Hurtigruten - "De mooiste boottocht ter wereld"
Hotel Union is a family-run hotel that is situated on a hill just above the centre of the tourist village of Geiranger, with a fantastic view of the fjords and mountains. The current hosts are the 3rd and 4th generation of the Melva family - the hotel has been in the family since 1897.
Hotel Union has 197 rooms in several categories, from well-equipped standard rooms to luxury suites. The hotel is ideal for courses and conferences and has a separate congress centre that was completed in the summer of 1997. The congress centre is fully equipped with ultra-modern AV and technical equipment.
The hotel has its own fitness/relax centre where you can enjoy such facilities as indoor and outdoor swimming pools, Turkish baths, sauna, outdoor massage pool and solarium.
The garden that surrounds the hotel has a separate rooftop garden on top of the conference centre. The roof garden has its own dance area, barbecue area and outdoor swimming pool. Also nearby are minigolf and play areas for children. The garden also contains Mollaløa, a 'typical Sunnmøre' reception/banqueting room. In the rustic Mollaløa, we serve traditional food according to our own menu. The rooms can accommodate up to 50 persons. If desired, local musicians or historians can contribute to the event. If you wish, a local historian can lead you through the dramatic history of Geiranger, told with a humorous slant combined with tastings of the local 'moonshine'.
Hotel Union also has its own revue show and show arena, a themed bar with an interior inspired by the hotel itself and Geiranger's transport history.
The hotel provides transport for individuals and groups from the quayside at Geiranger. The hotel can also arrange transport to Ålesund airport at Vigra if required.
