Cosy, spacious apt on the outskirts of the hip Nørrebro in Copenhagen. The apt is 60 m2 and has two balconies! One with breakfast and morning sun (in extension of the kitchen) and one with afternoon and evening sun (in the living room)!
The apartment is located in a quiet area and there is a large enclosed courtyard with garages, green area and playground. If you want more life, Nørrebrogade ("main" street in Nørrebro ) is just a 5 min walk away.
I bought the apartment in 2010 and has put time and love to renovate it myself. The old, cozy look that was in the apartment is not scrapped in favor of new steel and gloss, but only slightly modernized where necessary. It has created a nice, light, airy, but also incredibly cozy apartment. The old kitchen has been preserved, but had a "facelift" and the bathroom has a classic example of the Copenhagen apartments from the 30's : a soaking tub! So it is also possible to enjoy a bubble bath after a day of touring the city :-)
There is good shopping nearby and several supermarkets to choose from. And Nørrebro City Center with various shopping opportunities just around the corner.
I'd love to help with questions about the neighborhood and the city. I have lived in Nørrebro for many years and can recommend many good "sights " :-)
Please remember to read the housemanual!
In the bedroom (with window to the courtyard) is a nice, big double bed. There is plenty of floor space, eg if you want to do yoga or similar (the desk you see in the photo is not there any more). Mat and big pilatesball is available :-)
In the window you'll find speakers, so there is the possibility to add music via iPod.
The living room has the opportunity to make an extra bed space with a high, luxury air mattress and of course duvet and pillows. There is also a good stereo with CD/DVD player and iPod jack. There's no TV in the apartment.
The kitchen has large fridge and freezer and you'll find all things necessary for cooking. Also here is the opportunity to play music or listen to the radio from an iPod duck.
There's a single payments laundry with dryer in the basement. There is also room for bicycles and prams / pushchairs.
Clean bed linen and towels are provided.
Interaction with Guests
Normally I'll be there to hand over the keys, show you the apartment and answer any questions you may have.
Nørrebro offers plenty of culture, café life, fashion and shopping - especially in specialty stores. Creativity flourishes in the area and there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the sun in one of the neighborhood's many green parks.
The apartment is close to Nørrebro station and in addition there are incredibly good connections to public transport, within walking distance of 5 min. Bispebjerg station where there are S trains every 5 min. on weekdays and every 10 min. - all night - during the weekend (these are also connected to the Metro)! In addition, there are several bus services to the city center and inner Nørrebro. However, I can also recommend to take the 10-15 minute walk along the lively Nørrebrogade to the heart of Nørrebro: Nørrebros circle and the beautiful Assistens cemetery where many famous Danes are buried, eg Hans Christian Andersen.
If you have a bike, you can ride to City Hall in approx. 20-25 minutes. Otherwise, the bus will also take you right there.
The apartment is my home, so please treat it with respect. A few simple rules:
- Always put the balcony doors on hook and don't leave them open when you leave the apartment
- in winter, don't leave the windows open and the heaters on at the same time
- don't leave water on the kitchen tables please, it leaves stains and ruins the wood. And always use cuttingboards - don't cut directly on the tables.
- don't throw cigarets butts from the balconies
- mind the wood floors a bit (don't walk in with your shoes on, please) and rinse of with warm water straight away, if you spill something that can leave a stain, fx redwine.
Otherwise, you'll get fare with common sence :-)
I give full marks for matte's apartment because everything is complete for everyday life. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and easy to find. I highly recomment to anyone who wants to visit copenhagen, matte's apartment is very liveable.
El apartamento y la ubicación es muy buena. Esta cerca del transporte público y se puede llegar andando al centro en un bonito paseo. Mette, es encantadora y nos trató muy bien. Muchas gracias!!
Tak for endnu et godt ophold hos dig, hvor vi fik udforsket lidt mere af København end sidste gang.
Mettes leilighet var et godt sted å bo. Leiligheten var lys og luftig, og Mette hadde satt leiligheten i utmerket stand for oss. Internett-forbindelsen var ok, så vi savnet ikke TV. Leiligheten ligger litt utenfor København sentrum, men dette visste vi på forhånd. Bussforbindelsen er utmerket (hvert 10 minutt) så det var en smal sak å komme seg rundt som vi ville. Mette var en hyggelig vertinne, og viste fleksibilitet når vi gjerne ville forandre på datoene vi hadde booket. Anbefales!
Everything was well organised even though I had delayed replies. Mette had welcome words and gestures in a welcoming place. It is a very nice place, cosy and sweet.
The place is very easy to travel with a car2go - 10 Min to the city. That in combination was great.
We would come back.
Regards and thanks!
Agréable séjour à Copenhague, l'appartement est sympathique , bien situé, facilement desservi. Nous avons pu profiter commodément de la visite de la ville et des environs.
Very nice stay, the appartment was even bigger than what we expected, and Mette is a kind and helpfull person.
I'm 31 years old and studying to become a bodytherapist. In june 2014 I'll have my BA in psychomotricity and relaxation therapy.
Besides studying I teach different kinds of movement courses and I also work with mentally disabled adults.
I live an active life and as many other people in Copenhagen, I bike everywhere I need to go :-)
I've lived in Nørrebro and Nordvest for many years now and I know the area really well. I'll be happy to help you with any questions you may have.
