Scandic Klarälven, Karlstad
The worst
The room was dirty with nail clippings and hairs on the floor. Service was close to non-existing. Will not be staying there again.

Convenient to the highway and scenic setting
I was looking for a hotel close to the highway between Stockholm and Oslo and this place was convenient. Breakfast was fantastic. Room was sufficient. this is basically a large motel that is riverside, so great to have breakfast by the river in a convenient spot.

Great for a family stop over
Great hotel with good facilities. Traveled with the family with small children that appreciated the play area, pool and child menu. Unfortunately the heater had some issues so the whole hotel was a bit cold (this was winter) but all in all a very nice stay.
