“So quiet at night, you can leave your window open”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

Just spent 5 nights at this hotel with a group of photographers for a workshop. The level of cleanliness and spaciousness of the room was exceptional. Breakfast was a huge buffet of "do it yourself" and the selection was vast. The short walk to the dowtown area is very manageable and the main avenue is filled with restaurants that have outdoor seating and the clothing stores are enough to max your credit card to the limit!
Was assigned to a 1st floor smoking room, but, the room did not have a hint of stale odor and i loved being just one floor up for a quick exit via the stairwell in the morning so as not to have to wait for the elevator

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street

We stayed 3 nights and found the staff excellent, the position is 10 minutes walk from the main squares. The rooms are large, clean and well equipped. Breakfast is a great spread. Staff really helpful. Parking secure. Would return for sure.

This is our third time at this fine Hotel but this time we had a wonderful surprise. We had dinner for the first time and the dinner was exceptional the pasta pomadora was served with fresh grape tomatoes, the pasta had a wonderful flavor. My lamb chops were cooked to perfection as was my husbands sirloin steak. After five years of visiting Alba this was by far our best meal. Do give it a try.

Came here as part of a group of about 20 people, rooms on the 6th floor were classed as a superior and met/exceeded our expectations. Evening meal and breakfast were all to a high standard. Only a very short walk into the old part of town which has many lovely bars and restaurants. Really a very nice hotel from which to base a touring holiday of this fabulous area. A pool would have been nice but in reality we have been too busy probably to use it. The wine yards and the Castillo Barolo are worth a visit.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 6th floor and had no problems at all.

Dear Guest,

There is a specific reason why we did not make a swimming pool. We have two types of guests: a business one, which would not have the time to use it; and a eno-gastronomic tourism one, which - as you told - would have not time... too. We have a little gym, and the neighborhoods of Hotel Calissano are good for walking and running!

After this, thank you for your so kind review! We do hope to see you again at Hotel Calissano.

Best regards

In Alba for friends wedding but this was a lovely hotel! Clean, modern fresh & very close to the main piazza & shops. Room & bed were very comfortable, as too was the shower. B/fast was included but as I can only eat GF foods there wasn't much of a choice but there were crackers, cakes, fruit & yogurt - all GF!
No gym nor swimming pool/ terrace. Car parking is available in the basement free.
Also have Internet, TV ( only BBC world news though) fridge, hair dryer, safe, but no iron only laundry service.
Beds very comfortable - great night sleep. The staff even helped book me an appointment at the local Karastase salon a 5 mins walk from the hotel. We found the staff to be totally helpful & kind.
Would we sty here again most definitely!

Room Tip: Our room overlooked a factory behind the disused rail line- not too bad if you not looking for a ro...

Good morning,
we are very proud of our gluten-free proposals: it's very important that everyone can feel comfortable here... though he is far from home!

We have a gym actually: it's quite little, but very well prepared with top level equipment; about the iron, we cannot lend it to the rooms because of the very strict Italian laws in matter of security, due to the wooden floor in all rooms. About the staff, we are happy you liked them: they are always available and happy to help you having a nice stay.

We really hope to have you as our guests again, when you will come back to Alba and the Langhe!

Kind regards

First of all, Alba is worth a visit of at least two nights (lovely old city center with a lot of good restaurants). And the perfect hotel to visit this city and its neighborhood is certainly this Calissano. It looks a bit cold and business-like from the outside, but inside the hotel feels very comfortable and the people are very friendly and helpful.
The rooms are perfect (we had a superior, our friends had a suite - top on the topfloor).
Don't forget to take your aperitif in the hotel: delicious morsels will accompany your drinks.
Loved it and felt a bit like a wine-trader in its favorite hotel to meet the best wine producers from Barollo and Barbaresco.

Oh yes, perfect location, it's just 5 minutes by foot to the old city center and the major shopping street. And very quiet!

By the way, if you want to see the vineyards in a special and relaxed way, book a segway (www.albawaytours.com - Alba Hills), very recommendable experience. They have their office only 5 minutes away from the hotel.

Dear Guest,
thank you for your review. Letting the guests feel fine is our main goal, and we are so happy when we manage to do this!

As we always tell, we really think we owe much to Alba and the Langhe: working in a so nice place helps us to do a good job. We hope to see you again, maybe in our top season, which is from October to November for the wine picking and the truffle!

Kind regards
