The hotel itself was very good and centrally located. But all the hardware in the hotel really needed an upgrade. Our room was a strange mix of dark furnitures from the fifties or sixties and a bathroom from the eighties which really needed a renewal. The morning buffet was ok and the staff seemed friendly and helpfull.

Pros: Location (but this is it) Cons: Poor room, uncomfortable bed, felt a bit dirty Breakfast: Better eat it elsewhere. Atmosphere: Felt like a 2 star cheap hotel. I would not revisit unless they upgrade everything.

We had not expected to be staying in Alba and so had not researched hotels but as we understand old fashioned Italian hotels we guessed Hotel Savona would be a case of dreadful room decor (actually tomb like) and clean. In July there was Jazz music in the street until midnight so noisy if you don't like Jazz! Later we... More

Room across from elevator. Air conditioning available only after 8PM on first night. Tiny elevators (2) were slow and frequently unresponsive. Clean. Great breakfast buffet. Front desk attempted to be accommodating but seemed to need lessons in customer relations and communications. Maybe I need to work on my Italian. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and the beds were comfortable... More

This is a hotel that will not be appreciated by everybody, so it's important to know what to expect. First of all it is very classical, with old-fashioned furniture, wall-to-wall carpets and bathrooms that must have been fitted in the 1980s. So if you want sleek and modern surroundings then this is a no-go. Personally, the fact that the bathroom... More

Perfect location for crashing after a night out. Close to Plaza di Savona were a seemingly simple restaurant surprised us with a brilliant Barolo 1997. Several restaurants with acceptable food in the proximity. Supermarked across the street is also a plus. Room with wall to wall carpet and paper-thin walls weren't that good. Breakfast a big dissapointment. Little to choos... More

This hotel is rated as a 4-Star hotel yet, upon arrival, I wondered why. Three stars (-) maybe, but four, never. First of all, there was a less than hospitable receptionist who said there was no parking, even though the site I visited said there was. One would think that in such cases there would be at least one space... More

Hotel is in very good location especially if you are visiting for truffle festival as you are just minutes from centre of celebrations. Rooms are pretty small, old style, have strong smell. Hotel itself needs some renovations. It's difficult to find parking exactly near hotel. There is parking area may be 500 meters from hotel. There are a lot of... More

The hotel is in a fantastic location close to the centre of Alba. It is more a 2 or 3 star than a 4 star hotel. It needs to be upgraded and if it was would be a real gem. I would recommend for the location.
