If you are staying in Ålesund, this is your place: an hotel decorated in Jugendstil (Art Nouveau) that is one of the best examples of the style that was used when the city was rebuilt after the fire of 1904. Our room was huge and spaceous. The bathroom was fully equipped, the bed was very comfortable and there were two... More

Newly renovated, rooms are fresh and clean. Working television with the most important channels. Good placement near the places to visit and see. Ok breakfast, but a bit crowded. Service ok. Plenty of parking spaces with elevator to lobby. Several restaurants nearby.

We stayed there for one night and our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. It had a TV and mini bar. The hotel is located right in the centre above a shopping mall and eventhough it's super convenient, it also gets very noisy. Also there's parking but as it's owned by the town you need to pay. The breakfast... More

The hotel is centrally located in the city. The building is classic art noveau, but some of the common areas and the room we had are in need of refurbishment. It looks like some rooms have been fixed as some had much newer doors than ours. The breakfast buffet is very nice and was included in the room rate. The... More

this was actually an ok hotel but due to poor service and the terrible airport shuttle I had to make a minus. Thw hotel is nostalgic and clearly worthy of preservation but the front desk service was quite simply horrible. The hotel also has a deal with an overpriced and very little service friendly hotel shuttle. It says something when... More

We managed to check in with barely a word spoken to us by the receptionist - staff here were generally unfriendly to the point of chilliness. Our ‘Double’ room on the top floor was modern, furnished in a ‘minimalist’ style (stopped just short of being bare) with fairly cheap furniture. The pushed together single beds were under the eaves, to... More

The hotel is very centrally located. You can reach everything interesting within the city by foot. The rooms are nice, clean but a bit dated. Bathroom is clean but very tiny. There is some renovation work going on, but there are no complaints about noises. Breakfast buffet was very good. And there is a Egon restaurant directly connected to the... More

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
