Islands Brygge 79
2300 Copenhagen, Denmark
Apartment hotel Stay, located on Copenhagen's harborfront, is perhaps the coolest new hotel in town, and boasts the award-winning architecture and decor of HAY-design, known for its cool, minimalist Scandinavian style. With 180 1-3 room serviced apartments of varying sizes as well as meeting rooms and event space spread over seven floors, Stay is the business hotel for the modern, independent traveler; apartments have their own kitchen and laundry facilities and there is an organic supermarket, gourmet bakery and restaurant within the complex. Opened in 2009-10, Stay has given new purpose to a building previously used as studio space by Copenhagen's young artistic community (called A-House) and many of the artworks from that time have been allowed "to stay".
