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. Brought it to the attention of the staff - two times - staff promised to talk to the club owner as it is " a... More

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.

A new visit to this nice hotel wher I was promised a superior room. So they called it, but that was the smallest "superior" I have seen. Both room and bath were too small for a grown-up man. I had been there earlier and had a better room, which now was called something else. For the rest, nice staff, clean,... More

Went here for a romantic weekend. I had booked a suite with a balcony over-looking the river. I have stayed at this hotel many times on business, but this was my first time privately. We really enjoyed the room and most of all a bottle of champagne on the balcony watching the gorgeous sun-set. There was some sort of car... More

Stayed for one night in a Superior room. This is simply an excellent hotel. Very nice and quiet. The room was on the small side, nicely furnished, and clean. Bed was great. Very friendly and helpful staff who impressed me with smiles and forthcoming attitude. Every expectation I had up front was met at this hotel. It's so good to... More

Me and my boyfriend was here for our second time. The hotel itself is great so it the pub Bishop Arms. The first time we had a standard double room it was very tiny. This time we had a deluxe room who was very nice. My only complain is that the toilet paper in the rooms is very hard.
