Great hotel. Super clean room. Walk in shower with seat was greatly appreciated, as well as the handicapped parking in front of the hotel. The location was perfect. A lovely venue for a wedding. Will definitely stay here again.

Overall the experience was really pleasant. Staff was nice. They are very accommodating if you have a family or even a baby. I booked the room and requested to have a crib and it showed up without asking for it again. I had the one bedroom and den. It was still a little small, but overall it was fine. They... More

I didn't actually stay in the Alma itself but was in the Yamnuska Hall summer residence, which is managed by the Hotel Alma, and is less than 5 minutes walk from there. My room was spotless. Check In/Out was at the Hotel Alma. Yamnuska has all the benefits of the Alma including access to the cafe/restaurant which was great. It... More

We had a 1 br suite. Fridge, microwave, 2 TVs; Fairly Euro styling. Room has air-conditioning and blinds. Washroom is okay - not too small. Things were clean and housekeeping can be arranged. Bistro Alma downstairs is a functional and somewhat pleasant diner. The bed is a double and not a queen. It has a mattress that has a waterproof... More

I found Hotel Alma on Trivago, as one of the cheaper options for a night's stay in Calgary, close to the airport. I was completely impressed by the helpful and friendly staff and the appearance of the space. My room was great - and more affordable than a regular hotel - though it looked and felt like a hotel!! I... More

When front desk was informed about what i had booked I was told to pay an extra 30$ per room to be put into the hotel section. The dorm room beds... More

Pleasantly surprised with our stay at the Hotel Alma. Were not sure what to expect, with it being on a university campus. The hotel and room appeared to be renovated and were clean. Breakfast was included each morning, and access granted to the University of Calgary gym/pool across the street. Within walking distance on the grounds we found Starbucks, various... More

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.
