“Norway on business”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2012

In November 2011 I was in Norway on business. It was my first visit to Alesund and my distributor booked the room for me for my 3 night stay. Don't think I could have done better in Alesund.

Staff were very friendly, nice lobby with comfortable sofa's, TV etc. Drinks can be ordered from bar at reception. Like my red wine and was very competiitvely priced (for Norway). Had a single room with balcony over the water. Next time will go for a double as I don't like single beds, even when on my own, but otherwise clean, modern and everything I need.

Breakfast was fine, more than enough for everyone's tast. Dinner is included, which is something I don't often come ac ross and I travel a lot. Was out for dinner two nights, but went with this option one night. Pretty basic, but does the job, if tired and in need of an early night.

Location cannot be better, splapbang in the middle of Alesund, Everything you need within a 5 - 10 minute walk, Even Dirty Nelly's and Irish pub, one minute away. Good place for a Guinness on a cold November night.

Will not stay anywhere else when I return. If they are full, will change my dates.

Room Tip: Go for water facing!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2012

Four wonderful days in Aalesund (with a couple of tours around) and the nice feeling to come back to this hotel and find a so quiet, comfortable and relaxing room, with a magnificent view over the main channel. Great pleasure in having a cup of coffee and some waffels at the restaurant (actually free in the afternoon! - which is not bad) at just few metres from the sea... we were here in August but I can't imagine how gorgeous it should be in winter... And when you go outside the Jugendstil buildings are just in front of you. The buffet dinner is also interesting (nothing special but of good quality, if you like plain norwegian food you will find it), but try to go there at the opening so you can enjoy the highest choice.
The staff was also very kind and ready to help for any advice or suggestion.

Room Tip: If possible ask for those over the main channel at the 4th floor.

Due to poor weather, my flight was late into Ålesund. I was just missing the free evening buffet, but at checkin which was prompt and friendly, I was told that some food would still be available despite being late. Great service !

Got upgraded to a large room with sofa area. Room was great and in good condition facing seaside.

My only remark was the TV set not being flat screen. This should be standard in any hotel !

WIFI was free and being both fast and reliable.

Breakfast was standard Choice fully suiting my needs.

All in all a great stay and I would definetely come back again.

Room Tip: Ask for a seaside room

I'm always trying to use this hotel when staying in Ålesund. It is in the center of the city, close to the water and they also have a free evening meal from 18:00 to 21:00. It is almost like a breakfast with one warm dish. Very ok.
The rooms are ok and service is great.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms against the sea, then you'll see down to the boats. vEry nice view of town.

Hotel is on a splendid location at the harbour.
We had a beautiful and spacious room at the streetside but there was some noise from a bar opposite the hotel, especially during the week-end. Good breakfast and light but tasty buffet in the evening is included in roomrate.
Parking (paid but not expensive) nearby.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the harbour.
