Stayed here one night. The room was in desperate need of renovation. Old seventies hotel clock radio was still hanging on the wall,- the carpets in the room, corridor and stairways was looking scruffy, and the bathroom was small and outdated. The breakfast was nice and the lobby area and restaurant / bar looked nice in a minimalistic style. Hotel... More

Fine as far as it goes. Found the room a bit dated and bed not the best though the TV had a nice feature to connect your own device. Wifi didn't work easily, didn't bother, ask for code at reception apparently. Breakfast was fine, better than Britannia I'd say Staff very friendly

This hotel is great for a short stay. Very modern, good quality and very clean. Staff are very helpful. The location is ideal with the local shops and restaurants a few minutes walk. The hotel has its own very good Restuarant. I only stayed to attend a local training course but would definitely stay there again.

Have stayed at this hotel on and off since 2010. It has some very good points - the staff are excellent, helpful, polite and friendly; the location is ideal for business or access to all the town centre facilities; the restaurant has a new menu and the standard, presentation and variety of meals are pretty good. My recent visit however... More

The hotel was vastly overpriced, probably due to the number of oil workers and the lack of hotels in the area. The decor on the lower floors looks seriously dated. I had to change rooms due staying an extra night and stayed in an even more expensive but refurbished room. The staff however were friendly and very helpful and the... More

The addiction of collecting Scandic Friends points means I will stay in a Scandic hotel whenever I can, and I've rarely been disappointed. This one is more modern than the rest and considering its not in a major city, well appointed and seemed very busy. It's location was good for downtown Esbjerg with the main shopping area being just a... More

We stayed in this hotel whilst the Esbjerg Rock Festival was on. We had a standard room and I was not impressed at all. Everything looked worn and the hotel could do with a refit. The curtains were 10 cm too short and let too much light in the room in the mornings. The beds were ok, but could have... More

Starting with the positives: good location and comfortable bed. The negatives though, where to begin? The service in the bar and restaurant was more akin to a busy cafe, i.e. Slow and inefficient. I lost count of the number of mistakes the staff made as I ate my very average steak. At one point, there were four staff behind the... More

If you are visiting Esbjerg, this hotel is vey well positioned. It’s a classic Scandic Hotel, so it’s quite modern and clean and if you get a room with a view (overlooking the harbor), you will love the sunset. But don’t expect a small boutique hotel with a lot of coziness. This is a classic convenient business hotel.
