I have stayed at Alpina many, many times. Now the reception staff is gone and I miss that. Also, could not get wifi to work in my room #33. Also, book in room had outdated info for wifi and no info on calling reception from my room. So I had to walk down the street again. 3 times went to reception, never did get wifi.... until overnight. It did attach sometime in the early morning hours. Very inconvenient since I was traveling the next day and needed to be able to reach the airline. Also, I like a washcloth in my room.

Bad experience and not worth for the listed price.
Actually the room condition is not same as the photos shown on the website. The room is old, dilapidated and with bad smell. Two wash basins and a large mirror facing the sleeping bed. You have to go to another hotel front desk to check in because there is no staff in the front desk.
