Scandic Aarhus Vest
Ranked #12 of 22 Hotels in Aarhus
Reviewed October 18, 2011

Stayed here for several nights on a business trip. The hotel is fairly large and located on the western outskirts of the city, one benefit is free parking. It’s kind of like an upmarket Travelodge, practical, provides the essentials but not upmarket.

The rooms are OK, the furniture is fairly modern (looks like IKEA) but some parts look a little tired e.g. bathroom, skirting, door etc. Don’t like the laminate flooring. My shower ran all over the bathroom floor – judging by the state of the bathroom door it wasn’t the first time. You’ll also find a small minibar, safe and TV. I noticed some suite type rooms which would have been nicer than my basic room.

There’s a small seating area, a couple of PCs and a small shop in reception, plus bar and large dining area that doubles as a breakfast room. Note: restaurant/bar not open Sunday evenings, though there were a couple of sandwiches in the shop fridge.
Free wifi throughout the hotel but could only get it to work in reception, a small gym (couple of running machines and a bike) in the basement.

Nothing of any interest apart from a petrol station near the hotel. Various places to eat in town but parking was a struggle, we ventured down to the harbour on one occasion where there was a good choice of places to eat – couldn’t really see anything of the harbour as it was dark and raining.

Final few things, Aarhus airport is quite a long way out of the city and taxis can be few on the ground outside the peak morning and evening times, there did look to be a bus but I’m not sure if it goes anywhere near the hotel. Check the restaurant/shop takes all credit cards as some only take Danish cards.

In summary, I would use the hotel again as it ticked enough boxes and I didn't have any problems, but if given a choice would pay a little extra for something nicer.

Our tour party was treated well for evening dinner. Our room was comfortable, airy and clean. Bathroom toilet and shower were also clean. No plug in the handbasin. The view from our room was not brilliant. Breakfast was ok - but Brits. who like their bacon home or away would be disappointed by it's absence! One night stay only . . . so cannot comment further.

We were in Denmark for a concert, so the location of our hotel didn´t really matter so much, but if you want to be in the town, then don´t stay here. Found all the staff very helpful indeed. Our package that we had included breakfast and because we were leaving at silly o clock in the morning for the concert, the bar staff said they would get the kitchen to make us something to take with us, which they had ready for us in the morning. Food is ok in the restaurant too. Don´t particularly like sleeping in single beds when I go away with my husband though!!

The rating should be between 2 and 3. The hotel is ok, but I know several people who have had break in their cars, or having damage done to the cars while in the parking lot. The staff is nice though, and the rooms are what you would expect from a Scandic hotel.

Scandic Aarhus, is not centrally located but get full points for all other facilities it provides. It has a very calm and serene environment away from the humdrum of the city. It has greenry around and has a lot of other activities to fully involve yourself. For kids they have a separate play area, they have Gym, table tennis, dash board, pool table etc..

You can enjoy fully with your family in this hotel. They have free bicycles which you can enjoy. Staff is very helpful and soft-spoken.

The main attraction of this hotel is the ambience and the environment of restaurant. It is modern with a lot of greenry around to gaze at. You get free discount coupons if you are a member of the hotel which you can enjoy at the hotel. Rooms are spacious and well maintained.

I must say if you want to enjoy the nature and calmness go to this hotel.

Enjoy YOUR STAY AT SCANDIC AARHUS!!!!!

I paid 1290 dkk per night for this sub-standard, budget-quality hotel (... equivelant of £145 GBP ... or 173 EURO ... or $225 USD). The room smelled like a toilet (... really ... it literally smelled "like a public toilet"). I gave up waiting to be served in the "restaurant". I checked-out early and put it down as the bad hotel experience of 2008.
