Brosundet Hotel Alesund
With its laid-back ambiance and tranquil setting, it’s not hard to see why they call it “a place to dream”. Set on the shoreline of the Alesund Strait, this old former warehouse captures the imagination with its quaint Art Nouveau simplicity and rustic chic, yet the real pull has to be the stunning ocean panoramas from the 3rd and 4th floors.
Featuring exposed oak beams and traditional wooden boards, Hotel Brosundet’s 47 rooms and suites exude a cozy appeal, whilst staying true to the contemporary theme found throughout the hotel. Rooms range from intimate twin rooms to spacious doubles, yet all benefit from unique touches that make each a sanctuary in its own right. Snuggle down beneath your duvet and watch the sunset over turbulent waves, or set up shop at your dedicated workstation to take advantage of the free Wi-Fi for emails and networking – at Hotel Brosundet, guests holiday at their own pace.
Alesund is over 350 miles from Oslo, tucked beneath the soaring snow-capped Alps on the North coast of Norway, however, there are ample opportunities for excitement, sightseeing and adventure. Just a stone’s throw from the hotel sits the Atlantic Sea Park; one of the largest aquariums in Scandinavia, and a chance to sea native marine life in their natural habitat. Discover the fabulous boutiques and gift shops dotted along the pedestrian Gagata, not forgetting to stop off at Vinmonopolet to stock up on a few specialty beers and wines. Finally, head back to savour the catch of the day at Restaurant Maki, Hotel Brosundet’s award-winning seafood restaurant. With an evolving menu that includes beer-soaked mussels and wild salmon, there’s sure to be something to whet your appetite!
