The Royal has friendly staff with warm, clean rooms. Single rooms actually have single beds! Free snacks, coffee and cake for all. My only complaint is that the breakfasts are distinctly unimaginative. The best bit is probably the home made muesli.

It's a charming hotel within a walking distance of many attractions and the oldest one in the city. I spent a weekend in one of the superior single rooms. The room was small but clean and the bathroom was modern and functional. The king size bed was super comfortable and the fourth floor corner room facing the inner yard was...

I have now spent 15/20 nights in this hotel. It isn’t the most modern or the most trendy but it is very comfortable and friendly. Single beds are the norm in traditional (and not so traditional) Nordic hotels and that is the surprise but I will always return here as I feel at home and enjoy the stay. Good showers....

I was recommended Clarion Post and Radisson Blu Scandinavian due to the location and found this little gem. It is very close to main shopping and eating area as well as public transportation, yet, the place is very quiet. No view from the room and the bathroom was very small but those things are nothing considering cozy room and comfy...

The hotel looks splendid, and you get a very nice welcome when entering. The rooms and toilets were clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was tasty and plentiful. The location of the hotel is very convenient close to shops and restaurants.

We arrived at the oldest hotel in Gothenburg having driven from Stockholm and realised that I left my wallet in a petrol station 4 hours away. With 30 miles range left on my car, no money and very little option we parked up in the car park over the road and checked in. Eleanore greeted us and was helpful and...

Description on website truly represents what you will be getting. Welcoming reception. Though oldest hotel in Gothenburg, interior is in immaculate shape, and rooms are neat and tidy. Slept well, with good beds. Bathroom is small, with tiny shower, but all very modern and squeaky clean. Breakfast was excellent. Only downside I can think of is that view from room...
