Overview

Cool design, a hot bar and warm staff create the perfect temperature at this hip boutique hotel

The Lowdown

Hip but not haughty, the Avalon is a design hotel—which means every detail was carefully planned. The 101 rooms are paragons of mod minimalism and have bathrobes, slippers, flatscreen TVS, and, in some cases, a bathtub in the center of the room. The same care is lavished on drinks at the popular bar and the Swedish specialties in the restaurant. Guests who love the modern décor and funky vibe linger on site despite the temptations of Göteburg’s nightlife all around them.

In the Area

Smack in the heart of Kungsportsplaten, the famed nightlife district, the Avalon is perfectly situated for exploring the city’s music and bar scene. But there’s plenty to see in the daytime, too. The hotel is within walking distance of Baltespannarparken, a popular park that hosts a skating rink in winter; the Göteborg City Museum; the Maritiman Museum on board a fleet of historic ships; and the Göteborg Opera. It’s also deliciously close to Östermalms Saluhall, the city’s historic food hall, so you can taste the best the city has to offer by day and listen to its finest music by night.

Took them several hours to prepare the room. The rooms look like those of a nursing home. The food makes McDonald’s look like a mission star restaurant (Thank god they were across the road). The room was terribly cleaned and made me feel like I was in a homeless shelter. WARNING don’t stay in this hotel! You are better off staying at home

This hotel exceeded expectations in so many ways. After seeing the rooftop pool from the street below, I wanted to experience the pool myself. My wife and I spent a few hours enjoying the sun, drinks and snacks and the great atmosphere on the Avalon roof. We also enjoyed the atmosphere of the bar and the fantastic art found all over the hotel. We also loved the in-room bath and view over the square. The room was stylish and comfortable. All in all, a hotel that makes you feel like a rockstar!

Excellent hotel smack in the middle of Göteborg.

Cool, clean and friendly hotel at the perfect location for both business and pleasure. Staff is charming, hotel rooms are excellent, well equipped and nicely decorated. The restaurant is great, sitting on the terrace, enjoying a giant shrimp sandwich while looking at the crowd passing by on the street is a must.

We have stayed at the Avalon several times before and the hotel still lives up to our expectations. We stayed in Deluxe Panorama room which is large and spacious, has two separate toilets, bathroom with two sinks, comfortable beds with lovely linens, comfortable armchairs to sit in and just enjoy the panoramic view of Kungsportsplatsen.

The breakfast buffet has everything needed and the staff are pleasant and accommodating. The hotel is highly recommended
