Hotel Fox, in Copenhagen, should definitely be on your list of ‘must see-must stay in’ hotels of the world, quite simply for its uniqueness.
This hotel is run by the Danish hotel chain, the Brochner group, which is owned by the Brochner-Mortensen family.
The Brochner group was founded in 1982, and today, they run a number of hotels, some within Copenhagen itself.
Copenhagen is the capital city of Denmark and also its most populous city. The cityscape is beautiful and is somewhat like what you see in the movies or in paintings with its old bridges and tunnels, promenades and waterfronts.
Copenhagen is sometimes known as the ‘city of spires’ because of its skyline. Over the years this city has seen many architectural changes and inclusions that have given it a more modern touch.
Hotel Fox is a boutique art hotel which was launched in 2005 as part of Volkswagen’s campaign for the car of the same name. Coming back to why this hotel is so unique: each room(sixty one in all), feels and looks like a personal art gallery!
There’s a story behind that — twenty one artists (from the fields of graphic design, urban art and illustration) were commissioned to design the rooms in whichever way they liked, with absolutely no restrictions on them.
This resulted in sixty-one exclusive pieces of art where everything from carpets and furnishings to lamps and wall murals were created specifically for that single room. The artists include Tokidoki, Genevieve Gauckler, Boris Hoppek, Antoine et Manuel, Martin Lorenz, Birgit Amadori, Ariel Aguilera, Kim Hiorthoy, to name a few! When all these creative geniuses got to work, the rooms looked nothing less than masterpieces!
Each designer room comes with its own theme coupled with bright and original decor and a three dimensional feel to it —now wouldn’t you want to be a part of that experience?!
Hotel Fox is quite centrally located with buses and metro stations right there! The airport is only fifteen minutes away by metro.
The Fox being set in the midst of ‘Pisserenden’, which is the city’s happening Latin Quarter, guests at the hotel can easily walk it to the streets here that are lined with shops, art galleries, bars, restaurants and vintage cafes.
The Fox is also roughly a ten-minute walk from the Tivoli amusement park and the City Hall Square.
Apart from the city’s numerous churches and parks, one must also visit the Little Mermaid Statue, the Rosenberg Castle, the Thorvalsden Museum and the Copenhagen Concert Hall. Hotel Fox has made it even easier to visit all these places of interest with its new, eco friendly, electric car venture.
The Brochner group of hotels prides itself on being the first carbon neutral hotel group in the world and as part of this environment friendly initiative they’ve acquired electric cars which will transport their guests to all the local attractions and back! The Fox’s ‘uniqueness’ is evident even in their approach to sightseeing!
