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

In English: Our standard room was really basic. It had nothing surprising. The breakfast was really good and plenty. I like that there is also fresh fruits offered. Hotel Alba is comfort little hotel near the centre of Jyväskylä next to beautiful lake. Suomeksi: Yövyimme kesällä yhden yön hotelli Albassa. Standard huone oli todella tavallinen, mutta siisti ja sopivankokoinen. Aamiainen... 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

Hi Eef W, Thank you for your review, We very happy that you liked your visit here, the area is most beautiful, especially during summer and now in autumn when leaves are changing color to yellow and red. Too bad that in Jyväskylä area the colourful scene ( we call it "ruska" ) only lasts couple of weeks. Thank you... 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. But the area is great isn't it! The lake and... More

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. My only reason for not awarding five stars was the... More

Hi Marmitefi.., Thank you for your review - it makes us all so happy that your visit went well. Sorry for the cold weather, it took us Finns as a surprise too, usually the weather is quite warm and sunny with occasional showers.

I have visited in this hotel several times. The rooms are a bit small, furniture is old and quite basic. One time the leg of the bed went broken without any reason when I was sleeping. I have eaten the lunch of the hotel several times due to meetings held in the hotel, and only starters and desserts are eatable.... More

Hi Riku V, Thank you for review again, it's helpful to have not one but two reviews from same person. I notice the difference from your last review, you have not enjoyed the main courses. We are sorry to hear that. Since we take our lunch services very seriously, we urge you give it another change. You recommend us for... More

This is a great hotel if you are visiting the university of Jyvaskyla or even the town itself - it is in the most pleasant part of the town with a stunning view of the lake. My room was simple, small but very comfortable and clean. It was good for working and walking - which is conducive to thinking! Breakfast... More

Hi zagez, and thank you too for the review. I assume that even if your visit was not for leisure, you enjoyed your stay and got some work done too. And as so many before you, you checked in on Sunday and the kitchen was closed. We try to inform our customer and assosiates, the Jyväskylä Uni and others that... More

I have stayed here twice while on business with Jyvaskyla university. Both times I stayed in the deluxe rooms with sauna, whichj is a super nice luxury, especially on a chilly November evening!

Nice hotel, very basic rooms but also very clean. One exception. The windows in the rooms could be clean and the curtains off - why not let the customers enjoy the beautiful view to the lake. All the meals pretty okay including also some specialities, wine selection basic.

Whatever you do, ask for a room overlooking the water. It's a basic but perfectly acceptable hotel, perfect location for work or meetings at the University. Clean but small rooms and the single beds are very narrow! Good buffet breakfast.
