Amazing hotel! From the entrance to the rooms, it's very special. The roof beams are left visible, and the middle of the old building, earlier presumably an inner courtyard, is now covered with glass roofing. There are several comfortable areas where to relax on the entry floor, and as a resident you'll have not only breakfast but afternoon tea and... More

It has become our favourite place in Aalesund. An old wharf building, transformed from Bacalhau export centre to modern hotel. With a northbound room on the top floor, we a magnificent view of the town harbour and the impressive Aksla mountain from our window, and we shared window sill with one of the locals (picture). Breakfast is adequate for most,... More

We got a really nice family room. Beds were really good. The hotel style is exceptional and the reception and dining area are really nice. The breakfast was good but the coffe awful. The location is really great with all attractions within walking distance. A parking garage is nearby.

Very friendly staff. Our room was really lovely - in the eaves of the building - and had a lovely "homely" atmosphere - great size with loads of space. It was a room that we enjoyed spending time in. Hotel in a good location for sight seeing. Really liked this hotel

Its at the heart of Bryggen. Location cannot be better. The room view was bad. Could not change to a room with view of wharf. Despite request. So the stay was as ordinary as one can imagine in a five star. The coffee machine was not working, but who wants to spend time in the room anyway.... Food was good,... More

Very friendly staff and helpful. Excellent food. Our room was on the small side and had no view - just the opposite wall of the hotel. Great location for exploring Bergen. Very calm atmosphere even though the hotel was quite busy.
