About This Listing
Nice room (18 sq/m) in a cool, Nordic flat in the Frederiksberg neighbourhood. Child friendly. Free bicycles for guests. Ten minutes to the city centre by bicycle or bus. 15 by metro.
(NOTE: the listing says maximum 4 people - but that means two kids and the parents. Not 3 or 4 adults. The room is otherwise perfect for couples or visitors travelling alone.)
A lovely room in a large CHILD-FRIENDLY flat available for visitors to Copenhagen. Ten minutes from the city centre by bicycle - on safe, separated cycle tracks of course - in the Frederiksberg neighbourhood. Casa Copenhagenize - being the home of the "Danish Bicycle Ambassador" - provides you with free bicycles, too. That'll save you 100 kroner a day right there on rentals.
Free wireless, no television (listed as a GOOD thing) and the tips you need for our city. There is coffee and tea for you to enjoy and there is a supermarket 50 m from here if you need to buy stuff for breakfast or whatnot.
Every other week my kids live here, and they're lovely. It's great for them to meet people from around the world. It's a casual environment here at Casa Copenhagenize so be open-minded.
The bedroom faces a busy street, but the windows are new and drown out the sound. The listing says "smoking allowed" but it presupposes that you'll lean out the open window or pop out onto the back stairs.
It might help if you know my Copenhagen Cycle Chic or Copenhagenize blogs but it's not a requirement. If you do, we can have a chat about Copenhagen as a cycling city and urban planning and whatnot. I can also fill you on the nightlife which, in many cases, is more important. As well as museums, architecture, etc.
Close to the Metro (600 m) for getting there from the airport as well as a major bus route (3 m).
If you have kids, let us know, too. There is an small extra bed in the room and we have a mattress if you have two kids.
The bed can also become two single beds if you like. Just let me know in advance.
Also, if you have small kids, we have a three-wheeled cargo bike for you to use if you need it. It's usually available, but let me know if you need it.
Wifi, bathroom, kitchen, bicycles.
Interaction with Guests
I'm usually around when I have guests, but I may be out travelling on business on occasion. I'm happy to offer any and all tips on visiting the city.
The Frederiksberg neighbourhood is quiet and cool. It is a ten minute ride by bicycle to the city centre and the neighbourhoods of Nørrebro and Vesterbro. There is metro and buses, as well.
Two major bus lines and ten minute walk from the Metro. But hey... this is Copenhagen. Ride a bicycle.
Rules are boring. We prefer guidelines. At our place you are allowed to swear, slouch on the sofa, yawn, scratch your bum, take a long shower, whatever.
Be nice, be civilised, be cool. We try to be.
We have a casual casa and we like this casualness to be extended when we have guests. You're welcome to use the fridge for your own stuff and you're welcome to make your own dinner in the kitchen.
Just make yourself at home.
Très bon séjour, nous avons été reçu chaleureusement (Mickael parle très bien français!), l'appartement était propre et cosy, fidèle aux photos et au descriptif. Nous nous sommes à la fois sentis entourés (nombreux conseils, disponibilité) et libre d'aller et venir en toute discrétion. L'appartement est très bien situé/métro et très accessible en vélo pour tous les points stratégiques de la ville. Et cela était très agréable que les vélos nous soient prêtés. Nous remercions Mickael! Adresse à conseiller les yeux fermés :-)
We really enjoy Copenhagen, Mikael's house suit perfectly to us. It takes a few minutes bike ride from the city center. The bikes he provide us were perfect, we even made it up to the Louisiana museum =) The house style was awesome, is even cooler than what you get from the pics. Mikael is an easy cool person, and we enjoy learning about his pasion for bikes which we completely share. Definetly we recommend to stay at his place.
Mikael's room was just perfect for us! We are a family with two kids, 10 and 6 years old. The room was quite ok for all of us. Mikael just made us feel that we all are at home! His kids are just lovely and especially Lulu the sweetie played nicely with our kids at the yard of the blocks(the block has a nice garden on the back). Bikes were perfect we didn't pay anything for public transportation in the city, only for some trains since we visited also some other cities. The flat is in a great location so that you can bike everywhere in the city. Cargo bike was super for the kids. They didn't complain that they are tired which is something we always face with city-breaks. There is a nice supermarket nearby. Mikael also gave us some nice recommendations. Overall; nice flat, very good room, super host. Thanks again Mikael!!
We spent three days in Copenhagen. The apartment is 10 minutes from the city centre by bike. With bicycles is easy to visit the city, although you can also move by bus, subway or walking without any problem. The apartment is great, you have everything to your disposal and the rooms are spacious, the kitchen, the bathroom, the living room, everything clean and tidy. Mikael helped us to plan our tours and he gave us very good tips. We recommend this place to anyone who want to visit Copenhagen.
Great - couldn't recommend more! Really friendly and welcoming plus forgiving of my 4 year old making a mess. Mikael offered some great advice on what to do and where to go and his daughter was fantastic (and patient) with my daughter. The apartment itself is well located and easy to get around Copenhagen from it.
About the Host, Mikael
I'm CEO for Copenhagenize Design Co, but also a filmmaker and photographer and I love living in The City of Cyclists. One of the pleasures of my work is travelling around the world and meeting readers and colleagues who know my Copenhagenize and Copenhagen Cycle Chic blogs.
I figured I would add this pleasure here at home by renting out a Room with a Bike to visitors to Copenhagen. Having international guests is always a pleasure.
I'm single, an urban flâneur, a superdad every other week to my two kids, passionate about CLAP (cinema, literature, art, photography :-) ), thrilled by interesting conversation, happy to be living in Copenhagen.
