About Elite Stadshotellet
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 it's character and yet remain functional.
Since 1984 Elite Stadshotellet is owned by Elite Hotels of Sweden.

Positive: The atmosphere, clean and nice rooms, the view by the river and the friendly staff.
To improve: We got only one tiny bottle of soap to use in the shower, and two bottles of body lotion. When you are two persons in a room and both want to have a shower twice during the stay, we ended up without any soap. Would prefer a soap- container on the wall.

Tack Per, kul att höra att du är nöjd med din vistelse. Just denna sommar önskar vi naturligtvis att vi kunnat erbjuda AC då det varit ovanligt varmt ovanligt länge. Vårt ventilationssystem har jobbat väldigt hårt men tyvärr inte lyckats till fullo. Önskar dig välkommen tillbaka! Vänligen Anna Björkenstam Wedberg Elite Stadshotellet, Karlstad
Positive: Upgrade our room, The Sven Ingvars Suite was perfect! Dinner and breakfast was perfekt :)
To improve: The outdoor workers, they started kl 7 o’clock and stop for breakfast. Better to start after breakfast !
Thank you Karin for your feedback! Happy to hear you enjoyed our Sven-Ingvars suite and had a nice stay with us! Sorry to hear you got disturbed by the road constructions outside. We’ve heard that they need to work in the morning because of the very warm weather during the afternoon, but of course we hope they do it as quiet as possible. Hope to have you as our guest again at Elite Hotels Best regards Anna Björkenstam Wedberg Elite Stadshotellet, Karlstad
