This is a great hotel, it does exactly what a hotel should, good shower, clean & comfortable beds, good tv with av connections, professional reception, good bar, good choice breakfast buffet & they have upgraded the downstairs since I've been last so now have a nice cocktail lounge & evening restaurant - conveniently situated for all attractions, shops & transport

Perfect located downtown. We arrived late for one night stop on our way to Trysil. Easy to check in, park the car and find a restaurant for dinner. Good beds and breakfast. Silent rooms, so easy to sleep.

Was in Karlstad for a quick stay over with family after skiing vacation. Supposed to be informed upon arrival that restaurant was closed on sundays. If that had been informed upon confirmation of booking I would have found other hotel

I have been visiting Karlstad in business for a couple of times now and choose this hotel every time. Great location with lots of restaurants and shops in the neighbourhood. Nice and clean room with a very comfortable bed. Their friendly staff always make me feel welcome to the hotel. Their breakfast buffé is great.

Stayed here for 3 nights, it is in the middle of town and also close to the train station. The rooms are basic but have everything you need, wifi is good. The breakfast is good and the dinner menu is small but good also. All the staff were very friendly.

The hotel is centrally located in Karlstad, and city centre with all it´s offers is within walking distance. The room was nice, clean and tidy. Modern atmosphere in the lobby area, and helpful staff. Quick and easy check-in and check-out. Breakfast with great variety of food and drinks.

A lovely hotel conveniently located to tourist attractions and the city heart. Rooms were a decent size and the breakfast had a wonderful array of food... There is a funky bar in the hotel, however it was (thankfully... 😝) closed during our stay.
