Copenhagen's Manon Les Suites is the 'little sister' of a small string of family-owned eco-friendly hotels which have begun spreading their wings around Scandinavia. 

Housed in a refurbished office building, the exterior of Manon Les Suites might be nothing to write home about, but the moment you walk in that sentiment transforms as you're greeted with a warm smile and wholeheartedly 'hygge' decor which marries perfectly the new with the old. 


The awesome aesthetic creatively and playfully combines Balinese and Scandinavian design to create something luxurious yet down to earth, each detail thoughtfully put together to create a visual story of its worldly conscious creators. 

The pool area, set in the centre of the hotel feels like a terrarium from another world, with a plethora of plants cascading down from the balconies which line each floor, swaddling you on a sanctuary of serenity away from the outside world.

Each room is cosy and welcoming, dressed with the hotel's own line of organic, cruelty-free beauty products, aptly named, I Love Eco Essentials, which are housed in bottles made from upcycled plastic or made from biodegradable materials.

After a sincerely serene slumber, we began our day with the hotel's fabled organic seasonal waste free breakfast in their rooftop restaurant/bar. It has ski chalet feel to it; cosy and woody with windows on all outward facing walls and a viewing deck on which you can enjoy your coffee. The restaurant manager, a kind and accommodating woman with a brilliant sense of humour put together some vegan options for us, which were both filling and delicious. 

Once we'd digested and successfully checked out of our room, we went for a quick workout in the hotel's aesthetic, and by European standards, giant gym in the basement of the hotel equipped with a full-sized boxing ring and all the amenities you might want or need to keep your body healthy and toned.


On the top floor is the rooftop spa, which sits adjacent to the restaurant separated by a wooden deck and wall. Behind it sits a steam room and sauna paired with an outdoor shower and a water bucket which with the pull of the rope which dangles down from it, can engulf your body in refreshing icy water. Allowing you to escape into a blissful state high above the city, safe within the hotel's walls.

I wholeheartedly recommend this as a place to stay for anyone of any age with any family dynamic, the staff is kind and friendly, the rooms quiet and cosy, the food delicious and the space inspiring. You really can't go wrong.
