One night stay with dog and we were happy. Good value for money and great breakfast with nice lake view :) There was small "working desk" for remote worker and served well. Clean room and enough parking space. Really good location close city centrum

The hotel is located on the shore of beautiful Lake Jyväsjärvi, in line of sight of one of University of Jyväskylä's campuses. The city center is a 20-minute walk away. If you plan to spend a lot of time in the room, this may not be a great choice for you as the rooms are small and fairly modestly outfitted. If, however, you plan to sleep there, have breakfast and be away for the day, this is an excellent choice at a reasonable price. The rooms are clean and pleasant, with well outfitted bathrooms and good hot water pressure. Access to high speed internet is unproblematic. Breakfast is included and provides an excellent selection; if you want to fully enjoy it I'd suggest planning to skip lunch. You'll get excellent service at the restaurant, bar and reception. There are two or three beers on tap but you're better off with bottles - this sees to be a more general recommendation in Finland, even in there are many good Finnish beers. The path around the lake is perfectly suited for a jog or a bike ride and the hotel provides bikes at no extra charge. Unfortunately, there is no gym. My only complaint is that smoking is allowed on the beautiful patio and one may get the occasional whiff of cigarette smoke in the rooms situated immediately above. I may be biased because I was there on university business (see campus across the lake in the attached picture) but am definitely looking forward to my next visit.

Hi, Thank you for your views and sharing them. I think you listed everything we wish to be remembered for. Thank you for that. And a great choice to book JrSuite room, we have just renewed the desk, nightstands and the coffee table in all of the JrSuites so we think they look nice. We try to maintain the breakfast and limit the ingredients to what we always have available, that limits the variety a little - Oh. I hope you got the chance to enjoy the breakfast at our summer terrace - the view is quite nice don't you think. Thanks again for your review, we hope to see you soon again at Alba

Very pleased with this hotel. Room clean with comfortable beds, excellent breakfast served until 11/noon, friendly staff, free parking. Because of the warm weather we took a dip in the lake as well. Only negative was maybe that there was no phone in the room.

Greetings R_G_Mueller, Thank you for your views and sharing them. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Yes - for this summer we have extended the breakfast hours mon-fri until 11.00 and sat-sun until 12:00. Summer has been super busy and extended hours helps during the epidemic our customers to fit in during breakfast more safely and comfortable too. Free parking is not often found in Jyväskylä so it's well greeted by our customers. . Oh and new feature : for electric/hybrid cars we have two charging spots too. You can book the spot and charging is payable at the reception when checking in to hotel. During the room renovation, we gave land line phones in the room some years ago, there were multiple service numbers so to make it easy - all inquiries and requests can be done by cell phone to our one number +35814636311 Thank you again for your views - we hope to see you again soon here at Alba

Wonderful view of Jyväskylä University and lake from the room thats all got those 2 points. Room was clean and had sauna in the room bathroom. No complaints about room. Things started to go downwards when went to restaurant for dinner. Either the waitress had a bad day or dont know her work. Took the food order in a rush but didn't even ask for drinks. Had to ask for a wine / drinks list then waited around 20 min if someone come to ask about my drinks. At the end had to call to ask for water and drinks. Wine list was just basic. Food didn't look like a food from 3 star hotel restaurant. I had a burger and goat cheese salad. It was a dry burger and fortunately Salad didn't need cooking. Breakfast was another let down. Again dry bread and not enough items. Orange juice was water with orange color. Overall splendid room but food and service let it down, hence 2 stars.

Hi 94tanvirt, Thank you for your views during your stay. We are so sorry for your bad experience at the restaurant. What you described should never happen but obviously it did. During this very busy summer all kinds of mistakes can happen but there's no excuse. We hope some day you'll visit us again and find out that we want and can improve our services and keep it as it's usual professional and friendly level in every situation. Thanks again for sharing your experience.
