Hotel Brosundet offers a different experience - located by the waterway, at the heart of Ålesund. As every room has been individually created, so is their service. The outer walls of Hotel Brosundet extends directly into the waters of Brosundet, Ålesund's true town centre. Room 47 at Hotel Brosundet is beautiful Molja Lighthouse.

Architectural accommodation

The interior of Hotel Brosundet was designed by Snøhetta. This renowned architectural firm also designed The Norwegian Opera and Ballet in Oslo, and the Ground Zero Pavilion in New York.

Just as in the past, when the building was originally a warehouse, you can watch fishing vessels pass by the hotel window on their way to unload the catch of the day. Hotel Brosundet is one of ten listed Art Nouveau buildings in Ålesund.

Art Nouveau in Ålesund

Ålesund is renowned for the world's most harmonious concentration of Art Nouveau buildings. After the fire of 1904 reduced 850 buildings to ashes, leaving ten thousand homeless, the city was rebuilt in just three years. The architecture is less embellished than what you find on the continent, but lift your eyes as you wander the town's meandering streets and you will see beautiful details, many of them inspired by Viking designs.

Hotel Brosundet is proud to be a part of that heritage; Apokergata 5 was once a packinghouse for Ålesund's vibrant klipfish trade. Today it is a listed building, and during our refurbishing, they have done their utmost to preserve the best of its qualities.

The renowned seafood restaurant

Restaurant MAKI at Hotel Brosundet is one of Norway's most renowned seafood restaurants. Maki's signature eight-dish tasting menu is based on the catch of the day. The atmosphere is elegant yet warm, with white linen tablecloths and large candles on each table. Through the arched windows, you can watch boats come and go, and sometimes see seals frolic in the water. One of the delights is being able to watch the chefs concocting fascinating dishes. The sight sounds and smells are sure to entice.
