The building itself is not particularly impressive, neither on the outside nor the inside. It feels a little dated, a little used.
Läge och transport
Situated on the southern part of the most famous street in Gothenburg, Avenyn. Walking distance to bars, restaurants, cinema, communications.
Incheckning/Utcheckning, service och statusförmåner
As a loyalty card holder on Black level, the second highest, I was treated to some much appreciated extras: Room upgrade, water bottles and candy, as well as check-in upon arrival at 11 AM and check-out as late as 6 PM. When I got back home, I saw that they had charged me for a water bottle. I may have had an extra one from the mini bar. I called them and they immediately refunded me.
The room was next to the elevator which affected the wi-fi. On the first floor with a window to a small park and a little balcony it felt homey. The room has a sitting area with a smart TV, and there is another smart TV by the bed. Slippers and robes were in the wardrobe.
The bathroom was a bit small and, like the rest of the hotel, could have benefited from a touch-up. Shaving, sewing and toothbrush kits were by the sink. I liked the room. The layout was airy with lots of light coming in through the windows.

GYM AND RELAX
On the ground floor there is a gym which is not very big but with OK space. It feels fresh and clean although not as fancy as the one at Clarion Post. It has no power rack and not enough weights for heavy lifting. The changing rooms are OK. The relax area with pool, steam room and sauna has a big window but no view and could do with a retiling. One of the showers had been fitted recently and felt modern.
I think that Elite Park Avenue has quite good dining options, with an Italian restaurant, a pub and a contemporary slightly more formal restaurant. I spent my 100 SEK voucher at the pub on a disappointing Caesar salad.
The breakfast was actually quite disappointing. It ticked several of the usual boxes, but there was no love behind the execution. Breakfast was served in hallways on the first floor with seating at huge tables in two big dining rooms.
The internet connection worked well in most areas, except the bed. Streaming from the internet browser in the smart TV worked so-so. The apps, like Netflix, probably work better.
I would not go back to Elite Park Avenue, and that is all because of the breakfast. It just showed such a lack of heart and interest. Other than that, my stay was great.
