The hotel is under renovation and bit noisy during these hours. But during the evening it’s nice. In general the renovation is positive, since the hotel and rooms are a bit worn. Overall the hotel is ok and best is the location in the city center. It’s close to many things and a lot of restaurants ie. Arrival with car... More

The location of this hotel is very good, just at the edge of the city center. That is good since you can walk to all shops and restaurants but you won’t be disturbed by nightlife and other things. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I got all necessary information when checking in, which is perfect since you don’t have... More

Average Scandic hotel, like many others. Staff very friendly and cozy bar/restaurant area. The breakfast is large and tasty.The rooms are basic, kinda old fashioned, and it was a bit cold during the night. Good location, the main square is about 300mt away.

The hotel was alright. Some of the rooms are newly refurbished, but unfortunately I wasn't lucky enough to get one of those rooms. We stayed three people in the room, which was a bit too small for three adults. However the hotels breakfast was good and they have a gym and a jacuzzi. The hotel is close to the centre... More

I was only in Karlstad for a day, but it was a very pleasant experience. The Scandic Winn has a good location. It was next to a park and a five minute walk into town. My room was a good size and clean. The breakfast was also quite good. If I ever return to Karlstad, I will stay here again.

Probably because the hotel fulfill all your needs. Spacious rooms, without carpet! Almost in the city centre, but quiet! A walk in the park just outside the hotel is recommended. The breakfast is very good and the staff is nice. Even the car park is good at this hotel. As said you keep coming back, we do
