Guldsmeden Bryggen in central Copenhagen has 211 rooms decorated in their signature Nordics-meet-Bali style. All rooms are equipped with Orbital Shower.
Sustainability is the core of Guldsmeden operations. No decision is made without having defined their sustainability angle first. Their goal is to offer guests a wonderful stay with as little negative environmental impact as possible.
"The reception get lots of comments about how cool it is that we, as a hotel, are also at the forefront when it comes to technical solutions for sustainability. Not to mention the comfort - everyone thinks it's fantastic that you can be environmentally smart while taking a really nice and warm shower."
Kirsten Aggersborg, PR & Communications Manager, Guldsmeden Hotels
In addition to the showers saving water and energy, Orbital Showers have also become part of the hotel chain's marketing and a real talking point among guests. Not particularly surprising, according to Guldsmeden - apart from the savings, it was the high level of comfort that felt right. It fits perfectly with Guldsmeden's own ambition to offer a sustainable experience without compromising quality or comfort in any way.
Already in 2018, 8 Orbital Showers were installed at Hotel Axel in Copenhagen. They save an average of 42-65 liters of water and use 55-57% less energy than a normal shower. When you saw how well the Orbital Shower was received by Axel's guests, it was obvious to take this further to more Guldsmeden hotels.
