lunch buffet for free, good breakfast and excellent located for business. They had some troubles with assigning the invoice (due to new software), but solved the problem in time. Nothing more to say, perfect for business.
Due to my work I stay a lot of nights in hotels. I prefer the Clarion chain, always comfortable and pleasant. The Drott hotel in Karlstad is my absolute favourite - because of their amazing staff. Tonight they surprised me big time. Look at this picture! It may be a bit silly but I always have my toy companions with me. When I returned to my hotel room tonight the Little Ones were waiting for me together with two new friends, who had sneaked into the room during the day, made with great care out of small towels. Thank you so much housekeeping staff. So sweet of you. You are awesome. I was speechless for a moment. Tusen tack!
I've stayed twice at this hotel whilst on business in Karlstad and both times the service has been excellent. The room is always clean,fresh and well equipped, the breakfast is good and with many options. Great central location also.
The building dates from the early 1900's but has been tastefully modernised with larger than average, comfortable rooms. The hotel offers a buffet evening meal within the room rate - as most nearby restaurants aren't cheap this is very welcome although the food is mostly average with little choice apart from 'take it or leave it' - alcoholic drinks are priced above average (even for Sweden) - but iced water and good coffee are available free. The breakfast was plentiful although of similarly average quality. The reception staff were very welcoming and helpful - if you are arriving by car stop outside the hotel on arrival as you'll need instructions to find the designated car park, a parking permit (charged to your bill at 130 SEK per day at Nov 2016 rates) and a code for the door to the hotel side of the car park. Central location - most worthwhile sights are within a mile.
Got to Karlstad for just one night stop. Easy to find, public parking short walk from entrance. Nice people at the reception. A afternoon meal is served included in your rate. Very good breakfast, allright room and good location very close to the railway station. Just remember that finding a place to eat in Karlstad a late, Sunday evening in autumn.....that is not easy. Go for the afternoon meal! Allright bar and quick service all over.
I was feeling very good when i stay here. So, quite happy with Drott. Especially the location is very good. of course the breakfast is extremely good. I will strongly recommend my friends to stay here.
It's a bit pricey for what it is, a hotel in Karlstad. But it was great. Great spa, great gym and close to bars and restaurants. The room was fantastic and the breakfast was beautiful and in a really cool inneryard.
First of all, it is 2 minutes walking distance from the railway station. It was such a luxury as we didn't have to lug around our luggage and drag it for long. It is an old style boutique hotel renovated with modern amenities. Loved the lift which had an old worldly charm and we preferred that over the modern lift also available on the right. It is also located very close to the city centre and so the river, market place, library all are walking distance from the hotel. The room is well spaced, well lit and well ventilated. It was so nice and cosy that we didn't feel like leaving the place. The breakfast, evening tea and the dinner are complimentary and have a good menu variety. Though it has very limited options for vegetarians, we still enjoyed the place. Karlstad is also very beautiful and dream like that you would want to spend most of your time here.
When you want to start your day with an excellent breakfast, stay in a wonderful room, near the station, but quiet, then you go to the Hotel Drott. It can be recommended for a private or for a business trip.
The Drott in Karlstad was a wonderful hotel and exactly what we were looking for. After spending several days in the wilderness of sweden camping we were looking for a luxurious hotel. The staff was wonderful and could not have been more friendly. Truly a great point of the hotel. The room was beautiful with amazing beds. The bathroom could have been bigger but I suppose the architecture of the building restricts the size of the bathroom. It wasn't "bad" but it wasn't amazing either. Overall a minor point. The breakfast buffet was spot on. Lots of choice and fresh food. Also excellent coffee. Overall the Drott was a perfect hotel for a weekend away and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting karlstad. Quick side note: The location could not be more perfect. Smack down in the middle of karlstad. It's a mere 3 minute walk from the trainstation.
