I stay at this hotel several weeks per year when I come to Karlstad to work. This time, I was given a room where the radiator made noise and I had difficulty sleeping and so I asked to change room. Instead, I was put in a room on the third floor which was of a lower standard than the first... More

The most lovely hotel that you will find in Karlstad. The value for money is very good, as well are the rooms. The breakfast is amazing with its fresh produce and diverse alternativs. For us the best part of this hotel is the close proximity to the city center. With just one minute of walking before your on the high... More

Central hotel within walking distance to everything. Also many nice walks along the river and on the little islands in it. Nive rooms, beds and bathrooms. Nice view at the breakfast even though the breakfast arena is very busy and loud, which was a bit disturbing. When having late breakfast the whole breakfast arena was filled with conference guests queing... More

The hotel is located in the heart of the city of Karlstad, a 5 minute walk away from the cental railway station. The main square with a couple of good restaurants and the adjacent pedestrian area with shops and more restaurants are more or less around the corner. The rooms are of different size (from pretty small to spacious depending... More

I stayed at the hotel for a few days and this was the second time. Rooms are nice, cosy and clean. It is also nice to have a pub in the hotel (which is normal in the Elite hotels). I had a great view from the balcony in the river. The gym could do with a clock in the wall...otherwise... More

I have spent 1 night in this hotel in my business trip. Very well located in the heart of Karlstad. Just near hotel is nice promenade near water and small park when you can relax. Room was small and basic but breakfast was quite nice.

Location is very good and close to the main square, the shopping area and plenty of cafes and restaurants. There are very few parking spaces but we were lucky there was one when we arrived. Room was quiet and it was very well cleaned. There is a pub-restaurant and fast room service. Outdated lifts with no access to all rooms.... More

This hotel has an excellent location. My room was very small, perfectly clean, had everything a 4 star hotel room should have and a nice view. It was a little to cold and it is not possible to adjust the temperature. The additional warm blanket was helpful. The breakfast is served between 6:00 and 9:00. The selection is very big,... More
