The best Airbnbs in Copenhagen

You’ll struggle to find a more gob-smacking apartment in all of Copenhagen than this one: a two-storey penthouse with room for six, two bathrooms, two balconies, a spiral staircase and many, many more fancy touches. Immaculately well-decorated (including some fantastic hanging chairs), it’s the epitome of swish, stylish, practical Scandi design. And all this is just a few minutes’ walk from the Little Mermaid, Nyhavn and Amalienborg, ideally located to explore the Danish capital by foot, bike or boat. Honestly, if you can afford it, there are few places better.

Best for: bigger groups looking for the absolute best Copenhagen has to offer.

Sure, this slim three-storey house already looks pretty fascinating – and, dating all the way back to 1719, it certainly is – but it’s also a very romantic place to stay. Full of character, the home comes with a private courtyard, a cute patio and pretty much total privacy. And just in case you didn’t think it could get any more romantic, it’s also in Christianshavn, an immensely pretty Copenhagen neighbourhood known for its cobblestone streets and buzzing cafés.

Best for: romantic weekends with a heck of a lot of privacy.

Kids love stuff. Colourful stuff. Vibrant stuff. Literally anything that looks fun or weird. Which is why this apartment is so fantastic for families. Decorated top to bottom with everything from fascinating posters and insect taxidermy to quirky stools and light fittings, it even comes with its own playroom-themed kids’ bedrooms. Near Strøget shopping district and within walking distance of central Copenhagen, it’s the ideal family-friendly pad. 

Best for: fun families.

So green, so lush, so airy – this stylish rental is in Sundby, just far enough out from Copenhagen’s city centre to be significantly calmer and quieter but still within easy walking or biking distance to the metro. It’s also a cosy, stylish and well-equipped place that, as with the best bits of Danish interior design, puts comfort and cleanliness first. Needless to say, it’s a terrifically easy place to relax and take a breather in.

Best for: travellers looking for a calm, quiet base for their city trip.

Yep, not only does this place have that view, boasting extraordinary vistas of the Copenhagen skyline, but it’s got an incredible roof terrace. While that bit might be shared, the apartment does have its own private balcony. Aside from that, it’s a simple, affordable, comfortable rental with space for four guests and easy access to Copenhagen K – the oldest and most central part of the city.   

Best for: terrific views and easy access to all the tourist hotspots.

With its tall windows, full bookshelves and highly useful open-plan living area, you’d be forgiven for settling in like a Copenhagen local at this flat. It even comes with a shared courtyard, complete with apple tree and kids’ play area. Pretty dreamy, right? For bonus points, rent the apartment’s own motor-driven bicycle to get around town like a true Københavner.

Best for: families and small groups cosplaying as Københavners for the week.

You’re never far from the sea in Copenhagen, which means that going for a swim should – well, in the summer months, at least – always be on your agenda. This rental is just 500 metres from the beach – and not just any beach, the four-and-a-half kilometres of white sands of Amager. Its garden is also bordered by the moat of Kastrup Fort, which is just a few steps from the apartment.

Best for: beachside bliss.

Copenhagen is oft-ranked one of the world’s most expensive cities, so there’s a chance you might be looking to save a little accom cash to spend on other things on your trip to the Danish capital. If that’s the case, you might be looking for somewhere a little more affordable to stay – like this one. A neat and functional rental for two, it’s a cosy corner apartment with good bus and metro connections. And on top of all that, it’s also in Nørrebro, who was voted Time Out’s coolest neighbourhood in the world in 2021. Who says a lower budget mean you have to scrimp on quality, eh?

Down on one of the canals of the Teglholmen peninsula in Copenhagen’s southern harbour lies this floating gem: an old ferry which has been converted into a very striking Airbnb indeed. Featuring loads of space both outside and in, the rental is illuminated by huge windows that really make the most of being out on the water. Our highlight, however, has to be the below-deck double bed, which is up on stilts and really, really makes you feel like you’re on a maritime adventure.

Best for: sea-faring (sort of) adventurers.

Want to explore Copenhagen but also don’t want to miss out on the city’s lush surrounding countryside? Well, here’s the perfect in-between rental. In the western Copenhagen borough of Vanløse, this house is surrounded by great hiking trails and is right next to a small lake called Damhussøen. And don’t worry about being too far out of the city: while Vanløse isn’t in central Copenhagen, it’s well-connected and lies under 10 minutes from the centre by train.  

Best for: getting a bit more nature.
