We were booked into another hotel but when we arrived in Alesund having competed in the Tall Ships race we thought that this hotel looked far nicer. We changed our booking and stayed here for 5 nights. The staff were polite and helpful. The food was excellent, done in a buffet style which meant you could choose the things you... More

This is a lovely hotel with a central floor to roof open foyer / landings. The meals were good. On our three nights we had fish stew, lasagne and salmon. Some tables overlook the water. We were lucky to have our own English Breakfast tea bags to supplement the hotel's Earl Grey and fruit teas. Coffee and tea is available... More

We had a great time staying at this hotel in May. Our son loved making waffles in the afternoon. It was a nice surprise to find out that they served light evening meals every night! Comfortable, charming and clean rooms with friendly staff. We will definitely stay at this hotel again!

Good service, prime location, local history is part of the building, worth spending a night extra to experience the town at local pace, get a room towards the water, bring good shoes and walk the town, good restaurants near by, also the best store for ships/boat supplies - Eidsvik skipshandel.

That said I'd give it two stars elsewhere in the world. It's just that in this part of Norway this is as good as it gets Pros: nice open atrium, good location, clean Where it fails: really narrow beds. Good luck if you are tall and/or wide. Very limited toiletries in the bathroom

This hotel is a great example of an old structure combined with modern design, all features are carefully chosen, like the big vases or light fittings, well done to the architects. This is also the first time where one member of staff covers the reception and the bar, interesting concept. One downside the double beds are two parts not a... More

Hotel looks nice both inside and outside. Breakfast is pretty good. There was no air conditioner, safe box, teapot in the room. Hotel is located on a street with number of pubs so it gets too noisy at night. Hard to fall asleep before 3am. Dinner was pretty poor. I'd rather eat in a cafe or restaurant.

We spent one night at this hotel. The room was very nice and quiet. The hotel is right in the center of the town, walking distance from the ship terminal. They provide breakfast and dinner as part of the room rate. Dinner is a bit limited but since it is free it was good enough. Breakfast buffet was great. We... More
