Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 July 2010

If you were looking to open a hotel and wanted to visit somewhere to understand how to differentiate yourself from the crowd of medium price hotels and to put clear blue water between you and the budget operators then you would struggle to find a better place to come for an object lesson than this.

From start to finish the service here is first class, highly professional, supremely friendly but without ever being overbearing.

On arrival the owner quickly booked us in and sent us off to the garden with a glass of wine whilst he completed registration.

The room was beautifully done with very interesting lighting, excellent flat screen TV, good bed and lovely bathroom. The whole hotel has been cleverly accessorised to lift it above the norm but without just using the "normal" designer pieces.

Front of house were always friendly and full of great recommendations on restaurants, places to visit, etc.

As others have mentioned the only slight downside is the distance from town which is a good 25 minute walk but there has to be some trade off I suppose.

Alba was great and we will definitely be back.

Nico owns and runs the Hotel Langhe. We arrived late afternoon after a long drive. "Sit down and have a glass of wine and then I will help you with your luggage were his first words."
For us, the perfect gig. Beautifully appointed rooms, and an atmosphere relaxed and user friendly.
We strongly recommend this hotel which will enhance anyone's holiday.

I must admit I was a little dubious when we first drove down the driveway into the hotel. Its in a residential area not within walking distance of the city centre (but that is such not an issue if you have a car anyway) - and the outside of the hotel looks mediocre. We picked a 3 start because it was our honeymoon and we had stayed at some pretty amazing places but for somewhere we weren't planning on being there much, I couldn't justify it. But my concerns did not last long - the interior is beautifully finished, the staff were very helpful and attentive - and its very good value for a 3 star. It looks to be more of a business hotel which was fine for us because we weren't really staying much in the room. The breakfast was really good, buffet style - cold meat, cheese, bread, cereal and pastries. The only downside, and I was determined not to focus on it too much because I liked the hotel otherwise - its either the walls are thin or the tiling on the floors - it got very loud in the room when other guests were arriving or leaving their rooms - but if you can tolerate this, its a great little place. Next time we are back in the Piedmont area, we plan on staying here.

wow, where do I start? Arriving at the hotel, we were surprised at the ease of checking in. After we settled in, we were invited to come down and enjoy a glass of wine, some cheese and ham. The room was wonderful. Bed was very comfy. The breakfast was great. The staff was always one step ahead of what you needed. Complimentary bottles of water in the room and when we checked out we were handed a bag with bread sticks infused with truffles! The price is amazing for this hotel and the staff go above and beyond expectations. GRAZIE MILLE!

Spent a night here as part of an organised self guided cycle trip. The hotel, while not impressive from the outside, had been newly decorated on the inside with a very comfortable room with some fascinating furniture.

The Manager was incredibly helpful with regards to restaurant and Gelato suggestions.

The only negative point is that the hotel is quite a walk from the city centre (<8mins by bike though)
