Located in the Tivoli Gardens, Hotel Nimb is housed in Danish architect Knud Arne Petersen's striking, 1909 Moorish-inspired structure, which features a central onion-dome tower, decorative minarets, and arched colonnades illuminated at night by thousands of tiny bulbs. Crystal chandeliers hang from the high ceiling of the lobby, and Matteo Thun's costly 2008 redesign of the hotel's 14 suites (each outfitted with a fireplace and sitting room) emphasizes neutral colors and incorporates elements such as Douglas fir woodwork and Venetian marble. The onsite restaurant, Herman, received in a Michelin star in 2009 for chef Thomas Herman's innovative mingling of international and traditional Danish fare.
