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.

I stayed here one night. The room was tidy and had the facilities you need. Less good was the noise from the elevator that I heard from my room.

Nice and accommodating front desk. Well cleaned rooms. Quite small bathroom. The hotel would benefit greatly from a brush up on the outside. The paint is crackled on the facade and this makes it look shabby.

I stay at this hotel several weeks per year when I come to Karlstad to work. This time, I was given a room where the radiator made noise and I had difficulty sleeping and so I asked to change room. Instead, I was put in a room on the third floor which was of a lower standard than the first...
