In the town center. Walking distance to the best restaurats in town and the sea. Professional personell and confortable business rooms. Cute warm floir in the bathroom. Breakfast buffet has unbelievable selection and a show a la minute cooking. The sauna room is not equipped with lockable cupboard and I could not find the scandinavian intimate atmosphere that is usually...

The Scandic Parken is well situated just a couple of hundred metres from the waterfront and just off the 'high street'. The airport bus stops not far away, too. The room was comfortable with fantastic floor to ceiling windows with a great view over the town. No meals were available in the evenings but there are lots of good restaurants...

Ask for a room at a higher level. Wonderful views of the town of Alesund from all the rooms facing that direction. Great service, best breakfast in these parts of Norway and nicely refurbished rooms. Minbar in rooms and very good beds.

I stayed in this hotel on business for one night. I found the staff to be super helpful and spoke excellent English. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The stand out is the breakfast! I stay in hotels all over Europe and this one wins so far by a country mile for choice and quality for the price. I'd stay...

Centrally located in Aalesund with standard clean and rather spacious rooms in scandinavian standards. Just stay away from the rooms nearby the elevators. Some rooms offer a very nice view over the city. Those unfortunate can walk the stairs to Aksla form Byparken to get an even better view over the city and the sunset. Outstanding breakfast.

Excellent hotel location, exceptionally quiet, attentive service, excellent breakfast buffet on the weekends. Weekday breakfast buffets are very good just not as expansive. The location backs up to a beautiful park (Aska) where you can hike, picnic, sightsee & climb. NO regrets of any kind other than there is no lunch served & room service only in the evening. Restaurant...

Great Hotel for the price . Won't find other one in combination with the price and what you get for your money . Best breakfasts in town throughout the year no matter the season. Comfortable rooms . Great location.

I keep coming back to Parken. Good location, fine staff, in-house parking (although expensive, as commented) and facilities otherwise. But as an early riser I do miss the in-room tea/coffee making facilities that were there in the Rica days.

I used this hotel as recommended to me and was given corporate rate which was reasonable for Norway hotel prices. Overall a good stay, and it's easy to see why this hotel is regularly awarded the best breakfast in Aalesund. It's extensive to say the least. The staff are friendly and went out of their way to help me print...
