Reviewed 22 March 2017

The hotel is the old famous "Stadshotellet" and it has seen its glory days. The style is modern and comfortable in classic surroundings. However the extra touc hand style is missing. My single room was OK but very small for the price. The room is modern, nicely furnished (how much can you get in 6m2?) but not extras. No equipment...

Everything is within walking distance. The "Bishop Arms" virtually on the premises and the opera across the street. Best selecrion of whiskies and beers in town and the Lars Lerin museum around the corner. What more do you need?

Situated in the centre of Karlstad Close by the river. It's a hotel with a grand history and has great outdoor seatings in the summer. Good rooms and a good bar / pub on the ground floor. This is a good starting point for visiting Karlstad any time of the year.

A recent 2 night stay was my first in Sweden. The hotel was very well placed in Karlstad and the staff team was very focussed on excellent customer service. A great stay and a location that I'd be very happy to return to. Well done Elite

Over all this hotel was a very good one to stay in. The room was very comfortable and the staff were extremely friendly throughout the stay. The breakfast was comprehensive (pretty much what you get at any good hotel). It's location was also perfect for going out for a few drinks.

We chose Elite Stadshotellet because of its excellent location, only a 7-minute walk from the train station and overlooking Klarälven. And now that we have stayed here, we will come back again. Our standard double room was tastefully appointed. The bathroom was modern and spotlessly clean. The hotel's architecture is from the 1870s and its original grandeur has been tastefully...

Stayed at Stadshotellet in August as a part of out round trip. The location is great along the river bank. Unfortunately the adjacent street is also the strip where cars expose their engines and HiFi equipment. The bar was ok. And the breakfast was average. There are few possibilities to sit and relax without being in the bar or restaurant....
