“Great location, no soul and poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2012

Regarding the location, this is the best place to stay in Alba, its right in the center and 5 minutes walking distance from all the interesting points in this beautiful and quite city.
The hotel is brand new but is decorated in a classic way, and I like it. Internet and parking are free, which is a top point for people traveling with car. The big disappoint comes with the service, especially in the restaurant, the breakfast is poor comparing with other 4*, but the service is even worse, cold, distant and the young girls they only care about knowing if you want coffee or tea, not even a step further, just transporters with any sense of care! All in all, this is a great place when good location is what you are looking for; don’t look for service, hospitality, elegance or charm... a bit disappointing.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2011

I stayed here in November 2011 for 3 nights, the service at the hotel was good, free wifi, free underground parking, Sky tv and breakfast included as well. The rooms were clean and modern, though turning on the lights takes practice(there are many switches for all the different lights).... Great location to the city center within 10 min walk and close to all the good restaurants.

This is a modern hotel and provides all of the ameneties and comfort one expects from a good modern hotel. For us it had two major advantages. It was within a few minutes walk of the centre of Alba and it also had free underground parking. Perfect.

We didn't use the restaurant so can make no comment about that.
