If you don’t like the colour green, avert your eyes now. Skt. Petri is filled with it. Emerald and chartreuse set the tone for central spaces, while living walls and climbing plants smother chandeliers and other surfaces.
The lobby is punchy and graphic, with bold circular lighting overhead and chevron-patterned flooring. While Skt. Petri does tilt toward corporate bookings, it’s more business casual than super serious, offering a well-balanced space whether you’re off the clock or on.
Catering to large groups and offering very affordable room rates in a central location, the hotel is a winning choice for a Copenhagen getaway, with generously sized rooms, friendly staff and thoughtful design touches.
For a little over £100 per night, the rooms at Skt. Petri are impressive. Spacious, and with all the “basics” you couldn’t get by without – fluffy robes, nice linens and a well-stocked mini bar – standard rooms are functional and fun. Instagrammable design features include an embossed focal wall and a particularly covetable mushroom-topped lamp.
What’s for breakfast?
Breakfast is a grand affair – and a busy one at that. Between 9-10.30am seems to be a particularly popular time, so early birds and late risers will fair well here.
For extra seating options, enjoy breakfast on the patio or in the spillover area to the right of the central bar. Choose from a wrap-around buffet bar featuring fresh and dried fruits, yoghurt and cereals, cheeses and breads, as well as a hot food station.
Coffee and tea stations are at the ready for second and even third cups of your morning brew.
How about lunch and dinner?
As with breakfast, lunch and dinner is served on level one in the main lobby-cum-restaurant. You don’t need to make a meal out of it – you can drop in for a light snack – but if it’s a feast you’re after, the lunch menu at Petri Restaurant has some great options.
Sloppy joe sliders and chips with truffle mayonnaise may not be haute Scandi fare, but they are undeniably good.
Alternatively, if you’re staying at the hotel Tuesday through Saturday, book a table at Restaurant Dada for some lick-the-plate-clean mezze.
Is there a bar?
Yes, there’s Petri Bar, but you will be sitting among diners. If a change of scene is as sought after as a sip of the cold stuff, we’d venture elsewhere.
There’s a gym as well as a business centre. The latter also joins on to a series of conference rooms, which are bookable via reception.
Things you should know…
By the lift (on each floor) you’ll spot a shoe-shining machine – use it. Not sure how? Place your foot below the leather conditioner pump and work your way along the conveyor line to buff and shine your shoes ahead of your morning meeting.
Within a short walk you’ll find
Walk the steep incline to Rundetaarn, a beautiful tower minutes from Skt. Petri – its cobbled floors and minimalist interiors will abate you. Design fans should make the pilgrimage to HAY House, scouting the design studio’s impeccably curated flagship – purchase colourful glass jugs and quirky lampshades.
