Then why only 3 "stars" for a hotel which has been around tens of years and everything should be fine tuned to its best? Amazingly this hotel is lacking in routines and also at the frontdesk service at times. In hotel world the routines and customer satisfaction idea comes from manager level. Problems in management level reflects to all the... More

This is by far the best hotel in town; in the old town centre, with very comfortable rooms and a delicious breakfast buffet. Friendly and helpful staff. Located next to a large park. Ask for a room with a view of the harbour.

1) Location: Centrally located, most of the sights / Art Nouveau buildings / Bus stops / Cruise stop or harbor / tourist info center within walking distance = 10/10 (although, for people with motor disability or old folks, the steep climb to the hotel itself may be a bit challenging); PS: a) The 418 stairs to the Fjellstoua Viewpoint starts...

A bit of a slope climb but a very convenient location. Just minutes away from the city centre, shopping center mall, 10 minute walk to ship terminal for Hurtigruten cruises to the fjords, numerous restaurants etc. Adequate size room, absolutely excellent breakfast spread, very efficient front desk, luggage storage room etc. clean, efficient and was ideal for my 2 nights...

Wanted to book Radisson Blu but they are not available. Ended up here but really liking it! Had a beautiful view of Alesund from my room and wake up to the sound of seagulls every day! I'm not complaining because it feels close to nature! Only complains here were that shower room not separated properly. Half the toilet would be... More

The hotel itself is quite standard seen from the outside. The room is indeed very spacious as the bathroom was big and well equipped. We had a nice view from our window. It lies in a calm neighborhood, but indeed very close to the city centre. It has a touch of scandinavian minimalism, altough it has some very good facilities.... More

We stayed here for two nights in August 2014, and we were delighted with the hotel. It is on a hill very near the harbor. We chose this hotel because we thought it would be an easy walk to the Hurtigruten, but learned that the dock is being redone and the departure point for the ship was a few blocks... More

At the first sight, the building doesn't fit into the city scale. But it is the inner values that count. I had a double room and for me it was a lot of space. Two single beds standing together, to nice and comfy chairs, a small table to work on, TV - everything you need for a business stay. Free... More

Stayed here one night in August 2014. We got a room with view to a parking lot, not the best in the hotel, they surely had rooms at the same cost with better views. My wife found a used baby diaper in the trash and we thought about contacting the reception about this. We had limited time in Ålesund, and... More

This hotel is situated on a hill about 2 or 3 blocks from the main harbor area. Aksla viewpoint is around the corner. There is a quaint picturesque marina area called Brosundet about 2 blocks away. The checkin staff was very friendly and caring giving sightseeing and dining recommendations. We had a problem with our no chip credit card and... More
