Reviewed 27 March 2015

The location of the hotel is near the city centre, and in walking distance to serveral restaurants and pubs. I was welcomed very well. The styling and rooms is average. The TV-reception was a bit lousy. There is not much to complain about, but not much to be excited about either.

Stayed here for three nights in early February. Nice and centrally located. We arrived by car and had to rely on street parking, which turned out to be easily accessible. Our room was as expected, with a minibar, a reasonably large TV screen and easily accessible and well-working wifi. Breakfast: Average. Reception: Excellent, plenty of good advice concerning restaurants and...

The hotel is conveniently located at the heart of the city centre, right by the sea/harbour where the Hurtigruten ship stops, as well as close to the main bus station. It's a tranquil street, right off the pedestrian street (main shopping street). Our rooms were clean and quiet, and the breakfast was fine. The staff was very service-minded and pleasant.

I' ve stayed in several Thon hotels in Norway and this is so far the worst of them. The room was big enough but unfortunately not very clean. The bed was really small and the room was too hot during the night. The breakfast was a disappointment with the poorest selection.

We've stayed there just for a night after late arrival of the Hurtigrouten-ship. The room was OK, a bit shabby. The people at reception were friendly but a bit tired so not concentrated at the beginning. Some kind of kerfuffle. Breakfast was OK.

Very nice hotel in a very convenient location. While in norway I didn't stay in more Thon hotels, but I think next time I'll repeat in Moré thon hotels, clean and nice rooms. We couldn't have breakfast because we left very early and they let us eat cold food from the buffet. Very good.

It seems that the quality of hotels in Norway is overall quite poor, but here we also came across a receptionist that was astoundingly incompetent and rude. She was exceptionally rude, for example being extremely annoyed by the question of where is the hotel on the city map or at what time breakfast is served, and completely incapable of answering...

The hotel has the usual problems of Norwegian hotels, no facilities, no shampoo or shower cap, no A/C and windows which cannot open properly, therefore rooms hot and stuffy. In this hotel there was an extra! Very rude receptionist, unable to give any kind of information and annoyed by questions. The location is very central but of course the town...

This very basic hotel about 1 km from the hub of Alesund. Staff lacked enthusiasm with general enquiries. Room was basic, but nothing extra supplied ie shower toiletries, tissues or extra toilet rolls not supplied. When asked for soap containers to be refilled nothing eventuated. Room was hot and stuffy, No A/c in most of these hotels so ears plugs...
