When hoteliers Knut and Line Flakk wanted a luminous landmark for Hotel Brosundet, they procured a hundred-year lease to a lighthouse owned by the City of Ålesund. Molja Lighthouse stands at the end of a jetty, a five-minute walk from our other 46 rooms in Apotekergata 5.
Perhaps no other European hotel room has been featured in more travel magazines.
Measuring only three metres across, the 150-year-old Molja Lighthouse presented a delightful challenge to our interior architect and carpenters. Downstairs they made an elegant and amazingly compact bathroom. Upstairs is a circular bedroom with a custom-fitted bed. You’ll appreciate that when you lie in bed and peer west toward Godøy Island and the Atlantic, watching the Hurtigruten coastal steamer glide by. Today, Molja’s red-and-green beacon is automated but still guides ships into sheltered waters.
Room 47 is your hideaway in Ålesund, at once rustic and modern, a very special experience to share with someone you love. It’s a thrilling bridal suite, whether the setting midsummer sun has turned sea and sky golden, or an autumn storm is sending salty sprays high into the air – hold onto your bridal gown and bow tie as you walk hand in hand out the jetty!
We’ll bring you our gourmet breakfast basket at your chosen time.
