Condé Nast recently released their annual Gold List of the best hotels in the world for 2020. Every year, editors and contributors around the world put together the list of the absolute best hotels in the world, experienced from their own perspective. Although the list was packed with some pretty gorgeous hotels, only one Scandinavian hotel made the list.

The Nimb Hotel, located in the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, is a luxurious boutique hotel boasting 38 unique rooms, all exquisitely designed in a typical Scandinavian fashion but with elements from the Far East.

We look forward to once again welcoming our guests to Nimb’s restaurants! 🙏🏼 The safety of our guests and employees is of the highest importance, which is why we have provided the necessary space between our restaurant tables in addition to extra cleaning. We also offer hand sanitizer stations in the restaurants and hotel. There is therefore no need to worry about hygiene. All you need to do is simply enjoy your visit to Nimb. Cleaning and hygiene are always high priorities at Nimb. But in preparation of the reopening of our restaurants, we have, in collaboration with a consulting firm specialised in hygiene, reviewed all procedures and optimised all processes, ensuring we provide our guests with the highest service. 🍾 On 18 May, Crème by Nimb will reopen its café and takeout service from early morning till late evening; Nimb Brasserie will offer morning, lunch and evening dining; and Nimb Bar will be open for afternoon tea. 🦀🦞🦐 Old favourites will return in new guises. The city’s best brunch (and breakfast) as well as Nimb’s famous seafood buffet will now be served for sharing at the table and not, like previously, as lavish buffets – naturally without compromising on gastronomic quality or culinary indulgence. 🎠🎡 🥗🍰 When Tivoli Gardens opens on 8 June, you can once again visit Cakenhagen, Gemyse, Mazzoli’s and Fru Nimb, all of which serve inspiring summer cuisine as well as offer innovative takeout options to be enjoyed in the splendid summer setting of Tivoli Gardens. #nimbcopenhagen #nimb

Condé Nast travel contributor Stephen Whitlock says about Nimb:

“Despite a well-honed reputation for design, Scandinavia isn’t exactly overflowing with wonderful hotels. This happens to be one of them, a place that’s both practical and magical. It’s opposite the railway station but adjoins the fairy-tale-fabulous Tivoli Gardens, which owns the hotel. The building dates from 1909 and has an over-the-top Moorish façade, topped by domes and turrets, as well as a zippy modern annexe with plant-filled terraces. It’s also Denmark’s first hotel with a rooftop pool and bar.”

“All of this, plus outstanding food in a town where inventive plates are a ferociously competitive obsession (how many other hotels have their own pastry store?), make it one of the most unusual – and certainly one of the sleekest – places to stay in Scandinavia. That said, it’s also deeply cosy. Danish aspirations are all about living well surrounded by great materials, which explains the enviable wooden floors, dreamy beds, and rich fabrics in the bedrooms (most in the original building have fireplaces), along with homegrown spirits in the minibar. The breakfast is one to linger over, with rye-bread porridge, served with sea buckthorn, and a signature sausage made with ramson and gouda. And a spa was added in 2018, with a bone-warming hammam. It’s a haute-hygge place where no corners have been cut. The Tivoli Gardens is a much-loved part of Denmark’s soul, and in many ways, the Nimb is the same: a beautiful and cheering place for escaping the real world, if only for a while”
