Although we only stayed overnight, on the way to Stockholm from Oslo, we enjoyed the queen sized room, good bed, excellent facilities, although a long walk to the reception, food and the elevators. Food, especially breakfast was good. The Internet worked well, though not formally secured. Parking was free outside the hotel from 1800 to 0900, the car park itself...

After a truly miserable experience at the Clarion Bilan, we went searching for another hotel, fast. The room we were shown at the Elite was a "Deluxe Double," costing only $15US more per night than a normal Double...for about three times the space, and a bathroom that was easily double the normal size. Lovely, bright, and clean, plus it had...

We stayed here on our wedding night. The room was fantastic, but we were disappointed in the service. We arrived late, still in our wedding outfit and had to wait to check in. I guess that is alright, but the person behind the counter really didn't to anything to speed things up with the guest before us. Also, in spite...

I stayed for one night on a business trip. The Hotel is fine, the room is OK, service was good, a good choice for breakfast. It was nothing special but there was also nothing big to complain about.

Like one of the previous notes; it was also offered as the best place to stay in Karlstad. I have expected something more. Correct room cleanliness, tasty breakfast.

Stayed for one night on a short stop in Karlstad. The staff was friendly and forthcoming. The room was not big but big enough. The room was also modern decorated but had a poor view (a backyard and a glimpse of Klarälven) I'll give an extra plus for the breakfast. Very nice served as a buffet and with a large...

Stayed for a few nights in business in what is apparently supposed to be the best hotel in Karlstad. Centrally located in a nice, old building, but otherwise very basic. The standard room was very small, with no views to speak of, just barely met business standard and could definitely use an update. Basic Swedish hotel breakfast. Helpful staff. If...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights.The first night was on our way to Stockholm from Oslo when we had a very pleasant experience. The room is large, the air-conditioner is working perfect and the bath room is newly decorated with very modern design. However, on our way back to Oslo, we were given a room which is much...

Perhaps this was once a grander hotel than it is today, but it serves very well if you find yourself in this region of Sweden. Easy to locate, close to a park and lake, the hotel has all the basic services including a free breakfast and free wireless. The rooms are not large but are comfortable and contain all the...
