We asked our last hotel to make reservations for us at Best Western Karlstad. Upon arrival the receptionist smiled and said "I have upgraded your room! Since you probably are pretty tired after riding your motorbike all day I'll let you have our suite with a bubble bath!" The suite was fantastic and we also very much enjoyed the dinner:... More

This hotel definitelly does not deserve 4 stars - maximum 2 stars. Furniture is primitive and worn - see pictures - it rembembers 70's. I could smell a cigarettes smoke in the room. It was very warm in the room allthough outdoor temeprature was only 18deg.C. When I opened windows to ventilate the room I was exposed to extreme noise... More

I & my wife staying here just for one night before we go to Oslo. The location here is far from the city and no shops and convenience store around, therefore, it looks not so convenience especially you wanna do some shopping. The room is not big but clean and tidy, the room rate is a bit high and not... More

I guess I was staying in one of the economy rooms at the very end of the corridor. These rooms had green doors, unlike the others at the front of the corridor. So that probably explains why the room was not new and modern as commented by some on this website. The room had several broken lamps and was therefore... More

We stopped here after a long, tiring trip from southern Norway. Had lunch in the dining room as we waited for our room (it was 1:30 in the afternoon). The special of the day was teriyaki salmon. It was excellent both in taste and in price. The room was fun to be in. It had some things that I had... More

Everything was OK, but the room standard was quite old and didn't feel like it was worth 4 stars that are claimed. Most modern 3 star hotels have rooms that feel more fresh. But nothing specific to complain about.

Let me say that I have stayed at numerous hotels across the world but this is my first visit to Sweden so I cannot say how this compares to other hotels in Sweden. I stayed at the hotel in late September to visit family. The hotel is easy to find and has plenty of free parking a lot of the... More

Basic, but modern, fresh and clean rooms, that seemed to be recently redecorated. Comfortable bed, and fairly quiet surroundings, but quite far from the town centre. There was no safe or fridge/minibar in the room, but there was a kettle. Breakfast buffet (enclosed) was nice with plenty of choices, but I couldn´t find any organic choices. Free Wi-Fi.There´s a small... More

I like the idea of a theme-hotel and I wish the rooms had been inspired by Froding's poetry. However, it seems that the rooms (or, at least, the one I stayed in) are still in a process of revamping: there is a mix of old (furniture) and new (the rest). There is a lake nearby, with a nice view, if... More

basic hote, no air conditioning, luckily the room windows can be opened, perhaps a bit weird looking that like 7floor building has big rooms all the windows open :) but i could park my bike right beside the hotel, under my window, so that's the most important thing, when on motorcycle trips :) breakfast... i think there was one :)...
