This hotel that literally translates as "city hotel" is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, hotel in town situated on the riverbanks of the river delta of Klaralven and by the main city square. Karlstad is famously associated with "the sunshine in Karlstad" and although it does enjoy a lot of sun hours per year, it refers to...

Part of the Elite-chain this hotel offers great quality both in ambiance, style and quality to its rooms. Service was great, and rooms clean. There is a good and popular bar in connection to the hotel. Breakfast in its stylish dining-rooms was very good. Would definitely visit again. Be sure to ask for (and pay for) a room overlooking the...

The hotel had its first guests in 1870, which was only five years after the great fire that was devastating for the city and many buildings were burnt down. Over the years its interior has been modernised, another floor has been added but apart from that the exterior remains mostly the same. My wife and I spent a weekend in...

The city is the second largest in Swedfen in terms of restaurants and pubs. Elit Hotell is located at Klarälven, a few hundred meters from the city center. Fantastic classy hotel. Highly recommended.The best is probably the breakfast, absolutely superb and have every thing you want. The times from 10.00-12.00 am, in other words no stress.

The hotel is the old famous "Stadshotellet" and it has seen its glory days. The style is modern and comfortable in classic surroundings. However the extra touc hand style is missing. My single room was OK but very small for the price. The room is modern, nicely furnished (how much can you get in 6m2?) but not extras. No equipment...

Everything is within walking distance. The "Bishop Arms" virtually on the premises and the opera across the street. Best selecrion of whiskies and beers in town and the Lars Lerin museum around the corner. What more do you need?

Situated in the centre of Karlstad Close by the river. It's a hotel with a grand history and has great outdoor seatings in the summer. Good rooms and a good bar / pub on the ground floor. This is a good starting point for visiting Karlstad any time of the year.

A recent 2 night stay was my first in Sweden. The hotel was very well placed in Karlstad and the staff team was very focussed on excellent customer service. A great stay and a location that I'd be very happy to return to. Well done Elite
