Charming apartment with colorful details close to Nørrebro Station. With the apartment comes two bicycles so you can explore Copenhagen. The apartment is bright and has two balconies with plenty of sun. It is located on a peaceful road.
Welcome to Copenhagen and to this charming apartment with colourful details close to Nørrebro Station - perfect for a couple, two or three close friends or a couple with a child.
The interior is carefully chosen Scandinavian design and inherited furniture with colourful details. You will feel like home!
The bright living room has a cosy alcove bed, double sofa bed, cupboard, table and access to the two sunny balconies with a nice view of green trees and the blue sky.
The small cosy kitchen has got soul and a lot of nice details with everything you'll need for cooking and a small place to sit. There is also a small bathroom with shower and toilet.
You'll have the apartment all to yourself and I will provide clean bed linen and towels for your stay. It has WiFi internet connection and a laptop that you can use for internet and playing dvd's.
You can (for free) borrow two bicycles from me to get easily around in Copenhagen. It's absolutely the best way to explore Copenhagen - the city of bicycles - like a local. And it will save you money - public transport and renting bikes is quite expensive.
But if you prefer public transport - buses and trains are close by - 12 min's to the city center by bus and 15 min's by bike.
The neighbourhood around is lively and multi-cultural where also a lot of creative people have their work spaces.
The apartment is situated in a quiet street with almost no traffic.
The apartment is good for a relaxed stay in Copenhagen. A nice affordable alternative to an expensive, mainstream hotel.
Interaction with Guests
When you book my apartment I will send you practical information about transport + insiders tips and ideas on where to go and what to see, to make your stay in Copenhagen even better.
Feel free to ask if you have any questions - or if you have a specific interest that you would like some insiders tips for.
The building where the apartment is located and the buildings around are traditional and solid brick buildings from 1930. They where build specially for the workers in the craft guilds and their families - and the streets have names from different groups of workers or guilds. Now it's condos where people buy a share of the building when moving in, it's all kind of people living here now; students, seniors and families. The neighbourhood around is lively and multi-cultural where also a lot of creative people have their work spaces.
Please do not smoke in-doors - you are welcome to smoke at the balcony.
It's not allowed to barbecue at the balconies. But you can barbecue in the green area in front of the apartment - you will even find barbecues there.
Please do not play loud music after 9 in the evening, so I can maintain good neighborly relations.
And I hope you feel at home.
Ida's apartment is fantastic. Very cute and cosy and the facilities all worked perfectly.
Ida was waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived. She showed us round the place then gave us some tips for getting round Copenhagen (which included the use of her two bikes).
The apartment is located in a nice quiet area. Public transport is close but we did a lot of walking as the city is so nice. Cycling means your close to everything.
We really enjoyed our stay at Ida's and would definitely stay again.
Ida is a charming lady who made us very welcome and comfortable in her cosy and attractive flat. She is well organised and everything was in order. She provided a lot of useful information about the locality. The bikes were a great plus - a fun and speedy way to get about in a cycle-friendly city.
Our stay in Ida's apartment was great. The apartment itself is beautifully and super stylishly decorated and was equipped with everything we wanted. Very comfortable, very nice. There were even flowers, fruit, and a couple of cold beers in the fridge when we arrived. A nice touch! We were two people, which is probably the optimum, but it would (just) work with three I guess. Ida's bikes are reliable and easy (I never thought I'd write that. I'm not normally a bike rider, but in Copenhagen I did it, and it really was easy. just copy the locals for how to negotiate intersections, turning and so on).
The location was great, with about 15 minutes by bike from the centre, and with loads of interesting stuff in between. It's in a multi-culti part of town. There are loads of restaurants, shops, supermarkets, and so on nearby. The beach is apparently about 15 minutes away by bike as well, but we didn't go (it rained the day we had that in mind).
Ida is lovely, helpful and knowledgeable. She sent a mail with tips and links, so we could browse the net before arriving, so it felt like our break started even before we got there.
All in all, I can highly recommend staying in this apartment.
Ida's apartment was the perfect base for us to explore Copenhagen and the surrounding environs, and Ida was a fantastic hostess. She met us at the apartment and not only gave us the run-down of the place, the bikes and the area, but gave great suggestions for food/shopping, etc., and to top it off left us a fridge with beer, a small bottle of bubbly, and some Danish chocolate as a welcome.
The flat is a great example of "hygge", a cute and cozy apartment that felt like home from the moment we stepped in--maybe because the decor is similar to our own home's eclectic mix, but definitely because the neighborhood of Nørrebro is like ours in Chicago (Logan Square) in terms of being a non-touristy "real" person's area that's nonetheless full of top-notch bars/restaurants/etc. That said, getting to the tourist areas is a super easy and quick jaunt on bikes. It's not a large space, but for two people it's more than enough. The kitchen is nicely stocked for cooking at home (having eggs/toast for breakfast saves kroner to spend on øl later!), though I am sure there are some people who might find the bath to be a bit odd. The entire small bathroom is the shower and toilet combined--but that wasn't an issue for us at all. You clean yourself and the bathroom at the same time! The two bikes it came with are perfectly serviceable and safe for getting around town (the best bike city in the world!), but I would advise if you are going to be doing any distance traveling (we biked several times up the coast to Vedbaek, about 20km/12.5mi each way), it might be better to rent lighter bikes with more gears.
In any case, it looks like we'll be back in CPH in the fall and we'll more than happily stay there if it's open.
We liked the apartment at the first sight – it is cosy, practical and well designed. We prepared breakfast every morning and supper almost every evening and anything we needed we found in the small kitchen.
We travelled to Copenhagen by own car and we could park the car for free on the street just in front of the house. For us it was a benefit worth of money.
We had own bikes with us and it is very easy to cycle in Copenhagen. We could reach the city centre – Kongens Nytorv – in ten minutes. Ida gave us many useful tips of points of interest where to go by bike. She gave us also valuable information about kayaking in Copenhagen but unfortunately the weather was so unpredictable that we kept our inflatable kayak packed.
Ida is a marvellous landlady and she gave us information about places worth of seeing which tourists normally do not know.
The apartment was a perfect match for us and we felt like home. We hope that Ida's apartment will be available when we visit Copenhagen next time.
Ida ist eine tolle Gastgeberin!!! Wir hatten vorab schon einen herzlichen Kontakt, viele Tipps von ihr haben unseren Aufenthalt erleichtert.
Die Wohnung ist sehr hübsch und persönlich eingerichtet, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt!!
Wir kommen gerne wieder!
Ida's place is a very cozy lovely place and convenient by public transportation. The host Ida provided detail information about public transportation ahead of time to us, which made our visit to Copenhagen smooth and pleasant. Unfortunately, due to the time constraint, we were not able to use her bicycle to stroll around the city, perhaps the next visit to Copenhagen.
I'm a Copenhagen based Scenographer and Designer.
I travel a lot and have been working with both art and design in different parts of the world. I plan to keep on working worldwide.
With my husband I have build a large ecological house in Denmark - and a small hut in Senegal - West Africa.
I'm a responsible and empathic person - I will take good care of your place while renting it.
I sometimes rent out my apartment in Copenhagen. I often stay at our house in the country side and I only need the apartment when I work on longer term projects in the city.
