The Hotel d'Angleterre is one of the first deluxe hotels in the world. Situated in the heart of Copenhagen, Denmark, it is located on Kongens Nytorv opposite Charlottenborg, the Royal Opera and Nyhavn. While its history dates back to 1755, it has been in its current building since a fire, in 1795, damaged the previous building beyond repair. [1] From 1872 to 1875, the building was significantly extended and refurbished [1] by the architects, Vilhelm Dahlerup [2] and Georg E.W. Møller [3] The hotel has long been considered the most prestigious and elegant hotel in the city. [4] Its name is French and means the "England Hotel".
