This gives us the opportunity to welcome each guest individually and show that it still is possible to practice attentive and personal service. Our ambition is to make every guest feel welcomed while staying with us, which is why we keep what is genuine, real and personal close to our hearts.

The oldest hotel in Gothenburg

Hotel royal is the oldest hotel in Gothenburg, dating back almost two centuries. The first cornerstone of the stone building was laid in 1850 and two years later Sundbecks Nya Hotel För Resande (Sundbeck’s New Hotel for Travelers), which eventually changed its name to Hotel Royal, opened up. In 1980, the Oddestad family took over the hotel and it has been managed by two generations since. We take great pride in conserving the hotels historical atmosphere and have through careful restoration been able to preserve the patterned stone floors, the beautiful ceiling paintings, the stuccos, the high baseboards, the parquet and the Art Nouveau staircase with hand-forged banisters.
