Nice Well Located Hotel
The hotel is well located and close to everything in Lavagna and beaches. The train station is a short walk away. The staff is ultra attentive and very accommodating. The only downside, for those driving, is that the hotel has no parking and street parking is VERY limited.

Great position and quiet.
The hotel is in the centre of Lavagna, close to the train station, beach, bars, restaurants and the market. (You can walk to Chiavari and back quite easily.) It is set back from the road away from traffic with a seating area in a front garden. The staff are very friendly and there is a bar service. The buffet breakfast was adequate but mainly catered to sweet-toothed Italians. The bathroom shower in our room was difficult to use but the bedroom was comfortable. The centre of Lavagna is lovely and Cinque Terre can easily be reached by rail changing at Sestri Levante. The only downside is the beach is on the other side of the railway line but you soon get used to this.

When we arrived at Hotel Alba they were not expecting us and told us that they did not take bookings through, even though had given us a Confermation number and a Hotel Confirmation number. We were told that they only take bookings through Needless to say this was a freightening experience, late in the evening when we arrived. Eventually we were able to work things out and we were able to stay at this disappointing location.

European Vacation
We traveled for 10 days in three European countries and stayed in 10 different locations. This hotel was the only one that didn't have front desk staff that spoke any English. The gentleman was very accommodating and did his best to understand us. The hotel advertised free parking but the space was so small and tight quarters that the hotel owner/manager had to move several other cars to fit ours in. He then offered to do the parking for us which was great but would have been extremely inconvenient if he had needed to use it again before we left. The area the hotel is located in is not a typical tourist area but its in a typical Italian neighborhood and was great to walk around in and experience. We found a really good restaurant near by and several small English but we managed. The room itself was just ok, had nice windows that opened and the wifi worked. The shower however was unexceptable in my mind....I had to squeeze to get in because the opening was so small. When I dropped something I had to get out and reach in and retrieve room to bend over. I understand that the European showers are much smaller than the American one abut this one was a real challenge.the free breakfast was the worst one on our entire trip, consisted of of some bread/crackers, jelly and coffee. There was a restaurant on site but we didn't use it. Plus side was the pleasant gentleman at the front desk, down side language, breakfast and shower.

L'établissement est bien situé tout près de la gare ferroviaire et de l'embarcadère des bateaux; c'est pratique pour la visite des Cinque Terre et les autres sites de la côte ligurienne; Portofino, Portovenere, Gênes; nous n'avons pas eu besoin d'utiliser notre voiture. Mais surtout, nous avons particulièrement apprécié la gentillesse de tout le personnel de l'hôtel et son incroyable disponibilité pour satisfaire tous nos désirs. Si nous revenons dans la région, nous retournerons dans cet hôtel.
