My wife and I had returned to Italy from southern Spain when we discovered this hotel. The summer in this part of Europe was unusually hot, and air conditioning in many hotels was insufficient -- this hotel sets a new standard. The beds are comfortable, the showers have good water pressure,the air conditioning works very well, the garage is accessible... More

We loved this hotel. It's easy walking distance (10 mins) to both the train station and the town. Very clean and rooms are well looked after and maintained. I particularly appreciated the gluten free bread that was cooked for me each morning after I informed staff that I was coeliac. We asked where a post office was to buy stamps... More

Dear Guest, thank you for this kind review. We do our best to let every person have a perfect stay here, and we feel perfection is in the details. Taking care of food intolerances, having stamps, matches, etc... it's not "much", but we think it can really improve people's experience. We are happy you liked this. We hope to see... More

Stayed 5 nights at the hotel while on a tour to Piedemont region. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom was spotlessly cleaned each day. The breakfast buffet was very good as was the served fresh capuccino. The management was very prompt and helpful when needed. Would definitely stay here again if I come back to Alba.

We are glad you appreciated the breakfast, which we think is one of our points of strength: everything is fresh every day, and our colleagues do any effort to let people start well their days! We hope you will be our Guest again one day in Alba. Kind regards, Santino Gerlotto More

The hotel is a short and easy walk to the centre of town. We stayed for one night in April and were very pleased with the comfort of the room and facilities and with the very helpful front desk staff.

This is a beautiful hotel that is very centrally located in Alba. The breakfast buffet included in the rate was great. I have to say the highlight was the man at the front desk. We had left a pair of shoes at a previous hotel that was about 30 minutes away. That hotel owner had offered to have the shoes... More

Lovely hotel in Alba, breakfast is ok, coffee cold 😔.. Gym is very small though. Room is comfy and shower good. Friendly staff. Good area for nice restaurants. Internet slow though. Enjoyed the time there. Stayed a few nights for business.

Dear Guest, we are glad you had a nice stay here. We are sorry for the cold coffee: please, if you come back again, never mind asking our waiters to bring you a new one in case yours is not fine!

We were in Alba for winery visit and also culinary tour. We had a few choices to stay outside of the city but we then decided to take a convenience by choosing this hotel. Whilst we were not impressed with the building itself (including the color), the service and the room were very satisfactory. The hotel staffs were very helpful... More

The hotel is one most newest in the town and also has residence apartments.. compared to most others it has the best rooms and in particular the residence apartments are even better. & all for a decent price. For the food however, I would recomment to go out to the city centre to explore many more good restaurants..

Stayed during the festival! It's a super location (once you find it on a side street) from which to enjoy the festivities in Alba with it's own underground garage. You can walk to everything in town and have an excellent base to use to motor to the many famous northern Italian wine villages and picturesque country side. Rooms are great,... More

Good, functional hotel, very convenient location adjacent "old town" Alba and a good base to explore the Langhe and adjacent regions in Piemonte. Very happy I was there, and will probably return.
