Reviewed 20 August 2014

This was a nice little hotel. Upon check-in, they offered hot fresh soup which was delicious and much appreciated as it was very cold and rainy when we arrived. The room was fairly large and the bed was comfortable. The restaurant in the hotel overlooked the harbor and had a good variety to choose from. It was fairly close to the main shopping and walking district.

Great location, within walking distance of everything. Had a room with a nice view of the waterfront and they provided a delicious soup as a free snack at 1600 in the lobby. Room was good sized with a window that opens fairly wide. Very good sleep with no undue noise and the staff was helpful.

No free parking near the hotel, not sure if this is all over Alesund or not

Breakfast buffet was good but not great by Norway standards.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the bay

Great location on the waterfront just around the corner from the small town center with a few restaurants and places to sit outside by the harbor and watch the boats. Ask for a sea view and watch the boats and ferries come and go. Delicious breakfast and friendly staff. Quiet and clean. Paid parking available in garage right below the hotel. Windows open for fresh air.

Room Tip: Room 500 had an incredible 180 degree full glass bay-type window with two comfortable reclining chai...

Dear guest.

Thank you so much for you review - it made us really proud.
And i totally agree with you - room 500, 400 6& 300 are amongst my favourites due to the amazing views. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the breakfast - and that you found the staff friendly - I will make sure to pass that message over to them.

Wishing you a wonderful fall, and hope to see you here again soon.

Stayed for 2 nights.
We had booked a room with twin beds, but when we checked in (at noon; normal check-in time is 3 pm) there was no room with twin beds already cleaned, so we got a room with a double bed.
Put our luggage in the room and went to visit Alesund church.
When we got back in the hotel, there was no problem to change rooms and got a room with twin beds.
Good service, comfortable beds, nice and clean room (with Stressless seats !) and nice view over the harbour.
Great breakfast buffet in a large breakfast room with nice view over the harbour.
If you're lucky you can park in front of the hotel where you only have to pay between 8 am and 4 pm; which is cheaper than the hotel parking.

Dear guest.

Thank you so much for giving us feedback - so that we can learn from our mistakes, and try to do better another time.

I am very happy to hear that the room was nice and renovated - but I am sorry that if was noisy. Being situated in the 5th floor, it usually is no noise there.

During the high-season the reception might be busy due to the number of guests, we try our best to avoid our guests having to wait - but during the peaks that sometimes happens. I am really sorry.

It has been unusual warm weather in Ålesund this summer - we are mostly used to rain and quite low temperatures, so i agree that sometimes the rooms has been warmer than we would like them to be.

When we have a lot of kids staying at the hotel, we sometimes put on cartoons on the receptionTV so that they can sit there while their parents check-in etc.

Again - I am sorry that our hotel dissapointed you - and hope to see you back here so we can try to make our impression better.

Wishing you a wonderful summer.

Best regards Silje

We spent 4 nights in Ålesund at this Scandic hotel. The family room we got was in fact a room for disabled travellers. Fair enough as definitively big, but not really kids frendly with alarm buttons and unsecured power plugs everywhere. Actually even one without its front pannel and all the wiring visible. The location is quite and so are the nights. Bedding is average. The staff was kind of friendly but not ready for the extra "client statisfaction" mile. The second day we had to complain about room cleaning, bed where not made and one out of two bins emptied only. The breakfast buffet is supposed to close at 10am. You would expect in such an hotel that they keep it open for 10 more minutes for the guests still in the room, but at 5 to 10 the buffet area is closed. And one day, at half past nine there was not butter and no regular milk anymore.... So definitivelly not an hotel I'll call at again if we happen to travel to this nice city again.

It suited our needs well. The room was a bit quirky and my husband kept on hitting his head on the slanted ceiling above the bed (and he is quite short).

The only real problem I had was the room was very, very hot when we first came in. It took the whole night for it to cool down as the sun beat down through our window until it set .

Room Tip: The opposite side of where the sun shines in the summer months.
