This is a tricky one! The hotel is small, and I like that. The location is very central. Very good, indeed! When you enter the hotel, there is a small and ok lobby... Then you go to the staircase, and it is absolutely wonderful! It is, I would say, the centerpiece of the hotel. Lovely, quaint, old and charming. And... More

Our stay at the Hotel Royal Gothenburg could not have been better. We had been travelling in Europe for a month when arriving to Gothenburg in search of a hotel or hostel and Hotel Royal was the second place we tried our luck. Right away I felt like I was welcome there. The nicest receptionist ever (I think her name... More

This was our 3rd stay at this lovely hotel and it did not disappoint. I think they have refurbished the rooms since our last stay, so this was nice. The only negatives were we had a room overlooking the main street which was noisy and had a big hotel facing us that you could see in all the windows, also... More

This is the oldest hotel in Gothenburg, and it has been carefully maintained. We splurged on one of the larger rooms, which was large enough to have a king sized bed, a desk, and a sofa. The hotel is easy walking distance from the central station, the tourist areas, and bars and restaurants. The staff is welcoming. I recommend everything... More

The hotel is the oldest in Goteborg and very quaint, but not outdated. The staff spoke very good english and were extremely helpful with directions and restaurant suggestions. The breakfast was very good with eggs, meats, cheeses, muesli, waffles, etc. Every afternoon there was a fresh cake with coffee or tea for the guests. The room was small but fine... More

We stayed one night. The hotel is located in the center of the city. Parking house next to the building. 240 SEK per day. The room we stayed in was very nice with windows to the backyard. Only the bed was a little bit to soft. The breakfast was included and really good. Also you always can have cake, water... More

We had stayed at many modern hotels on this trip so staying here at the oldest Gothenburg hotel was a switch. The staff were very nice and the breakfast was very good. The bed was smaller than most, but we were so tired it did not matter.

I have stayed in this hotel a number of times and always been impressed, but today I needed to cancel my reservation after 18:30. The lady that took my phone call was very nice about it even though this was very last minute, I had already messes them about with this reservation but she remained friendly and positive. I will...

A very attractive and interesting hotel - the oldest in the city - nicely maintained in the old style, but with modern touches where needed. Our room was a bit on the small side, but adequate and comfortable. Solid walls and carpeted hallways dampened internal sound, but with windows open, sound carries through the narrow streets with 3-4 story buildings... More

The hotel was great, in an ideal location a couple of minutes walk to the train & bus stations, close to the shops, bars and restaurants. Only 15 minute walk to the Ullevi stadium. Free WIFI good breakfast choice and friendly and helpful staff. Will definitely stay there again. Thank You.
