the only thing i like about the hotel, it had comfortable bed
the staff made me park in the wrong lot and i got a parking ticket. the room was so small ,the room was so cold and drafty .
I liked the location because it is close to my friend's house.
1)The wi-fi is difficult to set up; front desk staff helped me to initially set up the wi-fi, but then the wi-fi would go off-line and it was beyond me to get a new connection. I just gave up due to frustration 2) the room is a dorm room, small and cramped; poor value for the money and not worth the cost. 3) the bathroom lacked a toilet brush.. 4) Parking was not too convenient and several hundred meters from the hotel. As well, the $10 parking fee per night is excessive. Parking should be free for guests paying big bucks for the cramped room... If I had known about the excessive parking fee I would not have booked with Alma.
The rooms are clean and comfortable
There is no gym. The university gym is used and it is inconvenient. The restaurant is not great.
Not much, your staff or the young lady that checked us in was very polite.
Restaurant, small room, parking, we were told they needed license plate number for record, was NOT told how to get out of parkade. I had to pay an additional $10.00 to get out. I would not stay there or recommend again
The location on the university campus was very good. The breakfast was excellent.
The lack of closet space for 2 people with winter gear made the room seem a bit cramped. Not much for close off-site restaurants
University campus location. All staff very friendly & helpful. Clean. Individual a/c control
Bed too firm for comfort (I bring a mattress topper so not a deal-breaker). Please change the coffee in rooms.
Stayed once again at the Alma and enjoyed it.
Staff were really helpful at check-in, special thanks to Jan, who also helped us with a new reservation. Breakfast which was included really good quality.
Room was cold even after adjusting the temp
Location was ideal for my visit, room was surprisingly bigger than i expected
This was exceptionally convenient for a two day conference at the University of Calgary. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was very good - hot and cold items. The room was on the small side but perfectly appointed for the needs of a solo traveler. The free Wi-fi and long distance calls were a welcome bonus.
Fresh, clean and modern look.
Tight room layout results in shins bashing on bed corners.
I loved that a Hotel was actually built right on the University of Calgary campus...made my life much easier. Also, the staff was very accommodating and made special effort to ensure my limited mobility needs were met.
The room was a bit hot and it took me a while to understand how to regulate the temperature to my liking.
Room was very small. Could hear neighbours through the walls.
I really had a great time at Alma.
I actually prefer the smaller rooms when comparing to other hotels.
If I had been given this room as an undergraduate student I would have been overjoyed. The room was neat and updated, which was good. It included the standards - microwave, coffee maker, a small selection of tea and coffee, as well as a bar fridge, etc. We didn't have time for breakfast, so I can't comment on the dining experience.
While overall the hotel room was perfectly serviceable, there were a few small details that the hotel could easily address to improve the experience of guests. Unfortunately, we found hairs in the bedding (likely ones that went through the wash), which was a bit off-putting. The hotel room gets a big thumbs up for being accessible, but the fold-up shower chair showed signs of discoloration, which should be removed with a good cleaning. We also requested an early check-in through Bookings.com and received an email telling us that our request had been sent on to the hotel, but that we should call and confirm. We were leaving for a wedding on a shuttle bus at 3pm, but on phoning the hotel the day before we were told that they could not guarantee a room until 3, which was unfortunate. We ended up getting checked in 10 minutes before 3, which resulted in a round of applause for us when we made it to the bus just in time.
So close and easy to visit my son at school with low pressure.
glass of wine too pricy
Staff were all friendly and polite
Service was great. Staff all friendly and helpful. Bed and bedding comfortable Location great as our daughter is on residence, and we were able to meet up easily. Breakfast included,
Room a bit small. A bit noisy from partying students outside Breakfast could have been better..by including cold cuts or cheeses.
It was really nice to have extra time on checkout that was appreciated as we just finish driving a long way
Bed had hair on it.
All the facilities of the university. We stayed in a dorm room that gets converted in the summer months. I thought the bed was ok but my partner didn't sleep. Internet was blazing fast and parking is a covered lot. Staff was good.
Pool was only open open swim at set times. When I went a lifeguard hadn't shown up so open swim was cancelled. Bed wasn't the most comfortable. Shower leaked a bit but water was hot and good pressure.
The location at the U of C is excellent.
The room was two bedrooms, each with an individual keyed doors. The bathroom was an open shower stall that flooded the bathroom if used. The sitting area described is a common room on the floor not in the room. It took over two hours for them to have coffee for the coffee maker run up to our room. This would not be a bad place to stay for a couple of friends traveling together who only really need somewhere to sleep, but for a family traveling with two small children it was not what we went there expecting. I think the truth about the facility is why they have a no cancelation policy.
I liked everything about this hotel: staff was attentive and effective, site was clean and bright, parking was convenient, food was very good, complimentary breakfast was great - not a single complaint. The best possible hotel if you need to be on U of C site or even just the NW end of Calgary. I look forward to my return stay in January.
I liked the facilities and the location of this hotel.
