“Not Good Value for Money”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

This is an old hotel and the rooms are very bland and lack character but are of a reasonable size. The was no safe in the rooms and no shampoo or tissues are supplied. Only one small bar of soap supplied. No coffee making facilities in the rooms. Breakfast had a good variety and waffles were available in the afternoon. We did not find the staff very friendly. We would not recommend this hotel.

When we arrived at the hotel on a Saturday night around 00:30 h we found a bunch of people hammering at the hotel door. Seemingly no one was there. It was only through the security services that we could alert the - possibly sleeping - lady who was supposed to be on duty. Not a good experience to start with! On top of this the excuse was simply "I did not know you were coming!"....

We stayed at Thon Opera Hotel in Oslo which was very nice, so when Lars Anderson of "Ticket" a travel agency in Oslo found us an unobtainable room in the same chain we were stoked.
By the way, for English speakers this guy at egertorget@ticket.no was very helpful in allowing us to fulfill a sudden urge to visit this amazing little town and its even more amazing surrounding area.
So when I read a few whines in other comments about this and that I laugh...
This is a FIRST class basic Hotel and if you do anything but sleep in it you are not visiting Alesund and seeing all the amazing things.
Also the staff at the Visitor Center a few hundred yards away on the pier are GREAT and saved our day by showing us a way to get by public bus to where the Ferry goes through the amazing World Heritage Fiord....then the next day with too little time to make it to the Atlantic Highway they told us to hike to the lighthouse at Alnes which again was a public transport treat an involved hiking on an abandoned highway on the North side of the Island...walkers and hikers be sure to research how to do this...!!
All in all between Thon Hotel, excellent tourism office and amazing public transport we had what the most expensive tour could not have delivered...!!

Room Tip: Take any room you are not here to look out the window...!!

I usually stay at Rica Hotel Parken, but decided to try this one instead, which was a downgrade. Nothing can beat the views from the Rica Hotel and from my room in this hotel the view was a run down building on the other side of the street. Also even though the rooms are quite newly renovated it felt cheap. Nice and clean though. Friendly staff.

Family friendly hotel with competitive prices close to the fishing harbour, Hurtigrutens harbour and terminal for airport buses.
Nice reception.
Interior and rooms are otherwise not completely modern..
Bathroom is a bit small
Large breakfast buffet included
Make your own waffles for free in the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room possibly with seaview in upper floors

Excellent family-friendly hotel located in the center of Ålesund. Fair price (1200 NOK) for a nice 4-bed-room during high season. Smal welcome bag for kids. Free internet available. Breakfast buffet could be improved.
