If it wasn't for that lingering aroma

Royal Hotel

Royal is an old and frumpy place, painted in a garish cream, however somehow it manages to retain some appeal.

While there's no elevator, rooms are actually very good, all with ADSL, TV, a safe, mini bar and air-con. However, there seemed to be a pungent smell lingering, a kind of musty odour that was indescribable -- but don't worry, you'd get used to it. The Royal shares the swimming pool area with The Rex and it also has a tennis court, a nightclub and a restaurant. All rooms have a reasonably sized balcony, but no furniture to make use of it. Overall, a good option for the price, if that mystifying scent has drifted away.
