8.4.Very Good.
  • 6.0.Good

    Rooms are very small, no reception to help solve problems, parking too far away. Were unable to text us room entry code to get in (only use European phone numbers). Staff were helpful, breakfast was good, rooms were clean.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Calling the Banken a hotel is a bit of a stretch, at least if you're accustomed to the kinds of services hotels typically offer--like a check-in desk, or someone actually on-site who can help with things that come up. I'm happy to say that the room was great and the location was too, but our experience was very difficult. They didn't have our reservation, it took three phone calls to get someone on the line, and an hour to finally get into our room. To be fair, I don't know if the lost reservation was Banken's fault or's fault, but when it takes an hour to resolve, something's wrong on both sides. By the way, we got the suite, which was great on paper, and we did like the room, but the bed is in a second-floor loft, and the bathroom was on the main floor, which made for treacherous middle-of-the night travel on a somewhat slippery winding staircase in the dark. Cool room, though, if you don't mind that.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Tiny room and certainly not a 4-star!

    Extremely tiny room. My bathroom basin was like the size of a breakfast bowl! No room to move. Absolutely no space for anything! This is certainly not a 4-star hotel!

    Never stay here!!

    Not worth the money. I don’t know how they got a very high rating. Ugly rooms and very small.

    Self Serve Hotel

    Pretty quiet on a rainy Sunday night. The pizza place around the corner was good. Room was good and breakfast was pretty solid. I'd stay again.

    A problem with a mishandled reservation was pleasantly handled and we enjoyed our stay. Breakfast buffet was fresh and varied.

    Nice place, bit quirky

    The hotel will send you a text with a code which you will need to enter the hotel itself and then your room. It’s a bit of a boutique hotel. Rooms are an ok size, bathrooms are fine. I don’t like the combined shampoo/ soap toiletries. Everything was fine, the housekeeper had missed a huge cobweb though in my room which was a bit of a shame. Should my travels take me back to Haugesund then I may stay there again as it’s in a good location and I like its quirkiness

    Self check in. Mobile phone important!

    You need to be careful to put your active mobile phone number when you book as it turns out they text you the code to access the hotel and the room. Theres no reception after 8pm so it is important otherwise you’ll get locked out! Great hotel with lovely bed otherwise, no complaints.
