“Amazing!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We stayed in a beautiful room, felt like we were in a loft. Beautiful view, comfortable bed and the restaurant was to die for! The Slow Food concept was great, it felt like a nice way to eat and to live actually. I will definitely be looking into it more.
I wish we had more time to spend there, and that it was a little warmer so we could use the pool.

I recently attended a conference at this site, and thought it was a wonderful, relaxing, beautiful venue. The Slow Food restaurant was great, and featured a spectacular panna cotta. Overall, a relaxing place in the countryside that helps you focus, whether on personal or business activities. Great place!!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have very nice vaulted ceilings.

We decided to go the truffle fair in Alba few weeks before it, so most hotels there were sold-out. Luckily we googled and found the Albergo dell'Agenzia Lodging - great option, about 20 minutes far from Alba, and away from the confusion there.

Albergo was built in an old monastery and is also part of a gastronomic university. The rooms are not extremely luxurious, and the breakfast is good, but not top. However, around the hotel you have a church that is patrimony of UNESCO, and the whole area is worth a good walk. Walking distance to this hotel you will also find other great restaurants, off the Albergo own.

We liked a lot, it's worth knowing when going to Piemonte.

Our travel coordinator stumbled across this unique hotel and we fully enjoyed our two nights with them. The 'campus' houses a school of gastronomy and the Banca del Vino, bank of wine, for the entire country. We were able to tour the wine bank, with a student guide, and enjoy a wine tasting of the local production. The staff is extremely friendly and the adjacent 'slo food' restaurant was excellent. The property is centrally located for those exploring the wines of the Borolo region. Our room was spacious, but average, and not what I expected for the price. Breakfast was included in our rate and the variety and selection were excellent.

The facility is amazing. The staff was professional, but not overly friendly. The wi-fi was just OK, with too many spotty locations in some second floor rooms. Considering its outstanding rating by other TA reviewers, it did not fully meet our expectations.

We stayed there because a couple friend of us was going to get married there. Excellent hotel, nice staff, good rooms but, for us, the very best of this hotel is the restaurant! The food and the wine are just amazing!!! It is a great opportunity the taste the flavours of Piemonte!!! We wouldn't expect anything else because this hotel is part of the gastronomic sciences university of Piemonte! A little bit pricy but it's worth all of it!

Reviewed 31 July 2013

This is a very subjective review, tainted perhaps by our experiences elsewhere in Piedmont in hotels and albergos which were small, simple, but cosy.
The hotel is on large grounds attached to the Culinary University. Unfortunately the Michelin restaurant formally in the grounds has moved up the road a few miles, and the one meal we had was OK, but only OK compared to the very high standards to Piedmontese cuisine. Breakfast was OK, but you get the idea when I say that scrambled egg and bacon was on offer - a significant fraction of guests are, I guess, businessmen/women.
The rooms were large and clean and the bathrooms too.
In summary, OK, but not memorable. And fairly expensive, for Piedmont.
