“Great view and good location”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

The breakfast is excellent. A lot of healthy food, fruits, and everything you need to have a good beginning on the day.
Friendly and helpful staff. The hotel and the rooms are old, not too pleased with the shower. Very good bed, and it was easy to get a good nights sleep.
Walking distance to shops, the bridges and viewing points.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony and sea view

Dear guest.

First of all, we would like to thank you for taking the time to write a review after your stay at Rica Maritim Hotel.

You are correct, some of our rooms are older then others. We recently renovated one floor in one wing and there is more to come. It would have been mostly helpful for us if you said what you didn't like with the shower -in that way we could have looked into it.

Nice to read that you had a good night sleep. We use the best quality in beds and yes, they are very comfortable. We are proud of our breakfast - and our staff - so very nice to hear you experienced the quality we have at our hotel.

Looking forward to welcome you back to Rica Maritim Hotel.

Best Regards,

Astrid Helen Ove

The hotel is very well maintained and rooms look quite new. Very comfortable bed with extra pillows available ;) Big flat screen tv, balcony with harbor view (in some rooms), ironing facilities + coffee/tea in the room. Bathroom with the shower is also good and has all you need. Heated floor is a plus.
Great variety for breakfast! Different types of warm food, bred, fruits, fresh fruit juices, desserts. Just remember it finishes at 10:00 on weekdays.
The hotel also offers nice bar and conference facilities.
You will enjoy staying there! Ideal for short business trip.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with harbour view.

We were staying at the hotel for a conference. We were the only couple attending the conference (my partner was the organiser, and i was the event photographer) and the hotel put us into a beautiful suite they have. It was very chic! I believe i counted 11 places to sit in one room. But even if you do not get a suite. This hotel is a great location for conferences, weddings and so on. There are many restaurants on site, the staff is all very friendly and multilingual. Would definitely recommend it to people!

Large hotell with good staf. Clean bathroom and very good bed. A bit busy during lunch, but the food was good. Nice place near the harbor, short walk to shops. From Stavanger you can tke the boat, and its a short walk to the hotel.

Hotel ideally located in the centre of Haugesund right next to the water. Exceptional views from the different bars and restaurants and, if sun shines, from the spacey terrace.
Breakfast is great: large choices of continental and english breakfast, fresh fruits and friendly staff.
However the room we stayed was unfortunately quite old and run down. OK there was a flat screen TV and a mini-bar but the bathroom tiles were partly broken and it had a certain vintage feeling that spoiled the fun a bit.
The water front bar area is only 2 min walk away and the city centre of Haugesund is not much further. So the hotel is a great basis for exploring the town and the surroundings.

I was here to attend the yearly safety at sea conference by the Norwegian maritime authority, hence the hotel is just part of the conference package. The rooms lack of maintenance is evident but they're friendly and helpful staff just gave me a new and bigger room with sea view since the main lights in my first room was out of order. Wifi is working all over. The food is more than satisfactory and the placing of the hotel is just in the town center so the overall satisfaction is very good.

Room Tip: ask for a newer room and the best ones with balcony are at the seafront

The hotel room, business, could have been marvelous. A lovely bathroom with a shower that I simply loved. Not eco friendly, but I will forgive them. A huge king bed, largest I have seen in any hotel. Lovely mattress, but horrible pillow and mediocre duvet. A balcony facing the fjord, unfortunately dirty and in need of some paint. The rest of the room was worn down. But with a breakfast like they served I am almost willing to forgive everything. Wow. Try it.
