Small cosy hotel, with a very good breakfast, and friendly, service minded staff. The room was a bitt small, but nice and clean. Location was ok. Only one elevator, which is a problem during breakfast time. The reception was not manned 24/7. All in all, a nice stay at a cosy hotel

The room had not been cleaned properly upon we arrival. It was very simple for that price and quite dark with only a very small window. Light fell off the ceiling when somebody on the floor above put something heavy on the ground. You had to ask the breakfast staff for refilling the buffet and it took far too long.

It was my pleasure to stay in this hotel because of friendly staff, great view at the river, and spacious rooms with possible connection for family of 6 members. Everything is within walking distance for not more than 10 minutes.

Stayed here while attending a show in the arena next door. Nice boutique hotel with pretty much everything within walking distance. About a 15min walk from the train station. Room (superior) was nice and clean and staff was friendly and professional. Breakfast had everything you'd want. Recommended!

A very nice, fresh and bright hotel. I enjoyed my stay and I had a very good sleep and a good breakfast. Nice staff, and everything worked well with booking, checking in and out. I will definitely visit this hotel again in the future.

Hotel with a nice location by the river. Renovated room, ok. The breakfast was a disappointment. Served in the restaurant(small)/bar/reception, not what i expected from a hotel breakfast. My friend tried the scrambled egg and it tasted awfully he said, I avoided it. When we checked in we were told that the reception was not staffed during the night. I...

A very nice hotel in the central of Karlstad. Very friendly and welcoming staff, good wi-fi and a descent breakfast. A good bed. The restaurant had a good selection of meals at dinner and the "långkok" i ate was really nice!

This hotel is just at the conference centre. Clean/fresh and with very good service and food. The surroundings are beautiful and it is close to Sandburg, Museum that displays Lars Lerins gorgeous works. Do not miss!
