About This Listing
Visit my bright and lovely apartment in Copenhagen and do bring your small child/baby also. Stay in the quiet area of Copenhagen only 20 minutes walk from the Little Mermaid and 9 minutes by train to the absolute center of Copenhagen.
I live in an attractive new building with its own café, fitness center and indoor swimming pool and a large, beautiful, sunny garden with barbecue places. Situated a few minutes walk from bus- and trainstation with Metro/tube connection (8 min. to Central Station, 30 min. to the airport). Around the corner you will find the trendy shopping street of Østerbro, Ndr. Frihavnsgade, with lots of takeaways, cafés and groceries (open 8-22 every day). Take a walk to the Lakes, Copenhagen's largest park (Fælledparken) and Langelinie with The Little Mermaid or go to Svanemøllen Beach (5 min. in car).
It is a 2nd floor apartment with elevator including a nice double bedroom, large south facing living room opening on to the large dining kitchen with morning sun, bathroom with shower and washingmachine/dryer, 2 balconies (east and southwest facing). The kitchen has a dishwasher, blender, juice machine, Nespresso w/milk frother, toaster etc. There are DVD and wireless internet, DAB radio and opportunity for wireless music via Airport Express.

There is an elevator in the building and parking in the street (parking fee).
There is a café and restaurant in the buildings (as well as outdoor café throughout the summer), where daily specials can be enjoyed for a small amount. Fitness center, squash courts and swimming pool are available for a fee. You will find a nice big brunch every Saturday/Sunday from 10-17. Recommendable to book table. Østerbro has many good places for brunch, lunch and dinner in all price ranges - inside and outside.
Copenhagen City is right around the corner - live like kings and queens in my home with all amenities both in- and outdoor.

So easy to get around. Trains and busses 2 minutes walk. Center of Copenhagen 6-8 minutes by train. The Little Mermaid 20 minutes walk. Metro/train directly from CPH Airport to my home (approx. 30 minutes).
Checkin and checkout is flexible, but depends on whether there is a change-over during the same day. I'm trying to get my home ready and cleaned so that it fits with my guests' arrival times.
If change-over is the same day, the checkout is 10 am. and checkin is 2pm.
No smoking indoors

When we first walked in, the images from the site perfectly matched what we saw when we walked inside. The lighting, the views, everything was exactly what we were thinking, yet so much better. We absolutely loved this apartment and never wanted to leave. The neighborhood that this apartment is located in is also very nice, quiet and safe. This place was perfect for us. Gitte wasn't able to welcome us in, but her daughter Maria was there to make us feel extremely welcome and made sure that we were comfortable throughout the week. When we return to Copenhagen next time, we'll be looking to book this apartment again!
We enjoyed our stay at Gittes home!it was lovelly and just 5 minutes from metro (email hidden)tte welcomed us in her house explained everything and gave suggestions where to go and what to see in (website hidden) was wonderful and we definatelly recommend it to everyone!!!
The apartment is wonderful, spacious, full of light and positive energy with new furniture and fully equipped and extra clean. Exactly as in the photos and description.
Several shops/groceries are nearby and well supplied. Also, the bus stop and train station are just around the corner.
MsGitte was very kind, helpful and generous. She provided all relevant details including transportation, shops, caffees, etc.
I enjoyed my stay there so much as if I was at my own home. Hope to be back soon!!!
We stayed at Gitte’s apartment for a long weekend in August 2014. Gitte is a lovely lady who met us at the apartment when we arrived, having previously sent excellent directions to us via email. She gave us a comprehensive overview of the area, including maps and directions to local cafes, restaurants, attractions, food stores etc., and even left us a few treats in the fridge. The apartment is as it appears in the pictures and description. A lovely warm, clean, cosy and comfortable one bed apartment that can be used as one connected space or which has the ability to partition off the bedroom and kitchen/dining areas from the lounge.
The apartment, like a lot of accommodation in Copenhagen, is part of a complex consisting of a number of other apartments all very well maintained. The location was a short way from the centre of Copenhagen which took about 45 minutes to walk or 5-10 minutes on the train. The trains were very easy to use, clean and only a few stops into the main areas. Gitte was a great host, her apartment felt like a home and I would recommend staying there to anyone looking for a relaxing time in Copenhagen.
Gitte verwelkomde ons en gaf een korte uitleg over een aantal zaken, verder had ze het een en ander aan informatie voorbereid over bv restaurants in de buurt. Appartement zag er gezellig uit en ligt dicht bij een station. Centrum van Kopenhagen is zo in korte tijd te bereiken. Kortom een mooie basis om van daaruit het mooie Kopenhagen te verkennen.
Gitte was very friendly and helpful and gave me a very useful map (much better than the free tourist maps at the airport). The apartment is delightful! It's Danish cozy at its best. It's very close to downtown--easily walkable on a nice day, and easy by public transportation on any day. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat!
Gitte has a great apartment, very comfortable, spacious and modern. The complex has also a big internal garden and even its own cafe where you can have your breakfast. Gitte was very friendly and accommodating. She was kind enough to wait for us coming very late because our flight was delayed. The location is right outside the tourist area of Copenhagen to the north, providing both calm environment and easy access to the attraction points. Subway station is just 5 minutes away, and 15-20 minutes walking will bring you to the Little Mermaid. Gitte is very helpful in answering any question and provides a lot of valuable information. Very nice and enjoyable stay, we will definitely recommend this place and stay there again if it will be available.
