Nice hotell close to everything in Ålesund. Parking is expensive around here though. Nice hotel, clean and fresh looking rooms. The breakfast is very good - lots to choose from at the buffet. Many bus tourists though, but not to crowded. Nice walk from behind the hotell up to a view point - very nice for an evening or morning... More

We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights during the weekend. Were upgraded to a suite on the top floor with a great view on the mountain park. A very rich breakfast and a personal service made it a very pleasant stay.

Sorry I will never be back in this hotel: 1. Terrible TV service, 10 channels and not even CNN. 2. Unfriendly staff. Having a late afternoon beer out by the front of the hotel in the smoking section, a receptionist of the hotel came out and with poor manners confiscated our beer can arguing that the beer was not bought...

Dear Juan, Thank you very much for your review. We are sorry that your stay did not live up to your expectations. The laws concerning alcohol are very strict in this country. Allowing a guest to drink his own alcoholic beverages at the tables outside our hotel can result in our losing our licence to serve alcohol. As a hotel... More

We stayed in this hotel for a week as part of a motorcycle tour. The hotel was very clean, the breakfast buffet was huge, and the staff was very friendly. The room was a little tight for two of us for a week with all our gear, but the gorgeous view over the city (sort of a miniature version of... More

Ordered a room with a view and got a great room in the 6th floor overlooking the city, the sea and the mountains nearby. Easy to park in the parking house below the hotel. The service was great both in reception and breakfast. The breakfast was really good, with lot of variety, there was even a separate kids table with... More

Clean rooms and typical Scandinavian style. I had a nice view from the 6th floor on the seaside, huge window to see in all directions. Breakfast is very good, plenty of choices of bread, cereals, continental style and typical Norwegian food. Service at reception is friendly. Will be my next place to stay in this town.

Spent a weekend here after a fantastically scenic drive over the mountains (Lom, Dalsnibba, Geiranger). This hotel is very centrally located, offers in-house parking for a fee, and welcomes you in a large lobby area staffed by a young and friendly staff. The room was fine, nicely furnished and had wall-to-wall windows that offered a very nice view - on... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Arrived in middle of night on Hurtigruten. Only 300m walk so easy to get there. Check in very efficient. Well located in town. One street back from main shopping street and only 10 mins walk to all main features of town. Good buffet breakfast. Make sure you are there early as they clear away very prompt....

Looks to be a great hotel, but a bit worn over the years. Probably one of the best breakfasts at the west coast of Norway. Great location in the city. Walking distance to all major tourist sights i Ålesund.

We stayed in Scandic Parken for just 1 night and were completely satisfied. It's location is very convenient for city exploration. Rooms are decent size and very clean, WiFi was strong and stable. Few thing that worth mentioning 1. There is a small free parking lot for customers in the back of hotel as parking in Alesund could be tricky.... More
