Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

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

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.

The best part of this hotel is the beautiful location by Jyväsjärvi lake. There is a nice 20-minute walk along the shore to Jyväskylä city center. It is advisable to book a room with lake views. The hotel building is very near the lake and it feels like staying onboard a ship. We booked the best room category that is Junior Suite. The hotel has 10 of them. Five on the 1st floor and five on the 2nd floor. We got the 2nd-floor corner suite at the end of the building. For a suite, the room was not so spacious but it was quite practical. The absolute highlight was an own sauna with lake views. The furniture was quite outdated with wear and tear to be seen. Especially the beds should be replaced. They were too soft. The suite television was small considering the nowadays

Hi Mikael F, thank you for the review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. JrSuites ( 1 room 28m2 including sauna ) have been the most inquired room type during this summer. The summer was very hot but the individual AC worked great . The furniture - good news. Last week, the desk, coffee table and the night stand has been replaced with new ones to all 10 rooms. They had wear and tear and for the reasons known, we were finally able to get new ones this summer. The televisions will be replaced too in the near future, but soon I hope. Thanks again for your views and we hope to see you again here at Alba

Every part of customer service was extremely friendly: booking, checking in and checking out. The hotel is located in an ideal place especially for those who enjoy jogging, walking, running... or have a dog with them. Clean and comfortable rooms and tasty breakfast. Only disappointment worth mentioning was a pretty loud noise from a/c that bothered before falling asleep. When booking, ask for a lakeside view: it is stunning.

Hi suomituristi2015, Thanks for your review on Alba. It's great to read that you enjoyed your stay. It seems that your visit was just like we would want it to be - comfortable and refreshing. You are quite right about the location - outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy easy strolls by the Jyväsjärvi lake and especially if travelling with pets. I'm sorry to hear about the noise from the restaurant. We are very popular company and private party venue because of the summer terrace location. Sometimes the music is too loud. My apologies for that. Thanks again for your views and hopefully we'll see you again someday here in Alba

it`s quite sad that management only tries to make more money + we were here again like so many years, but this time we were disappointed. Unfortunately, the overall state of the building and rooms is in need of update - and either management changed or price policy is no longer customer friendly: + generally free parking + clean room + excellent breakfast withhuge food selection + extreme friendly multilingual staff + very pet freindly - even the parking is free, but as there are limited spaces available we had to pay 10.- EURO additonal for parking lot reservation (we just wanted to be sure to have a free place for all our car staff) - cold room - low-quality toilet paper - this time no rooms with lake view as we got every visist the last years

I was here again after two years. Unfretunately, the overall state of the building and rooms is in need of update. Minuses: cold room (the heater did not help much) and the low-quality toilet paper. Pluses: Free parking, friendly service. I have to mention again that the breakfast was indeed very good. They have even improved the food selection since the last time I was here.

Hi Marja K, Thank you for your views on us. It's great to read that you visit was comfortable.Your visit sounds like we would want everyone to experience: clean room, good and restful night sleep and plentiful breakfast served with a big smile - That's our goal. You are correct - the rooms are compact and for those who wish to have little bit more space, we recommend booking the JrSuites wich are 28m2 and have their own sauna. I'm sorry to hear about the missing pillow - I have no idea what might have happened. But all who is reading this - our staff is happy to correct any mistakes or errors right away. Thanks again - and we certainly hope to see you again here at Alba

Hi ChristianS9055, Thank you for your views on Finlandia Hotelli Alba I think I remember you and your annual visits - you have a good perspective for our services. I really liked the way you calculated the sum - you are always welcome to Hotelli Alba. Good news - the room renovation is over for now and we have renovated some 70 rooms and bathrooms. They came out ok actually =) I'm afraid the room sizes did not increase but there is a selection from 11m2 to 28m2 to choose from - we hope there is something for everybody. Thanks again I certainly hope to see you again next year! With best regards,

It's convenient smaller hotel, relatively near the Matkakeskus. With heavy or big luggage it's not walkable distance. I loved the staff, they were super nice and helpful! Breakfast was AMAZING 🥞🍳, wish I could have eaten more! Room was practical, convenient and modern. Everything was modern and clean at the hotel. Bring your own pillow though, as they are really slim and only one piece. Women's sauna shift is too early for anyone, which was the inconvenience for me definitely.

Hi Susanna H Thank you for your review. We are so happy that you pointed out the things that we have wanted to upgrade; the breakfast, room cleaning and the customer service with a big smile. Great! But the pillow thing we need to pursuit next. We have various kinds of pillows and we are happy to change them to a suitable one. So advice for those who read this; you can request a puffy or slim pillow and we'll arrange it. Even after checkin in too. Sauna - yes I'm afraid we have only one sauna and ladies and gents need take turns - perhaps we can alter the hours... I would like to think so. Thank you again for your review and hopefully we'll meet again here at Hotelli Alba

A quick one-night stop w/ my wife. Not too far from the city centre. Hipposhalli sporting complex, which was our target, nearby. A plain, clean room, just some dust over bathroom lamps and pipes. Some renovation goin’ on at the time of our visit. Nice restaurant w/ mood lighting, lake/bridge view, good food and service. Outside enough free parking space, off-season at least.

Dear fitraveler74, Thanks for the review. We are happy your stay was comfortable and if you were competing in Hipposhalli - we hope there was success too. I'm glad you brought up couple of the key issues that I would like to open a little bit more. 1. the renovation. We have renovated over 70 rooms and bathrooms during last couple of years and I'm proud to say it's ready in next two weeks. I hope there was not too much inconvenience for you. We have put lot of effort that during the update everyone would feel as comfortable as possible. 2. Location. All the key sport venues are very close to us. The Hippos sports arena and the hockey center are about 10 min walking distance and also easy to reach by car too. I'll send some feedback for the cleaning - the ladies are doing a great job - but we can do better. Thanks again for the nice review - perhaps we'll meet again here at Alba

Dear Gabriela T, Thank you for the review. You stated all the qualities that we want be and try to show to our customer too.
