The Royal is located on the edge of old town Stuttgart, a few minutes walk from S- and U-bahn lines, and a few minutes more walk to the cobblestone streets of restaurants and stores in the center. So it is well-located.
The hotel itself is clean and cared-for, though some of the installations are a tad dated.
And if you like a hard mattress, you'll love your sleep at the Royal.
Our room was on the front of the hotel, which faces a rather busy thoroughfare at night -- the bars next door and the foot traffic to the bars in the pedestrian promenades nearby created a fair amount of noise, especially with the windows cracked (the AC unit in the room was quite a weak performer).
So if you book a room, you might want to request one on the back side of the hotel.
Other than that, the only other disappointment was a shower that featured rather comically-weak water pressure, and a separate shower hose in the bath that simply didn't work.
The hotel features a breakfast, paid for separately. There is a good bakery just down the block, but it is closed on Sundays.More
