Well positioned in Alesund, within walking distance of the main attractions and lots of good restaurants/bars. The reception staff were all very welcoming and, as you come to expect with Norway, they all spoke fantastic English. They were very helpful in advising places to visit, even outside of the immediate area. We drove to Gerainger on one day, to Giske and Godoya (a good walk up hill) on another, and to Orsta on the third, plus walked up the 418 steps in town to the main viewing point. Not everything was open as the summer season has yet to get underway but the weather was good so we could spend all the time outdoors. The ferries between islands run very frequently (and reasonably priced) so you can get around very easily and quickly.
Very relaxed and reasonably priced, this is Norway after all. It's close to the airport and the airport bus stops right outside for easy transfers to Alesund and the airport.
Wifi wasn't the quickest but that's all I can fault this hotel for. The room was spotless so a 10/10 for cleanliness.

The Best Western Hotell Baronen was a good value for the price. I stayed 3 nights in a single room on the 3rd floor. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. There was a good seating area and the storage was sufficient. The bathroom was clean snd well lit. Best of all the room wad quiet. I slept with my window open and after 11pm there wasn't any noise. The staff at reception, the cleaners and the breakfast buffet manager were all friendly and helpful. Everyone assisted me with bus schedules and nearby points of interest. The breakfast buffet was kept stocked and their were plenty of items to choose from, both hot and cold. Finally, I really appreciated the free coffee and waffles in the lobby.
