Amy Adejokun Section editor

A small charming and cosy floating hotel that doesn't have much to offer in terms of facilities, but that is ideal for a different experience of the city. This 'boat-el' is one of a kind in the city and sits immobile on the bank close to the Islands Brygge harbour. Down on the water, the hotel is ideally placed for romantic sunset views over the water and if you like the idea of sleeping over the water, then this is the place to stay. It has two floors and a beautiful sundeck, which is the highlight of the hotel. CPH Living is close to the city centre and to the quieter Islands Brygge, which makes it a great base to explore the rest of the city from.

    Location 5.06 /10

    The boat is located on the canal close to Amager Bridge that links the city centre to the other side of the canal. Islands Brygge harbour is a five minute walk away and is a great place to hang out in the summer - it is the only place where the water is treated in order for people to have a quick (and very cold!) dip in the warmer months. During the Copenhagen Jazz Festival (first ten days of July) there are also lots of free events taking place in this area. If you explore the area, you will also find a handful of bohemian shops, restaurants and cafés. The other, busier, side of the city is a ten minute walk away. The nearest landmarks are Central Station, the NY Carlsberg Glyptotek (one of the city best art museums) and Tivoli Gardens.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    There are 12 rooms in total, 6 on each floor. Each has a similar decor - white walls, blue soft furnishings and well designed space-saving furniture. The sliding wardrobes make plenty of space for storing away clothes during your stay and also hide a flat screen television. There is no mini-bar. The rooms all have the typical Scandinavian double beds made up of two single mattresses and two single duvets. The rooms are comfortable even if they are on the small side as you have everything you need. However, if you are a light sleeper, bring an eye mask as the pull-up blinds still let in quite a lot of sunlight, so to ensure a good night's sleep, make sure you are well-equipped. A sliding door to the side of the entrance leads to a small compact and very pleasant bathroom. All have showers and soap dispensers (which can be used for hands, hair and body). Make sure you share the room with a very close friend if you are female, as the bathroom has a 'strategically-placed' window in the shower, giving full upper body view to whomever might be in the bedroom. The blue mosaic bathrooms with small round glass sinks have a fresh look and make you feel like in a conventional hotel.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    CPH Living is a compact little hotel that makes for a great place to explore the city from in the day and a romantic hangout for two at night on the deck overlooking the water. The owners have done a great job of concerting the boat into a hotel in 2007-9, which has a pleasing finish despite being very simple. There isn't much to this hotel, but liked spending time here. The atmosphere is relaxed and you will be well away from the madding crowds here; ideal if you're look for some down-time. There are two floors with 6 rooms on each corridor and a third floor, which is an open sun deck. To the front of the boat is the breakfast room, where you will find a spiral staircase leading up to the deck. The boat looks great in the sunshine, but can feel a little grim on a rainy day, especially when you can't use the sun deck. However, rainy days here are a great excuse to cuddle up to your loved one on one of the contemporary and well-appointed rooms that line the water.

    Food and drink 5.70 /10

    The breakfast room is located at the front of the boat and has a lovely view onto the water. The breakfast isn't too elaborate; with a few high tables and stools and a small buffet of muesli, breads and cheeses is what is on offer. Coffee is served out of a vending machine, which we found to be a bit of shame. There are also other types of vending machines selling snack food, which is convenient if you don't fancy heading outside to satisfy the urge for something sweet. The spiral staircase adds to the cosy atmosphere; it leads up to the deck, where guests are welcome to have breakfast in the summer.

    To know

    It's worth noting that there isn't very much here, which is ideal if you are keen on spending little time at the hotel. There are no safes in the rooms, but you can leave valuables at reception - however the safe here in tiny so forget cramming a laptop in there.

      The Marriott Copenhagen isn't the best hotel in the city with its bland interiors and average location , but for fans of the brand, the Marriott is suitable. Clean and conventional to its image, the advantage of the hotel is its large rooms and its lovely views over the nearby canal. Otherwise, the hotel is similar to others under the same umbrella - an impersonal atmosphere and a hectic lobby buzzing with elderly Italian and Spanish cruise tourists isn't the most appealing of atmospheres if you're looking for a bit of that sleek Copenhagen chic!

      • Location 7.5

      The four-star art-deco and slightly outdated Radisson Blu Scandinavia is one of two hotels under the same brand in the city. The other is the Arne Jacobsen-designed hotel in the city centre. The Radisson Blu Scandinavia is more of a business hotel, but with it being a little out of the city centre, it also welcomes a range of leisure guests. The hotel wouldn't be our first choice as it fairly bland, but the rooms are spacious and suitable for families. There are also some great views over the city and a good range of restaurants onsite.

      • Location 7.23

      The three star Danmark Hotel is one of the oldest hotels in the city and it shows. The entire hotel is in bad need of a refurbishment as the decor is extremely old fashioned. So if you are after a bit of old-school Denmark before Arne Jacobsen played his hand at design (so before the 1960s), then this is the place for you. Like most hotels in the Danish capital, there is no restaurant serving lunch and dinner although it does have a partnership with the establishment next door. The hotel is centrally located two minutes from Radhuspladsen from where you can walk to most places.

      Hotel Twenty-Seven is one of the trendiest hotels in the Danish capital, and although it looks good, the experience was extremely disappointing, especially the crowded and low-quality breakfast. The hotel's location is one of its advantages as it is situated right in the city centre close to small winding backstreets known as the 'Marais of Copenhagen' and it is here that you will find a plethora of trendy bars and restaurants. The contemporary Twenty-Seven is ideal for those of you looking for a stylish hang-out to explore the rest of the city from. The hotel otherwise welcomes a range of guests, from families to groups and couples.

      The 4-star Palace is Hotel located right on Radhuspladsen opposite the town hall and it is a Scandic Hotels property. The hotel is an Art Nouveau landmark in the city and is a listed building. It is immediately recognisable due to its original brick tower and its grand facade. The building dates back to 1908; its history is what gives it its charm, despite the newly refurbished contemporary rooms. The Palace is the most upmarket Scandic property and is a good all-rounder. It is ideal for a range of clientele, from couples looking to have a romantic weekend away to groups of families.

      Wakeup Copenhagen is a good budget option for Copenhagen (the second cheapest hotel in the city at the time of writing, July 2011). This two star establishment isn't much to look at with its simple clean lines and functional rooms, but we liked the minimalist look as an effort has been made to make this budget hotel look attractive - the design also reflects Danish design quite well. It is a good base to explore the rest of the city from, and with a few more facilities, it wouldn't be a hard to pull it up into the 3 star category. The hotel is located 10 minutes' walk from Central Station and is a large non-descript structure, where there isn't anything else but a breakfast room and rooms. The hotel is ideal for groups of friends and families. If you are looking to have a romantic getaway, then we wouldn't recommend the Wakeup as it isn't the cosiest or most intimate of places to stay.

      A Small Leading Hotel of the World, the Nimb Hotel is without doubt the best hotel in the city. A hard assertion to make about any hotel as it is rare to find a hotel that satisfies all the necessary requirements to make it a top hotel, but at the Nimb every detail has been studied closely to make it the perfect haven of peace and tranquillity whilst right at the heart of the city. Adjoined to Tivoli Gardens, the Nimb has a Michelin starred restaurant and an award-wining bar. The country home style rooms are luxurious whilst being extremely contemporary and comfortable. The hotel is perfect for a romantic break, and although it is rare to see children at the hotel, as it is in Tivoli Gardens itself, it could also be a good option for families. If you have the budget, there is no hotel that would come as highly recommended hotel as the Nimb.

      The newly-opened Tivoli Hotel is the product of a fusion of the hotelier Arp-Hansen and Tivoli Gardens. The result is a large scale themed city resort that caters for families with young children. Brimming full with colours, you will find the various themes of Tivoli Gardens used here too such as the lampposts, the harlequin pattern and so on. The hotel has been extremely well designed and despite its colours and theme-park look, it doesn't look tacky; it hasn't fallen into the Disneyworld category, so rest assured. It is a great place to take young children, if you're into that kind of thing. The highlight of the hotel for adults? The Sticks'n'Sushi Sky Lounge on the 12th floor, which gives a whole other dimension to the hotel.

      Not only is the Bella Sky the biggest hotel of the city, but it is also the largest hotel in Scandinavia. Although not located within the city centre, it is a hotel that is worth staying at if you are a huge fan of large spaces and vertical gardens. Guests staying here must have access to a car as there is nothing at all in the surroundings. The hotel has proved to be popular with ladies for its 17th floor strictly reserved for females. Fun with lots of space for children, the monumental shopping-centre -like hotel looks great as far as its interiors are concerned, but feels empty and lacks atmosphere. The Bella Sky would have been a huge hit if it were in the city centre.

      This four star hotel is one of the best hotels in the city. Spotless and extremely pleasant, the Kong Arthur is also well-located between Norrebro train station and the trendy area of Norrebro. The hotel is in a small courtyard just off a main road that lines the lake (that looks akin to a canal). The service is flawless as are the hotel facilities. The rooms are spacious and despite a more or less subtle Medieval theme running through the decor, they are pleasant to spend time in. The hotel isn't much of a family hotel as it is fairly quiet, but it doesn't discourage them. The clientele is mainly made up of businesspeople and couples of foreign tourists. The hotel is ideal if you need some time out a little way from the busiest areas of the city.

      The Radisson Blu Royal Hotel is one of the city's main landmarks and few five star hotels. If you know what you are looking out for, then you will be able to appreciate its unusual structure that was especially avant-garde back in sixties' Copenhagen, when the architecture was still extremely traditional. It was an extremely popular hotel that marked the beginning of the era of designer-extraordinaire, Arne Jacobsen, whose name you will probably hear time and time again as you visit the Danish capital. The hotel has recently been renovated but its 60s spark has somewhat died away. The hotel is still a good place to stay, with lots of Jacobsen furniture - his original suite has even been left just as it was and is now open for visits. The hotel is a good option for all kinds of guests, from couples to groups of families.

      The boutique Avenue Hotel was one of our favourite hotels in Copenhagen as it is the perfect all-rounder whether you're looking for a quiet getaway for a romantic weekend, or whether you want a pied-à-terre for exploring the city from with your family. The hotel's only major disadvantage is that it is located a few minutes' walk further out of the city than the other hotels we stayed at, but it is close to a metro station, Forum, making it easy to get to from the airport. The highlights of this quaint boutique hotel are its stylish yet low-key interiors and its terrace. Its cosy living room-cum-bar stocked with hand-picked isn't bad either. The Avenue is marked by Danish design, but it's a lot lower key than one might expect of Copenhagen, which gives the hotel a homely feel.

      The Alexandra Hotel doesn't give away much from its non-descript exterior and is easily missed when walking past. However, it's a real boutique design gem that only the most clued-up of design-fiends would know. Completely kitted out in original 30s and 50s pieces of furniture by some of the most renowned Danish designers like the well-known Arne Jacobsen, Finn Juhl, Hans J. Wegner and Borge Mogensen, makes for an impressive impact! And we haven't even started on the Verner Panton suite! The hotel is well-suited to guests looking for an authentic stay in the Danish capital, but isn't recommended for young children.

      Located in Islands Brygge, this is an impressive and different concept that provides a great escape from the madding crowds. STAY Copenhagen is a residential concept and the large stylish monochrome loft apartments on offer are one of the best bets in the city accommodation-wise if you don't want to be surrounded by tourist traps and you're looking for some of that minimalist Danish design. The hotel often welcomes celebrity guests looking for a low-key hideout in the city. Guests are given all the intimacy they wish but friendly and efficient staff is at hand to provide them with anything they wish. The views through the floor to ceiling, wall to wall, windows, of the lakes and the city on the opposite bank are the highlight. STAY Copenhagen is an über-contemporary and chic alternative to an average hotel room, where we felt right at home despite the size of each flat.
