Lyngby Storcenter enters into collaboration with Comwell: Will operate new and completely renovated hotel on top of the shopping centre

When the extensive renovation of the high-rise building on top of Lyngby Storcenter is complete, the Danish-owned hotel chain Comwell Hotels will operate the new hotel for the benefit of the city's citizens, business people and tourists.

200 bright and inviting rooms, a fitness room and state-of-the-art meeting facilities on the 12th floor, a roof terrace and rooftop bar with views of the city and Dyrehaven, as well as several exciting eateries are what the high-rise building on top of Lyngby Storcenter can open its doors to when the extensive renovation is complete. The new hotel will be operated by the well-known and experienced hotel chain Comwell Hotels, which together with Lyngby Storcenter is looking forward to welcoming a new and unique gathering place in the city.

"In collaboration with Comwell, we will set the framework for a brand new meeting place that creates life and community in Lyngby and makes the city even more attractive to local residents, tourists and business people. Lyngby is in rapid development, and our plans for a new, modern hotel are fully in line with Lyngby-Taarbæk Municipality's ambitions for a more vibrant and experience-rich Lyngby that strengthens the city's culture and commercial life," says Casper von der Ahé, Centre Manager at Lyngby Storcenter.

Therefore, the hotel's many different facilities will also be open to others than hotel guests. The roof terrace, rooftop bar, restaurants, lobby and Co-Work area will be freely accessible to everyone.

"We want to run a hotel with well-appointed rooms and fantastic meeting facilities that we are known for, but we also want to be an integral part of Lyngby and give something back. Therefore, we open our doors and invite the city inside, and everyone is more than welcome to hold a meeting in the Co-Work area with free coffee, tea and Wi-Fi or invite the family for dinner in one of the restaurants. Even though we are a chain, the hotel will have its own unique expression to suit the city - just like all our other Comwell hotels," says Peter Schelde, CEO of Comwell Hotels.

The fact that Comwell is expanding the hotel chain in Lyngby is no coincidence. For Comwell, it is important that the hotel is close to the city, green areas, motorway and public transport, making it easy and attractive to visit for business guests as well as locals and tourists. Therefore, the collaboration with Lyngby Storcenter is an obvious choice for the Danish-owned hotel chain.

DSC, the owner of Lyngby Storcenter, is also excited about the collaboration with Comwell as it is a result of the company's strategic development:

"We invest heavily in the development of all our centres, and the complete renovation of the high-rise building in Lyngby Storcenter is a good example of this. The development will ensure that our centres remain attractive and relevant to our customers, and we are therefore very pleased that Comwell, as a leading player in the Danish market, will operate the future hotel and make it a local anchor in the city. Finally, I would also like to thank Scandic, which has operated the current hotel, for a great collaboration," says Jesper Faurholdt, CEO of DSC.

About the new hotel in Lyngby Storcenter:

  • In addition to approximately 200 state-of-the-art rooms, the 13-storey hotel will have an inviting restaurant, lobby and Co-Work area, a rooftop bar, a modern eatery closer to street level and a rooftop terrace with views of the entire city centre.

  • The hotel is open to all, with residents of the city as well as guests of Lyngby Storcenter free to use the Co-Work area and lobby, and you don't have to be a guest of the hotel to use the restaurants and rooftop bar.

  • The total renovation is expected to start in 2024, using the original skeleton of the high-rise building.

  • The renovation itself is expected to take around two years, and when the hotel opens, it will be run by Danish hotel operator Comwell Hotels.
