My good lady booked this weekend trip, with cheap Easyjet flights and this boat-hotel. Upon initial inspection I was impressed with her choice.
When we arrived, I was extremely impressed with her choice. There are 12 private rooms, set on 2 floors, with a dining area at one end, and a roof garden on top. All of this is encompassed within a large boat.
The room is quite spacious, with an en-suite that has a heated floor - very useful on a very cold March nightime trip to the loo. The whole en-suite is a wet room, with shelves in the right places to hold your bottles of lotions and potions, toothbrush, etc. The shower is the rain type, with a large flat head covering you in anything from freezing to boiling water. The only quirks are the see-through door, and the clear glazed window into the shower area from the bedroom. These may seem very Scandinavian, but the door looks onto the passage, and the window covers most bits, depending upon your height.
The bed is big, and very comfortable, with a choice of soft or firm cushions to rest your head upon. There is only a small bedside shelf on one side, but we relocated the chair to act as a bedside for me. The lighting is more than adequate, with lots of options around the room.
The TV is located in a self contained unit with fancy sliding doors and units within, It has a Danish freeview box attached, which shows you enough channels and programs in English, from CSI to Frasier, and including some Premiership games, if you are so inclined.
Finally, there's the view.
There are floor to ceiling windows along one side, with a small juliet balcony / doorway, and a large window. You are sat across the river from the City, adjacent to the Hans Christian Andersen boulevard. So, you see the top of the towersat the Tivoli Gardens, the townhall tower, the new Library, church steeples, and a wealth of architecture that spans centuries.
The odd waterbus or tour boat may pass by, or the odd canoeist on a sunday morning, but they are the only things that will hinder the view.
Breakfast is good. This isn't a 5 star hotel with a wealth of choice, but there is more than enough choice, and more than enough quantity. You get yoghurts, breads, danish pastrys, salami, cheeses, lurpak, orange juice, tea and coffee. Oh, the coffee is from a machine, but it is more than adequate, and available 24 hours a day for you to just come and get a brew.
My wife's only worry was about feeling seasick. You will clearly see the tide rushing in, and out, and you will see the waves from the passing water buses head towards the boat-hotel, but it takes a lot of determination to actually see that the boat is moving at all.
At around £140 a night it might seem expensive, but it is worth every single penny. My only concern now is that with only 12 rooms, it may be difficult to book next time we visit Wonderful, Wonderful Copenhagen.

Room Tip: There is a reasonably tight spiral staircase that leads to the upstairs rooms, so if you are unsteady on your feet, or take large suitcases, it may be better to ask for a lower room.

If you are looking for a cookie-cutter hotel, please do not stay here. If you are for a unique experience with a bit of an adventure, then the CPH living is an excellent choice. It is a houseboat with two floors of hotel rooms. The rooms are what you would expect at a good hotel: OK size (for Copenhagen...), bathroom etc.. Clean and with hard wood floors. It's the houseboat location that makes this so unforgettable. With a bit of a wind, you will feel your room slightly move along. And you will enjoy a beautiful view of Copenhagen: seeing the old town with the tower of city hall.

Breakfast is simple but you can enjoy it on the sun deck or the little vestibule next to it (if it is too cold to eat outside) with an even more amazing view.

Staff is very laid-back and incredibly friendly.

The only thing I could criticize is the shower: It is a miracle in a way that it turns the whole bathroom into mess although there is hardly any water coming out. Anyway...

The location of the CPH living is good: a ten-minute walk across the bridge into the city, five minutes or so to the Christianshavn metro station.

A true treat for a wonderful stay in Copenhagen!

Room Tip: Pick a room on the lower level if you are afraid of becoming seasick due to the boat rocking slightly when it is windy.

Cool boathotel with excellent view. Short walk from Christianshavn metro and the city centre. The staff was very friendly. A few details pulled the score down from top; tv was useless because of technical noise and the bed was too hard. The value is probably much better in the summertime because there is a nice rooftop terrace.

This hotel (boat) was an excellent choice for something a little different for your stay in Copenhagen. The boat is easy to find, and not too far from the major tourist areas.

The room was a good size with everything you need - it is a little like sleeping in an "Ikea Shoowroom". Shower was excellent, hot water and a good size.

Breakfast was basic and is nice for the view down the river, but i would suggest saving your apertite and visiting a local cafe for the "Brunch".

Staff were helpful; booking our cab and holding our luggage etc.

A good alternative to a normal box hotel.

A very unique and special experience for sure! The boat is tiny so keep that in mind but that being said...The room itself was bigger then I expected. By no means large but room for 2 people and your bags. The shower was actually one of the bigger I have seen in Europe with excellent water pressure. Not a ton of privacy though so I probably won't recommend it to people not super comfortable around each other! Small but filling breakfast buffet, mainly breads and yummy danish! Breakfast can be eaten upstairs on the deck (up a spiral staircase). It was too cold to spend a ton of time on the deck but I imagine its lovely in the summer time.
Our luggage was lost and the hotel staff was very helpful in letting us use their phone and helping translate.
The only downside is the location. During the summer it wouldn't have been an issue but in the colder months the 20-30 min walk to downtown seemed a bit long. It's maybe 10 min to Christiania. But the overall experience made up for the location!
*I was 7 months pregnant during our visit and had been concerned about possible rocking of the boat but it was totally a non-issue.

Room Tip: All rooms face the water
