Copenhagen Living on the water

A second night in Copenhagen I opted for a totally different lodging style. CPH Living is a barge moored in Copenhagen\'s harbour, just accross the bridge from the city centre. It is basic, the hotel practically has no facilities but it can\'t be beat for views, functional style, price and sound sleeping. The views: all rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows and a door which opens as a petite French balcony to unveil (you can blind out the light and views with a louvre system) fabulous views over the Copenhagen waters. You can even watch the water from the shower -at least before the glass partition to the bedroom fogs out- As this is the only lodging of its kind in Copenhagen the views are -well- priceless. Functional style: being a barge the designers took quite some ideas from the boating business. Hardwood deck floors, efficient storage, platform bunkbeds. Efficient does not mean uncomfortable. Combining a fine bed and gentle rocking on the waves this is one of the best sleeps I ever had in a hotel. Price: for an expensive city this is surely value-for-money. Sound sleeping: I already mentioned that, didn\'t I? Other ++ of the CPH Living. A nice \'light\' breakfast included in the rate which included some delicious sweet Danish (we are in Denmark, no?) Excellent working WiFi. Terrific hot power shower.
