Omena Hotel Copenhagen Jul 23, 2013
Bit strange, being a self check in hotel, but codes were emailed and sent by text umpteen times before we arrived. Check in isn't until 4pm, and there was a queue along the street by then waiting for codes to become active. Was fairly quick getting in then though, and we were straight into the room. You have to put your code into every door you pass through, so it soon becomes ingrained in your memory.
Set up as a double room, but sofa split into two single beds, and it was a big enough room for the four of us. At about £100 a night it was very reasonable for Copenhagen. Probably located in the worst part of the city centre, though no part of Copenhagen is really that bad, and it has a couple of strip clubs along the road towards Vesterbrogade. Later at night, at the corner towards the station a few hookers hang about plying their trade. If you were just in and out the hotel, and not hanging about outside you would barely notice. Did provide a bit of entertainment in an otherwise quiet street.
Having been to Copenhagen before I picked it primarily for the location, as it is just a stones throw from Tivoli and Copenhagen Central Station. If you exit the station where the left luggage is, it's a simple right, left, right and literally about 2 minutes walk. Going that route as well you pass a small 7-11 convenience store that do groceries,snacks, bread, drinks and beer.
Inside the room the beds were basic, but fine, and slept well each night. Was a plonker for the extra beds when we couldn't find sheets and extra towels. Although no reception, there is a 24 hour free helpline phone in the lobby, and I used that. Must be a fairly common question for them and they explained what I thought were cushions for the sofa were actually very well packed additional bedding and towels.
Rooms had a big screen TV, kettle, a microwave and a fridge, and the rooms were cleaned and beds turned down each day.Said it had free wifi, and you could find the network, but none of us could get on anywhere trying to use it. Easy enough to hook into one of the other hotel's wifi network though :).
One strange feature, I thought, was a fairly steep ramp in the corridor. Was explained by Christian when we met up with him, in that architects in Copenhagen did their own thing, and walk along any street and you'll notice the windows in houses next to each other aren't at the same level. Same went for the hotel which extend across more than one building and this was how they joined them.
Only real complaint was the noise one night, that kept my wife awake, but not the rest of us, and it wasn't from the clubs or pub, but rather sounded like a party going on in one of the other rooms. Maybe one of the downsides of no reception staff to keep a lid on things.
Overall an OK hotel to stay in, and good location for getting around from.
