Great room facilities and marvelous location. Also very good service, but parking spaces are limited. We had to park a rather far distance from the hotel. So one should check in the lugguages first before parking. This is our first experience of the Elite chain of hotels. We didn't realize it is so wonderful!

The hotel is really beautiful and in a perfect location to see Karlstad. Junior suite is wonderful. We loved to stay here. Staff very kindly. Good breakfast. We have also reserved the garage for our car.

The rooms have been well renovated but are slightly small. The elevators are in dire need of a replacement to something decent. If there is no money for such upgrade then at least a little oil should be put to stop the squeaking, it is really terrible; same goes for the doors. The breakfast is good. Internet also good.

Stylish comfortable room. Great central location. Lovely to be able to sit on terrace for drinks and dinner. Very helpful staff. Good to have free use of computer and printer. Parking could be an issue.

We had a nice but small room with a balcony with a view. It is very nice to walk in the surroundings of the hotel by the river and in parks. Excellent breakfast Note to hotel manager: The elevators really need to be modernized!

We had a good room. Good beds. It was overlooking the street but not much noise. The service was ok, the hotel was fully booked for the Whitsun weekend. There is a big pub downstairs, the music was rather noisy. Ordinary Swedish breakfast.

We had a large room with a lovely river view (ask for one!). Bed and furnishings were comfortable. Light more than ample. Rate of about $200 included a substantial breakfast. Only minus was the elevators -- very heavy doors, system not self-evident.

I've stayed at Statshotellet quite a few times during the last years, and they always deliver what you would expect. The building is really nice with a touch of old day glory, but the standards are up to date. It is beautifully situated at the Klaraelven river, in the middle of Karlstad. Breakfast is good but not fantastic. Wifi coverage... More

Stayed two nights with a child. First night could not sleep because our room was facing the "Temple" night club at the corner. Were disturbed by strong bass beats from that club outdoor sitting area.

Thank you for your feedback! This is one negative thing of being a centrally located hotel. Especially during summertime when doors and windows are open, at our hotel and our neighbors, it’s hard to close out different noises. We have an ongoing dialogue with nearby restaurants/nightclubs to find a good solution for all of us. Best regards Anna Björkenstam Wedberg More

Have been at this hotel several times, and have got standard single room. Normal size room in good condition and cleaning looks good. Friendly staff and excellent bar. Average breakfast, but good space in breakfast area.
