Reviewed 11 July 2017

Met up with 3 childhood friends for a a chance to have a chat and see Karlstad for the first time.We always choose a new venue for what has become an annual "meet up".The hotel is in a great location but a little faded grandeur,we had some hiccups with the rooms but it was sorted and the room staff was excellent, and indeed the rest of the staff.
My gripe is that i couldn't pay with my Swedish Swedbank debit card as it is MaestroCard,so had to resort to my English credit card.The bill has just arrived and a hefty £6.45 transaction charge was added to my bill.Why does the hotel not take MaestroCard,

Room Tip: As k for a room with a river view

À very comfortable hotel at the river Klarälven. The hotel is situated in the center of Karlstad.
The staff at the reception was very helpful. Brekfirst was rich and good.
IF you have a big car you should know that the garage is very small. One of the lifts was
out of order the four days of my stay!

Room Tip: Best wievs over the river.

Nice, spacious rooms, with nice bathroom facilities, quiet and dark.

In an older building with unique lift :)

Breakfast was nice, but could be improved, as others have stated both on room served in and on breakfast offered, decent coffee :)

Pub in hotel served nice food and drinks and does room service.

Parking was full on arrival however we were able to find street parking.

For those with kids, close to great playground in town and the other way short walk to main streets of Town.

Highly recommend.

This is the most prominent hotel in Karlstad. The rooms a perfect and modern, but the hotel interior is rather dull and grey. The breakfast is served in a very sober hall. Come on and decorate this place.

Ok, but nothing over the top.
Improvements could easily had been done before letting customers into the rooms.
Information about the construction site ouside the window could have been shared.
Silent rooms, nice staff, ok breakfast.
