The apartment looks exactly like how it is in the pictures. It's simply amazing with a stunning view of the harbour. Ivan & Lars were fantastic hosts, ready to help us with any questions that we might have. We'll definitely want to stay here again if we ever were to visit copenhagen again. :)
It is a beautiful modern apartment, with a wonderful water view. We enjoyed staying here. The bedroom is on the small side, but the fantastic balcony makes up for it. Ivan is a thoughtful, considerate and helpful host.
Ivan was a wonderful host and the apartment we stayed in was beautifully furnished and in a good location with a fantastic view. Ivan is polite and considerate and went out of his way to help us. Certainly recommended. We will be back.
Ivan and Lars were great hosts; I enjoyed getting to know them. I had plenty of privacy when I wanted it, and I also enjoyed pleasant conversations with them that enhanced my experience of visiting Copenhagen. Their apartment is beautiful, clean, and comfortable, though it's a bit of a walk to things. They also provided excellent information in advance (how to find them) and during the visit (instructions, directions, and suggestions).
Staying at Lars & Ivan's place was the highlight of our time in Copenhagen. The building is beautiful inside and out - the pictures are accurate, but it's even more impressive in person! Their apartment is extremely clean and the guest room is cozy with a great view. There are good public transport options nearby - a bus stop and a water ferry just outside the building, and a short walk to the train station. It's also not too far to walk into the central part of the city, but we enjoyed taking the boat, so ended up doing that most days. All of that would be enough to make this a great place to stay, but it was even better for the chance to get to know Lars and Ivan. We met Ivan when we first arrived and he was very helpful in getting us a map and pointing out some of the highlights to see in the city. Then, on our last night in Copenhagen, we ended up staying up talking and with them well into the evening, watching the sun set over the water, the lights at the Tivoli, and fireworks over the city center. It was a wonderful night and one of my favorite memories from Denmark.
We spent a great time in Copenhaguen in Lars and Ivan amazing apartment. They are really nice and helpful, and the room was perfect for a good rest with amazing views and a nice breakfast. For us, it was a perfect base for discovering the city. Also, the architecture of the place is unique and remarkable.
Without a doubt, we can recommend this place! :)

This is our best B&B stay so far in Europe. It was an awesome experience, apartment was luxury as seen in the picture. Ivan & Lars are very helpful with provide most info needed about the city & also great host to leave you own privacy in the apartment. Island Brygge & surrounding area is a nice place, it is a relaxing walk to the city centre with beautiful view on modern + historical building along the harbour. You get to explore another side of Copenhagen. We enjoy stay in Ivan & Lars apartment and love Copenhagen, we will come back again :)
