Scandic Karlstad City

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is in a great location. Very short walk to the downtown area of a fantastic city. It's a very short walk to get to the "downtown" area, with lots of statues and beautiful buildings to see. I did not have dinner at the hotel itself, but there are lots of options in the area. The room was warm, clean, quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was great with hot and cold options. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here 4 nights in October. Nice hotel, big rooms, great location. Convenient access from main roads and good size parking garace. Close to city central. Very extensive breakfast. Very helpfull staff.

Very nice hotel in karlstad. Great people working in reception and cleaning. Breakfast was good. The rooms were clean and good size. Didn't hear my neighbors which is always appreciated. Close to city center.

We enjoyed the possibility to get a nice dinner at the hotel. The breakfast was very good and the personel kept tables clean. I would have apreciated possibility to charge my electrical vehicle during the night

This is nice hotel with nice, very accommodating and helpful crew and staff. Elevator is very small. Food is typical. It is within the city and some tourist spots are just walking distance. Spaceous room and toilet.

The hotel is very much like all Scandic hotels. The standard is good but not luxurious. The room was clean and breakfast buffet good although a bit crowded at periods. Parking under hotel with not to big parking lots. Walking distance to restaurants and shops in city center.

We found traces of earlier guest among the bed linen at bedtime and garbage and spots on the floor. Obviosly the linen wasn't changed and the room wasn't cleaned. We got the linen changed and next day the room cleaned to acceptable standard.

Great hotel if you need to be in the city center. A plus is the parking under the hotel. The rooms ar quite big. The hotel during the week end was full of small children so if you want quiet breakfast it is maybe not the best place..

The hotel had: Friendly staff. Good room. Nice and clean. Good location. Close to city. We was visiting Karlstad with friends to watch Lars Lerin museum. We stayed only one night. If we are going back to Karlstad we will stay on the same hotel again.

A very good hotel in the middle of Karlstad. Excellent service. A little bit tricky with the parking. The hotel have a parking house but it gets filled up quick. If your late find a parking somewhere in the city. Very good restaurant.
