This hotel is located in a beautiful building. The inside interior is very stylish as well. There is a very relaxed and pleasant atmosphere over the entire hotel and staff, something you rarely find nowadays. Room was beautiful and large. Everything well functioning! Breakfast was great! Restaurant for dinner was also very good, although we found some of the dishes... More

When you see the word historic, it might imply old or creaky or outdated. The Bofors is none of these, well maybe older in age, but the recent renovation has kept it up with times. The rooms are quiet and good sized, the bed was very comfortable and the heated bathroom floor was a welcome treat. The wireless coverage was... More

Stayed here for 1 night. Everything seemed very nice. Room was very nice and spacious with nice shower room and spacious wardrobe. Breakfast was nice but limited in variety. There is a free pool room downstairs to keep you entertained. Didn't get much chance to try any of the other hotel facilities though.

You pay a lot of money here compared to other accommodations in Karlskoga, but it's worth it. Excellent service and good dining, both a restaurant and a bistro. The hotel has had a tune up during spring 2013 so most of the furniture and equipment is brand new. Skip the elevator, the stairs are worth a walk.

It appears that Karlskoga is not blessed with an over-abundant supply of accommodation and the view is that Bofors is by far the best. I arrived with business colleagues late on a Sunday evening (10pm). There was a staff member there to let us in but no other facilities (bar, snacks) which would have been welcome after a long drive... More

Very good hotel in Karlskoga, almost unexpected. Renewed structure, large room and bed. I suggest this hotel to spend a night in this town. Very good bistrot and also the restaurant should be nice, but expensive...i was really lucky since the hotel was full I got the president suite at the price of standard room!!

This is a great hotel for business trips to karlskoga. The staff are extremely helpful and pleasant, the rooms are clean and spacious, and the bathrooms have excellent shower facilities, with underfloor heating. It is only a short walk into town and there are plenty of routes nearby if you like to run or walk for exercise. The hotel also... More

Rooms are fairly basic, but the hotel overall is lovely, the surroundings are beautiful, and the waterfront walk is a must. I traveled there for business, and the rest of my team were not terribly enthusiastic about the rooms - which to be fair are sparse. Dinner was lovely, and breakfast perfect.

The main reason for visiting Karlskoga would be for visiting the businesses there. The Bofors hotel is very elegant with period rooms, but with modern bathrooms and TVs. Rooms have two single beds rather than a double, but this is quite typical of Sweden. The rooms are quite large and have irons and hairdryers. Bottled water is provided in the... More
