Small European rooms - no surprise. Typically will get a twin-sized bed arrangement so make sure you are specific about what you need. Bathrooms could use upgrading -- old "grody" tiles. In-room lighting around mirrors is quite possibly the worst I've ever seen. Have recently upgraded their restaurant space, lounge and lobby -- and they did a great job of it. Now it is time to do the sleeping rooms. A lot of street noise (earplugs block out all the noise) and seems to attract a noisy crowd that is up after midnight making noise in the halls -- to hotel's credit, they responded quickly when I called the front desk. Breakfast is quite extensive. Other meals lack any choice or flavor. Hotel staff acts woefully uninformed about area - what to see, how to get there, where to eat. (hard to believe they don't know since it is a very small city and it seems that when you are in town everyone knows everyone else) Free wireless internet in rooms is great. Only 1/2 block from train station -- and pretty much a block or two from the main areas of Karlstad. Summer into Fall attracts a large Asian tourist population-- the sheer number of them can be overwhelming as they tend to travel in packs and show little awareness of their surroundings -- will cut you off, bump into you and generally want to stand in the exact same spot you are presently standing in. Getting away from breakfast buffet without getting something spilled on you will take some talent.
