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.
