From the outside the hotel does not look attractive, but the inside is ok. The rooms are clean and relatively large. The staff is very helpfull. Pity is that sometimes people smoke in the entrance. Breakfast is very good, there is a swimming pool but in fact not suitable for swimming. Hotel gives value for money.

Bit distant from the bus station and port and rather plain outside but quite well furnished and comfortable inside. Staff very helpful. Excellent breakfast buffet. Satisfactory Wi-Fi. Free coffee. The town isn’t my favourite, overrun with cruise ship tourists. A useful base camp but not much more. Restaurants damned expensive.

Nice hotel, close to the town center. Interior is modern and clean. Breakfast was very good, with a variety of products to choose from. In the lobby you can get all the free Nespresso you want. The hotel itself doesn't have a bar, but there was a minibar in my room. Staff were very friendly and helpful. After checking out... More

We booked in this hotel before joining The Tall Ships fleet. The room was large with an extra bed. The reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was served in an large spacious room and was good.

The main reason we went to Alesund was that it is the starting point for the Golden route day excursion, including a ferry trip on the Geiranger Fjord. We saw this as being a crucial component of our whole Scandinavian tour. We were therefore shocked to find that the phone numbers, which were listed on our itinerary as being necessary... More

The staff went extra mile to help me search on line the address of stave church in Averoy, plus giving me tips in parking. The hotel also offers 75 NOK for a night to park in the hotel parking lot, unfortunately for us that the hotel lot is full. We parked on the street ( Tollbugata ) on the right... More

The location of the hotel is near the city centre, and in walking distance to serveral restaurants and pubs. I was welcomed very well. The styling and rooms is average. The TV-reception was a bit lousy. There is not much to complain about, but not much to be excited about either.

Stayed here for three nights in early February. Nice and centrally located. We arrived by car and had to rely on street parking, which turned out to be easily accessible. Our room was as expected, with a minibar, a reasonably large TV screen and easily accessible and well-working wifi. Breakfast: Average. Reception: Excellent, plenty of good advice concerning restaurants and... More
