The location is excellent: squarely in the middle of the old town and a stone's throw from the railway and bus stations for those using public transport to explore the Bohuslan coast and other adjoining areas. The staff were very helpful, including with suggestions and bookings for restaurants as well as travel arrangements. We stayed in the tower, in one... More

This is a wonderful little hotel. Starting from your arrival, you are welcomed by friendly, helpful, and jovial staff. The rooms are small but tastefully decorated and do not have that usual cramped feel of a smaller hotel room. The wi-fi connection is excellent. There is a free cake-selection in the foyer every day which is most unusual but most... More

Hotel Royal has a great family run feel to it. Staff were always friendly and very helpful. It's the only hotel I stayed in on this trip that explained where everything is and how things work in the hotel, and also gave opinion and fact around typical tourist questions. The room was clean and more than adequate with free wifi... More

We traveled to Gothenburg for our son's wedding. We stayed at the Hotel Royal for 10 days. The hotel truly added to our wonderful experience in the beautiful city of Gothenburg. The hotel was built in the 1800's and still has all the charm and ambiance of an era gone by. The stair case, the molding, etc. were just beautiful.... More

Although I was staying in the hotel over only 1night, I have to say that I had very good experience in royal hotel. First of all, the hotel has the most convenient location, only a short walk away from central station. Also it is 1 min away from shopping street and walking distance (7min)from liseberg amusement park. It was quite... More

We went to this hotel since it was a good location as we found out. The price was not low but I think average for this location. The room was nice, quite large, clean and functional. Wifi, breakfast and some the/coffee was available free of charge. The staff was very helpful and obliging. The parking opposite was also very convenient... More

My bed broke at the hostel I was in. I looked for a place at 1:30 am and went to Hotel Royal. Was I impressed. The hotel is in a great location for dinning and shopping. The staff were great and the price was easily worth the value. The breakfast alone makes this a perfect stay for a family or... More
