We tried to walk to the hotel from the Hurtigruten Terminalen but went the wrong way around Alesund, then went to the wrong Scandic. By the time we arrived at the right hotel we were in a bit of a huff to say the least! If we went the right way in the first place then it would have taken... More

This was a nice hotel in a great location. Everything - port, water, restaurants, cafes... was within walking distance. There is also a parking garage which is a public lot but located next to the hotel. Very convenient. The rooms were nice and loved that our room had a tub. What a treat! We had a room with two single... More

Visited Alesund with no reservation in hand. There are some very nice hotels along the waterfront, but felt that this one would be quieter and less expensive. It was terrific. The staff was great, helping me with figuring out the ferry schedule. The room was very reasonably priced and quite nice. The hotel was very clean and up to date.... More

Fantastic breakfast with a good variety. Room very confy. Staff ok. Location is strategic...easy to walk about. 4min to waterfront, 6 min to bus terminal, shopping street 3min walk. However the hotel is a bit hidden from the main bus route, so we had to ask driver for directions.

Same style as its fellow hotel in Oslo, though my room was nicer. I liked it more than the Oslo hotel and found my room more comfortable (maybe because it was bigger). Airconditioning working here as well. Good central location, friendly and helpful staff and good breakfast. Free wifi all over the hotel worked fine.

Stayed here on business. Lovely 7th floor room with a panoramic window view of Fjellstua. Modern style, comfy seating and bed, wooden floors, walk in shower, hairdryer, free wifi. No full length mirror though. Hotel is up a steepish hill, so take a taxi if you're not up to the walk. Airport to hotel is 20 mins, 400 NOK taxi... More

Althought the Hotel is Kind of dated everything is kept in very good condition - the staff is friendly and helpfull - the rooms are really spacious and clean. Best Thing has to be the breakfast buffet (plan enough time for it, first you're overwhelmed by the variety)

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
