Scandic Haugesund opened in 2010 and is located in the centre of Haugesund and only two blocks from the main street/pedestrian zone. The reception doubles as a bar, which is really annoying when you would like to check in. We arrived late after a long day working. I just wanted to get to the room quickly. There was only one guy working in the reception/bar and he was too busy selling beer. We had to wait quite a long to get our rooms. I was not very impressed.

The décor throughout the hotel is in a minimalist style. The breakfast restaurant is very simple and totally lacked atmosphere. The breakfast buffet was plain, with a few hot choices (which were not hot). One hour before breakfast ended they were out of a lot of things.

The room was not very big, but had a wonderful bed. The wooden floor made the room look clean. It was a desk and an electronic safe there. The room was also equipped with an iron and an ironing board, a big flat screen TV and free WI-FI. There was no mini bar and no room service. What ever you might wish of cold drinks, snacks and toiletries, it can all be bought in the small shop in the reception. I wish there had been tea/coffee making facilities in the room. The window could only opened a couple of inches. Not enough to get fresh air into the room.

The bathroom was small, but modern with white tiles. There were no amenities there. Toothpaste, lotion, shampoo etc can be bought in the reception for $5 each. The cleanliness was not the best. There were toothpaste stains on the faucet and mirror, and stains on the towels. The washbasin was so low, I had to double over to wash my hands. The bathroom door was made of frosted glass, which I don´t like. It doesn´t give you much privacy.

The Scandic hotel chain is very much into separating rubbish. This is very obvious when you see the rubbish bin. It has three compartments, for paper, food and everything else you can´t define.

In the basement there is a well equipped fitness room.

Scandic is considered a cheaper hotel chain, so I guess you get what you pay for. Having said this, I have stayed at other Scandic hotels, which I have been happy with. In Haugesund there are other much better hotels, so look elsewhere for accommodation.
