Nifty vibe & great value + 3 complimentary meals to boot!

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.

This nice hotell is as mentionned earlier situated in an old prison building. Following the concept of this chain, afternoon tea/coffe with snack is provided as well as the evening buffet, free of charge. This time I had other arrangements hence I couldn´t enjoy this treat. Rooms are cozy, and clean. Sleeping conditions are good, my bed was comfortable. In the basement there is a small gym and relax area with sauna. Also a small museum of the old prison service. Quite interesting. Further there is a parking area inside the walls for a reasonable fee. Ample parking spaces in the vecinity. I used the gym, and as it is equipped with treadmill, cross-trainer and a training bike and also some free weights, mats and large balls. This really filled my needs. Note in the pic´s the thick walls in the old windows. I´m also adding some extra pic´s from lobby and museum. Good value for money! I really recommend this hotel.

Well situated hotel, just in downtown and very clase to Karlstad’s cathedral and the rest of the places to visit here. There is a parking next to the hotel and it is free for guests. A good dinner is included free of charge as well as the breakfast. Rooms are not very big, but comfortable. Very good shower. The staff are friendly and kind. So, a very good option.

It was an old prison which served more than hundred years. It has a nice staff, big bright room with nice facilities. Breakfast saloon was too crowded with furniture for my wife's taste though. Walking distance to the city center and close to the train station. Good parking opportunities for cars. They have an interesting museum in the cellar that shows cells and stuff from the time when the building was a prison. It was a good and nice experience because of its historical environtment.
