Waited 10 minutes as second in line for Check-in. Only one staff member servicing the reception, even though a lot of customers were waiting. Very clean and nice decorated hotel. Breakfast is very good- including the quality of the bacon :-) It is hard to find space for parking in the neighborhood, and the hotel does not provide parking space... More

I use this hotel regularly for business travels so I should be getting used to the prices at the bar and restaurant but it always hits me in the face when it's time to settle.

Rooms are small, simple but convenient. Breakfast is really good. Hotel is very dark inside, not a lot of connection with the outside which gives it a feeling of being in a club. Close to downtown. Great price-quality.

Dear ping1965, Thank you very much for your kind review- I am sorry that you found it very dark here - most of our guests enjoy our cozy lobby and breakout area with a feeling of home way from home, couches and pillows. We hope to see you here again. Kind regards Nina Carlslund More

The website states that the hotel has parking and WiFi in all rooms. However parking was not available and the WiFi did not work! Beds are below DK hotel-standard and TV entertainment is very limited.

The Scandic city was perfect for a short one night getaway for shopping and eating out in Aarhus - it's very close to all the shops and dining places.

It doesn't get much better in terms of location for being able to explore the downtown area, where most of the action is. Occasional drunken noise from on the street (weekend nights only) was a bit annoying but a small price to pay. The breakfast was good and the service all round was super friendly.
