“A design hotel where the design works”
Reviewed 12 June 2012

The Avalon is a bit like a more personal version of a W hotel, minus the pretentiousness. We had a "luxury" room with large windows and a big balcony looking out over the roofs of the market hall towards the old city moat. That balcony was shared with a life-sized statue of a horse with a lamp on its head; quite special!
All in all, there was hardly anything to criticize. Everything and everyone worked very well, was curteous, relaxed and helpful, even when the front desk was a bit overrun on Sunday morning with departing guests and a failing billing system.
The hotel is full of quirky details such as this. Original artworks adorn most walls, the furniture is comfy and stylish, the view from the large bathtub was impressive. Towels are embroidered with the Avalon logo, the B&O portable audio system was nice to use on the balcony, the 2 hotel music compilations on CD to be used with the B&O TV were also miraculously found in our valet-parked car upon departure (plus a bottle of water) as a gift. The beds were extremely comfortable, the rooftop pool was something to write home about with its glass front reaching out over the town square below. Breakfast was generous and varied (and included). The hotel restaurant is well rated, and the numerous outside tables and sofas extremely popular with the local crowd on a sunny weekend afternoon.
The location is perfect (but then, Gothenburg is really quite small) for culture & shopping. Swedish labels Nudie Jeans, J Lindebergh, Tiger of Sweden, Filippa K all have flagship stores close by.

Room Tip: I found it worthwile having the luxury room with a balcony - so nice to have this private outdoor sp...

The hotel is located perfectly when staying in Gothenburd just to have a nice-walk around- shop a little-have good food and wine-stay. The location is surprisingly calm as resturants and shops are just a step out the front enterance. Our room was huge (superior), clean and fresh. (several pillows for those who like that). The staff are young, trendy and helpful. I actually became sceptic; are they really this nice? I thought, but yes, I think they are.
One of the best things was the breakfast! We sat there way too long eating.. And that was possible when Sunday's breakfast is served until noon - which is great!

Great location. Exciting decor. No two rooms are similar. Very trendy. Great service. And I mean every word of it. I travel 90% of my time across Europe and no other hotel I stayed at in this price range (London, Paris, Berlin, Stuttgart, Bristol, Amsterdam, Eindhove, Toulouse, Stvangar, Stockholm, Hamburg, Dusseldorf ...........) has even come close to this in terms of value for money and service. Highly recommended for any one visiting Gothenburg

Room Tip: Choose moderate rooms if you can. Also ask for square view. If you are not content with what you hav...

We recently stayed in the Avalon. Husband had business meetings nearby & I joined the trip for some sightseeing. We enjoyed our stay.

Room was typical size for hotel rooms in Europe. They had put together two twin beds to makeup our bed. The bathroom was well stocked & the water pressure was good. We noticed after a few days that the floor of the bathroom was heated :-). Room was clean. Fixtures & decor is modern style.

They even had a ice machine a few doors down from us. That's something I don't see a lot of while in Europe.

Breakfast was included. It was buffet style but everything was well spread out so there wasn't that beehive effect you find in other hotels. They had from brownies to salmon for breakfast.

Location. The hotel was centrally located. Just a block or so from the river & a couple of blocks from the cathedrale - both always a good way of orienting yourself in a new place. The hotel is right in the midst of a huge shopping area so plenty of restaurants right outside the door.

The Museum of Art is about a 15min walk from hotel.

I truly dont know if they had a fitness center. I walked a lot while there.

Given the opportunity, I would return to the same hotel again.
