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.

While visiting my girlfriend in Norway, we decided to slip over to Karlstad as a little getaway. As usual, I researched all options and settled in on Best Western Gustaf Frodding. Bottom line, this place is hard to beat. From check-in to departure, I was pleasantly surprised. The basic "economy" room was cozy, meticulously clean, and as comfortable as can... More

The hotel is not the most luxurious or fancy hotel around. It is however extremely cozy and have a warm atmosphere. The rooms are well planned and come across as clean. Beds are very comfortable and the linen smells fresh and new. The breakfast is great with a midsized buffet containing buffet standards as well as Swedish specialties. To me,... More

Me and my son stayed here for the yearly chess event Karlstad Open, which was played at the hotel. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and service-minded, the room was adequate and the food OK. The breakfast was very good. The relax-area is small, but very nice. And the price was right. On the downside: The dinner buffet... More

I actually didn’t stayed at the hotel this time, but we had a superb Mediterranean buffet with wine at their restaurant Emilia. The staff was friendly. They have also a nice swimming pool, so you can take bath if you want. The hotel is situated 5 km from Karlstad, so you need an own car or taxi to get here.... More

Stayed here for one night (business trip) in June 2013. Not the most modern hotel, but the room was clean and functional. The motorway is quite close to the hotel and it generates some noise. Breakfast was not to impressive. All in all: Fair price for this accommodation.

Nice and airy, spacious and comfortable that first impressions anyway There is also a big free car park and open wifi system. The room although spacious is a touch austere. It reminded me of a Nun’s convent room Not wanting to over do it in the comfort stakes. Breakfast is in a large room with plenty of seating though not... More

The location of the hotel is in the forest, 4 km / 2.5 miles outside the city centre of Karlstad. The nearest neighbor is an OK/Q8 petrol station (which sells some basic food products, fast food, newspapers etc. as well). The main express road E18 connection the two capitals Stockholm (Sweden) and Oslo (Norway) passes by the hotel, approx 150... More
