We stayed here on our way from Oslo to Stockholm. In this hotel they really have thought of everything, they even have an ironing room. The furnuture is not new, but it beats the big impersonal hotels, we thought it was cosy. Parking is free and breakfast was one of the best I ever had! With a special corner for... More

Last May we went on a car trip from Oslo to the Baltic sea, and had to stop on the Swedish side to cut the long drive in two. I tried to find a hotel that was situated close to E 18, so we didn't have to vaste a lot of time to fumble around in a town to find... More

Not only to sleep but chilling out with many relaxing activities (sauna, gym, swimming pool during summer, etc...) All at the ground floor. Very clean and well designed. Alone or with the family. A must...

I visited Karlstad for business and only needed a place to sleep. The hotel looks a bit old fashioned, like as if used to be a dance palace in the 80's. However, I have food allergies and the staff was REALLY helpful and service minded, they even re-planned their dinner buffet after my requests, so I could eat almost everything.... More

My 4 day stay between Christmas and New Year did not include a swim in the frozen(!) outdoor pool, naturally!. All the main services function satisfactory, and the breakfast buffet is great, with a selection of salmon, picked herring and other fishy items added. There is a good GYM and TV and internet services. My main complaint is the single... More

The hotel is situated about 6 km from the central station and about the same distance from the university campus. When I booked the hotel (over 110 Euros/night) I was under the impression that I would receive a king size bed; instead I got 2 single beds in my room. At the reception they wanted to charge me despite me... More

Stayed there one night last summer. The hotel seemed a little old and worn out. Hotel has an outdoor pool. Remember to order a room facing away from this if you want to sleep in. Great service and good value for the money. Hotel is located way outside Karlstad city.

We stopped here on our way to Oslo, and it was a great decission. Close to the highway but with no noise at all during the night. Given the prices in the country, it was quite cheap. Really good breakfast, big rooms, good WiFi, and a swimming pool to cool off. Highly recommended

This hotel has a very cozy atmosphere, very friendly staff, convenient location with a car and a great little pool for those hot days! We stayed here two nights with two small children, driving in from Norway. The hotel room was what you would expect. Not the most modern, but very clean and cozy. There is no air conditioning, and...

We were just stopping by for one night and thought the hotel provided good value. We had a car, which made getting to the hotel easy as it is slightly out of town, convenient for us as near the highway. We didn't really get a chance to test out the facilities, but the breakfast provided was very good.
