We had a slack start to the day…..What to do…..it's a ************* when you are on holidays. We went to visit another castle, this one is within walking distance from the hotel. This time it was Rosenberg Castle. They have turned the grounds into a park, it was nice just to walk through the gardens. The artefacts were plentiful, as …
Another amazing busy day …our tour today was castles…yep real ones. We saw the city sites as we went along, our first castle is Kronborg castle, it was the setting for Shakespeare's Hamlet. We were let lose for an hour and a half to explore this beautiful building. Within the castle grounds was their church, it was highly decorated as …
We changed our plans for the day. We went for a canal tour …..that was nice and relaxing. Some of the bridges we went under were quite low, we were told to sit down or we could lose our head. The lady that did the commentary was quiet good switching between 3 languages. There were some nice yachts on the water, we also saw the royal yacht. It …
We caught a train into the airport, again we were helped by a local girl, we arrived in plenty of time. We are both not a fan of flying, for Geoff I think its because he is confined to a small place. For me it's that and I’m yet to find a mode of transport that likes me, I get sick in everything. But I must say I like the Swiss style … …
The quayside of the Langeline cruise terminal in Copenhagen was a hive of activity. Officials and staff were frantically trying to register all the passengers whilst stevedores supervised the loading of the rest of the provisions.
I could imagine that this was similar to scenes at Southampton prior to boarding a certain ship in 1912!!!! I …

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Osterport Copenhagen
I read reviews before it was booked but not 1 person mentioned that there was NO REFRIGERATOR or ROOM SAFE. There was no Electric Jug, No Coffee or Tea supplied, No Soap (A soap Dispenser with liquid soap at the hand basin and in the Shower was supplied), No Shampoo - There was absolutely Nothing! All the normal things you expect were not here!
The Internet is relayed through Range extenders and because we were situated at the end of this Hotel the Internet kept cutting in and out.
There were 2 x Single Beds in our room, (I am not sure if all rooms are the same), but, even though they were layed out side by side as a double they kept parting during the night, so obviously Romance was out the window!, and without air-conditioning it was too warm in the room to both sleep in 1 x single bed. I must say that the Beds were extremely comfortable however with mattress toppers on the mattresses..
The situation is Awesome, Opposite the Osterport Railway Station (although we decided it was much more pleasant to walk the 2.4 kilometers to the Copenhagen CBD), The Supermarket is situated across the road right next to the Railway Station.The Room was Old looking, but spacious, and although facing the railway line we were not bothered by this. Staff were helpful, Room was clean although walking down the long long long long long passage the carpets did look quite ordinary. It is also situated very close to the little Mermaid and the Palace.
Now the Question is, Would we stay here again? The answer would most likely be YES, Only because the Location was so good, and we are now over the initial shock of the negative things here.
I hope this review is helpful and once again I am sorry to give it such a poor rating, but for me this was an honest review from myself and my wife's behalf, Others obviously have different views and needs and will find it quite adequate for their needs.
