There is a warm and welcoming atmosphere at this family-run hotel, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, and the room was comfortable. The hotel is conveniently located right in the heart of Gothenburg, and there are ample parking options directly across the street. When I have business in Gothenburg again, I will not hesitate to return.
Everything you would want and need is found at this ROYAL hotel... thank you for a GREAT stay. So welcoming, accommodating, kind, clean, quiet, helpful ... and much more such as the feeling of being a royal guest! You won't regret it and it is just a few minutes walk from the train station.
Clean & comfy room, very welcoming and helpful staff and good breakfast in a very well-kept, stylish and central property. I like being a regular in a place and this is definitely one of those places for me, and honestly, this stay has been my best experience in Sweden over five years staff-wise.
Also shared on a booking site: We cannot say enough good things about Hotel Royal. The decor was absolutely charming. The staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful throughout our stay, expecting nothing in return. The breakfast buffet was ample, fresh and high quality, there was coffee/tea available at all times, and there was cake in the afternoon/evening. The room was light and bright as well as spacious with high ceilings and a modern bathroom. We easily walked to all major sights and took the nearby tram and train. It felt like the most wonderful B&B, only larger. Additionally, there is a gorgeous spa just down the block (bring a bathing suit to enjoy the water features).
Really good hotel, excellent location, excellent staff, good breakfast, and so tasty cake available at the entrance! I also liked the decoration and design in the hotel. Only minor that there was no fridge inside the room.
We spent two nights here recently and out of 4 hotels on this trip, this hotel had the biggest room! I emailed before to ask for directions from the Central Station and received a prompt and helpful reply. It was near enough to walk, with two big suitcases (just across a square) but it was raining the day we arrived so it wasn't too pleasant. Our room was just above the reception; it was hexagon (or maybe more sides). We loved the space, in the room and the bathroom. Everything was clean and spotless. There is complimentary cake and tea and coffee in the afternoons, served in the pantry by the reception. I had the best cake here! Breakfast spread was more than adequate. We really liked this hotel, it has such character cos it's an old building. The only problem is there is massive construction just next door; I think there is a big building coming up. So from the room, you can hear drilling and hammering. It was okay during the day as we were mostly out, but the first night we were there, the work went on till 11 pm! Second night was better, no work ongoing. Just so unfortunately cos it was very loud, even with our windows closed. It could also be due to the fact that our room faced the construction site. Such a pity, but this is not the fault of the hotel. The guy at the reception told us that it'll be at least one year before the construction work is complete. So do bear this in mind; hotel wise, we have no issues at all, just the construction that is a real bummer.…
This wonderful hotel is centrally located near the Central Station (3-minute walk) and walking distance to the top restaurants, shops and starting points for boat and hop-on hop off bus tours. Although it is Gothenburg's oldest hotel, it is well-maintained and offers modern comforts including elevators and air-conditioned rooms, a welcome feature during the summer months. It is ideal for families and we stayed in their 2-bedroom family room which was very spacious. We enjoyed ending our days relaxing in their sitting room with complimentary drinks and cakes. We loved Gothenburg and would definitely stay here again.
Stayed here for a night enroute to our daughter's wedding. Classical hotel in Gothenburg handy for the centre. This is one of the oldest hotels in Sweden. The staff were friendly and helpful. Liked the little touches such as homemade cake being available in the afternoon. The buffet breakfast was excellent. Would stay here again when in Gothenburg.
Just loved this place. Clean, good service, great location, nearby parking, excellent breakfast, TV and internet worked well, large enough room, outlets everywhere, great breakfast. I won't be back but only because I probably wont ever get back to Sweden but I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone else staying in Gothen berg, Its a great city lots of food choices and shopping.
Outstanding service really clean rooms old but stately. Perfect location to walk to the canal then down to the shopping areas. Great free breakfast. TV and internet worked . Parking in the garage across the street. I highly recommend this hotel.
