As the largest hotel operator in the Nordics and based on many years’ experience running hotels, we see great potential in this new and different hotel
– Søren Faerber
Scandic Hotels’ latest property Scandic Spectrum is now open, a lively new hotel in Denmark’s capital city of Copenhagen.

Located on the waterfront, the hotel is complete with 632 rooms, a wellness area, two restaurants, a rooftop bar and event spaces.

Open to hotel guests and day guests alike, the hotel’s wellness area is inspired by Nordic forests, fjords and mountains. Here, guests can access an indoor pool, Finnish sauna, experience showers, foot baths, relaxation spaces, a steamroom and a Rasul.

A variety of treatments are on offer featuring natural and sustainable products provided by responsible Danish skincare and spa brand Yroli.

Yroli blends its products with a combination of microalgae, Nordic berries and African fruits.

Spa treatments also incorporate pure almond oils, essential oils, organic herbs and salts, including ingredients from the hotel’s kitchens and herbal gardens.

“As the largest hotel operator in the Nordics and based on many years’ experience running hotels, we see great potential in this new and different hotel,” says Søren Faerber, head of Scandic Denmark.

“The hotel offers a wide range of experiences whether you’re on a weekend getaway in Copenhagen, looking for a unique conference venue or just want to enjoy our spa facilities or a social event.”

Owned by Havfonn AS and Hathon Holding AS, the six-floor hotel is described as offering modern facilities with a Nordic touch. It represents the largest hotel in Scandic’s portfolio and also marks the group’s 30th Danish property.

Scandic Spectrum was designed by Dissing + Weitling, with Space Copenhagen responsible for the interiors inspired by the Nordic lifestyle and referencing both nature and the historic industrial harbour nearby.

This is reflected in the choice of materials such as glass, concrete and steel while the natural beauty of the Nordics is echoed in the use of stone, wood and a muted palette.

Sustainability is an integral part of Scandic Spectrum's DNA and the hotel is certified according to the Nordic Swan Ecolabel’s new requirements that include a special focus on climate impact.

In practice, this means that Scandic Spectrum will focus on reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions, increase the use of eco-label cleaning products and serve more environmentally-friendly food while reducing food waste.

Sustainability also plays an important role at the hotel’s two restaurants, Ansvar and Nordbo, both of which focus on high-quality organic ingredients from local suppliers.

Following the opening of Scandic Spectrum, Scandic now operates 14 hotels in Greater Copenhagen with a total of 3,786 rooms.
