Typical Scandic hotel with efficient check-in and nice but small rooms. I used the gym a couple of times and it has some free weights and cardio gear but is not exactly fully equipped - better than nothing though. Breakfast is truly immense and if you were living cheap you could easily take in your 2500 calories for the day... More

We stayed here for two nights and the first night was miserably warm. We asked if they had a fan and they did not have any available. My husband asked the following day if any were available and asked to speak with management. The manager, a lovely blond woman, drove to the next town over to get a fan for... More

Scandic Parken hotel is centrally located very close to the Old Town of Ålesund and the steps going up to Mount Aksla - Fjellstua Utsiktspunkt (Fjellstua View Point). From here you can see the breathtaking panorama of Ålesund and the surrounding archipelago. Upon arrival at the hotel we were welcomed by the friendly hotel staff. We got excellent harbor view...

Location: City centre, however, its not one of the old charming building which you will see a lot around alesund Rooms: Clean, spacious, fully furnished and worth the... More

We stayed in the Scandic Parken for two nights and had a huge room (407) at the front just over the entrance lobby looking down on to its flat roof. Be careful because there is more that one Scandic brand hotel in Alesund and we went to the wrong one first. We had a huge lounge with a dining table... More

The view to the back, was not much to see. Booked the cheapest possible through hotels.com so view was not a priority. Room was clean, no noise from other rooms. Breakfast was good, with a wide variaty to select from. I picked this hotel from recommendations of a friend, was not disappointet.

When we arrived, we discovered that the parking costs money from 8am till 4pm. The city itself has few garages and parking spots, so you might use the hotel's parking. We got a room on the ground floor, with a view to the parking lot, we asked to change it and got a nicer room in the third floor. The... More

Good hotel with a perfect location in the centre of Ålesund! We had a comfortable, light and very Norwegian room with HUGE windows and a lively view. Public areas are lovely, spacious and filled with modern art and the staff is professional and smiling. Over the last 35 years I have been staying an average of 100 nights per year... More

Good Hotel. Limit English at reception desk but he explained us how to get to the hurtigruten boat. Friendly staff. Nice room, good bed, good sleeping and very nice view over the water and cruises. Hotel has no parking. Only expensive parking underneath the building which is strange. The paying machine is even more crazy. Anyway we had a great... More
