This very basic hotel about 1 km from the hub of Alesund. Staff lacked enthusiasm with general enquiries. Room was basic, but nothing extra supplied ie shower toiletries, tissues or extra toilet rolls not supplied. When asked for soap containers to be refilled nothing eventuated. Room was hot and stuffy, No A/c in most of these hotels so ears plugs... More

Only one small bar of soap supplied. No coffee making facilities in the rooms. Breakfast had a good variety and waffles were available in the afternoon.... More

When we arrived at the hotel on a Saturday night around 00:30 h we found a bunch of people hammering at the hotel door. Seemingly no one was there. It was only through the security services that we could alert the - possibly sleeping - lady who was supposed to be on duty. Not a good experience to start with!... More

We stayed at Thon Opera Hotel in Oslo which was very nice, so when Lars Anderson of "Ticket" a travel agency in Oslo found us an unobtainable room in the same chain we were stoked. By the way, for English speakers this guy at egertorget@ticket.no was very helpful in allowing us to fulfill a sudden urge to visit this amazing... More

I usually stay at Rica Hotel Parken, but decided to try this one instead, which was a downgrade. Nothing can beat the views from the Rica Hotel and from my room in this hotel the view was a run down building on the other side of the street. Also even though the rooms are quite newly renovated it felt cheap.... More

Family friendly hotel with competitive prices close to the fishing harbour, Hurtigrutens harbour and terminal for airport buses. Nice reception. Interior and rooms are otherwise not completely modern.. Bathroom is a bit small Large breakfast buffet included Make your own waffles for free in the hotel.

Excellent family-friendly hotel located in the center of Ålesund. Fair price (1200 NOK) for a nice 4-bed-room during high season. Smal welcome bag for kids. Free internet available. Breakfast buffet could be improved.

Good value for money hotel, and excellent service - was allowed to check in several hours early. Only Hotel in Ålesund with a pool, but this was closed for maintenance during my stay. Enjoyed the fact that the staff were predominantly locals, with knowledge of what the town had to offer. To sleep with the window open made for noisy... More

The family and I were in Ålesund last week to visit a friend who came from Ona to meet us. We had a good 2N stay at the hotel, which is located near to the pier. We had clean and adquate rooms, though it was without beverage making facilities. The beds were superb, fast and good for bad backs. But... More
