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

This modest Albergo is a block away from the Duomo and within walking distance of all the major shopping, sights and restaurants in Alba. They have on site parking which is a major plus. The young ladies who work the reception desk are lovely and extremely helpful in offering advice and suggestions for local restaurants. It is a small B&B... More

The hotel is simple but nice. Advantage: it is right in the old town and it is connected to a cafeteria and pastry shop where breakfast is served, which is therefore really nice (Italian style - cappuccino and some pastry). Disadvantage: the central room of the first hotel floor is also used as "baby parking" and therefore on weekdays it... More

Stayed just one night. Small, comfortable rooms, updated amenities. Walking distance to all of the city of Alba, from the famous Pio Cesare winery to restaurants to the entire beautiful city's church and architecture

The hotel does not have and extravagances and has to be described as fairly basic, but they do not have pretences of grandeur. The reason to stay here is that you could not be better placed to enjoy the old town centre. There is an extensive market in the town on Saturdays. Good for food and other general needs. There...
