“'Ave A Look At Avalon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Wow! Wow! Wow!

Just got back from the beautiful city of Goteborg - after watching my son play in the Gothia Cup.

Hotel was perfect in every way. Designer inspired rooms. Friendly staff. Great breakfast. Superb location. Unbelievable roof terrace. Awesome pool.


There cannot be a better place to stay.

Loved it.

You won't be disappointed.

Our welcome wasn't very nice, the room wasn't ready even at 3 (finally at 3:30) and the reception staff left a bad impression. They also didn't seem very eager to change this impression later during our stay.

Fortunately though the hotel itself was very nice! The location was excellent, we liked our room, breakfast was great and plentiful.

The room had a very nice view towards the market hall. It was one of the rooms with bathtub in the room. Overall nice, could be a bit bigger though. Well equipped, modern and in good shape.

Would definitely recommend this hotel, but keep your expectations low regarding the reception staff.

Dansku,
Thanks for your feedback here on TripAdvisor, it means a lot to us, and helps us to constantly deliver a wonderful experience for our guests. We are very pleased that you enjoyed our hotel, the design, comfort and especially our breakfast. However, it is very sad to read that the hospitality at our front desk did not meet your expectations, it's obviously not our goal. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back, and then show us from our best side even when it comes to our level of service at the reception.

Sincerely

Mia - Marketing department @Avalon

Lovely bright room with loads of space to move around. Complimentary slippers, bath soaps, bottled water and chocolates which are a nice touch.

Breakfast was delicious and plentiful

Location is perfect for getting to know the city, Right in the town centre, within walking distance of main attractions, trams and restaurants.

Only disappointment was that the pool is only open between 12pm and 6pm - You do ask yourself what use is that to anyone!!

Dear KateJenn,

Thanks for your feedback here on Trip Advisor for the Avalon Hotel, lovely that you liked our hotel. The reason for our roof pool opening hours are that to other times of the day is reserved for our guests in our Penthouse Suite.

Hope we can welcome you as our guest again soon!

Best regards

Avalon is a great hotel, from arrival to departure the service was top-notch. Bright rooms with blackout curtains so sleeping through the Swedish summer nights is not a problem. The bed, breakfast and the location in the middle of the city was superb.

Will come back!!

The Avalon Hotel is without question the best located hotel I've ever stayed in. The bus from the airport drops you directly opposite and that is only a taste of its central locale to the city of gothenburg. Seriously folk the hotel is walking distance to everything and is slam bam in the middle of it all but in a good way. It is super quiet in your room but from your window you can see all the action, the super cool eateries, the hipster shops and the beautiful swedes. The room is a great size, plenty of room and well appointed but top billing has to go to the super comfortable bed and the three deliciously cosy pillows. The staff were super helpful as well, so all in all we really rated this hotel.

Probably the best Hotel we have ever stayed in. Great central location, walking distance to shops and transport. We stayed a room with a balcony and the outside horse lamp. Sensational view of the city, and the horse is funky. Exceptionally clean room with the best bed I have ever slept in. The pillows (all 3 of them) were sensational. Staff very very friendly and helpful. Great breakfast. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Avalon and would love to go back. 10/10!

Room Tip: Definitely get a room with a balcony and preferably one with the horse lamp...sensational

Really enjoyed stay here. Room 43 - views out over the front and the deli hall and eateries opposite. Couldn't be better placed. Our holiday company (Nordic Visitor - fantastic) had arranged inclusive valet parking - otherwise 365SEK - but car is returned with chilled water to the hotel door for you. There is some limited metered car parking in direct area.
Good size room, great bathroom with sep areas for bath/shower. Bulgari toiletries, robes, slippers, free choccies and water. Kettle, mugs. Room safe. Just don't understand why almost every hotel we stayed at in Scandinavia tour (12 of them) had such appalling lighting - terrible for packing overnight!. Also another of the weird glass bathroom doors that offer limited privacy - again, very popular over there.
We ate opposite at 'Bee' and had a huge chicken salad and non alcoholic beer each - total bill only 418SEK . Breakfast in the hotel was wonderful -everything you could ask for, including baskets of vitamin pills and pain killers!
Had to rush off next day so only time to squeeze in a 'Paddan' boat tour just a few minutes walk away on the canal - worth every penny to see the highlights of Gothenburg and learn a little of its history. What we saw walking around the area of the hotel showed it was well placed for eateries and people watching and the whole city centre in Gothenburg has a wonderful feel to it - which the Avalon Hotel seems to really capture.
Only mild irritations were reception staff trying to refuse our Nordic Visitor hotel voucher and expecting us, initially, to pay for our stay. Also crane working directly outside our window from 5am to 7am which reception staff claimed was unexpected, but as it was dealing with their roof area this was hard to believe. An apology would have just soothed things - we weren't the only only ones to mention this.
