Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 July 2013

Its design and style is another one of "contemporary business hotels" (with a little overdose of stainless/marble/glassy/shining gold looks) that you normally find in all European less urban areas. What makes it very special is:
1. the smile and frienly response of personnel
2. the top quality food you get at a respectable price
The rooms are very clean and very quiet regardless of the floor or orientation of your room.
The air conditioning was OK as it was extremely humid with 34C outside, with a sensitive temperature of more than 40C. Although, it was evident to me that fresh air intake for air changes in the room was not that efficient and at some time in the night I had to open the window to feel better.
The food was perfect! I had as a starter proschiutto con melone with a fillet of beef medium done. The wine was a red Barbera (old and rather strong) which left no "dark signs" next morning.
I have to underline again how friendly the personnel is in this place!

Room Tip: for a business hotel, excellent! I would think again to go there with my wife as we prefer to have m...

This hotel is (or at least looks) new and has good, modern rooms. The free underground parking is very convenient. The hotel is located 5 minutes away from Alba center, which can easily be reached by foot. Good value for money. I stayed here one night.

We stayed just one night in Alba, and wanted a hotel in walking distance from the city center.

Upon arrival we where surprised with the helpful people at the front-desk. Not the regular way of just checking in and receiving the keys, but the where really friendly explaining everything and helping us out to find some addresses we where inquiring.

The rooms are big, rain shower, big double beds, free wifi. Car parking is not a problem, plenty of space in the garage. Breakfast buffet the classical way and options. Nothing special but good quality of food.

Dear Guest,
we really thank you for this so good review. We are glad you spent a good time at Calissano: we are happy everytime we see that people feel like being at home, this is our main purpose.

Position is one of our points of strength: probably, no other Hotel in the area is in a so quiet zone and so close to the city center.

We hope to see you again soon: we are at disposal for any further need of assistance.

Very kind regards,
Santino Gerlotto

We enjoyed our stay in Hotel Calissano in Alba. I was surprised by its elegance, thinking it was going to be less stylish than others we had booked in the larger cities. It is a newer hotel, everything was spotless. Staff was very helpful. Relatives of ours had called before we arrived. They helped call them back and translate for us. It is an excellent location to walk to the piazzas for lunch, dinner or shopping. I found Alba to be one of my favorite shopping areas in my two week stay in Italy. I found Alba to be a safe, clean city. The view from our window was a bit industrial but that was fine. I would visit Alba again and would return to this hotel.

Room Tip: There were four room booked in our party and they were all equally good.

Dear Sir,
our main purpose is to let our guests have a nice stay: if this means helping you with translations, just ask! This is something we really care: trying to answer all requests of our hosts!

About Alba... many, many guests say they feel like being a paradise: it is a clean, historical, beautiful, safe city; with the Langhe, it is probably one of the nicest places in Italy. We hope you will come back to Alba; when you will, we will be more than glad to host you again!

Thank you very much for your review, kind regards

We have had an enjoyable two night stay at the Hotel Calissano in Alba. Its convenient location in a quiet neighborhood only a short walk from the old city center was perfect for our intention of leaving our car parked in the secure free parking garage beneath the hotel. We had a superior room on the fifth floor and must say that it is certainly four star quality with lots of space, plenty of closet and shelf space, a small refrigerator, large openable windows in the main room as well as in the huge bath, and a superbly comfortable bed. The hotel itself is decorated in a formal motif but the staff is super friendly and willing to help with any need. Breakfast was included in the very reasonable rate as well as Internet access, which was quite fast. Breakfast is a very adequate buffet of the usual items you expect and was served in the hotel restaurant. The staff was very responsive to our request for ice and wine glasses and gave us excellent advice for what we wanted to see in the city center. The parking garage is one of the best we have seen, with an amazing amount of space for each car. It is nice to stay in a fine hotel and not feel as if the staff expects to be tipped every time you walk by. If in Alba again we would certainly pick this hotel, as they deliver on expectation without fanfare.

Room Tip: Choose a superior room and be happy.

Dear Mr. Ron,
up to us this is the best thing we can read: "If in Alba again we would certainly pick this hotel". It means we managed to let you feel as home, and really hope we can make it again.

Please, consider that our beautiful land helps as so much to have great tourism, and it does all the year long. Few things are better than visiting the Langhe and enjoy their mild climate during summer: and, if you will, we are going to give you other advices based on your personal feeling about what you like better to see.

Thank you so much,
Kind regards
Santino Gerlotto

We stayed for three nights in a superior room. Everything about the room was very good, clean with all amenities, air con, very comfortable bed, very big bathroom - no bath but a rain shower. View from windows was towards the old town and across a semi- industrial looking area, with the hills beyond, nt a problem. Car parking is superb and inclusive. Breakfast selection was average for this type of hotel. On a rainy evening we decided to eat at the restaurant and we had a superb dinner in what is a casual dining area. The staff were all exceptionally friendly, helpful giving good advice on where to eat and what to see. The hotel is located just outside the old town, a three minute walk at most. All in all this hotel provides everything you need and is ideally located to explore Alba and as a base for day trips around the wonderful hilltop towns.

Dear Guest,
we are really happy that you enjoyed your time here, and that you appreciated our Bistrot. Our location is one of our strenghts, just outside the city centre: it is very easy to reach by car, then guests can use the free parking and totally forget the automobile if they want to visit the historical Alba, 3 minutes far by slowly walking.

We do hope to host you some other time, and give you new advices on what to do and see.

Best regards
