About this listing
Charming apartment located in the very heart of medieval Copenhagen, complete with bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, dining area and living room.
The bedroom comes with a queen size bed, closets and a small sofa. The bathroom is complete with toilet, sink and shower. The kitchen is fully equipped and comes with all essential kitchenware to cook a proper dinner.
The living room has a comfortable sleeper sofa which is made up in case of 3 or 4 person occupancy. In the center of the apartment is a large fireplace.
The building was built in 1828 and has been listed since 1964. The apartment is on the ground floor – there are 5 steps from street level to the apartment door.
Perfect for 1 or 2 people, fine for 3, possible for 4 – although a tight fit.
The apartment is equipped with cable-TV as well as broadband Internet accessible though either Wi-Fi or cable. All necessary bed linen and towels are provided for free.
Interaction with Guests
Nobody currently lives in the apartment on a day-to-day basis – you'll have it all to yourself.
The surrounding area is very nice with narrow streets, lots a small cozy shops, restaurants and cafés. Rundetårn (Round Tower) and Christiansborg (Parliament) is less than a quarter mile away, and every major tourist attraction is less than a mile away – well almost every; The Little Mermaid is 1.3 miles away :-)
Other Things to Note
The bedroom has a queen size bed as mentioned in the description. This is provided for 1 or 2 person occupancy. In case of 3 or 4 person occupancy the sleeper sofa in the living room will be made up as either a single (3 person) or double (4 person) bed. If you travel 2 people together and need separate beds, you have to book for 3 people. We have to move furniture around to make up the sleeper sofa, and simply can't provide this service at the 2 person rate. We hope you understand :-)
Check in and check out times are flexible if no other guests are arriving/leaving on the same dates as you. If overlaps occur, check in is after 2:00pm and check out is at noon as stated to provide sufficient time for cleaning the apartment.
No cleaning fee is charged, and guests are not required to do any special cleaning. We do however ask you to keep the apartment tidy, and not to leave large amounts of dirty dishes for our poor maid to clean :-)
You're welcome to use the fireplace. Please mention at check-in though for proper guidance in opening the chimney damper as to not risk carbon monoxide poisoning.
We hebben, mede dank zij de beschrijving die we toegestuurd hebben gekregen, het appartement vanaf de luchthaven goed kunnen vinden. We werden opgewacht door Carl en hij liet ons het appartement zien. Het is een ruim appartement met alles wat je nodig hebt. De bedden sliepen heel erg fijn. Er stonden zelfs verse bloemen in vazen.
Het ligt midden in de stad en dicht bij allemaal gezellige pleintjes waar je lekker kunt eten en drinken.
Het is een ideale uitvalsbasis om het mooie Kopenhagen te bezoeken.
Pre-arrival Carl and Christian gave excellent advice on how to get from the airport to the flat which was most welcome. Carl greeted us personally on arrival at the flat and offered some good advice in terms of the surrounding area. The flat itself was as advertised so everything was as expected. Great little place to use as a base for seeing Copenhagen. Would definitely stay here again. Excellent value for money.
We arrived at this Copenhagen apartment at the much-appreciated and agreed-upon early arrival of 12:15, at which time we understood that we were going to be able to drop our bags while the apartment was being cleaned. (The previous renter was not out until noon that day.) The building was under construction and was completely wrapped in scaffolding and plastic, making it impossible to recognize it from the exterior pictures provided in the app. After sorting out the location and a slight mix-up in communication with Christian and Carl, we were finally able to get our bags into the apartment at 13:15, which was still earlier than the listed time. Lucky for us it was a warm day and there was a pleasant, sunny little plaza in which we could wait right behind the building. It turned out that by the time we got in, Carl had the space ready. He got us all set up and we were on our way to three days in that truly amazing city. This apartment has great potential and is a good value with its best feature being the location. It is surrounded by restaurants and, of course, the lovely little plaza right behind the building. We could easily walk to all the great city sites: the palace, the cathedral, museums, the Green Light District, the Stroget (shopping) and some of the best restaurants in the city. There are a few improvements needed in the apartment. The apartment could benefit from a good cleaning (especially the bathroom) and a few upgrades to wiring and plumbing. The wiring was a bit loose and shaky and there were not enough free outlets for all three of us to plug in our electronics - and none at all in the bedroom. The smell of sewer gas in the bathroom was worrisome and possibly dangerous, in addition to the lack of an anti-scald valve in the shower. Also the front door locking/unlocking situation is a problem that could be fatal in a fire, as it is difficult and clumsy to get the key to work. A smaller complaint is that the towels are very rough and scratchy, as were the comforter covers and pillowcases in the bedroom. We had a few other issues… The apartment is on the first floor and looks out on the street through inoperable windows, in the living room and bedroom. The first day was very warm so that contributed to the first problem we encountered: the apartment was hot and stuffy and we needed to air it out. The back windows (in the kitchen and dining area) open onto the closed-in garbage/recycling and bike storage area but they did allow for some airflow. The scaffolding and plastic that wrapped the front of the building only slightly blocked our first floor street view but didn't help muffle the construction and street noise. We happened to arrive on a national holiday (a Friday) so the club across the street went into full swing that...
Our staying was great. We would like our next visit in Copenhagen to be there as well . The place is exactely as promised : cozy, nice decorated, not overcrowded. ..The owner helped us with every detail, including the luggage in our last day there. Good choice for every taste.
This was an amazing apartment in the middle of everything; shopping, restaurants and historical sites, all within walking distance. Our host was great and even had coffee, milk and juice ready for us after an overseas flight - greatly appreciated. He was extremely helpful in getting us a taxi to the cruise ship. Would definitely stay here again.
Clean with full kitchen, all essentials including nice extras like umbrellas and a hairdryer. Even fresh flowers! The location was fantastic for walking the city. We were close to everything, including good restaurants. The one important thing to note is that there is a club across the street that is open until 4 AM and was quite loud on Friday and Saturday night and made it difficult to sleep.
Perfect location, right off the Stroget! Carl and Christian were both very helpful and kind. Spacious and very comfortable bed.
About the Host, Carl Johan
Retired flight attendant turned cafe and restaurant owner. I own a handful of properties in Copenhagen and decided to rent one of them out through Airbnb. So far it's been a positive experience. I'm quite busy most of the time, and rely on my resource person Christian to take care of bookings and email-communication for me. So if a message from me is signed by Christian, you know you're talking to him.
