Reviewed 18 June 2013

We picked this hotel for it's location only about 7 minute walk to the train station. Our room was beautiful, with sitting area and bedroom separate. Very helpful reception personnel. Hotel was clean, bathroom was small but adequate. We had to catch a 6 am train so missed breakfast. The hotel is close enough to the beach to walk. There are many restaurants on the beach boardwalk.

Room Tip: We had room 142 a great room

Well situated near the train and bus station and 10 minutes from the beach, but nothing else of interest that I could find in easy walking distance. Difficult to find decent restaurants though plenty of posh shops! But fine for a stopover or business night especially out of season when very reasonable. Mine was a family room full of beds but comfortable and I had a good nights sleep. Decor a bit traditional to put it mildly (cherubs?) and lighting a bit random in the room - reading lights didn't work. Clean and welcoming staff, and the fact that my room was not ready when I checked in at 17.00 was not really a problem. I realised that Italy has different plugs from the rest of Europe - one would think that the hotel would provide a standard continental socket - and there were no foreign TV news stations despite 100+ Italian TV programmes. And Wifi pretty poor - not a great business hotel but it isn't meant to be, and all in all I would stay here again for the value for money and the location.

Room Tip: Back of the hotel in summer (though front ok during the winter with windows closed)

Hotel Alba is in the heart of Pescara and offers a good night's rest in a city that deserves more attention. The hotel is comfortable, clean and run with a friendly attitude and offers a good breakfast. All in all a first rate stopover. It's greatest advantage is its location surrounded by buzzy bars and real restaurants serving very good food.

I stayed here for one night after a late flight in from Stansted, in a first floor family room (beds: double and a small single)

Location: 10 mins walk from beach, but also 5 mins from the central bus and train stations - quiet area

general decor of hotel: lots of murals with cherubs, etc in the rooms as well as all the public rooms - interesting and not overpowering - makes this place a nice choice if you want a change from formulaic hotels.

Room: main bed big & comfortable, but small bed is only just over 5 ft long - only a small window and it faced on to a narrowish pedestrianised street, which would get annoying if there a week but fine for one night's stay

bathroom: shoehorned into a corner of the bedroom, so smallish, with only a shower, but good fttings and the free toiletries are ok quality

breakfast: best thing about the hotel - no hot food (unless you count toast!) but great choice buffet - juices, tea, coffee, pastries, cereals, fresh fruit - helpful staff on hand to assist

All in all a good choice for a short stay.

Centrally located, near great shopping, 10 minute walk to beach. Lots of restaurants within walking distance. Hotel staff was very courteous and friendly. Very clean. Rooms were somewhat small but comfortable. Breakfast was good but limited selection. Great coffee. Good for short stays.

This is our 3rd time in Hotel Alba and we have enjoyed every time. Great location. Spotlessly clean. Lovely breakfast room and buffet style breakfast. Great staff always willing to help. Thanks again!

Stayed here in July 2012 with my gf. The hotel has a great location in the centre of beautiful Pescara, in the middle of the shopping district. Classy shopping, at that. The decor is the hotel is really beautiful and luxurious. The regular rooms didn't look very exciting and we saw that they very from quite big to really small. However the hotel was full and they gave us one of the two suites. It was an amazing and really really beautiful room. On top of that the breakfast was good and the lady who made the coffee was super friendly and attentive. I reckon i might have rated the hotel lower if we'd had a regular room, though the decor and service were outstanding. But the suite - and the free upgrade - legendary. Thank you so much.

Room Tip: Ask for a free upgrade to the suite ;)
