Scandic the Mayor


Country: Denmark

City: Aarhus

Address: Banegårdspladsen 14, 8000 Aarhus, Denmark

Phone number: +4587320100


Friendly staff and good service, rooms appear bit neglected, but still good. Comfy bed, but as every Scandic, pillows are bad. Breakfast is on the OK side, unhealthy and and for someone looking what they eat, no nutritional or the product information available, so impossible to google either.

Really mixed feelings here. The rooms are among the smallest hotel rooms I have ever stayed in. As a 183cm adult, you have to sit sideways on the toilet, because there is no room for your knees. If you are a broad shouldered male, you have to enter the shower sideways. The bed and linen leaves a lot to be desired. On the other hand, the breakfast buffet is wonderful and really good quality. Weird mix. Also, they charge 30 DKK for a small toothpaste - not that friendly for a customer just wanting to brush his or her teeth. I'll come back, for the food.

Very mixed feelings. Super location, good breakfast, friendly stuff. But room is very very small, and the bed is not comfortable. Even I am a frequent user of Scandic in Nordic cities and know usually they are not fancy, this is still a surprise. I barely have place to place my suitcases, and there is no closet for hanging cloth. There are 4 hooks on the wall and that is it. In the bathroom it is hard to walk in and out the showering area (even for a 163cm girl like me), no place to hang used towels or place creams and makeups while using the mirror. Showering water flow is small. No way to check one’s look because there is no body mirrors or anything alike. The room also has bad sound isolations, I wake up at 4am one day by coughing from the neighboring room and another day at 5am by noise from the street. The curtain is also not really light tight, for light sensitive person it is problematic. The plumbs in the room are constantly making some noises.  Staffs are friendly but also a bit distant, they put no effort than the minimum, to help you for problems you encounter. For example on the day that I got wake up by the noisy neighbor, I went to the reception, ask if I can change a room, the staff simply says we can do nothing about it, but you can pay to upgrade the room. (I suppose a single person room does not imply one has to bear noises?) Overall it is ok if one looks for a quick and convenient stay, but it is not a great place if you want to take some rest, and surely I don’t see what makes it a four star hotel.

We stayed here for four nights: two adults, one child. The location couldn't be better; everything you need in Aarhus is close by. The staff was very kind and helpful throughout. The rooms were clean, not cleaned unnecessarily, but they came and cleaned it when we asked. Check-in takes approx. five minutes on departure, the payment was made in a few minutes. Our room overlooked a wonderful park. Breakfast was varied and nutritious beyond all our expectations. The negatives: The TV of those next to us or above us was very audible in our room in the evening and the shower and toilet there is barely room for one.
