A beautiful old-style but modernised hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable but lacked some essentials like a box of tissues and a bar of soap (liquid soap for the shower and the hand basin - doesn't work for me). The hotel is situated centrally for the Piemonte area and all those lovely hill-top ancient villages. Not much to do... More

The hotel buildings are really quite something - beautiful, however not lavish. Our room was small but enough for a short stay. A few small additions would be great. A box of tissues and a cake of soap and also an iron and board. When you arrive from Australia your clothes need ironing but I want to do that as... More

This was our second visit to Albergo dell'Agenzia. Great location and setting with Banca Del Vino and Slow Food connected to the hotel. We go back to the property because everyone their works so hard to make sure you have a great time. I don't think no is in their vocabulary. Our room was large with a comfortable bed and... More

Top class hotel. Lots of very friendly and helpful staff. Large rooms. Everything in working order. Great pool area, spa, wellness and fitness rooms. Underground parking which is great in summer heat. Also an excellent slow food restaurant. Proximity to the famous wine bank is a plus. Easy to reach numerous castles, wine museums, vineyards etc. in Barolo area.

We had expected this hotel to offer something special due to its proximity to the Slow Food University, but we were very disappointed. The rooms are pleasant and the grounds are nice. The restaurant, however, is a real let-down. We were served a tasting menu of several courses that reminded us of food you might be served on an airplane.... More

Lovely old royal summer residence converted into comfortable and tasteful hotel. there is also a slow food oriented gastronomic university and a wine museum on site. The restaurant is well above average for hotel restaurants; we ate there two nights in a row, but there are other restaurants in the old historic village nearby. The rooms are spacious and nicely...

We stayed in a beautiful room, felt like we were in a loft. Beautiful view, comfortable bed and the restaurant was to die for! The Slow Food concept was great, it felt like a nice way to eat and to live actually. I will definitely be looking into it more. I wish we had more time to spend there, and... More

I recently attended a conference at this site, and thought it was a wonderful, relaxing, beautiful venue. The Slow Food restaurant was great, and featured a spectacular panna cotta. Overall, a relaxing place in the countryside that helps you focus, whether on personal or business activities. Great place!!

We decided to go the truffle fair in Alba few weeks before it, so most hotels there were sold-out. Luckily we googled and found the Albergo dell'Agenzia Lodging - great option, about 20 minutes far from Alba, and away from the confusion there. Albergo was built in an old monastery and is also part of a gastronomic university. The rooms... More

Our travel coordinator stumbled across this unique hotel and we fully enjoyed our two nights with them. The 'campus' houses a school of gastronomy and the Banca del Vino, bank of wine, for the entire country. We were able to tour the wine bank, with a student guide, and enjoy a wine tasting of the local production. The staff is... More
