GEM - SP34, Denmark

Reception - As you approach SP34 in Copenhagen, you see the neon yellow sign indicating the entrance, reminiscent of a newly-approved 'speak-easy' as it's mixed among residences in an un-touristic part of town called the Latin Quarter. The street is filled with restaurants, design stores, and bicycle shops all with a Bohemian style. Walking in you're not sure if it's an art gallery, coffee shop, or a hotel, but understand it's definitely a cool vibe. The library sits raised with a large window facing the quiet street and you'll still question where the formalities of check-in occur, until you see the sign with the bar serving also as reception. You can cozy up between others enjoying coffee or a drink and begin that process. Nearby in the 'lobby' sits over-sized couches, swanky prints and other art scattered among people working or enjoying a beverage. The rooms are simplistic and modern, but meets all of your needs.  Each room tends to be different, some with balconies or nontraditional configurations, but only adds to the aesthetic appeal. Should you get lost, there are artistic signs throughout. Attached to the hotel are 3 eateries, each with different style, yet contemporary and trendy with both visitors and locals. From the Secret Garden to the classic Burger joint or the cafe, there are many options to settle in and feel as though your experiencing the real Nordic lifestyle that Copenhagen has to offer. And don't miss the 'wine hour' from 5-6pm with complimentary hand-selected varietals while you meander around the lobby looking at the art!
