“Ironman Trip”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Stayed at Hotel Maritim for five days for a 70.3 Iroman event, booked through UK event organiser. Room size was large enough to allow for bike to be packed and unpacked with reasonable ease. Nice seating area with good TV and Wifi all over hotel, so made the hours pass easier. Shower excellent, food good with early brekfast on event day. Bed nice and firm, black out curtains and no noise. Great location with views over the Quayside and 100yds from the finish line. Tourist information in hotel ( & information centre ) could be better, as there are some good run/walk routes nearby that are un advertised. Food and especially wine not cheap, but then would stay here again.

Room Tip: Suspect we got a decent room as we booked thorugh Ironman organisers, as they may get preferential r...

Alright, the hotel has a perfect location, the employees gives alright service AND it's affordable. We paid 850 kroner i the middle of the tourist season, in July 2013. The rooms are quite small and seems kind of old, but some accessories gives you a better impression. It's a typical 4 star hotel, and so it says on the diploma in the lobby, signed by Tripadvisors excecutives.

My only problem is HUGE and I will never stay there again before this is fixed. When you go to the toilet, you want to be alone. Or are you an exhibitionist? You see, the door to the toilet is made of glass. Yes, it is frosted, so you can't look through it, but it has a big gap between the door and the frame, so you can have a peek into the bathroom. Not even for a single room I would find this alright, because I don't find it hygenic. I had a a double superior room with my wife. I'm not shy, but I want peace and privacy going to the toilet/bathroom. Especially since both the room and the toilet is very small and you can hear all noises. Crap!

Room Tip: ASK of a room without glass door to the bathroom.

After a long day travelling we came across this hotel on the quay side in Hausgesund. They have parking, but it's also public and small, so we were lucky to get a place. We felt the room price (with breakfast) to be reasonable. Free Wifi worked well. Not a lot of noise isolation between rooms, so if you have a noisy neighbour - good luck. Front-desk staff were excellent and the breakfast was quite ok.

Room Tip: Get a quieter room at the end of the corridor ?

if in haugesund this is the place to put your body. rooms are splendid, little small but quite nice. clean, proper good order and very friendly services. hotell is a littl bit old and worn here and there but the rooms were topclass. watch out for the elevator! the doors closes very fast so keep arms and legs inside or outside. much better than most elevators. Breakfast had plentiful and vast dishes to choose from and a lot of warm and fresh baked breads. fresh fruits and all you need. good gym too. if you order waterfront rooms you will have great view but maybe some noicy in the summer due to all people walking around. all in all, it´s recommendable

Stayed here on a businesstrip fro two day's in January 13.

I have been a the hotel before so this time i Booked a slightly larger room than the standard, which was a good investment as I had to work a lot while at the Hotel.

Haugesund is not the center of the world, so room are normally less expensive here than on larger cities in Norway.

Bed are very nice and comfortable, and even in the standard room the Bathroom is absolutely OK.

Breakfast was the normal high Norwegian standard, and in the evening we had dinner in the Hotel restaurant "Naustet" This is not cheap, but you really should try this restaurant, it has a high standard of food, at normal (high) prices in Norway, but once you enter from the modern style hotel in to the "Naustet" restaurant you will be suppriced.

I you want to go out for dinner, just walk some 200 meter to the right, along the sea, and you'll find plenty of restaurants, in all pricecategories

Room Tip: If you have to possibility, go for the room on the "Seaside" of the hotel
