I stayed in the Royal in August 2011 during a short business trip, coming from La Paz.
At least it´s warmer here than in La Paz was my initial thought, having arrived in Santa Cruz...
From outside, the hotel looked "OK" - but during my stay, I´ve found a number of aspects
which made me giving an "average" to this place.
The corridors were dark and extremely hot.
The room was large and old-fashioned. Nothing exciting.
Internet: It took me a lot of time and effort talking to the management to to finally get the wifi to work.
The hotel pool: a kind of joke. Looking good - but due to the leaves, it wasn´t any inviting to jump in.
Breakfast: very limited variety of foods.
The positive aspects had less to do with the hotel - but with the location and my preferences for working out while travalling:
In just a one minute walk, you´ll find a gym which is GREAT - not only for bolivian standards:
It´s a very busy place where you find lots of exercise machines for a full training!
In 5 minutes (walking) you´ll find a large supermarket; and in 10 minutes walking, you´ll find a
place with good food in the Lomitos de Hamaca restaurant.
If I stay here again?
Maybe - but only because of the gym; supermarket; restaurant which are in close distance.
