We were here last weekend, when the output mode was less than -25 degrees Celsius. The hotel room was warm and therefore comfortable.The breakfast was good and varied enough. The coffee was especially good.

Hi PasiKovalainen, Thank you for your prompt review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. The extra long cold period in January went well, even though the coldest day was -28, we managed to keep the cold outside. It's great that our breakfast came up to expectations. We hope to see you again soon, With best regards, Tommi Sievinen... More

Stayed here for 3 weeks while attending a course next door at the University. This is a fairly basic hotel, but good enough for my stay. There were no tea or coffee making facilities in my standard room, and no fridge. The hotel is probably a 2km walk to the nearest supermarket if you want to get some snacks, but... More

Alba is fairly modern, standard business hotel outside the Jyväskylä city centre, located in the University campus on the southern edge of the city. The view from lakeside rooms and the restaurant is wonderful. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Rooms are small, but alright for an overnight stay.

I have stayed in the Alba a few times now as I frequently visit the University of Jyvaskyla with work, and I have never had a bad stay there. The hotel is clean, and the staff are friendly. There is free wifi and a television in each room and a communal sauna should you so desire. There are lots of... More

The staff at Alba hotel are excellent. Their friendliness and will to help are one of the best I have seen in any hotel. Located by the lakeside and not too far away from the city (and next to the university) make it a good location.

I stayed 3 weeks at this hotel in the summer. The hotel is situated on the lake shore and the lake site rooms have a very beautiful view, so make sure you ask for a lake site room. The hotel is not in the city center, but close to it, probably about 15 minutes walk. The one person rooms are... More

We had a suite with a sauna and view of the lake. Can recommend it as modern comforts and friendly place. Not too far to walk to town but far enough to be quiet, so nice position. They don't have a pool or spa and pillows are far too small to be comfortable so the hotel is not so good... More

I was here for 3 nights while attending an event at Jyvaskyla University. The room is small but perfectly adequate. The first night I found out that there were no towels in the room, asked for them and had to eventually go downstairs to pick them up myself--the main problem of this hotel, I suspect, is that it understaffed. However,... More

I stayed two nights at Alba. First of all, the location is very good. It takes only about 8 minutes to climb uphill to the university and the route is relaxing and safe. The city center is not far and there is an ABC gas station around a kilometer from the hotel parking lot (parking is free, btw). The service... More

I stayed here for overnight during a business trip. The room is quite old but I was given a fantastic view of Lake Jyväsjärvi. If you happen to have events in the Agora Building of the University of Jyväskylä, then this hotel is more suitable for your stay. It's good to hangout at their bar during the night. I've enjoyed...
