“Nice place at the harbor.”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Large hotell with good staf. Clean bathroom and very good bed. A bit busy during lunch, but the food was good. Nice place near the harbor, short walk to shops. From Stavanger you can tke the boat, and its a short walk to the hotel.

Hotel ideally located in the centre of Haugesund right next to the water. Exceptional views from the different bars and restaurants and, if sun shines, from the spacey terrace.
Breakfast is great: large choices of continental and english breakfast, fresh fruits and friendly staff.
However the room we stayed was unfortunately quite old and run down. OK there was a flat screen TV and a mini-bar but the bathroom tiles were partly broken and it had a certain vintage feeling that spoiled the fun a bit.
The water front bar area is only 2 min walk away and the city centre of Haugesund is not much further. So the hotel is a great basis for exploring the town and the surroundings.

I was here to attend the yearly safety at sea conference by the Norwegian maritime authority, hence the hotel is just part of the conference package. The rooms lack of maintenance is evident but they're friendly and helpful staff just gave me a new and bigger room with sea view since the main lights in my first room was out of order. Wifi is working all over. The food is more than satisfactory and the placing of the hotel is just in the town center so the overall satisfaction is very good.

Room Tip: ask for a newer room and the best ones with balcony are at the seafront

The hotel room, business, could have been marvelous. A lovely bathroom with a shower that I simply loved. Not eco friendly, but I will forgive them. A huge king bed, largest I have seen in any hotel. Lovely mattress, but horrible pillow and mediocre duvet. A balcony facing the fjord, unfortunately dirty and in need of some paint. The rest of the room was worn down. But with a breakfast like they served I am almost willing to forgive everything. Wow. Try it.

I stay at the Rica Maritim every year, and the experience very much varies with the rooms I get. Staying there during the film festival in august, the hotel is fully booked so it's not easy to always the a room (preferably a new one) overlooking the strait in front of the hotel. Other rooms can be from OK to not very pleasant at all, with views directly into a wall, and a feeling the air in the room is really stuffy.
However, my comment this time is about the hotel gym. In short, as more and more guests are interested to keep up their gym routine while traveling, the hotel HAS to shape up as well. The equipment, or lack of such, is laughable at such a large hotel. And it's mostly funny when there's a barbell - but the weights next to it don't with on it. Funny, but useless....

Room Tip: Get a new room with a terrace overlooking the sea - they are very good, while the rooms facing inwar...

I stayed in this hotel for a couple of nights during a business trip to Haugesund.
The location is right by the water and there is an outdoor seating area where you can enjoy a glass of wine if the weather permits. I had lunch in the coffee shop that belongs to the hotel, but did not try the other on site restaurants as there were several other restaurants within walking distance. The breakfast was probably one of the best breakfasts I have seen in Norway with a lot of options. The room I got was called a superior room, but it was really small, so there was nothing superior about it. On the plus side there was a nice little private balcony though. Wifi was free and easy to use. I would probably stay here again mainly because of the location.

Really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It right on a waterway in the center of town and if were to visit you would feel as if this is the place to be. Norwegians are generally very friendly people and even at this hotel the staff always had a smile for you. Windows open which for me is critcal for anywhere as the climate controls in most hotel rooms don't do it for me. Haugesund is a very sleepy town but if you do visit there are lots of ferries around for visiting the other islands. The bar is nice and food good.
