“Nice hotel in good location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

Had planned to stay one night while passing thru Karlstad on a roadtrip, but after seeing the room and getting a great reception from the wonderful staff I decided to extend my stay by another night.

The hotel is old, but nicely renovated with all modern amenities and wonderful tall ceilings. The location could not be better, next to the train station for those who arrive by rail, plentiful parking across the street and within easy walking distance of attractions and just around the corner from downtown with lots of shopping and restaurants.

The free wireless internet and very nice free dinner buffet included in the price made this one of the highlights of my trip. Highly recommended.

As a norwegian I got a price over what was on the net. The hotel is situated by the train station. Trains do make noice. Between the station and the hotel there is a main road and there is a buss park in front of the station also. If you don't need to sleep I guess it's all right. I need the sleep and will never come back.

The hotel is right across from the railway station and next to a shopping mall. My room was comfy, clean and quite spacious. The hotel in general has a nice atmosphere and the staff was very friendly.
I found the hotel very good value for the money as there was a free dinner buffet with everything from waffles to pickled herring and chocolate cake
There was a kettle in my room as well as a small library with books in Swedish and Norwegian. That was a nice touch. Free wifi available as well.
I loved that there was plenty of breakfast items available really early in the morning as I had to catch a train at 6 am. .

This hotel is very good value for the money since a very good dinner buffet is included in the price of the room. The hotel is close to the railway station and its only a short walk to the city with shops and restaurants. The hotel offers a bar with a nice atmosphere that also seemed to be well frequented by locals. Rooms are standard size with a flat screen television. There is an electric water boiler in the room so you can make your own coffee or tea. The bathroom had a shower no bathtub. Breakfast was plentiful as a buffet and also served in the room with the glass roof connected to the bar as was the dinner. Wifi internet was available in all rooms for free.

Most buildings in the station area of Karlstad are realtively modern; the Drott is one of the older ones at about 1905.Thre are still some interesting stone carvings around the keyhole shaped street doorways,and some fine ironwork around the lift,which puts its larger modern counterpart around the corner to shame for speed and quietness.
We had a superior room on the fourth floor,with plenty of space,two armchairs, and a fine chandelier with real light bulbs-no compact fluorescents anywhere in the hotel.The beds are Swedish style with two side by side sprung bases under thin mattresses with no plastic covers-very good. The corner location means traffic noise with QUADRUPLE GLAZED windows open ,but quiet with them closed.There was a fan,and teamaking facilities.The reception staff were efficient,and interested in our welfare.
The hotel is especially good value in view of the free evening buffet-one traditional meat item,one fish,soups and many cold choices.
