Stockholm’s light, bright Nobis Hotel (nobishotel.se; from £270) has done right by the Swedish capital, with its soaring mezzanine, stylish Italian‑leaning cocktail bar and covetable Byredo bath amenities earning it fans across the globe; likewise at sister property Miss Clara by Nobis (missclarahotel.com; from £175), with its task lamps, wrought-iron beds and general early-20th-century nostalgic air. Now Nobis has landed in Copenhagen (nobishotel.dk; from about £355), with 77 elegant rooms and suites fitted into the former seat of the Royal Academy of Music, a four-storey Danish-classical stunner just a short stroll from Tivoli Gardens. The interiors take inspiration liberally from various design periods, and boast gorgeous chevron floors, brass light fittings – and much respect from Swedish architect Gert Wingårdh for the building’s original bones and occasional baroque flourishes (the stunning central staircase with its 15m bespoke chandelier is probably already saturating your Instagram feed).
