    Great place for a family.

    The hotel was clean. It was located near the river. It was an easy walk to the downtown, a park, the river area for swimming. The breakfast in the morning was amazing with so many options. They even had a kid breakfast area with a big TV and toys.

    Nice hotel in lovely Karlstad

    It was a short stay to visit nearby ancestral home. Hotel was lovely and economical for a family of 5. The breakfast smorgasboard included with the room was incredible.

    Fantastisk frukost, bland den godaste jag ätit i Sverige. Personal och service i toppklass. Vi åt även en mycket god och prisvärd middag på hotellets restaurang. Vi kommer definitivt tillbaka.
