We stayed on night on the way north for skiing. Very nice and welcoming staff. Very good price which includes full breakfast and dinner in the evening. The dinner included soup, various sallads, main course, fruit, coffe/tea. Very nice room and general interior in the hotel - which used to be a prison until late 1960’s so there are some artifacts around this history. Highly recommended!

Clarion Hotel Bilan is housed in the former city jail, and the rooms, corridors and stairwells all feature pictures related to that theme - old protocols and letters, drawings and such. There's apparently even a prison museum downstairs, something I missed completely. I had a room on the top floor, which was of decent size and perfectly clean. It was well lit, bed was comfortable and bathroom was functional. Hair dryer and iron was provided, and there were wall sockets right next to the bed. One thing that sets this hotel apart from others I've stayed at is that not only is breakfast included in the room rate - but so is afternoon "fika" as well as buffet dinner. This is perfect when travelling for business purposes - especially during the autumn/winter season - but might not be so good for personal travel, if you plan to go out for dinner as a couple or something (since the included meals likely increases the room price). The provided food was nice, though the dining room was small:ish, meaning you'll likely end up sharing a table with another party. All the staff I encountered - both in reception, in housekeeping and in the dining room - were extremely friendly and helpful. Apart from the meal, parking behind the hotel is free (stop by reception and they'll guide you to the hotel's spots) and good WiFi was available throughout the hotel. There's a small gym and a sauna available for guests as well. All in all, this was a very nice stay. I'll definitely stay here if/when I return to Karlstad!

Even without the free fika (snack) upon arrival, along with bonus buffet dinner in addition to the breakfast service, I'd rate Hotel Bilan as an excellent value. Toss those feedings in, and you've got a winner. To be able to stay in an old prison with some history and thoughtful décor for the price of a boring highway motel makes this the no-brainer go-to choice for Karlstad.
