior - Designer of dreams Christian Dior - Designer of dreams 2

Thirty years after a previous retrospective in Paris dedicated to Christian Dior, the new exhibition “Christian Dior, Designer of Dreams” marks the 70th anniversary of the creation of the Maison synonymous with the New Look and the iconic Bar suit. The chronological exhibition takes visitors from 1947 to 2017, showing the heritage of the Dior spirit over the decades as the Maison gained world renown and remains a global symbol of France today.

For the first time, an exhaustive selection of more than 300 haute couture gowns is displayed alongside toiles from the atelier, fashion photos and hundreds of documents (illustrations, sketches, letters and notes, advertisements and more).

The successive settings evoke an art gallery, an atelier, a street, a boudoir, travel and a fabulous garden, emphasizing the close ties between the Maison and the world of art. Monsieur Dior’s affinity with the arts was shared by the artistic directors who succeeded him: Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons, and today Maria Grazia Chiuri. 

The six galleries dedicated to the designers show how their own creations engage with and carry on this exceptional vision of haute couture, resonating with creations by other talents such as Frédéric Castet for fashion furs, beauty creations by Serge Lutens, Tyen and Peter Philips, and perfume creations by François Demachy.
