Would have given the full mark if i had stayed in a 'normal' room. Well, nothing wrong with the room, very clean, comfortable bedding, etc. Only problem is the window is part of the roof and cannot be shield off completely by the retractable curtain. Woke up 4.30am for every morning due to the early sunrise! The breakfast is the... More

We had five great days at the Scandic Parken in a well equipped room with fantastic views over the town and fjord at Alesund. Our double room was excellent with immaculate cleaning standards and nice modern decor. The breakfast was amazing and set us up for days of walking and offered lunch available for only £7.50 if you wanted a... More

This is a fairly standard hotel (definitely not 'boutique', but nor does it claim to be). The location is great and the price wasn't bad for Norway and our room had a wonderful view. The breakfast buffet was enormous but, as is often the case when there are heaps of options, it wasn't particularly good (except for the brown bread!).... More

We stayed one night at the Scandic Parken. The hotel is well located in the town centre, at 10-15 min walk from the Hurtigruten departure / bus station. On the pro side, the room was clean, modern and comfortable. The breakfast buffet is so huge you would like to stay another night to try everything (gluten free included). There is... More

Very good hotel located in the centre of Alesund; the rooms were comfy and the breakfast was excellent. It is an ideal place to base yourself to explore the area and the stunning scenery and to walk up the step to the viewpoint overlooking Alesund. Would use again.

A nice hotel in central Ålesund, with short distance (418 steps) to Fjellstua and a beautiful view over the landscape around Ålesund. At the same time the hotel is in the middle of the town with lots of shopping. The hotel has a very good breakfast.

Good central location. Easy check in and out. Good size clean room with good Wi-Fi. Able to stop outside and drop luggage before parking in the onsite car park which you have to pay for. Amazing buffet breakfast choice!

We stayed at the 7th floor in a standard double room. The room had a nice view over the harbour. It was comfortable, good wifi access, clean. The breakfast was excellent! A bit for every taste: warm food, salad, bread, juices, cereals, etc. The staff was nice. The location was very central (but Ålesund centre is small). And it is... More

Stayed here two nights for leisure. Centrally located in a quiet part of town, the hotel is a great choice for a stay in Aalesund. We booked an economy room and I was a little worried about noise when I realized that these rooms are located at street level, quite close to a nearby pub. However, our room (1003) had... More
