On a quiet street in Copenhagen’s Vesterbro neighbourhood, you’ll find Central Hotel & Cafe, one of the world’s smallest hotels.
And with only five seats in the coffee shop, the cafe isn’t exactly Wembley Stadium either!
But the inarguable charm of the place is what makes Central Hotel popular with locals and visitors alike!
Not to mention, there’s only one visitor at a time due to its size, so it’s an ideal location for travelling during COVID!
Let’s delve into it a little!
The small side building is more than 100 years old and was originally a shoemaker’s workshop with a tiny apartment on top.
In 2011, the owners of the Granola Café — former set designer Leif Thingtved and indie entrepreneur Jacob Kampp — bought the place and opened a small café on the ground floor.
Leif then spent the next one and a half years designing, building and decorating the hotel with careful (some would say extreme) attention to detail.
The Central Hotel & Café is already a design landmark in Copenhagen and has featured both Danish and international press.
This is a hotel with only one room, but what a room!
Located on top of the small café, the double room of Central Hotel has a unique interior design with beautiful handcrafted details that will make even the pickiest boutique hotel aficionado feel right at home.
The room includes a double bed with sheets from Geismar, bathroom with shower, a minibar stocked with nothing but the best, a flat screen television that can be hidden from view, a stereo where you can connect your iPhone, and free Wi-Fi.
Your stay here includes delicious breakfast from the Granola Café half a block away.
This tiny café is a neighbourhood favourite.
Here the locals get their morning coffee to stay or to go and meet up with friends and neighbours.
The place is cosy and lively at the same time!
Enjoy a sandwich, delicious pastry, organic ice cream, old-fashioned milkshake, fresh juice or maybe a banana split!
The coffee is a particular highlight, and is made from freshly roasted beans from Risteriet.
