“Nice hotel Fantastc service”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

I stayed here when traveling on business. The hotel is clean , warm and bright and situated in the middle of the town and close to the water. All in all a plesent environment. What made it outstanding in my view was the service. Our flight was delayed and it was close to midnight when we arrived so everywhere was closed , after checking everyone in the receptionist very kindly offered to make us sandwiches as the restaurant had been closed for a couple of hours and very nice they were. At this point I realised I had lost my cell phone.As it was 1am I decided to wait till the morning . Which was when the receptionist Catheryn swung into action. She called the airport,the travel agents and finally tracked down the bus company and the driver, who found my phone and sent it to the hotel for which many thanks . Again I would like to commend wonderful customer service.
PS the breakfast is pretty good.

The hotel feels quite reasonable though the price is still high in relation with south europe standards. Nordic feeling is all arround with simple furniture and nordic bed clothing. Everything is very clean but the rooms lack some more equipment and charm. Not easy to feel a at home for people comming from Spain.
Great location in the city centre and convenient parking lot beside.
Good breakfast and quite reasonable meals for dinner at not so reasonable nordic prices.

Room Tip: Las floor have huge windows from the ceiling to ground if you like them, too much light can enter at...

I love the place! The room we stayed at was very spacious. Two big beds with a lot of space to move around. The room was clean same with the stuff provided; sheets, towels, comforter, etc.

An elegant place and good for anybody who happens to be staying there, both for the kids and adults.

There's a way around the building for the parking space and so it was not a problem at all.

Friendly staff and very accommodating.

Their breakfast was superb! Great foods and drinks with a very nice view outside. I was with a family and the kids loved the place as well.

We had a great time there and the price was very reasonable. Worth every penny you paid for. :)

The Scandic Alesund was a suitable hotel for our families needs.
- Our youngest child enjoyed the children's play area.
- We all enjoyed the Jamie Oliver inspired Buffet Breakfast.
- Easy check-in and out with easy access parking under the hotel (although an extra cost).

I had to go to Alesund t help out at our office there, and my good neighbor recommended this hotel. And frankly, I must say that I did not regret it. I stayed for six days, and enjoyed every minute of it. Room 503 was my "home away from home". The view out to the harbor and the scenic mountains was fantastic.
And such friendly staff at the front desk and especially in the restaurant. Talking about restaurant, the food was fantastic. A gourmets delight. Keep away from those posh expensive hotels. This is the place to stay when in Alesund.
I promise: Next time in Alesund, It will be at the Scandic.

Room Tip: 503, or any room in fifth floor facing the harbor.

Reviewed 25 September 2013

Enjoyed our stay here. Hotel is on the water-front, so great views of the harbour from the room. Staff are professional and friendly and good with advice for places to visit,etc...
As has previously been said by other reviewers, the breakfast here is really good - whether you want the full English or Scandinavian fish (or both...)!

Rooms are clean and decor is fine, mostly wood. Bathroom quite 'old fashioned' rather than with all modern fittings, so no power-shower for example.

Beautiful, quiet town - great for walks, visiting scenic fjords by ferry or car, and similar.
Good for change of pace - small seaside fishing town.
Shopping is quite boutiquey and expensive - wasn't for me.
Plenty of top seafood restaurants on the other hand.
Eating out is expensive so rather eat the quality local seafood than pay £20 for a burger...but it will be expensive wherever you go, based on our experience.

We stayed 5 nights which was probably a bit much on reflection - 3 nights would do it.
Would definitley recommend for a short break

Nice reviews of our surroundings too - I would like to point out that several of our visitors stays in Ålesund in order to reach sights during daytrips to Geiranger, bird island Runde, Trollstigen, The Atlantic Road and more. I would recommend 5-7 days to reach all.
