Our room for two nights was spotlessly clean! The hotel staff were so helpful and one nice young lady spoke English. The FULL free breakfast each morning was delicious! A complimentary cocktail with appetizer was provided for us on our first night. There are MANY great restaurants nearby that can be reached by walking down the pedestrian only street in... More

It's a bit like stepping back in time when you come here, but that's not necessarily such a bad thing. It's in a great location, right in the heart of the city, walking distance to all the sights, plus they have a free shuttle bus that will pick you up and return you to the airport, all very positive things....

We were staying at a nasty hotel a few blocks away and moved to Hotel Royal Palace. It was such a relief to get a room here from the previous hotel. It's new and modern with great decor. Rooms are spacious and we had a nice balcony. The location is absolutely perfect. There's tons to do right when you step... More

We stayed here as a group. If I had a choice, I would not stay here again. First off, the hotel lobby is impressive and inviting. There was a small band there playing music when we arrived, however, once we arrived, they tried to change the rate to almost double. Our rooms were awful. There was absolutely no ventilation such...

It's back to the 4th floor of the classic Royal Palace in Zona 1 for the fourth time. This time,#409 a corner room, is huge and has something relatively rare in moderately-priced accommodations here-- a King sized bed. Most hotels in this range we've stayed have two double beds and that is also available. Royal Palace is located right on... More

From 1999-2005, I used to stay at the Royal Palace all the time when it was managed by Best Western. My wife and I returned there right before Christmas and we were incredibly disappointed. No longer associated with Best Western, the hotel is now shabby, grungy and the hotel staff indifferent. The room was dark (there was only one incandescent... More

The Royal Palace and Pan American were among the few hotels that survived the extended period during which Zona 1 was down at the heels and dangerous. The fact is that it is for us the place to stay in the Historic District. Located right on La Sexta, it is also a great location for strolling with the thousands of... More

The beautiful lobby and restaurant of the hotel made us want to try a stay in the Royal Palace. Of course the location is excellent too, right in the middle of a pedestrian only shopping street, near the Central Park. Our experiences with the hotel are a bit mixed. To start with the positive: nice large parking lot and parking... More

I was very pleased with my experience at this lovely hotel. The lobby and restaurant are beautiful and remind me of the days of glamor and class in world travel. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed. The bathrooms are large and clean. I had plenty of hot water and good water pressure. I was very happy with the Salamander... More
