Clarion Hotel Plaza is a quiet hotel in the city centre. It has a nice athmoephere and nice rooms. I like to be able to open the window - that was not possible ... They also have a relaxing area wich I wanted to use, but I did not bring bathing suite so I could not use it. I would...

Thank you for coming back to us. The windows against the roads are possible to open but the once inside the hotel are off security reasons not possible to open. Renting bathing suite is something we are looking into. Very welcome back!

Stayed in this hotel in March 2017. Check-in is very late (15:00). The hotel has a small bar/lunch&dinner area; everything in one. Breakfast is ok. The lobby is very nice. Breakfast and lunch are good/average. The room was small; the bathroom even smaller. There is almost no space where you can put your stuff. Normally in even 3-star hotels there...

I have stayed in this hotel several times and they have been pleasant stays owing to the friendly staff, strategic hotel location and their hearty breakfast selection. My recent stay was for an anniversary and the hotel granted my special request.

Stayed 5 nights at Clarion and enjoyed everything. From the restaurant, the people, the room and the jacuzzi upstairs. It is very close to the train station and shops. Would book a room anytime i'm in Karlstad. :)

I stayed at the Clarion for 7 days for business purposes. Excellent service, comfortable and clean rooms and the stand out was the food! Aesthetic presentations, taste, timing and portions for three main meals and refreshments made a daily visit to the in-house gym a necessity. The staff are to be commended, attentive yet non intrusive, friendly and always helpful....

Always a friendly and nice person in the reception. Never a problem that cannot be solved. The breakfast gives you a good start and has a broad variety. Always a pleasure to stay at Clarion Plaza! Excellent!

The overall location of the hotel was good and rooms were fine. The big problem was that the rooms that overlooked the internal courtyard got noise on a night from people drinking in the bar resulting in a phone call to reception at 00:15 to ask to stop. The following evening there was a large function in the same area...

I have been coming to Karlstad for over ten years on business and stayed at several hotels in the early days, but in the last eight years or so I have always stopped at the Plaza if they had availability. I love the peaceful atmosphere and professional way it is run, free parking as well is always a bonus.

This is located just spitting distance from the Train station and the hotel is also sporting a great brand restaurant. The rooms are quite smalla but it makes up for it by the comfort of the beds and the cleanliness of the bathroom. The open-air atrium in the middle of the hotel that hosts the breakfast is also really nice....
