Stayed here twice this year. It is clean and comfortable The staff were reasonably friendly and helpful. Location-wise it's fantastic and handy for everywhere in town. The spa and jacuzzi is slightly strange - and basic - so don't expect luxury - but price-wise it's very reasonable.

Slap bang in the middle of Chamonix, loved it! No luxury, I guess it is rally for the ski crowd, who uses it as a base. Clean, but the bathroom needed a bit of TLC!

The hotel is excellent in all respects. Its close to the railway, road & cable cars. Its close to the city center & the rooms are top class. Was also impressed by the decor & the breakfast rooms. Cleanliness & hygiene are also well taken care of here. The views of the Mont Blanc are amazing

Everything is good except the staff. They were not interest to answer your questions about the information in Chamonix. Our booking included breakfast. They doulted it and asked for my booking paper with unfriend services, when I asked where and when we should go for the breakfast.

Pleasant place to stay: location is very good (just near the pedestrian area), with a small shopping center around. The room we had was big, with a balcony (I really appreciate this option), with an excellent view to Mont Blanc peak. Quite good wireless internet connection but not as a free option. Clean bathroom, with separate toilet. We recommended to...

You can get ice from the staff at the upstairs dining room. Really really nice large buffet breakfast. During ski season there is a whole other floor below for skis,...

Spent three nights at the Alpina in Chamonix. The location of the hotel is perfect, the view from the room of Mont Blanc is breathtaking, however the room needs badly updating. The separate toilet was tiny and together with the bathroom was covered in 1970's tiles. The hallways sported 'scuffed' wallpaper and smelt 'musty' it needs redecoration and updating, the...

We had read this hotel had been updated. Our room certainly had not been updated! Very basic with a tiny bathroom which clearly needed renovating. The public areas were a disgrace with stained carpets and grubby, shabby decoration which gave a very poor first impression. We used the restaurant for one breakfast, never again. Very few staff, tables not cleared,...

Great center of city location with convenient access to shopping and grocery next door. Beautiful view of Mont Blanc! Average rooms -good size and average cleanliness. Great separate toilet. Stayed on Bastille night so loud due to much celebrating outside. Overall great value for that area. Receptionist very helpful with questions.

We enjoyed staying at this hotel. It is located right in the center of this small mountain town. The rooms were spacious and clean; we had a balcony and awesome view to Mont Blanc. Food is excellent, the dining room again with a view. Staff was very professional and helpful. We would definitely stay here again!
