About this listing
AirBNB wrote this recently: Congratulations on completing 205 bookings, receiving 98 5-star reviews, and on your 2 year anniversary! That is extremely impressive, and after looking through your listings, we can see why people love your apartments!
If you're interested in living in a building full of century old details, wooden floors, a new kitchen and bathroom, new heating system and boiling hot water on immediate demand, then look no further!
The wonderful building is centrally located in Copenhagen City. Built in 1737 and restored since, this building is completely protected by the Danish State, and has many details traceable back to the original builders.
On any online map service, check out the street: Møntergade, 1116 Copenhagen. It's impossible to reside any closer to the centre of Copenhagen.
The apartment takes up the entire third and fourth floor, and contains:
* A main bedroom facing the backyard, equipped with a 180x200 cm double-bed, and a bunk bed (each mattress 90 x 200 cm),
* A smaller bedroom facing the backyard that contains a bunk bed and the stairs up to the main bedroom
* A sitting room, facing the street, with a sofa, dining table, chairs and a small hifi system
* Fullsize bedroom, facing the street, equipped with two sets of bunkbeds etc
* Completely decked out kitchen
*Bathroom with shower, sink and toilet
* A terrace for 6
* Please note, there is no cot, no TV and no outdoor grill :-)
This beautiful and spacious apartment comfortably hosts 6 guests and the accommodation goes to 13 guests. If you're more that 8 guests, you'll need to be comfortable with living and sleeping CLOSE to each other.
Although you have a good solid bed each, and each have towels, you'll be packed in close together. Just so you know!
The apartment contains all modern facilities to make your stay pleasant and easy going.
Full bedding, sheets, linen, a towel and a set of keys is provided for EACH guest.
HOW ARE THE BEDS SET UP?
We can sleep 13 in the apartment. It's tight, but doable. There is a double bed in Bedroom (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) cm) and a bunk bed (90x200). In Bedroom 2 there is a single bunk bed, and in Bedroom 3 there are two other bunk beds (90x200). Finally there trundles that can move anywhere, each 90x200 cm.
When you place your reservation with us, please specify which beds you would like made ready for you, and where.
WHAT DO GUESTS HAVE ACCESS TO?
Amenities include wireless internet, dishwasher, stereo system, fully equipped kitchen etc. You will also find full-size beds and mattresses, blankets, pillows and all bed linens with utilities such as heat, water and electricity all included. All furnishing is Scandinavian in style, modern and completely upheld.
For public transportation, every kind is within walking distance, as are many of Copenhagen's A-grade restaurants and night-life.
Check in times are flexible pending our mutual needs, and I regularly ask for a noon check out. There is a storage space for your luggage, should you have later flights, and require a luggage drop.
The apartment is a 100% non-smoking apartment. In all, mature and responsible guests will be preferred.
Interaction with Guests
HOW DO HOST AND GUESTS INTERACT?
GETTING TO THE APARTMENT:
Once you have informed me of your arrival time to Copenhagen and let me know how you'd like the beds set up, I will then e-mail you with details instructions on how to get to the apartment.
DURING YOUR STAY:
I will always be online and around, as will my friend Kristian. In all, we've got your back :-)
If you choose to reside at my apartment, you will be living in what's known as the Middle Ages part of Copenhagen. This area was developed in the era (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN), and was still inside the old walls of protective moats of Copenhagen.
Within 5 minutes walk of the address you find: Copenhagen's central walking streets, The Kings Garden, The Kings Square, Nyhavn, the harbour, Tivoli, The Royal Theatre, and much much more. The quiet one way offers space for parking a rental car or bikes.
Although Copenhagen's main train station is the largest, the nearby Nørreport Station is in fact Denmark's most visited. The connections to and from Møntergade are absolutely fantastic.
Regarding (parking) a car: The parking just outside the building can be quite expensive. If you park on Borgergade or Adelgade you can save a lot of money. I'll provide you with all the links to parking guides upon request.
Regarding bikes, if you try entering this phrase into a search engine "rent a bike in Copenhagen" you'll find many good outlets close by.
Other Things to Note
Since I receive the same questions quite often, to make your life easier and faster here are answers to the questions that I'm frequently asked:
IS IT NEAR THE CITY CENTER? YES!
You are a stone's throw from e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. except empty fields :-)
IS IT AVAILABLE? YES!
If the AirBNB Calendar shows my apartment as available then you can book immediately without needing to ask me first. I have activated "Instant Booking" for the same reason. But please do not use the instant book feature if you're planning to stay for just one Friday or Saturday night. Instead, place an inquiry to me.
WILL YOU GIVE A DISCOUNT? NO!
I have set the prices at a fair level. I do often put offers in the calendar, so keep an eye open.
IS THERE REALLY SPACE FOR 13? YES!
Look, the apartment is from 1773. The more guests you are, the closer you'll be sleeping to each other. Also, your skills at negotiation will be tested regarding the bathroom. But, having said that, you'll be living s.m.a.c.k. in the middle of Copenhagen for a fraction of the price that a hotel costs.
WHEN CAN I CHECK IN? IT DEPENDS!
Generally, you and I will find a good check-in time. If other guests are checking out the same day you check in, I won't be able to offer a check in prior to 1430. BUT; you will be able to access the corridor to store your suitcases etc. (between 1200 and 1430). All check-outs are at or prior to 12.00.
Please, during booking, we need you to tell us your times of arrival in advance so we can get organized with preparing the place.
WHAT'S THE TOTAL COST? THE ONE CALCULATED HERE BY AIRBNB.
The price is a little hard for me to calculate precisely, as AirBNB add a variable fee during the booking process. I suggest you simply enter the amount of nights and persons, and AirBNB will give you the total price. There are no added costs beyond that.
HOW DO I PAY? TO AIRBNB.
The Payment Method is the one that you prefer paying directly to AirBNB (as an intermediary).
CAN I CHANGE MY BOOKING AFTER I HAVE PLACED IT? YES!
You are welcome to tack on, or remove, the amount of nights you're staying, and you are welcome to adjust the amount of guests as you wish. To do so, follow these guidelines: https://www.airbnb.com/help/question/50
DO YOU SUPPLY BEDDING? YES!
Each guest gets a full bed, with pillow, duvet, bed linen, a towel and their own set of keys to the building.
CAN WE COOK THERE? YES!
The kitchen is fully equipped, has everything you need.
DO YOU HAVE WIFI? YES!
You have free and unlimited Internet. A very fast 30/5 wifi network!
DO YOU HAVE A TV? NO!
DO YOU HAVE A STEREO SYSTEM? YES!
There is an amplifier in the sitting room, which allows you to connect to the system using the mini jack cable there if you wish to hear music. Because the building is old, sound travels well. In order to not disturb the neighbours, please keep the music down and really low after 2200.
ARE WE THE ONLY GUESTS IN THE APARTMENT? YES!
The apartment is all for you; you don't have to share it with anyone else!
MAY I BRING EXTRA GUESTS FOR A FEW NIGHTS? YES!
Just let me know beforehand, and we'll set things up for you. The AirBNB system cannot handle a variety of guests for the stay, so for the extra guests I ask a flat-fee of 39 EUR / 300 DKK per guest, per night, payable at your check in.
HOW MANY BEDS ARE THERE?
We can sleep 13 in the apartment. It's tight, but doable. There is a double bed in the main bedroom (180x200 cm) and a bunk bed (90x200). In the other bedroom there are two other bunk beds (90x200). There is a small bedroom with a bunk bed, and finally there trundles that can move anywhere, each 90x200 cm.
ARE THERE MANY SHOPS AROUND? YES!
The location of the house has all kinds of shops you need right next-door: many groceries, supermarkets, cafes, clothes' shops, pubs/bars, etc.
IS THERE FREE PARKING FOR OUR CAR? NO!
Regarding (parking) a car: The parking just outside the building can be quite expensive. If you park on Borgergade or Adelgade you can save a lot of money.
MAY WE SMOKE IN THE APARTMENT? NO!
Since the building is really old, smoking is not allowed. You are allowed to smoke on the terrace.
* No smoking in the apartment or in the stairwell
* Smoking is allowed on the outdoor terrace
* No pets
* Please respect the neighbours on the lower floors by not making any noise after 9 p.m.
* No redecorating or moving furniture around.
* No overnight guests other than those specified in booking.
* Do let me know if anything breaks in the apartment
* I provide sheets, towels and other the necessary home textiles.
* One of the main beds is 180 cm in width, and is best suited for couples or single travellers. All other beds are single beds.
* Internet is wireless and 30 Mbit / 5 Mbit in speed.
Please treat my place like it was your own.
