International jet-setters may come to Denmark in search of modernist furniture. But the Nimb, is anything but a design hotel — the quiet confidence of this 13-room lodging leaves the hard-striving hipster boutiques in the dust.

This building, bordering on the famed Tivoli Gardens, has been in the family for generations. While its present incarnation as a hotel is brand-new, the look is timeless, classic furnishings and top-quality materials arranged with a keen modern eye, familiar and at the same time totally unique. It’s the oldest cliché in the book to say that a hotel feels like a private home but every now and then it’s true.

Then again very few private homes come with a food market, a wine shop, a chocolatier and even a dairy — Løgismose handles its organic single-origin milk with a reverence more typically applied to single-malt whiskies or reserve wines. Not to mention the restaurants: Thomas Herman is one of the leaders of Copenhagen’s ongoing culinary revolution, and his eponymous dining room (along with Nimb’s more casual open-kitchen eatery) is among the hottest tickets in Northern Europe.
