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

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
