The set up was a little odd with there being no desk staff and you enter using a code but surprisingly it works well!
I was worried when I realized it was in the red light district but it is perfectly fine. We never experienced any trouble. The room was clean and came with a double bed, bathroom with bath/ shower/ towels/ soap. The room also comes with a flat screen TV and a kettle and tea making facilities. I would recommend bringing your own mugs if you plan on using them though as only plastic cups are provided.
All in all it was pretty good, very cheap and close to the main strip in Copenhagen as well as the train station. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Historical Traveler Reviews Omena Hotel Copenhagen
Pleasant hotel - very central
A pleasant 3 star hotel - we stayed for 4 nights at the start of a tour of Denmark - we were allocated Room 234 - which was a huge room with a double bed (2 singles pushed together) and a very large bathroom. The room was down a small corridor of the main corridor - great as you can't here folks when you are sleeping, no noise at night as at the back of the building overlooking a courtyard. Don't let it worry you that it's in the red light district. not a problem - very central hotel - right near the train station - we didn't have breakfast at the hotel - we found the little bakery on the corner opposite the back end of the station sold very yummy danish pastries and juice.
After our week long tour of Funen and Jutland we stayed again for one night, we stayed in a room on the 4th floor - facing the road, glad we didn't have this room for 4 nights - you could here people going along the corridor outside the room and on the floor above - we were right on the ramp - so think that was the problem. Couldn't fault the room though - clean, comfy and light, small bathroom.
Beds were really comfortable in both rooms.
Would stay again if I was to visit Copenhagen

Things to keep in mind before booking here:
1)It has impossibly long, narrow hallways with steep angles to traverse. Terrible for wheelchair users.
2)Check in is not until 2 p.m., but they will let you stow your luggage.
3)Breakfast is probably not included in an online quoted price. I saw very few people eating it.
4)Desk staff are very formal and unfriendly.
Good reasons to book here:
1)An internet terminal in the lobby.
2)Very clean and nice windows, tho your view is of a strip bar.
3)Lovely spotless bathtub, a rarity in the Copenhagen tourist hotel district.
In short, it's ok if you can get a bargain rate, but don't pay full price.
Very, Good and Central
A very nice hotel 5 minutes walk from central station. Friendly staff, Good spotless rooms and powerful showers. Excellent Hot and Cold Buffet Breakfast included in price (nobody ever asked to see your room number). Double bed is actually 2 singles pushed together but I've heard that this is standard in Denmark. Great city to visit. Good deal with Expedia and would certainly stay again.
Big rooms, but need upgrading!
Stayed for 2 nights in August.
We got a big room with a big double bed that we sunk right through!
Woke up in mornings with back-pain.
And the interior... ugh! Dreadful. In desperate need of upgrading. No coffe/tea maker in the room and no mini-bar. Nice bathroom.
Staff not particulary friendly, and I have seen better breakfast buffets in other hotels in the same chain.
Rates are way too high for the standard.
I would not choose this hotel again if I'd go back to Copenhagen (which is not very likely).
Stayed 3 Nights end of August 2004.
Nice 3* Hotel, Excellent central location, 2-3 minutes from the Central Station and a short walk away from Tivoli, shopping, Central sq, Tourist info office etc. Right in the middle of the Hotel Street. Was a bit apprehensive when booking as guides stated it was in the red light district, but nothing to worry as hotel is up the end near the station and there was only one strip club in the vicinity.
Rooms are comfortable, but the hotel is spread across 2 or 3 buildings, so some rooms are a good walk down long narrow corridors. Smallish bath, no amenities though, soap/shampoo dispenser on the wall gave it a cheap feel. Make sure you request a Non Smoking room if you are a non smoker.
Excellent Breakfast spread ( Not very often does one find American breakfast offered in continental Europe!!)
Got a really good deal through Expedia. Staff ok, allowed us to store bags as rooms were not ready and also to store them till leaving for the Airport late in the day. Free Internet (only 1 PC) , but always occupied by guests (even when we returned at 1.30am one night!) - so never got a chance to use it, hence cannot comment on speed etc.
I stayed at this hotel for two nights in July 2004 on a leisure city break. I booked the hotel on Expedia and the flights with Easyjet. One of my reasons for choosing this hotel was it's proximity to the Central Station and therefore ease of transport to and from the airport and within the city. It could not have been better, in fact you could see the side of the station building from it. It is also only a short walk to Tivoli where I spent a beautiful evening. The Strøget shopping area is also not far away.
The room was fine, nice modern bathroom, spacious and good storage space. There was plenty of choice at breakfast although the beakfast area was a little crowded around 09:00. Internet is available in the foyer of the hotel FREE.
I would stay in this hotel again if going to Copenhagen which no doubt I will. Great value for money.
Comfortable & European
A perfectly located hotel - if you come out of the back of the train station the hotel's in view right on the corner of Colbjornsengade opposite the Ibis Star Hotel. Lovely 3*, nice rooms but nothing flash. Quite impressed with the bathroom with its walk in shower unit. We got a silly cheap rate on Expedia so were delighted. After all, all we did there was shower & sleep so who cares about luxury. Super breakfasts served downsatsirs very adequate. It's worth fillng your belly as Copenhagen is expensive and it'll save you buying lunch. Hotel ideal for Tivoli & Stroget and a 30 minute walk upto Nyhavn. I'd stay there again without any doubt.
Rooms are big, clean and comfortable enough. The closet was kind of strange but useful anyway. Good security as u need your electronic key to use the lift and go to rooms floor.
The stuff of the hotel was very nice.
What I liked the most was the wonderful breakfast!. All kind of things you may want, and all of them of a good quality, for sure this is the strong point of this hotel!.
And they also gave us a free snack from 6pm to 10pm, in which you only have to pay the drinks. Actually this snack was a buffet which didnt have a lot of things, but the necessary if you want to have a free dinner, with hot meals. It was ok for me, and even better if you think about the expensive prices of Copenhagen.
The hotel is placed in a very good place if u want to make some turism, as its located in the building together with the central station, u have a car rental and all the shops in the world nearby. And no noise at all in the rooms.
The only problem is that the hotel is in the red light district, but its not a very problematic place, specially if u dont plan to be hanging around in the street very late in the night.
I must confess that I was a bit scared about what i was going to find, but it was a nice surprise, but hey, dont expect a four stars hotel. If u want a place to make tourism, I highly recommend it!.
Clean and Spacious if Somewhat Bland
We were pleasantly surprised by several aspects of this hotel. Firstly, our room was very spacious for a three star hotel and had a large bathroom with a heated floor. The room was clean and tidy and regularly visited by cleaning staff. Reception staff were welcoming and in most cases very friendly. The hotel is fairly close to the Copenhagen red light district though this should not present a problem for guests since there is no need to venture into it to get to the train station or city centre. The buffet breakfast was ample and varied, more than enough to choose from. The hotel lacks character though this wasn't something we had anticipated. Its close proximity to both the train station and the city centre made it an excellent choice for our short stay in Copenhagen.
Average 3 star
Location is very close to station so no need to get a taxi. Although beware of pickpockets walking between station and hotel - they did try and approach us and were whistling in code but we realised what they were doing! Majority of hotels seem to be in this area. Pleasant hotel reception and friendly staff. Breakfast excellent - a choice of continental and cooked. Rooms were basic, although fairly large for a triple - we were lucky we were overlooking the street. Good security on lifts as you need your room key card to use the lift from reception to bedrooms. Although Kakadu nightclub was opposite the hotel and a strip bar a little further up the street we didn't hear any noise. The only negative - the room did smell of smoke.

We Arrived in Copenhagen with no travel problems. It was the first rain we have had in around 6 weeks.
The train station is right next to the airport, so we bought our tickets and after a little help from 2 different people, we found the right train. A third nice person let us know that Central Station is called Copenhagen H on the map. …
... stop was the Tivoli gardens which had the tallest carousel in the world as well as a roller coaster that was over 100 years old. The amusement park is located in the center of town so everyone has access to it. Christopher and I rode on the giant swings which took you up high enough to get a panoramic view of the city. After that we visited the Christiansborg palace which was built by one of Denmark's greatest leaders Christian the 2nd. ...
So we hopped on the buses again to do what we didn't do yesterday. First stop was St Albans Anglican church and Churchill Park. We didn't go in. But it was right next to Copenhagen's largest fountain and the ramparts of the old citadel.
Then we went to the much photographed Nyhavn canal which used to be a seedy part of town until the warehouses were done up as apartments with ground floor cafes - think olde world Wynyard ...
... in Copenhagen the most because it is a city meant for bikes. There are dedicated bike lanes on every street and each intersection has three traffic lights; one for cars, bikes, and pedestrians. Danish citizens use bikes to commute everywhere and pretty soon, my rental also became my trusty companion as I explored the city atop two wheels. As I visited the city, I noticed that Copenhagen is a city of contrasts. New cutting edge architecture with steel ...
... a good way to get yelled at by the locals. The Danes take their biking and bike lanes very seriously, you do not want to get in their way. I also noticed these fantastic bike lights. There are larger lights for cars, then smaller lights for bikes. Also they flash yellow before they turn green so you know to start pedaling, then everyone is already on their way once the light turns green. Seems like a handy system for keeping traffic moving efficiently. ...
