The Space

The apartment is truly unique compared to the majority of apartments in Denmark and Copenhagen. Located at the 3rd and 4th floor in the fairly new and award-winning complex called VM-house designed by world famous architect Julien De Smedt.

The apartment is located in Orestad and is around 95 square meters in two plans. At the upper level is the kitchen with modern facilities (incl. dish washer), living/dining area, bathroom and access to a nice balcony. At the lower lever is where the sleeping takes place for the entire family. There is a double bed in one end and a child bed in the other. There is only one door (to the bathroom) in the entire apartment so you will be together at all time.....

The apartment is located in Orestad - a fairly new part of Copenhagen that is still under development. The area where the apartment is located is almost fully developed and is very quiet. So the best thing about the area is that it Is so relaxing and quiet and still only 10 minutes by Metro to the old charming city center of Copenhagen. Here in the city center you have all the attraction that Copenhagen can offer.

The shopping in Orestad is concentrated in a huge shopping mall, where you have all kind of different shops including supermarket. It Is very conveniently, but not that charming.

For the visitors interested in architecture Orestad can offer a variety of interesting buildings that have been being recognized and awarded. This is for example VM-Husene (where the apartment is), VM-Bjerget, 8TALLET, Tietgen College by Lundgaard & Tranberg, DR´s Concert Hall by Jean Nouvel (mainly the inside of the building)

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Modern , bright apartment.
    unfortunately can't write about the host since we did not have chance to meet him upon check in nor when checking out.
    communication with Jakob was smooth and he replied within a day.

    the down point of the apartment is that Jakob and his family leave there with kids and we found premises not very clean and super dusty . ( we arrived late afternoon and to make us feel at ease decided to vacuum and map the all floor and dust some of the areas we were going to use ) do not expect garderobe space or clean shelves as all personal belongings are left around ( we kept our clothes in the luggage throughout the ll period )
    upon arrival expect to make your own bed ,pillows , duvet and bed sheets are old and stained

    despite the above we made ourselves comfortable and made best out of our stay.

  • Jakob very good host. We arrived late because there was a storm, but he waited for us all the time and helped with the apartment. The holiday was not spoiled. The apartment is awesome and is in a convenient location.

    Thanks for everything!

  • Opholdet i Jakobs lejlighed var en rigtig god oplevelse for min mand og mig. Lejlighedens beliggenhed er et perfekt udgangspunkt for oplevelser i Ørestad såvel som i resten af København. Jeg vil dog lige gøre opmærksom på, at hverken trappe eller repos er fuldt afskærmet i et omfang, der gør lejligheden sikker for mindre børn (hvilket også ses af billederne).

  • This was the most modern place on our road trip. Not a place for a shy person though as there is plenty of window area.

  • Very good experience staying at Jakob's apartment in Orestad. The building exterior itself is attention grabbing and there were people taking photos when i was there. Inside Jakob's apartment, it was well furnished, everything worked and was very clean. Jakob even prepared an A to Z guide to Copenhagen and to the apartment which i found helpful. The apartment is walking distance from 2 metros and one train station. There is a huge shopping mall close by which is also a big plus.

  • Jacob was a very nice host. Check in and out was easy and smooth.
    The apartment was exactly what we wanted. It was design by the famous Architect Byarke Ingels & JDS Architect. It had everything you need, nice and quite environment.
    Jacob use to live in this apartment but he keeps it clean and cozy. There are a lot of toys in the house which I thought a bit messy but my son love it, made him feels like home. I guess that is another plus point if you are coming with children.
    The location was in a new modern township with a lot of nice modern architecture building surroundings. It was quite easy to go to the city center, 5 minutes walk to the metro. There is also a big shopping complex ‘The Fields’ which is very convenience located nearby.

    We really had a pleasant stay and would really recommend this apartment anytime.

  • We spent wonderful days exploring Copenhagen from Jakob´s flat. It was easy to reach from the airport and the biking route to the city was simple. Perfect for a family, cot and high chair were available and our kid loved all the toys and books. One has to come up with safety systems though because of the railing and stairs which can be dangerous for toddlers running around without brains ;)

    It was easy to communicate with Jakob and get answers to any questions. We can warmly recommend this beautiful loft to anyone :)
