The hotel is in a superb location looking out over the beach. The staff are positive and friendly. The continental breakfast is fresh and comprehensive. The steps to access the hotel, did not ask if there was lift.

This is a wonderful hotel in a beautiful location. It is complemented by a very service oriented staff and very nice breakfast. The staff has been very friendly and helpful with everything from helping with bags up the STAIRS, to accommodating storage for our bicycles. They cook fresh French pastries and breads for breakfast each morning and serve until 1030.... More

We stayed for one night at the family suite (2 separate rooms with common toilet and shower). I believe the price of 200 euros (not including breakfast) was too much for the facilities of the hotel. The room is below average, with old aluminum doors but electrical operating shades...The beds were very soft, making sleep almost impossible. On top of... More

Family of 4 we stayed for 3 nights in April 2014. Hospitality of service and location (in front of the sea) are outstanding. Beautiful living room with fantastic views over the bay. Excellent value for money and facilities according to a 3 star hotel. 15 minutes walk to Saint-Malo center is a pleasure. Nieves

We arrived at the hotel last week to be greeted by an overwhelming stench of damp and.....a little girl sitting behind the reception desk. Although very lovely, polite and speaking quite good English [although i speak enough French to get by] we were informed that the hotel is closed due to lack of water and we were re-booked to another...

My wife and stayed for 3 nights in October. We arrived on the ferry from Portsmouth at 8:15 am and drove to the hotel. We were told that the normal check in time was 2pm, but as they were not busy we were able to have our room. The room overlooked the car park. We were surprised as having booked... More

I have just returned from a glorious holiday exploring the Normandy & Brittany Coasts of France. The last 3 days of our trip were spent in Saint Malo, from which we traveled to le Mont St. Michele, Dinard and Dinan; always coming “home” at night to the Hotel Alba. We discovered this “gem” by accident as we drove into town... More

We enjoyed a 4 night stay at the Hotel Alba. Nice location on the ocean. Easy to find with some parking. We has a sea view room and absolutely loved it. What a view! Nice bar and lounge overlooking the boardwalk and sea. Room was somewhat small but comfortable and modern. Friendly staff. Ample breakfast at 12€. Be aware that... More

A small but very comfortable hotel. We had a room with a sea view which was worth paying a supplement for as the sunsets were superb. The rooms are a bit small but presume that's because they try to get as many with sea views. A good 10-15 brisk walk to the walled town. We stayed there for 2 nights... More

Spent a night here before getting a ferry. Lovely location right on the beach. Room was very small but functional for the night. Breakfast was good and the Bar has a great view. Try to ask for a sea view room get there early if you want to park.
