I stayed at this hotel from 19. to 21. october, 2015 and my hotel room was at the third floor. I fumbled around a little while before I actually found the hotel (it was dark). But when I actually found it, I was met by a kind and helpful lady at the reception. Since then, I have been pleased with... More

At a modest price we had a really nice stay here. Unobtrusive staff, clean, comfortable. Very good breakfast. The hotel is well placed in the centre of Alesund and it suited our purpose very well. Easily reached on foot from tourist office near the harbour.

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
