Rent a Room Copenhagen
Ranked #24 of 42 Copenhagen B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Locating the hotel was a bit difficult because of Google Maps, who register it under number 12 of Amagerbrogade street, whereas the main part of the hotel is in number 4. The owner Emil was waiting for us so there was no problem after we called him and he was nice in explaining a bit about the city and what is there to see. The place itself is very nice and super cozy. Our room was like from 19th century France, with the decorated furniture and a huge romantic painting above our heads. There are two shared bathrooms, one kitchen with tea and coffee and one living room for (I think) 8 rooms on the floor (so it might get tight in theory, but we had no problem with that). I guess the level of comfort depends also on your co-visitors, as the walls are rather thin and you can hear people discussing in the living room, but we had a good experience for the three nights.
Besides thin walls (through which we could hear a party on another floor), the only negative was an aspect that reflects the old-stylishness of the place – no air conditioning. It was extremely hot and the only way how to survive in the room was to open the window to the street – which was extremely noisy on a Friday night. As this is once again related to the noise, I would go for ear-plugs.

When i decided to book, there wasnt many options left. This wasnt too bad, clean and not bad location and owner/ manager was nice. The only complaint really is the noise level, you can hear every movement. But it wasnt too bad

I stayed here for a couple of nights during a work trip. The checkin was very easy, and I felt immediately at home in the nice large room with pretty antique furniture. I was able to get online straight away - very important for a work trip! The other guests were friendly and it was useful having a shared kitchen so I could make my own breakfasts and lunches.
There is easy access to very pretty canal walks, and the centre of town is only 20 mins' pretty walk away.
I would recommend this place for work or leisure.

Room Tip: I had a room over the road but wasn't bothered by any street noise. The bare floorboards mean th...

The hostel is located in amagerbrogade street, right in between the metro stations Amagerbro and Christiansvahn. There is a bus station right outside and an good italian restaurant just across the street (rimini restaurant). We paid 900dkk (124euros) for two nights for a 2-bed room.
The rooms are quite small and basic with just the beds and a TV. The bathrooms and kitchen are shared and always clean. The only drawback is that the two bathrooms sometimes do not suffice for the 10 rooms of the hostel.

This apartment is a hidden gem in the amagerbrogade area of Copenhagen just a 10 minute walk from Christianshavn and 20 minutes from Tivoli gardens.

The bed room itself was decent with lovely bed linen. The apartment had a luxurious lounge area with paintings and decorative vintage chairs. The kitchen was spacious. It also had two bathrooms and a laundry area.

I would definitely stay in this accom again as I was very impressed with what I got for my money!

Rent A Room Copenhagen could be truly great, as the rooms are beautiful and clean, the TVs nice, and the WiFi top notch. Emil, who welcomed us, was also very kind.
That being said, it lacks a few small but very necessary touches to make it truly worthwhile: for a start, free earplugs are a must. We booked this place thinking we could handle the creaky floorboards since we live in an old apartment, but the reviews on here mentioning noise are correct - the doors and walls seem very thin, and I could hardly sleep our first night there because of noisy Germans.
Secondly, the blinds are useless. We consistently got woken up by the daylight, and in one of the rooms we stayed in there didn't seem to be a blind at all. Installing proper blinds is another must.
Thirdly, one of the showers was a bit odd temperature-wise - it kept veering between hot and cold, which was quite unpleasant when the weather was so cold. Maybe this was fixed, however.
Finally, it's true the location isn't ideal since public transport was much more expensive than we had anticipated, but this is not a major problem as the bus 2A (or is it A2?) stops nearby. All in all, the value was decent. It's just that this place could be much more welcoming with a few extra touches: a proper reception area with free flyers and free earplugs would already make a big difference, and proper blinds are a must if you don't want to wake up early in the morning.

On the plus side...the kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom was ok. It's about a 20 minute walk to the town centre. The room we had was adequate for the money and a lot of the TV channels are in English, with Danish subs. There is a good Supermarket just 10 mins walking distance away. Host was friendly enough.
On the minus,, we booked a Superior room but were given a rather plainer room than the photos, which we only found out because another couple spent the night in a single room due to an over booking, and were given our Superior room as compensation. We didn't realise until after the first night. Those 4 poster bed, large rooms are the ones you should get if you book a Superior room. It's only about a 15 minute walk from the Metro but you have to keep watching the door numbers. When you arrive, there is no sign that says "Rentaroom". Just a lot of door bells with labels. It is a large apartment block, with private flats, as well as a Bed and Breakfast. We were taken about 20 meters up the street to another set of apartments for our acommodation. The room was OK but large cobwebs in the ceiling corners and the sheets were not ironed so it wasn't absolutely clear if they had been previously used. We closely inspected them and they appeared to be clean but I normally expect crisp, pressed sheets so you know they haven't been slept on by someone else. There was no fruit, as advertised. The teabags were never used by anyone...they are all herbal ones but the was a jar of Goldblend coffee.
The worst thing about this acommodation, and the reason we would never stay again is the noise. Not from the street...it's fairly quiet at the back where we stayed. It's because it has wooden floors throughout and because the ceilings are high, the noise is amplified and you can hear EVERYTHING. Every time someone comes in through the main door to the flats, or uses the kitchen or opens or closes their apartment door, the noise is horrendous. We were unfortunate enough to have a room next to the toilet/bathroom and even though people are aware of the noise they are making, we were disturbed from early in the morning, when we needed extra sleep to late at night. You can hear every single noise from all of the flats. The only solution to that would be to carpet the whole place. If someone has an early flight, everyone will be woken, unless you can sleep through a bomb going off!. It was good value, don't get me wrong, and we love a bargain, but the noise aspect, especially when you have had a long tiring day would put us off...good sleep is priceless!

Room Tip: Google rooms for rent..a lot of private owners rent out a room at very good prices...wish we had don...
