Very nice and simple accommodations. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great and had a nice variety. Our conference hung out in the bar at night and played folk music. The staff was really kind and kept it open a bit longer just for us. The room was comfortable and had an incredible view of the lake and... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Alba hotel during a conference at the adjacent university. The rooms are small and simple but clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. There is a wardrobe for your clothes, a desk, tv, even a heated towel rack in the bathroom. The views of the lake from our room and the dinning... More

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
