We were just stopping by for one night and thought the hotel provided good value. We had a car, which made getting to the hotel easy as it is slightly out of town, convenient for us as near the highway. We didn't really get a chance to test out the facilities, but the breakfast provided was very good.

While visiting my girlfriend in Norway, we decided to slip over to Karlstad as a little getaway. As usual, I researched all options and settled in on Best Western Gustaf Frodding. Bottom line, this place is hard to beat. From check-in to departure, I was pleasantly surprised. The basic "economy" room was cozy, meticulously clean, and as comfortable as can be. And, get this, you can make a pillow selection from the display at check-in and they'll bring it to your room! Granted, the hotel is at the edge of town, but the bus stop is directly in front, so it was a snap to slip downtown. Oh, and the complimentary breakfast buffet....you absolutely cannot help but be amazed. And all of this at a most modest price. Look no further...this is it.

The hotel is not the most luxurious or fancy hotel around. It is however extremely cozy and have a warm atmosphere. The rooms are well planned and come across as clean. Beds are very comfortable and the linen smells fresh and new. The breakfast is great with a midsized buffet containing buffet standards as well as Swedish specialties. To me, this is how a hotel should appear.

Their prime selling point, comfy beds and yummy breakfasts aside, is their staff. Competent, welcoming and services minded professionals who are willing to go far in order to make your stay a pleasant one. No doubt this will be my “home away from home” when I’m in this area.

Me and my son stayed here for the yearly chess event Karlstad Open, which was played at the hotel. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and service-minded, the room was adequate and the food OK. The breakfast was very good. The relax-area is small, but very nice. And the price was right.

On the downside: The dinner buffet in the evening did not impress us. The hotel is not very modern, and there is some noise from the road. The parking area was littered, and the smoking area is at the main entrance, which makes it hard for sick people and uncomfortable for non -smokers to enter the hotel.

I actually didn’t stayed at the hotel this time, but we had a superb Mediterranean buffet with wine at their restaurant Emilia. The staff was friendly. They have also a nice swimming pool, so you can take bath if you want. The hotel is situated 5 km from Karlstad, so you need an own car or taxi to get here. Last time I stayed here it still had his former name “OK Motor hotel Karlstad”.
