Recent guest reviews

Stayed in the hotel for a couple of months for work, all staff are friendly, helpful and very pleasant. The rooms are clean spacious and tidy, the hotel is well situated close to all local amenities so if you don't fancy eating in the hotel or fancy a night out it is only a short walk to the local restaurants and bars.

Spent a couple of months staying at this hotel, all the staff are extremely friendly, pleasant and helpful, the rooms are comfortable, spacious and very clean. Tha hotel is close to all amenities so if you don't fancy eating in the hotel it is only a short walk to a selection of excellent resturants

Nice room and friendly staff. More cinnamonrolls for breakfast! Convenient in the middle of Haugesund, able to walk to restaurants. Parking could be better and free of charge. Activity room for kids would be appreciated.

Effective check inn with friendly staff. The rooms are great, and this is the hotell I always stay at in Haugesund - and have never been disappointed. The training room is a bit small - but functional. The breakfast includes all basics for a good breakfast

Nice and clean and very nice people very good breakfars au usual on Scandic hotell nice ans quiet room , the hotell its in the senter of Haugesund ,short way to all conserts at silda jazz and other consert and theaters

I have stayed here since it first opened and its a great hotel. Staff are great and always a nice welcome everytime i stay.. Dog friendly... as well... only 5 minutes walk to the night life and bars. Staff always go out their way to help... nice food as well.

The room was clean with a comfortable bed. Breakfast could have been better. Would have been nice if there was buns and pancakes. The hotel layed in the middle of the town, within walking distance to restaurants and shops.

I had a very pleasant experience here. This was my first visit to Haugesund & when I arrived at the bus station & found a taxi, I really didn't know the difference between the Scandic Haugesund & its sister hotel, the Scandic Maritim; the latter is much larger & more glamorous and it's also on the Brygge, but that means it's also closer to the noise of the wharf, which is the area where people in Haugesund socialize in the evening. After getting to know the city over the course of 4 days, I'm actually thinking that staying in Kirkegata was a good thing; it's only a 5-minute walk down to the Brygge, but it's removed from the noise & the activity of the wharf. This hotel's restaurant is closed in the summer & just used as a breakfast room in the morning, but that's fine, as there are a bunch of restaurants on the Brygge just a few minutes away. There's also a full-service supermarket on the same street (Kirkegata) less than two blocks away, which is a real resource if you're trying to save money by not dining out. The tourist Information Office in Haugesund & one of the main city bus stops are both two blocks south on Kirkegata (kitty korner from the supermarket), so this hotel could hardly be more conveniently situated. The service at this hotel was quite good & I had generally good experience with a succession of front desk staff (all women, all blonde); I also had a good experience with the maids, most of whom were Asian, somewhat surprisingly (my maid was Filipino and very friendly as well as efficient). My room was really nice, though I would have preferred to pay less for a smaller one, but the economy-size rooms were all booked. The bathroom isn't large but is really nice, with a great shower & sink & good mirrors. My room faced a building across the street on the north side of the building, and that street is basically an alley, with the other building so close that I had to close the curtains when I wasn't fully dressed. The breakfast is quite good. The only unpleasant experience I had wasn't really the fault of the hotel; they have two bicycles in the entrance of the lobby that one can use without charge; I tried the larger one first (the women's bike), but the seat was too high & I wrenched my wrists trying to ride it; I then brought it back to the hotel & tried the other one (the men's bike), which had a lower seat & was suited to my height; I used it to cycle to a historic site in town, and it was great for that. If I stayed at this hotel again, I would try to get a room facing the main street (Kirkegata), which is much wider. One doesn't have many choices of hotel in this city; there are only half a dozen hotels in Haugesund, since it's off the beaten path; even though it's located midway between Bergen & Stavanger, most tourists skip Haugesund altogether; and interestingly enough, most of the guests in this hotel appeared to be Norwegian or otherwise Scandinavian. If I were to stay in Haugesund again, I might try the Scandic Maritim, but I'd also be perfectly content to stay at the Scandic Haugesund again; it was one of the nicest hotels I stayed in during my two weeks in Norway, and by the standards of this exceptionally expensive country, the room rates are reasonable.

First time at this hotel. Nice staff. Nice and clean room. Our room was quiet and located in the 6th floor with view over Town and the sea. God selection of breakfast. Only drawback was that the restaurant was closed during the summertime. Location is near several god restaurants. We drove by car and there was a public parking downstairs. Nok 125 per Day. We will be back on the first occasion.

Pros: Nice people working there. Good sevice. Very clean and updated hotel. Cons: Have to pay for parking. A bit noisy area. Dissappointing breakfast. Personally I thought the bed was a bit too hard but we all prefer differently I guess. Overall I thought it was an ok hotel.
