Scandic Haugesund4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Looks very acceptable. Certainly there are 'cultural differences' at bedtime, with bed linens turned down in such a way that guests have to, in practice make their own bed. Shower units are different, and take a little getting used to. Breakfast servers, (equipment) are a challenge when serving yourself breakfast, and by virtue of this may not be considered sanitary. The hotel had charged my credit card for the stay, due to 'new receptionist', even though the room had been prepaid. (This was refunded after about three days and my complaint) Obviously when comparing with US hotels of identical rating, this hotel lacked the standards normally found in the US. (This is possibly a poor comparison as US hotels at this level are usually of a higher standard) Overall, my stay was acceptable. Cultural differences and VERY high costs where a shock. I would recommend the hotel, but only because the cultural and economic differences are common to the country, and I cannot compare it to other hotel units in Norway.
