Recent guest reviews
This is not a luxury hotel, but it is pretty, the amenities are adequate and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. There was a good variety of food and drink options for breakfast. I would suggest that more coffee be brewed, however. Even with only 5 or 10 minutes left of breakfast service, many people came to have a cup of coffee unsuccessfully as we were leaving one morning. Our room was large and clean, and the beds were comfortable. The curtains could be drawn to create darkness in the room. The showers had plenty of hot water and a nice smelling shower gel. The staff offered to store our luggage while we were away on a cruise after checkout and always greeted us with a friendly smile and helpful information.
Not so much to say about the hotel. Think it's time to upgrade. Sad room and we could hear the other rooms well. The breakfast was ok and service good. But wishing for a better hotel experience, one can add 20kr and book at Scandic Parken.
We stayed here for a couple of nights on the way to Geiranger. Booked only because of the Thon brand and the good experiences we have had in staying at their other hotels. But this was a disappointment. First the Pros: 1. Good location, walkable from the airport bus terminus, restaurants and other sights. 2. Extremely friendly staff 3. Parking available close-by but at a fee 4. While they don't advertise laundry service, it is available. Check with the reception. The Cons: 1. The rooms are basic.Wooden flooring, no carpet, just a couple of beds joined together. 2. The shower is tiny 3. The lifts are really old - one of them was malfunctioning continuously. 4. Breakfast is not upto usual standards, The choice was limited and some of the food felt and tasted stale. Overall a not too great experience, perhaps because our expectations were higher. Didn't feel it was value for money.
We had a superior room, but it was nothing special at all. Just two beds pushed together that would come apart during the night. Breakfast was very Mediocre (very weak coffee etc) and my general impression of the hotel was that profit is first priority not guest comfort. Lots of the fittings in the bathroom were very cheap chrome covered plastic and kept pulling apart. If I had paid half the rate I would have thought it was closer to comparison of other hotels in Norway in terms of value.
Great location, decent breakfast and friendly staff. We booked three rooms with our friends and they were spacious with a good internet connection. And I should add the good coffee that welcome us when we enter the hotel :) I was not aware of the swimming pool :)
I was greeted by friendly staff every time I entered the hotel, who were very helpful in pointing out things to do. The room was comfortable and good value for the area. Easy walking distance to everything and right by the terminal for the Hurtigruten cruises.
I was booked into this hotel for an overnight stay,arriving by taxi from alesund airport at 23.30.At the reception I was greeted in English,given a cup of coffee and my room keycard.I had a good sleep after a long day of travel.In the morning -07.30 ,showered/dressed and went downstairs to breakfast.This was very good with a great choice.I had some musuli followed by eggs/bacon/beans/coffee.. Afterwards to reception book out and got info where to go to my next destination.
Clean room, good beds and enough space. The only hotel in Ålesund which has a swimming pool, enjoyed an hour in the swimming pool and went to town. The hotel is in the middle of the town and easy access to all important sights in Ålesund. The breakfast was really good.
The Thon Hotel in Ålesund was great for my visit. Upon our arrival we met the smart and friendly Harald at the reception desk; like all the Norwegians we spoke to his English was superb and he was very helpful throughout our stay (as were all the staff at the hotel). I stayed in a spacious single room which was very comfortable and well kept, it also had a nice (though ironic) view of the viewing platform on aksla hill. Facilities were good with a swimming pool, hot tub and sauna available to guests. The breakfast options were excellent; they had cooked stuff as well as cereal, fruit and even cake! The Thon Hotel is located near the end of a quiet street and was pretty easy to locate (with sat-nav assistance) and access. Though we had rented a car for our stay, it was nice to see that the hotel is in close proximity to a bus station and taxi pickup spot. I would highly recommend both Thon Hotel and the city of Ålesund to anyone looking to visit.
Our time in Alesund with my friend started from Thon hotel. And we will probably never regret about choosing this hotel! Just perfect quality of customer service, people there are always smiling and ready to help! Even when the swimming pool was closed, the stuff opened it for us at the day we arrived ! Breakfest are so nice, enough food for whole day ^^ Coffee and tea in unlimited number and machines are open whole day! We still so impressed after this increadible hotel ! Definately will advise it for others ! Would like to say THANKS once again for a great stuff for hep! Greeatings from Poland and Ukraine !
