I had a room on the 8th floor, and it was really quiet and comfortable, despite they are building a tunnel just outside the hotel. It has a comfortable bed and the facilities were great. The breakfast was really great, and I could not yet see any negative effects caused by the Scandic takeover on the breakfast selection or quality.... More

Friendly welcome and good service at the breakfast buffet. The buffet is probably the best available in town. Receptionist available. The hotel has gym facilities and, as alternative, give you access to Stamina gym, 10 min. walk A room with harbour-/sea- view was requested but I got a room looking into the Aksla hill and the kindergarten.

The breakfast itself was worth the visit. We loved it! We had a great stay at Rica Parken Hotel. The location is great, and easy to find. Parking in the garage is a pluss. We had two double rooms. One of them was spacious, and the other one a bit more cramped. However, both of them were clean and nicely... More

This is a wonderful Alesund hotel, ideally located where the beautiful city center meets the world famous stairs, and will exceed your expectations as it did mine. I am from California and have high standards and a degree of pretension. I appreciated the quality, comfort, convenience and value I experienced here. The management and staff are true "hospitality professionals." They... More

It is a matter-of-fact hotel, with reliable service and clean, although small rooms, located in the very centre of the city. It is near shopping areas, the bus station and the port. The airport is a fifteen minute tax ride away

The hotel was a little hard to find at first and it was all uphill, but, we had a very nice stay here. It's not too far from the bus station and actually there's a stop down the hill that the buses will stop at to go to Andalsne if you don't want to walk all the way over to... More

A very nice hotel situated in the centre of town only a short walk from the Hurtigruten Wharf. The room was quite large and had a nice view. Breakfast was excellent. The staff that we dealt with, the front desk and the breakfast team, were all excellent. We did a day trip up to Geiranger by ship and back by... More

As usual on Rica hotels, you get an excellent stay at this hotel. Wonderful breakfast, very good lunch and well-equipped rooms. The atmosphere on this hotel is perhaps a little nondescript, could-be-anywhere-design, but no doubt you will have a comfortable stay at Rica Parken. All the same, I would add some downsides to my stay: - The hotel had messed... More
