We probably should have taken the clue, when it took us 5 calls in an hour to get through to reception on a sunday evening, one of them was actually picked up, and "wait a moment" was quicly said- 5 minutes later, we were still waiting. As others have mentioned, there are some renovation works going on, and these are... More

This hotel was being renovated during my visit, so is likely to be much improved for future visitors. In general, the hotel is very clean an the restaurant offers excellent food if you prefer to dine in. My room was showing its age a little, but was clean and comfortable, with TV and internet access as standard. Esbjerg is a... More

One of the better hotels in Esbjerg. OK breakfast. Walking distance to main shopping road and to the Maersk- and other offshore based offices. The hotel has an agreement with a close by gym with modern equipment.

A hotel of the 'travel-lodge' style. My room was good as was the breakfast. An extensive buffet was attractive - problems with the coffee machine were addressed quickly and an alternative service with vacuum flasks quickly available. Its not very close to the town centre but easily drivable. The staff were friendly and all spoke good English.

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.
