Once arrived to Alter Hotel You are captured by a special environment, where kindness and warmth are protagonists. The Hotel, facing Monviso mountain, is close to Saluzzo, Staffarda, Racconigi and Fenestrelle. An unusual Piedmont, much more attractive if seen through the windows of an ex textile factory of the late nineteenth century, whose restoration focuses on design. Clean lines and generous spaces are precious allies in harmony research. This is why rooms benefit of high quality materials and unique details and some of them offer a private terrace. Fresh fruits, water and newspapers each morning. The Bistrot Restaurant Lacet proposes a rich choice, with a look to the traditional dishes from Piedmont, also reaching contemporaries perspectives. Fitness Area, in addition to the tennis court in the park and the squash court, a magnificent steam bath hall, hydro-massage showers and the possibility to require esthetical and relaxing treatments in our massages area. Finally, an unique experience, the visit to the vintage car collection of the 20'ies and the '30ies.

On arrival the reception lady was fantastic. Showed us to our room and offered to help with the bags. The loft room was nicely decorated and large. The shower was terrible. It was small with jets coming from everywhere and only a curtain to keep the water in, ensuring that the

We stayed two nights in this charming hotel and as we did not know the area we went by the other reviews. How lucky we were to chose this 4* hotel, lovely accommodation, everything you needed and very welcoming and helpful staff. The hotel is very artistically renovated, very

When we visit the Alter hotel it was a culinair tour to Piemonte and Veneto. Wine and food were the main ingredients. Although it is a great hotel, breakfast and the special diner were a bit disappointed. No culinair highlight of Piemonte. The wine tasting...i can read the

Stayed at the hotel for two nights just after Easter. On first sight the hotel is really nice, cool building, art, garden and nice room. Overall the experience was not bad but a bit odd. The room, one of the bigger ones with an upstairs loft, was nice but so filled with gadgets

Response from AlterHotel, Responsabile relazioni con la clientela at Alter Hotel
Responded 29 Jun 2017
Dear Mrs. MimmiPretoria, we are thankfull for the time spent to give us a feedback. Our Hotel is a mix between historic (firstly was built by priest to produce distillates and that is the reason of our magnificient entrance) and modern (after the re construction and opening of 2006) and every year we invest to provide a better service. The electric technology to open the doors, with microchip card, could be not easy at first usage but provide us information about the presence of customers, the ability to operate air conditioning and instant security support. This March we install a new faster internet connection and when something technical need to be fixed we immediately call the assistence. The next step will be the change of our plastic shower curtain, that nowadays we clean daily, because cleaning has always been one of our strengths. Our Restaurant has wonderfull interior terrace, overlooking the interior garden, and only when it rains we serve dinner inside. Thanking you again for your advices we hope to welcome you again. Regards, Luca

Gent.mo Signore. La ringrazio per l'attenzione che riserva ala ns. struttura. Il saluzzese e in generale la provincia di Cuneo ha molte attrattive sia dal punto di vista storico, sia gastronomico, sia culturale. Siamo soliti consigliare, a chi piace la montagna, le Sorgenti del Po sotto la mole tutelare del Monviso (patrimonio UNESCO), i borghi montani di Ostana e Crissolo. Per chi preferisce la pianura: il centro storico di Barge, l'Abbazia di Staffarda, la cittadina di Saluzzo con il suo borgo arroccato sulla collina, il Castello della Manta (proprietà FAI). A pochi km i Castelli Sabaudi di Racconigi e Pollenzo con la sede di Slow Food e la famosa Banca del Vino. Il saluzzese è anche la porta delle Langhe: Alba, Bra, Barolo, Grinzane Cavour, Barbaresco. A seconda dei periodi dell'anno non mancano manifestazioni enogastronomiche, il Tartufo di Alba, il Marrone di Cuneo, i Formaggi di Bra e rievocazioni storiche. Gli spunti turistici insomma non mancano. Rimaniamo a disposizione per qualsiasi dubbio o delucidazione di cui possa necessitare e, nella speranza di poterLa accogliere presto come ns. gradito ospite, colgo l'occasione per porgere Cordiali saluti Fabrizio Alter Hotel****Reception
