Small but tastefully furnished rooms, views over Klarälven river and the city center. Great breakfast buffet. Helpful staff - we could leave our car at the hotel parking and some of our luggage in storage when we spent a night biking to Uddeholm on "Klarälvsbanan", a 90km rail trail - a must for bicycle tourists! Very competetive pricing when booking...

This was not a good deal, SEK 1.500 for a double in something called superior room in order to get a good size bed. It was good tourist class at the very best, with a modern but very unpractical bathroom. Neither the bed nor the furniture was comfortable. Good pub with a huge selection of beers. Average food but excellent...

We were very pleasantly surprised by Elite Stadshotellet in Karlstad. From the photos it looks quite large, but it is actually rather quaint and charming, with the feel of a much smaller boutique hotel. That started from the very moment we checked in with the extremely friendly and helpful desk staff, who recommended the best way to see the highlights...

This is a huge hotel built, I'm sure, at least a century ago. It was a very long walk to our room which was nice but with a very small bathroom. The staff was nice, parking was difficult as their lot was full so we parked on the street, and we had a very nice breakfast. I wouldn't call this...

Searching Tripadvisor for a stop-over hotel on the way from Stockholm to Norway, we found little in alternatives to this Hotel in Karlstad, made a reservation, and could not have been happier with our choice. Located facing a scenic riverside in the heart Karlstad with pedestrianized shopping streets around the block, the hotel is easy to locate and curbside parking...

Stayed here with my son en route from Oslo to Stockholm. Very comfortable hotel right by the river. Our refurbished "boutique style" room was spacious by European standards. The hotel's English-style pub offers a good range of draft beers and food and you can also sit outside overlooking the river. Excellent buffet breakfast included. Only negative was lack of free...

My partner and I stayed in this hotel for a long weekend and had a great time. The room was large and very comfortable. The hotel is in a lovely building which really adds to the stay as you eat breakfast in a super room. Breakfast was amazing. So much to have - eggs, sausage, bacon, bread, ham, cheese, pastries,...

My wife and I stayed here for four nights. Initially we were booked in for one night only but we liked it so much we extended our booking. Our room was modern and bright with plenty of natural light and an excellent bathroom. Like other Elite hotels there is a a British style pub attached to the hotel, the "...

Had a short stay of one night only. We booked the day before via phone. Before arrival next day they called us and told us that it was some problems because of their IT-system didn't give the right information the day before. They offered us a standard room instead of the deluxe we had ordered, to single price. The room...
