Urban House Copenhagen by MEININGER is a hotel/hostel hybrid located in the hippest part of Copenhagen, Vesterbro. Vesterbro is an up-and-coming vibrant neighbourhood filled with quirky cafes and restaurants; in the midst of it all is where Urban House was created. We offer both private and dorm rooms, but the real magic happens on the ground floor. Here you'll find a bar and restaurant, a lounge area, a library, a game room, a self-service kitchen, and a bike shop. Our Urban Family is available 24/7 to assist with your every need. Our rooms are professionally cleaned and disinfected before every arrival. Please note: With our initiative "Mindful by nature" your room is only being cleaned upon request during your stay.

Perfect location for a short and busy city break. Rooms very basic but if you’ve got a lot planned it’s the perfect location. We had a private room and bathroom which was fine for us as we used it just as a bed. Real hostel vibe downstairs and nice bar area

This is based on the room only as it was very busy downstairs and with Covid and mixing, we did not feel comfortable being surrounded by people. The room was alot bigger then we thought which was brilliant, the bed was comfortable but the pillows were very flat, we did request extra pillows online but our message was not received and as it was always busy, we did not want to really ask (was a short stay and we used towels and one spare pillow). The floors were very odd, none of them were level, I'm unsure it its the building age or just our room, it was alittle annoying but as it came to a dip in the middle. The finishes were not as great, really it could do with redecorating, there were marks on the curtain, paint missing and chips, the wall paper had a design where it looked as if there were holes on the wall. No outlet by the mirror, stick on bedlamp in the bulk beds and one side of our bed had no button for the light switch, not huge issues really, just needs updating. The room was also very cold, even with windows closed, we tried to put the heating on and nothing came on. The bathroom was big which was great but it did have some pink mould and some black mould forming aswell as some areas that needed a good scrub like the corner of the shower door by the wall, the toilet seat was abit wobbly but the shower was the worst, there was no pressure atall, the temp was far to hot and no matter what we turned it to, it was still hot and there was no fan really to take away the moisture in the air. The bathroom tap was covered in this green so needs replacing. We were abit disappointed that we put a sign up for no cleaners and it was removed, noone entered the room but the next day we did need bins changing, new soap as the soap dispenser had ran out and we had no sign on the door so thought they would check the room..We were out all day and was surpirsed noone had came in, as it was the last full day there was no point saying and as it was the evening aswell when we got in, we knew the cleaners would not be in, there were areas that needed to be cleaned as things had been spilt and left, we cleaned them ourselves, the lockers all had crumbs in and so on.. I understand that we things reopening everyone is busy, they're not massive issues and I would not say dirty, just needs checking. Staff seems nice but we did not talk to them much. At night it was very noisy, I know its outside the hotels control but we were kept up or woken up by drunks every night, alot of people kept making alot of noise outside our room in the hall aswell. This went on past 3am most mornings. Location was good, views were lovely. Overall the stay was not terrible, I would not even say it was bad but it wasn't the best, I do not think we are the type of travellers the hotel is suited to and its more a younger type that do not have children.

Dear Theodosia, thank you very much for sharing your experience on Tripadvisor. We are very sorry to read about some inconveniences you had in our hotel. We indeed have an historical building which consists out of 4 different blocks. As they connected the building a few years ago, it can seem odd as you have to go up and down in the hallways. Cleaning in our hotel is done every 3rd day, so that is the reason that your room was not cleaned during your stay. We are very sorry we did not meet your expectations concerning this point. We would have loved to tell you this at the reception, we advise you to always come down and share issues you may have. In this way we always have a change to fix things and meet your expectations. Your feedback concerning maintenance of the rooms is noted and we will take action on that in your previous room. Thank you again for sharing your story. Despite the inconveniences, we hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you again some day. Kind regards, Urban House by MEININGER

I was there for 2 months, I deposited 500 euros on arrival that they told me that when I left they would return it to me. 50 days have passed and they still haven't returned my deposit. They gave me an email to request it, and they answered that they had delays in the refunds due to covid, after they had a problem with my card to transfer and 2 weeks ago they did not answer my emails anymore. The worst customer experience I ever had. They still don't give me my money back.

Dear diegodK1613ZZ, thank you for sharing your concern on Tripadvisor. We are sorry to read that your deposit was not refunded and we are sorry this affected your stay so much you are given us a 1 star review. As you were a long stay guest in our hotel, you were asked to pay a deposit at check in. This deposit should be refunded at the day of your check out. As we need the same credit card to refund the amount, we could not refund it because your credit card was not working anymore. Eventually we are very happy that we were able to refund you the amount and we are again sorry for the inconvenience suffered. Thank you again for staying with us. We wish you all the best.

We stayed 2 nights and on the 2nd we decided to stay eat at the bar/restaurant. The tall blond waitress who worked on 12th Nov is just cold as ice. No help, not a smile, not a thank you, nothing. Not because she's used to serve students all day means she has to be impolite. I asked her where I could warm up the baby food and she said "food from outside is not allowed"... LOL I should probably order a beer and a burger for my 2 year-old kid...! For a family friendly place I was expecting better. When we ordered burgers she didn't even explained where to pick it up she just left us there with our ticket... anyway... if she is not happy to work in a happy place, she should just leave the job to someone who'll be happy to work. This is really not good for the establishment, because all the other staff we met was friendly.

Dear Carmen, thank you very much for your feedback on your stay with us. First of all, please accept my sincerest apologies for all inconveniences suffered during your stay with us. We usually get great feedback concerning the friendliness of our staff members, so we are surprised by your comment and we of course do not take this lightly. As we really want to take action, we request a little bit more information. Just to be clear, it is true that you stayed with us almost a year ago? If this is the case, we believe that the person you are referring to is not longer working with us. As we have plenty of different types of guests in the hotel, we are used to handling families as well. Again we are sorry that this affected your stay with us. We hope you will give us the chance to better serve you in the near future. Kind regards, Urban House by MEININGER
