“A clarion of Nordic Choice Hotels”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

Get off the train, come out of the station, walk your bags across the road and check in and relax. Its that simple, that close!,

What else do you need?.

Wow, that's really great, but that's not good enough. The rooms should be good, staff should be helpful, internet should be fast, break fast should be healthy and tasty, house keeping should be efficient and there should be good room and bathroom amenities!.

Granted, what else do you need?

Well, it will be nice if the hotel is close to shopping district and also should have some walking spaces around and there should be wide range of multi -cuisine restaurants around feed me different flavors during my long stay.

OK Done, any thing else?

Now, i have one problem!

What?

I don't want to leave, want to stay back and enjoy my nice room, warm hospitality, vibrant neighborhood and this small beautiful town called Karlstad!

Hoops, you seems to have got pampered too much!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the view of shopping street

The hotel staff was very friendly and always helpful. After a week with them, I was sad to leave. The location couldn't be better, right across from the train station. The food was very good, and by the end I was addicted to their coffee.

50 m from the train station! Short of small rooms, I had 221. Traditional breakfast. Very good service with an evening meal: a soup and a main course plus coffee/tea and something sweet. A small but nice bararea. All in all a veryn ice stay.

Clarion Collection Drott is simply an adorable place and I just loved it. Everything related with this property was wonderful. Staff, their services, room, food, all was just great. Facilities are abundant and the attention to every detail was outstanding. Highly recommended.

Clarion Collection Drott is a very good hotel with a great location close to the railway station in Karlstad. The staff was very kind and helpful as I arrived late to the hotel. The room was in good condition and clean. There was a wide selection of tv channels for the lone traveller. As for public areas it was nice and cozy. The breakfast buffet was very nice. All in all I like the hotel and can definitely recommend it to other persons travelling to Karlstad either as a business traveller or when travelling for visiting the city of Karlstad.

We used this hotel for a one night stopover on the way through from Stockholm to a holiday further North canoeing around Swedish lakes.
It's very conveniently situated for train and bus travel from the main bus station, and also for local shopping with the main shopping street just a couple of minute's walk away.
The hotel itself is a little dated, but adequate and clean. The inclusion of an evening buffet and breakfast in the room rate makes it better value. The buffets were ok - not massive choice, but adequate.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

We stayed here for one night during August. The hotel is centrally situated just opposite the railway station and a hundred meters away from the main pedestrianized street. Our room and bathroom were very small, and the double bed was narrow, but comfortable. There was no air conditioning, but it was possible to open the windows. The room was facing the backyard so it was possible to have a quiet night with open windows. The service was friendly and helpful all the time. During the afternoon there were free cakes, fruit and coffee. We paid about 125 Euros for a double room and this included breakfast and a buffet dinner, so we thought this was very good value for money. All in all a nice stay.
