Stayed three nights in October with our three year old. We had a very tired looking and dated room on the top floor. The bathrooms had been renovated but the furniture was torn and dated and stained. We appreciated the evening meal and afternoon snack too. The food was basic and adequate. The lobby was comfortable as well. Staff were... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights when we visited Alesund in August. Very good location, near the Alesundet and about 5 mins walking from the bus station. It is very convenient. The hotel has a very homely and lovely atmosphere the minute we walked in. Staff were friendly and good with information when we needed it. Our room... More

Stayed for one night in November, in a jr.suite on the top floor. Location perfect, overlooking the water. Room was very nice, big enough not huge (low ceiling and roof beams in part of the room). Breakfast, afternoon waffles/coffee and evening "mini-buffet" with salad and a stew included in the price. Staff friendly and helpful. Restaurant and bars aplenty nearby.... More

This hotel hits the spot in every way. From the friendly staff to fabulous afternoon tea of waffles, dinner and breakfast. The only problem is we weren't there long enough. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the view over the water is wonderful. Even though you are in the city it was very quiet and peaceful to sleep.

This is a newly renovated hotel that still looks and feel old world. We had a room on the 4th floor and a hugh room for 3 of us and paid the extra to have a waterfront view that was worth the small upcharge. It overlooked the hillside with the zig zag path and the window opened to let in... More

My husband and I recently stayed here for 2 nights. Unfortunately for us our first night we arrived at midnight due to the rail system being upgraded and we had to take alternate transport from Oslo.

What a lovely hotel. Right on the waterfront, and in a gorgeous old warehouse. Our room overlooked the water and was clean and tidy. The reception staff were lovely. We love our free afternoon tea of make your own waffles! And the free buffet dinner & breakfast were fantastic! I loved Alesund so hopefully I'll be able to go back... More

It is around 20/25 mins by bus or taxi from the airport (the bus drops off close by and its a short 2 mins walk). Room was excellent with a very comfortable bed, nice shower and well equipped.
