About the property

Quiet 2 bedroom apartment w. livingroom,kitchen,bathroom w tub, and 2 balconies

The livingroom opens to its full width towards the large west-facing balcony, which is bathed in sun till sunset and you have the morning sun directly on the smaller balcony in front of one of the bedrooms - so when the sun shines in Copenhagen, this is the place to be. The house also has a big common terasse with grill and sitting facilities. In evenings people mostly enjoy sitting on the quai along the Canal.

There are wonderfull restaurants (Noma,worlds best), bars and shops all around the neighborhood. Electric bicycles for rent 2 min away. 5 min to Holmen with all the Art-schools, the Opera, the Hose of Architecture. 2 min to Metro 10 minutes to Beach and 15 min to Airport. Take the bike and enjoy the nature of Christiania and have a look at all the small selfmade Houses along the waterfront mixed with old buildings from 17-18 th century.

About Malene Ravn

I am Architect and Film director.

Why Malene Ravn chose Denmark

When I first saw this appartment I fell totaly in love with it, even if I had another, twice the size, on the other side of Christianshavn and so I waited until it became vacant...

Florida Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying at Malene's place. When we (Me, wife and two kids, age 14 and 16) arrived for our 5 day stay she met us at the apartment and explained everything to us and helped us get acquainted with the area. Lots of bakeries, restaurants and shops in the area including supermarkets that you can walk to which is good because the restaurants in Copenhagen are not cheap. This apartment is in Christianhaven which is a short walk (about 15-20 minutes)) to Nyhavn and easy access to many sights. Even easier and quicker by bike. Copenhagen is very small / condensed and it would not be impracticable (But would take some time) to walk to almost every site in town and very easy by bike. There is also a good bus and metro system with very easy access from the apartment. This apartment has lots of character and when you stay here you really feel like a local. Very safe neighborhood and apartment. Good laundry facility which we made use of in the complex but you will need to sign up for times but we had no problem getting a few loads done. The view at the balcony is exactly as the photo. My wife is an artist and sat on the balcony for countless hours painting. My kids also very much enjoyed the area being locals for 5 days and it was nice they had their own room with separate beds. I highly recommend this apartment and would stay again.

Charming, comfortable and best of all the location on the canal

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was large, charming and the balcony was a plus. We had most of our meals there while watching the people and canal boats pass by. It was more than wonderful..we had the feeling of being one of the locals.

Best of all NO NEED for a car...everything was within walking distance.

Only just returned home last night and are ready to go back!!

Thank You Malene for everything.

Wonderful, Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Arrived at apartment, late in the evening, to a wonderful welcome from our host Malene Apartment was easy to find after a 15 min metro ride from the airport. Regardless of the hour, Malene took the time to familiarize us (4 friends) with the apartment, amenities in the local area and places of interest further afield. Such a lovely and interesting person, thank you Malene. The apartment offered ample space and an extremely relaxed haven at the end of our sightseeing days and we cannot fault anything it offered. Comfy, cosy and no issue with hot water running out with four to shower in the morning. (Something we've experienced in previous properties!). The situation was also perfect for us, easy to walk out from and visit the sights, with public transport close by if required, whilst quiet and peaceful in the evenings. If returning to Copenhagen we will definitely be in touch with Malene. Our group looks to visit different places during our biannual jaunts but we all agreed we would pocket this apartment and take it with us, if we could. :)

Charming Flat in a Great Location, but the Unit Needs Updating

  • 4 of 5

As mentioned by others, this is a great location right on the canal of Christianshavn. Also an easy walk to Nyhavn, where you can enjoy the great restaurants and get on the 48 hour hop on / hop off boat and bus tours which is a great way to get around and see the city. The apartment is sun filled and clean, and we really enjoyed sitting on the balcony, enjoying coffee and people watching. Malene was great – she had fresh flowers for us, spent time acclimating us to the area, and even made a special trip back when we requested extra linens.

Our only complaint is that the unit definitely needs updating. We didn’t mind the décor, which one could describe as “shabby chic,” but the bathroom is especially dated and not comfortable in terms of showering or bathing. The furniture in the living room and balcony are very dated and not especially well made. The laundry facility is in a separate until altogether, and you have to “sign up” for dates/times to use the washer and dryer. The apartment is well secured, but there is no lighting in the entryway when you come in during the evening which we found to be problematic.

All in all, I would recommend the apartment for all of its positive qualities. But if you are someone that expects everything to be just so and in great condition, this may not be the place for you.

Location and security

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, near buses and the Metro, beautiful scenery on a canal, very safe neighborhood. We slept with the windows open and listened to church bells. Best is Malene who is hospitality personified, provides annotated maps of the area, restaurant recommendations, and transit info.
