Brøchner creates Hotel Ottilia within former Carlsberg brewery

Brøchner Hotels has announced a mid-January opening date for Hotel Ottilia, a boutique property within Copenhagen’s former Carlsberg brewery buildings.

Reinterpreting the industrial architecture whilst preserving the structure’s original unpolished details throughout, the 155-key project is clad in a façade adorned by 64 gold shields on one side, and 64 large round windows on the other, whilst a retained tower holds suites with multi-sided turret windows. Hotel Ottilia also features conference facilities for up to 200 people within the former production space, a spa and bath concept, and a rooftop terrace with an Italian restaurant.

Karim Nielsen, CEO at Brøchner Hotels, comments: “We are very aware, that the buildings we are creating Hotel Ottilia in, is a part of Danish history. As an authentic boutique hotel commands, we bring the history of the buildings into the design of the hotel. The grain silos and industrial elements are incorporated in the interior and is essential to the new purpose and story of the buildings and the hotel.”

Situated within the Carlsberg City District currently undergoing a phase of urban renewal, the hotel will be in close proximity to Copenhagen Zoo and cultural hub Vesterbro’s restaurants and bars. Meanwhile, Brøchner’s sustainable ethos will touch elements from the organic breakfast to a collaborating with Danish company Danfoss to create low emission automatic temperature levels.

“We are creating unique hotels and experiences that reinvent the hotel stay, and in our opinion the Carlsberg City District is one of the most unique areas in Copenhagen,” Nielsen adds. “Hotel Ottilia offers both guests and locals a one-of-a-kind experience in many ways, as this hotel is much more than just a hotel.”
