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.

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 …

Everybody was enjoying the highly emotional speeches and took every opportunity to kiss the groom while the bride was absent, and kiss the bride while the groom was away, (bathroom stops). It’s a nice tradition. By midnight the DJ kicked in and we all began to dance.

I have since learned that "right eyed flounder" is a family of flounders but it reminded me again of my dad who would tell the grandchildren "look at me in my good eye," when there was nothing wrong with his eyes. (Very funny but you had to be there.)
When we ordered the server asked if we have any food allergies, and we assured her that we did not. Had she asked for any aversions, I would have mentioned the raw beef ...
... only to find out that most trains into the city had been cancelled. We started looking further to find that there had been shootings in Copenhagen center. We weren't totally sure of what had happened, but decided to go out for the evening still. We went to a bar and hung out until much too late at night, as seems to be my habit here. Luckily the guys offered for us to stay with them that night, because it turned out the shootings had occurred only ...

Taking some regional trains what I found most remarkable was how biking had been completely integrated into the transit culture. Entire train carriages had been converted to bike carriages. Morning commuters brought their bikes on board and are able to bike from one part of the city or outlying ...
