I had a wonderful time at the Avalon! I stayed three nights for the ISU World Figure Skating Championships in a double deluxe room.
My room was beautiful! It felt more like the bedroom of an upscale loft rather than a hotel room. My room had travertine floors, a small balcony, floor to ceiling windows (with a view of the city rooftops), smart furnishings, and very nice linens. Everything was so tasteful and in the traditional Scandinavian style. My bathroom was stylish and modern. The room and bathroom could either be brightly lit or dimmed. My room was immaculate and a nice size (not too small by European standards). I had plenty of room to move around and hang my clothes up and stow my luggage in the closet, so nothing was "laying out" in the room. My room was extremely comfortable and relaxing. The lobby area and restaurant were also both well decorated. Elevators were very convenient to my room. There is also a rooftop pool, but as it was snowy when I visited, I did not go up to see it.
The staff was extremely helpful and professional. More than once, they went above and beyond to help me. For instance, I asked the concierge a question about using the tram. He provided me with a map of the tram routes, marked my stops for me, gave me the schedule of when the trams I would be needing would come by, and made change for me to pay for the tram. All of the staff was this helpful in any request that I made. The breakfast was excellent as well. A nice assortment of both hot and cold items and the servers were nicely attentive, friendly, and accommodating.
The hotel is very centrally located in a beautiful area of Gothenburg. You can literally walk right out of the front door and you are in the main shopping district. You are just steps away to walk along the river or down the central "Avenyn". If you need to go further, one of the larger tram/bus stops is just next door. This however was neither noisy nor dirty.
I travel quite extensively and I typically stay in five star hotels (e.g., Four Seasons and Ritz-Carlton). My experience at the Avalon is right at the top. The room was superb and the staff excellent. By far, one of the best hotels in which I have stayed. If I am ever in Gothenburg again, I would definitely stay at the Avalon again.
