Scandic Scandinavie

Hotel in Ålesund

Ålesund's oldest hotel, the first constructed after the 1904 fire, has beautiful Jugendstil bones indeed, and since being taken over by the Scandic chain, it's been given a much-needed refresh. Through the lovely art-nouveau doorway, there's a bright lobby filled with modern art and, upstairs, lots of clean-lined rooms in whites, beiges and greys. There's private parking underground.
