Rica Maritim Hotel Jul 08, 2010
Rica Maritim Hotel is located by the canal in Haugesund, just one block from the main street. This hotel is the main provider of accommodation during the Norwegian Film Festival, the Jazz Festival and the Amanda show. You might laugh at a film festival in such little town, but this is serious stuff. People like Allan Alda, Roger Moore, Liv Ullman, Pierce Brosnan og Ben Kingsley have all visited the festival. And not to forget, Marilyn Monroes mother was born in here.
Rica Maritim Hotel is considered the best hotel in Haugesund. It has undergone a face lift, but the rooms are outdated decoration wise. Rooms, including bathrooms are small, but have a desk, free WI-FI, minibar and tea/coffee making facilities. There are two restaurants, Nauste being the cozier one, and a piano bar in the hotel, and a separate coffee shop (Café René) on the ground floor.
The hotel has 311 rooms and most of them are non smoking.
I have not stayed in any other hotel in Haugesund and can not say if Rica Maritim Hotel is the best hotel. It is conveniently enough, but lack the nice and warm atmosphere. Staff is nice and helpful, specially in the breakfast restaurant.
I just stayed at the Rica Maritim Hotel again. This time I was given a room (no 304) which was in a different wing than where I usualy stay. OMG, it was a completely different experience. Instead of the dark, oldfashioned rooms with carpets in the back of the hotel, rooms which are facing a parking house, I got a light and maritim looking room with a balcony facing the canal. It was also nice with the light coloured wooden floor.
If you ever stay at this hotel, make sure to ask for a room facing the canal!
