Hotel Brosundet was a real disappointment in Alesund. I understand the hotel is located in an old, renovated building, but the layout was completely counterintuitive to the comfort of its guests.
Our room, though a corner room with a nice view of the canal, was very cramped. The furniture arrangement only emphasized the lack of space. The bathroom, tucked away in a glass corner, was even more cramped and left no room for movement. The shower had a drainage problem. We alerted the front desk when we checked out, and they said it has to do with the slant of the floor. They said they’d check it out anyway, and I hope they do. On the plus side, the bed was very comfortable.
Breakfast was disappointing. The hot trays didn’t keep the food warm… biting into cold eggs wasn’t how I wanted to start my day.
As mentioned in previous reviews, the hotel does not have dedicated parking. The front desk directed us to a garage that was full, and we spent the next half hour driving around looking for another place to park. Make sure you have coins with you, the garage where we eventually found a space wouldn’t take our credit card.
If you have to be in Alesund, the location is central, but it’s certainly not a hotel to seek out as your top choice. With all of those elements combined, my stay was far from a relaxing experience.
