About Elite Stadshotellet Karlstad, Karlstad

Elegant 19th-century hotel on the banks of Klarälven River

A block from Stora Torget

Elite Stadshotellet Karlstad has a prime position by the Klarälven River, a minute's walk from the tree-lined main square Stora Torget, where you'll find the town hall and several restaurants. It's a 4-minute walk to shops along Drottninggatan, and 5 minutes to the train station.

Boat trips on the lake

At Värmlands Museum, a 6-minute walk from the hotel, you can learn about Värmlands' history. In summer, boat trips on vast Lake Vänern leave from the harbor south of the station, or you can even swim in the lake on the sandy beach at Bomstad, a 15-minute drive west of town.

A pub and free breakfast

Period and contemporary features blend neatly in the artfully lit reception, classic lounge, and cozy English-style Bishop's Arms pub. There's a gym and sauna, and the free buffet breakfast is served in an elegant dining room hung with paintings, or outdoors in warm weather.

Spacious rooms, free WiFi

The hotel has 138 spacious, smoke-free rooms and suites with high ceilings, free WiFi, satellite TV, and desks. Some rooms are decorated in a pared-back contemporary style, others in a soothing classical style, and some also have balconies.

Not wonderful

Elite Stadshotellet Karlstad, Karlstad
Great experience
Fantastic experience. Hotel is in great condition and the people were really friendly. Breakfast was great as well. Would definitely go there again. The only weak point was the foldout sofa bed - but that is a hazard of 3 people travelling together.

Comfy and Great Coffee
The bed and pillows were comfy. The room was quite compact with a view of construction equipment out the window. The hotel staff helped us find parking at the nearest public parking spot. Not too far to walk. The breakfast was the best part of the stay. Buffet style allowed plenty of choice. Coffee was excellent. Overall we would select this hotel and pick a bigger room with a view. With a few tweaks, this hotel has the potential to be a 5 star hotel.

Cinvenient, clean and quiet.
Was som distance to walk from the lobby area. Should be nice to have a room closer to the elevator.

No sleep in Karlstad
When we arrived I asked about an upgrade to a room overlooking the river and was told none was available. Our room was tiny and the street noise was truly and motorcycles racing their motors and playing music at execrable levels well into the early morning hours made sleep very, very difficult. When I mentioned this at checkout I was told there was nothing that could be done about it. On the other hand, my wife fell and cut her upper lip and the desk staff was very helpful in providing bandages. Breakfast was very good, but there were no English language newspapers and no English language television. Frankly, we were glad to leave this hotel.
