Scandic Asker3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
A Scandic experience below average. Hotel is quite dull, rooms outdates. Heater was an old fashioned electric radiator, but with some central malfunctional control. After talking to the reception the advice was 'to pull out the plug (not power though) to control it manually. In the bathroom some interior parts - hook, shelfs - where missing, almost like it was stolen by a previous guest... The restaurant served an underaverage burger in a really dark setting.
I am very satisfied with my stay in Scandic Asker, service is excellent on all level. Breakfast is my favorite, varied and delightful, also with "homemade" things, egg, bacon, bakery... Helpful and kind hostess staff.
Nice hotel a short walk from Asker Station (once you know the way!) Easy train ride to/from central Oslo or the airport. Very friendly staff. Nice meal in the restaurant efficiently served. Fantastic breakfast buffet. Comfortable and quiet room.
I should think most reviews by travellers from the UK for Norwegian hotels will fall into the business category. Unless you have won the Euromillions lottery, a weeks jaunt up to Norway staying in hotels and eating in restaurants is eye-wateringly expensive. Scandic Asker is typical of most of the business-style hotels in the Nordic area. Clean comfortable, functional and not cheap! how about £47 for a burger and two beers! Really easy to find from the motorway, at this time of year (November) important as it goes dark very early, it has plentiful parking in an underground car-park. Make sure you ask the reception staff how to pay for your parking (not controlled by the hotel) as parking fines in this part of the world are steep- speaking from experience from a previous trip to Norway at a different hotel. The bedrooms a re well-appointed and comfortable and quiet with excellent black-out blinds which are necessary in the summer months. Breakfast was the usual buffet style with a wide choice of foods to suit every taste.
Stayed at the hotel for a course. The room was a bit noisy, but OK. Breakfast would have been better with real eggs in the scrambled eggs. The staff was very nice and helpfull! Big plus! Could definitely stay here for business again.
I had a lovely time at Scandic Asker. Nice breakfast and nice atmosphere. The was was helpful and smiley. Good food and good service. Can be recommended. Close walking distance to Asker centrum and facilities.
Scandic Asker - excellent hotel for both business meetings and family events: Excellent roms, very good and delicious food, good meeting facilities, very good cleanliness, easy to reach by both train and car.
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.
