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.

This hotel that literally translates as "city hotel" is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, hotel in town situated on the riverbanks of the river delta of Klaralven and by the main city square. Karlstad is famously associated with "the sunshine in Karlstad" and although it does enjoy a lot of sun hours per year, it refers to the once very cheerful waitress working at this hotel that now stands statue in front of the hotel by the river. The location is definitely the best part of this hotel.

This hotel is well frequented for conferences and banquets, which also means that the restaurant and service is very reliable.

The view from the rooms overlooking the river and the theater on the other side could hardly be improved upon.

But of course there are cons, which include lack of proper A/C system (unfortunately, quite common in Sweden) so watch out in the summer months and make sure you pre-order a fan or two. Breakfast could also be improved upon if you are a fan of English breakfast.

Room Tip: Get a river view room
