When driving from either Oslo to Stockholm or from Malmo to the North, this hotel in Karlstad is the perfect stop. No need to search for a place to eat, due to the included buffet in the hotel - which actually surpassed our expectations: the buffet food was fresh, healthy and varied. Staff was nice. We had a quite large room on the second floor, which was quiet enough. Definately recommended.

This is an old prison that is converted into a modern and comfortable hotel. It is situated only a few minutes walk from the city center, so it is perfect for exploring Karlstad. And after a night in prison, you are released the next morning after a good breakfast. We were there now for the second time, and me and my partner in crime may go there again later on.

This old prison is situated just outside central Tingvalla in Karlstad. Quiet, kind service, spacious rooms and parking inside the old prison wall. Nice breakfast and they serve evening meals as well. They lack some facilities, but have a small gym (didn't try) and a cosy reception where you can buy a drink or coffe. Short walking distance to most things in central Karlstad. Our main concert is the climate. We've stayed both in spring and winter, and it's a bit stuffy inside, with poor aircond... Read more

Nice little hotel in the very heart of Karstad. Kind of family feeling with no distractions, mostly business travellers and construction workers. Evening meal is nice addition, you don't have to got out to find meal.

I did not know what to expect of a former prison but was pleasantly surprised because rooms were big and efficient with ironing board and iron plus fridge. Airconditioning was missing and we had almost 27 degrees Celsius. Windows could be opened, so that helped. Bed and mattress are fine. Enjoyed afternoon coffee, dinner buffet and breakfast. Staff was very friendly and efficient. Every Thursday afternoon/evening classic and special cars/motorbikes gather at the boathouse near the canal, not far... Read more

Very nice place, very nice and helpful staff. Very good food. The place is a very interesting one, the location is strategic for any tour of the city, you can reach any place walking. We appreciated the evening meal as we had not to go out to look for a place where to eat. The quality of the food eas very good.

Clean attractive hotel that has excellent rates and offers half board. Both dinner and breakfast were great. The hotel is centrally located and also has an interesting history. It used to be a prison.

The Booking was easy and worked online even on same day. The Service was friendly and helpful. Breakfast & Dinner were included and were both very satisfying. The old prison was very nicely integrated in the thematic ambient of the hotel. We absolutely loved it.

We have stayed at seven different hotels during our trip to Sweden with rooms priced at 800-1300 sek per night and this hotel was the best. Rooms recently renovated, hotel is clean, they have their own museum and quite some extras such as free meal in the evening and in the afternoon. All in all a great stay.

When the sky is grey, this hotel looks dark and old (the building is old, by the way !) and without a reservation, it is unlikely that many people would go in and ask for a room. I had my reservation, so I went in and was welcomed in a quite strange way, by a lady who doubtlessly did her best, but did not convince. But thereafter, I really started to appreciate the hotel, its location and staff and my clean room at the ground floor. As hotels are so expensive in Sweden, I have a hard time giving... Read more

Really liked this hotel, in an interesting old prison building ( make sure you visit the basement museum ), but with 21st century facilities. Used as a stopover en route to the north, easy to drive to, option of parking in the public car park immediately next door, but as slightly nervous travellers with foreign car we chose to use the hotel‚??s own parking which was 95 SEK for the night. Staff friendly and helpful, good sized room, comfy bed, stylish shower room with walk-in style shower, spe... Read more

Highly recomended. I have stayed here a few times. The place has lots of history since it is an old prison. The hotell is close to the centre. The staf is good and helpfull. The museum in the basement is recomended. There is a parking outside the hotell which is free at weekends next to the hotell. If you want to park the car under a roof you can choose to pay for parking inside the walls of the hotell.

We loved that they re purposed a prison as a hotel. Our room was a little inconveniently laid out, and it was quite a tight squeeze to get from the window side of the bed, past the television set, and to the rest of the room. There was plenty of room for an easy chair and a desk on the other side of the bed and the bathroom was spacious. We were able to open our window widely enough to get plenty of air and a fan, not needed, had been thoughtfully provided. Both the dinner and breakfast wer... Read more

Centrally located and with a cosy athmosphere we enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The breakfast buffet and evening buffet was ok, too. Small and narrow restaurant. No A/C in the room, only a fan, made it in our opinion a little too warm during the night. Good beds and nice rooms, though. We also liked the lounge group outside, where one could sit in the afternoon and enjoy the sun. The prison musum in the basement gave the place an extra touch.

We stayed here for 3 nights in July. Chose the hotel because of using Clarion Collection hotels in the past and have found them good value. This particular one was very clean, centrally located with free parking at the hotel or at the nearby public car park. Meal times were on occasions very busy, with trouble finding a seat. There is another room that is used, but this means walking with your food through the reception area. The basement is preserved as a prison museum, as the hotel has been c... Read more

At last, an hotel with real character! This is a delightful stop over. An old prison given a very tasteful makeover. The museum in the basement is unusual, holds real interest and is very well presented. Breakfast is up to the usual Nordic Hotels standard and the included evening buffet is exceptionally good making a stay at this hotel extremely good value.

Perfect location with an interesting history. Clean, good service, free internet, free non alcoholic drinks, wsmall wellness room and to enter the Sauna you have to inform the reception 30min in advance. The small "Prison" museum in the basement is definitely something you like to see :-) Overall a good place to stay

The rooms aren't the most interesting, but that's about the only negative thing about the hotel. From the moment we walked in after a long drive we felt like home. The girl that greeted us had prepared some food from the evening buffet since we would arrive after it closed for the evening, that is great service! She followed up to our room and helped with our luggage. Next day we had a good breakfast. Plus for not having those small butter containers that generates a lot of waste. Also plus f... Read more

Had a single room in the 4th floor. Room was nice and comfortable. Very silent. Sleep quality was very good. Breakfast was not as expected. Orange juice tasted terrible and the bread rolls tasted like they were baked several days back. Something was wrong with the caviar at the buffet. Service was impeccable. If breakfast is improved it will be a very good hotel.
