Room 47 Molja Lighthouse

A lighthouse stay for 2 on a jetty at Alesund, with the benefits of hotel services + breakfast delivered each day.


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 the other 46 rooms in Apotekergata 5.
Perhaps no other European hotel room has been featured in more travel magazines.

Measuring only three meters across, the 150-year-old Molja Lighthouse presented a delightful challenge to the 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 Godøya 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 to the jetty! Your own gourmet breakfast basket will be delivered to you at your chosen time.
