Very nice accommodation in the center of Alesund.. The hotel has a strong character with its old wooden beams and it's nice to stay in a heritage building...

Nice staff, very helpful, nice breakfast and also a very good free meal for a good price..
We loved the possibility to borrow fishing pole ...

This is a pleasant centrally located hotel with plenty of character, overlooking the water. The staff are very helpful. Like all clarion collection hotels the B&B rate included a light buffet supper which was very useful. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We asked for a room on the water side of the hotel and the receptionist managed to find one which was good since there is plenty of nautical activity to watch.

Dear Joy070

Thanks a lot for taking time writhing about us. It is a pleasant to read that we took care of you, the food was good and that you could look at our beautiful water view. I myself get never tiered of watching boats sailing through “Brosundet”.

Wish you a beautiful summer in England and you are always welcome back to Clarion Collection Hotels in Norways, Sweeden, Danmark and the city Riga.

Best Regards, Camilla Espeseth, Clarion Collection Hotel Bryggen in Ålesund

Friendly hotel in old harbour building. Perfect location in the middle of the city. Excellent service. Evening meal. Comfortable room, but the view from the room could have been better. Value for money

Stayed for 2 nights, the staff was very accommodating from the get go, allowing us to check in early, and also switching our room to a location furthest from the ongoing repairs in the street outside. When we couldn't find one of our keys during check out, the concierge made no fuzz over it and comforted us by saying that it is all a part of running a hotel.

The room was modern and practical, we had a slight problem with the faucet, being only able to get cold water, but this was going to be fixed when we told the concierge upon leaving, as well as a broken power chord we discovered while looking for the missing key. There is no minibar, but you can get wine (at an affordable price - 70 NOK pr glass) and other comforts at the reception desk.

The hotel uniquely offers both free waffels between 3 pm and 6 pm, and free supper between 6 pm and 9 pm. This is the first time we've experienced this and the hotel's book which we found in our room (and were welcome to take home if we wanted) explain that the hotel has a policy of redusing waste to a minimum, hence the supper, making the most out of leftovers. We tried it one night, and it was actually not bad, way better than the buffet we payed 445 NOK (pr. person!) for on hurtigruta the previous night!

It's close to town with a great view of city center across the cove. The hotel also has a small gym, free sunbeds and sauna.

The room was neat and clean (thank you chamber maid Venke), as are the common areas and the little garden facing the cove, complete with floating dock. You could also borrow a fishing pole if you wanted and try your luck out of the window, when getting a room facing the waterfront or out back.

Room Tip: If you get a waterfront room on the lower floors, you've hit the jackpot

We stayed here two nights. We had a beautiful room facing the marina/harbor. It was quite large with a queen bed, desk, sofa and bathroom with shower. The beds in Norway are very comfortable! They have a box spring with a small foam mattress and separate comforters. The shower had a lot of pressure and lots of hot water, very nice; you just have to get the hang of the shower enclosure and the shower head or you'll have water all over the floor. Also, as it was my first time in Europe, I had to get used to putting the room key in the place on the wall near the door to make the electricity work in the room. The location of the hotel is wonderful; you can walk everywhere downtown. There is a gym and sauna though we did not use them. There is an excellent restaurant with breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner included in your stay and the food is good! The typical Norwegian hotel breakfast has a cold buffet of cold cuts, pate, types of pickled fish, salmon, salads in addition to hot foods like little hot dog sausages, porridge, eggs, etc. Afternoon tea here is waffles you make yourself with sour cream, crushed fruit and brown cheese as optional add-ins.
The dinner buffet we had one night had excellent meatballs. Everyone here was very nice to us and the entire place was extremely clean. I'm really unsure as to the value as our room was paid for by a third party.

Room Tip: We stayed on the lower floor, one floor down from the lobby in a room looking out on the marina. I would definitely ask for a room here again.

Thank you very much for taking time to writhe all these details’ about our hotel on Tripadvisor. It is a pleasure to read that you have enjoyed yourself and like our concept.
