We have 8-10 holidays per year and the Hotel Royal is the first we were unable to find fault, we stayed 3 nights at the end of November. The hotel is spotless without any marks or stains anywhere. We loved the room with the door opening out and use of the old fashioned key, no sound from other doors slamming closed like in other hotels. The Christmas decoration were unique and placed throughout the hotel not just the reception area. The breakfast was fantastic especially their speciality the scrambled eggs and being able to make our own waffles. The staff were also beautifully dressed, plus were always helpful and polite. We thought the best feature of the hotel was the message when exiting the lift, the message changed per the time of day. My only slight dislike was have two single quilts on our double bed, this is a personal dislike which is probably a cultural issue with me. The location of the hotel is also excellent being near to all venues in Gothenburg. Congratulations Hotel Royal you are a great example to other hotels and this I believe is largely due to not being part of a large hotel chain, stay independent. It was old style class.

Hotel's Favorite
We usually stay in Hotel Royal, a perfect hotel in the center of the City, near to everything. The breakfast is lovely and the staff is so service-minded. We hired a conference room too and it suited us to a T. I can highly recommend this hotel. Just note on weekends you might want a room facing the court if you need the extra peace and quiet.

Loved our stay in the Hotel Royal. From checking in at midnight to checkout all the staff were helpful, efficient and friendly. The hotel is well located for the city shops, central station and trams. The decor and Christmas decorations were lovely. The rooms were cosy and spotlessly clean.There was an excellent choice at breakfast and the availability of tea and coffee all day and the afternoon cakes were a nice bonus. We would not hesitate to stay here again. It was a treat to stay in a privately owned hotel.
