The Alba Hotel Jyväskylä is a friendly hotel, with rooms furnished in a plain style but providing most of the things you need. I was able to find a feather pillow (see my other reviews!) and with good lighting, a desk, reasonably comfortable bed the basics were there (but no tea/coffee making facilities). My room had a nice view over... More

The hotel actually gets 2 for the rooms but 5 for the excellent location/view. The rooms are small (actually tiny) however the lake facing rooms offer a breathtaking view of the lake and bridge. Simply a treat to the eye every time you look out the window. A little over 2KMs walk away from the train station this hotel is... More

Hi SankDaDevil, Thank you for your review. If the view will bring you back to us, we are happy as it is, but I have some good news too. We have renovated more rooms and they are now bit more welcoming than before. Hopefully we'll get a chance to accommodate you in one of those in the future. Of course,... More

This hotel is directly on the lake, with the restaurant and many rooms enjoying the lovely view, but still an easy walk to the center of town and a couple of blocks to the Aalto Museum, plus endless parking. Rooms are small but have everything you need. The staff is very helpful, even without asking. But, most surprising, the restaurant... More

I stayed at the hotel Alba on a recent visit to see friends. Located on a lake and next to the university it is easy to get to and the view is quiet pretty. There are park like green spaces around it with both cycling and walking tracks. The hotel rate includes breakfast which is served in the restaurant or... More

Hei, Kiitos arvostelustanne. Lukemani perusteella toivoisin kaikille vierailijoillemme yhtä mukavaa vierailua täällä meillä. Ehkä lisämaustetta myös teille toisi yöpyminen Jrsviitti huoneessamme jossa järvinäköalan lisäksi, oma sauna ja itsesäädeltävä ilmastointi. Näitä huoneita meillä on 10 kappaletta ja ne ovat kovin suosittuja myös. Toivottavasti tapaamme taas täällä meillä! Ystävällisin terveisin, Tommi Sievinen HOTELLI ALBA Hi, Thank you for your review.

I chose the Alban for the location on the lake. This really is a plus and if you want you can be in the centre of town within 10 minutes. I knew the rooms would be simple and it was, but as I said, OK. But if only they would give their visitors new towels, that would be an improvement... More

Thank you very much from Japan. I went to Jyvaskyla for a conference. This hotel is located just along a lake and close to the convention centre as well. One more thing, you can taste house seasoned herring at breakfast. Strongly recommended.

Hello Kokuriko, Thank you for your review - we are happy to hear that your time at Hotel Alba during conference went well. Jyväskylä University has great meeting facilities at Mattilanniemi and lucky for us we are right next to the Agora building and quite close to Jyväskylä Paviljonki too.

I stayed in this hotel while attending a conference. The room was a 'business' one, and was a decent size, clean and functional. The room overlooked the lake and the view from the window was absolutely stunning. The breakfasts were excellent, and the staff at reception were very helpful indeed.
