I had a very good stay at Clarion Karlstad, attentive and friendly service during the whole visit. The room was beautiful and the bed was excellent. Varied and fresh breakfast. I would definitely return.

The overall location of the hotel was good and rooms were fine. The big problem was that the rooms that overlooked the internal courtyard got noise on a night from people drinking in the bar resulting in a phone call to reception at 00:15 to ask to stop. The following evening there was a large function in the same area... More

I have been coming to Karlstad for over ten years on business and stayed at several hotels in the early days, but in the last eight years or so I have always stopped at the Plaza if they had availability. I love the peaceful atmosphere and professional way it is run, free parking as well is always a bonus.

This is located just spitting distance from the Train station and the hotel is also sporting a great brand restaurant. The rooms are quite smalla but it makes up for it by the comfort of the beds and the cleanliness of the bathroom. The open-air atrium in the middle of the hotel that hosts the breakfast is also really nice.... More

Miserable place windows don't open inside and no ventilation. Don't think about food because the restaurants arent open on a Sunday and there is no room service. Staff are OK but not too responsive and breakfast is not filled up

We came in early and stressed on our way to a wedding and the front desk got us a nice room in spite of ordinary check in two hours later. The line to the waffle maker was too long so we can only vouch for all of the other good stuff including Swedish style pancakes for breakfast. The room was... More

Nice hotel in a central location. Next to the train st. Little or no noise from the train st. Some noise from the road outside our room, but it did not bother us much.

My girlfriend and I have stayed in quite a few hotels the last couple of years, but the experience we had with the hotel staff when checking in at this hotel was amongst the worst so far.
