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.

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,

Excellently situated for those who are visiting the University of Jyvaskylä Department of Physics. In addition, the hotel is just beside a beautiful lake. But the rooms are so tiny that they are definitely not suitable for claustrophobics. However, there was a pleasant surprise in the form of instant coffee available in the room - it was the best cup of instant coffee I have ever had.

Hi EijaMaija, Thank you for your views of our hotel. It's great to hear you enjoyed your stay. The lake area and the Ylistö bridge can be quite spectacular, especially in the evening. The bridge lights is just recently renewed and we enjoy them very much. Some of the rooms are tiny. The economy single is only 11m2 but because of the low rate - very popular too. My favourites are the standard rooms and JrSuites. Both of them are availalable with lakeside view and JrSuite has a private sauna.... even from the steam room you can see the lake! Thanks again for you short review - we hope to see you again in the future, * With best regards, Tommi S

The location of this hotel is perfect for relaxing after long days in a conference. The views over the lake if you choose to sit and enjoy them are stunning at any time of day. I also hired a bike one evening and enjoyed cycling around the lake in the late summer sunshine. The hotel has a good restaurant with a wide choice of fresh local food for breakfast and this is include din the room rate. I also enjoyed a tasty club sandwich with a nice glass of house wine one evening and it was good value. I had a simple basic room which had a good shower and a kettle and hairdryer were provided. The staff were very helpful and friendly and I would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

Haifa, Israel165 contributions101 helpful votes
Overall the stay was without problems - comfortable, with decent wifi, a great breakfast, and all the needed additions. The room was very small - no room to move around, but nonetheless with bed, cabinets, separate bathroom (also small), desk and TV. The view over the lake is beautiful. The location is a bit outside of the downtown, but is directly across a pedestrian bridge to the university and a 15-20 minute walk to the downtown and the convention center along the shore of the lake (beware of rollerbladers and bikers). Breakfast was great, with the standard fare plus Finnish/Scandanavian foods like muesli and porridge. Vegetarian burgers seem to be a specialty in Finland, and the burger at the hotel restaurant was great.

Hi E_Donald_Stein, Thank you for your review and for the picture too. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. The room you visited is our economy room and it's the smallest that we have - but also the second most requested too because of the inexpensive rate. The room size is only 11m2 and we recommend it for shorter visits. For more space we recommend to reserve standard, superior or the JrSuites. . The air-conditioning is working through out the hotel and in Superior and JrSuite rooms you can adjust it yourself. Lake view is in Standard and JrSuite rooms - and especially in the summer: it is spectacular! Thanks again for visiting and for the review We hope to see you again, With best regards,

Stayed here for two nights for the Finnish Air Force 100th Anniversary Air Show just up the road at Tikkakoski. We booked a junior suite which comes with a living area and a sauna off the bathroom. The lake view is amazing, we ate in the restaurant one evening which was very good. It's an easy walk along the lake front to the harbour and then turn left and walk into town. The second night we ate in town as the restaurant has a limited menu and we'd had tries the items that interested us. Breakfast choice was good but identical both days, also room cleanliness needs improving which is why it didn't get an excellent rating.

Hi SugarloafView, Thank you for your review. It's great to hear you enjoyed your stay. The Airshow was great! And lots of people visiting Jyväskylä too for those lovely, sunny days. Yes the Alba a La Carte menu: It includes seasonal dishes and ingredients that are fresh and available from local producers. We try to build it the way that it is tempting and meets our guests needs. It's great if you found a suitable dinner place for the second night: Jyväskylä has lots to offer these days. Thanks for the feedback about the cleaning, I will see that this info will reach the floor manager. They are doing a very good job - but looks that in your room - we did not quite reach our goals. Thanks again for visiting and we hope to see you soon again, With best regards,

Medium sized, relatively modern hotel near the end of the big lake. Next to pedestrian bridge across the lake to the university. The place for visitors to the university to stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful, everyone speaks English, signs in Finnish and English. Medium sized rooms, excellent breakfast buffet. Sauna facilities (of course) but here you can actually jump into the lake from the hotel dock as part of the ritual. Separate hours for men and women are posted. The lobby, bar and restaurant all merge together so this area is usually busy. Not so much close by, its about a 20 minute walk along the lake shore to the train station and center of town.

Hi David M. Thank you for your review. It sounds that your visit met your expectations. Great! We are happy that among other pointers you mentioned us as "relatively modern hotel". It's no secret that we have been renovating the standard rooms, lobby area, restaurant toilets and the meeting rooms. We started it 2016 and finished this spring. It's great to hear the efforts have been noticed. Thanks again and we hope to see you soon again, With best regards,
