“Comfortable and central”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Hotel Royal is conveniently located in the middle of Gothenburg, close to restaurants and shopping. Its staff is friendly and helpful and our room was clean and comfortable, if a bit on the small side. The breakfast buffet is average and a bit cramped when the hotel is full, bit otherwise nice. I'm rating this average based on what we got for the price paid - I do have a feeling that we overpaid, it being the Goteborgsvarvet-weekend.

Bonus for free, fast and hassle-free WiFi.

The hotel is easily accessible by car, with reasonably priced parking available literally metres from the main entrance.

I found this hotel through trip advisor and picked it based on location and price. I wasn't disappointed! It's a 5 minute walk from central station and a few minutes from restaurants and shops.
The staff were welcoming as I arrived. It reminded me more of an old English hotel rather than a Swedish one. My room was great, it's the first double bed I've come across in Sweden. The room was clean and tidy, they even had blackout blinds.
I had breakfast included in my rate but to be honest I would give it a miss if you have to pay extra. The choice is limited, fresh water melon, eggs and cereal.
I would defiantly stay here again!

There many hotels in Gothenburg, but not many good ones. Most of the cities hotels aspire to nothing and achieve it. whereas The Royal, hidden away in a back street only minutes walk from Central Station and the heart of Gothenburg provides a welcome and endeavours to deliver good service with comfort.

The staff cannot be more helpful even offering advice and knowledge on the area. the hotel gives the appearance of being small but very traditional and is well furnished and clean.

As is the modern way breakfast is a help yourself treatment with the occasional staff member appearing to replenish and clear. No mini bars in rooms but you can obtain a warm beer or wine and selection of snacks from reception ( in fairness they probably don't serve you from th display but find will find you a cold beer if you ask - I just never asked !

This is without doubt the second best hotel I have visited in Gothenburg - and I have stayed in most. Certainly it provides the best value and service.

The Hotel Royal is right in the city centre, only 200m from the train station.
The building is a beautiful 1850s building that is up to 21st century standard. Fast Wifi Internet, good desk, nicely designed rooms.
Breakfast is excellent, staff are very friendly and helpful. Definitely a hotel to come back to.

Thşs hotel is in the heart of Gothenburg. It is very close to central station, big shopping mall and the most popular avenue of the city. Building itself is pretty old and rooms are small. Hotel was pretty clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

I just had an over-night stay in this hotel, but this was already sufficient to get a good impression of its highlights. The building is old, but carefully and lovely set up. Very cosy atmosphere. I had a single room which was really small, but with everything you need for a short stay. The bathroom was tiny, but with a ground level shower which I like a lot. Great breakfast buffet, with many different items of high quality. Very caring and competitive staff. The hotel is right in the city center, so there are plenty of options if you want to go outside.

I enjoyed and will come back -that's my entry.
Positive: kindness of the staff, nice breakfast area, with warm colours. Small but comfortable lounges. Nice rooms, tough some can be small. Coffee-tea and cakes are availableall day by the reception. It's the first hotel of the city -if you look for something truly swedish, don't miss it.
Negative: one wing of the building faces an ugly car park (north-west).
Prices are in the range of fine hotels in Goteborg, an expensive city, considering Swedish average.

Room Tip: Get a room facing north-east (slightly better view)
