HOTEL SKT. PETRI
Situated in the Krystalgade close to Copenhagen's main shopping boulevard Strøget, the Royal Palace and the hottest nightlife spots, Hotel Skt. Petri is the perfect gateway to explore this hip and vibrant Northern European metropolis. The 268-room hotel is everything which top-notch modern Scandinavian design has to offer: modern urban living comfort, featuring minimalist style and a magnificent to-the-point functionality with sober and strong lines. Danish artist Per Arnoldi has based the color scheme on the tricolor: bright whites contrasting with cool blues and vivid reds adorn the Skt Petri's interiors down to every last kitchen utensil.
