The outer walls of Hotel Brosundet extends directly into the waters of Brosundet, Ålesund’s true town centre.
Hotel Brosundet offers a different experience. As every room has been individually created, so is our service. Room 47 at Hotel Brosundet is beautiful Molja Lighthouse. 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.
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.
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, we have done our utmost to preserve the best of its qualities. Brosundet is the waterway at the heart of Ålesund.
