“Tired Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

I stayed in this hotel in Oct. 2011 for a few nights.

The location is great - central town, close to the train station and car parking just across the road. Reception is located at the bar, which also doubles up as the breakfast area in the morning. The service from the staff is friendly and attentive.

The room I stayed in was clean and tidy just of a low standard, looking very tired and dated. It had a single bed (which seems to be the norm in scandanivia) a cheap desk area with a TV and a trouser press with the cable cut off so it didn't work. The bathroom was a wet room with a toilet and seperate shower area.

I didn't eat in the hotel in the evening so I can't comment on the menu but the breakfast menu had a good selection and the food was enjoyable.

Overall the poor standard of the room means I will not be returning to this hotel which is a pity as the location and staff were both plus points.

Spend one night. Not for the first time heree. The first was at 2006. So for me the main thing was the location and parking area. It is perfect. Too many places to park the car and the location gives you many different directions to start driving. As in 2006 to many cameras on the highways:-)
I took the cheapest room, no smoking, with breakfast. The breakfast was as usuall in scandinavia. The room is small, but clean, nice towels in Best Western chain.
This time there were many people with pets, and this is allowed to come to this hotel

Stayed at this hotel for one night and we liked it. It´s close to the railwaystation (2 minutes) rigth in the Centre of Karlstad. We were in Karlstad to see the opening nigt of the musical "The wedding singer" (a really great show, ve really loved it !) and it took us just 10 minutes to walk to the theatre. It´s also close to a lots of restaurants and shops.

Our room was nicely furnitured and nice colours. We love hotelrooms when they have wooden floor and NOT carpet. The beds were very nice and the room was clean. The bathroom was not so big but it was clean and nice.

The staff were friendly and we could use internet for free at the reception.

This is a hotel that we can recomend and to a good price !

The hotel is centrally located in Karlstad, easy to reach by car or if you arrive by train (next to the central station).

Parking in building next to the premises.

Reception/lobby is combined with pub and breakfast area.

Rooms and guest areas are a bit shabby and show signs of tear down (august 2006). Rates are inexpensive though.

Decent breakfast.
