It was quite close to the bus station and close to Piedmont's wine country. The breakfast was okay and the staff helped us get into a wine tour. The interior, while fine, was dated. There wasn't any public transportation readily available for us in Alba so our trip to a winery was 20 Euros each way for essentially a 5-minute car ride. If we were to do it again, we would have just rented a car from Turin for the day and driven down to Alba (or Asti or whichever vineyard you found). The added benefit to this would have been the ability to enjoy the rolling hills and vineyards all around that area.
Good room and parking facilities, restaurant with excellent food. Close to the old city, walking distance.
We enjoyed our stay very much, it was so welcoming, its closeness to the centre was excellent.
Very close to downtown Alba.
The room space and the wine list in the restaurant.
The hotel is modern, with large clean rooms. Located in short walking distance to the center of Alba.
the light airy decor of the room matched with a fair degree of comfort.
Large and confortable room. A bit expensive for this area.
The best thing was the efficiency and helpfulness of the staff. The room was clean, quiet, large and near the city centre for walking.
Hotel staff and room Rooms did not have air conditioning (cooling) no screens on windows
Very helpful and friendly staff. Very nice spacious rooms Hotel a bit hidden away.
The most outstanding thing about the hotel was Nico, who was an outstanding host. He is an expert on local restaurants and sights, and an extremely hospitable and sociable guy. There was nothing we would say we didn't like.
we had a lovely room, a great bathroom, the hotel was silent, the staff was professional and very friendly and we even got a welcome drink and a gift when we checked out! this is a perfect hotel and I would surely stay here again and recommend to everybody! Maybe the neighbourhood was a bit uncosy but that is a minor detail
Perfect!! Wish I could stay longer...
The owner / manager is a delightful gentleman named Nico. He remembered us from about 6 years ago and his attention to detail is remarkable. Location feels secluded and the rooms are quite modern and comfortable. Nico can be counted on to give delicious recommendations of nearby italian restaurants. Super value for what feels like a charming boutique hotel.
We stayed for 1 night in this hotel, but had a very positive experience. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They even managed to book a table at Piazza Duomo restaurant for us.
The Manager/Owner was great and went out of his way to help us - dropped us off in town in his car. Nice surroundings, very quite. Only hicup was the office girl said she set our wake up call - we wanted to leave by 6 am. No wake up call came through, but fortunately we woke up ourselves,but it was then a mad rush to get to the airport on time and very stressful.
The character of the "owner" patron and the charisma of the entire hotel. unfortunately industrial construction over whelms this hotel location, however a gem when considered it is in town - bicycles are avaiiable for loan. They even offered a free pick up from the station.... wonderful.
The hotel is very pleasantly set just outside Alba looking over the countryside with a stream running past under our balcony. It has been recently renovated with the effective use of much bare steelwork including chairs and railings that had been allowed to rust then treated and waxed. We had a large room with a very modern bathroom, air conditioning and Internet access in the room. The owner was No
Your average corporate conference hotel. Everything was fine, expect that the place has the charme of an airport lounge. But big, nice rooms+bathrooms, friendly staff, easy access. Sits outside of town though, in a bit of a desolate, undeveloped stretch of land.
The hotel is a fairly new facility. The rooms were larger than most hotels we have stayed in in Italy. It was a little off the beaten path but we enjoyed our stay here.
The third time we've stayed for hockey tournament. Always a nice hotel to stay in, comfortable and quiet at night. Good staff n the whole and friendly. Breakfast wasn't as good a last year.
Nice big rooms, good location, easy parking
Very clean with large rooms and good parking facilities. Not a particularly good location but still acceptable.
Location Initial welcom at reception.
good location, spacious room not really
We were impressed by the young man on the reception desk at the time of our arrival. He could not have been more helpful and friendly. The pillows on our bed were hard and uncomfortable. The shower room was small and over furnished. The shower cubicle itself was old and uninviting.
Staff was very helpful and friendly, location, restaurant, bathroom beds could have been more comfortable
Very friendly staff, good location for a city trip, inside parking rooms rather basic, roadside rooms very noisy, Aircondition not working
The location is very good, near both the train station and the "old town." The front desk staff (with one exception) was excellent - very friendly, offering to make dinner reservations, etc. Breakfast was very nice. The room was a little small, and the bed/pillows were hard as a rock. There was one man at the front desk who was downright unfriedly; I was visiting my daughter who lives in town, and he wouldn't let her come up to the room without a passport. He didn't seem to believe that I was using the room as a single room.
Staff were friendly and helpful. The room including the bathroom were very clean. The location was perfect.
Proximity to Barolo wine region, fine dining, and beautiful scenery. Good breakfast at hotel, no hassles. Wi-fi only available in lobby.
A nice hotel not worth the money for it. Not worth the money.
Perfekt location, clean room, private parking. The breakfast could have been a bit bigger.
big room and bathrom. They have only one restaurant, and on saturdays guests can not have a dinner there, because it is ocuppied for a wedding(?!).One restaurant in the village is also busy for wedding! Outside the hotel compuond everything si dirty and poorly maintained..
Location is beautifull, large room and bathroom. Staff not friendly, breakfast very poor and long waiting for new bread and other things. Overpriced menu for diner. We were here end of august and there werent many other guests, bar closed, terraces closed.Room is dark.
We were here for the second time: it is just a lovely hotel with verey friendly staff!
My husband and I had a very relaxing stay. Great pool and grounds. The staff were extremely helpful.
Nice facilities and convienient location close to many of the wine producers in the region. Small historic town was interesting as well.
Everything! Perfect building, perfect staff and excellent service! This 4-star hotel deserve 5 stars!!! No!
enjoyed very much this villa, excelent service and stuff especialy the guy who runs the hotel. none
We had a bit of mixup with our reservation. The manager immediatly reconized this and was quick and extremly generous in fixing the problem. The hotle has a lovely setting with very large rooms. Also he arranged for us to go to an excellent restaurant even though they have a lovely restaruant at the hotel.
The views are stunning, the restaurant terrace is perfect, the room we had was large with a private balcony overlooking the pool and vineyards. good beakfast. Very enjoyable. We would have preferred a more traditional and local menu in this beautiful setting - one with less twist - although some dishes, particularly deserts, were excellent
The staff speciallt the manager
The hotel is beautifully located on a hill over Castiglione Falletto, the swimmingpool is very refreshing on hot summer days, breakfast is on the terrasse overlooking the vineyards.
Although we were there during the off-season the staff was extremely helpful and made our stay really enjoiable
Absolutely beautiful hotel, open two years. Hotel is situated near the village of Serralunga D'Alba, on a hillside overlooking the Barolo wine region. Very close to the city of Alba, which is a medieval treasure. Our room was extremely nice, and had the only real bathroom of any place we stayed on our trip. Very comfortable and quiet. The restaurant faces into a Barolo vineyard. The owner Ricardo supervises everything, and makes sure that everything is perfect. The restaurant serves only locally grown and produced ingredients that are prepared wonderfully. I cannot describe how nice this place really is. I can imagine during picking season this place would be spectacular.
Very good hotel with friendly people. The room was very nice en spacious. One of the best showers ever in a hotel. Breakfast was also very good. We did not eat in the hotel, but the menu looked good and we were told by other people that the food was good. The hotel has a wonderfull view over the hills with the vineyards.
The hotel has a fantastic location in the middle of the Piemonte wine area, close to Barolo and La Morra. The view from the rooms is fantastic and the terrasse of the room suberb. Good breakfast buffet.We really enjoyed our stay. Only small disadvantage: if you want to go out for dinner you need a car to visit other restaurants as the distance to the closest village (Serralunga d'Alba) is about 2 km and too dangerous to walk in the night (small road, no lights). For the season it was very cold, only 5 degrees. There was no room heating on, only after our request it was switched on. For a 4 star hotel this should be done automatically, not after letting guests "freeze" for two days. You also would expect a better soundproof room for this class of a hotel, you can easily hear people talking in the next room.
outstanding quality; perfect quisine; impressive wine list; located in heart of Barolo wine region
Our hosts bent over backwards for us, the location was extremely beautiful, the building was enchanting, the dinner was yummy, the room was large and well-appointed, and we were sorry we only got to stay one day. Oh, and if you're getting married in Italy, this is the place to do it! Don't miss this place... If coming from the US, bring an adaptor if you have electronics to charge
Excellent service - the staff was very friendly and well trained. The rooms were absolutely beautiful and the view unbelievable. They pay a lot of attention to details which makes it a very special experience. Are you kidding me? It was perfect!
Toured around the Piedmonte with visits to Barbaresco, Barolo, Alba
The hotel was in a stunning setting , surrounder by beautiful vineyards.The restaurant was wonderful,fabulous local specialities in a glamerous and intimate setting.The breakfast was exceptional.Rooms were simple but very pleasant and had everything you could need.The beautiful town of Alba only a few km away.
Friendly staff, nice place and outstanding food, it was a perfect stay. The lightning is a bit low in the bath room
Lovely small hotel with great attention to detail, including staff; delightful rooms, magnificent vineyard vistas. Sorry to miss the Michelin star restaurant (closed on Tuesdays). Well recommend the area for wine lovers and the hotel for comfort and personal attention.
The food was excellent and so was the wine list. Breakfast was a pleasure. The staff young and friendly. A free internet wi-fi connection. The room was not on the same level as the food.
Excellent kitchen. Beatiful room. Stunningly situated on hilltop close to Alba. More than a hotel with a restaurant, Locanda del Pilone is a restaurant with hotelrooms.
The view was incredible, pleasant personnel, esp Saviero. Good food, excellent wines, great rooms.
It is a great place to explore the nearby rolling hills of the region and experience their wines. The hotel is very rustic and may not be for everyone. The owner is a character and entertains his guests with his beautiful singing voice at the piano ... The breakfast could be better. I was there for two days only and had the same 2 little cheeses and the 1 local raw salami. It could be just slightly updated with very little effort. My room was not done when I returned from a long day at 6.00 pm.
One of the most beautiful hotels I have ever seen. Small family hotel, nice and comfortable and the staff is very kind. They do not speak too much Englis, but it was not a problem, we undersood each other. Perfect for a romantic tour, especially by car. The shower did not fit to the holder, we had to hold it in our hand. We turned on the heating for the maximum but it was not too warm in the room.
