simple hotel with all facilities you need; restaurant closed most of the time; nearby you can find some good food, in particualr in the town centre; ask for a room in the new wing, as they are quite nice and modern.

Good hotel in a OK location in Ålesund. Doesn't have much of a view, though, but short distances to everything worthwhile. Service is very good and kind staff. Prices are typical midrange, Norwegians prices considered. Conference facilities are very nice, lots of small meeting rooms and spacious larger ones.

Nice hotel with different room categories, including smoking rooms.
Rooms are decorated in a simplistic and stylish scandinavian way.
Very good breakfast is included, as is free Wifi in the whole hotel.
Central location. Friendly and helpful staff.

Some highlights allow one to forget or lessen the irritation of other notable distractions. Breakfast at the Rica Parken, along with the spectacular views overlooking the Harbor, would win over many and pull the overall experience away from the 'Dark Side'. Bland, square rooms, a shower with no shower stall, a lounge that needs a face lift, and...small stuff, but irritating, especially when the bathroom floor is soaked after a shower. Step out of the bathroom, take in the spectacular view and the shower doesn't matter. Have breakfast and the negatives are all balanced and forgotten.

Room Tip: Get a harbour view as high up as possible.

According to me, this hotel has the best location in Ålesund, away from the noisy harbour, where several other hotels are located, on a hill overlooking the beautiful city of Ålesund. Great view from the hotel and right behind the hotel is a small park and a steps to the top of the mountain and the mountain cabin with an even more stunning view. Down by the hotel, just step right of the reception and restaurants, shooping and entertainment is right at the tip of your toes.

It is with some mixed feelings I give this hotel 4 stars. I've been here several times and I have enjoyed all my stays here, but unfortunately, they have been renovating the kitchen lately and their temporarily solution just isn't good enough. Otherwise even the breakfast here is worth the stay. Let's just hope they will be back to their good old selves after the renovation and we can finally enjoy one of Norway's best hotel breakfasts again.

My favorite rooms are off the main building in a previously residence building, now connected to the hotel. Most of the rooms in this part differ from each other and for a frequent hotel stayer it's so nice with just a little variation. One of them on the corner has a huge corner window in the bathroom with probably one of the worlds best shower views. The window is big enough to actuaøøy have a seat and just take in the nice view. As go for most rooms in this hotel they are modern, spacious and well equipped with flat screen tv, minibar and hairdryer.

Staff are plesant and friendly. Gym room, which could have been better equipped, but plus for big screen tv and sauna.

Stayed one night. Nice and comfortable room, with free WiFi (fast connection).Very good breakfast, with wide selection of food.
The hotel is located uphill, but within short distance of bus station and ship docks.
The hotel restaurant is fabulous! Two chefs are encharged of the kitchen. Exquisit food. Not to be missed.

Room Tip: Do not miss the restaurant!
