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
The apartment has a common living area and kitchen area, which your free to use, and you can of course cook food for yourself. You will have a couple of free shelves in the the fridge.
Check-in is pretty flexible, we are often close to home, especially because it's so central.
No smoking inside the apartment.
We just like to be respectfully quiet when we know others are sleeping. Also tidying up after ourselves. Rules of just common sense apply - we've never had any problems.
A brilliant first Airbnb experience. The apartment couldn't be in a better location– close to the bike rental, water, and main sites. Five stars!
Our stay in Copenhagen was quite wonderful in Freya's room. The bedroom was spacious and clean. We had a great view of the river and lucky enough to see the fireworks from our bed during summer. Freya's roommate John was extremely friendly and helpful, giving us local tips and hangouts.
Exploring the city by bike was wonderful and there is a bike shop two blocks away as well. It was an amazing way to begin our trip. I only hope that every other place has as much warmth and welcoming atmosphere. We would definitely stay here again.
It's a sweet central appartment, and freya gave us all the informations we need to enjoy our trip. So really nice place to discover and visit Copenhague !
Freya's place is amazing - the flat is really open and bright, heaps of space. Everyone in the house is friendly and chatty, very easy going. The room we stayed in was HUGE and has probably the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on.
Location can't be better - buses and metro are a few minutes walk away, canals with restaurants and bars are all a couple of minutes away (can see them from the windows) and groceries and other shops are very close as well.
Freya was very accommodating and helpful, she knows the area well and pointed us around on a map so we knew where we were. Also had some recommendations for where to hang out away from tourist traps.
Great place, highly recommend it.
Freya was such an excellent guess, and always was willing to give me advice and hep us get around the city. Fully recommended.
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.
I moved to Denmark from Australia in early 2012, and live with my Danish boyfriend Peter. I absolutely love Denmark, and I'm enjoying creating a new life here and learning about danish traditions and ways of life.
I have used air bnb many times myself when I travelled through Europe, and I truly loved it when the hosts would make us feel welcome, and I hope to to the same for my guests when they visit us in Copenhagen.
I love to travel, (who doesn't??) I also love dark chocolate, coffee, and a good glass of red wine.
Since I moved to Denmark, cooking has become a real passion of mine, and I love to whip up some danish food in the kitchen, and have 'hyggelig' times eating and relaxing.
As a host, I'm very relaxed, and like to give the guest space. I'm happy to tell the guest all about Denmark, and give information on the top places so that you can explore.
