Every time I visit Gothenburg, I want to stay at Hotel Royal if possible. The staff is super nice, the breakfast is excellent (especially now that I can have my caffe latte in the morning), they have a comfy lobby, a good selection of tea and always a fresh home made cake to enjoy while reading a glossy magazine before...

We booked this hotel solely based upon the rating on tripadvisor. The hotel is nice in an old meets new kind of way. It does not strike me as a kind of a business hotel, though it has is really convenient location.Breakfast was nice and had had most of what is needed.

A very welcoming hotel, serene and old world in the centre of the city. Daily cakes and coffee are pretty irresistible. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the price was right. We took a cab from the airport, but were delighted to find how close to the railway station we were when we left Gothenberg. Oh by the way,...

We loved our stay. It was a really charming hotel. Very clean and well located, close to the centre of town and the train station (great for day trips). Great service. Great breakfast. Enjoyed the coffee lounge plus a daily cake. Staff really lovely to our four month old baby. Would stay again.

My sister and I stayed 7 nights at the Hotel Royal last week. We flew in from the US to Copenhagen and drove up to Gothenburg to spend time together and visit relatives. We were given a lovely, large corner room and it was ready a little early. We were able to park our car at the park house down...

Stayed at this hotel for two nights last weekend. The hotel was fully booked, but apart from breakfast, you would not know it. The room was lovely and clean and at the back of the hotel facing the road. Fairly quiet apart from the street cleaning machine first thing un the morning. Large choice for breakfast, probably more ideal to...

While traveling on business I found myself in Gothenburg for the weekend and at this little gem for a few days. The front desk team was amazing. Booked me for an incredible afternoon at the Hagabadat Spa which is a MUST DO and went above and beyond to make my stay warm and welcoming. Breakfast was delicious and easy. The...

Breakfast. Breakfast, breakfast. Or, should I say: frukost! Ok, I think you get the point: I am a big breakfast person, and this hotel had almost everything imaginable, including Swedish goodies, like different types of pickled herring. When it comes to the rest of the hotel, it was very enjoyable. It was an older building, lots of character. Free coffee...

Very charming hotel centraly located in Gothenburg. Nice room and great breakfast. Cleen rooms and welcoming staff. Some noice from the street (saturday night), but I guess that's what you'll have to expect when you're at a very central location.
