My first Airbnb
Have you ever used Airbnb? As my first time in the beautiful Danish city, I felt that staying in someone's home was the best way to go about seeing the true Copenhagen. There are a few thing I decide on when looking at a place; location (so it's fairly central), amenities, style (so it's somewhat reminiscent of the country I'm in) and obviously; price. Sometimes I go for hostels as you meet amazing people and save money but this time I chose a flat with a woman called Isabella on Vesterbrogade; 15 minutes from town and central station, it was a perfect choice. After climbing the 8 flights of stairs (tough, but pretty standard for apartments in Copenhagen) I entered the gorgeously bohemian place that I'd be staying in.
With a mini wall of books, a beautiful desk for writing on as well as quirky artwork and pieces scattered around, it offered a bit of character that you wouldn't get in a hotel. I ended up having the flat to myself despite it being a flatshare as Isabella stayed at her partners, but not before greeting me the first night and letting me know of some great places to try, as well as showing me how things worked as well as telling me to drink as much of her matcha as I wanted (hooray!). It was next to some amazing restaurants, shops and bakeries so meant running out at 7pm offered many things to choose from.
Obviously a few things, like the shower door being a bit broken and the walls being plastered with wall mounts missing, means it isn't perfect. However I actually learnt many buildings don't have a bathroom and you have to run across the road to use one so small luxuries! It t was clean, cosy and I spent many an evening there relaxing with a book for the true hygge lifestyle. At £29 a night in a notoriously expensive city, that's not too shabby. And for a first Airbnb experience, it was perfect and I'll be sure to use them again.
