Thanks for your comments regarding First Hotel Atlantica.
I am glad you liked the location of the hotel, og the other hand I am very sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your stay with us.

Regarding the rate you are referring to, that was due to high occupancy in the city of Ålesund and the same with parking. After 4 p.m until 09.a,m and in the weekends it is free parking in the streets and just around the corner we have two parkinghouses. I am sorry of you were not informed by front office staff.

When it comes to the hotel, we are under renovation, and as you probably saw, we have renovated the lobby, restaurant, conference area and some of the bedrooms. The rest of the hotel will be renovated this winter, and I believe it will be a fantastic hotel when we are finished.

Again I am very sorry for your impression of us, and if you ever come to Ålesund again, please contact the manager for a great deal and an upgrade.

Thanks for the comments,

All the best
Gyrid Eggen
Manager

Smelly carpets and gloomy lighting. Trying to open door to balcony - covered with gull-droppings - the window fell in. Yet a magnificent view of art-nouveau buildings and the canal from here. Good beds. Turning on the hot-water fawcett once the whole thing came off in my hand, water gushed for 10 minutes before I managed to screw it on again. Staff casual amateurs, yet genial, seemingly misunderstanding their role. Breakfast eaten with hellish motown-music, NO peace at a meal when one needs this, and staff 'forgetting' necessities like orange juice, fresh bread rolls, etc. Parking a hellish problem. Here you have to find a parkingplace cellar, 12 kr an hour - amazingly cheap, in Oslo its 50 kr an hour, well about US$8 - meaning that the bill for a day increases by 288 kr. This is shocking, but so much else is in overpriced Aalesund. A tip: ignore the ethnic eating places with frozen instead of fresh fish - yes, frozen fish, in a port and county that secured its wealth from fishing - and eat at welcoming Chinese or Italian places. Cheers, Vino Rosso

Alesund is a great place and w had a great time but we regretted this boring overpriced pretension of a place.
This place reeks of "Boutique" hotel. Lots of trendy furniture but really just an overpriced, boxy holiday Inn.
The food was good- though we were squeezed in among cruise ship folks, and it was comfortable but not that quiet and no view to speak of. Again, it was convenient and we certainly enjoyed our stay but saw other, better places for less once we were there. Oh- and in spite of what they say- there is no parking. Parking is in a nearby very expensive public parking lot. We were there with Norwegian friends and they were embarrassed by the pretension of the place. Oh- and did I mention... "trendy” included some huge backlit pictures of female models covered in various forms of fish staring at us from the walls of the restaurant area. I like to write good reviews but this time- it is just not possible,
