We stayed one night here in June 2014. Our room was in the modern block and was fresh and clean. It was on the first floor; we didn't have a view but that didn't matter and we found it was very quiet. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The highlight of our stay was the breakfast which was amazing; there was a large choice, everything was well stocked and it was all delicious. A nice touch is that you can purchase a lunch box very reasonably and fill it with items from the breakfast bar which made a really good lunch for us.

My most important requirement for a hotel is to have sleep. It is not possible here. I just walked down to complain, I was told that other rooms was not better! The "music" is going to continue until 3 am, and then I loose 4 hours of sleep. I am angry...

We stayed at the Rica Parken on a business trip in the first week of April 2014. It was very pleasant, clean, well appointed and the service was fantastic.

The best breakfast in Europe so far in my travels over the last few years, The walk to the top of the hill behind the hotel and the view of Alesund is just amazing, especially at sunset.

Several great restaurants with in very easy walking distance and the hotel restaurant serves good food as well if you do not fancy getting out.

Very happy and hope to return again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Bay

This is my favorite hotel in Aalesund. Good service and very good breakfast. The rooms are great and clean and I had a ocean view. The hotel has a very good location and it's walking distance to every restaurant and bar worth visiting in Alesund.

Arrived here in January 2014 for 3 night stay. This is a business trip. I took taxi from the airport. Hotel has a big lobby and bar to the left and checking in counter on the right. The room I have is a good one as I get to see the sea. However the room is sort of old ish. The walls are really thin and my room has a door which is shared by the room next door so I can hear every single conversation next door!

My room has 2 single beds that are joined together to be a double (seems to be a norm in Norway). The room is a good decent size. Bathroom is good too. No bath just a shower room. There is no ironing facility in the room so one needs to take it to the Ground Floor to iron it. It's located in the gym, which is big but in terms of machines and equipment, I have seen better! There is a sauna too.

The breakfast is the best I think. Lots of variety and not very busy. I have eaten at different times and it's always very quiet unlike other hotels I've stayed in.

Hotel is located on top of the city. Very close to the city centre and high street with shops and some restaurants. Egon is a good place to go eat. There is also the cinema nearby and a McDonalds.

Next to the hotel is a path leading to the top of the city where you can get amazing view. Can't remember what it's called now. But you have to climb more than 400 steps but it's worth it.

Finally hotel staff are attentive, fast free wifi, and finally there is a coach that picks you up to the airport. You just need to book with the Reception and they will tell you what time.

Overall a nice hotel and good location and would stay again next time
