Reviewed 28 April 2014

Stayed three nights in March. Will stay longer next time. The only improvement I can suggest is a mini bar option. Excellent value for money at Nordic values. Reception staff outstanding! So friendly and helpful. Very knowledgeable about Alesund and surrounds. Thank you.

Dear guest.

Thank you so much for your nice review. Reading it made us really proud.
It pleases me to hear that you were happy with the service provided by the staff.
Regarding the mini-bar, we have chosen to keep the fridges in the room, and have a show in the reception area.

We really hope that you stay longer next time, as you wished - and that you stop by my office to say hi.

Wishing you a wonderful summer.

Best regards Silje

Well positioned in Alesund, within walking distance of the main attractions and lots of good restaurants/bars. The reception staff were all very welcoming and, as you come to expect with Norway, they all spoke fantastic English. They were very helpful in advising places to visit, even outside of the immediate area. We drove to Gerainger on one day, to Giske and Godoya (a good walk up hill) on another, and to Orsta on the third, plus walked up the 418 steps in town to the main viewing point. Not everything was open as the summer season has yet to get underway but the weather was good so we could spend all the time outdoors. The ferries between islands run very frequently (and reasonably priced) so you can get around very easily and quickly.

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).
