    Hot hot rooms! Air con or fans needed ASAP. Faded and dated needs updating & some tlc. 😟

    Great breakfast. Lovely staff. Comfortable bed. Secure parking a bonus when travelling with lots of baggage.

    Be aware this hotel has no air conditioning despite being in a hot part of Germany. The bedroom we were given was unusable and we had to check out without sleeping there. It was very hot weather, but this is not unusual for Germany in August.

    No Soya milk for my wife, a minor glitch in a very enjoyable experience.

    The hotel is extremely old - there are unpleasant smells even at non smoking floors. The rooms style made with no good taste and again - smells of dusty and old textile! At my room I saw blood at the wall close to the bed. I don't understand how they still keep 4 stars level.

    Hotel stuff was friendly BUT all equipment is SO old and low quality! Good thing is that the hotel didn't charge me for the booked week and I payed only the first night, which I spent there before changing the hotel.

    Location is fine for business travel but not if you want the picturesque. Smack on main road, but rooms are soundproof.

    Helpful staff, underground parking, good restaurant, science museums nearby, handy place to stop overnight if you're travelling through Germany with family.

    This is absolutely not a 4 star hotel! Really old and tired. Poor quality room and a bed that should have been replaced years ago. Horrible smel of sigaret smoke in the reception area. And the most annoying with the stay, wifi is not free! And when the time is up you have to go out in the reception to purchase more wifi time ... Hotel Royal is not a hotel for this millennium!
