Thanks a lot for taking time writing this good review. I am so glad that you felt that our hotel was almost like home, that it is perfect. Welcome back to Clarion Collection Hotel Bryggen.
We spent 3 nights at Clarion Hotel in Alesund in early June 2012. It is nicely located in the city center on a quite street, with windows overlooking the channel. The room we lived in was amazingly large (actually, 2 rooms and a kitchen) with a lot of historic artifacts from the XX century – musical instruments, radios, old photos on the wall. The breakfast was nice and moreover, the price for the room included afternoon waffles (which guests prepared for themselves in the dining area) and dinner! We enjoyed the sauna and the relaxing room.
To get the highest ranking, Clarion still needs to work a bit: to have rooms better cleaned (we sometimes had an impression it was not done at all) and to replace some cheap, odd-looking furniture – and it would be a very stylish place indeed.
Thank you for giving us such good feedback. It is nice to hear that you enjoyed the room, the food and also the relaxing/sauna area. We will focus better on the cleaning and I will have in mind your opinion about the furniture. Thank you again and welcome back to Clarion Collection Hotel Bryggen.
They’ve done a nice job of converting an old warehouse to a modern hotel. The rooms are around a central atrium with exposed wood beams. Our room (413) was very spacious. The beds were comfortable and there was free wifi. No bathtub, but a very roomy shower in a large bathroom. All in all, a nice modern room. The evening buffet is good (fish the night we were there) although lacking any dessert and the breakfast buffet was very good, everything you need to start the day. We arrived and left by bus and the hotel is only a short walk from the bus station. If you have time, you can walk around the nearby streets that have an interesting collection of buildings constructed after the 1904 fire in art nouveau style. Our room was on the street side but there is little traffic in this part of town and it was very quiet. I imagine you’d need to pay extra for rooms overlooking the water, but it wouldn’t hurt to ask. We normally stay in bed and breakfast places but there didn’t seem to be any available in Alesund and with the breakfast and dinner furnished this place was a good alternative at a reasonable (for Norway) price.
Thank you for taking time writing about your stay at our hotel. I am glad you liked the style, the beds, the food and our beautiful city Ålesund. I hope you will come back one day and I wish you a nice weekend.
Location was excellent and our room was large and very pleasant with a sea view. The staff were very helpful. The "light evening meal" was a substantial dinner consisting of soup, hot main course, salad buffet, dessert and cheese and biscs! The large reception area and lounge was sumptuous and comfortable.
Thank you very much. It is so fantastic that you enjoyed yourself and I will forward these good words to all my colleges. Welcome back to Clarion Collection Hotel Bryggen.
My girlfriend and I stayed here one night and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff is friendly and helpful. The interior decor is attractive and themed around the local historical fishing industry.
There is tasty food available almost all the time. My girlfriend loved the waffles in the afternoon.
The room was simple, but large and comfortable. The only minor issue was that the bathroom light turned out after a minute if we didn't wave our hands at the motion detector. The bed was extremely comfortable. I didn't want to get out of it.
If you are there for strolling around town then the location is excellent. I recommend walking to the top of the nearby hill for the view. It is about 20 minutes of stenuous walking, but the view is great.
Thank you for taking time giving us such a good review. The light in the bathroom is an environment action, but I will double check if it is possible to change the monitor time.
I am so glad that we manage to make your stay so enjoyable with food, staff and comfortable beds, which is so important. Wish you a pleasant summer and welcome back to Clarion Collection Hotel Bryggen.
My sister and I stayed here for 3 nights. I was expecting to be underwhelmed based on the photos I'd seen here before leaving, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food available at nearly all times was fresh and delicious. The breakfast was excellent! The beds were VERY comfortable and the 2 twins (pushed together) really were plenty big for 2 people who don't like sharing a bed. I don't have a single complaint. An excellent hotel all the way around. I would stay here again!
Tank you very much for the fantastic feedback about your stay at our hotel. I am so glad that you had such a good experience with everything from food to our people working here. Thank you again and welcome back to Clarion Collection Hotel Bryggen.
