Nice authentic city hotel in a very nice city. Room 204 is large and spacious with high ceilings, unlike the humble bathroom which has incredibly tiny dimensions. Internet runs freely through out the hotel and breakfast was rich and varied (Typical to Rica Hotels). Hot drink machine is located in the lobby area (no tea or coffee in the room).... More

We have very good experience with Rica hotels and found this one nice and comfortable. The hotel is in the middle of the city centre with possibility to pay extra in for parking in a nearby garage, which was ok. The building is historic and nice, and we found the room comfortable and spacious. The wifi worked perfectly. The bathroom... More

Alesund is an interesting city for those who are fond of Jugendstil and Art Nouveau. And the Rica Hotel Scandiavia is in one of these Jugendstil buildings. Furthermore, it is a comfortable hotel, spacious rooms, professional staff, good breakfast. Look for the details, the elevator, the staircase, the breakfast room, the lobby. And then take your time to walk the... More

Not trying to be critical. We were 3 touring in Norway, and wanted something special in Alesund. Billed as the Art Nouveau hotel, it is! Beautifully designed, the lovely morning buffet and coffee/tea 24 hours, nice staff and well preserved design aspects. However, the rooms and dining room could have done with a bit more detail me thinks. But at... More

We enjoyed the hotel's Art Nouveau design. It is located close to the city center, waterfront and Aksla viewpoint. Service was professional. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. Very good filling breakfast served in a lovely breakfast room. Overall good price/quality ratio.

Arrived at this hotel at the last minute. Googled for it prior to arrival, and the hotel quoted us a price above what we checked online. Upon informing her about what we found online, she agreed to give us the online rate, so that was very nice. Room was awesome and bathroom was very clean. The breakfast the next morning... More

I stayed at the Rica Scandinavie for 3 nights and it was just as I hoped it would be.... full of beautiful Art Noveau detailing in the public areas with a gorgeous old fashioned lift..... so much character. Had an attic room with big skylights, 2 separate twin beds and plenty of space. Bathroom was good with a great shower... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Rica immensely. It is well situated near the heart of the city and it was very comfortable. It is an old hotel, so don't expect a modern finish on the inside although the bathrooms were very modern. Good breakfasts each morning and a great coffee machine in the lobby!
