“what a hotel should be”
Reviewed 28 July 2011

Is not the first time we stayed there and I can not find one single reason to complain about.
Is exactly what you need from a hotel :good location,very clean and quiet,very good breakfast and so on.For sure,it will remain my first option each time I`ll travel there.

The hotel is located across the water from the main city center which is only a 6 min walk to the center. The hotel rooms are OK, nothing special but they are clean and tidy, some rooms were renovated and I have stayed in both old and new and would recommend the newer modern rooms. The hotel restaurant offers decent basic food. The breakfast buffet is very good although it always seemed to be very busy when I was there. The staff are very nice and always happy to ask questions. The Scandic shop is a favorite which is always open with snacks, cold drinks and coffee.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the renovated rooms

The hotel is well located and with views to the sea and mountains. The staff was extremely helpful; it is very seldom we experience this level of service and friendliness – and always with a smile. Thank you so much for all your help!
We definitely recommend this hotel.

Stayed at the Scandic Alesund April 2, 2011. Very nice hotel, situated in a quiet location, city center. The room gave a view of the sea port. Delicious breakfast (buffet), a lot of different dishes. The hotel has free Wi Fi.
The bad news is that the TV was paid, had to pay extra 130 NOK.

Our first experience with the Scandic chain - I wish basic US chain hotels were like this, with rooms in a modern Scandinavian style (think more IKEA than high-end, but a welcome relief from the beige blandness of typical US hotel rooms). All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful (the airport bus is a bit tricky since it's timed for flights rather than a constant, regular schedule - ask them for help, cause you really don't want to pay for a taxi here). Breakfast, as usual in Scandinavia, was very good, although fairly crowded. We had one of the upper floor rooms with the sloped ceiling and dormer windows that looked out over the bay - very nice.

The hotel is quite centrally located, and Ålesund is a very compact, walkable little city. We had a couple days of just beautiful weather, perfect for exploring this gorgeous but sleepy town.

Would happily return!

Excellent location. Clean rooms, just perfect size for a business trip. Good gym!
Very good breakfast and acceptable quality on the dinners and lunches!
Very friendly personel.
Probably one of the best Scandic hotels, totaly comparable with a Radisson hotel, but much cheaper!

Spent one night at Scandic Alesund in the fall, when the town was practically deserted. The Scandic was fine for one night. Nothing fancy--decent size room and bathroom, reasonably comfortable bed, free wireless, etc. The location is good, but there were plenty of other options around the harbor, and if I ever went back to Alesund (unlikely), I'd probably pick another place. Our room did not have a sea view, but a clever bay window and mirror arrangement allowed us to glimpse the harbor anyway. We found the breakfast buffet to be on the lower end of the quality scale, with tired-looking fruit and undrinkably bitter coffee, but the restaurant offered beautiful views of the water. Our big complaint was that the kids' playroom Scandic advertises was closed for the season--a policy that struck us as bizarre. Why would you close the playroom during the cold/rainy season?

In summary: I wouldn't rush to stay there again, but I wouldn't avoid it, either. It's fine as mid-range hotels go.
