About This Listing
Nice and fairly centrally located apartment with easy access to both bus and trains. I have always been able to accommodate the arrival time of my guests as I have friends that have been able to meet them if I am working. Therefore, there is a high likelihood that I would be able to accommodate all "out of hours" arrival times (in addition to ones during the day) in the future. Public transport can be taken directly from the airport to right across the street from my apartment. If you are arriving at the airport you can catch the metro from inside the airport (it's faster than a cab). You'll have the whole apartment to yourself which includes a large bathroom and balcony. The bedroom is located away from the street and right above a supermarket, so you won't have to worry about street noise keeping you awake or noise coming from below. Smoking is only allowed on the balcony.
The apartment comfortably sleeps 4 if I compare to average hotel standards. However, I have extra comfortable mattresses in storage and more guests are welcome to stay if they don't mind sleeping on one of these mattresses. There is enough room on the floor for 2 extra mattresses: one extra double mattress and 1 extra single one-so in total room for 7. I also just bought a crib with a mattress that I've put in the storage room. If you would like to use this please let me know before you arrive so I can bring it upstairs.
Included in price:
Use of dishes and silverware
Clean bed linen and towels
Free use of washing machine and dryer (2 loads if renting short-term)
Tourist guides and maps of Copenhagen
Parking (I can't guarantee that parking will be available, but whenever I've looked there are open spots. I can lend you a parking pass which gives you access to all the spaces allocated to my building.) The parking spaces are directly behind my building. They extend around the whole courtyard. Let me know at the time of booking if you would like to lend one. I don't keep them in the apartment (as they tend to go missing quickly) but I will lend it to guests if I know directly whom I am lending it to.
I will provide an electronic chip to loan so that guests can use the washing machine and/or dryer for free for 2 loads of washing. If they would like to wash more they can let me know in advance and pay a small fee. The washing machines are in the basement and are shared with the other tenants. There is no pre-booking and the machines can be used 24 hrs. Whenever I've gone to use them there are machines available so I doubt you would have to wait in line to use one.
I have a lockable storage room which I am not using in the basement that should be available most days (please check with me first though before arrival). This is convenient for those guests who have a late flight and need somewhere to store their bags from check out until evening. It could also be possible to store them for a longer period of time.
There are a lot of nice cafes and restaurants in my area. My favorite cafe is KaffeKilden just a few doors down on Tagensvej. They have the best cheescake.
The hospital is a few minutes away (which hopefully you won't have to visit) along with one of my favorite attractions in Copenhagen: Statens Museum for Kunst (The National Gallery of Denmark). Admission to most of this museum is free.
Public transportation is just across the street and one bus stop around the corner and another across the busy intersection. Bike paths are excellent and if you are loaning my bikes or renting your own, they are my favorite way to get around Copenhagen. It's considered the 2nd most bike friendly in Europe (Amsterdam is first).
Other Things to Note
Note: If you doing an automatic booking for the very same night and have given me short notice of your arrival time, you may need to come to me to pick up the keys or get them from a friend of mine in order to receive them by your desired time.
Refrain from loud noise between 10 PM and 10 AM so you don't disturb neighbors.
Leave the apartment as clean as you found it. Take off your shoes when you come in so that the floors and rug stay clean.
If you smoke, only do so on the balcony.
Notify me before booking if you want to bring your pet so we can discuss particulars.
If you don't specify a check-in time and only write what time you'll be at Kastrup (Copenhagen) airport or Central station Copenhagen then I'll assume that you'll be at my apartment within 40 minutes of that time. There's no guarantee that I will be able to wait more than 30 minutes after the 2 PM check-in time (or another time if we have agreed on another time or if you have just written your arrival time at the airport or Central station). If I don't have somewhere I need to be and I can wait it's 100 dkk (Danish krone) per hour for each hour you're late.
Make sure the day you are leaving to leave the sets of keys on the key hook in the kitchen. You can use the last set to lock the door and make sure to put it all the way through the slot on my apartment door.
The place was nice and clean as shown in the pictures. It was just 15 min away from the town center so that was very comfortable for us. Although Sharon wasn't very helpful as a host. We had an emergency but she didn't pick up our calls and we almost missed our flight. Even the checkin process was very confusing, she asked her maid to show the place who hardly spoke any English. So overall the place was good but it was hard to get hold of the host when needed.
Amit unfortunately must not have read my directions (sent via airbnb in an email) regarding where to return the last set of keys after locking up (this was the "emergency" he had called me about). My husband, who is just as familiar with the apartment as I am, was at the apartment taking measurements on the door when Amit and Shiny arrived and they could have asked him if confused by anything (he speaks perfect English). The cleaner says they they spoke their native languages as they preferred that to communicating in English (I spoke with the wife and she is not good at English). Amit was aware that I had a prior commitment and wouldn't be meeting him at the apartment. This is a low cost accommodation and not a 4 star hotel with 24 hour room service. I did answer the phone twice when they called (they didn't even try to call the contact I left for them in Copenhagen apparently). They knew I was abroad so it was expensive to call them back. The other times I didn't answer as my phone was on silent-it was a weekend, around 7 AM and I was sleeping!!
Fin lille lejelighed, meget centralbellighed. Det er alt hvad man skal bruge af udstyr.
A nice, clean apartment with good location. Perfect for group of 4 to 5. Sharon was very helpful with her detail instruction to get there and go around. She always replied message quickly. We didn't meet her during our stay, but her cleaner was there to instruct us everything. Nice stay which made us enjoy the time in Copenhagen
My friends and I spend two nights in Sharons lovely appartment in Copenhagen. Despite some organisational problems (i.a. we arrived more then 3 hours later than expected) she was always very kind and helpful, described us everything we needed to know in every detail and was extremly quick in her reply.
The apartment was a bit cuddly for 4 people but we know that in the beginning. As we spend the whole day outside in the city it was really perfect for us as we had all we needed!
It is true that the Internet will be slowed down a bit, when you use it extensively, but for checking up attractions and watching youtube videos it is fully sufficient.
If I'd go to Copenhagen for an other visit, I would book it again!
Fin lägenhet. Vi trivdes jättebra i lägenheten även om den var lite mindre än vi trott, men vi rymdes bra som bara var 3 personer. Sovrumssidan är tyst och lugn medans kökssidan hörs mera ljud från gatan. Sharons vän tog imot oss och var trevlig och med sharon har vi endast haft kontakt via email eftersom vi fick problem med telefonerna, men det gick hur bra som helst endå, hon är trevlig och omtänksam. Okej läge en bit från centrum med bra bussförbindelser till stan, rekomenderar citypass. Tack för allt.
Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt in Sharons Apartment. Die Wohnung ist zwar nicht sehr groß, aber sehr zentral gelegen. Der Supermarkt liegt direkt unter der Wohnung, die Bushaltestelle ist schnell zu erreichen (3 min zu Fuß), von dort sind es noch ca. 10 min ins Zentrum. Wir konnten mit unserern drei Kindern bequem in dem einen Zimmer schlafen. Die Küche ist ein wenig klein, aber es ist auch zu fünft machbar, dort zu essen. Obwohl Sharon nicht dort wohnt, beantwortete sie alle unsere Fragen schnell, zuverlässig und hilfreich. Wir hoffen sehr, dort bald wieder Urlaub machen zu können!

About the Host, Sharon
I grew up in America (northern IL) and lived some years in Ireland and Sweden. I speak English, Swedish, French, and can understand Danish. I love to travel and I'm currently looking forward to exploring more of the South Pacific when I get time off from studies and work.
Supermarket right under apartment. Convenient because shopping for groceries is quicker and this store has long opening hours. Also, the apartment is above the grocery store so its quiet at night.Tagensvej KØBENHAVN N Capital Region of Denmark 2200

A great bicycle shop is located here. Copenhagen is the 2nd most bike friendly city in Europe. With bike paths abound Id recommend renting either mine or one from a bike store while you are here.Thorsgade kbh 2200
