Our stay coincided with the Alesund food festival which meant we went round the food marquees trying out Norwegian food and not having to buy lunch !.
We had 2 nights here either side of the weekend,our first room was no.403 which was on harbour side of the hotel,it had a full length patio window with lovely views of the area.However the room is on an angle to the hotel and the shower is tiny,all the rooms ending in 03 are like this.Compare photos in other reviews
Our 2nd night was in room 301 which does not have the full length window but still has the lovely harbour views,as the room is at the end of the corridor you get much more space the room being L shaped,a very nice room with a full size shower.
A big disappointment was no tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms,we Brits like a cup of tea when we wake up though hot drinks are available 24/7 in the dining room.
The staff were very helpful nothing being to much trouble.
This converted warehouse is very attractive inside and with a good buffet breakfast, free DIY waffles in the afternoon and free evening cold buffet with hot soup available as well.
Also the hotel has a free internet computer in the lobby and is also wi-fi enabled.There is also a comfortable TV lounge on the ground floor.Although there is not a bar alcoholic drinks are available from reception
Overall I would say this place has to be the best value in Alesund,we paid £246.00 for 2 nights.The clincher has to be the included food.
One final thing,if you intend to visit Norway bring plenty of money with you it is very very expensive ie.wine at £8.00 per glass and beer at roughly £9.00 per pint and room delivered pizza start at £17.00. up to £26.00.
