My cosy, light and fresh apartment is the perfect point of departure for your Copenhagen explorations. Located in central and quiet Frederiksberg, you are close to all the precints of Copenhagen. I hope you will like my little home.
You are going to live in the heart of Frederiksberg in a 1st floor apartment overlooking the garden and a private street. Your favorite precincts, Nørrebro, Vesterbro and the CIty Centre is within walking distance, while still being able to enjoy a good night's sleep in a quiet, gentrified neighbourhood.
Copenhagen is a crazy little hub of things to do, and I've packed the Guidebook with little surprise places, which I hope you will like.
The apartment consists of the open kitchen-dining area, facing south towards the garden, a bathroom and your bedroom. The fully furnished bedroom has linen, duvets, pillows and towels and the shower is warm.
The building is from the early 1900s, and the building code asks that we respect the neighbours and not make noise after midnight in the weekends. This means that you can expect a nice, quiet sleep when you come home, but it also means that there should be quiet after midnight.
There is a laundry in the basement. It operates with tokens. Please let me know in advance if you expect to be wanting to do laundry, so I can get the tokens ready for you. It's 5 dkk per token.
I keep a third room, my room, locked. I will be away from the apartment while you are here, but I will meet you, give you keys and a quick tour of the place. If I for some reason is not able to meet you in person, I will make sure a friend of mine can introduce you to the neighbourhood and the apartment.
Interaction with Guests
I suggest we keep in touch via AirBnB, and when you book, you will get my mobile number, where you can contact on WhatsApp.
Please email or text if you have any questions.
Frederiksberg C is a quiet, green part of Copenhagen. You are centrally placed to reach all the precincts in Copenhagen, and the neighbourhood itself is quiet, green and nice. HC Ørstedsvej has some nice delicatesse stores and the Emmery's Bakery down the corner has excellent coffee. For pastry, I recommend that traditional Danish Bakery down HC Ørstedsvej (Guidebook) for some rich, buttery Danish :-)
To get around, there is a GOBike stand at Forum station. You can rent the bike using your credit card and it comes with a map of Copenhagen and places, where you can park the bike. The website is (website hidden) forward slash en.
The Garden of Eden (Guidebook) is just a few minutes walk away and is a secluded (secret) garden of Frederiksberg. It's a nice place for a book or a run in the morning, if you are in the mood for that? The lakes consist of 4-5 lakes (depending on how you count) and they are a total of ca. 6 km - makes for a nice run.
From the airport:
Both metro and trains run from the airport and takes about 15-20 mins to the city. Tickets can be bought at the airport ticket centre, after you have exited the baggage area.
You can take the train to the Central Train Station if you are going to explore the city before meeting me - or you can take the metro to Forum station, which is about a 10 minute walk to my apartment. The metro is the preferred way to travel, if you are coming directly from the airport to my apartment.
Around my apartment, Buses 30 and 3A run on the major roads, use the the journeyplanner website to get easy instructions on how to best get around.
I advise everyone to get a bike while you are here. With the Baisikle (see Guidebook) you can book a bike even before you arrive in Copenhagen.
At the airport, you can also buy the 72 hour City Pass which lets you travel freely within zones 1,2,3 and 4 (the airport is in Zone 4, and Copenhagen is in zones 1 and 2). This is a bargain if the weather may not be with you, or if you want to get around without bikes.
Other Things to Note
I update my calendar throughout the year, but it will rarely be possible to book my apartment more than three months in advance. If you would like to book my apartment on certain dates that are not yet made availabe in the calendar, just send me a message, we might be able to work something out :-)
For a cheap way to go out, try the Earlybird website. It's in Danish and you need to choose the city København (Copenhagen). If you can say how many you are, you can book on the day, get 33% discount on selected restaurants. Restaurant Fabian and L'Eduction Nationale are in the Guidebook.
To rent bikes - go to Baisikli, or get the full range of suggestions from VisitCopenhagen.
We cannot help being a bit particular about some things in our homes. I ask that you bear these simple requests in mind. Thank you so much.
*Please take off your shoes when entering the apartment to protect the floor.
*If you spill on the floor, please use hot water immediately to avoid the stain to remain.
House rules in general
*No noise after midnight in weekends
*Please respect neighbours when using the staircases as the noise travels well in an old building
*You cannot smoke inside. Please go outside and remove any cigaret butts from the ground.
*Pets are not allowed.
*Please use care with kitchen utencils. Pots and Pans are Teflon based, so no sharp tools can be used as it ruins the teflon base. Feel free to put everything into the dishwasher except wooden kitchen utencils, the tea and coffee pot.
*The heat is monitored by a thermostat. The radiator monitors the heat in the room and adjusts the activity of the radiator accordingly. Level 2 on the thermostat is 20 degrees C. If you open the window and leave the thermostat to 2, it will increase the activity because of the cold wind coming in. Please close the thermostat when you open the windows.
We had a great stay in Kathrine's beautiful apartment! She was very welcoming, quick to respond to any questions we had and made arrangements so that we could access the apartment at a time that suited us well. The apartment was located in a calm yet central area close to the inner city. We would recommend anyone going to Copenhagen to stay in Kathrine's apartment!
If you're coming to Copenhagen, stay at Katherine's place! Not only is the apartment itself the epitome of Scandi chic, Kathrine herself is a bubbly wonderful host full of great suggestions and tips. Just look at her itinerary - she knows what's cool in the area. Five stars Kathrine thanks for having us!
Communication went smooth with Kathrine, and she gave us a warm welcome! The apartment was exactly like the pictures: light, cosy and comfortable. It was easy to get around, close to the metro, where also bikes can be hired, or on foot to the centre and other nice areas. Recommanded!
We had a great long weekend at this cosy apt. The apt is located nicely nearby the lakes and the center. Very practical as well with a bus stop and a gobike spot nearby. Went for a run around the lakes nearby, ... Thanks a lot Kathrin for your hospitality!
Un accueil très chaleureux de Kathrine, dans un appartement très agréable, et très bien équipé, tout à fait conforme aux photos et descriptif dans un quartier très calme mais proche de tout. Très bien situé, proche d'un arrêt de métro (Forum) et d'un site de location de vélos électriques, très pratiques pour se rendre au centre ville.
Seul petit bémol, l'immeuble ancien et ses planchers sont très sonores. L'ensemble des habitants semble toutefois faire attention à ne pas faire trop de bruit et cela ne nous a donc pas trop dérangé.
Nous recommandons vraiment ce lieu !!!
Lovely apartment, great location, fairly central, a few minutes walk to closest metro station. Friendly host, very helpful with suggestions, prior to trip and whilst we were there. Would recommend staying here to anyone
Excellent accueil de la part de Katherine.
L'appartement est très agréable et bien équipé.
Le quartier est sympathique, à 10 minutes du centre ville.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour.
Hey! I love travelling, chilling out in the sun, watching people pass by. I love to have visitors and hope that you will like this place, I call home: Copenhagen.
I work to live, and love my friends and family (foreign and domestic). My home reflects my personality: Keeping it simple, keeping it cosy and warm!
Use this place as a nice, quiet base for your explorations.
I've been studying and living in Copenhagen for the past 11 years, so I'd love to meet up with you when you first arrive to give you a personal intro to the guidebook, which keeps expanding!
