“Cool hotel in the heart of Gothenburg”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Avalon is a very modern hotel in the very center of Gothenburg. Staff was incredibly friendly, breakfast included simply everything I ever wished for (healthy as well as unhealthy things, but very delicious anyway). The room was big with a very comfortable bed, cool design and a huge bathroom including a rainforest shower. We would definitely book this hotel again!!

We stayed 3 nights and since we booked it online we payed for two only, which makes it for a 3 night stay quite competitive price with a youth hostel.
We found it very practical located we passed it a few times during the day being able to go to the loo or leave our shoppings there.
The breakfast is really good. The roof pool is a bit a gadget but then again who expect a pool where one can do 50 m legs on a rooftop.
Service was friendly and everything is clean.

Who should go:
People who like a bit of luxury but do not want to spend an enormous amount on it.

Who should not go:
People who are looking for an over the top luxury service.

I've stayed at Avalon twice with my wife, and I'm left with somewhat mixed feelings. Our first stay was in a 5th floor room facing Vallgatan, and the second was in a 3rd floor room facing Kungstorvet.

The rooms were both very nicely decorated, spacious, clean and comfortable. The breakfast is awesome, the location is perfect, there is a valet parking and our first room included a dvd player and the full collection of Fawlty Towers. Nice touch. The beds are brilliant and the bathrooms are extremely fresh looking.

The third floor room had a strange open solution in which only the toilet and the shower was separated from the rest of the room; There were two sinks and a bathtub in the middle of the room. I did find the fifth floor room, where the bathroom was entirely separated, more comfortable, but, you know, I'm just a humble peasant. A minor moan about the bathrooms: There are gaps over and under the toilet doors, which means you will essentially still be in the same room as your roommate while going about whatever business you may have in there.

Our second stay was during a weekend, and it got very noisy on the Kungstorvet side where our room was located. There are numerous clubs right next to the hotel, and the music got loud as the evening went on. The windows are "soundproof" and do block out a bit of noise, but not nearly enough to prevent the feeling of trying to fall asleep inside a subwoofer.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Kungstorvet can get very noisy, especially on weekends.

rabiatix,

Thank you for your visit at the Avalon Hotel and your feedback about your stay with us here on Trip Advisor. We are constantly working on the development of both our service and our concept, we are a design hotel but with function, our 101 guest rooms and suites are different, and we hope you find a room that suits you. Hope to welcome you back to us soon,

Great hotel with art with a sense humor. After a long trip and lost luggage, it brought a smile to our faces to open our spacious room on the 6th floor, a nicely designed room with no right angles, to find a life-size metal horse with a lampshade on its head on our balcony! It lights up at night. Helpful and friendly staff, fabulous breakfast, and a beautiful rooftop terrace with a glass pool overlooking the city. Sunsets were beautiful. Right across the street from the hotel is the Saluhallen or food hall, with vendors, delis, small bars and restaurants. The hotel Is also an easy streetcar away to the botanic gardens - one of the largest in Europe.

Room Tip: Select a room on the top floor with a terrace and a horse!

We book initially for two nights, but decided to extend for a third night. We were upgraded from a standard room to what I believe was a superior room with a bath in the room, which was great for us travelling with a toddler who is accustomed to an evening bath. The room had big sliding glass doors to the street and the market hall which was very nice. Breakfast was good (though only alcohol free champagne due to licensing requirements). Nice roof top area with small pool.

If you bring a car and do not visit over weekend, be prepared to use the hotel's valet parking option (about SEK 350 per night) as the street parking outside is limited to 2 hours during business hours on workingdays. The valet parking is a good service though, car is returned with a bittle of water and some red ferrari candies.

Although there are lots if good (and a few not so good) restaurant options around, the hotel restaurant is definitely an option to consider. Our second evening, we decided to take up their offer on champagne and oysters before going to find our dinner restaurant, but the service (and, I must admit, the fact that the champagne glasses were filled to the brim) made us stay for dinner. I had a steak and my wife a risotto. Both dishes were very good, so the hotel restaurant is for sure an option worth considering.

The Avalon hotel is located very close to the city centre. Rooms are well designed, clean and spacious. Breakfast buffett is very good. Price for room was 1385 SEK which was absolutely reasonable. But keep in mind there is an extra charge for parking of 350 SEK per night. I think this is quite pricey.
One more thing to keep in mind when it cones to booking: we decided to stay one extra night. Booking the hotel and paying in advance via website is cheaper than booking when you are there.

Room Tip: You should ask for a room on an upper floor (noise due to people outside and current construction wo...

ulfmertens,

Thank you for your nice feedback here on TripAdvisor, we get very excited when we read that you as our guests are happy with us, it is our goal! Regarding our value parking we see it as an extra service and certainly there is the possibility to park relatively close to our hotel even on the streets, but the cost per day is relatively high in the citycenter of Gothenburg, but of course this is a choice to make for all our guests. When it comes to our prices, we are working as most hotels today, with daily prices, which are based on supply and demand, it will not distinguish between the different booking channels, so maybe demand had grown at just the dates you want to book further.
We hope to welcome you back as our guests,
