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

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

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

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,

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. Especially now when the season is changing to spring the walk from Alba to the city via Rantaraitti is quite nice and very easy to manage. Thank you for your recommendation - we hope to see you soon again! With best regards,

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

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

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!
