Scandic Plaza Aarhus is old enough but very expensive hotel. Sauna was unworked, our room was not very big. Breakfast was ok. Stuff wasn't very friendly. The hotel is situated near railway staion and it's comfortable for us. In our room we hadn't conditioner.

This is a nice, reasonably priced hotel. It is clean and has a great breakfast. I spent two weeks here, as I was in Aarhus on business. I was well treated and very comfortable. It is located a few steps from the train station and within walking distance of the best shopping and restaurants in Aarhus. It couldn't be better!!

Had a rush job in Aarhus and could chose between this hotel and the Radisson. I chose this hotel because it feels more like home to me. Got room 466 which is all the way at the end of the new wing near the park. Nice and quiet room, spotlessly clean. Windows open for ventilation which is nice because Danes... More

The hotel is right across from the train station which gives it a great central location. My room saw out towards the Art museum which was a nice treat. The hotel has relatively standard Scandinavian rooms that are perfectly comfortable, but in the Spartan side. My room could have used some renovation. A real plus was the good (and easy)... More

Average hotel, Good breakfast selection, with organic choices. Friendly and helpful staff. Rooms average, with nothing extra, but nice and clean. Neither my room, nor my bathroom was small, like others have mentioned, so perheps there are different sizes. No tub, but a shower. If you´re a light sleeper earplugs may be a good idea. The clock tower just next... More

The hotel is centrally located, clean and the staff are friendly. However, the rooms are absolutely tiny. - Lying in my bed, I could touch both the wall at my head and at my feet at the same time. Then I could turn sideways, and still touch both walls at the same time! The bathroom is similarly tiny - you... More

My experience at Scandic Hotel Aarhus was one of disappointment coupled with shock. The reason for booking this hotel was a recommendation from a local friend whose judgment was surely that of a bias. The building is located right around the corner of a busy Aarhus junction diagonally opposite to the Aarhus Centrail Train Station. The reception area is extremely... More
