Brøchner Hotels’ new 5-star luxury boutique hotel, Hotel Herman K, is the first hotel in Denmark where chemicals are not a part of the cleaning products and process. A natural step for the Danish leading boutique hotel chain, who aims to create unique and sustainable hotels.
The hotel, which is situated in central Copenhagen in a converted station, welcomes guests through glass doors and into a large high-ceiling lobby area. In the centre of the lobby is a striking art piece, comprising of various branches which together hang above a bar in the public space.
Juxtaposing the dramatic public area, the guestrooms and suites upstairs are clean, light and typically minimalist with a soft cooling grey and dark blue colour scheme which marry up with white marble surfaces and contemporary furniture.
Hotel Herman K’s new resources in its housekeeping and cleaning process, for the benefit of both the environment, guests and the staff. Brøchner Hotels has together with the Danish company ACT.Global, coated all the exclusive rooms and suites and has become the first chemical-free hotel in Denmark.
The rooms and suites are treated with ACT CleanCoat – an invisible and odourless coating that makes surfaces self-disinfectant, ensuring low-bacterial level, healthy indoor climate and cleaner air. “We saw that limestone and dirt simply did not stick to bathroom elements, to the same extent as before the coating,” explained Christian Lond, Director of Procurement at Brøchner Hotels. “Because of this, our Quality & Service team do not have to use cleaning products containing chemicals, and the cleaning itself is also less demanding.
In addition to the chemical-free unique selling point, the hotel’s tech edge allows for a seamless check-in process, while also allowing guests checking in to personalise their entertainment system, which all rooms featuring state-of-the-art screens and speakers.
The hotel is the fourth property in the Brøchner Hotels portfolio and opens with the aim to raise the bar of Copenhagen’s hotel scene.
