The hotel is a great location, close to the train station. Rooms are great, and meals, like everyone Clarion we've been in in Sweden so far, are excellent. A great value. The staff couldn't be friendlier.

We spent two nights here, from 1st to 3rd June 2015. The hotel is situated in the pedestrian zone of the city centre. On arrival we could park the car at some 100 m from the hotel and went there on foot. The very friendly and helpful receptionist informed us that they had places in the underground car park, which...

Thank you so much for sharing your opinion about us! We are all very happy you enjoyed your stay in Växjö. You are right about many glassworks have closed the past years, however, the area still designs and crafts glass products of good quality. In some places they even let you try to craft your own pieces. Best regards on... More

Me and a colleague needed a place to stay for the night. We got great help from the night manager/ staff when we arrive. We did not have anything booked and he was extremely helpful to us on arrival. Bonus is the night buffet at the hotel. Would come here again.

Stayed here a couple of times, always been getting good service and good rooms. If I could mention something to be improved: The buffet restaurant is quite small and crouded at dinner-time, would have been better to use the larger breakfast restaurant for evening buffet as well.

We chose this hotel because it was #1 on Tripadvisor and parking. It turned out to be a very good choice. The staff was very helpful. The free buffet in the evening was very much appreciated. Rooms were small but decent. Sleep quality was good. Breakfast was also satisfactory.

I travel frequently for work and this is probably my best hotel so far. The material standard is not high in the sense of a classic luxury hotel. I would describe it as premium but not luxury. Where it really shines is hos everything just works. I never wished something would havet worked differently, it was all very smooth. No... More

When you arrive the hotel is so warm and inviting. They have cookies/ coffee machine in the lobby; and late night snacks. They attend to your every need. The breakfast and dinner are delicious. The rooms are clean, quite and have everything you will need. Cant think of anything to complain about.

This hotel has a good location in the city center of Växjö, friendly staff, parking garage available. And with dinner buffé included (and free afternoon coffee or tea) makes this hotel really attractive.

We didn't enjoy our stay at Clarion Collection Hotel Cardinal, because our attic room was tiny, shabbily furnished and hot like hell. There was no air conditioning, and the room didn't cool down at night.
