A building with soul
First Hotel Atlantic was built in the 1960s at a time when renowned Danish architects such as Arne Jacobsen and Mogens Lassen shaped Danish modernism. And whether you are in the lobby or in one of the 102 rooms you will enjoy an elegant ambiance in keeping with Nordic design traditions.
The charming downtown hotel underwent extensive refurbishment in January 2014 with great veneration for the original modern design with its dark hardwood and bright and pure-lined ambiances. With unique attention to detail, each floor has been given its own colour scheme. There is an intimate feeling and the hotel wonderfully combines urban life with contemporary comfort.
