Great apartment in the very central parts of Copenhagen – Christianshavn!
About the apartment & location:
It´s a one room apartment of about 43 m2 with all necessities. A relatively large living room with a dinner table, a sofa set, TV, desk and a small “french balcony” or something in that style…
There is separate space for the bed, 115 cm, which should be a great cosy alternative for couples!
There is a hallway for your shoes and overcoats, bathroom with shower and WC as well as small but functional kitchen with gas-oven and all utensils you might need to cook a descent dinner.
The apartment is in general furnished with Scandinavian designs and you will have access to wi-fi.
About the area:
The apartment is located by the canal in a larger apartment complex in the calmer area of Christianhavn. The metro is 200 m from your door and it will take you straight to the airport in no more then 13 min.! In a 10 minutes walk you will be in the commercial centre of the city, Rådhuspladsen and Kongens Nytorv, are both just across the bridges. You are 3 minutes away from the city´s harbour and Islands Brygge where you can go for a swim or enjoy the lively harbour-front with a bbq or/and a cold beer!
Christiania, the well known “free town” is a stones throw away, a must when you visit Copenhagen, if you ask me!
You will have access to all shopping facilities around Christianhavns square, supermarkets and great bakeries! There are numerous top restaurants and cafés in the area, among them NOMA, which is known for being the best restaurant in the world – meaning you probably not be able to score a reservation – but still!
Christianshavn is in general a great neighbourhood with unique ambiance! An old working class area, turned artist neighbourhood, turned kind of BoBo with a lot of left leaning well-of´s and old beer drinking harbour people…
It is a great point of departure for trips around the city to areas such as vesterbro, 15-20 min walk, and Nørrebro where you could take the metro and reach that whole area in 5 minutes.
You will have the apartment for yourself! It is certainly best suited for a couple or the business traveller who needs a temporary home. It is however also possible to crash on the sofa for a few nights.
It is my home so ordinary common sense and respect for the neighbours is expected.
Ruben var en omtänksam och proffsig värd. Lägenheten var prisvärd och funktionellt möblerad!
We had a short stay in Rubens apartment. We liked the location, really central and nice. The apartment is not so big, but with everything. The contact with Ruben was good, he even let us in the house with the key under the doormat, super!
Despite I was not able to meet Ruben himself ,I can highly recommend Ruben & the apartment . All was without any problems , Rubens responses came in an instant and he was very reliable. The apartment is nicely located , clean , perfectly equipped and very cosy. Thanks to Ruben ! (-:
The apartment was great, easy to find, great location and homey: full of eclectic tasteful interior; nicely equipped kitchen, lighting that makes you feel immediately cozy and homey.
Ruben was extremely hospitable; you hit the spot with your recommendations that you gave us at arrival, estimated our taste well (Manfred's and the Mikkeler!), we had such a great stay.
Wonderful place and Ruben is a great and friendly host. Highly recommendable.
That was our first experience with airbnb in September, it was really great! Ruben is a perfect and friendly host. He gave us many information about Copenhaven, for example where we can find good restaurants and shops. His apartment is located in a nice area.
We slept very well in his fantastic and quiet apartment. "Your bed is not to small!!!" Thanks for all! Would recommend this place!
Ruben's place was great and in a perfect neighborhood! Would highly recommend!
I highly recommend this apartment for a short or long-term visit to Copenhagen. The location couldn't be better. It was quiet and comfortable with a lovely view. Ruben was also helpful and easy to make arrangements with.
I stayed alone at Ruben's place for 3 nights at the end of July. Ruben is a straightforward guy and everything went according to plan. His place is in a tranquil and picturesque area less than 5 minutes walk from the Christianshavn Metro station, and from there the airport is about 15 minutes away. There is a convenience store almost on his doorstep, and a local shopping area near the Metro. The center of town is very close. I'm a wholly satisfied customer.
The location is brilliant...we walked to tivoli gardens, and back from Nyhavn, but didnt have any of the partying within earshot. Ruben's flat is cozy and homely. Towels, sheets, bathroom were clean. The kitchen had everything needed which he generously offered us use of. Ruben helped us with directions to the christianshavn square near the metro station that had great stores and restaurants, including a 24/7 seven eleven.
The weather was pretty warm, but there was good cross ventilation with the living room and kitchen window made for pleasant night's sleep.
The bed is small as mentioned in the write up, but there was an extra mattress and sheets, so we managed fine. not ideal if you are a couple used to a double bed and keen on cuddling in copenhagen!
we were sharing Ruben's living space, though we had the flat to ourselves. So his stuff was all around as in the photos...not a problem, but not a service apt only for guests to use.
Overall I'd recommend christianshavn by the canal. Ruben's a really nice host, keen to help and very responsive. If you're looking for hotel type accommodation in the city centre that would cost a lot more.
Lastly, nothing to do with the accommodation, but while in Copenhagen, try and make the trip to the Hamlet castle at helsingor, and do the hamlet tour...we LOVED the dramatisation
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
