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

The hotel is conveniently located at the heart of the city centre, right by the sea/harbour where the Hurtigruten ship stops, as well as close to the main bus station. It's a tranquil street, right off the pedestrian street (main shopping street). Our rooms were clean and quiet, and the breakfast was fine. The staff was very service-minded and pleasant.

I' ve stayed in several Thon hotels in Norway and this is so far the worst of them. The room was big enough but unfortunately not very clean. The bed was really small and the room was too hot during the night. The breakfast was a disappointment with the poorest selection.

We've stayed there just for a night after late arrival of the Hurtigrouten-ship. The room was OK, a bit shabby. The people at reception were friendly but a bit tired so not concentrated at the beginning. Some kind of kerfuffle. Breakfast was OK.

Very nice hotel in a very convenient location. While in norway I didn't stay in more Thon hotels, but I think next time I'll repeat in Moré thon hotels, clean and nice rooms. We couldn't have breakfast because we left very early and they let us eat cold food from the buffet. Very good.
