German budget hotel chain Motel One has announced plans to add its first property in Scandinavia next month, taking over operation of the existing H27 hotel (previously known as Hotel Twentyseven) in the Danish capital Copenhagen.

The property is located in downtown Copenhagen, close to City Hall, Tivoli Gardens, and The National Museum, and around ten minutes’ walk from the city’s Central station.

It was recent renovated by owners Pandox, and features 200 rooms, a restaurant and bar, meeting space and an outdoor terrace.

Rooms have been refurbished “in the style of the Danish 50s and 60s, which works well with the traditional building from 1927”, and the reception desk has been integrated into the hotel’s bar.

Motel One launched in 2000 with budget properties located close to German motorways, but has steadily expanded its portfolio to around 75 hotels across Europe, including city centre properties in UK locations including Edinburgh, Glasgow, London, Manchester and Newcastle.

The group recently added its first US hotel, following an agreement with Union Investment to take over operation of a former Courtyard by Marriott hotel in New York.

Commenting on the addition Stefan Lenze, Co-CEO Motel One, said:

“Copenhagen is one of the most exciting cities in Europe and we are proud to enter the Scandinavian market with our first hotel in a truly fantastic location.

“We would like to thank Pandox for their trust and we look forward to working with one of the largest hotel investors in Europe.

“We extend a warm welcome to all employees of the hotel and look forward to welcoming and exciting many guests.”
