We leave a week from today for there. I've been there a few times before staying in hotels and hostels. This time we're trying Air BnB so will leave you a post after our experience.

I was in Copenhagen a few weeks ago and stayed in an AirBnB for the first time. I stayed in the Norrebro area and my AirBnB was about a 10 minute walk from Norreport Station. I stayed in an apartment along the lake and it was beautiful! The room only had one bed so it may be a little tight for two people otherwise I would highly recommend the apartment I stayed in.

Since Copenhagen is a very walkable city, I thought it was a great area to stay in - lots of good restaurants and cafes. However, if you want to be close to the train station or Nyhavn, I know there are good AirBnBs in those areas too.

I stayed in this apartment in September. It was just me but it would also be comfortable for two people. It was in a very secure building, super central location, and the price was reasonable. Nice decor, lots of books, windows on both end of the apartment so it's very light and bright. The management company was flight to Copenhagen was cancelled and I had to be very creative to get there. Even though I ended up arriving to the apartment at midnight there was someone to meet me, show me the apartment, and make sure I was OK. Highly recommend!

Here is a quick low down on the different neighbourhoods:
Østerbro = full of moms pushing strollers, they only eat organic/gluten free and drink soy lattés.
Nørrebro = full of students and immigrants, cheap beer and kebabs.
Frederiksberg = full of posh elderly Ladies wearing fur.
Vesterbro = Bearded hipsters and the occational lady if the night.
City center = tourist and in the weekends drunken teenagers from the subburbs.

Morten - absolutely loved your reply. It also showed me that the "world" is the same all over - just change the name of the neighborhood! We definitely have the same in the States. Thanks for a good laugh!

Morten.. Do they still have the automat food shops/ windows with food turnstile on Stroget for late night drunks?

JJ-nowVoyager since I am not a tourist or a drunken teenager from the suburbs any more, I don't know about the late night snacking options on Strøget. I would assume that there are several options though.

We stayed at an airbnb in Ostebro which was a short walk from the Svanmollen station. I really liked the neighborhood, and it was really convenient to get to the city center by taking the 1A bus.

My husband & I stayed in a great & reasonably priced Airbnb in Copenhagen May 15-18. It was easy to get to via bus from the train station. We reached the train station from the airport after flying EasyJet from Bristol England. While it had a double bed the LR had a sofa one person could use (not a sofa bed) but designed in a way that does double duty. We climbed a short set of stairs to get in the building & another set a little longer to access the apartment. The host, David may even offer an air mattress or know of someone else hosting an Airbnb in the same general area. This apartment's interior was modern & stylish. We enjoyed our stay and felt safe & comfortable. We just needed to be mindful of the cyclists! We appreciated that Netto"a reasonably priced supermarket was nearby. We used buses to get around finding our Copenhagen card useful for public transport and sights. Here is the listing:
