Top ChoiceLodging in ÅlesundHotel Brosundet
Right on the waterfront and designed by superstar architects Snøhetta, this former warehouse is one of Norway's most charming hotels. Wonderful old beams and exposed brick walls are combined with contemporary comfort and style. Bedroom furnishings are of white oak, bathrooms are set behind smoky glass walls and beds are draped with brown velvet and sheepskins. They have also taken over another nearby hotel, Hotel Bryggen, to provide extra space. Breakfast is served in the elegant, port-side Maki restaurant. If simple luxury is not enough, book 'room' 47 – which is located in the Molja lighthouse on the end of the quay, the ultimate harbour getaway! They'll even deliver breakfast to your door.
