It probably didn't help to be here on a particularly hot and humid day, but the aircon seemed to be ineffective, which was not a good start - and there was too much noise from the square outside to open the window at night - not that it would have cooled the room much, I think. Maybe the heat affected... More

If you are looking for a basic and nice hotel, then San Lorenzo is fine. You have what you need and the location is central with great restaurants just outside your door. There is some traffic outside, but with ear plugs this was not a problem. The breakfast was really nice and the staff are lovely. The only minus is... More

One of the the best locations in Alba. Simple interior but convenient. Parking available and good enough breakfast. One can walk to the cathedral, restaurants, enotecas, truffes fair and other local attractions. I recommend.

A most pleasant welcome by email before we arrived and in person when we arrived. Room was large and comfortable. Free parking in the courtyard. A nice breakfast, served with cheerfulness. A room overlooking the courtyard would have been preferable, but our booking was last minute and so no choice.

I will say that the hotel is conveniently located. It is an easy walk to the restaurants, bars, museum and shopping. That is worth something, The hotel has a lovely courtyard where you can enjoy your breakfast or a drink. Another plus. The staff is very nice and friendly. The breakfast bar is small with a selection of mostly pastries... More

We went there to see a concert and we fell in love with Alba and this sweet Albergo. We felt like we were staying with a family. That's the way we felt every day we get up in the morning and every time we came back to the "house". Rooms are small and the showers are very very smal but... More

My wife selected this small hotel with friendly, helpful service and great breakfasts (in the associated, street level pasticceria below). Francesca and Valentina were extremely helpful in suggesting local restaurants, sites to visit, arranging for a winery tour in the famous village of Barolo, and assisting with transportation for our several day trips to Torino, Asti and Barolo. They were... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Its right in the centre behind the main church and square. Walking distance to all the shops, restaurants and bars. Breakfast is simple but good, treats are produced in the cafe downstairs. Pastries are great. Room is simple but good. No english channels on tv. Bathroom really needs attention and thats why its not a... More

From the minute we checked into the Albergo San Lorenzo in Alba, we felt as welcome as if we were staying with family--but in a fascinating medieval town with incredible food, exciting festivals just outside our door, and stunningly beautiful landscapes of vineyards and hilltop castles 5 minutes away by car. The rooms are simple but very comfortable, perfectly situated... More

Great little hotel right in the historic centre of Alba. Friendly knowledgeable staff who give expert recommendations on food (Osteria del'Arco if you can get in is fabulous for truffle pasta and Barolo veal and a superb wine list - our 2004 Barolo was to die for!) Comfortable quiet rooms, a nice breakfast in a private area of the coffee... More
