Easy fo find from Hurtigruten drop-off point. We had the suite, Room 501. (Unrequested)ted). This carries Nordic minimalism to extremes, but we soon got used to it and enjoyed having the space. Breakfast not quite up to standards set at other parts of this holiday but absolutely fine, nonetheless. The female Reception staff member we interacted with was particularly pleasant... More

We had a lovely overnight stay here in Ålesund. The room and bathroom were large and very clean. Beautiful crisp linen on the beds and 24 hour reception service. Staff were very helpful and we were able to leave our luggage there all day after check out, which was handy as we were catching a midnight cruise to Bergen.

Thon hotels are becoming a common hotel chain, having hotels (often more than one) in many European cities, mostly in the north. The standard is generally good, some being higher class than others. This one here is among the regular. My experience was very short, as I only stayed there one night, arriving very late, and leaving shortly after breakfast.... More

We stayed at the Thon Hotel, Alesund recently. The best feature was the staff who were really welcoming, friendly and informative. It was in a good location, close to the harbour, shops and museums. The room was spacious and really comfortable. It was also reasonably priced. The fee included a cold buffet dinner and a continental breakfast. For those on... More

Thon hotels offer a good if basic service, with cheerful, friendly and helpful staff. The rooms in Alesund are comfortable and larger than I expected. The only thing that let this hotel down slightly was the attention to the breakfast service as some of the hot food was cold and not well presented, and things like fruit juice ran out.
