We spent one night in Ålesund, but hotel was so nice, we should stay 3 nights and visit the town and surrounding. It will be for next time. We lost one of our luggage, and reception call for us to airport to track it. It helped us because we received it the next day in our next hotel.

This is a beautiful hotel and situated in a good area. I wished I could have stayed longer but we were only there for one night. When we arrived, the guy at the front desk was so welcoming. We really appreciated that. Our room was immaculately clean and very comfortable. Everything that you need was handy. Breakfast the next day... More

This is a lovely hotel, newly renovated on the top floors. It's decorated in art nouveau style, with murals and some hardware. Spacious rooms with sky lights (room 411), lovely breakfast. The sole point of problem is an older elevator that sticks a bit and appears to have a weight limit of around 300 lbs. but that's trivial.

We were very pleased with this hotel. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly. Room 313 is excellent. All very clean and perfect location. The breakfast was fresh and fantastic choice. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend this hotel.

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
