Clarion Hotel Plaza

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I have stayed in this hotel several times and they have been pleasant stays owing to the friendly staff, strategic hotel location and their hearty breakfast selection. My recent stay was for an anniversary and the hotel granted my special request.

Stayed 5 nights at Clarion and enjoyed everything. From the restaurant, the people, the room and the jacuzzi upstairs. It is very close to the train station and shops. Would book a room anytime i'm in Karlstad. :)

I stayed at the Clarion for 7 days for business purposes. Excellent service, comfortable and clean rooms and the stand out was the food! Aesthetic presentations, taste, timing and portions for three main meals and refreshments made a daily visit to the in-house gym a necessity. The staff are to be commended, attentive yet non intrusive, friendly and always helpful. The location of the hotel is of great benefit for its proximity to the train station as well as to the shopping centre. Whilst situated on a lower floor (level 2), I often took the glass elevator just to get additional appreciation of the closed in courtyard and it's attractive Christmas decorations (this is a delayed posting).

Always a friendly and nice person in the reception. Never a problem that cannot be solved. The breakfast gives you a good start and has a broad variety. Always a pleasure to stay at Clarion Plaza! Excellent!

I had a very good stay at Clarion Karlstad, attentive and friendly service during the whole visit. The room was beautiful and the bed was excellent. Varied and fresh breakfast. I would definitely return.

The overall location of the hotel was good and rooms were fine. The big problem was that the rooms that overlooked the internal courtyard got noise on a night from people drinking in the bar resulting in a phone call to reception at 00:15 to ask to stop. The following evening there was a large function in the same area and it was like having the band in the room with you. I would have loved story have a chat with the guy on the trumpet.

I have been coming to Karlstad for over ten years on business and stayed at several hotels in the early days, but in the last eight years or so I have always stopped at the Plaza if they had availability. I love the peaceful atmosphere and professional way it is run, free parking as well is always a bonus.

This is located just spitting distance from the Train station and the hotel is also sporting a great brand restaurant. The rooms are quite smalla but it makes up for it by the comfort of the beds and the cleanliness of the bathroom. The open-air atrium in the middle of the hotel that hosts the breakfast is also really nice. All in all I´d say this is the best place for the buck if you travel to Karlstad by something other then airway. It´s central and has all of the things you might want in form of service and information.

Miserable place windows don't open inside and no ventilation. Don't think about food because the restaurants arent open on a Sunday and there is no room service. Staff are OK but not too responsive and breakfast is not filled up

Nice staying with helpfull staff and modern, well cleaned room. The day before busload of asian tourists made a mess in the early breakfast I got told by my co-traveler who arrived one night ahead of me.
