Beautiful and spacious
This hotel is lovely. Very open, clean, and comfortable. The Large bathroom with jacuzzi tub was so nice after walking the city for hours each day. The beds were comfortable and the service was great. Breakfast was included and was a large variety of food from cereal, croissants, and toast to scrambled eggs and pancakes. The pool is nice, albeit cold. The grounds are beautiful as well.

8/10 Very good

I really enjoyed staying at Villa Royal, it was clean and staff were friendly. However, at night you could hear the room next to you and it could become very loud, making it hard to sleep.
