Location of this hotel is very good and just few meters from the railway station. Rooms are rather small but functional and clean; no frills, very basic. I liked the hall and the many design pieces which are around: forniture, walls, lobby..... I would suggest it to my friends.

Stayed over one night only on a business trip in this centrally located hotel, just a few minutes' walk from the Railway station. The ambience is cozy and friendly, and common spaces such as the downstairs plaza were inviting and interestingly decorated with a modern twist. Our room was large and comfortable but slightly worn-out and outdated by design though,... More

Nice staff that is always smiling, Very good food and very nice breakfast. Rooms are big and comfortable, They are currently renovating so a little disturbance. But nice and quiet anyway. The old rooms are a worn down, but the new rooms are outstanding.

First of all, the biggest asset is that Clarion Hotel Plaza is within 3 minutes walk from the train station - even with a suitcase. It is bigger than what one can expect from outside, thanks to a large indoor open space. I found that very pleasant walking in. I was, however, not so pleasantly surprised when I found out... More

The Clarion Plaza is situated very conveniently next to the main rail station in Karlstad, and close to town centre. Very friendly staff and hotel generally clean although some renovation work was in progress (06/2013). Room was a good size with usual facilities although no iron or ironing board. Air conditioning quite noisy although not by American standards! Wifi via... More

I was there for 1 night and the name mislead me, I hoped for a higher standard, but found a basic standard hotel. When checking I ask for parking and they told me they had an arrangement with the parking house across the street, I should just drive up to the 5th floor and leave the ticket I received in... More

We chose it due to the highest Choice hotel certification. Even we just had an overnight stay on our way to Gävle, we will never stay there again. Imagine, a room with an awful bar chair arrangement instead of a simple desk & chair; a "paper on the wall" instead of a wall picture; the "construction" placed under the ceiling... More

Stayed here two nights in 2010, when Holland beat Uruguay in the semi final of the World Cup. We did not like the first room we were given. It was in front of the busy road, and furthermore there was still a spare bed folded up in the room. The room we moved to was at the end of the... More
