I stayed at the Hotel Royal Gothenburg for two nights in August 2016. I was hosted by the West Sweden Tourist Board.
The hotel is a five minute walk from Central Station.
Upon entering the hotel, my attention was drawn to the beautiful painted ceiling above the reception desk.
After check-in, I decided to have a cup of tea and some homemade cake in the lounge before going up to my room. You can make yourself a complimentary hot drink at any time, but the cake appears in the afternoon.
The staircase was very grand.
I stayed in an economy single room. I thought that the room was tastefully decorated and was spotlessly clean.
The room was small, but the large window meant it was light and airy. The bed was comfortable.
The desk area was large enough to fit my Chromebook, my phablet, camera phone and my paperwork. The free WiFi signal always provided me with a fast connection, both in my bedroom and in the lobby.
I had requested a quiet room. My request was fulfilled, as my room faced the inner courtyard.
The bathroom was a good size, with a large window, which was the same size as the window in the bedroom. As bathrooms in most hotel bedrooms don’t have natural light, this was a bonus. The botanic toiletries were lovely.
The breakfast buffet was very good.
There was a wide selection of cold meats and cheeses.
There was a waffle machine. I decided against using it, as I thought that there was high chance of me making a bodge of it, e.g. overfilling the machine so the batter leaked out. It wasn’t such a sacrifice as there were ready prepared pancakes in the hot food selection.
I’d recommend the Hotel Royal Gothenburg. It oozes charm and character, combined with high standards of quality and service, and it’s in a central location.
