Copenhagen Public Bath House was built at the initiative of a physician named Hjær. It was built in 1901-03 and designed by Gotfred Tvede and Valdemar Schmidt. The groundfloor contained a vestibule flanked by a restaurant and hairdresser's for men and women. The bathing facilities were located in the side wing while the premises on the upper floors of the main wing were let out to clinics. The bathing facilities were divided by gender. The section for women were located in the ground floor while the section for men was located on the first and second floors.[1]

Hotel Ascot opened in the building in the early 1970s.


The hotel is owned by Claus Hildebrandt and has 150 rooms. An additional 60 hotel apartments in the neighbouring building Vægtergården closed down in 2018 and will be converted into 113 hotel rooms. They will be marketed under a new brand but the two hotels will share facilities such as lobby and restaurant.[2]
