This hotel is about 25 percent cheaper than those in direct view of the train station, but only a couple of minutes farther to walk, being located on a quiet street. My room was small but pleasant, with a comfortable bed and chair as well as an excellent fast-switching TV system. There was even an ironing board and iron in...

We've stayed at this hotel twice now and will definitely stay here again when we go back. This is an extremely charming, well-maintained, and unique hotel right in the center of Gothenburg, walking distance to the train station. Super friendly and accommodating staff, clean and quiet rooms, and a hearty free breakfast. They even have free coffee/tea/cakes in the afternoon...

Every single staff member is always friendly. Boutique hotel with charming interior and uber-clean rooms. Delightful breakfast and perfectly located near the station. The competition doesn't even come close.

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...
