Cabinn Odense
Ranked #9 of 17 Hotels in Odense
Reviewed 8 April 2012

The Cabinn is a decent, no-nonsense budget hotel. If you've been to any of the economy class cabins of the ferries riding across the Baltic sea, you have an idea what to expect. The tiny room was well thought out and admirably functional, but I wouldn't call it an example of sleek Scandinavian design, the meh carpet pattern and jail-cell-like colour palette kind of ruined that effect. Still, it was clean, quiet and reasonably comfortable for a couple of nights' stay. Free WiFi was a plus, naturally, and the water heater was a nice touch as well. The puny little showerhead in the bathroom was a bit of a letdown though, I had some trouble rinsing my hair. Also, the bunk bed was quite narrow and had no kind of safety railings at all. I doubt I would have been able to fall asleep at the top bunk.

The breakfast buffet on the top floor was okay. However, I ended up eating overpriced 7/11 sandwiches from the train station for dinner, as the nearest supermarket I looked up on Google maps had apparently gone out of business.

This is definitely a place for budget travelers or others who just need a place to sleep for a night. If you stay longer, you might get "cabinn fever" ha-ha.

It's designed after cruise ship cabins, so you can expect what it would be like. If you're a claustrophobic, then I suggest you look for another place (we stayed at commodore room, but it was still very tiny). But you're not gonna find cheap place like this, let's face it, everything in Denmark is expensive.

The room was clean and quiet. Bed probably wasn't the most comfortable one but wasn't the worst. Breakfast is also affordable, with enough selection of food to choose from.

During my stay, they had some construction going on in their parking garage, so the receptionist told us where we could park our car for free.

Cabinn is right next to the Odense train station, and if you're hungry in the middle of the night, there's a McDonald near by!

My friends and I were traveling through Denmark and booked a night at this hotel. The other reviews are right. It is very small. The three of us had a tiny room with one mattress that pulled out from underneath the regular height bed plus a bunk (with no protective railing). The bathroom was tiny, but the whole place was clean and fairly comfortable. If you're only spending one night, it's perfect. We were there over the weekend, and there was free parking in the lot across the street. Be sure to ask about it!

One of a Danish chain of hotels. Very close to the station. Very clean. Single bunk beds with ladder on wall. Small WC and shower. If you forget to flick the switch after a shower you will get wet when you next use the handbasin. No plugs in the sink.

Tea making facility but no milk when we were there. No fridge/minibar. Breakfast was available at 60 kroner but we did not bother. However there are few breakfast places in Odense apart from the McDonalds next door and what is on the station.
OK for one night and - for Denmark - cheapish. Only hostels cost less.

This budget hotel is not bad if you are looking for a cheap room and like simplicity. But don't stay for more than one night or you get mad. You feel like you're on the run for something and need to spend the night in a caravan - at least when you get in the bathroom. Luckily it's clean and breakfast is good with nice views over the city. Great place if you're Dutch and like caravanning, avoid if you're anything else.

Only when arriving at this hotel in Odense I understood its name: Cabin inn, it is indeed like sleeping in a cabin on a big ship. Our room was for 4 and rather small with two bunk beds, one for the kids, one for us! It had been years since I'd slept in a bunk bed so it was quite fun but I would not stay more than one night. I believe they do have other 'normal' rooms too by the way.

The price was good for a family of four; we paid 800 Kroner with breakfast.
The batheroom is so small that you can brush your teeths, sit on the loo and shower at the same time...Ha ha

One serious warning...we came by park and parked at the public garage near by, which was free on Sunday night. On Monday morning my husband put money in the machine for the parking with his credit card..He put the maximum amount which was one hour...
We arrived only 10 minutes after the hour just to find a parking fine on our windscreen for alomst 100 Euro. Ridiculous...really out of proportion. Danmark in general I found very expensive and rather over-regulated but of course that has nothing to do with this hotel, which I found was good value for money! Espeically with free Wi-Fi!

If you're looking for a centrally located cheap place to camp out while you're in Odense or exploring Funen then look no further; Cabinn Odense is a great place.

Centrally located right next to the central train station and less than five minutes walk from the house of H.C. Andersen or the city center, the rooms are so tiny that they are almost closet like. But this is really all you need, as it's just a base. The bathroom is the size of a cupboard, but again it works and it's what you need.

Price, quality and convenience are ideally matched here, and I recommend the place to anyone just looking for a great place to crash.
