Hotel Oasia Aarhus, Denmark, is located in one of Aarhus city’s old historic buildings which formerly housed a small hotel called “Eriksen’s Hotel”. Today the hotel offers traditions mixed with modern simplicity which creates what the hotel describes as “elegant and discrete luxury”.
You’ll find Hotel Oasia tucked away on a quiet, cobbled residential street, comfortably within easy walking distance of trains, buses and all the main attractions of the city. The hotel offers a shuttle bus to the airport, but you can walk to the shops and cafes in trendy Jægergårdgade.
In the heart of Aarhus stands architect Arne Jacobsen and Kim Møller’s iconic Aarhus City Hall, a symbol of classic design ethic. And even if you are staying in the town’s most bustling part, all 65 minimal but comfortable rooms in this boutique hotel have a stylish setting with some of the most prominent Nordic designer brands, for example Montana furniture, Lightyears lamps, Bang & Olufsen telephones and not least the opportunity to have some good nights’ sleep on Hästens mattresses.
With a range of weekend packages, the hotel provides ideal opportunities to explore attractions close by. You should not miss Aros, Aarhus’ world-class art museum, featuring Olafur Eliasson’s stunning rooftop installation “Rainbow Panorama”. “The Old Town” is an open air museum of urban history and culture, from the streets of Hans Christian Andersen’s time to the 1970s, you experience traveling in time.
The only meal served at Oasia is breakfast, but it is a pretty good one. The buffet includes organic breads, cereals, preserves and yoghurts, a good choice of cheeses, pastries and fresh food, and some hot options.
For discerning palates, Hotel Oasia has teamed up with local star chef Wassim Hallal and Restaurant Frederikshøj to offer special gourmet packages. The staff is, however, also happy to recommend other of the local area’s many dining spots.
The combination of stylish, quiet rooms in a happening part of the city has proved a winning one. Several years in a row, including 2017, the hotel has been rewarded TripAdvisors Travelers’ Choice awards.
