Breakfast and the view from the room
The experience at Scandic was pretty disappointing for us, considering the very high price (our term of comparison were the other 10 hotels we reserved across Norway during our trip). With the exception of the breakfast, which offers a wide range of food, and a nice view of the sea, there are quite a few remarks to make: our room was stinky and we found dust on the furniture; blankets were old and with some holes; the provision of personal care products is very scarce (only soap and shampoo, not even some cream or a shower cap); the toilet flush would not stop running and the hairdryer was very old and sticky. Poor overall management of the interiors of the building (various stains on the carpets etc.).
Since we changed the number of people to stay from four to two for our personal reasons, the reception staff kindly offered us to change originally booked family room to the twin room on the top floor with a balcony and the nice harbour view. We were very satisfied with the room because it was spacious and quiet, and had many windows facing different direction. Also, even in a busy season, the reception staff kindly accepted our request of one-hour extension of check-out time.
The room amenity and facility were below the normal standard of this hotel class. For instance, there were even no glass cups in a washroom but plastic cups, and one of the cups had crack and water was leaking.

Very close to the scenic harbour
Great location walking distance to important places around. Alesund is amazingly beautiful.
There was lack of feeling that we are welcome. In most cases little things can make you happy or spoil your staying at hotel. We asked number of times for kettle to brew our tea in the room but no success until Andrea and Patricia actioned and found one. I know it sounds like nothing important but it was small ask anyway. We thank to Andrea an Patricia we finally felt someone care. We shortened our stay from 3 to 2 nights. Furthermore we being charged double for parking car in the hotel garage. Alesund is beautiful place but we won’t rush back to Scandic hotel if we visit again.
Stay in the heart of beautiful Alesund, right by the water, with views over the harbour and fantastic nature. Ideal for anyone wanting to explore the town’s attractions.
