This hotel is just 5 mins walk from the train station, and very close to the park, library and Varmlands Museum. So the location is excellent. The whole area is surrounded by shops and restaurants and there will be something for every taste.

Reception is small, but the staff are friendly and efficient and speak English very well. They will give you a 24 hour wifi code and also a code to the front door, which is locked from 8.30pm onwards! You will also receive a door key for your room - NOT a keycard, but an actual physical door key. Don't lose it! There is only one lift, but I never saw it being busy.

The room is very basic, but it looks clean. The design I felt was a bit awkward, but it is generally what you expect at a European Ibis.

Bathroom is also basic and unfortunately it was obvious it had not been cleaned properly as there were hairs - long and short - all over the basin and floor. Very disappointed about this. Otherwise, the bathroom was adequate, although the toilet seat looked like it had been put on incorrectly and didn't quite sit right on the toilet. Only basic liquid soap and shower gel is provided, so you might want to bring your own.

Breakfast was very very basic - the same as you get in most Swedish Ibis hotels - ham, cheese, paté with breads, juices, teas and coffee. It was more than edible and pleasant. Breakfast is included in the price of the room.

Wifi was fast and easy to log-in. Note - you will need a different code for each device, but reception happily gave me two wifi codes. They are valid for 24 hours.

Overall - I prefer the Elite and Scandic hotels in Karlstad, but they also cost a lot more.

A typical Ibis hotel and very similar to lots of others around Europe, very well located and good value. Breakfast was somewhat better than usual. The room was small, especially the bathroom, but adequate. The main grumble we had was the lack of decent pillows, there were only three all of them tiny. A request for more was politely received but not acted on.

With regard to the relatively low price w paid for the room this was really good value for money. It is a hotel with basic services, no luxury but clean and well organised. Excellent location in the city centre.

We have spent one night here during the past five or six years on our way to holidays in Norway.

I stayed her while I was visiting the University for a business trip. The staff are really helpful but the rooms are basic and so are the other facilities. The breakfast was really good but in fairness not worth the extra price on the room. All in all the price for my 4 night stay was ok.

Ibis Karlstad is situated slap bang in the centre of Karlstad. It's within walking distance of the Central train station, bars, restaurants, shops and many wonderful parks. This can entail noise, especially on Friday & Saturday nights when the Swedes are partying so bring ear plugs if you like to sleep with the windows open & you have to in summer, there is no a/c in the rooms.
Room are plain, bathrooms are small but very clean. Room 206 has a shower curtain, where the shower door should be & I'm not a fan of germ laden shower curtains!
Reception staff are friendly & efficient. A huge minus is that wifi is not free. This should be standard that at least in some part of the hotel, guests can connect to free wifi.
Breakfast was fantastic, a good range of cheeses, fruits & yogurt. Coffee was from a machine , drinkable but you'd wonder why they don't showcase their Löfbergs Lila coffee which is roasted locally.
In summary, if you are looking for a budget hotel in the centre of Karlstad, close to everything, Ibis should be your number one choice, but bring earplugs if you want to sleep on a friday or Saturday night!
