“Great nordic hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2011

A great hotel in the center of ålesund town with and cozy old time feel to it.

Room was mordern with a glass room toilet bath build in the old room - coffemaker minibar og telly.

Breakfast was okay nothing special.

The open fireplace by the reception and the old house unik ambience makes this a hotel to return too.

This is our second visit to Aalesund and Brosundet, and we still love it! Kristina at the front desk is so qute and helpful. The beds is the best and we also tried the restaurant this time, we had a lovely meal and excellent vine. We will be back for sure! The parking in the street is still terrible...Love from Butterfly in Paris

Smart refurbish the old warehouse into hotel which retains the old part while adding in new facilities and design. Nice location that you can easily noticed near the harbour. As Norway is always expensive, the price of the hotel is actually very reasonable in this country, even though you can get a 5-star hotel room in Singapore with this pricing. Yes, nice buffet breakfast!!

Room Tip: Alesund is small, so, most of the hotels are in the city area

Good hotel, but strange rooms design - a glass screen between room and bathroom and toilet. Not pleasant at all and very uncomfortable.

hotel beautifully candle lit when we arrived, with a big lof fire. rooms are small but nicely done, with again small bathrooms. all have flat screen tvs, & wifi. our only criticism would be no drawer space at all.
breakfast was really good, with a selction of herrings, smoked salmon & delicious breads, plus loads more !
we didnt eat in the restaurant for dinner, as like verywhere in alesund it was mega expensive, it was however packed.
room 47 is the lighthouse, again small but amazing for a treat, you are served breakfast in your room over there, & receive a bottle of champagne & fruit on arrival.

Room Tip: 407 where we stayed is good as 2 windows overlooking the canla, some only have a small window, howev...

Having travelled in Norway for some time and gone from bad to worse we are delighted to have found Hotel Brosundet. Well priced, excellent rooms, quality fittings, beds and and linen, charming and welcoming reception, interesting design and above all a superb kitchen. The Hotel "Maki "restaurant is no doubt the best we have enjoyed all over this country , congratulations ! Michelin only rates 4 restaurants in Oslo, a big mistake, Maki in Alesund is far better than those.
