After trawling tripadvisor reviews on other hotels I took the plunge and booked Royce Hotel because of the great reviews and was not disappointed. It's located just out of the city but easy to jump in a taxi into city ($6-$7) or a tram. Fairly quiet for a city hotel. Looks are deceiving as it looks like an old pub from the front but when you walk in the door the WOW factor is there with a sweeping staircase and gorgeous furniture. Rooms are great, just like the pictures, we had a balcony room but you need to stand on your toes to look over the brick wall but I guess this adds to the quietness. Staff were fantastic and very helpful. Highly recommend and also dine at Dish as the food was great and lots of local business people dine here so book!

They have depicted a unique accommodation experience by creating a hotel that is distinctively different from any other. ... more less
