I found the hotel to be a pleasant surprise. Easily accessible with plenty of parking, beautiful grounds, excellent restaurant, plentiful buffet for breakfast. The only negative part was having been assigned a two-floor room with just the bed on the second/loft level. It would have been quite unpleasant to have to use the bathroom during the night and have to walk down stairs to reach the bathroom. If I had been alerted of this option at the time I booked I would have asked for a regular room with bed and bathroom on the same level.
We were dumped here by our Back Roads tour. Our room was basic , University dorm standard, quite a way out of town. All meals were taken in another building about 400 metres away. The actual buildings in this refurbished monastery are very impressive and now part of a private university that teaches the Slow Cooking gourmet style of cuisine, including an amazing wine bank. Folk that wax eloquently about this hotel are rather taken by these latter attractions. Do be aware that the property also has a full 5 star hotel not to be confused by the el cheapo hotel Back Roads provided on our 'luxury' tour.
I spent 3 days at La Corte Albertina - the hotel is amazing, clean, organized and inserted in a fantastic location. The staff is great, friendly and it really makes you feel welcome and at home. For sure I would come back many other times, is a magic place.
We stayed here for one night as part of a Back Roads tour. It was really strange, 2 hotels in one, almost like rich here, poor there. Dinner is available across the courtyard at the other hotel & I can honestly say the set meal we were give was the best I have eaten since coming to Italy 2 weeks ago. Breakfast was poor & again out the door & down the road! Our room was adequate & the bathroom small. There is a "wine bank" within the complex which us run by the university & worth a visit. Free wi fi really sums up a second rate hotel.
Very warm welcome, beautiful and spacious room and all this in an astonishing environment, on the campus of the University of Gastronomic Studies and close to a great Wine Cave and a wellness center. The small village of Pollenzo offers an interesting historic quarter and a very good restaurant, everything within 5 minutes walking distance.
The hotel is well located for those visiting the little lovely town of Pollenzo however I took issue with it's ties with the Slow Food Movement not really coming through in the quality and offerings of the hotel. For the price we paid I think they are taking advantage of their location but do have a lot of promise - I hope to see changes the hotel makes in future.
The hotel was reasonably priced (we did book 3 rooms for 3 nights more than a month in advance, given the white truffles season) and easily accessible from the highway (at least compared to others we've been staying in). Please note it is located in Pollenzo (which is part of Bra but has its own name on the GPS) A previous traveller commented there wasn't much and it was kind of boring...it should be clear that this is purely a 'base camp' from which you move in the region for food and wine. Within 15 to 20 kms you reach all the major food and drink spots (Barolo, Barbaresco, Alba, etc etc) Our rooms had a problem on arrival, some sort of sewage smell probably coming up from the bathroom pipes - after ventilation and deodorant spray (by the very efficient staff) this was dealt with. The staff has been great and helpful throughout our stay. Breakfast was good, a bit tight on certain items on a busy morning but otherwise in line with what I would expect from a 3 star hotel. Parking within the grounds is plentiful.…
There is nothing to hate, but nothing to rave about here. Hotel was somewhat attractive and well-located within the town, but there is very little to see and do. The adjacent winery (excellent tour) and hotel were about the only other attractions. We had dinner at the other hotel, and it was much nicer. Our room here was small and dated. It felt a bit like a nice college dormitory. The view was nice, with the church and the slow food school, but far from exciting. Staff was fine. Mehh.
1. The place is a former ranch right in the middle of the old square with rooms looking at the church and castle 2. Plenty of parking 3. Really good.breakfast 4. Sort of butique hotel. 5.their simplest rooms were also really good. 6. Good location in langhe
Absolutely fabulous! What a treat...Beautiful old estate, former monastery in the Italian countryside of Pollenzo...the reception area is lovely, the staff welcoming and helpful at all times. The accommodations are spacious, beds comfortable, the bathroom is very large, good hot water! There is a beautiful church on the property, as well as the Slow Food university...Pollenzo is not a vibrant nightlife area, so you'll need a car or taxi to go into Bra in the evening. The adjacent hotel which is a sister hotel has a fantastic restaurant which is part of Slow Food...Very good!
