“Does everything you need”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

About 500m from the heart of the city, this one does pretty much everything you need. Refurbished from a hotel originally opened about 15 years ago, with very relaxing rooms and a good breakfast. It was a weekend when I stayed, so the restaurant service is in the bar area. The upside was that the stay wasn't too expensive (even by Danish standards!)

I stayed here for a weekend break during a work trip away in Denmark while working with Grundfos. The room was cosy with fantastic views of this historic seaside township. The cleanliness of rooms and professional manner of the staff was a bench mark many hotels I've stayed in will simply never achieve. The bar environment was relaxing with fair drink prices. The hotel is centrally located and within minutes walk to many popular restaurants, tourist must see's and cafe / bars. I dont think I look elsewhere for accommodation in Arhus.

Room Tip: Take a higher floor to experience views of the town and historic buildings.

Our family stayed here for a few nights while visiting our daughter who lives nearby. The hotel is quite pretty on the outside with nice lighting and a nice location near the city center.

The room size was quite comfortable and the bedding was standard upscale European duvet with lots of down inside.

The only negative was the high step into the tub and shower. It could be quite difficult if you have any physical limitations. Once there, lots of good hot water and a nice shower.

While we were here on family travel, the Internet connection was good and it looked like a nice place for business as well.

Room Tip: Upper floor rooms all have nice views.

As close to perfect as possible! Reasonable price for this kind of hotel. Very close to city centre (walkable) and next to Aros and other cultural attractions. The hotel is a striking building itself, with interesting internal walkways and views (possibly not for young children). Reception was prompt and courteous, allowing us into our room early. The room was modern, clean and with all standard faciltiies. A very comfortable bed made for a great night's sleep. We skipped breakfast due to cost but had a room service evening meal, which was very good and promptly delivered. Check-out was smooth, very little wait. We had an all-round delightful stay and would certainly come here again.

Room Tip: Lower floor rooms for children.

I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed our facilities and ammeneties. As far as pricing, we certainly appreciate your feedback. I must, however, stress that it is our conviction that the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel is very competetively priced in its segment.

I stayed at Radisson Blu in Aarhus a couple of times during August - October this year when doing business in Aarhus. It is a nice hotel, breakfast is plenty and good quality. The business suits were renovated recently so they are really new and modern. It was surprising that you have to pay for the gym.
Staff is okay, not extremely nice. Room service is also fine. So my overall impression is good. However, there are nicer Radissons in other cities across Europe.

Room Tip: Business suits are remodelled and new.

Thank you for your review of our hotel and thank you for sharing your stay with the users of this site.

I am very happy to hear that you had a pleasant stay with us. Moreover, I am pleased that you enjoyed our facilities and that you approved of our recently refurbished rooms. I am, however, less than happy to hear that you did not perceive our service level as being in the elite of Radisson Blu Hotels. Knowing full well that the elite of Radisson Blu is a very high mark to set for any hotel, I promise you that we strive for excellence in everything we do. I hope you will give us the opportunity to prove this to you, should your travels ever lead you to Aarhus again.

Very nice hotel, fine rooms, good room service and friendly staff. The rooms are average size, clean and the hotel it self, is in walking distance to the mainstreet with shops, bars i.e.

It is a bit far from the airport though, so if you are going, prepare for a longer ride (40 km).

Overall 4 out of 5 !

Thank you very much for choosing to stay at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel during your recent trip to Aarhus. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and appreciated both our facilities and the service provided by our staff – a hallmark of Radisson Blu.
Sadly, Aarhus Airport is a bit of a drive from the city centre. However, Aarhus Airport has a dedicated airport shuttle bus connecting to every single flight arriving to and departing from Aarhus Airport. If you need further information on airport transit, please do not hesitate to contact our front desk.
I would like to thank you for sharing your experience with the users of TripAdvisor and hope to welcome you back to our hotel in the near future.
