About this listing
85 square meter penthouse on the 5th floor in a historic building, overlooking the harbor with a direct view to the Opera house on the other side of the water. The Queen's castle, Amalienborg, is the next door neighbor.
Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2013. Divers jumped 27m into the water from the Opera house roof.
A converted drying loft in a historic building, this 85 square meter penthouse on the 5th floor overlooks the harbor with a direct view to the Opera house on the other side of the water. The Queen's castle, Amalienborg, is the next door neighbor. Extremely quiet in spite of the super central location.
Amenities include own balcony, broadband Wi-Fi, Mac computer hooked up to a 46" Sony Bravia flat-screen TV and stereo, double bed, open kitchen and bathroom with shower. Mint condition!
The area is filled with quality restaurants, cafés, bars, night clubs, stores, auction houses, art galleries and much more. The Royal Danish Theatre and the atmospheric Nyhavn with its sailing boats and old houses are literally just five minutes away.
If you stroll North, Copenhagen's historic Citadel (Kastellet) is a ten minute walk along the waterfront. An old fortress, it is the oldest functioning barracks in the world and a green and beautiful place for a walk. The Little Mermaid is also within walking distance if you feel like hanging out with Japanese tourists :-)
You'll have the apartment all to yourself.
As a bonus, there is an amazing rooftop "terrace" immediately above the apartment overlooking the city and harbor. Please note: if you suffer from vertigo, the rooftop is probably not for you :-) It has no railings, but the view is absolutely stunning!
Interaction with Guests
I'll welcome you in the apartment when you arrive, give you the keys, and help you get settled in. When you're comfortable and all your questions have been answered, I'll take my leave and usually not be back until after you've checked out. Of course, you can always reach me on my cellphone, email, or message me on Airbnb if you need anything at all.
Kongens Nytorv Metro station is just a 10 minute walk away, and there are bus lines nearby to take you anywhere you want to go.
Hop on one of the yellow harbor busses to get to the Opera house across the water, or simply to enjoy cruising on the harbor.
There is no smoking indoors, but you are welcome to step out on the balcony and draw a breath of "fresh air" there if you need to :-)
Feel free to use my Mac computer to surf the web, listen to music from iTunes or watch films. It is hooked up to the flat-screen TV and stereo.
Dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and hand iron are complementary.
Stefan was easy to communicate with and responded to questions etc very promptly. He was available to welcome me and orient me to the apartment and its amenities.
The apartment was beautiful with wonderful views and very easy to feel at home in. had all facilities needed for a comfortable stay. I felt very safe and comfortable.
It was close to transport, to shopping, some museums, parks and had a view of the Opera House across the water! I would definitely stay here again!! The only noise I experienced was fireworks one night with music from the Opera House - I had an excellent view of this!!
The only thing to consider before staying here is whether you can manage a lot of stairs - if you have any mobility issues, the stairs might be a significant issues; however, I was OK and found my fitness improved!!
I had a wonderful stay which was enhancced by Stefan and his beautiful apartment. :) Very happy with experience.
Great place and host. The location is close to everything. The apartment is clean.
The only negatives are a lack of air condition and blinds on windows, both which are not a big issue except that (1) it was hot the days I was there, however, I am told this is not typical. The days are long and evenings very short in the summer! As such, if you like to sleep in the dark take a mask. The windows are great, except when the sun rises at 5 in the morning.
Overall, great place and would recommend it.
We had a great time at Stefan's apartment! The location was amazing. We could easily walk everywhere in Copenhagen. Access to public transportation was likewise very close by. We also absolutely loved taking strolls by the water and to the Kastellet down the street.
The apartment itself was just as described. It was very clean and comfortable. The view from the roof was fantastic. Stefan was also kind enough to give us some recommendations before our trip and was very responsive to our emails in general. It was an absolutely wonderful stay.
Un apartamento encantador en un lugar privilegiado. La estancia ha sido perfecta e inolvidable. Estamos muy agradecidos a Stephan por todos sus consejos. Nos ha hecho sentir como en casa.
We've had a wonderful stay at Stefan's apartment. Everything was like in the description. He was also a very good and friendly host that likes to share his favorite spots. I can truly recommend this apartment. Thumbs up! Thanks Stefan.
Stefan is a great host. He was very clear with his instructions - where and when to meet, etc. He met me when I arrived, even helped carry my (heavy) bag up the five flights of stairs to the sixth-floor "penthouse" -- I'd call it an attic apartment.
It is a big, well equipped, one-room apartment with spectacular views -- even a (small) sunny deck. Great location!
Stefans apartment is wonderful! Its really spacious, with great views! Stefan is also a very helpful host.
