This is a standard business hotel which does what it says on the tin. The location is right next to the centre and short cab distance from the bar and restaurant district and the steam museum. Clean rooms, but very bland and not very cosy at all. Good shower but poor quality amenities. Choose the rooms at the back and... More

For a global standards this may be a 3 stars hotel, but it is a 4 stars for the region. First quality: very clean!!! It's simple, but very clean. For business purpose this is what I'm looking for. They have a clean workout room, good food.. nothing fancy but good! I recommend!

Great location, fast WIFI internet, good breakfast with many options to choose from, free water in room. No coffee maker in the room but you can get it from the restaurant. Staff can speak English. Room is spacious.

Nice place, well located near the down-town. We have no good restaurants around, but this not a problem, we felt the hotel restaurant can help if you need. People are awesome and very gentle, special the guys from parking. Room is big enough, but those rooms to the traffic in front of the hotel, have a high level of noise.... More

I usually stay in Sao Paulo and commute to Sorocaba, but thought I would try staying here for the convenience. There are some pros and cons to staying here vs other places. PROS...It is clean and pretty modern. Rooms have 120v outlets and good size showers. Floor was laminate instead of carpet, which I prefer. Plenty of room to unpack... More

Honest. That's the way to define Royal. It is not a luxury hotel, but it has all the things a business traveler needs: excelent bed, fantastic shower, trustable wifi connection and no noise (in upper floors). If you cannot go to São Paulo (just 90km far) Royal isd a good - but simple - option. And not expensive.
