Exceptionally clean, spacious and cozy. The apartment is modern, with large rooms, lots of light. We have a view of Knippels Bridge and the Canal. The style is danish minimalist / eclectic. The kitchen is big by danish standards. And so is the bathroom - and we also have a second toilet.
Free wifi (unlimited), washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, TV, cleaning, linen, towels, a bed for 2 people (very comfortable).
The bedroom is quite large, and has a view of the street and canal.
The room is just off the main living room - which is seldom actually used by the other housemates at night, so your area that you can use becomes even bigger! For extra privacy at night, you can shut the doors and close the curtains. You can close off the room if you want privacy, but still be part of the social atmosphere.
LOCATION & ATTRACTIONS...
Right in the centre of Copenhagen. Close to Nyhavn (550 m away), Parliament, The Royal Library Garden, The Black Diamond, Christianshavn and Amalienborg (The Royal Palace). Just 350 m to Kongens Nytorv metro station, which is your gateway to the public transport system, and will take you straight to the airport in 20 minutes. Strøget, the longest pedestrial mall in Europe, starts here also - and this end of the mall is in my opinion the nicer end!
View of the harbour and Knippels Bridge. If you walk up this same harbour, you will reach the statue of the Little Mermaid. It seriously doesn't get better any better for location!
CAFES & RESTAURANTS...
There are so many fantastic restaurants and cafes in the area that we love to go to. We have a list of the best of these and a map that we can give you. Let us know if you're interested in this!
If you're coming from the airport, you can easily get here on the Metro. Get off and Kongens Nytorv which is a 20 minute ride (sometimes it's only 15 minutes). We live 350 m away from the metro station. I have detailed directions on how to get here.
Kongens Nytorv has a metro, and lots of buses that go around Copenhagen.
Just around the corner is a bike shop, where you can rent bike either by the hour or the day at reasonable prices. Cycling in Copenhagen is the best way to get around.
We strive to keep the house clean and cozy - or as they call it in danish: hyggelig ['hoo-ga-lee']. It's a unique danish idea that one has a hyggelig life: "It's a deep sense of place and well-being; a feeling of friendship, warmth, contentment and peace with your immediate surroundings." Lighting candles. Reading a book under a warm blanket.
Otherwise, I think our main house rule is that we must always have more than enough coffee and dark chocolate in stock.
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you want more information.
Looking forward to hearing from you, Freya
My bf and I stayed with Freya and Peter when I was competing in Ironman Copenhagen and it was absolutely wonderful. Freya and Peter were incredibly friendly and very gracious hosts where they greeted us with coffee when we arrived. The apartment is very large and spacious and the location could not be better (especially if you are doing Ironman Copenhagen. The apartment is 2 blocks from the finish line and T2 is at the doorstep to the building where you pick up your bike at the end of the day!). I would definitely recommend staying here.
We stayed in the apartment for nealy a week, and we really enjoyed it. After a warm welcome , Peter gave us a spectacular view from a small tower on the roof and a good introduction on copenhagen. We loved the 2 rooms in this old building with stucco decoration, parcett floor and a great view on the Canal.Its a great place, very central to explore the lively city and as well the nearer suburbs.
Thanks for your hospitality. we could warmly recommend Peter and Freya, and their flathosts.
Our first experience with airbnb was a hit.We would like to see you again at our next dancing weekend in copenhagen.
This was truly the perfect place for our first Airbnb experience. Beautiful appartment, right in the heart of Copenhagen. Nicely decorated, tidy, but most of all very cosy ... we felt immediately at home! Peter was an excellent host: very helpful with all inside info on the city and right spots to visit! Great experience ... we became true Copenhagen fans in the meantime.
Freya's partner, Peter welcomed us with a cup of coffee and information on what to see and do in Copenhagen. We loved the location because it is within walking distance to all the sights. Also, very close to Nyhavn which is a popular area. The apartment is spacious and we enjoyed use of the kitchen. Even though this is a private room we were given total privacy. I highly recommend staying at Freya's apartment if you visit Copenhagen.
We had a great stay at Freya's. The room is very spacious, with large windows and a nice view on the canal. The apartment is clean and comfortable. It's also very central, with only a few minutes walk to Kongens Nytorv square, the metro station, the shopping street and Nyhavn. We couldn't find a better place to start our first AirBnb experience!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
