Each individual room has been designed with respect for the building’s past, yet in line with contemporary design and comfort.
The hotel is placed in beautiful Norwegian national romantic scenery. The list of prominent guests is a long one. Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany was a frequent guest in Balestrand. Royalty, emperors, presidents, prime ministers, film stars and artists from many countries can be found on the guest list.
Hotel Brosundet offers a different experience. As an intimate, family owned hotel the watchful hosts will take care of every single guest. They believe in creating experiences satisfying all senses - paying attention to what is seen, heard, smelled, tasted and felt. From the delicate interior design, stunning artwork, antique beams to fresh local seafood all in company with the locals which has Hotel Brosundet as one of their favorite spots in town. Their passion is to preserve the buildings as they originally were warehouses and significant to the fishery in small town Ålesund. As soon as you enter the hotel you will find inspirational design combined with an authentic story to tell. The outer walls of the hotel extend directly into the waters of Brosundet, Ålesund's true town center.
The restaurant Apotekergata No.5 will round off your stay: the old boathouse is once again taking in fresh seafood, just as it did 100 years ago. The circle is complete. These days, however, the fish isn’t sent on anywhere else but is transformed into the most delicious dishes by Apotekergata No.5’s gifted chefs.
