As an American with not too much experience traveling abroad, I was looking for a hotel that was clean, safe, charming & Swedish, and a good value, with breakfast included. I really chose well with the Hotel Royal. It is a very charming building. Easily accessible to the train station, and my room was almost perfect. The room overlooked the cute courtyard of the hotel, and yes, it was compact, but very functional and not too small. It was quiet and pleasant staying in this hotel. I did stub my toe once or twice on the bathroom threshold that is a little awkward, I think other reviewers also mentioned this. But, that's really minor in my book, it was cleaned every day and had a comfortable single bed.
Best of all really were the hotel staff. They were so friendly, and nice, and the lady that first checked me in made sure I was aware of all Gothenburg had to offer. I got two restaurant recommendations that turned out to be the highlight meals of the trip. Not to mention the fantastic breakfast buffet they serve. The breakfast rooms are full of comfortable seating and all of the food was fresh. I was so pleased to have so many choices for breakfast - including fresh, tropical fruit! Finally, the homemade cake every afternoon was such a nice touch. I would love to return and bring my family, and I will be sure to stay again at this hotel.
