It takes about 10-12 minutes walk from the train station to reach this Hotel. With broad and smooth pavements all the way up the hotel, you don't really feel stressed to drag your bags. Once you are in, you will realize that its worth that walk to stay in this fantastic Hotel and in the serene environs. The Elite Hotel... More

I stay in this hotel every year and it never fails to impress. Rooms are typically Scandinavian (basic, minimal but very clean), noise from other rooms is minimal, staff excellent (all with an amazing level of English that makes me embarrassed to be English). But the real plus points are the breakfast, which is top-notch and the adjoining 'Bishop Arms'... More

Traveling by train from Oslo to Stockholm decided to break up the trip by staying a night in Karlstad. A three block walk from the train station was the Elite. The room was quite large and quite well furnished with a modern look as the photos show. They do have rooms fronting the street but didn't have any available that... More

The Bishop's Arms Pub forms part of the Elite Hotel and was quite a surprise to find such a homely place like this in Sweden, even more so for the fact that there are 36 similar pubs throughout the region. We found this pub by chance whilst wandering around Karlstad and decided to enjoy a meal and have a few... More

Old-school style hotel. I paid 1200SEK for a room which was very small. bathroom had decent standard. The breakfast is among the very best i have had at a scandinavian hotel, and it served late until noon! Staff is super friendly and very helpful!

I have stayed several times at the Elite Stadshotel, usually in connection with conferences. This summer we used the hotel as a stopover while traveling to Norway from Denmark. We were going on summer holiday with our dog for the first time, and found that the Stadshotel provided excellent rooms where dogs were allowed. In addition the Stadshotel provides central... More

What a beautiful hotel and a beautiful, charming city. We stayed in. Deluxe room which we found to be very roomy and nicely decorated. Our king sized bed was very comfortable. Hotel staff is friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was very good with a large assortment of pastries, meats, cheeses, fruits and vegetables. The hotel is within walking distance...

We were happy to have stayed here and sorry it was for one night only. We will be sure to return and do a whole weekend! Room is beatiful, beds are very comfortable and even if we had view to the street everything was totally quiet.

The hotel was beautifully situated at the nice Klarälven river in the very center of Karlstad, so you have short distance to almost every main attraction you wanted to visit. The breakfast was superb with a large range of alternative to choose from. The staff was friendly. At the ground floor at the hotel is the famous “Bishop Arms Pub”,... More
