Hotel star rating:
A stay at three-star Alexandra is something out of the ordinary; as a retro design hotel it rose to popularity in the 1990s, when its combination of turn-of-the-century architecture and original 20th-century interior design brought it to the attention of magazines as diverse as Elle and Wallpaper. Originally built as an apartment block around 1900, the hotel's original furniture classics range from Kaare Klint chairs to Poul Henningsen light fittings, and can be found in the hotel bedrooms as well as in the lobby and hallways. A green-key approved, environmentally-friendly hotel, the Alexandra is also ideal for people with allergies: four of the hotel's floors are non-smoking, and one has been approved as being entirely allergy-friendly.
