This dream of a big-city apartment is located in a classic 17th-century grade II listed town house-located on the 2nd floor with its own entrance and private use of both kitchen and bath. Both the living room, dining room and bedroom are decorated with an eye for both atmosphere and comfort. If you appreciate class and style you will most certainly feel at home, also for longer stays. The apartment is located right at Christianshavns Canal, in a neighbourhood which counts both cosy cafes, bars and internationally recognized gourmet restaurants and green oases. Short distance to Copenhagen's most famous sights, good transport links to both the airport and train station, making the apartment a perfect base for both holiday and business trips.
Guests have free access to their own floor with bath, kitchen, living room, dining area and bedroom. There are two large electrically adjustable beds in the bedroom. Functional kitchen with all facilities including dishwasher, nespresso coffee machine, kettle, oven/microwave and all in glass, porcelain and cutlery. Wi-fi internet access and TV. Dressing gowns, hairdryer and ironing board/iron are also at your disposal.
Landlord lives in the property and is present upon arrival and departure. Can be contacted during your stay.
With my daughter studying in Copenhagen for the fall semester, I decided to visit her during the traditional American holiday of Thanksgiving. For two months I perused hotel after hotel listing, and although many of these listings looked nice, the majority of the reviews noted that the hotel rooms were small and spaces were tight. So I decided to look at listings on HomeAway to see if an apartment might provide the space I was looking for. Additionally, I was thinking that I might want to cook a traditional Thanksgiving meal for my daughter and some of her college friends who were also away from home, so an apartment with a kitchen might be the best fit.
You should know that I have booked other stays through HomeAway, and I always carefully read the guests reviews as an important measure of the quality of the rental. I have never seen more glowing reviews than I read on this one, so I decided to book it.
Well, I am here to tell you that even with all of the glowing reviews written before mine, I still was unprepared for how wonderful this rental and its hosts are!!!
Brigitte and Eva lovingly maintain a stunning, sunny, cozy and carefully restored apartment that is located in a vibrant and conveniently located part of Copenhagen. If you stay here, you will get the sense of the real Copenhagen and will feel a part of this beautiful city. The fact that the Metro station is just across the street means that you can get to any part of the city within minutes with this very efficient and prompt public transportation system.
As others have said, the apartment is absolutely beautiful and full of light and the photos on this site well represent what you will find.
What I would also like to share with you is the amazing generosity and humanity both Brigitte and Eva showed us during our stay. As I explained, it was my hope to put on a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for my daughter and her friends. These ladies did everything possible to help me bring this dream to fruition! Although the kitchen in this apartment is beautifully stocked, they provided me with additional silverware, dishes, bowls, and wine glasses for the number of guests I had. They also provided more chairs, elegant platters, serving pieces, and even a gravy boat! And when the 15-pound turkey wouldn't fit in the apartment's oven, they opened their apartment to me to cook it in their larger oven! So stop looking any further for a place to stay in Copenhagen - you have found the perfect spot! :)
We loved Birgitte's apartment! It's very well equipped and the views from living room are wonderful. It felt like such a comfortable and warm place to stay, with absolutely everything we needed. The location is great, short walk to town and very close to lots of other attractions. Having a canal right outside the living room made for such a special feeling. The apartment was also clean, spacious and welcoming.
Birgitte was an amazing host. So kind to us and very patient, warm and welcoming with lots of great tips.
We adored Copenhagen and our visit was made even more special by staying in such a nice apartment with such a helpful host. We'd recommend the apartment to anyone and hope to return again soon!
We really enjoyed out stay at Douglas Apartment and hope to return next year. Booking was easy and Birgitte was very quick to reply to emails. Birgitte made us feel very welcome and the tour that she gave us when we arrived was helpful so we knew where everything was. The lounge is spacious and light and the kitchen is well equipped including a Nespresso coffee machine. The apartment is only fifteen minutes from the airport by metro and nearby there are coffee shops, a delicious bakery and restaurants. We enjoyed visiting the botanical gardens, swimming in the outdoor pool at Islands Brygge and kayaking.
Cannot imagine a better place to stay in Copenhagen. The apartment is ideally located on a busy (but quiet) street, with famous bakery diagonally across the street, and a metro station, bus stop, and supermarket within a block. The apartment is large with plenty of daylight and is very well equipped. It is one floor up via a steep but manageable stairway with sturdy railing. The owner lives in the apartment above, and operates the store below, which handles many attractive items, some of which you will find in the apartment. The owner could not be more generous, kind, friendly and helpful.
Convenient location. Great pastry shop, metro, grocery store, and restaurants all steps away from the front door. The owners, Birgitte and Eva, are both great hosts with superb hospitality skills. They are always willing to answer any questions you may have and continually go out of their way to make sure your visit to Copenhagen is the best. The beds were the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. The apartment was well maintained and very clean. There is city noise (if you open the windows) due to the great location of being in the center of the city, but if you keep the windows closed then all is fine. We enjoyed our stay and meeting Birgitte and Eva. They are both very kind and wonderful people.
300 yr/o bldg with character, only about 100 yards from a Metro station. Excellent bakery, a grocery store, other shops within 1/2 block. Right on one canal & great little restaurant/bar there at canal side. Several good & reasonably priced other restaurants nearby.
Birgitte is a pleasant, friendly, available, and excellent hostess.
This truly deserves maximum star rating!
Beautiful well-appointed apartment in the charming and trendy district of Christianshavn, directly by the Canal. The apartment is restored in 2013. Modern facilities furnished with a sense of atmosphere and comfort. Only 75 metres to the Metro. Copenhagen Airport in only 15 minutes. Close to Tivoli and shopping.
The area is booming with cosy cafes, bars and restaurants including 3 with Michelin stars - Noma, Kadeau and Era Ora.
