Its a budget hotel with no frills in service. Have a one small all day dinning reataurant with only one person handling the kitchen and service both. But you never have to wait for the service. Rooms are nicely made by housekeeping services. Nice play to stay at a nice play which is a must visit if you are in... More

Sprucing up would be an understatement for the renovations required for the Scandic Olympic. The hotel is largely used by the offshore wind industry, heavily present in the port town of Esbjerg, and the rooms are very much akin to mine site accommodation (dongers), being basic and bare. As mentioned in other reviews, you will find such features as: -... More

A dated hotel, but as the title states not too shabby. I arrived late (just after midnight), everything ready, friendly staff. The room was in need of some modernisation, and the mattress were a little on the thin side. However it was nice and clean, great service, very nice breakfast.

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on the wall,- the carpets in the room, corridor and stairways was looking scruffy, and the bathroom was small and outdated.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.

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.
