Stayed here with my son en route from Oslo to Stockholm. Very comfortable hotel right by the river. Our refurbished "boutique style" room was spacious by European standards. The hotel's English-style pub offers a good range of draft beers and food and you can also sit outside overlooking the river. Excellent buffet breakfast included. Only negative was lack of free...

My partner and I stayed in this hotel for a long weekend and had a great time. The room was large and very comfortable. The hotel is in a lovely building which really adds to the stay as you eat breakfast in a super room. Breakfast was amazing. So much to have - eggs, sausage, bacon, bread, ham, cheese, pastries,...

My wife and I stayed here for four nights. Initially we were booked in for one night only but we liked it so much we extended our booking. Our room was modern and bright with plenty of natural light and an excellent bathroom. Like other Elite hotels there is a a British style pub attached to the hotel, the "...

Had a short stay of one night only. We booked the day before via phone. Before arrival next day they called us and told us that it was some problems because of their IT-system didn't give the right information the day before. They offered us a standard room instead of the deluxe we had ordered, to single price. The room...

Just back and found hotel to be excellent. Rooms very spacey, Staff friendly and food pleasant. Bar had a cool feel to it as well. Small issues regarding layout as it was a bit of a walk to our rooms 267/268. But overall was very pleased with this hotel

Been to Karlstad on our way to Stockholm ... the hotel is situated in the middle of the town, close to the river, just perfectly for a stay in this city. We had a standard room and loved it - it was big, nicely renovated, with a huge bathroom and lots of space everywhere. The breakfast and the service in...

Stayed for one night during my Scandinavian vacation. The location of the hotel is very central within the city, and pretty much everything worth seeing is within easy walking distance. It could be difficult to navigate to by car, especially during heavy traffic times. One problem was that the hotel doesn't have many parking spaces, so you may end up...

For a special weekend rate and with the cheap (currently) Swedish currency, this was a great bargain. Stayed at a "deluxe" room, which is the best out of three non-suite room types. The room looked great, if not necessarily reflecting the rich historical heritage otherwise on display in the building. Both the room and the bathroom were in a classy,...
