History of the hotel
First Hotel River C was constructed in 2013. However, there has been a hotel at this location since the 1970s, a building that was purchased in 2010 by four entrepreneurs with a local presence in Karlstad.
In 2011, Karlstad CCC opened its doors as a new landmark. With its outstanding riverside location, the centre is a great place for meetings, large and small.
When the present hotel opened in February 2013, the hotel restaurant opened to serve classic and flavoursome cuisine.
In February 2015, the hotel became part of the First Hotels portfolio.
