Rooftop apartment with canal view

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Overgaden Neden Vandet, Copenhagen, Capital Region of Denmark 1414, Denmark

The Space

Welcome to our beautiful oasis in the centre of Copenhagen. Close to everything from shopping to sites and reachable with direct metro from the airport. You will be living in a charming building from the 18th century surrounded by old colorful buildings - all facing the canal.

THE APARTMENT is located on the top floor and is spacious, bright and perfect for a couple as well as a family. There will be clean linens and towels on the bed when you arrive so don't worry about that - it's just unnecessary luggage. You will have a fully equipped kitchen available, a bedroom with a double bed, a large living room with TV, couch and office area and a dining room overlooking the beautiful area of Christianshavn. Of course WIFI, washing machine, computer and dishwasher is available. If you are 4 people in the apartment a large airbed will be set up in the living room.

THE AREA is within walking distance from all main sites and attractions in Copenhagen. If you prefer you can also use the free citybikes right outside the apartment or walk to the metro which is less than two minutes. You can even use the water bus, the harbor tour or simply a kayak to get around! All possible variations of great restaurants can be found in the area along with museums and the famous ‘Our Saviour's Church’ is right outside the window. If the weather is great you have the beach within 10 minutes by metro (or bike) and great parks nearby.

TRANSPORTATION from airport can be done in 15 minutes with the metro or 15 minutes from the central station.

I am really happy to welcome you to my place and I would be happy to answer any questions you have. And of course show you around the city if you would like! It's a really special place with lots of personality.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Après avoir passé plus d'un mois dans l'appartement d'Aja, nous sommes tristes de le quitter. Agréable, clair, joliment décoré, ce "petit" appartement est parfait pour un couple. Le quartier de Christianshavn est charmant et animé et la vue sur ses canaux depuis le salon d'Aja vous donne l'impression d'y habiter depuis toujours. L'équipement de l'appartement est complet et pratique, l'immeuble soigneusement rénové et agréable avec une cour intérieure qui aurait sa place dans les magazines de décoration.
    Aja et son ami Jakob sont charmants. Et, last but not least, les cinq étages à monter plusieurs fois par jour vous ménagent un exercice physique quotidien tout à fait bienvenu.
    A recommander vivement.

  • Aja was out of town but her partner Jakob was very helpful in making us feel welcome and, most importantly, helping with getting the luggage up to this 6th floor penthouse apartment! The apartment was charming, although the bathroom was quite small, since the building is quite old and was built before indoor plumbing it might appear. There is a standup shower but not really very large; it was manageable. The location is fantastic, we wish we would have made it to one of the three Michelin-starred restaurants within a few blocks!

  • We had fantastic days in Aja´s apartment!!! We stayed in her flat around Ironman Copenhagen and the location was perfect. You can go by foot everywhere you want, it´s central but quite.
    The only negative thing was to climb up the stairs to the fifth floor after eleven hours of competion ;-)

  • Really nice flat in Christianshavn. We lived their for about two month and enjoyed the great location.

  • Aja's apartment is just stunning and perfectly located for exploring Copenhagen. Aja greeted us on arrival and provided us with some guide books and information on the surrounding area. We didn't realise just how close to the city centre it was! It's roughly just a 10 minute walk into the centre. I can highly recommend the Lakagehuset bakery on the corner and the Baresso coffee place on the other corner. Also try the food in the boat house on the canal, it was fantastic and the people there were lovely. There's also a supermarket which is just a 2 minute walk away which is very handy.

    We stayed here for Eurovision, so used the public transport a lot to get to Malmö and back and it was fantastic. It's clean, reliable and fast.

    The apartment was clean, bright and comfortable and because Aja was so lovely on greeting us, it really felt like our home for the week.

    Even if Copenhagen don't host Eurovision next year, I would definitely visit this beautiful city again in the future and would definitely look to stay here again!

  • Positives:
    Kopenhagen ist eine lebendige Stadt, jedoch ohne Hektik.
    Es gibt viele Attraktionen.
    Die Verkehrsnabindungen sind sehr gut. Alles läßt sich leicht per S-Bahn, Metro oder Bus erreichen. Wer es lieber langsamer möchte, kann alles auch zu Fuß erreichen.
    Besonders lecker: Die Kuchenauswahl

    Die Oper liegt etwas Abseits und hatte Anfang Mai (2013) kein Programm merh zu bieten.
    Momentan gibt es vielerorts Baustellen wegen des Ausbaus der Metro und Verlegens an Fernwärmeleitungen

  • Frankly, I didn't realize how convenient this apartment is to beautiful downtown Copenhagen until we got here. It is an excellent location. You can walk everywhere from Aja's apartment. There is a Metro station nearby, and the Canal tour operators' stop can be seen from her kitchen window. So, you can plan your canal tour accordingly. There is a nearby grocery store and delicious bakery as well. Don't forget that to get to the rooftop apartment you climb a lot of stairs. Keeps you in shape or gets you in shape ;). Aja's apartment is clean and bright with windows allowing sunlight in throughout the day. We loved it!

  • Aja and Jacob is what airbnb is all about: home away from home. the 3 of us spent 126 wonderful and memorable days in their lovely apartment.
    from the moment we arrived (2 am!) till the minute we left; they were always there for us, caring and attending to all our needs you simply cant hope for better hosts.
    the apartment is very cozy and homey and it had everything we've needed . its a very nice apartment (with a great view of the canal) in a unique and lovely old building on the water. the perfect location at the best neighborhood in a wonderful city.

    January 2013
  • Well, Aja is a very nice host.
    The flat is very nice too, very well furnished, so sunny and quiet, everything we needed.
    The neighborhood is great, the building is facing a romantic canal, and it's very close to public transportation (and the best danish bakery is 30 meters away!!)
    The bed is great too and a bit bigger than the photo shows (we were worried about its size), but in the summer just think to bring sleeping masks as there are no curtains nor shutters, unless you want the sun to wake you up.
    Thanks Aja !!

  • Cute apartment in a great location. Lots of windows, good views. I never met Aja because I arrived after my parents checked in, but in their words she was "the perfect host" - very friendly and helpful.

Hi, I'm Aja! I live in Copenhagen in the charming neighborhood of Christianshavn. I work for Airbnb at our Danish office and everything about that is great - the people, the place, the company and the concept. I am happy to share my rooftop oasis and help you around Copenhagen. I have travelled a lot and enjoy visiting all countries - everything from the jungle in Bolivia to the beaches of India and from the city life of Paris to the buzzing New York. I can't wait for all of you to come visit!:)
