My husband and I took a three day trip to Göteborg over the Easter weekend. We stayed 2 nights in the Hotel Royal and couldn't have been happier! The hotel's front door is right on the corner at Drottninggattan and was only a 3 block, 7 minute walk from the train station.
The breakfast was lovely, and included cereals, 3 different kinds of eggs, meats, cheeses, breads, yogurt and milk, tea & coffee and even 3 different kinds of cookies next to a bowl of Easter candy!
We had dealings with 3 different desk clerks and all of them had smiles on their faces and were anxious to do whatever was needed to make us happy.
We had a room on the first floor which was easy to get to climbing the wide stairs. Our room was clean, updated and comfortable. There was art on the walls and matching bedspread and curtains on the two windows which faced a little courtyard with outdoor seating (we were in room 239). The bathroom was clean and had a large shower stall. My husband couldn't figure out how to get hot water, but with a little knob-turning we finally got it.
Every afternoon in the lobby they put out a fresh yummy cake or brownies for the guests, and there is hot water to make tea or instant coffee.
Hotel Royal knows how to please its clientele and get rave reviews! This is one of the better hotels I've stayed in, and I've traveled around the world.
