About This Listing
Central two room apartment, comfortably fits three people. Fully furnished with a nice kitchen with everything you need; fridge, dishwasher etc. Groceries, cafe's, public transportation, a bakery, restaurants, bike rental, everything is close by.
You are renting a full apartment with everything included. I live there myself and rent it out whenever I am gone for some time. Therefore everything will be there for sleeping and living.
The apartment has a nice living room with underfloor heating, an electric piano (not available right now), a high class stereo and a 32" TV that can be used for watching movies etc. No cable TV.
The bedroom has a good king size double bed.
The kitchen has everything that would be expected in a kitchen where somebody lives; a big fridge w/freezer, a dishwasher, a gas stove and of cause normal kitchen equipment.
The bathroom is quite small, but what of it; are you going to use your whole stay on showering?
Since I normally live in the apartment myself the shelf space is somewhat used. You are free to use any free space.
Everything you find in the fridge you can use as you please, same thing with the spices and any other food.
Interaction with Guests
This is not an actual bed and breakfast with breakfast served every morning. You'll have to go shop yourself, but hey, that means that you will get it exactly as you want it.
The apartment is placed in the neighborhood of Copenhagen called Nørrebro (literally north bridge), close to the center of the neighborhood.
Within a two minutes walk you will find three grocery stores with opening hours from 7 in the morning to 12 in the night, at least three bars, the coin laundry, cafes, flower shops, a hairdresser, bakery, kebab place, Moroccan restaurant, pizza place, butcher and a fish store.
Four minutes walk from the apartment is a bike rental, where you can rent a bike for a day for EU8/DKK60.
Something about the neighborhood
Over the last couple of decades Nørrebro has evolved from being a working class area into one of the city's hottest quarters. If you want to shop for clothes, exotic food, bric-a-brac or antiques – the multicultural Nørrebro is the place to be.
Vibrant, colourful, casual and young at heart. Nørrebro is a lively area of Copenhagen. You will find trendy bars and fashionable designer shops next door to dodgy dive bars and cheap kebab places. If you are into small design shops, head for Elmegade or Jægersborggade, and if you like antiques Ravnsborggade is the place to go. At Sankt Hans Torv and the streets around it you have several choices for dinner and drinks. In the nearby Cemetery (Assistens Kirkegård) you will find the graves of people like the great danish poet H. C. Andersen and H. C. Ørsted, the great danish scientist, who discovered electromagnetism. The Cemetery is 10 minutes walk from the apartment.
Public transportation is literally a 3 minutes walk from the apartment. From there, the central station (Københavns Hovedbanegård) is 21 minutes away with the 6A bus. The city Copenhagen center (Nørreport) is 11 minutes away with the same bus. The bus leaves every seven minutes.
Where ever you want to go, look up your journey at the website "rejseplanen" which you will easily find online.
If you are traveling by car, you'll find free parking space just outside the apartment.
Other Things to Note
If you are three guests, the third person can choose between a fold out mattress and the fold out sleeping couch. Towels and bedsheets will be provided for all guests.
The apartment is a non-smoking no pets allowed place. Of cause I expect everything to be as it was when I left, when I come back to the apartment. Anything found missing or broken will be covered by the security deposit. So will the cleaning, if the apartment is left dirty. I have pictures of everything so that no doubt can exist from either side.
We never met Hans, but he did provide us with all the information we needed to find and access the apartment in the pdf document that accompanies the listing. We really appreciated his detailed description of the neighborhood and places to visit in Copenhagen as well as the precise details about getting into the apartment and using it. Even though we'd been forewarned by others' comments about the bathroom, it was indeed tiny--and wet from the shower water that hadn't drained from the previous guest. There appeared to be black mold in the corners and crevices of the bathroom. However, we liked having all the space to spread out in the living room, kitchen, and bedroom and being on the ground floor in the residential apartment building in a neighborhood we could explore on our own. One early evening, we found the cemetery where Hans Christian Anderson is buried - delightful walk not too far away, and getting around Copenhagen from the apartment was very easy with the bus stops so close by.
Lovely flat in a great neighbourhood. Very helpful information from Hans as to how to get around in Copenhagen etc.
es war total unkompliziert für uns zu buchen und in Kontakt zu treten. Die Wohnung und Wegbeschreibung sowie Infomaterial über die Stadt waren präzise und super beschrieben.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, es war alles da, was man braucht.
Die Wohnung liegt absolut zentral und schön gelegen, von dort aus kommt man schnell überall hin. Um die Ecke gibt es Supermärkte, eine Bäckerei, etc...
War alles super.
Хорошая квартира. Всё соответствует описанию. Очень удобно организована информация по заселению, заселение и выселение. Не надо ни с кем встречаться и никого ждать). WiFi. Месторасположение. Всё достаточно чисто и удобно! Единственная проблема - в душе плохо сделан слив, нет наклона пола в сторону сливного отверстия, грязная вода сама не сходит полностью, нужно подталкивать скребком)
В целом - хорошо. Рекомендую!
Hans' place was nice and cosy in the hip part of town. A lot of facilities are nearby which was great. Hans was very helpful and quick with responding to enquiries.
The toilet/shower was a little unexpected being connected into one.
About the Host, Hans Frederik
If mankind is to survive we must create a renaissance based on the humanist ideas from ancient Greece - Plato, from Chris, from the Florentine renaissance - Nicholas of Cusa, from the intention of the founding fathers of the US - Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, from the German Classical period - Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Schiller, Riemann etc. The purpose of my life is to help catalyze that. Right now I study Latin as to be able to translate Cusa and Kepler into danish.
