A modern hotel with nice rooms within one of Alesund's art nouveau buildings for which Alesund is so famous. Breakfast is good with a wide range of dishes (cereals, norwegian, cooked, continental) plus free coffee, tea, hot choc all day to guests. About a 10min walk from the bus station or 15mins from Hurtigruten's ferry terminal (near the bus station).... More

We found the room to be spacious, comfortable, and tastefully furnished. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the wifi worked well. The bathroom was large and contained a variety of complimentary toiletries. The breakfast LOOKED quite good, but 30 minutes before it was meant to finish, there wasn't much left, which was not replenished during that time. There was also... More

We stayed here for two nights during a weekend in July. The hotel is very centrally located, but when arriving by car there was nowhere to park just outside. Instead we parked at St Olav’s Plass just a couple of minutes’ walk from the hotel. Parking was free on Sundays and after 16.00 on Saturdays (otherwise 15 NOK/hour). There was... More

We stayed 2 nights here, which were the least expensive nights during our trip to Norway, and after seeing the very average reviews written earlier in the year, it turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. We had an extremely comfortable bed in a modern, hspacious, refurbished room. There was a great choice for breakfast (including a whole section... More
