The hotel is located within the main university campus suitable for those on some sort of short business with the university. The building and facilities are relatively old, but they serve quite well. The staff is quite helpful and friendly. The hotel also offers free car park to the guests. You can have your car parked there eveb for some extra hours after the check out at 12:00. It takes 12-15 minutes to walk from the hotel to the centre of Jyvaskyla.

Dear momeeted, Thank you for your review. You got it right. We are located right next to the Agora building and 5 min walk from Ruusupuisto. To the actual main campus it takes about 10 minutes to walk. Our biggest customer is Jyväskyä University and it's visiting guests during conferences, workshops and lectures. Because of the close relationship with Jyväskylä Uni we have a very international and interesting atmosphere here at Alba. We have renovated almost all of our standard rooms during 2017-2018 and more is to come. After the standard rooms are ready - we'll move on to our best rooms - the JrSuites. Thanks again your informative review, We hope to see you again here at Hotelli Alba

Stayed at the hotel in November 2018. It is fairly basic but not! It is not much to look at but inside it is beautifully decorated. Rooms are spacious even for the singles. The views onto the lake (behind the hotel) are amazing They have a very nice sauna and the breakfast was excellent. The best thing about the hotel are the staff. They are so helpful and assisted me a lot with IT issues. .

Hi ketan p, Thank you for your review. We are lost for words here. I'm going to print this out and put it on frames or do something that everyone can enjoy your nice words. The lake view is great, even during the darkest time of the year which is November and December. The Ylistö bridge and it's lights are very beautiful - the City of Jyväskylä has really made it look great. Extra thanks for mentioning our greatest asset - the staff. We do our best serve and help our customers and it's wonderful to get such a great feedback. Thanks again and hopefully we'll see you again at Hotelli Alba, Happy Holidays!

Stayed here for a conference next door. The room was tiny and very basic, no tea/coffee available. I did have a lake view which was lovely to wake up to. The food is fantastic, breakfast buffet had everything you could want. All in all, convenient for a short stay.

Hi Natalie J, Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. You must have stayed in a single economy room; they are very tiny and . But also they are very requested too for the lower rate. I'm glad that you were happy about the food and breakfast. We have invested more to our restaurant services and it's great to hear that our efforts are noted. Great. We hope to see you again at Hotelli Alba again, With best regards, Tommi PS. tip for the Tripadvisor readers: For more space we recommend reserving the standard, superior or the JrSuite and of course : ask for the room on the lakeside. On our own website you'll find the room showcases with sizes, facilities etc. and reservation can be done directly with the best available rate and reservation conditions. Coffee / tea makers can be arranged to the room when requested.

Dear juliajkemppinen, Thanks for the pointers you experienced during your visit. It's great that you enjoyed your stay and made effort to publish it too. In addition to serve our customers - we want to be as flexible as we possible can. Early check in and late check-out can be granted when possible, especially for individual reservations. Thanks also for the feedback on the burger. I'll remember to tell the chef that we have "nailed " it this time. Hopefully we'll see you again here at Hotelli Alba With best regards, Tommi

We spent one night in hotel Alba due to family celebration. we had a standard room which was reasonably priced and completely adequate to our needs (shower and change of clothes, later sleep) but in standard room there is no coffee making facilities. Furniture was obviously IKEA's design which usually means that it works alright. However our pillows had certainly seen much better days. Too bad. Otherwise a four star visit... Breakfast was very very good.

Hi Tiltman, Thank you for your review. It's great to hear that your celebrations went as planned and your stay was comfortable. I'm afraid not all of the rooms have coffee making possibility but we can arrange it if requested. Just as we can arrange new pillows too. I'm sorry to hear that the pillow did not meet your standards; we need to do some inventory - I'm sure we should be able to spot out the bad ones. And of course for all our customers - If you don't enjoy the pillow - request for change, we are happy to help! I see you had a four star visit - great! For a three-star hotel - that's just warms our hearts! Thanks again - and hopefully we'll meet again at Alba With best regards,
