Scandic Klaralven
Ranked #7 of 18 Hotels in Karlstad
Reviewed 10 April 2012

My family and I were traveling through Karlstad and stayed one night at this hotel in a family room that sleeps 3 people.
We arrived in the evening time and the receptionist was nice and helpful.
The room was nice and clean and had all the standard amenities. Free Wi-Fi in the rooms.
The hotel is located by Klarälven. At breakfast you could enjoy a nice view of the water. We chose to stay here because we didn't want to drive into the city center of Karlstad. It was conveniently located just off the highway, but not far from the center either (only 1,5km).
There's free hotel parking just outside which was great for us traveling by car.
An excellent breakfast buffet was included!
We would stay here again.

This is standard Scandic hotel, well located, close to the highway, with a nice view over the river Klaralven. The Karlstad city center is approximately one mile away. The Scandic concept is a bit like McDonald's, you know what you get. The extra spice here is a sauna and a small indoor pool. A good breakfast is also included. The room was very functional but rather small.

This hotel is functional and clean. We enjoyed being along the beautiful river.
The food was very good, with a huge selection! We loved having our breakfast on the patio with the beautiful view of the river. 15 minutes was not a bad walk into the center of town. There are bicycles at the hotel if you wish to use them. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They were very kid friendly with meals especially. There is a nice play area right in the dining area, for children. I would recommend staying here if you are travelling with family. It is not a posh hotel, but it is comfortable. We enjoyed the wireless in the room.

This hotel is perfectly placed for all who just passing by Karlstad - just few meters from E18 motorway. You do not need to go into the city and try to find Your already booked hotel.
Good location outside the city. But if You want to spend some time in the city, then choose the different one.
Hotel is placed in bungalow building, but no worry, there is not a cheap bungalow. Rooms are really comfortable, designed in modern Nordic design. Big wide beds gives You enough space to sleep. TV, desk, round table with armchair, this makes stay there really comfortable. In hotel is wireless internet, You do not need a cable to surf.
Bathroom - clean and comfortable. I really enjoyed hotel cosmetics. If You want, there is a pool inside, but I do not try.
Really good breakfasts. Big choice. Really big chice. Enough to be in the hotel for week and every morning try something else.
Great choice to stay. 100% recomendation.

The Scandic Klaralven is a standard functional business hotel. The hotel is bordered on one side with a river and the E18 motorway on the other side.

The location is a 15 minutes walk from the centre of Karlstad, where there are plenty of good bars and restaruants.

I was there for a football match and the hotel is a perfect location for the stadium.

As I stated the hotel is a good functional hotel. The rooms are neat and tidy, in a Scandinavian way. And all the staff was extremely helpful, the food was good. I can’t really find fault with the hotel, the only down side was the walk to and from town.

Enjoy your stay, just do not expect anything exciting.

Having stayed in Karlstad a number of times I stayed in this hotel for 4 days when I was on a business trip. The location is very convenient if you are driving as it is along the highway. The only complaint I had with this hotel was the restaurant. There was nothing wrong with the food but it was more like something you would get in a road side cafe. The service was almost non existent in the restaurant on the night I was there. The staff were more interested in the conversation they were having in the corner. In my opinion the one in the center of Karlstad is a much better hotel.
