An independent hotel, Gothenburg's oldest. A warm and welcoming atmosphere. I had a room towards the backyard and it was so quiet. Could sleep with both windows open. Lovely room, great bathroom. Also two common living rooms by the reception where we could all meet for a drink in the afternoon. Walking distance to the railway station and to great... More

From the moment we entered this hotel there was a feeling of comfort and homeliness. It is centrally placed for all that you require. It is the oldest hotel in Gothenburg but furnished in a modern style in keeping with the building. No detail is overlooked, from the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff to the great array of breakfast... More

We were very pleased with everything in Hotel Royal. It is only 5 minutes easy walk from the railway station. The staf at all times were pleasant, and they carefully listened to our questions, and gave good answers. The breakfast was excellent - choice at all levels. Bedrooms more than adequate - we had small standard.

My second stay in this amazing hotel. Cozy, very clean, beautiful and antique-furnished, quiet and well located in the center of Gothenburg. The single room was lovely and despite being small, very convenient. Good and free Wi-Fi. A great advantage is that the window can be opened. Delicious breakfast buffet with yummy Scrambled eggs and pancakes. In the afternoon free... More

Just spent 4 days at this little gem of a hotel with my husband in central Gothenburg. The room we had was large and facing the courtyard which meant it was exceptionally quiet. The decor is very typically classic Swedish and really has charm with the added comfort of good beds, a flatscreen tv and free wifi. The service was... More
