Hotel Royal, the oldest hotel in Gothenburg, is located in the very heart of the city. The original building was constructed on top of part of the citys old fortifications. The hotel opened its doors to the very first guests in 1852.
On entering the lobby, you will see our beautifully patterned stone floor, our much admired ceiling - painted by an artist whose great talent was not matched by his fame, and the marble staircase with hand wrought, iron banisters in Art Nouveau style. This welcoming first impression is confirmed by the the friendly reception at the desk, and the pleasant smell of freshly brewed coffee and baked cake. And so it continues throughout your stay - from a wonderful night's sleep to a delicious breakfast buffet.
The hotel is a calm oasis, yet offers immediate access to pedestrian areas and shops, restaurants, cultural events, parks and Central Railway Station. The Swedish Exhibition Centre, Ullevi Stadium, Liseberg Amusement Park and Göteborg Opera House are just a few minutes' walk away.
160 years of graceful tear and wear!
The Royal Hotel is the oldest in Göteborg. Guests have arrived and left here since 1852. This has caused a bit of tear and wear. In a nice way, we think.
We are convinced that it is the inside that counts. That is why we have spent most of our effort on the inside of the building the last few years. But when you have passed the age of 160, a facelift can be useful as well.
Between April 14 and March 18, we are renovating our facade.
