Hotel history

In 1870, when the hotel was first opened, there was access to materials, skills, and expertise that we can only dream about today. Marble, hardwood, and chandeliers as well as stuccos and ornaments created a special atmosphere and contributed to the way that Stadshotellet in Karlstad still looks like today. It is all about true quality and craftsmanship!

Back in the days, the hotel was one of the largest and most beautiful hotels in Sweden. In 1904 electricity was installed and a few years later each room was fitted with heating pipes and each floor with a toilet. That was regarded as pure luxury – finally the commodes could be removed once and for all.

In 1905 when the agreement to dissolve the union between Sweden and Norway was signed in Karlstad, the entire Norwegian delegation stayed at Stadshotellet. 

Many guests have returned year after year to Stadshotellet in Karlstad. One of them, the famous poet Gustaf Fröding, always sat at the same table in the dining room enjoying a glas of arrack punch while he gathered ideas to his poems.

Over the years, the hotel has undergone continuous renovation and updates. We have been careful to let quality rule every step of the way, as we would like to keep the hotel’s charming character for another hundred years. All areas in the hotel have been carefully designed to keep its character and yet remain functional.
