Before we went to Haugesund I had booked us a room for the two nights at a hotel I fond online. It had good reviews and the price was reasonable so I was quite happy. When our room was ready around 12:00 the day we were checking in, I received a code on my phone that would open the door our whole stay.
The hotel was called Banken hotel meaning The Bank Hotel. The name comes from the fact that this used to be a bank from 1919 up till 1985. After that it has been among other things a night club. In 2011 it opened as a hotel. It can be found in the middle of the town center and it a good hotel to stay in when visiting Haugesund.
Next to our hotel there was an Irish Viking bar. We went in for a pint and it is the only Irish pub I’ve ever been to that had swords on the walls. I found the one that seem to be missing to be the most worrying.
Hope the week is treating you all well.
