Stayed in Yamnuska Hall where Hotel Alma apartments are located. On the plus side - inexpensive, relatively close to downtown, clean, large fridge and microwave, Starbucks and Domino's on site, free wifi with strong signal. On the downside - bed was really uncomfortable and too high off the ground for small kids, no hair dryers, only 1 towel per person... More

The facilities were ok, but much understaffed. Service was less than mediocre. I was given the wrong key to my room. I was staying in Yamnuska Hall (decent accomodations) and was given a key to a room in a completely different building (it was not good). This mistake cost me about 1.5 hours of my time and caused me to... More

Clean rooms but small. Beds could be more comfortable. Checked out a day early after being there 6 nights and they still charge me for the 7th night even though I checked out that morning. Breakfast had very limited items.

Hotel Alma was a nice surprise! Although the room was small, it was very clean and well thought out use of the space. Breakfast was included and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Gym access was through the university. Really enjoyed walking around the campus. Restaurants were within walking distance if you did not want to eat at the... More

The hotel is fresh and appointed nicely with a modern décor. Rooms are small - small bathroom, armoire that can't take a full length coat, ironing board that isn't free-standing and a small TV fixed to the wall. An average sized arm chair beside the bed didn't leave room to pass. Despite answering the question from the staff at check-in... More

I travel lots for work, during Stampede all the hotels that I usually stay at were booked, Decided to book at the Hotel Alma, since the pictures looked amazing. The hotel is very modern, for the rate that I payed it was amazing. The service though was terrible. I'm not huge on breakfast, but this was literally a joke. I'm... More

Quiet rooms which are clean and comfortable. Room is a little small but well equipped. Breakfast was okay, a continental that had cereal, yoghurt, some fruit, bread and pastries and boiled eggs. Have to park in multi-story about 400 yards from hotel. For the price this is excellent value. Also fairly nice area to walk around with not too much... More

Negative points: Wifi internet is only provided up to the afternoon of your last night. Why? I stayed for four night and I was cut off in the afternoon of the last day!! Over priced parking. There are cheaper parkings around. Friendly staff, clean rooms.

Picked based on location and price but wasn't disappointed. Very clean. Simple buffet breakfast. Good value. Very pleasant helpful staff throughout. Would definitely stay again. Used the university pool and gym included in the price and right next door. Very close to hospitals, malls, bike routes etc.

I had a very enjoyable stay here. A small problem with the heat in my room the first night was rectified to my satisfaction. The breakfast is plentiful and healthy and the staff are very pleasant and go out of their way to help. Well done Alma!
