Recent guest reviews
Visit the hotel in business trip. Nice hotel everything was in order, polite service and close to public transportation. Nice breakfast too. If I was about to visit Asker again, I would book a room there again.
The Hotel has everything you need and also some nice recreational areas or good corners when you can have a business conversation. The rooms are well equipped also with an iron board. Price is a bit on the high side but still in an medium level for Norway.
Gave front desk two pair pants to be DRY Cleaned. Clearly specified dry cleaning and she said it would take an extra day, because they do the dry cleaning on Thursdays. Fine...I'm here for 4 weeks, no rush. Came by the desk next day, pants were back early. Odd. But on hangers, pressed. I put them in cupboard to keep clean for last few days of my trip. Just opened. They washed (!!) the navy cotton pants [which were brand new] WITH the light beige cotton pants...which are now blue grey and covered with dye spots. Completely ruined. The brand new Brooks Brothers navy blue pants are now faded to a lighter blue, so they no longer match the sweater sold with them. The waist and belt area of the pants is poorly pressed. Disaster. I have been to Scandic in Asker and Drammen several times this year always for 2-4 weeks of business. First time I asked for a silk blouse to be cleaned. They "forgot" to send it. Next I sent linen pants and skirts for dry cleaning. First time they came back pressed but still dirty. Second time they again came back laundered...not dry cleaned. Then this. They pass the cost on to me in any case...so surely they can use a competent service!!!! I thought the staff here was nice and reasonably competent but...this is completely unacceptable. If they don't have the real service, tell me and I'll take the stuff elsewhere.
Was delayed because of missing luggage. Staff cooperated both when it came to holding the room until we arrived belatedly. Contacted us the very moment a lost piece of luggage arrived, so that the inconvenience caused by not having clothes, etc. could be corrected. Breakfast and following buffet lunch were wonderful ... and plentiful !
Good deal of staff. The rooms are clean with standard decor. The internet was not easy to connect. The signage to the rooms was poor. Even the signage in the parking garage was poor. Otherwise, the hotel is a good option for accommodation.
A modern very clean hotel with friendly staff, very helpful. Wonderful breakfast buffet & also evening meal. Large comfortable twin room & great en suite. Very close to Asker town centre, just a 10 minute walk for this 84 year old lady, trains, buses & taxis all together at station also many shops & seating areas in this attractive small town. I like Asker & I will hopefully return next year.
Not many hotels to chose from in Asker, but the Scandic is pleasant. Rooms are OK - very Scandinavian when compared to others I've stayed in. Breakfast was good but can't comment on other meals. Location is good from the railway station - it's a 5 minute walk away which brings me onto a top tip If you're at the main Oslo Airport and wondering how can I get to Asker and the hotel, get the Airport train as this will take you direct to Asker. Cost is approx €20 and takes roughly 30 mins. Taking a taxi is 45 mins and will cost around €230. I made the mistake...
We spend 4 nights here and almost everything was excellent. We have a nice room. Receptionist were smiles every time. The hotel is situated close to the city center and trainstation so we went to visit Oslo by a train.
Perfect View. Perfect Location. Perfect Service. Perfect Food. Perfect Staff. What more can you ask for a month long business trip. Felt like home away from home. All the amenities you need will be provided.
Good location with parking car at the hotel building. Excelente breakfast. They also have free coffee and tea all day long at reception. The room was spacious and clean, with empty mini bar. Staff very atencious. No ammenities.
