I stayed at this elegant hotel for 3 nights. It's located a few steps off the city's main shopping street (Kungsport Avenue). Since I spent 80% of the 3rd day in the hotel itself I think I can say that this is one of the most peaceful places one can stay in in Goteborg. Althought the tram passes by the hotel's side every now and then, one rarely feel its presence. The hotel has a cosy restaurant (it carries a Michelin star by the way) that offers a good full breakfast buffet. People who work there all smile and really do enjoy what they are doing...
I stayed in Room 7, a deluxe room with a very cute Red theme. ALL rooms are Feng Shui approved and the furniture settings in there give you a sense of serenity day & night. There's a big terrace with wooden flooring that you can enjoy a morning coffee on during the summer months (I even enjoyed it out there a few days ago when it was 13C).
The ice machine is just outside the door, and I know this sounds too trivial, but I loved the oval ice pieces that icemaker made :)
If you walk out of the main entrance about 30m to the right then another 50m to the left, there's Systemborget, a very interesting wine store that carries a huge selection of wines (and beers from all EU breweries). To the left of the entrance is a good pharmacy that opens its doors early in the morning, and some really nice coffee shops along Kungsportavenyn.
If there's one thing I would want improved at Avalon, it would be room service dining... where not much is offered on the menu except for 1-2 types of sandwiches and a salad.
They say the Elite & Park are luxury stuff, but I walked by them in the evening and I just didn't like their busy entrance with all the pedestrians blocking the cars' paths... plus the buildings looked like they were Dr. Hyde's laboratory ! :)
Avalon:I don't think I'm staying anywhere else when I come back to lovely Goteborg.
