Bethel’s managing duo to retire

The couple who have been managing the Bethel seamen’s home and hotel for more than 21 years, Hanne and Jon Olsen, have decided to retire on 1 December 2011.

Over the past 21 years Hanne and Jon Olsen have been in charge of the day-to-day management of the centrally and beautifully located hotel, working with a team of dedicated employees and volunteers.
They have managed the seamen’s home located at Nyhavn 22 based on a concept of providing a homely atmosphere while caring for sailors and other guests, making Bethel’s one of the best hotels and places to stay in Copenhagen. Shipping companies and the maritime world as well as many travellers use the seamen’s home as a place to live or the stay the night in Copenhagen. Regular services are also held in the nearby seamen’s church, which all guests as well as people from the city, harbour and ships are invited to attend.

It is a great help for the governing board of the Hotel Bethel seamen’s home that the couple have informed us of their desire to hand over the reins in good time, as this will give enable us to prepare for the transition and find qualified successors at the end of the year. The post will be advertised in autumn 2011.
