Booked at short notice for a weekend break. The hotel was dark and unwelcoming. It took an age to book in at reception. Eventually got to our room which consisted of a double bed pushed up against the wall and a barely functional wardrobe. The bedding appeared to have seen better days and did not look all that clean.The bathroom was dirty so even without opening our suitcase we decided we couldn't spend another minute in there. We managed to book in another hotel ( The Ibis which was superb ). When we returned to the Alba to collect our bags and return the key we were offered a bigger room, but as far as we were concerned all that meant was a bigger disaster behind the door.
