Scandic Aarhus Vest
Ranked #12 of 22 Hotels in Aarhus
Reviewed 27 May 2013 via mobile

Far on the outskirts of downtown away from the central station. Any perceived savings in the room price are quickly demolished by the location.

Staff was professional and courteous as to be expected in Scandic hotels, rooms were pleasant and clean.

Family room had bunk beds on the wall and a single larger bed on the floor.

I have no complaints about the hotel, but because of the location we satyed only one night and then changed hotels.

The rooms on the 3rd floor are in mint condition. Rooms are clean and spacious. For once it is a pleasure to dine in hotel restaurant. The food was exellent and the service as good.
I will continue to use this hotel when visiting Aarhus!

Dear Spi007

Thank you for your feedback.

Great to hear that the room was satisfactory and not least that it was a good experience to eat in our restaurant. It's great to hear when our guests try the restaurant and finds out that it is worth the visit

We hope to welcome You at Scandic Aarhus Vest another time.

I arrived late but the receptionist / night porter was really pleasant and efficient. I had a bit of difficulty finding the car park as it appears that you are driving into the nearby service station.

The room was reasonably appointed but tired. For the life of me I couldn't work out the combination of switches to make the lamps over the beds come on. I assume they were broken.

The bathroom was a low point. It appeared grubby but this may have been age although there was definitely a hair on the shower wall so maybe not entirely. The marble effect sink had cracked around the plug. I thought that the shower was broken until I realised it was a hot/cold mixer and not a thermostatic tap; it's been years since I used one of these in a hotel!
Breakfast looked ok but I didn't have time really. The pastries and coffee were ok.

Checkout was friendly and efficient.

Given that the hotel is well located for the motorway I would stay again on business but I would be tempted to try somewhere else.

Would hesitate to recommend.

The hotel is located centrally on the ring, However it seems to be a rough neighborhood as they a build a fence around the hotel. The satefy of the hotel is high.
The rooms are OK - Some are renovated - others are average scandinavian style. The bathroom needed renovation, but was clean.
The breakfast buffet was OK - typical Danish and nothing was missing.
All in all a nice hotel that is not worse or better than average.

Room Tip: Book a room on the low floors as the elevators are very slowly - then you can walk up and down to th...

We chose this hotel as we were going to a party nearby. It is a standard chain hotel without much personality, and the bathroom was a bit knackered. Big, bright room with a view over the city and a comfortable bed. Good breakfast selection and friendly staff. We got an excellent deal, so top value

This Scandic is about 10 years overdue for a refurbishment. The bedroom and bathrooms are dated and very scruffy, the bedroom corridors are just as bad.
The bedroom was however warm, and the bed itself was fairly comfortable.
The breakfasts were very good, and the dining/bar area is in far better condition than the rest of the hotel.

Dear EV97
Thank you for your feedback after your stay at Scandic Aarhus Vest.
At the hotel, we have renovated most of our rooms through time. We sadly lack some rooms yet, and you must have lived in one of them. We try hard to get the last room renovated but it is a long process.
I am glad to hear that you find our breakfast very good, it's a very important meal, which can ensure that you get a good day.
Again, I would like to thank for your feedback and we do everything we can to get the last room updated.

Best regards

Scandic Aarhus Vest

Stayed two days- tried to get another room but all full (so they said) stayed on bottom floors rooms in 100's. Smelled like sewage. My husband says they don't have a regular drain systems. When we showered water went all over floor and didn't drain well. Had to stand in water while getting ready. Floors worn and just had a bad stench.
