My 2nd visit here after my last review, and I came back. Of course I came back after I was upgraded on my first visit to Room 1 the Penthouse Suite. But that was not the only reason I came back again.
Sadly this time no upgrade but still the whole experience at Avalon, from the friendly greeting on reception to the comfort of the room as well as the great location in the city means that this will remain my hotel of choice for all visits to Gothenburg. Thank you and keep up the good work, please don't change!

Enjoyed a Thursday evening with the wife. Very busy in the city at the time but we got upgraded to a room on the 6th floor. Fast check in, friendly staff. Room had great views and great decor. The bathroom was spotless and really well laid out, you could relax in the bath and look out over the city. Highly recommended to stay there. Did not try the outdoor terrace pool as was too cold in the late September time.

The Avalon Hotel certainly deserves its high rating. I cannot praise the staff enough for going the extra mile to make our stay a special one, down to picking up our rental car from where we´d left it and parking it in the hotel. The breakfast was one of the best I´ve ever had in a hotel, the room is designer-chic and very welcoming. I´d recommend it, despite its price tag.

We had a good stay though it is pricey for what you get. The shower curtains are a bit natty and could easily be replaced by a screen or a wet floor shower room. Some toiletries are provided but no conditioner so be warned! I had to go and by some. Staff were really helpful and the rooms were very clean though the writing desk was broken and a lamp didn't work. The rooftop pool was fun! Breakfast was fine, nothing to write home about but perfectly acceptable. I'd probably not stay here again, mainly because I didn't feel we got value for money.

When travelling to Gothenburg you must stay her. Perfect situation in central city of Gothenburg. Perfect staff! They are always so nice and helpful. The hotel has a very nice restaurant and bar where local people meet in the afternoon. In summer time you can swin in the pool on the roof facing the square. I can only find two weak points. No fitness facilities in the hotel and the televisionssets are a little old in the rooms.

Room Tip: All dobbelrooms are excellent but the singelrooms they might be to small.

We stayed here this past weekend and had a very nice stay. This is a interesting and fun design hotel where no details have been overlooked. I was worried it may be a little "designy" for us, but it had a very cozy feel to it. We enjoyed the lobby nook with the open fireplace and even took a dip in the outdoor (rooftop) pool. The location was perfect for us. However, be aware of the fact that when you are booking a superior room you must specify that you want the open bath. There are apparently two superior categories and we felt this didn`t come across so clearly as we were booking. We were a bit dissapointed when we got there and realized this. The rooms were nice and comfortable though.

Oh! And the bar? AMAZING! These guys love and cherish their craft and make wonderful drinks. Some of the best drinks we have ever had!

Avalon is a very good hotel with an excellent and central location

The rooms are nice. The basic rooms are "good enough" whilst the premium rooms are a bit funkier with say a bathtub in the middle of the room. I went alone for business however, so found this upgrade to be more tailored towards couples than business guests. I also found the room to be very quiet with a comfortable bed. That said, it felt a bit more tailored towards non-business customers as the work space is very small and right next to the cold air-con outlet. That said, they also provide free, fast and reliable broadband. The rooms, like the hotel in general, is quite "cool" with a zen style interior design. I like it, even as a business traveller, but again, this would probably have been even more appreciated if I'd have travelled as a couple.

The breakfast was stellar and so was the room service. Whilst breakfast is included, I found the in-room breakfast charges quite steep.

They have a rooftop pool which is pretty cool, but unfortunately not a bar at the rooftop. The bar at the ground floor is well known in Gothenburg to be one of the best places for a drink - if they could start serving these on the rooftop as well I'm sure this would be a massive hit.

The service level was in general very good as well with friendly yet relaxed staff.

In essence, if you're going as a couple this should be great. If going on business its still very good, unless you plan on spending a significant amount of time in your room working.

Previously I have stayed at a few different hotels in Gothenburg including Radisson, but for approximately the same money I very much prefer this hotel.
