This hotel is superbly situated for ease of exploration of this charming town. Sure, it does not have its own parking, and that is inconvenient, but the multi-storey is just a stone's throw away and, depending on your time of arrival, the helpful staff will guide you on where you can park on the street for a period, and even...

This is the nicest hotel I've ever stayed at in Norway! It has tonnes of rustic charm and atmosphere. The rooms are super cute, and the fire place downstairs is a great place for a pint of local (expensive) beer. Nice breakfast, really nice staff and a location to die for. My view was right on the little harbour bit,... More

We were looking forward to our stay here, having read the favourable reviews. However, the off-hand manner of the reception staff on our arrival set the tone of a hotel that does not seem eager to please every guest. We were given very vague and unhelpful advice on parking; it was actually a very pleasant parking warden who directed me... More

Hotel Brosundet was a real disappointment in Alesund. I understand the hotel is located in an old, renovated building, but the layout was completely counterintuitive to the comfort of its guests. Our room, though a corner room with a nice view of the canal, was very cramped. The furniture arrangement only emphasized the lack of space. The bathroom, tucked away... More

Hotel Brosundet is a gorgeous little boutique hotel converted from an old warehouse with fantastic staff. The décor is wonderful with soft dark greys, wood floors, copper surfaces, rustic beams, rough linen curtains, atmospheric lighting and lots of glass to appreciate the sunshine dancing on the water. The wet room pods were great, but would be tricky to negotiate if... More

This is a beautiful, small boutique-ish hotel on the water front. The location is beautiful, but the drilling from the construction going on next to the hotel was a problem. There was no indication when we made the reservation for this hotel that there was construction going on. The noise was pretty loud and could occur duriing the day from... More

Dear sir/madam I am sorry that the noise from the construction was bothering you. The drilling is over now and new guests should not worry. Some of our rooms are a bit small, due to Hotel Brosundet being an older, listed building from 1907. I am glad my staff were able to change your room. Hotel Brosundet is located in... More

We loved staying here! Isabel at the front desk was AMAZING!! She hand guided us through the map, helped us with dinner suggestions and a taxi and offered very helpful insider tips for navigating the Fjords. The downside was no parking but I'm still giving five stars because Isabel completely knocked our socks off! The bedroom was so comfy and... More

We arrived at this hotel after traveling for 24 hours. We were exhausted and so hungry, but were told there was no room at the restaurant and no room service was available. There was no parking and the reception was unhelpful at providing suggestions as to where to park. For the price, they should have valet. The breakfast was ok... More
