              The bar in Restaurant sells expensive drinks "only" made ​​of ice cube's, and with only a few drops of vodka and tonic....:-(

            • Couple
              8.2

              The design and comfort of the room. Outstanding bed and linens!

              The patio of the hotel bar. It was pretty crowded, but we expected to be able to get a drink within 30 minutes. We couldn't get the waiter to notice us for the first 15 minutes we were there. Then we said we needed a menu. It took another 5 minutes for him to bring the menu. Then there were no drinks on the menu, so we asked for a drink menu (by flagging him down.) He came back 5 minutes later with a wine menu. (I really just wanted to see what beers they had, but it wasn't listed on either menu, and waiter was in too much of a hurry for us to ask a question.) So after waiting another 5 minutes for him to come back, we finally just left. I don't know how long we'd have sat there waiting for him.

              Very central location. Very clean and excellent bar .

              Dark corridors and dubious artwork . Noise from bars outside at night

            • Couple
              8.2

              Very comfortable beds, great breakfast and friendly staff. Nice extra touch with ability to plug in laptop to tv and dvd-player in room.

              Offering a room with larger bathtub in open-plan bathroom as a nice feature and then not having bath foam in the hotel is a bit daft.

              It is very centrally located with easy access to public transport. It was an excellent choice for a short shopping trip too with all our favourite shops just in the neighbourhood. The beds were fantastic but then Swedes do make good beds... We'll definitely be back but probably not until summer 2012 but if our plans change then we would not hesitate to book the hotel again.

              I was genuinely looking forward to swimming in the roof top pool which I have admired from the the ground floor for many years. However, in reality you can't really swim in it - two strokes and you are at the other side! Disappointing.

            • Older travelers

              Design of the hotel, the room was lovely, very well thought out, comfortable bed and good quality bedlinen. Loved the glass plunge pool on the roof! However, you couldn't call it a swimming pool. Public areas were great for sitting in and watching the world go by. Staff were very friendly.

              Peuple at the desk réception young kind efficient highly professionnel, room 69 is enchanting . top floor pool is a real surprise. Feng shui approach and design and art inspiration a deep source of relaxing and change of mind . We live in france in the city of lyon with my companion the French stylist nicolas fafiotte we are in the habit of five stars resort and hotel and top stars restaurants.

              I would just regret the barman who had been a little bit impolite and rough with us the night we arrived : because we asked a herbal tea I was answered there was no herbal tea "because it a bar where they only serve drinks !!! : a bit upseting before going to sleep my first night in the avalon : I guess it was late and the bar was about to close but the barman bald and wearing black glasses should learn to be open minded and welcoming with people who like herbal teas .. telling us th bar was closing would have been the great sesam for a perfect time in avalon and we would have taken it in our room . the breakfast is well provided but the ambiance is not really zen because of a few young members of the restaurant staff : lack of cohesion and formation : maybe the barman is the recruiter ???? thanks you for asking

              Good location Nice service Restaurant is excellent

              Too expensive , almost 3000 kr~ room is kind of tight ~ Our balcony was dirty, been left over many cigerate for two three days. Haven't refile toalite paper and tissues until we asked.

              8.8

              Hotel bar is under-staffed. Waited 20 min to get served. 3 bartenders on a saturday night with a full crowd does not seem properly dimensioned.

              The reception staff was very helpful and friendly. We have been upgraded to a superior room and allowed to check out earlier which was perfect. The room is nicely decorated with a modern and comertable design. Breakfast - very good as well. The location is in central - in the heart of the ciry - close to the shopping area.Highly recommended,

              For a hotel that is specialized in design it was very odd that the shower flooded from the bathroom into the bedroom after two showers. The floor was soaked. Also for a top end hotel there was only shampoo in the room and no conditioner. There were CDs which were a nice touch, but there wasn't a CD player.

              Poor lighting in the rooms. There were two tiny spotlights over the bed area.no purposeful desk area to work, Bathroom shower door didnt fit properly so water leaked out. The hallways were very poorly lit with grotesque 'art' predominantly of naked women... The entire interior was very very dull. Restaurant was good though there was a very poor choice of vegetarian food.

              Great location. Nice room design.

              Small lobby, not so wide variety for breakfast. No fitness. Glassdoor WC. Expected more for the price.
