Hotel Osterport
Ranked #74 of 118 Hotels in Copenhagen
Reviewed 15 September 2013

By Copenhagen standards this hotel is reasonably priced. My room was basic and not very big, some of the fitted furniture was a little scuffed but it was very clean. The public areas were comfortable and attractive with plenty of room to sit and lounge, work or read before going to bed. The buffet breakfast was plentiful.

Although next to the railway (my room overlooked it) with the windows closed the trains didn't keep me awake.

Very well positioned within about 15 to 20 minutes brisk walk to the center of Copenhagen and right next to Osterport rail station.

I'd stay there again.

If you come by train this hotel is situated only a couple of yards from the station. That is convenient but on the other hand trains make a lot of noice. My recommendation is to book a room away from the rails. We were placed there from the beginning but managed to change thanks to a friendly receptionist. Also watch out if you cannot sleep with your partner in a grandlit that is one big bed. Most of the rooms have these beds. The standard over all was normal and the breakfast ok.

Room Tip: Room on the left hand side of the corridor away from the rails.

I almost feel my review is unnecessary because other travelers have already said what needs to be said about this hotel. So to reiterate, It's appearance is two stars at best. The service is lacking. When we checked in the person at the desk ignored us for about five minutes and then quickly dismissed us once he gave us the keys. There was no instruction of Wifi (which rarely works), breakfast (a big upcharge), checkin/checkout procedures, as you might expect. Our room was dingy and smelt like vinegar. The only 'toiletries' supplied by the hotel is a wall mounted soap dispenser, which they claim is good for hair and body. BRING YOUR OWN. The location is good for seeing the Little Mermaid and walking around the Kastellet park - also good if you're traveling in and out of town by train. However, there are no metro lines connecting you with sites in the city center. We were a little aggravated by the transportation by the end of the trip. The noise, as some travelers have mentioned, did not bother us, but we were on the far side of the building. Overall much could be improved. It is ridiculous that this is the quality you get for that much money.

Being located opposite Osterport Station means you can get to-from the airport and other locations in Copenhagen cheaply and easily. Oh, and there is free wifi.

That's where the good bit ends.

As you can see from photos supplied, the building is laid out RIGHT beside the railway tracks. Of course this means it is noisy and it is the only hotel I have ever stayed in that provides ear plugs in every room. I was reminded of the scene in the original Blues Brothers film where Elwood takes his brother back to his room. There is no record player or facility in the room to make dry toast, but otherwise very similar. Google "Blues Brothers Elwood's room" for details.

The rooms are small and poorly constructed, with flimsy sticking wardrobe doors. The atmosphere is like a school dormitory, or more likely an open prison. In fact, some Danish prisons are better furnished than this hotel. I say open prison, only because the walls might not be thick enough to prevent a determined escapee from making a break for it.

Normally, this sort of establishment would fall under the category of somewhere cheap and convenient to stay. That is, until you consider the price. I paid a little over US$240 for the one night I stayed here (best available online price), which equates to absolutely the worst value for money of any place I have ever stayed. But this is Copenhagen, which suffers from a serious shortage of hotel rooms, with the inevitable consequences. Assuming you can find a hotel at all at short notice, then this might be the best you can get. That said, staying in say, Bangkok, you could expect similar standard of accomodation in a hotel paid for by the hour. Allegedly.

Staff were quite helpful. After all, it's not their fault.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front mean your bed is 5 metres from the tracks, while at the back, it is 10 metres fro...

We were nicely surprised with the hotel services. We got clean room on the opposite side than railway was, for the breakfast we could choose fresh cheese, ham, eggs, pancakes, fruits, vegetables and different kinds of bread. The location is very close to the city centrum so everything was optimal for us.

I stayed in the hotel for six nights in the end of August. The hotel is very near to the railway lines and train stations. My room is on the ground floor just 3 meters away from my room are the railway lines. I cannot sleep at night, being woken up by the sound and vibrations of the trains. The back door of my room is not secured. There is no grill, anyone can enter in the room through the back door.
We get robbed just about 100 meters away from the hotel on the 4th day of our stay.
I will never come to Copenhagen again and will never advised anyone to stay in this terrible hotel.

If you want to be within walking distance of the Little Mermaid and one of the metro lines And you don't mind Not having your own heating and air conditioning in your room (these are building controlled only) with inconsistent service and mediocre food, then this place is for you. Our room smelt bad (faintly of sewage). It was stuffy and we could not open the window as there was nothing to prevent someone from just walking in. However, if you are on a budget seriously this place is basic and is just ok so fine for that use. There are some very nice restaurants near by.
