Scandic Klarälven3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This is a standard Scandic hotel with a very good location close to the city center and easy access from the highway by car. The hotel is a very long, if you get the room from the other end of the hotel, don´t get frustrated, just keep on walking.... The room was okay, a bit "oldish". Breakfast was very good.
The hotel is easily accessable from the highway, yet nicely located by the Klarälven river and not too far from the town center by foot. My room as clean and beds comfortable. I hade a nice meal at the restaurant, witch had a HUGE outdoor veranda overlooking the park and the river. Very nice! The walls were a bit thin and in the morning I was very disturbed by other guests waling in the corridor and slamming their doors. I also seemed that someone was pushing trollies down the corridor, not shore if it was housekeeping or due to some maintenance that were going on. Breakfast was very nice and I hade it at the outdoor veranda. Nice hotel but a bit worn. If you are staying here, don't forget your ear plugs!
The hotel was excellent with a great view of the river Klarälven. The service was very good and the room was very silent so we had a time of relax. In the morning we enjoyed a good and healthy breakfast.
Small room, loud noice from the hall to the room, brekfast was good, we had to ask many times for different kind of service, poor playroom for the children, no gifts to the childern, nice pool and sauna
As always, our Stay at Scandic Klarälven was totally O.K. We and our Labrador are all very comfortable in the Hotel Room with special bed for the Dog. Good Grill-dinner at the Restaurant in the evening. Excellent Breakfast!
Very nice hotel located near the center,we stayed at a family room with a great view of the lake.Good breakfast buffet,friendly Staff,and my kids enjoyed the swimming pool!My daughter took a bicycle trip to the center,thanks for the available bicycle free to use for the guests😊
Perfect situated a short walk from the citys center, very forthcoming receptionists. Needs work on their breakfast. Tasty and perfect meat from the kitchen in the evening, the waiter contributed to the cosy atmosphere.
We stayed here 2 times on our trip to Norway. The hotel is close to the highway but it doesn´t disturb the living here. The rear side is real nice with a view of the river Klarälven and also the possibility to take a walk on close to the river. The hotel pool is nice (but I could my self prefer som more degrees in it). Our second stay was a bit disturb of youngster since a bid floor ball tournament took place at the same time. It made it hard for our small kids to sleep. But it was not a catastrof and everyone with kids understand that they make noise ;-) You can easily walk to teh City center andthere find many restaurants. + Surroundings, great views and walking possibilities ++ Friendly staff, they did what they could to make out stay pleasant. +++ Sleeping comfort, the beds was really nice - Cool pool (according to me) -- A bit dirty in the corners and we found candy in the extra bed --- Noisy younsters (but this is hard for a hotel to control)
This is the second hotel that we stayed in our recent Scandinavia tour. We arrived in Karlstad after touring Stockholm and it was after 6pm when our tour group arrived at the hotel. The hotel looked a bit dated and stretched out over I think 3 separate buildings though it was only 2 storey buildings. The hotel is located closed to mother's nature, with lots of greenery, lake, wooden bridges etc which was great! Lobby was small and after collecting our key, we proceeded to our room. There was only one lift that was small and slow. Our room (180) was located towards the end of the 3rd building and we had to manovoure through the passage way and walked down a flight of stairs. It was quite challenging with our 2 huge trolley luggages. But we still made it! Our room was quite nice and clean though much smaller. Bed was ok and comfortable and with a window view overseeing the lake and greenery. There was no kettle or fridge (no bathtub too). Wifi was free and connection was ok. We had both dinner and breakfast at the cafe. The cafe was cosy and nice though and both were buffet styled. While the food items were not extensive like the others, generally the food was quite nice. We especially liked the pork that was offered during the dinner, was very well cooked and yummy! Service was good as used plates were clearly promptly and staff were friendly. We took a good walk after dinner outside along the lake and it was tranquil and serene. If not of the sudden rain, we would love to walk further and longer. (it was also raining the next day morning which we could not walk) Location was not near to town or to any shopping arcade. But if you like nature and want to get out of the life in the bustling city, this maybe a good place for you to rest well. Overall, our stay here was satisfactory generally!
It was the first trip with our son, and as such. We had many questions prior to choose a hotell in Karlstad. The staff was really helpful and we got all the relevant information, and help. The hotell itself is perfectly situated if you drive (easy to find from the motorway) and just a short walk away from the centrum. Rooms with view to the river are recommended.
