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.

Stayed here for 1 night in October, nice looking exterior and bar but the room was pathetic. My company booked it and it wasn't as cheap business class as you could book online for a standard room. The room was not much bigger than a cupboard the bed was a disgrace and the bathroom was small and dirty I would... More

This hotel is located right in the center of Karlstad, next to the main square and the river Klarälven, with all shops and restaurants nearby. There is an art museum with works by Lars Lerin, a fine water colour painter from the area, within a few minutes walk. The hotel is nice and friendly, with modern rooms (at least the... More

We impetuously decided to get off our train to Stockholm at Karlstad and found a room at Elite. When the sun rose the next day we found out what a charming town this is and how nice the hotel is too. Very good, spacious room, excellent breakfast and in a great location.

When going to Karlstad we chose to stay at the Elite since we earlier have stayed in other Elite hotels as well as this, and think its good value for money. The check-in were smooth and quick with very service minded staff who also gave us good directions regarding parking availabilities in the city Center. We had booked a “Superior... More

We only had one night at this hotel, but would have been happy with longer. It's right in the centre and handy for bars and shops and as it looks out over the waterways it is central for the Solapromenaden walk which we did. We ate at the adjoining Bishops Arms and had good swedish food. The breakfast was varied... More

Walking distance from the railway station, the hotel itself is very accommodating. The location, the scenery, the staff, the rooms were as expected. Breakfast was alright but nothing extraordinary, although a hotel of choice when staying in Karlstad.

Stayed here for one night in mid July. Front desk staff not overly friendly but we were helped when it was needed. Room was a classic modern one that had great view, but was also so small that for the price charged, couldn't help but feel ripped off. Comfortable but small beds, as expected for this part of the world.... More

We have travelled many times to Sweden, so have stayed in a variety of accommodation, but thank goodness we only pre-booked for two nights. Re other reviews on several issues !. we had an initial problem with our holiday company voucher. 2. The room we were allotted was so depressing with a view over a flat roof and crumbling brickwork.... More
