I stayed here for a conference and was quite pleased. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and in good shape. I stayed in a single economy room, so I knew that it would be small, and it was, but this wasn't a problem; I still had plenty of space for my luggage and other things. The hotel location is...

The location of Hotel Alba is magnificent especially in the summer and if your room is on the lake side. The reception staff is very nice, the over all premises are clean as well as the tiny little double room. The view to the lake and the university buildings on the other side of the lake can be fascinating year... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights here while in Jyvaskyla for research. The hotel's location is outstanding, directly on the lake. We asked for and got one of the rooms with a lake view which was stunning. The rooms are pretty Spartan (think clean, tidy, student residence) but quite adequate. The restaurant, which projects out over the lake, is... More

Cosy hotel near the Jyväskylä city centre. Rooms are little bit small but in good condition. Reseption and restaurant staff was very friendly. Food on the restaurant was a big suprise. Very good and we notice the chaine des rotisseurs sings in the wall. Situation on the hotel is marvellous above the lake. If you come Jyväskylä you should stay... More

Hotel is outside city center but the view makes the hotel worth staying at. I stayed at the economy room, it was really small but had enough room for one night stay. I noticed that the sound insulation was quite poor - I was able to hear the other guests closing doors, etc.

Hotel Alba is situated near university buildings in Mattilanniemi. This was my first visit to the hotel and I have to I was dissapointed. The hotel is not old but already worned out. Small rooms. At night there was noise in the corridoor. Perhaps it is natural because of student visitors. Breakfast was simple and because of small breakfast space... More

We were here last weekend, when the output mode was less than -25 degrees Celsius. The hotel room was warm and therefore comfortable.The breakfast was good and varied enough. The coffee was especially good.

Hi PasiKovalainen, Thank you for your prompt review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. The extra long cold period in January went well, even though the coldest day was -28, we managed to keep the cold outside. It's great that our breakfast came up to expectations.

Stayed here for 3 weeks while attending a course next door at the University. This is a fairly basic hotel, but good enough for my stay. There were no tea or coffee making facilities in my standard room, and no fridge. The hotel is probably a 2km walk to the nearest supermarket if you want to get some snacks, but... More

Alba is fairly modern, standard business hotel outside the Jyväskylä city centre, located in the University campus on the southern edge of the city. The view from lakeside rooms and the restaurant is wonderful. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Rooms are small, but alright for an overnight stay.
