“Pleasant Stay at Van Royal”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

Although not a 5 stars standard, the Van Royal offer clean rooms with nice bathroom and free internet.
Breakfast is included and although not fantastic it is adequate with hot food included (omelet, patatoes....)
The location is good and if you like walking it is just 30mins to the citadel and the souq.
Personel are friendly even when their English is poor.

Had daughters wedding reception here and experienced first class service and superb dinner for 200 guests. General manager and catering manager extremely helpful and accommodating. Would definitely recommend staying here ,too. Thoroughly enjoyable with comfortable and very clean accomodation of high standard.

I had an excellent dinner at the Van Royal late January. The cuisine was a superb mix of local and regional, along with a decent wine list, and (on a Thursday evening) in an ambience of live Kurdish and Arabic music. I had visited the hotel earlier that week for a business meeting, and found the staff to be courteous and friendly. I warmly recommend the Van Royal for its services, and look forward to staying there on a future visit to Erbil.

New hotel, 15 minutes drive from airport, huge rooms. Turkish bath, sauna, swimming pool in the basement, free for guests use. Really good hotel, in the same category as International or Nobel hotels.
