Lots of good stuff written about this hotel so let's cut to the chase. The rooms are in the small side compared to other 4* Gothenburg hotels. The toilet is all of two steps from the bed but that's okay because everything else is great. Staff are helpful, kind and interested. The breakfast is great - lots of choice. Lunch... More

Spent a night at the Avalon hotel last week, booked on the last minute, booked a superior room. I'd actually been to the hotel before, but only to the outside seating of the bar in summer. To start from the beginning , we arrived at the hotel, via car, and I went inside to check where we should park -... More

Very nice and stylish rooms, staff is really helpful, friendly and going the extra mile (special thanks to Emma from Recepiton who is really attentive). Location is brilliant, in the center of Gothenburg with a lot of Restaurants / bars in Walking distance arround. Helped a lot with sending promotional material upfront to the Hotel and taking care of it... More

Comfortable, very close to the city center and served by many public transportations. I enjoyed the stay mostly because of the big room, commodities and breakfast (really international, even with croissant).

This hotel was fantastic! Sadly our stay had been overshadowed as our van had been recently vandalized and we were distressed at the time of check in. However, the staff was lovely, friendly and tried their best to accommodate us to the best of their abilities. The corridors were cavern like and filled with modern and eclectic art pieces.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Avalon. I like the layout of the rooms. They are quite modern. The wifi works great. The breakfasts in the morning are also excellent!

Central location, cool design. The breakfast could be much better, spirulina and acai breakfast shots is really not what I need after a hard night. I need good tasting bacon, scrambled eggs made from eggs, and tomato beans. But other than that, a good hotel.

Dear Janetteroed, Great to read your review at Trip Advisor. We appreciate thoughts about our design and illumination. Thanks! I can definitely understand that you wish good scrambled eggs, bacon and hot tomatoes on our buffet breakfast, it serves every day along with such as Spirulina and Acai.

Avalon resides perfectly in Gothenburg for experiencing the city by foot. All the major shopping sites are very close by, and some other sites are within walking distance if you enjoy exploring by foot, like the cozy Haga area and Casino Cosmopol. We had a Deluxe room, which was spacious, large bathroom with both bathtub and shower, and extra points... More

We've stayed several times in Gothenburg & decided to try the Avalon because of its central location & a 3 for 2 nights offer making it a better deal than everywhere else. We had a fabulous room overlooking Saluhall & the area around. The room itself was really spacious & actually had a multi gym folded neatly into its own... More

Hello! We booked two rooms but had only one on arrival. We also got completely wrong price then we booked, which was corrected on arrival(I´m a contract customer who stayed at this hotel often for many years)The staff "forgot" to inform that they had scaffolding ouyside the more expensive room, which among other things meant that all windows was veiled!...
