“Great stay in Alesund”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2013

We really loved this hotel. It is conveniently located right next to the park entrance, 5 minutes walk from the ferry port, and 10 minutes walk from the bus station and cruise ships port. Which is not surprising since the whole Alesund can be walked through in 30-40 minutes. The staff is very nice and friendly. Our room on the 8th floor was not very big, but comfortable and very well maintained, and offered magnificent view at the city, port, fjord, and mountains. Breakfast was one of the best ones I've ever seen in hotels around the world. The only downside is that there's such a variety, and everything looks so attractive, that you can't help eating a lot. Perfect place for a night in Alesund!

Room Tip: Magnificent views from the top floors.

We chose hotel for location and advertised parking. Parking is under the hotel and managed by another organization. Payment was confusing - you insert your credit card upon arrival and again upon departing to pay. (I thought the machine ate my card upon entry and had to call hotel staff to help - they were patient and helpful). Hotel was very nice and as others have noted, one of the best breakfast buffets of our trip - after the 3 tour bus groups left and the staff restocked.

This hotel is a big one, and my impression is that the members of staff are trained and organized. Fast check-in, very nice rooms, ok fitness center, very delicious food (even with more than 800 guests attending dinner) and great surroundings. You can easily walk to a place you will have a nice view just behind the hotel.

Very nice hotel with beautiful sea view. Room very nice and clean, bathroom very beautiful. The room was bit hot. Maybe one of the best hotel breakfasts ever. Hill behind the hotel has very nice paths for running or walking with stunning views, naturally.

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.
