About this listing
Located in the heart of Copenhagen's most vibrant neighborhood, Nørrebro, this home offers a locals view of the city. The area is buzzing with life and is an attraction in itself, but you're never more than 15 minutes of biking from the center. The flat is perfect for a couple, but can comfortably fit up to 5 people. We're new to hosting on Airbnb so we lowered the price, and we hope to host kind responsible people. Stay here, and we promise a very unique place to call home while in Copenhagen.
Our apartment is very cozy and offers a great opportunity to feel at home while traveling. The apartment has windows facing east and west, so the bedroom is flooded with light in the morning, and so is the living room in the afternoon. We have an amazing bed, fast wireless internet, a big TV, comfy fold out couch, nice kitchen, big bathroom, french balcony, quiet neighbors, a hammock for up to two and Phillips Hue Lights. There is an elevator directly from the street and the doors are wide enough for a wheelchair.
We'll stow away our most personal stuff in the basement or the bedroom closet, so there won't be any confusion as to whether you can use "that thing that we just left standing there". There's a vacuum cleaner in the closet and some tools which you can use if you need to, and of course all the kitchen stuff like spices, flour and pasta you can just go ahead and use.
Interaction with guests
We rent our place when we are traveling, but we'll leave a trusted friend in charge of the interactions, who you can reach out to if needed. And or course in case anything happens and we need to know you can always get directly in touch with us through email or the like.
Nørrebro has seen a complete makeover during the past 6 years with the urban development of the "Superkilen" park strip that cuts through its northern part. Out apartment is located right in the very hot spot of this project, neighboring the Red Square, The Black Market and The Green Park. It's a wonderful place to hang out during the summer. As most Danes don't get much sun during the winter, there's abundance of sundrunk happy people of all ages BBQing, playing chess, skateboarding and enjoying the summer as best as they can. Less than 10 minutes of walking will get you to the Jægersborggade street which is famous for its many hip bars, cafés, restaurants and independent boutiques. Walking a little further you'll get to the Assistens kirkegården park/graveyard (get used to the idea), where you can stroll around and look for H. C. Andersens grave.
Bus 5A og 350S (which is faster) takes you right down to the city center. Personally, we would, however, recommend renting a bike in a local bikeshop (they're everywhere) for 50-100 kr. per day and taking advantage of the fact that biking is much faster and fun, and can get you anywhere in less than 20 minutes. Uber works extremely well, and taxis are available on 4x35.
Other things to note
The apartment building is originally meant for the elderly, but due to lack of demand many young people (students) were allowed to move in. It is expected of residents to respect the presence of the elderly by not making too much noise after bed-time. In our experience this is, however, not so much an annoyance as it is a relief, since many Copenhagen apartments can be quite thin-walled and noisy.
No shoes inside the house, please.
PhD student at Copenhagen University interested in people and patterns. I am a son, brother, uncle, friend, employee, boyfriend and kind stranger. I like to travel and get lost, make new friends, ride my skateboard and learn new things. I also like to do none of the above and just stay home and binge watch random Netflix episodes with my girlfriend.
