A hotel that really knows what service is all about. They make me feel important and I feel like they really care about what I think. The breakfast had everything one ever could ask for, I didn't miss a thing.

We stayed here in August, 2015 and were disappointed with the hotel and room in general. The room and bath were very small. Hard to find a place to put two suitcases. The room was noisy and next to a busy road. It was however, close to the city center, shops and restaurants. However, shops and some restaurants are closed... More

Very convenient mid-size hotel near the Railway station. Modern athmosphere and friendly staff that really looks after you. Our "superior" rooms were a bit small so I would recommend a standard room at a lower price. The hotel offers excellent golf packages. The food - both breakfast and dinner in the restaurant were tasty and good value for Money.

This hotel is situated very in the city centre close to the railway station. The hotel is clean and cosy. However, the rooms to the courtyard can be hot as the windows cannot be opened and the air condition does not help very much. The staff in the reception is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is OK. It is... More

A very nice hotel in the centre of Karlstad. A little bit noisy from the main street outside, but very good beds. The receptionists take good care of your stay in the hotel. It is very easy to park your car in a parking house next to the hotel.

The Hotel was good. Clean rooms, but quite small, clean gym but quite small, clean spa but quite small. That is the reason why I give just three stars to the Hotel.
