The hotel is on the edge of the old town. It has easy car access and there is secure parking available adjacent to the hotel building. The room cost is reasonable and an OK breakfast is included. The room was comfortable and clean but was somewhat old and worn. The old town has a number of excellent restaurants and the... More

This is a nice but tired old hotel in a perfect spot for exploring Alba. We asked for a room facing inside and it was quiet. Our room and the rest of the hotel was worn looking. Our toilet had a broken seat that required fixing. The bed was quite hard. We did have a rather large bathroom with shower... More

In August 2013 we stopped in the little town of Alba to visit some of the world's finest wineries - many small and not well known but producing amazing wines. It was my first trip to Italy but my boyfriend had been there many years before. He had told me about the Hotel Savona, having stayed there years ago -... More

We were lucky enough to stay here whilst playing in the World Masters Games. The town is a lovely old town with many great eating locations. The Hotel staff was so friendly and could not do enough to help us, from the staff behind the counter to a lovely lady behind the bar, we could not have enjoyed a better... More

Situated in the city center, a very short walk from the shopping streets. Room was nice but a bit worn. Breakfast ok. Staff friendly and helpful. Private locked parking in the back, great for us traveling by car.

The breakfast at this hotel was really lovely. The espresso was perfect and the pastries worth the calories. The staff is friendly and welcoming. My only comments are that the hotel is a little old and feels its age. Our room was comfortable enough but there were many flies in the room (we were able to open the window and... More

We liked this hotel. The rooms are worn, but roomy with lots of character. We had a balcony looking onto an interesting street. The desk staff were helpful - didn't notice any eye rolling while we were facing them- and the breakfast is very good. The restaurant is in a separate area, it looks like a banquet room and is...

As many others have mentioned, the location of this hotel can't be beat. If you're driving into Alba, make sure to RESERVE a parking spot with the hotel. The lot is tiny. While it bills itself as a 4*, it really should be billed as a 2.5* Service: A previous poster mentioned eye rolling concierge. We had the same fellow.... More
