Hotel Scandic Aarhus City

Hotel Scandic Aarhus City is located in the centre of Aarhus and combines 150 years of city history into a modern architectural whole. Behind a beautifully ornamented facade from the 19th century you will find this 18,000 m2 hotel which includes restaurant and conference facilities and 228 rooms allocated on six floors. The hotel is located a stone’s throw from the central railway station and right next to the pedestrian street.
 
Hotel Scandic Aarhus City combines the city centre’s historic atmosphere with modern hotel facilities. For instance, the dark brown facade reflects the neighbouring buildings’ reddish brown hue. In addition, the bright bands give the facade rhythm and reflect the neighbouring buildings’ white ornaments, enhancing the buildings’ horizontal divisions and window openings.
 
In order to bring a new, modern dimension to the city centre, the hotel is designed as a sharp-edged corner building with vast glass facades which are divided by varied facade sections. The facade sections are made of aluminium and create a clear contrast to the area’s historic brick architecture, for instance the former warehouse building along Hans Hartvig Seedorffs Stræde.
 
The contrast between new and old is particularly being expressed along Østergade where the hotel has preserved the beautifully ornamented facade from the 19th century. The facade originally framed the city’s popular local hall and is one of the city’s best preserved 19th century facades.
 
Last, but not least, the hotel attaches great importance to the environment. For instance, there are solar panels on the roof that supply the hotel with 90 per cent of the electricity used in the hotel rooms. The hotel is also designed as one of Denmark's most accessible hotels, with 22 rooms for disabled people and a fully-accessible conference area.
