Perhaps one of Copenhagen’s quirkiest hotels is the CPH Living, a floating hotel in the harbor. The converted barge is moored in trendy Christianshavn and offers guests a simple yet amazingly unique design experience.
Featuring wood floors and Scandinavian contemporary furnishings, the 12 minimalistic designed rooms are all boasting of panorama river and city views. But perhaps the most striking part of this hotel is its sundeck, which invites guests to enjoy fresh air and sunshine from the unique rooftop terrace with seating and sun loungers. There are bikes available for rent too, when you feel ready to explore what the city has to offer.
On the eco-cool side, the hotel has reduced its CO2 emissions considerably through the use of a geothermal heating system; a heat pump extracting heat from sea water.
Location wise, CPH Living is a fairly central hotel, with lots of cafe’s and restaurants (Noma!) nearby. There’s a 15 minutes easy walk to the city centre. On a hot summer day you can go for a dip at the trendy harbour beach ‘Havnebadet’ at Islands Brygge, which is just moments away.
When to stay? June, July and August are all great months to stay at CPH Living as warmer temperature and sunshine are most likely and you can make the most of the hotel’s wonderful sun deck.
Double rooms are from DKK 1,380 / € 185, including a simple breakfast. There’s also free wifi in this hotel. Find out more and book a room through their website; cphliving.com
