    Background: With 22 storeys rising to 230 feet, Copenhagen's Royal Hotel - running smoothly after a few busy months' trial - is Scandinavia's highest business building and largest hotel. Not a skyscraper in the literal sense of the word, but high enough to give an unobscured view from anywhere above the eighth floor.

    There are 257 rooms with a total of 475 beds in this glass-fronted hive of accommodation, with furniture, curtains, carpets, lighting, chine, and even the cutlery designed by Arne Jacobsen, Professor of the city's Academy of Arts.

    Facilities for every client range from bathrooms and refrigerators to telephones and television sets. A service panel in each room has five push buttons for different radio programmes, one to ring the maid, another to switch on a "Do not disturb" sign outside the door, and a last one to bid callers enter. When moving about the hotel, clients carry a tiny pocket receiver set so that they can be notified of any calls for them.

    The new hotel, which also caters for the connoisseur's palate, has been built by SAS, the Scandinavian airlines.
