We chose Elite Stadshotellet because of its excellent location, only a 7-minute walk from the train station and overlooking Klarälven. And now that we have stayed here, we will come back again. Our standard double room was tastefully appointed. The bathroom was modern and spotlessly clean. The hotel's architecture is from the 1870s and its original grandeur has been tastefully... More

Stayed at Stadshotellet in August as a part of out round trip. The location is great along the river bank. Unfortunately the adjacent street is also the strip where cars expose their engines and HiFi equipment. The bar was ok. And the breakfast was average. There are few possibilities to sit and relax without being in the bar or restaurant.... More

Thank you for your feedback! We are sad to hear your stay with us didn't meet your expectations. Regarding the cars driving around during summertime playing music very loud, we have been in contact with the police several times and hopefully this will stop. Most of our rooms were renovated in 2007, the rest in 2014. We continuously work with... More

classy and comfortable hotel. Came for business, but found the hotel location allowed easy walking to many restaurants and sites. Excellent hotel and location in center of town. Breakfast is a real highlight.

A comfortable, large hotel with a friendly staff. Located by the river in Karlstad. Very good breakfast, lots of choices for everyone. Only one coffee machine though – no problem in the earlier part of the morning. A pub/restaurant attached to the hotel is a great asset – very popular with the locals and tourists alike, especially on sunny days.... More

Elite hotel situated in center of Karlstad, nearby water. Only a few minutes walk to museum Sandgrundet with painting of Lars Lerin. Nice tours by boats around Karlstad. About 10 minutes going by car to Alsäter- Gustaf Fröding.

All in all we had a pleasant one night stay at this quite large hotel in the centre of Karlstad. Our superior room was of good size, clean and well equipped, although the matress was a bit too soft for our taste. The bathroom was of the smaller type, with very little space given for using the toilet. The breakfast... More

Charming old hotel with a great breakfast buffet. Staff is super nice. My room was quiet and comfortable, I do believe that it was a superior double. Cleaning could have been better though and I found things in the bathroom left behind by a previous guest. But overall I had a good stay.
