State-of-the-art rooms and interior design

Preserving the history

In recent years, Aalborg has undergone a remarkable transformation from a traditional industrial city to a modern architecture and cultural hub. The waterfront where our design hotel is located is a living example of the cultural revival, where old industrial areas have been transformed into exciting and innovative urban spaces.

When the past and the future meet

At Pier 5, we have embraced the evolution by creating a unique hotel experience that combines the industrial past with contemporary Scandinavian design. The hotel is designed with the use of industrial elements and historical images from Aalborg Harbor, reflecting the city’s rich cultural heritage and development over time.

A complete experience when you need an overnight stay in Aalborg city center.

At the same time, we prioritize modern Scandinavian design in our interiors, creating a comfortable and stylish atmosphere that is characteristic of the Scandinavian lifestyle. As a guest, you can therefore expect a complete hotel experience that values the past and embraces the future in the heart of the city.

Designed and furnished with respect for the environment

We consider every decision we make

At Pier 5, we prioritize the environment and consistently work towards creating a greener and more sustainable future. We are proud to be a Green Key-certified hotel, which is a recognition of our extra efforts to protect the environment through sustainable solutions.

Efficient energy utilization

We make efforts to minimize our water and energy consumption by implementing water-saving measures and using energy-efficient light bulbs in the rooms. We also choose to use products with biodegradable packaging and communicate digitally with you to reduce our paper consumption.

Sustainable materials

When it comes to interior design as well, we focus on environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions. We have chosen to produce our key cards and “do not disturb” signs in cherry wood instead of plastic, and we have ensured that our hangers in the room wardrobes are made from 100% recycled paper. Therefore, your stay at our downtown hotel is the sustainable choice.

Organic Quality

We have also replaced traditional mini soaps with refillable soap dispensers containing Danish-developed organic quality soaps from Meraki. It is just one of the ways we demonstrate our commitment to creating a sustainable and environmentally friendly atmosphere for you.

We call it Bühlmann Believe.

When you choose to stay at Pier 5, you become a part of Bühlmann’s efforts to promote responsible hotel stays. We know that it’s just a small step towards a better world, but we believe that it’s the many small steps that lead to significant changes in the long run. We are proud to offer you an experience where sustainability, quality, design, and comfort go hand in hand.
