Floating hotel opens for business in Paris

OFF, France’s first floating hotel, has docked in Paris between the Charles de Gaulle Bridge and the Austerlitz viaduct in the southwest of the city.

Guests who manage to locate the purpose-built barge can check in to a choice of 54 rooms and four suites, and can enjoy a bar serving cocktails and tapas, a plunge pool, a marina and a 400 square metre summer terrace.

The hotel was designed by Gérard Ronzatti from Seine Design, and contains "elegant zinc roofs that slant skywards, while a central glass ceiling lets natural light into the heart of the vessel".

The project designer, developer and shareholder was Citysurfing, a French firm that offers "Smart Floating Solutions".

Prices start from €160 ($177) a night.
